Take a good look people. Take a real good hard look of racism in it’s true raw form.
Janelle Ambrosia

On May 30, 2014, Ms. Janelle Ambrosia ( a stripper) with her two children had a verbal altercation with an unknown driver who videotaped the exchange outside a Cheektowaga, NY Dollar General. What we don’t see is what took place before the blatant spewing of ignorance being shouted in front of the children. Continue reading

Over the weekend breaking news came out about the Clippers owner Donald Sterling making racist Sterling’s voice in the recording stating “[we] do not condone or share [his] views.” The NBA has launched a full investigation into the recording to determine if it is Sterling’s voice. But what will happen after the investigation confirms the voices? will they strip him of being an owner, can they do that legally? If not, then what? A Fine? A Suspension? Either way he still owns the team. Continue reading

Michael Dunn testifies in his First degree Murder trial in the shooting of Jordan Davis

February 12, 2014 the defense in trial of Michael Dunn (who shot and killed Jordan Davis) rested. Will justice finally be served You may remember this story, we hope it stays in the front of your mind. We did a piece on the tragic shooting on December 2, 2012 (Crank it up for Jordan Davis) that outlined the account of the shooting. Michael Dunn who entered a plea of not guilty argued that it was self-defense. He shot in fear of his life after the teens in the SUV brandished a gun. Continue reading

Absurd Cheerios Caller

First, let us remind everyone again this is Black History month. The Super Bowl is over and there are a few good commercials. General Mills has again embraced interracial couples by showcasing this beautiful your girl in its new ad (above). The original sparked a lot of negative comments from both the black and white communities. However, those comments are nothing like the one spouted from a middle age white woman who called into the D.L. Hughley show on February 3, 2014 after the airing of the new Cheerio’s Commercial.

Degrading Times: When Images Have Voices

This weekend we celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. birthday.  While hundreds of thousands celebrated the slain civil rights leader birthday an online magazine Buro 247 posted a fashion piece on its website with the following picture.

white dominance and superiority

Before you get too angry the black woman who is seemingly half nude is not a real woman, but an actual chair, there is also a white woman version of the chair.  The problem in the picture is the white woman who is a Russian editor-in-chief of Garage Magazine is Dasha Zhukova. Buro 247, along with the magazine’s editor Miroslava Duma, thought this image was a good choice to depict fashion and art. However, that ideology was lost in its depiction of white  supremacy and dominance. It seems that the fashion and art are the two main outlets to produce and promote such blatant racism without any repercussions.   Though this is a Russian media outlet that did this the online magazine quickly cropped the image only showing Ms Zhukova sitting, but it was not done before the backlash of negative responses came pouring into the magazine.  Despite this idiocracy we hope that you had a great Freedom Day.
