Review: Imperius Rex – Sean Price

In the mid-90s, I was a high schooler. I feel a certain way about the hip-hop I allow myself to consume. Summer 1996, Heltah Skeltah released Nocturnal, an album unlike anything I had heard to that time and I was a fan. At the time, I thought Rockness was the better lyricist of the two but they were both...

The Best Explanation of Whiteness to Date!

Ever noticed how white people get anxious and nervous as hell when the word 'white' is mentioned in terms of race? Through experience, when mentioning or discussing whiteness, white privilege, white supremacy, white anything, there is at least one white person that will pop up and go on the defensive as if the discussion was about him or her....

Don’t Be Skurred: The Cowardice of White Supremacy

Some people feel big, bad and bold, but only from a safe place whether it's from behind a computer screen or the false cover that they are untouchable. Naturally, we call them punks, bullies, and cowards, among other things. We know they're only putting on fronts, pretending to be more bulletproof than they actually are. But when the shit...

Ventriloquist Dummy Condemns Charlottesville White Supremacists

Today on live television, I watched a ventriloquist dunny that resembled Donald Trump say some bad things about white nationalists who were in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. You may recall there was a huge event that started with a feel of a college tiki party last Friday night. Apparently, many of the participants were hung over from the previous...

White Supremacists Go On Rampage in Charlottesville, Virginia

If you have watched the news or been online at all today, I am sure you’ve heard about the protests of Neo-nazis, Klansmen, and other far rightists that descended on Charlottesville, Virginia. They’re violent and are deadly serious about their intentions. In a battle with anti racist protesters, one member of the Industrial Workers of the World was killed when...

The Usher Herpes Case Is Severely Depressing: Here’s Why

I honestly wasn't going to say a word about the current hullabaloo surrounding a celebrity whose legacy, reputation and career are in critical condition. After dealing with the fallout from the Bill Cosby trial and new disturbing revelations concerning R. Kelly, part of you believes that some powerful force is not through with destroying famous black folks. Either that,...

#Charlottesville: Welcome To The Terrordome

charlottesville_protests
  It wasn't a dark and stormy night, it was a nice warm summer evening in Charlottesville, VA. Clear skies and a cool summer breeze. The darkness was gradually chased away by the flicker of torches, the silence broken by chants of "Blood and Soil".  Several unfortunate souls were accosted on their way home from church and subjected to racial...

I Can’t Believe I’m Defending Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler was signed this week by the Miami Dolphins. The fact that Cutler was coaxed out of retirement and Colin Kaepernick was overlooked has angered many. For many, Cutler being offered a one-year deal worth $10 million with $3 million in incentives, serves as proof that Kaepernick is being blackballed. To them, Cutler's signing justifies the argument that...

HBO’s ‘Confederate’, Black Fears, & White Tears

A few weeks ago, HBO issued a press release that show runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss of “Game of Thrones” were leading the charge for a show entitled “Confederate.” The press release states that it will posit what would have happened post-Battle of Antietam in 1862 where a lost field order fell into the hands of the Union army....

Immigration: Let’s Make America White Again, Because Why Not?

Let's talk about immigration, shall we? Ever notice that nobody ever highlights the fact that the fastest growing racial demographic in America is Asian? The Asian population is growing faster than the Latino population. Yes, it really is. Even more interesting is that you never hear the anti-immigration crowd argue that we need to cut legal immigration because Asians are...

Kamala Harris Shouldn’t Be The Presumptive Democratic Nominee

Because the administration of Trump was a veritable dumpster fire even before the inauguration, the Democrats never had the usual trial by fire and public shaming that the losing party normally gets. There was never an opportunity for the Democratic party to listen to its constituents and perform a full autopsy on just how catastrophic the 2016 election was....

The Breakfast Club Is The Radio Show For Fuck Shit

The Breakfast Club was a favorite of mine during morning work commutes. Mostly, it was the conversations and interviews that kept me engaged. Also, there would always be some type of “gossip” type of information that would allow me to analyze the lives of famous people. And then, there was The Donkey of the Day segment. I must say...

Colin Kaepernick is a 40 Million Dollar Slave

2017 and we still reference this man. People still stand by him or vilify his actions. We either threaten boycott or tell him he should have been a good boy. If Shannon Sharpe doesn’t support him, it is guaranteed that Ray Lewis will wax rhythmic poetic to disagree like a new age Rev. Uncle Ruckus. So many take sides. And yet, we...

Donald Trump Needs A Permanent Vacation

It's August, so you know what that means? Yes, everyone is on vacation on Capitol Hill. Congress is away on vacation and your hard-working president is as well. He's about to take off for 17 days to hang out at his golf resorts and anywhere that doesn't resemble the "dump," he calls the White House. My guess is that a...

Ray Lewis Says Kaepernick Should Keep Activism “Private”

Like Michael Vick recently, former NFL player and Hall-of-Famer Ray Lewis, said a stupid thing intended as advice to Colin Kaepernick. Lewis, the former Baltimore Raven linebacker posted a video via Twitter with what appears to be a message of encouragement. This turned out to be an epic fail on the part of Lewis. No stranger to saying stupid things unrelated...
