Baltimore, Freddie Gray, and the Killing of Unarmed African-Americans The recent homicide of Freddie Gray in Baltimore is tragic to say the least. I remember a time when most African-Americans /Blacks felt safe around the police. Now, when I see a police officer, all feel disgust, anguish, and uneasiness. I know that not all police […]

About What Raven-Symoné Said I, like many others watched Oprah’s Where Are They Now interview with Raven-Symoné. Many of you may remember her as adorable Olivia on the hit show The Cosby Show from way back when. On Sunday’s episode, she made one statement that I knew would cause a stir on social media. She […]

Nothing New: My Thoughts on Donald Sterling I’ve been working in corporate America for 20 years. I got my first job at a law firm when I was 18 years old. With that being said, I’m no stranger to people pretending they’re not racist as hell while acting as though they’re ready to get in […]

Trayvon-Martin

On Saturday, I truly understood why some say the justice system has failed African-Americans. I tried my best not to write about the Trayvon Martin case. When the killing took place last year, I decided not to write about it because I truly wanted my blog to be a place that didn’t discuss some of […]

#Paula’sBestDishes: Paula Deen’s Use of the N Word Goes Viral One of the many things I love about blogging is that I have a platform to say what the hell I want to say. Today, we had another case of “celebrities talk too damn much news” when Paula Deen’s use of the N word went […]

Julep: More than Just Polish Can I take a moment to say how much I love my Julep Maven deliveries every month? I’ll admit that out of all the beauty boxes, Julep has never let me down. I haven’t received one box that I was disappointed with. I have to give fierce accolades to them […]
