Four Reasons Why Melanin Illustrated Is The Blackest And Best Thing That Ever Happened This Week

(Photo from @Jacqhay)  1. Because I keep trying to find ways to articulate the myriad shades of beautiful and banging-ass brown found in this photo shoot — done in Costa Rica by 28 members of the Florida A&M chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, where they celebrated the 10 year anniversary of them crossing in 2007 — and I keep coming back to food. Candy bars, oatmeal, and chocolate cake, specifically. And since I love food, and since God is love, this very obviously must mean that Black women are God. ...

The Difference Between Bougie, Boujee, and Bourgie/Bourgeois, Explained

Really? You’re going to devote an entire explainer to a pedantic semantic distinction only like 27 people care about? Yes. I am going to do exactly that. Why? Because it’s fun! Like, you know how you might see a flyer advertising a concert Jaheim is holding in a Arby’s parking lot next weekend — the first stop on his national tour comprised of concerts in Arby’s parking lots? And you’ll think to yourself “Why the hell is Jaheim 1) touring and 2) having concerts in Arby’s parking lots?” But then ...

We open this week with Ralph Angel trying to get in touch with Charley, who's ignoring his calls because she's too busy with Remy checking out an old cane mill that she wants to fix up. Remy asks her how she would be able to afford the $9 million property, and she tells him that she's trying to get the owner of the New Orleans stingers to invest. But Remy finally decides it's been enough business between them, and offers to continue their conversation later — over di...

Trying Times Call For Solidarity In Our Struggle Within The Diaspora

This morning I felt really down about the latest rash of police murders to take place. But before I could finish my thoughts I had a stream of consciousness that led me to write it out and share with you all how my brain works. I remembered an Ethiopian songbird by the name of Wayna who wrote Billie Club about the plight of us Africans in this country. I immediately turned it on my stereo. I remembered that her soprano was as clear as the oldest and youngest Clark Sisters. I remembered that Twi...
