Science is not a subject that is often pushed in the African American community except during black history month when the same scientists of the 20th century and earlier are trotted out again and again to the point that they have lost their meaning other than as place holders. With exception of Neil deGrasse Tyson, most African Americans would be hard pressed…
Although the rate of black on black homicide dropped from the rates of crack-fueled 90's, according to FBI statistics murder of black males under 20 is still the number the number one cause of death, nor is it any surprise that the majority of those numbers are…
the welfare and food stamps the rich dole out to these sows and studs serves as the paddock’s lock and the lure to lead them up the ramp
so the ones with promise
can be separated from the duds
each season they trim their herd this one has a beauty worth cultivating this one is tall and quick enough
to play pro ball
here is a voice to make them even richer
if they decide to let it be heard
a few with minds worth…
“Surely the day will come when color means nothing more than the skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one's soul; when birth places have the weight of a throw of the dice and all men are…
Theists, I appreciate your prayers for my heathen soul, but there’s no need. Really. I’m an atheist. I’m good. And Mormons, posthumous baptism is even more than one step over the line. That’s even more unneeded, creepy, and unwanted – unless you want to modify that whole…
An issue of my webcomic guest starring a certain Muslim prophet, goes online in some 24 hours. Am I nervous? Fuck yeah.
True, our readership is currently small and I don't expect anyone will even notice, but I am tense nevertheless. I'm glad we stuck to our guns and didn't fall into the trap of fear-induced self-censorship that so many others do. Still, if anyone ever says that Islam is a religion of peace, call bullshit on them. I never lost a minute of sleep over an issue…
After going through a dramatic break-up, a cousin of mine got in touch with me, and dropped some, much to my surprise, encouraging words of wisdom. The next day, this cousin sent me one of those texts that requires you to message 10 or so other people. It was something like "Deny your Heavenly Father Which is in Heaven, and He too will Deny You...Send this message to blah blah blah." I'm thinking how wise this cousin is, and how I'd probably stay in contact with her from now on because she…
Understanding the difference between apples and oranges is difficult when your tastebuds are partial to watermelon and red soda water especially when trying to spin a story as tragic, but predictable as the Arizona massacre that severely wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed six others.
It was about 12:30 p.m. when I walked into the lunchroom and as usual the television was tuned to FOX News, which for the people I work with is par for the NRA, Right Wing, ultra-religious folk… Continue
I grew up in Spartanburg, South Carolina. It's no teeming metropolis, mostly suburban but it's far from a rural community.My schools were always at least 50% African-American (in junior high it was 90%). I must say that I think I was lucky. I was an intelligent white boy in the poverty-stricken inner city...well as much as you can call Spartanburg a city, that is. I never in 12 years saw 2 people fight or not get along because of their race. Asian, whites, blacks, latinos-all had their friends… Continue
Thank you to the fan in Germany - who has chosen to have their name withheld - for using my pictures and creating this wonderful masterpiece. BRILLIANT!!
By the way, that verse WAS done intentional; I did not mess up and there was no edting error. That verse goes: ...."wake up and enjoy my life each and every single day; said I'm gonna wake up and enjoy my life every and each single day...(that's my own Humanology...)". I "flipped" the words, just because it sounded… Continue
AN: I wrote an advertisement for the religious plea in the voice of a lawyer or something. My cynicism glad was about to burst, so I had to write this. Of course, it can also be read and commented upon at Good reason News.
Have you committed a crime, but now the courts want to punish you? How dare they!? Maybe it's time… Continue
I was reading through news and I came across an article about black coats in gray wolves and how they are becoming more prevalent in North America . Through studies they found that the darker coat doesn't improve camouflage as a predator or as prey. But further prodding revealed that the protein that causes the black coat is the same that helps prevent inflammation and infection in humans. I'll allow you to put 2 and 2 together but this is lovely evidence for evolution, speciation, and natural… Continue

Speaking of doomsday, did you know we’re living in the end times? Yeah, I know, we’ve been living in the end times during the fall of Rome, the Dark Ages, Black Death and an invasion into Spain by Muslims as well as both world wars and the Cold War. But all the disasters, wars and epidemics are nothing compared to now. The end is almost here as it’s written in the Book of Revelations. Unlike the Mayan prophecy of 2012, the belief that we are the last generation on Earth isn’t just embraced by… Continue
