Its justified to be angered that we don’t always control the headline or narrative but the take away that I glean from the Chi-Raq trailer is we always have the means to control our destiny especially if we approach the issue strategically.

My Heart Breaks for Asma Mohamed Jama

My Heart Breaks for Asma Mohamed Jama

I never intended 9 – Until? to be a platform for me to rant about injustice not directly related to the core of the niche I strive to serve. Still the fact is I have a position and an outlet to express it when it comes to matters that hit home such as the despicable abuse that Kenyan national Asma Mohamed Jama suffered at a Coon’s Rapids, Minneapolis Applebee’s.

Racist Costumes’ Gold Medal Award

Racist Costumes’ Gold Medal Award

Meanwhile, those who get busted in Minstrelsy Blackface, IDF Uniforms, Prosthetic Semitic Noses, or Sacred Ethnic Regalia most common defense is an incredulous chorus of “What?! Some of my best friends are… “.
Intelligent people don’t give a damn how many yellow, red, brown, olive or black friends you have, your bullshit is unacceptable and must stop or be stopped.

Amandla Sternberg, The Badass Superhero Earthy Girl 

Amandla Sternberg, The Badass Superhero Earthy Girl 

“Yo, this little girl is Cold As F—!” was my first impression upon seeing Amandla Sternberg’s big screen debut playing the younger Cataleya to lead actress Zoe Saldana’s character in Columbiana.

And more recently she has gone on to prove that it was not just an act.
