I Don’t Want to Be a Hashtag…

So I am sitting here in Starbucks illegally downloading movies on piratebay enjoying my iced coconut milk il_570xN.1051635703_ahhqcaramel macchiato this fine Sunday morning and felt a crazy wave of frustration come over me. If you are my FB friend you have seen spurts of these in the last month… they are usually 4 sentence long with some form of witty wordplay to protect my non-POC friends from being uncomfortable.

Because you know making non-POC people feel comfortable is the responsibility  of every “good black person” to combat the scariness of those angry radical ones…

Well… Hmm : Transgender Athletes — Fair or Nah?

So I was having this conversation with a friend, AP, yesterday and I thought I would write a bit about it here.

I am not sure whether you have heard or not, but there is a debate surrounding high school senior, Nattaphon Wangyot, a transgender student, winning all-state honors1 in girls’ track and field. You can see the video and read more of the particulars here but you guys are smart enough to know what the question is.

Is it fair for a transgender woman to be competing with a CIS woman2  in sports?

Yeah I know I should have started blogging about something less controversial… like stem cell research or the 2016 election. Continue reading

Guess Who’s Bizzack – 24 Hours in #Barbados

Hola Lovebugs (or the the lovebugs who haven’t left me for greener blog pastures)!

What prompted me to get back on the e-mic? Three syllables Bar-Bay-Dos

Here is a compilation of my Snapchat videos (sorry for all the wind in the background — I was on an island)! Continue reading
