Life & Reflection

Life As I Know It

It was the summer of 2010. My cousin Lloyd and I would stay in my living room for hours at a time discussing “the meaning of life?” Back then I had just graduated from high school and had no real grasp of life to say the least. For me when the argument got to whether […]

A Black Journalist’s Legacy

This summer we celebrated the 163rd birthday of Mrs. Ida B. Wells. An American journalist, newspaper editor, suffragist, sociologist, and an early leader in the Civil Rights Movement. For America she is the hero for the voiceless group of people who suffered greatly at the hands of an oppressive reality. Ida. B. Wells was the first black person to challenge the transportation […]

Why Do White People Care So Much

Earlier this week former CNN host Piers Morgan wrote an op-ed piece on the use of the n-word in black communities. In doing so, Morgan tried to solve the problems of black America with one simple solution, stop saying the word nigga. Well though I disagree with the overall gist of Morgan’s piece I can’t […]

Sunday Reflection: Being Happy

1 on 1 with Deron Cloud

PATisDOPE, a well known journalist & (to my knowledge) the biggest from my area, interviewed my father’s pastor. I try to check Pat’s channel often & i was surprised to see this one.  Mr. Cloud, the interviewee, always touches me every time i go to service or a play & to no surprise, there is […]

World's Toughest Job

  In 2014 women who do the same job as men make $.77 of every $1.00 their male equal makes. While women deserve equal pay for equal work. There’s a job that billions of women do everyday and get no pay at all. This video is for all those women.

Conscious Uncoupling?

  Ever heard of conscious uncoupling? Well I hadn’t either until about let’s say an hour ago. As I scrolled down my timeline I saw that actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay front-man Chris Martin were “consciously uncoupling”. Now with like most things on Twitter I had to confirm the news. More importantly, what is conscious […]
