Understand, that life as we know it doesn’t go back to normal this weekend. We don’t have the luxury of pretending we do not see what is happening in this nation. We don’t get to ignore everything that is going on around us. We don’t get to sip mint juleps served over crushed ice as the nation burns.
For her son’s funeral in Chicago, the mother of Emmett Till, Mamie Till, insisted that the casket containing his body be left open, because, in her words, “I wanted the world to see what they did to my baby.” The photo of Till’s severely beaten and bloated body […]
Dear Kamala or Susan, They will call you aggressive. They will mock your body shape. They will say you are cold. They will say you are unfriendly. They will send you hate mail. They will say you are mean. They will demand you fix everything wrong in this […]
It was escalation that has changed the very course of his life and the course of this nation. Only a man ignorant of his BLACK history would dare speak about justice not being achieved through escalation. I would advise Daniel and this state to accept that your life will never be business as usual again. Until there is justice for Breonna Taylor we will continue our escalations until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.
THIS REPORT WAS A SLAP IN THE FACE TO ALL BLACK WOMEN! This report was another way of killing the legacy of Breonna Taylor over and over again. Every single day we fight and wait for justice. 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!
It’s the 911 call that has been heard around the world. By now, I know many of my readers have watched the video between dog choker walker, Amy Cooper and bird watcher, Christian Cooper, however the video is posted below. When I told you women like Karen are […]
I honestly could stop right at the title, but let me make this clear because I have seen this time and time again online, and it is highly frustrating. Today Vice President Joe Biden made a stupid remark to radio talk show host, Charlamagne Tha God, stating that […]
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 […]
In the year of 20-I -WISH-A-MUTHAFUCKA-WOULD-20, I ain’t explaining ONE THING to ANY White person with a “Let-Me-Speak-To-The-Manager” Haircut! When it comes to my life and the way I move throughout the world, I AM THE FUCKING MANAGER!
Let me be clear, in the words of our great ancestors, “YOU GOT BLACK FOLKS FUCKED UP!”
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.
