#KIQ | guess who’s black? perhaps pharrell has done what other black celebrities couldn’t, don’t or won’t. or perhaps, we can find another angle to critique (muhahaha). but i dig the image regardless of the “pressure”. i hope others peeped the social media dialogue and had the strength to open an eye (or two).
i remember when i first saw the track listing, like…0_o but i listened to the song and lowered my eyebrows. like when i listened to god bless us all and covered my heart. or when i listened to you can do it too and pursued my passion. thank you pharrell for listening too. #KIQ

WTF | this video is the wackness. i grew up watching “remember the times” while my middle school aged little sister is subjected to watching this. i suppose katy perry’s “appropriation” of hip hop synths and bass via juicy j was not enough. (never mind the verses, the chorus is at least bearable if not catchy.) but this video, for me, mocks Kemet civilization and re-instills the false imagery of white superiority on the African continent; particularly in Kemet. i mean, was greece and rome not available?? get off thou nuts. furthermore, being a creator and consumer of music videos myself, the plot and dancing is pretty weak. just an overall, yikes. between nicki and this, “urban” superstars could really give a fuck about black history or the month they drop their blasphemy.

#FILM | “american promise”, documents black parents charting their children’s education despite cultural pitfalls. Play the trailer above.

American Promise spans 13 years as Joe Brewster and Michèle Stephenson, middle-class African-American parents in Brooklyn, N.Y., turn their cameras on their son, Idris, and his best friend, Seun, who make their way through one of the most prestigious private schools in the country. Chronicling the boys’ divergent paths from kindergarten through high school graduation at Manhattan’s Dalton School, this provocative, intimate documentary presents complicated truths about America’s struggle to come of age on issues of race, class and opportunity.”
