When I woke up today, I woke up to Dylann Roof was safely taken into custody after shooting up the historic Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. He was arrested in North Carolina about 245 miles from the scene after someone called saying they noticed the car in pictures that police blasted to the public asking for help to catch this man. It’s really sad that we, black people, can’t catch a break. We have all odds against us. We can’t go swimming or go to church without being killed or harassed. To be completely honest, we are living…View Post

So I was able to experience the Texas Black Expo this past weekend for the first time! The expo is one of Texas’ largest African-American trade show that happens every year.

As the steam from the hot cup of tea has started to cool off, I really started to think about the bigger picture in the coming out of Caitlyn Jenner. There’s way more to this situation than Bruce Jenner becoming a transgender. Of course at first I was wondering how could someone at the age of 65 all of a sudden decide…NOW is the time that I want to change my sex and become a completely different person.
