In the year 2017, Donald Trump, (who will be referred to as Tangerine Toddler from this point on) became our President. And while those of us who were sane mourned the fact that he’d be our “leader” for the next four years, others of us were having meet and greets and taking pictures with him like he was our play cousin. To take it a step further, some of us even agreed to perform at his inaugaration. *enters Chrisette Michelle*
Hillary Clinton will stop at nothing to get the Black vote. Like most politicians, she realizes that the our vote is extremely important, and without it, she probably doesn’t stand a chance at becoming this country’s next President. What Hillary also knows is that while she pretty much has the older Black vote in the bag, that younger Black voters aren’t so easily swayed. Many Black millennials believe that Hillary lacks credibility, integrity, and authenticity, and for us, that makes her unfit to be President. Fed up with the status quo, we’re looking for someone…different. And even though we knew Hillary would say and do pretty much anything to lock in our votes, none of us were prepared for her recent interview with “The Breakfast Club.”
Well, well, well. I’ve never been more aware of the rape culture we live in than now in this very moment. I mean, I knew it existed. I’ve been a victim of it myself. But I think the fact that I’m using social media way more than I ever have before is allowing me to really see how other people view women, sexuality, their rights, and more importantly, their rights to their own bodies. Yesterday, a video surfaced of singer August Alsina fondling a fan onstage. The responses have been mixed. Take a look.
