Trump Ignorantly Credits Himself For Being The Reason Black Unemployment Is Low

President Trump is notorious for embracing his racist views about minorities, whether it’s about discriminating black people regarding his housing developments or openly calling latino’s ‘rapists’. Famed rapper Shawn Carter, or Jay-Z, who publicly supported Barack Obama’s presidency and favored Hillary Clinton during her 2016 campaign, gave his take on Trump’s racist tendencies on CNN’s The Van Jones Show. Shawn expressed his abhorrence to Trump’s view on race and told CNN’s Van Jones: “It really is hurtful,

How Internalized Racism Harms People of Color

Around the age of six, I started to notice that certain people around me looked different than I did. During this time, my family had decided to move out of a townhome located in the loud urban metropolis of Minneapolis, to this small, quaint neighborhood in a suburb 30 minutes away. In Minneapolis, I had plenty of friends that looked like me; same hair, similar culture and they had the same brown skin and brown

How Racism is Still Very Alive on College Campuses

I think we’ve all heard the “racism is dead, so get over it” argument, so I would like to show you instances of racism in our modern America. Specifically from college-aged students. The sad part about these examples is that all of the instances I am about to show you were of people from my generation being racially insensitive. My generation. My peers. Yea, it at first it surprised me too. "I just called my

President Trump’s Unsurprising MLK Day

American presidents have a decades-long bipartisan tradition of honoring the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on the third Monday of January each year. In 1994, President Bill Clinton signed a bill to designate the federal holiday as a national day of service. Over the next few years, both as president and as a private citizen, he spent MLK Day volunteering. In 1998, he helped paint the walls at a Washington, D.C., high school and

Why Black Homosexuality is Not a Negative Attribute

No matter how much pseudo-intellectuals may try to urge it, debates based on controversial topics have never been tranquil. People, especially when arguing a point that they believe so deeply in, are not prone to be phlegmatic. Religion and politics are never encouraged to be discussed in the workplace, simply because beliefs like those are fairly unshakable, and a disagreement between two passionate people could lead to a colossal rift. Unlike the workplace, social media

Please Stop Using Buddhist Heads as Ornaments

Some people will go to extreme lengths to appear spiritual or edgy, which is fine, to a certain extent. But often this turns into cultural appropriation and can be extremely offensive to large numbers of people. Chances are, you’ve seen the head of the Buddha in ornament form at some point. In white countries, they’re everywhere. Let me explain why this is such an enormous problem. I know the majority of people aren’t trying to

Where Has the Outrage for Missing Girls of Color Gone?

Back in late 2016 and early 2017, the media was in crisis mode– no I’m not talking about Trump. I am talking about the missing girls of color. Every single celebrity was tweeting or Instagramming about it. “Find our girls”, they would post. Everyone was also talking about it. Sharing photos of the young girls who have gone missing. People were outraged that this was happening. Throughout the year, there were fewer and fewer posts

The Solution to Legalizing Marijuana Is Recognizing That There’s a Connection Between Weed and Racism

California has received praise lately for its legalization of recreational marijuana, the ninth state to do so, including the District of Columbia. While this is a step forward and makes the concept of recreational weed being legalized federally more realistic, there is an issue. And no, I’m not referring to Jeff Session’s adamant anti-weed stance that is preventing federal legalization. I’m talking about 587,700 people being arrested. Their crime? Marijuana possession. According to the Washington Post, this

The Hidden Racism Behind Birth Tourism

Birth tourism is considered as the travel to another country with the intent of giving birth in that country. The main reason for birth tourism is to obtain citizenship for the child in a country with birthright citizenship. It was reported that for a growing number of Russian women, what draws them to Miami isn’t sunny beaches, but U.S. citizenship for their newborn children. According to the article, in Moscow it is considered a status symbol to have
