The Six Freedoms Kept From Black Folk’s Grasp

Being black in America is one hell of an experience that white people, definitely would not trade. Being black in America means automatically to be feared as “America’s Boogeyman”. Being black in America means that you will have to give your children, very unique “talks” (that no other race has…

Short Story

I, Johnny Silvercloud, was, in the most passive-aggressive, gaslighting manner, was accused of transphobia from a prominent “social justice” Medium publication editor in a mass email. I asked for clarification just in case I see things wrong because the accusation was categorically passive-aggressive. The person never answered. The person never…

Maybe I just hate stupid people

Intro and Disclaimer

Before we begin as I chew the scene away like beef jerky teriyaki, I want to point out that I’m not talking about people who have a legitimate reason of not taking vaccines. I’m not talking about those who have compromised immune systems. I’m not talking about those who will…

Conservatives are a Suicide Cult

The logic of American Conservatives = It’s Perfectly fine to kill conservatives

“Cryle” Rittenhouse. A white boy’s tears are white supremacy’s ammunition.

Rittenhouse Logic

Technically, Rittenhouse was the #1 threat in the area the whole time. If no protesters or “rioters” killed anyone, and he killed two, then who was the threat here?

“When people argue on principles and disregard those principles fleetingly, only to readopt them later, one must pay attention to the…

Kyle Rittenhouse (Murderer)

Would a Judge Schroeder cut Black political gunmen, or white leftist ones, the same slack as he does Rittenhouse?

What If Kyle was Unapologetically Black?

What if things went differently? What if we changed one detail of the murderous white boy Kyle Rittenhouse and made him Black? Not only make Kyle Rittenhouse Black but also make his politics not rightwing? …

Cinema Analysis

I wish we as Americans were able to see our history for what it is

Jet Li in Tai Chi Master (also known as Twin Warriors) [1993]

It was a pretty chill weekend.

Hey man, I’ll have to admit, I’m pretty jealous. I’m having this realization of the fact that Chinese folk are like, “Aye, our Forefathers are evil warlords yo.” I genuinely wish Americans — white people of America to be precise — were capable of…


Before You Attempt to Pretend a Part of You Away, Examine WHY You Feel That Way

A troop of young Black girls dance in a parade for Martin Luther King’s Birthday in Anacostia, Washington D.C. You cannot pretend your Blackness away anymore than you can erase the Blackness in the presence of these young Black performing artists. Black and proud they are, and there’s nothing anyone can take away from them. Friendship Tech Prep Academy. | 20 Jan 2020 | Photo Credit: Johnny Silvercloud

All Types Out on These Internet Streets

So many things changed in less than a year on Medium. I saw nonsensical tech crap trending while Chauvin’s murder trial was the biggest trending thing in the world. I saw white supremacist white chicks argue that Black men are trained dog assassins with poisonous doggie treats (ridiculous, I know)…
