So we’re “leftists” now? WTF?

August 16, 2017

Recent events in the world have been stunning for people of color in America. Nothing in my mind has been more striking than the reaction to the events in Charlottesville, VA this past weekend. A wanna-be Nazi drove his car into a crowd of people, killing one and wounding over a dozen more. James Alex Fields Jr. who wasn’t from Charlottesville or even from Virginia for that matter, was in…

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…

My next door neighbor is a cop. Guy across the street? Cop. Guy four doors down? Cop. My friends…

Is Trump a bigot? Or just a bigot magnet?

August 29, 2016

Is Donald Trump a bigot? A racist? Neither? Both? The fact is, we don’t actually know. Nor can we, unless we know him in a personal sense. But, none of us actually does. Yes, his detractors can ALL point at some pretty bigoted and inflammatory stuff that has flown out of his mouth. But, his supporters can ALL dredge up just as many quotes that prove that Mr. Trump is…

Celebrate your Freedom with a read

July 3, 2016

Tomorrow, we, here in the US will celebrate our nationally recognized Independence Day. Amid the cookouts, fireworks, basking in the sun and laughing with friends and relatives, be sure to take a few moments and think about how GOOD you have it. Seriously. With all the recent strife here, the arguments about race and flags and who should be allowed to marry who and who should be allowed to have…

WTF of The Week: I don’t give a shit what you WANT the Confederate Flag to mean

June 25, 2015

Since the heinous crimes in Charleston last week, I’ve heard many people debating the Confederate Flag. First off, don’t send me any mail about how “it’s not called the Confederate Flag, its called the Battle Flag of Northern Virginia and blah blah blah”. I don’t CARE. If I say to 10 out of 10 Americans, “Confederate Flag”, the image they get in their heads it exactly what I’m talking about….
