We all have our favorite celebrities. Some we like more than others. But let’s be honest, social media has really changed the way we look at some of our faves. Social media has allowed us to really get inside famous people’s heads…and sometimes, to be quite frank, I wish we didn’t have this kind of access.
Yes. This young lady is preaching that good word!
If you only respect a woman when she's "modest", you don't actually respect women. That's not how this works.

I like the internet. Nothing keeps me entertained like the interwebs on any given day. From hot topics, to celebrity gossip, and just downright foolery, you are guaranteed to get whatever it is that you’re looking for on the internet daily. But one thing I’ve noticed about social media is that it can get reeeallly superficial. And essentially, I’d be willing to bet that it’s kinda ruining our psyche.
If you aren’t familiar with “Black Twitter”, you’re missing out. There’s really nowhere else on the Internet where you can find such a dynamic group of young (and not so young) Black folk, sharing thoughts on everything from police brutality and politics to what it means to “grow up Black.” So it was really no surprise when we attracted the (unwanted) attention of the LA Times. Recently, Managing Editor S. Mitra Kalita hired a Black writer by the name of Dexter Thomas to “cover” the “Black Twitter beat.” And the result was as disastrous as we (Black Twitter) had expected.
