I Get It, LL Cool J, I Have White Friends, Too
For years, I have had White friends. I made my first White friend when I began taking private harp lessons for my sixth birthday. My harp instructor planned recitals for all of her students, and when I arrived at our first practice, I found myself surrounded entirely by White people. As a six year old born and raised in Detroit, this was my first time being left in a room where I was the only...

God is Evil
In a melody recognizable to most, Joan Osbourne once wondered “what if God was one of us?” Today in church, while working really hard to completely ignore all the things happening about me, I figured it out. If God was “one of us” (and by that I’m assuming she means… real) he’d be sitting on death row, and labeled one of the most vile, evil humans to ever...
WARNING: Plot spoilers alert! Let me preface this post by telling you all of the things that I am not: I am not a Quentin Taratino fan, or even a big movie fan for that matter; accordingly, I am not a movie critic; furthermore, I am not heavily into pop culture critique either. But here we go nonetheless. I saw Django Unchained honestly without having seen a single trailer, or really knowing...
When Tar Flows Upriver
Sometime in September, the non-profit organization where I work was set to have an event at a popular store, who, in partnership with a brand of running shoes, was donating money to our after-school program. The event consisted of a class of our after-school students coming in to meet a professional athlete, some Q&A, a check presentation and tons of pictures. The event was supposed to begin...

A few weeks ago, a video surfaced of rapper Lil’ Reese grabbing, punching and ultimately stomping a young woman while his male friends stood around and cheered him on. This was, of course, not the first time the abuse of a Black woman has been capture and publicized. Shortly after Chris Brown’s attack against Rihanna, pictures went viral of her sustained injuries. A bus driving...
Theory of Evolution v. Supposition of Creation
As humans, we have a profound sense of self-awareness. We are cognizant of our own existence, of life and death and of the complexity that distinguishes us. An inevitable consequence of this awareness of our own being is a quest to understand ourselves, and where we came from. Why are we here, and how did we get here? Cultures across the globe have address these questions differently since the...

Also, religion gives many Blacks a sense of hope, you know, "If it had not been for Jesus on my side, I don't know where I'd be."

Brown v. Board of Education Ruined Everything,...
[This is a journal I wrote in response to a heated class discussion that happened many months ago. When discussing “neo-segregation” of urban education, particularly in the North, I made the comment that Brown v. Board of Education opened the doors to cementing educational segregation while allowing elitist Whites to control urban education. This comment triggered, uncoincidentally, an...

How Obesity Justice is Inherently Feminist &...
Many people regard obesity as a condition plaguing the lazy, and the unmotivated. Obesity is the result of losing the war of will, or so the folk theory goes. Because we are apt to seeing obesity as resulting from an individual’s choices, many of us are unlikely to be sympathetic to those classified as obese. Some of us hold quiet contempt; others of us are juvenilely cruel. Obesity,...
