FEATURE: A Month in Africa - Going back to Zambia 21 years later

Looking down from the plane at the patches of light winking up at me below, my stomach did backflips – and it wasn’t from the turbulence. In about 20 minutes I’d be landing on a continent that I should call home but seemed far from it. Africa. A city called Lusaka in a country called Zambia to be exact. This is the city I was born in and swept away from before I could even speak so that my parents could start a new life in England, which came to be my home and all that I knew. Revisiting my…See More

OP-ED: Yes, we need African-American history classes

Posted on July 15, 2014 at 1:51pm 6 Comments

"Why should they have their own classes? I don't understand what the big deal is." Flabbergasted. Shocked. In my head, I resembled Munch's "The Scream", but I am sure I appeared more calm than the inner turmoil I was experiencing. I stared at my high school classmates circa 1988 or so, none of which were African-American—some were Japanese-American, Mexican, Jewish, perhaps Armenian but in that particular class none were black or else the words would not have been…

FEATURE: Black Person launches a crowd-funding campaign to acquire some white privilege! lol

Posted on July 14, 2014 at 12:00pm 5 Comments

A New York-based person launched a crowd-funding campaign full of humor, because they want to "acquire some white privilege".

Yaya M. says: "Although I have layered oppressions that have affected my ability to access my slice of the American Pie™, no issue has affected me more readily than my lack of white privilege. From being assumed to have "cheated" my way into programs for gifted children AND college (via affirmative action), to having my natural hair viewed as…

OP-ED: You Have Your Black Love, I Have Mine

Posted on June 23, 2014 at 12:27pm 6 Comments

It only took me three years to write this article. It took three years of question avoidance, to bring to me to this point. After three years, I finally have an answer. The question? Well, the question is always the same, “but what about ‘Black Love’ ?”. Now this question surfaces wrapped in different phrasing, but its core remains the same.

This questions surfaces consistently around the discovery of my partner’s racial and ethnic identity. I am proud of the love that…
