The Wiz Live December 14, 2015
Long Live Black Entertainment

So I finally set some time aside to see NBC’s The Wiz – Live. It was fabulous too! But I must admit, it wasn’t just the show itself; although I think they did a respectable enough job with the production. A big part of it was the quality and timelessness of The Wiz itself. The […]

Interracial Myths and Delusions

2015 has been a tough year for racism, race relations, and all types of social discrimination. Whether 2016 is going to be any better remains to be seen. I certainly hope so. Because all I see going on around me is very discouraging. It seems that almost every day, I come across two or more […]

Musings On The Racist Quotes of Mahatma Ghandi

The Atlanta Black Star published and article entitled Not All Peaceful: 13 Racist Quotes Gandhi Said About Black People. Now, I’m not very familiar with this publication, but I’m giving it a serious side eye right now. Why? Well because I’m not exactly sure what their endgame is here. Surely when it was posted on […]

Why Bibi’s Win Shouldn’t Upset American Liberals

Earlier today a co-worker asked about how I felt about Bejamin Netanyahu’s victory in the Israeli elections.

In spite of awaking […]

By being Jewish and having a Jamaican parent, it is very interesting to hear many of the stereotypes that I hear about both Jamaicans and Jews. It is also interesting how similar the misconceptions are between the […]

The Media, Not Racism Has Incited Nationwide Protests

I didn’t think that I would be writing about this (“this” being the Grand Jury failing to indict Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown). Originally, I wanted to post something on Facebook. But gauging from the types of responses I was reading on my wall, I could envision myself being attacked from both […]

Overcoming Apathy to Racism

Yesterday I came across an article on Diversity Inc. regarding a racist editorial cartoon that was run in a Pennsylvania newspaper that the editor later had to apologize for running (curiously, the cartoonist who drew the picture is not apologizing). I posted about it on Facebook, which resulted in the below: Post by Rishona Campbell.

Black American Economics 101

Since the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO (and the resulting aftermath) several weeks ago, I have seen and participated in many discussions regarding justice, racism, and Black economics. As frustrating and disheartening as some of these conversations have been, I’m very glad that I participated in them. A very common sentiment out there among non-Black […]
