Tomi Lahren: Outrage Barbie...please go away

(RawStory.com)

What would you get if you mixed Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, and Ann Coulter in a nifty Ninja blender? You'd get "Alt-Right" Princess Tomi Lahren. Like one of her ideological fathers, Bill O, Lahren was recently fired from her other daddy's Internet channel, The Blaze, but that doesn't mean she's gone quietly into that good night.
Tomi, like Ann Coulter, is a blond, (they say) attractive, white woman with a penchant for giving angry white men stiffies with her screeching about the war on White people, police officers, and, of course, all things Negro.Tomi has appointed herself the far, far Right's spokeswoman where outrage is concerned. Her most inflammatory rants always seem to be ones in which she is taking a black man to task; most notably, her rants against actor Jessie Williams following his acceptance speech at the BET awards last year and Colin Kaepernick regarding is decision to sit during the National Anthem.

To (some) Black Men...why though

Apparently it is super trendy for (some...before the "not all" chorus lifts every voice and sings) Black men to "drag" black women on social media. My question: why though?? What is going on? Okay, Black men who have "issues" with Black women are nothing new. As a Black woman who is "darker than a brown paper bag," I am quite familiar with all the old tropes: "Black women are too ghetto...don't wear their own hair...don't respect Black men...have too much drama...are loud...destroyed the Black family..." etc., ad infinitum. But here lately, it seems, Black men are well and truly taking issue with us in every imaginable way. Tyrese, French Montana, Trick Daddy, and the like all seem to have, what I am sure they deem, serious grievances with Black woman, and I just don't get it. And let's not talk about the "Hotep" brothers who are quick to, in the same breath call the Black woman God and tell us we need to stop…

Political blog hiatus is over... just in time for the fall of the Republic

Well Loves, I am back from my..um.. 2 year-long political blog hiatus, and it appears I am just in time for the fall of the Republic. Donald J. Trump is the cotton-picking President of the United States! I will admit, on the night of the election, as the results came in, I cried. Though I was not a big fan of Hillary Clinton's, I most certainly did not want her to lose to the man I call "Cheeto Jesus!" Come on America! Seriously! We go from a professorial President, to one who couldn't spell "professorial" if you gave him the first eleven letters. But, as Americans are wont to do, we dealt in extremes, and handed the country over to a political novice with Neo-Nazi, anti-Semetic, misogynistic, and racists tendencies. *High-Five*
Trump has been in the Oval for 87 days, and the world has seen a host of missteps, accusations of incompetence, and of course, the high drama that are his ties to Russia.



We could view a timeline of the insanity occurring by way of …

Donald J. Trump, Terrorist

Donald J. Trump is the GOP front-runner for the Presidential nomination and he is a terrorist. I wish I was being hyperbolic, but I am not. Anyone who has been following the circus that is the GOP nominating process has to understand things have gotten really real if this guy is at the head of the pack. First of all, let's define the term "terrorist":

"A person, group, or organization that uses violent action, or the threat of violent action, to further political goals." - Wiktionary.org

This is Trump's entire political platform. He use fear of violent action from blacks, Muslims, China...anyone who is not white to galvanize the less than intellectual Americans who make up his base. For Trump, there is now limit to race baiting, xenophobia, slander, of just plain lying if it is going to advance his political career.

When Trump first announced he was running for President, I like many others thought this was a stunt to hype ratings for his reality t.v. show…

Republicans hate us...yes, all of us.

Recently, I have been doing a lot of reading on the Enlightenment and the great minds it spawned. The 19th century was a period of upheaval all over the globe. The collective mind was being challenged to separate superstition from reason. I find this period of history fascinating based on where we are as a nation currently. Of particular interest to me has been the thoughts of Karl Marx. (Yes, thatKarl Marx) Without getting into the minutiae, Marx basically saw Capitalism as a severely flawed economic system. The basic premise is Capitalism is a system in which the worker is exploited by the Capitalist to the point of losing his individual freedom of mind and soul.  Relationships are based solely on monetary gains and losses, and the worker is generally always on the losing end. For Marx, the only logical outcome and solution would be for  workers (the majority) to organize and revolt against the Capitalists (the minority.) Such a revolt would be the only way to shift the balance of p…

Anthony Weiner is in love with his penis, aren't most men?

Aside from the birth of the Royal baby, the news has been preoccupied with former U.S. Representative and current New York Mayoral candidate, Anthony Weiner's obsession with sending strangers pictures of himself. What a scandal! A man, a man I tell you, is obsessed with his penis and can’t help but show it off! I mean, from a very early age they become enthrall by it, and let’s be fair, they have to handle it every day…several times a day! How could the world possibly be surprised? Wait, the world isn’t. Only in America is this news. Maybe not all or even most men are sending pictures of themselves to strange women, but a lot are, and who cares? Yes…yes…I know…he is in a position of power…he was a Senator…he has an obligation to the public…Yes, all of that is true, but again I ask, why is this news?

It’s not really, but it sells and it distracts us from the real issues the country is facing at the moment. Just like the Royal baby, Anthony Weiner’s “scandal” is a way for the medi…
