Revolution is synonymous for change. Who said you needed to be a certain complexion, size, or even have the same preferences as the person to your left or right? Exactly, no one!

The other week I discussed some unhealthy thought processes that single females (who want relationships) sometimes possess without realizing. This week I…Continue
Unfortunately, the world of Black comics have yet to get as much attention as many mainstream animation today. While on my quest for comics by Afro-American illustrators, I came across Ron Ackins.
