“The body was not designed to be sick. Bird doesn’t get sick. Elephant doesn’t get sick; he needs no vet. The lions doesn’t need a vet, neither is a giraffe or any of the natural animals. Why do we get sick? There has a been a violation that is costing us our life today. And…

Nubian Beauty

Greetings Good People, If there’s one thing I love to see, it’s beautiful black women with confidence.

Nature vs. Black America

As hopeful as this clip was, I still found myself annoyed—not with Hurricane Harvey survivors, the Richard family, but with the circumstance. Because this scene and the results are all too familiar.

Color Blind or Blind To Reality?

Initially, I wasn’t going to address the topic of interracial relationships. But after seeing my community’s response to Dr. Umar Johnson’s Roland Martin interview, I would be doing a disservice if I didn’t finally get some things off my chest. Before I delve into my personal views on this topic, let’s go back in history…
