Deeper Than Rape

Whenever rape is brought up, the room tenses. Silence seeps in. Niggas get shifty. Energies begin to fill the air: pain, guilt, fear, avoidance, denial, anger, sympathy, dismissal. I‘ve seen it happen. I’ve felt it happen.  Read More

Will Dark Skinned Women Ever Be Loved?

Black is Beautiful, ALL Shades of Black.  You would think that this would be a no-brainer in these times of “wokeness,” but it seems that after all this time, many of us are still “color struck,” showing obvious favor to light-skinned people as opposed to those of us who are of a darker hue.

Respect and Black Men

In a drinking game segment, Drink Champs host Noriega asks guests to pick one: loyalty or respect. Most of the people I’ve heard go with loyalty, explaining that someone can respect you and still do you dirty.

An Open Letter to Black Sisters

One might have hoped by this time, by this day–in–age, that the very mention of what seems to have become merely the evening news would be so intolerable amongst us brothers that we might raise our fists for you and with you rather than ever again raise them against you.
