Lovecraft Country – Strange Case (S1E5)

Mind = Blown. That is all. That is this week’s review. Just kidding. And for the record, The BlackWithNoChaser Facebook Page is bomb. We have some smart folks who are really figuring things out before they are actually revealed! If you’re not a member, you might want to like the page. Leggo! Whitewashed Ruby, Ruby, Ruby! First of all, can you imagine waking up de-melanated? I know that’s not a word, but y’all! Ruby is initially frightened by the transformation and later horrified at the process of returning to herself,…

The Unassisted Supremacy: Disney is the Queen of Pop

The headline says it all and I’m not taking it back. If you’ve ever logged into Twitter Dot Com, you already know that we spend a lot of our time reminiscing about our childhoods. I’m 21, born in 1998, and I don’t know what category age group I fall into, but I do know everyone who I grew up with share this same opinion.

When the news broke that another non black woman, Jessica Krug, was impersonating a black woman to increase her affirmative action credit score, I laughed. As a black man, I found it funny. Like, here is another white woman attempting to sneak her way into black spaces by literally attempting to replicate black faces. The horror. The hilarious. The audacity. The D’wight womaning. And when I laughed, I laughed like a rich white man would laugh at a poor white man, asking for change on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. “You’re…

Celebrating Black August 2020

If you’re new to Black August, get ready for a quick history lesson. While February is the renowned month to celebrate BLACKNESS, the month of August holds so much power and “it goes to show that we stand on the shoulders of giants,” eloquently quoted by Monifa Bandele, one of the founders of the annual concert Black August. This concert is a celebration of Hip-Hop and our Freedom Fighters pushing the adamant message of freeing all the Political Prisoners and abolishing prisons. This year the concert has transitioned into a…
