Lighting Is A Black Person’s Best Friend

I’ll be honest, I didn’t have much interaction with people who were not black until I moved to Orlando. Yes, I’ve worked with different races of people, but I grew up in Atlanta, which is a city with a booming black population.

So, I’ve Never Had A Christmas Tree

Where Have All The Ladies Gone?

My Godmother was a classy woman. I remember her telling me things like, “Cross your legs at the ankle dear,” and “Don’t pack your plate with food, you can always get more.” Yes, she was the perfect example of sophistication. She taught me all I know about being a lady. Now that I’m older, I think

Dear White People, “Nigga” Is Off Limits…

Dear White People, Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but… well actually I’m not sorry. Nope, I feel no remorse in letting you know that even though you live with a privilege that I will never have the opportunity to experience that this one thing is off limits to you. So, yes, the word
