What can Brown do for you? More like, "what CAN'T Brown do for you?" UPS employees deliver by truck, plane, train, car, even bike... and they do it all while wearing those oh-so-becoming brown shorts. Whether you want it ship...

Every Atlanta Braves fan knows there's only one guy you can count to deliver a flawless performance every single time he steps on the diamond at Turner Field: Timothy Miller. Timothy Miller is a classically trained Operatic T...

I don't know who you are yet, but based on past winners, there's a 97% chance you're black. Yes, only one white guy has ever defied the odds/gravity and won the most prestigious award that dunking has to offer... and that win...

I have a dream that my future children will one day live in a nation where they can miss more than one day of school each year because of a black person. Until that day, at least we have Martin Luther King Jr. Day to look for...

In the spirit of orange soda, watermelon, and being good at sports, affinity for fried chicken is another black stereotype that needs to be embraced. Fried chicken is delicious! Now am I saying that EVERY black person likes f...

I don't know it came into being, but according to Netflix, orange is the new black. I'm not sure Netflix is the supreme authority on color palettes (I think that's either Crayola or Bob Ross), but since Netflix did revive my ...

Let's get one thing straight, Jordan is the greatest basketball player ever. Don't let anyone get cute and tell you otherwise. If LeBron was really the best, he woulda been in Space Jam. Now that that's settled, let's talk ab...

This is my 100th Black History Month profile and I feel that makes me a bona fide black historian. I'm certainly not black -- I'm snowman pale, I can't dance, and I can barely dunk on an 8-foot basketball goal -- but I do I t...

Y'all gonna make me lose my mind if you don't think DMX deserves some Black History Month honors. A rapper AND an actor?! There just aren't that many people out there who can do both. You know, besides Drake, Gucci Mane, Luda...

Sure, King Arthur did some noteworthy things. He pulled that sword out of that stone, he searched for the Holy Grail, he fought courageously in many a battle, but tell me: why weren't there any brothers on the Knights of the ...

The first time I heard Justin Bieber on the radio, I didn't hate it. I also didn't think he was white. Or male. I quite honestly thought he was a 12-year old black girl. "That's sweet," I thought, "this young lady is singing ...

Introduction
I was born and raised in Atlanta and attended Georgia Tech where I majored in HTS. When I'm not cheering on my beloved Jackets, I can be found doing something almost as noble... teaching high school. Though I still hold out hope that I'll one day be a professional athlete, I figure shaping the minds of future generations is nothing to sneeze at. Despite ending that last sentence in a preposition, I also fancy myself a writer and dabble in being a huge sports fan, a music snob, and a terrible dancer.
