There’s No Such Thing as “Not Black Enough”

In such a racially polarized environment, you’d think that people of the same color are more likely to stick together as a people. It’s obvious to recognize that this just isn’t true. In America, and other parts of the world, Black people take part in a society that doesn’t want much to do with them. We’ve faced centuries of discrimination and decades of segregation. We’ve been subject to all types of tortures and hardships. We’ve

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Her Avante-Garde Political Transparency

“I am the people I work for,” tweeted Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, garnering over 16,000 retweets and more than 109,000 likes. My dad died when I was 18, my mom scrubbed toilets + drove drove schoolbuses, I bartended to help her, and still won a Congressional primary at 28. I’ll take my family over a fat bank account any day, and my experience makes me a better legislator. I am the people I work for. https://t.co/NMWGeUIwNS

The Damage a White-Centric Education Has on Young People of Color

With it being Black History Month in the UK, it’s that time of year when schools pretend to care about black history for a week before returning to their ethnocentric education. It’s that ironic month where pupils sit in school assemblies where they watch videos about how a lack of representation in school subjects can affect pupils of color before going to their history lessons where they’ll learn about the Tudor period for the fifth time in their

Why Every School Should Offer African American History Classes

Traditional history classes focus on what is considered the most significant American history- unfortunately, most “significant history” revolves around exclusively white figures. African American historical figures and issues are really only discussed during lessons on slavery and the civil rights movement, causing in-depth discussions about Black history to be a novelty.  This creates a very one- dimensional education. Without knowledge of cultures and history outside of white America, young people are growing up not only

There’s A Crisis In Black Education That We Need To Talk About

Contrary to popular belief, getting an education is not just about books and grades- students are also learning how to respectfully and actively take part in the life of this nation. Without the freedoms offered to us through the U.S. Constitution, many students would not be able to take part in this process of free and equal education, most especially black students. As we look across the country, the ability for black students to obtain

Muslims Are Being Forced Into Concentration Camps in China

From the spring of last year, the authorities of China in Uyghur and Kazakh have amassed what could conceivably be a million Muslims, including even some foreign civilians, in massive detainment and “re-education” concentration camps, where they are to be seized and “constructed” into prototypical Chinese citizens. The detention campaign is known to be a trademark of China’s government safekeeping gear, bolstered by the greatly xenophobic, hard-hitting regulation of President Xi Jinping. Hailed from a partway
