Behold: The Reality Of Blue Ivy

In case you missed it, the Grammys were on last Monday. The award show is not so much about recognising talent, as recognising glamour, and then bowing down accordingly. Case in point: super power couple, Beyoncé Knowles Carter and her husband, Sean, also known as Jay Z. In 2017, it ...

Dismantling The Sexual Harassment Claim Against Aziz Ansari

I recently heard about Aziz Ansari being involved in a sex scandal. The outrage was alarming. So I read about the so-called ‘sexual harassment’. And I fear that at the rate we are going, we are watering down sexual harassment to mean “he did not pull down my panties gently”. ...
