Whiteness, Trans-Racial & Wrong Skinned

 There are so many layers to this conversation, but I am going to address just this one.I need every white person who is getting on this Transracial, Wrong Skinned (which by the way are not real things and very disrespectful to the trans community) bandwagon to listen real close....more

In Honor of Father's Day, Hawaiian Style

Every family is unique, but regardless of the parent/child particulars, socio-economic status, or cultural perspectives, common threads tie our narratives together. In Lean On and Lead, Mothering and Work in the 21st Century Economy, a multi-media iBook of parents' stories, I had the pleasure of interviewing Lloyd Nebres....more

Baseball, Apple Pie and Race-Based Terrorism

It’s beyond perplexing and infuriating how the Republicans, from Nikki Haley to Rick Santorum, are blaming religious intolerance for the senseless, premeditated, White Supremacy inspired massacre of 9 African Americans holding Bible study at the historic Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston on the eve of Juneteenth. Equally disheartening is how the Democrats from POTUS to Hilary Clinton blame gun control and mental illness. (POTUS came close but still danced around the real issue on the table.)...more

America Is Playing Russian Roulette With Black Lives

I have been carrying a lot of anger lately. My anger has been building up because there has not been any time for me to recover. These past few weeks, months, years, decades – centuries – have been spiritually exhausting and mentally taxing. But I have to give it to my people, for us to be so resilient and calm in the midst of our holocaust and attack of our characters is amazing to me. We should be ordained as saints for being such a shining example of patience and class in the face of this beastly society....more

I Blamed My White Husband For The Charleston Shooting

Like most of us, Wednesday night's tragedy in Charleston, SC has me beyond upset. I'm sure there have been and will be innumerable articles and posts written about how this shooting impacts us as black people and as society, so I won't add to the list. But I can write about how it has impacted me. ...more

In Praise of Tywanza Sanders

The name of monster who murdered nine people because they were black has been shown repeatedly around the internet. It should be. He should be looked at as a terrorist and reviled as one. However, I would like it if a different name sprang to mind in connection with the Charleston Massacre, because heroism and decency should be honored. That name is Tywanza Sanders....more

Your Stolen Data around the World in 2 Weeks

Ever wonder just what happens to the data in a data breach incident? Does it go into some kind of wormhole in cyberspace, out through the other end? Well, the answer is pretty much so, when you consider that hacked data makes its rounds on a global scale, taking only 14 days to land in 22 countries spanning five continents—according to an experiment by Bitglass....more
