It made the cover of the New York Times. Ray Rice will┬ánot be indefinitely suspended by the NFL because he could not be punished for the same offense twice.

I was really struck by Elizabeth Plank’s remark that the public shouldn’t attack celebrities who identify themselves as “feminists.” (http://mic.com/articles/100676/aziz-ansari-just-came-out-as-a-feminist-with-one-perfectly-simple-analogy). Why? Because I critique mainstream celebrities all them time, and I’m not going to stop. For someone like, ummm Beyonce, to never post a pic of the way she looks when she actually just woke […]

Of […]

No one could hear or see “Anaconda” without commenting. It’s taken me a minute to put my thoughts to words, but Diana Veiga’s post in Clutch Magazine hit the nail on the head – Minaj could use her influence to create a message and culture of unity, but with Anaconda she has done just the […]

“Enumerated” means an itemized list. I always grit my teeth, scrunch up my nose, ruffle my eyebrows when Jadakiss lists illegal substances, documents related to the prison industrial complex, or just generally hard ish. “Aries, haze, diesel, sour.” Jadakiss boils it all down to just a few words that he doesn’t even have to connect […]
