They Live Among Us…

To be sure, these White people are not 70 million Ku Klux Klan members. They are not 70 million people decked out in preppy gear walking downtown streets with tiki torches. They are not 70 million people with shaved heads and swastika tattoos. That is the idea that many people need to get out of their heads. These are everyday people that you would see anywhere.

Dear Kerry Washington, Eva Can “Handle” Her Own Business

As Black women we are challenging White women to have difficult conversations with their friends and family. That challenge doesn’t stop for Black women because a White or non-Black person is your friend. The foundation of friendship is truth and honesty.

It is because I am your friend, I am going to challenge you.
It is because I’m your friend, we are going to talk about race.

But justice too long delayed is often justice denied. Because every day, this city reminds Black women that our lives do not matter. Our lives matter so little, the police can kill us, lie on an incident report, and put that bullshit incident report out in the media without batting an eye. There is absolutely no fucking accountability!

Karen Is You.

The Karen phenomenon has entered social media almost outdoing Becky With The Good Hair.  There are entire Facebook groups dedicated to Karen, t-shirts made about Karen, and daily I read a post or blog about Karen. So who is Karen? Karen is defined by Slang Dictionary as a […]

Are We Really In This Together?  Hell No!

Indeed, we were all facing the same virus, but we are not all having the same pandemic experience. It has become glaringly apparent that while we are all in the same storm, we are not all in the same boat. If America was out to sea and a storm set upon the ocean, many White people are on a cruise ship, and Black people are in dinghies.
