America… Voting Isn’t Enough

“There is a lot of mediocrity being celebrated, and a lot of wonderful stuff being ignored or discouraged.” – Sean Penn Yep, I said it. Let me first say that I am happy that people are voting, I really am, but something has really been annoying about this whole election from two different angles. For one, people who say: “I am not voting, because we … Continue reading America… Voting Isn’t Enough

This is America

Every time I fly out of Austin, I park my car in the extended lot, it’s not too expensive (yet). Parking at this spot requires me to ride on a shuttle to and from the airport.

Let’s Take A Look In The Mirror

It is classism at its finest, and we have to stop acting like it’s not happening. If you woke up in a different position or circumstance, you might think differently and wonder why black folks who’ve “made” it, are nowhere to be found.

Being a Woman in a Man’s World: My Thoughts on Hillary with a Pinch of Pat Summitt

I must say this article is really less about Hillary, but about my views about how women should go about supporting each other. Let’s try to hold each other to the right standard and support them in the same way we support men. Let’s stop holding ourselves to a higher and more unrealistic standard, and stop burdening ourselves for no apparent reason. We make mistakes, we are human. If we aren’t forgiving our fellow women than we probably aren’t forgiving ourselves. And trust me, men are not thinking twice about it, and moving on to the next thing.

Law Student 2: Why would we do that? We should go to the Police Law Professor: Do what I say and ask questions later? Law Student 3: No, this is insane.
