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 […]

Death All Around Us

Yesterday Brandon Bernard was killed by the U.S. government and a system that disproportionately sends black men to the slaughter and on a whim and at a moment’s notice.  Yesterday, over 3000 people died from the coronavirus and we are on track to match that number again today. By Sunday evening as we all settle […]

The Conundrum

It’s 6:46 AM. I’m up, crying, saddened with a heavy heart and clenched cheeks. My stress has already consumed me and I haven’t even gotten out of bed yet. The sun hasn’t risen so I can hide for a little longer. My mind is racing. I’m thinking about everything. A worrier by nature, I just […]

Onward & Upward: This Is Only The Beginning

For many, 2020 was a test. A test of strength, resilience, faith, patience, and resolve. As a black person in this country there was a pop-quiz everyday that was not only re-traumatizing but dared to threaten our lives and snatch us away.  We have seen some of the worst behavior play out in this country […]

Thinkin About It | Trump, Karma, and The Election

Let the church say YEESsssss! Won’t He do it! Man, talk about a full circle moment. After being held hostage for four days as the senior usher board counted up the remaining votes in key battleground states, we were released on Saturday morning. The whole ordeal was emotionally taxing. To be such a close race […]

Ready or Not, You Can’t Hide: The Lesser of Two Evils

With only a few weeks left until Election Day, things are getting heated. 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 […]

I’m Speaking

#Momala aka Senator Kamala Harris did not come to play last night. Hopefully you were able to watch the one and only vice presidential debate before the election. If not please pull it up on YouTube and watch it. While Kamala’s faces were a whole black mama mood and Vice President Mike Pence’s pink eye […]

How Did We Get Here?

Today’s post was inspired by the 1998 hit, Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here, by Canadian R&B songstress, Deborah Cox. In this 1998 hit, Deborah repeatedly posed the question of how this guy came onto the scene and basically swept her off her feet after being burned by love too many times before. Sis was perplexed […]

Twerk Team Be Damned

Now I know that the Meg/Torey Lanez story is somewhat old and many are over it, but I was compelled to pin this post after encountering ignorance yesterday. I want to talk about the behavior behind this constant disrespect of black women for […]
