The Right Thing To Do     The "Right" Thing to Do.Part 1      Yo, for the past 8 months the frequency of so-called police brutality incidences in this country has become very alarming.  Young men and women are getting beat up while the old men and women are getting abused.  What's even more disturbing is violent crime is still the highest form of crime in this country.  You got more people afraid of the po-po than Ebola outbreaks!  Damn!  You would think after all this "publicity" law enforcement officials are receiving in public view it would cause some type of civil unrest.  It's like the law enforcement departments in this country secretly declared a war on its citizens.  Really though!  C'mon yo!  Look at Baltimore City Police officer Vincent Cosom, that dude sucker punched Kollin Truss!  Have you seen the footage!  But guess what?  It's NOT police brutality.  Yeah I'm saying it!  Here it...

Still Cooning: If the Real Jim Crow would have known then      I ain't gone lie, that Leslie Jones bit on SNL was hilarious!  Seriously, that shit was funny as hell and well performed but most important...truthful.  Be that as it may, it was still COONING.  What's so sad about it is that it still shows and proves that my people still have not got it together.  We still are a "broken-in" people whose future seems to be obviously the cause of the next amendment to be repealed which is the 13th. Every damn time, seems like it'll never change or at least get better.  This brings me to the question; what would the real Jim Crow would have done to Thomas Rice if he'd known this would be his legacy.  I believe it's safe to say he would have killed Rice.  Can you blame him?      Yes, Jim Crow was a real brotha who grew up in New Orleans...

Donald Sterling, "The Come Up".  The Price of Class at the Cost of Stupidity!      My man Donald Sterling has completed one of the slickest "Come Ups" in the 21st century.  Yes sir!  Gotta admit playa, you did your thang and I ain't mad at ya.        Yes I'm back!  Now can a brotha write this damn article, please?!   Sheesh!        Yo, Donald Sterling stands to make a huge profit for getting rid of a garbage-ass NBA team so smooth, y'all fell for the okey-doke.  Not me though!  He paid 12.5 million for the team in 1981 now the offer for a "mandatory" selling and purchase of the team is an estimated 680 million dollars!  After all the dust settles down from all the backlash and rants from the fans and players this dude will make a 667 million dollar flip! That's what's up!  Y'all think y'all did something especially you negroes.  I know Bernard Madoff is calling Donald...

     Ok, here we go again.  I already know some of y’all are thinking “Now he going after Paula!”  I’m not at Paula for her for saying Nigga or Nigger.  I wish more people would be literate and “real” about what they feel.  I’m mad at her for apologizing.  If you said it, then you said it.  How come it’s fair other entertainers say it and get away with it?  Am I making an excuse for her, no.  Paula Deen is a victim of Americana.  That’s a word I created in 2005.  It’s defined as an Americanized person.  All this bullsh!t about political correctness has gotta stop, seriously.  That old White lady ain’t no different than anyone who considers themself an American.  What’s an American?  If you can’t answer that then how in the hell y’all gone treat that lady like that?!  You know what’s even funnier?  99% of the...

  Interview with Amanda Reen   Amanda Reen is a thirty-three year old multiracial woman from rural Wisconsin who resides in the Boston area of Massachusetts with her husband Jeffrey and her daughter Olivia. I had the pleasure to meet Amanda while I was working on the series of interviews about the complex image of the African American woman. After we exchanged views briefly we both agreed that her story wouldn't fit in the African American series, and that the issues she was willing to discuss should be highlighted in a separate interview. So here it is, an honest and uncensored account on what it is like to be a person of both Caucasian and African American descent in today’s United States. Oana: Tell us about your experiences growing up as a person of both white and African American descent. Have you ever felt “disconnected” with any of those groups and why? Amanda:...
