Your Blackness is Not My Blackness So Please Stay in Your Lane

The social media can be both a curse and a blessing. It is a blessing because you have the opportunity to read the viewpoints of millions of people.

More Than Meets The Eye

When I was 17 and my parents told me we were moving to the United States of America I didn’t quite know how to react to that piece of news, but when they told me we were moving to Texas the reaction was immediate: dread.

The Weight of Feminism

“As a society, we encourage girls and women to be emotionally accessible, and in touch with their feelings; we say that it’s an innately feminine trait.

Why We Shouldn’t Overturn Roe v. Wade (yet): A Pro-lifer’s Point of View

I was never really good at picking sides. When my friends would argue and then ask me to weigh in, more often than not I told them I was on my side, not anyone else’s, and promptly invoked Switzerland status.

Women!

It wasn’t until 1920 (the year of my 92-year-old mother’s birth) that we even had the right to vote. Certainly this is no time for us to squander that hard-won power.
