If A Black Man Can Date Out Of His Race And Still Be Respected, Why Can't A Black Woman?

When will a woman be accountable only for herself? Why should a person have their values or work questioned because of their partner? Black men get established all the time, then decide they prefer cream in their coffee. I don’t want to come across as the bitter woman, because that’s not the case, but when I ask why people date outside their race these are the answers I receive (please clutch your pearls).   1. Black women don’t know how to be subservient. 2. Black women can’t handle me or don’t know to act. 3. Black women are not freaky enough. 4. I find...

Strength Of A Woman= It's Lit

Mary brought her whole life on this album; it lived up to the expectations. This was well thought out. It showcased every stage of a bad break up and at the end, I was ready to grab my revenge dress.   She proved her relevancy without trying too hard like some celebrities. Her collaborations were unique choices that amplified her style. Kaytranada is an undercover lit artist, Migos and DJ Khaled are the hottest things out, Prince Charlez helped create a beautiful ballad. Kanye is in a class of his own, most hate to admit how dope he really is....

Is Hip-Hop Ready For Androgyny?

Masculinity in hip-hop has been a repeated topic in recent years, which has resulted in countless memes. The older generation thinks that the new generation is bat shit crazy. While the new generation is beyond frustrated because the old heads don't understand.   This brings me to my latest subjects. Lil Yachty and Lil Uzi Vert are two very flamboyant, yet unapologetic men in an arena where that’s frowned upon. Flashback twenty years ago, there were men who were just as flamboyant. Prince and Larry Blackmon of Cameo are the ones who come to mind. No one ever questioned them before they reached their legendary status. Why won’t we let these two brothers...

See Me

Charlemagne Tha God made a statement that's disturbing, yet it had a lot of truth it. Everyone has read the verdict to the Terence Crutcher case and sadly I’m not shocked.  Before it used to evoke a reaction with the officers being indicted, but it really doesn’t because this feels like modern day lynching. I sincerely feel like the police have permission to kill with permits; long as the people are poor who cares.  Minorities face a higher chance of not making it back home because of these circumstances.  While white parents have the luxury of only having the birds and bees...

Double Standards

  With Colin Kapernick still remaining unsigned makes you wonder, if there’s serious repercussions for being conscious.  Speaking as a black woman it has been ingrained in us, that we have to be twice as good in every aspect of life. Yes, he didn’t produce as much this season to downplay the backlash from bigoted fans. What do I mean by that last statement? I’ll explain in full detail what I meant; when you’re great in your field, then antics pulled outside of work could be overlooked.          Prime example that can be used is when Ray...
