Remembering Toussaint: The First Step Toward Liberation

Remembering Toussaint: The First Step Toward Liberation

Sometimes, it is hard to have hope.  I scroll through my newsfeed with anxiety, knowing that 9 times out of 10 I will see another horrific act committed against people who look like me. And 9 times out of ten, the perpetrators of these acts will get off. Who can we turn to when this happens? Not the police. Not lawyers. Not the U.S constitution.

For me, I sought comfort in C.L.R. James’ Black…

The real world.

This is from That’s So Raven, where Chelsea and Raven apply to work at the same clothing shop. Chelsea is white; Raven is black. Chelsea gets the job, despite being utterly horrible at it, while Raven, who has a deep interest in fashion and knows how to handle clothes, does not. The girls find this deeply suspicious, so Chelsea wears a hat with a camera on it and questions the employer. The employer admits what she does in the gif above and Chelsea and Raven submit the footage to a news station.

And THAT is why That’s So Raven is the best TV show ever.

That’s not even the only reason why it was the best show ever

R.I.P Karyn Washington, Founder of For Brown Girls

On April 8, 2014, the world lost a sister, a friend, an advocate for all Black women, Karyn Washington founder of For Brown Girls and #DarkSkinRedLip Project. It is a blow to the spirit to hear this kind of news. Karyn, 22 years old, reportedly committed suicide, reports Madame Noire and The Root.

This comes as a shock and is a devastating loss for the Black community. Karyn’s efforts to…

The side of Michael Jackson they don’t show you: his ACTUAL RACE.

On 6th February 1984, after winning an unprecedented number of AMA awards Michael spoke to black publication JET magazine about people in his life he was thankful for; Stevie Wonder, who expresses pride of race in his music.

“That’s why I love Stevie Wonder’s album called Songs in The Key of Life… He had a song called Black Man and I just jumped up screaming when I heard that record because he’s showing the world what the Black man has done and what other races have done… He named it Black Man and all these people who have got the album sing it. And that’s the best way to bring about the truth.”

Fun fact: I wrote a paper on Michael Jackson last year. A lot of people don’t know that his DNA was actually traced all the way back to Ghana where we is part of a royal dynasty.

Yes, because of that he was crowned Prince Mikaeel Amalaman Anoh II Of the Ivory Coast Kingdom Krinjabo & Agni Empire (that’s his full royal name).

I’m guilty of believing the anti-blackness hype propagated by Michael. We need to make sure this part of his legacy gets passed on.

Anonymous asked: I volunteer in a second grade classroom, and one of the little white girls asked a little black girl if she dreamed of being white. The little black girl looked at her and said "No, because I only dream of my life being better, not worse."

All Eyes on Beyonce’ Thighs: Yonce Accused of Photoshopping Instagram Photo

Rarely does a day pass without some mention of Beyonce’, be it speculation or fact. Usually, I don’t write about the Queen Bey because she and I have somewhat of a complicated relationship, but today I am joining the debate about a recent photo added to her Instagram account that may or may not be photoshopped.

In the pictures in question Beyonce’ is on a golf course wearing her typical vacation…
