Or nah?  For those of us that never fell for the okey-doke and cringe every time those two words are uttered together like peanut butter & jelly, you will breathe a breath of fresh air to know that an attorney in North Carolina has called bullshit on the facade that is called diversity and inclusion at her workplace.

Integration of the races and placating tactics like affirmative action, diversity & inclusion, and body cameras for police officers have led Black America to become complacent or turn a blind eye to the disparities that the civil rights movement vowed to eradicate.   The racial wealth gap is persistently widening, police brutality and racial animus is on the rise, and schools are becoming increasingly segregated to the detriment of our Black students. These disparities in economics, education, ...

Luxury brands are associated with a high price and superior quality.  Brands like Gucci, Porshe, and Rolex come to mind when someone mentions luxury brands. Because of their high price tags, consumers often align with luxury brands as a pronouncement of their financial success or social strata.  A brand is termed luxury when it is desirable more than necessary.  Luxury brands offer exclusivity, superior craftsmanship, sophistication, and innovation with careful attention paid to details in desig...

Enslaved by a color that condemns human life to accept unpaid labor, racial slurs and, aggression as the only reality of the Black life in America, the pressure is building to break free, breathe easy and be whole.

Mobility inched upwards at snail’s pace and it has always been a tight bargain for life, dignity, and a righteous share of prosperity. The world makes progress...

In Get Out, White supremacy is the obvious villain in the film, and it is clear that Jordan Peele wanted his audience to sympathize with the Black characters and their struggles. Not only was the Black protagonist’s life preserved throughout the entire movie, but the hero who saved his life was another Black characte...

Horror movies scare the hell out of me, and I usually can't sleep after. However, I have never explored horror like this, through the lens of the Black experience. I think so far, the most reality checking part has been the way that you really could just write a story or make a movie about being Black in, insert time period, ...

After attending only a couple of lectures in this class, I am already hooked. The title of the course itself was the first to catch my eye and I can’t wait to delve deeper into the Black Horror genre of film. However, there are a few pressing questions that I have going into the class.  Prior to this class, the Black horror films/TV series that I have watched are Sorry to Bother You, Get Out, Us, and Lovecraft Country. My first question is, what is up with Black Horror movies historically makin...

A car full of white men roll the window down and yell "Nigger!" and sped away before I could even process what had just happened. I walk int...
