Black America’s Fight to Normalize Reparations

Normalizing reparations was a foreign concept to me. Admittedly, just to talk about the IDEA of reparations seemed like a waste of precious brain energy, brain energy I could use contemplating what if Michael Scott from The Office were black (mf would’ve BEEN fired) or why are toddlers so enamored with watching other toddlers play with toys on YouTube. African American reparations seemed about as likely as Clarence Thomas marrying a black woman, so it was never normalized in mind.  National African American centric policies have always been put on…

When It’s Bigger Than Music

Celebrities have always held a certain, even special place in society. With the ease of access and the multiple social media platforms available, the celebrity culture is the biggest it has ever been.

After more than 20 years in business, he is forced to shutter his doors forever. And it was by his own hand. In response to Nike’s now infamous ad campaign starring former San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Martin decided to sell all Nike gear at 50 percent off as well as discontinuing carrying the brand.
