Reblog: Juneteenth is the Holiday Everyone Needs to Be Celebrating

I wrote this blog way back in my senior year of college, 2018, but considering today is Juneteenth and it is all over social media, why not share my words and thoughts on the matter. And by my words, I mostly mean Wikipedia's words with some adlibs thrown in, but nonetheless. Enjoy a history lesson …

This Beyonce Themed Gymnastics Floor Routine is Black History Month GOALS

I wish with every inch of my heart I had the skill level to be a gymnast. I want to go viral on Twitter for absolutely DESTROYING a floor routine to a Beyonce medley. I mean, talk about GOALS. A homecoming performance that would make @Beyonce proud! @DennisNia made us lose our breath with her …

Stop Asking Me Where I’m From Or What My Nationality Is

If I had $1 for every person that asked me what my nationality was or where I was from, I could fucking retire. Every single brown and black person understands the excruciating pain that is being asked this idiotic and racist microaggressive question. Yes, I'm calling it racist, because guess what fuckers, you aren't asking …

That Time I Cried In Memphis

Black History Month is almost over, #sad. I mean, that by no means, means we can't celebrate African American History 24/7, but I do like saying #blackhistorymonth. So these next two posts will be the last in my Category Is: Black History Month. Also sorry about the clickbait title, but like a girl's gotta do, …

Juneteenth is the Holiday Everyone Needs to Be Celebrating

HISTORY LESSON TIME!! (This is legit just me making the Wikipedia page about Juneteenth mildly entertaining, it's not long I promise) June 19th, 1865. The day every slave in America was officially freed. Now, you're probably thinking, "but wasn't the Emancipation Proclamation in 1862?" It was, but the EP didn't actually free ALL the slaves... …

Biracial Representation

I can count the number of biracial men and women I know on one hand. I have a younger sister and brother, and two cousins who also have a white mother and a black father. I grew up not seeing myself represented in the media. When people talk about representation they usually speak broadly, there …
