    Even though the laws have changed my

    grandmother still takes us to the back of the bus when we go downtown in the rain. "It's easier", my grandmother says, "than having white folks look at me like I'm dirt". But we aren't dirt. We are people paying the same fare as other people. When I say this to my grandmother...

    The last thing Black History Month is about,

    is fighting over race. Historian Carter Woodson picked February because both the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass are in February. So what it really is about, is a celebration of Freedom, Unity, and Love. In this generation, I see it as a lesson of acceptance...

    This is a rant about the Ferguson situation.

    There are people who joke with race

    and that is OK with me because I think when people say race jokes aren't allowed it proliferates a racist society. To say we're OK with race jokes to me means that we need to be able to joke with it. Then there are people who joke and understand what they are saying. Its a...

    Racism is a term usually only used by critics.

    Official definitions of racism often state that the term should only be applied on the belief that some races are superior and on negative actions due to this. In practice it is often applied as a form of ad hominem on anyone believing in the existence of races or even on...
