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

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 for a fleeting…See More

How to Fake that You Watched Scandal

New PSA from the Dear White People team: "How to fake that you watched Scandal". "Are you Black? But not "Black" Black? Well let this How-To video show you how you can fake your friends into thinking you watched any (and every) episode of 'Scandal'."

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

Posted on September 15, 2014 at 8:09am 0 Comments

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…

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…
