Kill A Black Kid. Become A Folk Hero.

I wish the destardly George Zimmerman was somewhere in an Ocala prison practicing soap-holding. But alas, the state of Florida's horrible prosecutors ensured this man would spend the rest of his life tormenting us, which lead to perhaps...Show More Summary

The NFL Wants To Ban The N-Word?!? Ngga Please.

No need to rehash my feelings on the word nigger here. If you've read the blog long enough, you already know my stance. If not, get familiar. For those of you too lazy to do the homework, I find the word ignorant, try (and on occasions fail) to not use it, and think white people shouldn't say it under any circumstances. Show More Summary

Why I Both Love, And Hate Allen Iverson.

Surefire first ballot Hall Of Famer Allen Iverson had his jersey retired by the Sixers last night, an event which overshadowed some record setting by my Wizards as they rolled on the home team. Iverson was in rare form as he gave an impassioned speech thanking the team's fans for years of support. Show More Summary

What's Up With This Commercial?

Okay, I've seen this commercial a million times now and I still don't fully comprehend what's going on. The woman appears to be leaving a (her?) suburban home sometime late at night, dressed to the nines. She then inexplicably drives into downtown Los Angeles, which everyone knows is full of nothing but bums at 2am. Show More Summary

Why "Urban" Radio Sucks.

About 12-13 years ago, I abandoned black radio for good. By "black radio", I mean the terrestrial "Hot/Kiss/Power/Where Hip-Hop & R&B Live!" format that permenates the airwaves in every major US city. I still occasionally listen to "Adult...Show More Summary

AB.com Newsbriefs 2.24.14

It's been a long time. I already know. But hey, mortgages and Montessori school tuition don't pay themselves, and this blog's meager ad revenue doesn't pay for either. Ya'll know the drill. Anyways, I'm back (for now), so here's theShow More Summary

No. Michael Sam Is Not Rosa Parks.

It's Black History Month, which is a nice way of saying it's time when those of us with kids have to do help them with school projects. My 5 year old had the task of creating a presentation on Rosa Parks, which means we've spent quite a bit of time learning about the civil rights pioneer. Show More Summary

What We Can All Learn From The Jordan Davis Case.

I'll admit, I haven't been following the case of slain Florida teenager Jordan Davis for a lot of reasons, the largest of which is that I've always felt the facts in this case were so clearly incriminating that there's no way Michael Dunn could possibly walk. Show More Summary

Richard Sherman's Vindication.

If you've been around this blog long enough, you're fully aware that I'm not really a football fan. My sporting fandom extends to exactly one sport, and exactly two teams. The rest of the sporting world is little more than a useful diversion while I wait for my Tarheels and Wizards to tip off their seasons again. Show More Summary

You'll watch it. You'll have opinions. You should leave them here.Question: What did you think of the POTUS SOTU speech? Did you know State Of The Union was a pretty awesome underground hip-hop club on U Street (DC) in the mid 90's?

Columbia Mall Shooting: The Black Guy Did It.

This story is still unfolding, and it only gets eerier by the moment. This happened at a mall my family frequents, in a town just to the north of mine, and the deceased suspect grew up not far from my neighborhood. None of this adds up, it's all strange, it's all scary, and it's all going to happen again. Show More Summary

Ashy Or Classy?!? Richard Sherman's Postgame Interview.

The Devil Baby Attack Prank.

I watch a lot of horror movies, usually within the comfy confines of my own home. So I probably won't be seeing "Devil's Due" anytime soon, but I gotta admit, this is a darn clever way to virally market your movie. Of course, 99% ofShow More Summary
