Hope everyone’s holiday went well. I spent it listening to Luther Vandross records with a buddy of mine, which was an extremely fulfilling experience. It might be a Quiet Storm kind of summer until the weather gets colder. Me and my fellow faithful black men enlightened by 4:44 praying for rob & chyna pic.twitter.com/mLqtH7Sy8Y — […]

A slave master, four centuries ago, could avoid legal sanction for using lethal force against his enslaved property by simply saying the latter opposed correction. “I was disciplining my slave, who then resisted.” Utter those magic words and the state would level no punishment if the master committed homicide. A police officer, now, can avoid […]

Should we bring a gun? It’s not exactly the question you think would come to mind while planning a leisurely getaway. But as my husband and I packed for a long weekend of culture, Southern cuisine and a well-deserved rest, it was one we repeatedly and seriously asked ourselves. We were headed to the Spoleto […]

The police dashcam execution of Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota, was released to the public Tuesday. And if you’re like me, you just don’t have time for this sh*t. Not today, not any day. The lesson from this case, this recorded lynching of another black man, is that white supremacy doesn’t give a damn about […]

The fight continues in Washington, D.C. And no, this one has nothing to do with President Donald Trump. On Monday, the Washington Redskins secured a small victory with a Supreme Court ruling that deemed the law preventing the team from registering trademarks with the word “Redskins”— or “offensive trademarks” — as unconstitutional. The controversial team […]

Drake is like that kid at school who is otherwise cool, but then when he invites you over for a slumber party is just all sorts of reckless because he’s in his own house. This run-in with Kevin Durant was a classic “you play too much.” Diamond Reynolds is not exactly a household name, but […]

Killings. Protests. Conversations. More killings. More protests. More conversation. There is no cure for this infectious trifecta that continues its extending road to nowhere while its symptoms become harder and harder to treat. Police killed at least 102 unarmed black people in 2015 alone. The numbers in 2016 continue to grow. Now, community leaders are […]

“I’ve literally had enough” is the message I received from my 15-year-old brother. I watched the Philando Castille and Alton Sterling videos, but not over and over. I would like to say that I was shocked at the events that occurred, but instead I had to turn my cringing head before hearing a gunshot sink […]

As a proud American, a father who lost his own dad in a senseless act of violence, and a black man, I have been deeply troubled by the deaths of African-Americans at the hands of law enforcement and angered by the cowardly and hateful targeting and killing of police officers.
