Another comic I started last night. This one is basically about what it was like being African American in high school, minus the supernatural transformation at the end.


Tears!

I believe a strong woman may be stronger than a man, particularly if she happens to have love in her heart. I guess a loving woman is indestructible.

Team haven’t forgotten about Mike Brown, just saving my energy in case I have to turn up if the grand jury finds Darren Wilson innocent. #stillwoke

One of my mentors at Yale, the great anthropologist and art historian Robert Ferris Thompson, has documented that three of the most important words, and thus, concepts, brought to these (and other) shores via Africans are Cool, Funky, and Hip. My argument follows: you can no more separate Black from Cool than you can separate French cooking from France, or yoga from India. Cool has African roots, period. We, Black people, bring the aesthetic of Cool to the table of global culture, and should be recognized intellectually and economically for doing so.
