All skinfolk ain’t kinfolk

Am I the only one that gets goosebumps when they hear this phrase? It’s a statement so glaringly truthful that it hurts to even hear it. Maybe hurt isn’t the right word but how else should we feel when people who are “supposed” to have our backs turn around and stick a knife in it? Resentment comes to mind. This statement is one which puts … Continue reading All skinfolk ain’t kinfolk

Acting white or acting right?

Those who literally have no self control. If that’s you then yes I’m talking about you. Do you have to turn all of your thoughts on a particular … Continue reading Losing Control

  Good For You – Selena Gomez ft. Asap Rocky I just want to look good for you. As I listen to this song I can’t help but think about the perpetuation of the traditional female role. Here’s another song about a woman wanting to please her man and looking for his approval. What does this song say to the younger generation of girls? Should … Continue reading Shut up or Shape up!

Most of us live in free countries where its okay for someone like Nicole to speak her mind.
