The Entitlement and Privilege Just Leaps Out, Huh?

On social media, there were a lot of Black people and people of color who wondered whether Biden/Kamala winning the presidential election would shift white people’s focus away from marginalized communities. Unsurprisingly, but still annoyingly, that shift has already commenced. It was marginalized communities of Black people—especially Black women, Latinx…


Allyship Till It’s Your Friend—Then It’s “Bigger Issues”

2020 is the premiere year for exposing all the problematic MAGA hat-wearing, “a little Republican” lying, “play a tree” foolishness of celebrities. I’m truly interested in seeing a compiled list of all the people who showed their true colors in 2020, because that list is long and diverse.

But this…


Bought By White Supremacists So What Does That Make Her?

If there’s one thing white women know how to do, it’s play victim. Granted, that method is a staple of white people overall. From reverse racism (newsflash for the clueless—no such thing) to white genocide paranoia, it seems white people are wired to fall into the role of victim when…


Would Be As Harmful

People debate various solutions to solve the problems of inequality and inequity. Among those possible solutions is the one where all ailments would be solved if people other than white were wealthy and held the reigns of financial power. But it depends on how and where we see the issue…


“Get Her Away From Me” Karen Edition

The video that went viral on social media shows a Karen—Abigail Elphick’s white tantrum alter—having what some have called a mental breakdown. There is humor but also fear because Abigail shows how far white women will go to get their way. Like the video on TikTok showing white girls crying…

It may be popular to say controversial things to stay relevant or get more interest in a film, or about-to-be-released album. But then there is the clueless, vapid, white response that shows they either lead a bubbled life or they don’t care about harm. …


That Hasn’t Done The Work

This could easily apply to any non-trumper as well. Sure, there will be those outside of white people that say these same things, but the vast majority will be white people. Because white people love a catchy phrase, a dance they can copy, a culture they can appropriate, and so…


Endorsement From A Few Don’t Make It Right Sweetie

Every where we look, there’s a white person, often liberal, who is using the styles, sounds and slang from other cultures and excusing under the guise of “love”. They just want to show their love. Appropriation is about taking from other cultures and ignores the people upset in that community…


We Don’t Need Them and We Never Did

Yes, they can be entertaining. Yes, a well-written story can give us a character that has depth and grows to be a better person. But everytime they create these types of characters it seems people wanna hand out the benefit of the doubt on the street, hoping they will get…


Stop Doing Their Work For Them

If you use social media, watch the news or even engage in conversation, you will encounter someone who will be doing their part to maintain the white supremacy status quo. News flash: a person does not have to be white to perpetuate a white supremacist mindset. That’s why white supremacy…
