I don't usually engage in, encourage or escalate name calling and personal attacks on social media, but my IDGAF is showing. It's time for me to take a break. The special ones know how to find me offline.

I wonder how many of you will actually take advantage of that.

Time magazine photographer Joakim Eskildsen was commissioned to document life below the poverty line. What he discovered was shocking

“People are disillusioned with the fact that it is so difficult to get by today. They said there is no American dream any more. This, they said, was the American reality.” This was what the Danish-born photographer Joakim Eskildsen found, and in turn highlighted, when he was commissioned by Time magazine to photograph Americans living below the poverty line.

What is African Feminism? Many feminists from around the world have contested the idea of whether modern conceptions of feminism are African or un-African. Indeed, feminism has existed in Africa since the times of Queen Nzinga of what is now Mozambique and Yaa Asantewaa of Ghana. These women have inspired contemporary African feminists, who have contributed significantly to feminism in various ways—whether it be through art, music, writing, policy. They have been committed to bringing the voices of African women into the spaces that they work within, and they are indeed change-makers—not only on the African continent, but also throughout the African Diaspora. 

Theo Sowa is Chief Executive Officer of the African Women’s Development Fund. She has previously worked as an independent advisor for a wide range of international and social development issues. Her work has covered advocacy, service delivery, evaluation, facilitation, policy, and organizational development with a range of international and intergovernmental organizations and grant-making foundations.

Geek Question of the Day: Continuing in our reviews of fictional products, we've got a household item straight out of the 23rd century. Yup, tonight's question is; Assuming you've had it for a week, what would be your Amazon review for the fully functional Star Trek-style matter/food replicator that you received from them? Oh and if you get a few minutes to sign up for and give us a hand with the beta, that would be amazing. Thanks everyone for your help so far! #gqotd

Gawd do I deal with this all the time.
"Act/Speak like a man." When I act or speak like my male peers or have the audacity to demand recognition and respect for my ideas, people say I'm being an angry Black woman. UGH!

The "angry Black girl/woman" stereotype only occurs whenever Black women have the unmitigated gall to speak their minds with passion and power, to care for themselves first, and to celebrate our humanity. This stereotype has long been used to shame us into silence and complicity. If tone matters more than message to you, the problem isn't the way it's said. The problem is YOU.

And other women. ;)

You think, "talk like them, they'll listen, understand better, you'll be more effective." But, no. You're a whole bunch of negative terms, you're hurting little manly feelings, you're supposed to be "nice." Be "nice" and you're not assertive enough.

It's exhausting at times trying to walk that very fine line.
