It’s cute that politicians across the country are taking up the very real and very serious opioid addiction epidemic that’s taking place in rural and suburban white communities, but I can’t help but feel confused and overlooked by the fact black communities have been suffering because of drug abuse for decades.
Over the weekend, I heard a white politician from somewhere refer to drug addiction as “drug misuse”. My jaw almost hit the floor. Drug…misuse. “Oops, I’m…

People voted for Trump for a lot of reasons. Maybe it was in desperation to reclaim that super dangerous coal mining job that disappeared a decade ago, or the desire to “shake up Washington”. Whatever delusional or self-destructive bullshit those folks told themselves, it’s pretty clear—considering the rhetoric—that Trump voters are either flat out racist or completely apathetic to racism. Not only did Trump supports chant, cheer, and ultimately reward, the most racist…Continue

You know that one uncle you always try to avoid at every family gathering? No, not the embarrassingly drunk one who just makes you uncomfortable but is relatively harmless. That one you still love. I'm talking about the other one. The one you hate. The one your aunt Gloria didn't invite to the cookout but he still found out anyway and so she had to pretend it was just a mistake, but everyone knows she's lying.

Texas Representative Jessica Farrar, D-Houston, filed a bill this past Friday that would penalize men for "unregulated masturbatory emissions." House Bill 4260, aka the “Man’s Right to Know Act”, satirically flips the language used in anti-choice legislation to demonstrate would encourage men to “fully abstinent” that allows for "occasional masturbatory emissions inside health care and medical facilities." Other parts require men to wait a mandatory 24 hours after a health…Continue

Former president George W. Bush has condemned Trump’s racism. A lot of viral articles have him sounding like the voice of reason, which in all honesty is amazing and wholly inaccurate. Really, it’s the most “pot calling the kettle black” situation we’ve found ourselves in. The media has created this spin to make W seem like the angel amongst a sea of demonic Republicans and all I have to say to that is... Bruh.
We get it. Trump is trash, so in comparison, everything…

White nationalist hip hop music praising lynching, white power and the Ku Klux Klan played in the background, while messages on the screen said…Continue
