FEATURE: Gun used by George Zimmerman to kill Trayvon Martin reportedly sold for $138,900

In this week’s edition of News That Makes Me Sick, that grown man who stalked and murdered 17-year-old Trayvon Martin has sold the murder weapon on United Gun Group where a user named “John Smith” (who claimed to be from Alabama) won with a last minute bid of $138,900. George Zimmerman’s decision to sell the firearm that enabled him to murder an unarmed minor marks a particularly ugly and shameful example of the callousness towards and dehumanization of black lives and bodies—particularly when…See More

FEATURE: Know Your Black History - Three Young Girls Triumph Over the Most Sinister Side of Slavery

This is the story of three young girls. Two are my relatives; the third is the relative of a family friend. Each girl was stolen from Africa and sold into slavery in the Americas. I consider the kidnapping and sale of children into slavery the most sinister side of slavery, if the evil of slavery itself can have a more sinister side. The reasons for kidnapping children are simple and fiendish. Children were easier to capture, kidnap and control than full-grown adults. Economically, kidnapping…See More

FEATURE: CNTRST website calculates total whiteness of main casts in over 20,000 movies

Posted on May 9, 2016 at 10:00am 1 Comment

It’s no secret (or, at least it shouldn’t be) that white people and men are overrepresented in just about every faction of life. After another year of #OscarsSoWhite, a website called CNTRST is calculating the total percentage of ‘whiteness’ in mainstream films.

It’s worth noting that whites make up just 63 percent of the…
