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

Following your friends

Okay so I know this is going to make me sound really old but I actually am an old soul. When I was growing up …..back in the good old days of late 1990’s, early 2000’s, following your friends meant something different than what it does now. In my culture “Following your friends” is a phrase that was never used in a positive light. It … Continue reading Following your friends

Acting white or acting right?

Yes, you read the title of this post correctly. Those of us (People of Color) who do not exhibit the stereotypical characteristics of our race and culture are accused of acting white. What does that even mean? How does being yourself mean that you’re suddenly trans-racial? Most say this jokingly, but there’s a little bit of truth behind every joke. It’s a way of telling … Continue reading Acting white or acting right?

Loose lips sink ships

Have y’all seen Den of Thieves yet? If you haven’t then you’re missing out. Yes, yes, I know everyone is flocking to watch Black Panther. That was great too. However, people are sleeping on Den of Thieves. The popular saying, “Loose lips sink ships” isn’t something that’s new but it was pivotal to the movie’s plot. I’ve been hearing it since I was a young … Continue reading Loose lips sink ships

This generation…smh

A few weeks ago I was at work and heard some of the older staff members talking about our generation. I figured they were referring to millennials when Logan Paul’s name was brought up. Who is Logan Paul? His relevancy to this topic is only as a horrid example of what millennials have to offer. Although, he doesn’t look that bad in comparison to Dylann … Continue reading This generation…smh

Yes, us young‘uns get tired too

“I hate when people tell me I can’t be tired because I’m young, like I go to school full time, work part time, I am mentally ill and I get frequent migraines. I am tired, don’t tell me I’m not” – Anonymous whisper user If you’re anywhere 30 and under I’m sure you’ve probably heard something like this from some bitter older folks who fail … Continue reading Yes, us young‘uns get tired too

Two messages are better than one

“Just because you can see the candle in someone, doesn’t mean that you’re meant to light it” This morning I was watching an interview by the Breakfast Club. Charlemagne Tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee were interviewing Amanda Seales. Until this interview I didn’t know much about her other than her accusation against Russel Simmons. About a month ago, amid the rape accusations, she … Continue reading Two messages are better than one

Losing Control

By the title of this post you’d probably think that I was going to start talking about something deep and emotional and blah blah.  Nope, I just have a bone to pick with people on the internet. 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
