Donald Trump's Tweets About Black People, By the Numbers Donald Trump's Tweets About Black People, By the Numbers

When Donald Trump recently took time out from his busy presidential schedule of golfing, telling lies and lounging in bed at Mar-a-Lago next to a bucket of extra-crispy KFC under the picture of a shirtless Vladimir Putin scotch-taped to the wall as he listened to Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson audition for the…

Michael Bae Jordan Attempts to Use Milk Analogy to Explain His Love For Black Women Michael Bae Jordan Attempts to Use Milk Analogy to Explain His Love For Black Women

Why You Should Never Address Non-MFing Factors Why You Should Never Address Non-MFing Factors

One of my favorite disses of all time is “non-motherfucking factor.” It’s just so rude. The ancient Mayans attribute the black popularization of the saying to Evelyn Lozada in all of her Basketball Wives glory. She uttered the statement to Tami Roman during what I can only imagine was one of the many riveting…

How to Get Away With Harassment on Twitter How to Get Away With Harassment on Twitter

I’ve utilized social media for over 25 years, way before it was referred to as “social media.” From AOL chatrooms to IRC (internet relay chat), I’ve seen the internet evolve over a quarter of a century. But much hasn’t changed in terms of its being a fount of knowledge, as well as a cesspool of harassment and…

Breaking Up With Social Media Is an Act of Self-Care Breaking Up With Social Media Is an Act of Self-Care

I deactivated my Twitter and Facebook three months ago. I told myself it was because I needed to concentrate on writing, and social media provided too many opportunities to distract and distance myself from the work. I’m compulsive and obsessive by nature, so once I’m into something, it takes a lot of work not to…

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and with it, a flurry of marriage proposals will flood your social media timelines. Be ready.

10 New Year’s Resolutions Everybody Sucks at Keeping That Have Nothing to Do With Losing Weight 10 New Year’s Resolutions Everybody Sucks at Keeping That Have Nothing to Do With Losing Weight

New Year’s resolutions are fun. They’re also notoriously hard to sustain, and ultimately we only come up with them because other people do and we hate it when we’re at dinner and going around the table and we don’t have shit to say. So here are things many of us say that we know aren’t real but we believe they are at…

Draya Is Being Dragged for Being a Bad Mother ... and I Hate It Draya Is Being Dragged for Being a Bad Mother ... and I Hate It

Black women are hauled over the white-hot coals of racism and sexism on the regular, in real life and especially online, where the trolls spew their anonymous venom. We’re called everything from ugly to “cum dumpsters.” White men call us far worse. Even the president of the United States has gotten in on it. And when…
