Before I jump into it, I want to explain why I'm spending energy on this particular case. For all of Lenard  McKelvey's fans, it comes down to 2 words, Black accountability. We can't lose energy when people within our own community are in certain ways more destructive then "The white man" This isn't a plot to destroy another Black man engineered by the #MeToo movement. I admit the potential for media attention may burn at the highest levels making it appear that powerful people are out to get him. All of...

1. Stop caping, Stop cooning, Stop tap dancing, Stop catering and last but not least Stop falling head over heels for wypipo. Don't go out of your way to give them any remorse or sympathy. Time to practice apathy because one day, these same people who say they are not racist but keep the white power structure intact will have to decide if they want to ignore the problems of Black people or tip toe around Black issues while clinging on to their privilege. 2. Stop defending Black celebrities. They are just as...

Black Family, Dating / 26.07.2017

First things first, I didn’t always believe in Black Love…… At an early age I fell victim to brainwashing, bombarded with eurocentric beauty standards growing up. This programming affected the way I approached non-black women compared to Dark skin women, when I grew older. I ended up convincing myself that all women are beautiful and color didn’t matter but that was a clever lie… In my mind, white women were always number 1 when it came to approaching and dating women. In my last committed relationship, I thought that...

Since I wrote my reaction on a piece about how women should analyze men's wealth almost a year ago, I've gone through a lot of financial changes. It's been a long battle living on my own, paying bills, knocking down my debt and saving. My second  hurdle in my journey was eliminating all of my credit card debt, which I paid off at the top of this year. Even though it was only $1.2k of debt, it felt great to get rid of the burden, which is like a...

Sooooo Jesse Williams transformed himself into a fuck boi (allegedly) according to the latest break up rumors.  I don't know what exactly happened with his marriage but the way things are playing out, it still sounds like some shameful shit on his end. I'm going to have to point at his tribute to Black women during his BET speech last year (which I gave him props for). I had to ask myself, why did he mention those things if they were really separated for over a year? He could have...

One day, I'm going to build a strong Black family that will contribute to the strength of our Black nation and diaspora. It's much deeper than only having Black children, it's about building an empire, a legacy that my children will continue when I'm well gone. That's the vision the Black diaspora have been robbed of, most of us are born into a cycle of poverty and systematic racism. That is slowly coming to pass as the consciousness and genuineness of our people continues to accelerate. I'm single and...
