STACY DASH & SARAH PALIN have treated us this past week to exercises in “How to Excel in Inanity and Ignorance While Making a Profit.”
These traits, which they both have become known for having exceeded their 15 minutes of fame long ago.
Stacy Dash may win this round however with her recent comments over on the Outnumbered show which airs on Fox where she was asked about the University of Virginia news asking female students to refrain from attending frat parties in order to circumvent potential rape scenarios. Aside from referring to grown women as “girls” which she corrected herself on – she goes on to say that she thinks it’s a good policy and that “good girls” should stay home where it is safe. She continued on to say that its bad girls that go out to be naughty and get drunk and over drinks?

That they profit off of such behavior says more about society’s affinity for listening to this stuff than each as individuals. Although still to this day beauty remains only skin deep and you still can’t fix stupid.
In the current popular discourse on so many topics one has stood out profoundly for me. I have repeatedly refrained from speaking much on the topic of Bill Cosby and the current allegations against him involving allegations of rape going back over twenty years. The topic itself has been the
When I think of a man being effeminate, I think of a man being the total opposite of manly. Actually, I consider him taking on all those things that should be relegated to womanhood. Some of the more “soft” actions that are happening now should not be accepted. Yet, here we are (in the 21st

Raven Symone does not want to be referred to as “African American” or “gay”. When I first heard these statements, they did/didn’t surprise me one bit. One side of me thought it was denial. The other part of me realized that Raven Symone didn’t want to be boxed in. Still, her statements

Whenever I think of the rape culture that permeates within this society, I think of how men help promote the lunacy. It makes me think of that tweet Cee Lo Green produced to justify his imprudent behavior. It also makes me believe of the trials and tribulations women suffer at the hands of men.
With all the attention on Ferguson, it can be easily said that there is a war waged against our Black males. People can say that I am exaggerating, but the situations do not lie. When the killing of a black male is met with derision, media shaming, changing of the subject, and respectability
Cee Lo Green has amassed plenty of fame and wealth for himself. When his career began, he was the loquacious and grounded emcee from Goodie Mobb. His verses on wonderful tracks like “Cell Therapy” and “Beautiful Skin” put him in the realm of emcees that could control a microphone.

Once again, this nation – well, most of it – stands in shock of another killing spree perpetrated by a young white male. We mourn the loss of life at the hands of mad-crazed violence. Some among us wonder why such a thing happened in the first place. The media jumps onto the story about
