"A) you're very pretty. B) more importantly I think you were dealing with something I've come to term "black mentality". It's an issue I've had to deal with all my life. The funny thing about it is that for me anyway,…"

OP-ED: "My Black Is Not Your Black, And That’s Okay"

Posted on October 17, 2014 at 9:36am 8 Comments

As a 30-something year old black woman, I pride myself on having embraced my differences. This was not so much the case back in my mid-20s when I was struggling with my so-called “otherness” during a time when most people were trying to figure out who they are. I don’t eat fried chicken (anymore, at least). I do yoga. I obsess over Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. I can express at length the differences between Aerosmith and Guns ‘N Roses. Kayaking and wine tasting are two of my…

OP-ED: "Let's Talk About The Pressure To Be The 'Right' Kind Of Black Girl"

Posted on October 10, 2014 at 8:37am 5 Comments

I spent a good portion of my life trying to be better than the best. I was always the first to jump at an extra assignment or task, to show everyone that I was capable. But for what? Why?

It was late at night and I couldn’t sleep. I was sick as a dog but that wasn’t why I was up. The next day’s schedule was overstuffed in a way that felt necessary to me, at the time. I felt like absolute crap but was still wrestling with the idea of calling off the next day. It was then…

FEATURE: Beasts of Brown Nations: How imperialism changed the way Black people relate to animals

Posted on October 3, 2014 at 8:34am 5 Comments

It's 2014 and the United States of America has never had a black host on a show about animals. The visibility of cultural diversity in any given field greatly affects a child's propensity towards said field. Even greats like Neil DeGrasse Tyson struggled with committing to a discipline that lacked role models from his community. This lack of diversity can be…

FEATURE: "I learned to be Black in America, while still not being 'Black enough' for some"

Posted on September 24, 2014 at 11:37am 3 Comments

It was in America that I learned to be black. In the predominantly small white town we moved to in Upstate New York; in the nasty ways young kids behave to other young kids they perceive as different, dangerous. In the way my seventh grade teacher evaded my innocent question of what the word "coon" meant. It was during lunch, with the chaotic buzz of several dozen prepubescent children going on when I approached her and posed my question. Her large, brown eyes looked into mine…
