We have learned our lessons with what to call Black women, but we have never discussed it. Let’s have a conversation about what we can and cannot call women; I think we are remissed in what we call them. I also hope we can find middle ground, and stop calling women names. These are a list […]

Husbands…and The Friendzone

black man whispers to laughing woman

*Let’s get this out the way now.  There is a subset of married men who thinks it’s possible for them to be friendzoned.  Where this thinking comes from?  I have no idea.  By it’s very essence, the concept is almost impossible.  And yet, some men hold this particular pseudo-truth to be self-evident.* No doubt you’re […]

I think I speak for all people, regardless of race, gender or class, when I say… Now I know, i’m not the only one who wonders if this is real or not. I’m just a bit skeptical that people are this ignorant. However, I realize that the current state of racism in our country has […]

I have mixed feelings on the n-word. Let’s be clear, there’s a big difference in the application of the word whether it ends with an “a” or “er.” However, the word has been in use for the purposes of hate longer than it has been in use for love. Now more than ever I think […]

The Black Folks Enrollment Form: For Non-Black Folks

Access granted or denied?

For a long time, I’ve always played the character that Black men play very well. It’s a good way to end up left, dead in the first 45 minutes of a serious situation, or in jail without bail money. That’s right, I’ve played the token Black guy in a lot of movies (yep, my life is […]

When's the last time you saw two Black officers and a white boy in handcuffs?  Don't worry, i'll wait.

When’s the last time you saw two Black officers and a white boy in handcuffs? Don’t worry, i’ll wait. Today, I came across two articles worth sharing.

5 Things Men Say That You Can Take With a Grain of Salt

Not included on this list: "I would never date a white girl."

In my former life, you could have expected a post called, “5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Listen to Women.”  They way I’m feeling these days, eh… you may see that post one day, but it doesn’t really interest me, probably would have only written it for your entertainment.  (This is an example of seeing the […]
