How many Black men pretend that they are okay when they are not okay? How many Black men are trying to smile through the pain? How many Black men spend years swallowing down sadness, pretending they are fine? If we are going to construct narratives, let us build narratives that tell Black men that crying isn’t weakness, that hurting is part of being human, that protecting Black women doesn’t always mean violence. Teach Black men th...

It would have been too much like right for Jane Campion to leave Black women out of her speech. Leave Black Women Alone! As the saying goes, it is not you, it is me. Throughout history up until today, you have always been who you are, and it is my fault for not believing what you showed me. What I want for Black people is liberation and justice. I cannot fight for those things while trying to pull you along. I am breaking up with y...

Why must the road to reform be paved with our bodies, bones, and blood? Why must we fight through rage before we ever get to redemption? There is no silver lining when I look at the murder of Breonna Taylor and the aftermath.

For 2022 choose your peace. Find your joy. As Black people, we must put boundaries around our joyful moments and protect them at any cost. Do not continue to allow this world to rob you of your joy. You are free to pursue a life of happiness, which doesn’t require White people’s permission. When you pursue something, you chase after it. It requires that you wake up every day and say, “Today, I will seek out joy. Today I will refuse...

Just looking at Karen, she seems harmless. She is often very unassuming and is non-threatening in appearance. While the Karen memes are sweeping across the internet and becoming a part of our lexicon, it is important to note women like Karen are dangerous women.

It’s difficult sometimes because we know the reality of being Black in America and it easy to forget about things like love and joy and laughter and peace. But we all need those things. Sometimes because the world has been so harsh it is difficult to love and allow yourself to be loved. But you deserved to be loved and loved the right way.

I challenge you for 24 hours to Be Like Bob. If you catch yourself apologizing for nothing whatsoever, ask yourself, “What would Bob do?” If you want to call your statement stupid before you say it, ask yourself, “What would Bob say?” When someone attempts to steal your idea in a meeting, think, “What would Bob do?”

Be Like Bob! Or better yet, be like you in all your magnificence!

Just because we are minorities does not mean that we view our struggles the same. Many Persons of Color are anti-Black. Many minorities will side with a White person if it means they can be near the proximity of Whiteness. I am not a POC. I am Black.

We cannot nurse you through racial discord. We cannot hold your hand through fighting racism because both our hands are too busy fighting to save our lives and family’s lives. Throughout history, we have left breadcrumbs of our resistance. We have written the playbook on how to fight for liberation.

My challenge for Black people and People of Color, particularly Black women and Women of Color, is to hold your space. I challenge you for the next 24-48 hours to be aware of your body in spaces and do not move for a White person or make any apologies for physically occupying any space. You are here! And you belong here!

If they are working overtime to hide REAL HISTORY ask yourself why? When people work so hard to hide something ask yourself what are they trying to hide? It is time for White people to learn White History.

Why are Black women always called in to "fix it?" Black women are not the clean up women. Black women are not required to fix it.

Oh, my. I’m sorry. Here, there will be NO cookies. NO ONE is handing out cookies for you doing the RIGHT THING. It is almost like me handing a chocolate chip cookie to the sun and saying thank you for shining.

I am not today, tomorrow or EVER going to hand out cookies because White people see the humanity of Black people. I am not baking cookies because you have seen the light and understand Black people are oppressed in America. I ...

I am challenging Black women to reclaim you. Reclaim yourself. Find your peace and your center. Reclaim the true meaning of self-care before the world took it and commercialized it. As Audre Lorde said, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence; it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” Your joy is an act of defiance because this world never intended for Black women to have joy. Please know that you are und...

I find it funny yet typical that White people want to legislate their way out of discomfort. Since they cannot control the undeniable truth, they will attempt to control how it makes them feel.

When laws like the Individual Freedom bill and others we have seen around the country are written, they are never about Black people. The White is simply silent. White people create these laws for White people. But you cannot legislate your ...

Before you rush to Google on Monday to search for a quote that you can post by Dr. King, I would ask that you look at the totality of his life and message and hold it up to the way you live your life. Do not merely quote words that make you feel good and do not challenge your thinking and actions. Do not tweet quotes that are nothing more than a Twitter performance when in actuality you have done nothing to support the causes that ...
