I talked myself in and out of writing this about 300 times, in the end this has to be said. Now, don’t it get twisted cause I know how much you all love to get it twisted. Beyoncé is probably one of the greatest entertainers alive but hold the phone… put the phone down. How could she drop one video and all of a sudden everyone is acting … Continue reading So Beyoncé’s Revolutionary Now?
When someone tells me “it’s not all white people” I’m always really confused as to what their actual point is. “It’s not all” has to be the deadest argument ever. You dare bring me that. It’s not all White people… And so! Where are these warrior White people who are ready and willing, to stand against all the wrongs and atrocities of their bastard forefathers and this bastard … Continue reading It’s Not All White People… And So?
I love how any talk of Black power makes people all nervous and uncomfortable. They be looking at you sideways.

Track back to their beginnings in the ice age, look at the cold, harsh environment, you can’t be surprised at how they turned … Continue reading Don’t Be Mad At White People, Be Smart
I’m all for Queendom but don’t call me a feminist. The very existence of feminism baffles me. Seriously, how can you come from a woman and then need to be told that she’s worthy of looking you in the eye? People often assume that I am, feminist, purely because I know I was was born to stand beside my man instead of behind him or … Continue reading Why I Reject Feminism
