THIS. We’re in debt because we were told we need to go to the best schools/get the best professional degrees to create the intergenerational wealth that our parents/grandparents don’t have. Then we realize that wages/ COL haven’t adjusted to this promise, and many of us are even worse off than our parents. It’s Read more

Yep. For all the people retorting with Trump’s racist dirt, that’s not the point. He doesn’t care. The GOP doesn’t care. The point is to show that Democrats aren’t clean; the GOP doesn’t care how dirty their own party is. Read more

Something that I haven’t seen brought up for people who may say there’s also a “nude” version—the nude is actually a realistic beige and not white. If this is supposed to be an actual face, why isn’t the darker one brown? Very few dark faces are straight up black. Read more

It’s a beautiful city, just aesthetically speaking. And it feels like a lot of great American cities rolled into one. I’d tell any tourist to visit Chicago first before anywhere else (in the summer). It’s oddly underrated.

Hence my use of the phrase “inter-cultural.” There are still dominant cultures within the African Diaspora that, if they frequently “borrowed” from lesser-known cultures, it would give others pause.
