Black Privilege? GTFOH. Seriously?

February 20, 2017

Sometimes, when I see inane shit on the news, or in my news feed on social media, I simply jot it down and promise myself a deeper dive later. Such was the case with this bullshit. Seriously, “black privilege” is a thing that actual grown folks who have, one would assume, at least SOME education, actually talk about…it’s NOT just a piece by Charlamagne Tha God. Now, unlike discussions of…

MItch Albom singlehandedly gave a class in privilege

September 16, 2016

I like Mitch Albom, I really do. I enjoy his writing, and I love to hear his commentary on ESPN when he is a guest. Granted, we may not always agree, but, in the end, I can at least see where he’s coming from…and also why he might feel his opinion is right. I have never listened to an opinion of his and thought he was dead wrong. And then…

WTF of The Week: Philly cop admires Nazi’s, so Philly FOP Prez admires him

September 2, 2016

The level that police will go to defend their own is astounding. Now..before you go calling me a “cop-hater”, lets get a few things straight. I admire and respect the police. My next door neighbor is a cop. Guy across the street? Cop. Guy four doors down? Cop. My friends and neighbors. And I respect them and the job they do, knowing full well I couldn’t do it. Not convinced?…

Blackish
June 16, 2015

I know a young lady, who I will not name, who is in her 20’s, runs an online blog, and also speaks out across the web on feminist issues. For the sake of clarity, lets call her “L —”. L — writes, speaks and tweets heavily on the ideas of equality for women in all areas. She will vigorously defend all things feminine, no matter how great or small. Shes…

WTF of The Week: What if you self-identify as black? #RachelDolezal

WTF of The Week
June 13, 2015

I read an op-ed piece a few weeks back, in the aftermath of the whole Bruce Jenner affair (“His mama named him Clay, I’ma call him Clay!“) that for the life of me I can’t find again or I would post it here. The gist of it was that the author would refer to Jenner as a man, forever, despite what Jenner wanted or what operations s/he had, because thats…

Equity: When you tell African-Americans they are too loud

WTFs Next - DAFUQ
June 2, 2015

Irvine, CA – Residents of an Irvine, CA apartment complex, many of whom are students at University of California, Irvine arrived home to find a flyer hanging in the elevator. Pay attention that third paragraph, which they nicely put into bold text. “We also would like to remind our African-American residents to keep conversation volume down and reduce music levels between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.” You know….cause ya’ll niggers…

No wonder white people don’t want to become a minority

May 31, 2015

No wonder white people don’t want to become a minority….minorities sure aren’t treated very well. (CNN) — Ronica Copes and her family have lived in their Long Island home for almost two years. But just last week, they received the most unwelcoming letter in the mail: “Attn: African-American family,” the letter said in all caps. “Lindenhurst is 84% white population. You don’t belong here!!!” It’s almost laughable, if it weren’t…

Do you REALLY want Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon to win?

The Internet has made amazing things possible, like freeing the Jena 6 and electing President Obama. None of it could have happened without an “open” Internet: one where Internet service providers are not allowed to interfere with what is seen and by whom. Now, Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon — the most powerful broadband providers — are trying to fundamentally change the way the Internet works. They’re seeking to make even…
