In one instance, Wainaina says, his mother was called a racist remark by a co-worker, and when she responded was told by superiors to "calm down" because she was "an employee first, an African second."

I remember seeing the cover for Cloudia & Rex #1 on Twitter some time ago and dropping whatever I was doing. Look, I wouldn’t lie to you, the cover had me hyped. I like seeing Black girls in comics, I like seeing Black girls on comic book covers. Speaking of the cover–I had no clue what was going on but it looked hella intricate and I was hell interested.



Cloudia and Rex are two sisters who are traveling with their mom, maybe a road trip, but it looks to me…

You published a featured article today about #MelaninMonday. Credit for Melanin Monday should be given to bonitaapplebelle from tumblr, not Young Paris. She created it first and started a movement on the site within the black community and he took the name and started plastering 'Melanin' on photos. Please give proper credit where its due.
