“You sir, are a bytch-ass nukka” by A BlackMan’s View
I have a problem with dudes…men. BOYS that don’t support their kids and disrespect the mother(s) of their kids. Especially dudes…men…BOYS that cry that bullshit about not having a father in their own lives. It seems to me if you had a bitch for a daddy, then you would do every thing you had to do to not be a bitch yourself. But that is just me.
“White History Month” by Abagond
White History Month, unlike Black History Month, is the month that never ends. From Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death” to “manifest destiny” to America as “the great melting pot”, American history is not merely taught from a white point of view, it is taught as if blacks, Mexicans and Native Americans do not truly count as people.
“Contemplating ’The BW/WW War” by Ankhesen Mié
“I personally have been around Black women my whole life and I know many Black women have been seeing Black men with white women their whole lives…it’s nothing new to see that coupling and therefore I find it hard to believe that the majority of Black women are out there giving “angry looks” and making “snide remarks.” I personally think that this is a stereotype that is over-played by certain people and put solely on Black women, just one more inequality to add to our list. I also think some people tend to get off and get turned on by imagining that all Black women are after them because they took a so-called “good brotha,” or because they ARE a so-called “good brotha,” with a white woman. (lol)
This episode of American Masters documents Bill as he’s in the process of creating the dance piece. As a backdrop, Bill is trying to reconcile his five year old self who was taught to love “Father Abraham” unconditionally, to his fifty-six year old self who no longer believed in heroes. Often, Bill struggles with what exactly he wants the piece to convey about the President. Then as ideas come, his artistic mind has trouble expressing them to his young dancers in a concrete way they can understand. They are of a new generation who are not affected by Abe Lincoln in a sentimental way.

“Pete Hoekstra’s Racist Campaign Ad Outtakes [SPOOF]” by Disgrasian

“The Boxers Uprising: How Roland S. Martin And CNN Both Got It Wrong” by Racialicious
The only surprise was how long it took CNN to suspend contributor Roland S. Martin after the uproar he instigated during the Super Bowl this past Sunday. What’s not surprising is who hasn’t gotten the same punishment for similar offenses.
