So I was playing around on FB, minding my business as I always do. This post appeared in my timeline and it posed a very peculiar question, “How Can A Church Own A School And The Poor Can’t Attend It?” I scratched my chin and thought to myself. ‘very valid point.” It’s weird but all my life, I have come to know church school  educations to be synonymous with expensive tuition. It’s like peanut butter and jelly, the two just go together. Never until now have I stopped to evaluate how jacked up that is. The...

Soooo, I’m blogging from my living room today and I  just got through watching The Real. First off, the social media push that The Real got from Black Instagram should be applauded. If it was not for Kandi Burruss, Toya Wright, and a slew of others like them who’s post showed up in my timeline, I would not have know that today was the season premier. At any rate, I caught the last 30 minutes of Wendy Williams then rolled right on into The Real. Here’s what I think… First off, I’m a 33 year old gay black...

  Okay. Well. That was……….interesting and kind of entertaining. Hopefully y’all tuned in so you’ll know what I’m typing about, but if not, I’m sure E will air it again and again. The premiere episode of Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashians reality show entitled “Rob&Chyna” was delivered today for the masses.

Rapper Bobby Shmurda, born Ackquille Jean Pollard, and his two co-defendants, Chad “Rowdy Rebel” Marshall and Nicholas McCoy, have accepted a plea deal from the prosecution in a New York State Supreme Court hearing on Friday Sept. 9th.

Special prosecutor Nigel Farina offered a global plea deal to the four defendants Marshall, McCoy, Shmurda and Santino Boderick under the condition that...

For the life of me, I don’t know why Brianna Perry’s career isn’t further along than what it is. This girl is seriously talented. I love the way her voice just cruises over whatever beat she’s rapping too. Granted, I am partial to Brianna being that I’m from Miami. She raps in the dialect in which we speak from down there. However, Miami aside, mama can rap. No tea no shade, but Brianna puts me in the mind of Jackie-O. I’m sure she’s heard that before. It’s not shade. It’s actually...

There’s this unspoken uneasiness between the Black folks that live in Miami and those of us who have moved from Miami to other places like Atlanta, Houston, DC, etc. The running joke is those of us that moved to Atlanta and other densely Black cities that are prosperous for Black people think we are better than, or we think that moving away will solve all of our problems. Well, if you really want to know the truth about it, moving to Atlanta solved my biggest problem, STATYING ALIVE! The interesting thing is, when I moved away from...
