Unpretty: Lena Dunham’s Missed Opportunity

That said, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t identify with part of the apology she posted on her Instagram page. She said: “Despite my moments of bravado, I struggle at industry … Continue reading Unpretty: Lena Dunham’s Missed Opportunity

Korryn Gaines and Waiting for Black Men to Say Our Names

A few weeks ago, after days of grieving the executions of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, I stepped off a train and into the streets to demand justice.

I … Continue reading Korryn Gaines and Waiting for Black Men to Say Our Names

I got on … Continue reading We Gon’ Be Alright: #ATLisReady Reflection

Lil Kim, Lemonade and Black Girl Pain

Almost a week later, people are still high on Beyoncé’s Lemonade. Despite repeated attempts from detractors, no one has been able to burst our Black girl bubble. Well, at least the one surrounding Beyoncé. As we downloaded Tidal and placed the album on repeat, Lil Kim dropped a picture on Instagram that set off a frenzy. In the photo, the rapper is almost unrecognizable due … Continue reading Lil Kim, Lemonade and Black Girl Pain

ANTP: 27 Questions Black People Have for Other Black People

Heller! By now, you’ve probably heard about a Buzzfeed video, 27 Questions Black People Have for Other Black People, that has collectively pissed off the Negro section of the internet. It pissed me the hell off but sadly, I wasn’t able to explain my disdain on this week’s episode of Three Fifs. So, I filmed a video version of my Ain’t No Thinkpiece segment.  I … Continue reading ANTP: 27 Questions Black People Have for Other Black People

#AintNoThinkpiece: Russell Schiller and #blackwomenarebeautiful

I’ve mentioned the podcast I co-host, Three Fifs Podcast, on this blog several times. However, I never told you about Ain’t No Thinkpiece. ANTP is a segment I have been doing on the ‘cast for a few weeks now that consists of me ranting about stuff that I’m too lazy to blog about. I’m no one’s orator but I’m proud that I’ve been able to … Continue reading #AintNoThinkpiece: Russell Schiller and #blackwomenarebeautiful
