The road ahead: Why 2021 won’t be the year of redemption

I don’t mean to sound like a Debbie Downer, but 2021 may not prove to be any better than 2020. Much of the disgust towards this year is heavily steeped in pure shock-value and the relentlessness that this year has had on serving up bullshit unfettered. This year will go down as the year of […]

The whole ordeal was emotionally taxing. To be such a close race […]

The Republicans have fledged full speed ahead and confirmed of Amy Coney Barrett, 45 both caught and beat COVID just in time to host a crowd surfing rally in lieu of his refusal to participate in a virtual presidential debate, and Ice […]

So Anxious…

Unfortunately for us, this anxiety is hitting different than it did for the ‘99 and the 2000 when Ginuwine dropped this epic body -rolling record. I don’t know about y’all but anxieties are running high as election day gets closer. Hell, race relations have gotten so bad you can cut the tension with a knife and don’t even get […]
