"I use to like Zoe Saldana and thought she has great acting skills. But now, she will be playing Nina's life on screen and by not knowing Nina Simone's true world tells me she is ignorant about Nina Simone and didn't research her…"

"..and they wonder why the N.W.A and parts of the black community are saying F**k the Police, smh. It's more than just a statement, it has its roots as to why it's said."

OP-ED: Hood Rich - Does Gentrification prove people need to invest in their 'ghetto

I needed to understand why people use the term hood rich, furthermore I wanted to explore when people who declare themselves of this status often suddenly disengage from the same communities that helped to culminate this status.

FEATURE: No criminal charges for McKinney, Tx. cop in pool party incident

Posted on June 24, 2016 at 11:00am 3 Comments

The McKinney, Texas police officer who attacked a teenage girl attending a community pool party last year won’t face charges for disproportionately violent handling of the situation and the young woman. The decision not to indict former Cpl. Eric Casebolt was made by a Collin County grand jury that, apparently, was totally okay with a trained officer and grown man body slamming a law abiding, but black, teenager for essentially no reason. Business as usual.…

Oh, Zoe. Why can’t you just let us forget that time you disgraced Nina Simone’s legacy? Because, apparently, talking nonsense and sacrilege is more her speed. Once again opening up about her, eh, controversial casting as Nina Simone in the July issue of…

FEATURE: Black Lives Matter organizer sentenced to 90 days jail time for crime formerly known as "felony lynching“

Posted on June 9, 2016 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

In a disturbingly transparent attempt to intimidate the movement and make an example out of black resistance, activist Jasmine “Abdullah” Richards, 28, was recently sentenced for a crime formerly known as "felony lynching" after attempting to rescue another protestor from police custody last August. Since joining the Black Lives Matter movement in 2014, and participating in local actions in the Pasadena area, Richards was known by police and officials for her presence and…
