Dear Trolls: Show me proof of racism so that I can reject it!

It’s great not to be alone when dealing with crap. Other people know what you’re talking about and often sympathize. If you’ve ever been in a forum or thread about racism, you may have seen that one clown that demands of proof of racism. Evidence is presented from articles, excerpts from books or books themselves, videos, charts, data, statistics, graphs,...

New Study Finds News Outlets Promote False, Negative Portrayals Of Black Families

This article is originally posted on Blavity.com by the Blavity Team. It explains what has been said for years, but a recent study has confirmed that most American media has depicted black people, black families especially, in a bad and stereotypical light. There’s an excerpt: The study’s researchers reviewed over 800 local and national news pieces published or aired between January...

There’s no Use Talking to White folks who Say They’re Victims of Racism

I've admitted a few times that I, myself, am racist. Although, it may not be a correct self-assessment. I'm more prejudiced than racist as I have no power to drive the prosperity of non-blacks and only non-blacks down while plotting ways to diminish any hope for them to be on par with us in any way due to loathsome...

Talking About the Harmful Things the Privileged Do Isn’t Hatred

And by ‘privileged’, I don’t mean rich people, at least not alone. I mean people afford societal advantages based on inherit traits i.e. skin color, gender, sexual orientation, etc. I talk about white racism…a lot. So, I’m assumed to hate white people, or so it’s believed. There’s nothing intricate about it. It’s an open-and-shut case, a zero-sum game. Not to throw...

Tyrod Taylor and the Struggle of the Black Quarterback 

Just days prior, Tyrod Taylor was benched by his team. And no, he didn’t deserve what happened to him. The Buffalo Bills were looking way better than they had been looking years prior. That is until they made changes to their roster that affected their offense and defense. Also, it makes no sense when Taylor only had one really...

You Too, Al Franken? Woman Claims Politician Sexually Assaulted Her

I'm not happy about this wave of sexual harassment claims for two reasons: One, some of the people accused are ones I actually looked up to at one point. And two, even though this society is brewing in a stew of toxic masculinity as it's always been, the stream of new allegations coming to light proves that it's actually...

This Is Not a Thinkpiece About Puerto Rico

My tía and tío have a home in Aguadilla. I’ve often dreamt about it since my childhood. Stalks of flora taller than me are nestled beside their garage door. I note that they look like feathers jutting from the soil, and that the house itself, with a roof that’s creamy and slightly off-white, reminds me of my skin when...

What About White-On-White Crime and White Terrorism?

We've been here before many times, and I already can tell what the reaction is from some folks. This post will be deemed racist against white people. I will be called a racist. But in the past couple of months, it can't be denied that white male criminality and terrorism has gone into overdrive, at least in the mainstream...

Bill O’Reilly Takes Responsibility for His Sexual Harassment by Blaming God

Le sigh! The stories of powerful men exposed as serial sexual predators reveals what some of us already know, society is awash with toxic masculinity with rape culture thrown in the poisonous mix. Some dudes with wealth and power believe they can do whatever they want to whomever they want and get away with it. But in recent years, they're...

The Week in Blackness: Smoke, Slavery, and Sexism

This week in blackness had many of us profoundly proud or sadly subdued in head shaking shame. And the week started off strong with the profound feeling of blackness. We had a moment with Shannon Sharpe and the new episode of Blackish dropped. After that, things took a turn for the worse as Cam Newtoncame out saying something foolish. All of that...

I Can’t Think of a Clever Title for this Article, Because Writing About Gun Violence is Draining

Last year around this time, I wrote about my close encounter with a shooting at a club. The summary is one you're probably familiar with. Crazy-ass niggas started fighting most likely over dumb shit that ended up with one of them pulling a gun popping into a crowd and injuring a person or two, some who probably weren't even...

Listen, So-Called Patriots: Black People Love America Too!

I wasn’t sure where to start. I wasn’t even sure what to say. But then, I realized that if they don’t understand by now, then an average blogger like me will have better luck trying to persuade a flea not to bite a dog’s ass. In the end, this is for those willing to listen from someone involuntarily representing...

What Is It Like Being Black in America?

Before you read this, please know that I DID NOT write this piece. This was written by a black physician who wrote about an incident he encountered in a Facebook group called "Stories of The Moment". This is his story: I’m a black man. I’m about 6’2″, average build. Nothing too fancy. I think I look normal, not intimidating in...

Jemele Hill Once Again Proved Trump Aint Shit

I would be surprised at the backlash against Jemele Hill if it wasn’t 2017. And 2017 has been apparent in its mind-numbing dismissiveness and bullshit. Instead of a nation that has come together, we have reveled in our separation. You have plenty of races tired of white people making excuses for their obvious privileged and dissonance. To counter, you have white (and some step-n-fetchit black...

White Guy Accidentally Shoots Himself, Blames A Black Guy

From Raw Story: Minnesota man was arrested on Wednesday after he accidentally shot himself in the arm—then told police he was attacked by an armed “black male.” Brent Patrick Ahlers, a 25-year old security guard at St. Catherine University, shot himself in the shoulder Tuesday night, prompting a campus-wide lock-down and building-to-building school sweep, City Pages reports. Authorities conducted an “exhaustive”...
