“When you hear about slavery for 400 years — for 400 years?” he said. “That sounds like a choice. You was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all? We’re mentally in prison.”

Sometimes certain situations are bothering us and it feels like it is the end of the world. You may want to a break from your normal life or reality, even if it’s for a day. Sometimes a vacation, hobby, or even a book can help but not everyone have the time to do that. Sometimes those things don’t...

Everyone is different and have something about them that makes them who they are. Many people judge. It’s hard for some to stop when it’s human nature but it’s not fair.

Summer is coming up. Yes that time of year to be free and wear anything you want is right around the corner. I guess for some it’s considered no clothes season too.

I've always heard that your college years are supposed to be the best four years of your life. To be blunt, that has got to be the hottest sack of garbage if I have ever heard one.

It's that time of the year when Kanye puts social media in a frenzy. This time it wasn't for one of his famous drunk rants, not about his celebrity wife Kim Kardashian, or for his new album thats on the way.
