Phife Didn't Choose Diabetes, But Is That What You're Doing?
"If you go up to someone and say "You on point Tip?" and they don't respond "All the time Phife." they can't be your friend." @michaelsmith — Dave (@TrapBasquiat) March 23, 2016 I never saw A Tribe Called Quest perform—when they hit up my college campus in ...

Heading to the Motherland—The (Kinda) White One
I’m on an Aer Lingus flight somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, swiftly heading toward the Emerald Isle—the very place that some of my ancestors hail from. Over the past six weeks I've sifted through digital baptismal records, ship manifests, and census docu...

Only in Con Artistlandia Does a Curly Kinky Weave and a Tan Make You Black
Kinky-curly weave + tan ≠ Black Con artist: a person who cheats or tricks others by persuading them to believe something that is not true. In the late 1990s I was on board a plane that was sitting on the runway in Birmingham, Alabama, waiting for takeoff. T...

That White Man Is Not Your Daddy
"I like your skin. You have such nice skin. What do you use on it? Do you use this stuff?" I talk to strangers—sometimes they're good Samaritans and will pay for your groceries when you've forgotten your wallet—so when the woman standing next to me at the O...

Figuring Out When (and How) to Replace Your Real Life 'Hard Drive'
Half asleep, I pressed the power button. The laptop in front of me began to turn on, a series of familiar whizzing and humming noises. And then a grey screen appeared. I hadn't seen that screen the day before—or the day before that—but there was the usual b...

Janet Jackson Is Probably Somewhere Giving a Side-Eye to Our Reaction to Lenny Kravitz's Penis
I should have learned my lesson that one time I clicked on the hashtag #EggplantFridays and learned that the term does not refer to vegetarian recipes. But on Tuesday when Lenny Kravitz's name started trending on Twitter and I checked to see what was up wit...

Thanks to This Good Samaritan, Maybe the Hit-and-Run Driver Who Struck My Husband Won't Get Away
When the telephone rings at 4 AM, it's never good news. This morning the phone call was from my husband telling me that he'd been hit by a van down the street from our house. He bikes to work and the driver had struck him, and then left the scene. My husban...

White Happiness? Black Misery: I'm the Mother of a Teenage Threat
When my now 11 and 14-year-old sons were little boys, I often felt uncomfortable when strangers gushed over how cute they were. It wasn't that they  weren't  adorable—they were and then some. But the compliments directed at them made me wonder how long it w...

A Murder in the Neighborhood

Tears and Cheers: Today Was My Last Day Being Treated For Breast Cancer
Nine months ago my doctor called me and the first thing she did after quickly dispensing with the usual hello, how are you? pleasantries was ask if I was in the car driving. I knew in that instant that she was going to tell me that the lump I'd found in my ...
