So, President Obama Cannot Call A Black Woman “Best Looking”?

Spot Check: Controlling That Narrative About Beauty I’m not the biggest fan of the man, based on his performance in office, but the shrieking and howling by the media is hilarious. All I notice is that the biggest complainers of the President calling Kamala Harris, “The best-looking Attorney General in the country,” were white women […]

Stop those trite, irritating, and annoying expressions of “Well, it is like doing X against the blacks,” or “Well, it is like using the N-word to describe group Y,” or the all time favorite, “Group Z going through this discrimination is like doing this to the blacks.” For real though, those […]

Change We Can Believe In: Sammy Sosa Turns White

No comment on this one. Okay … I’ll just say this: no surprise. The black guys (in the entertainment industry) wish they could be this bold.

Please note: I wrote this to express my irritation with feminists, sci-fi fans, trekkies / trekkers who pretend to be pro-woman. Let’s be frank, for some of them it’s all white women, all the time.
