Is chasing a thug good for your love life?

Read More

The media plays a huge role in determining what we want out of our lives and out of our relationships.  Black people are fed specific imagery that sometimes glorifies thugs and athletes over regular, hard-working men, and there are some who feel that these messages are harmful to young women seeking mates. But is it natural for a woman to chase after a man who seems “dangerous” and “edgy?”  If…

[leadplayer_vid id=”539F75845CC89″]   Dr. Boyce Watkins and Russell Simmons have gathered a coalition of supporters from various walks of life to stand together to correct the serious injustices of the prison industrial complex.  Rehabilitation and even punishment are acceptable in themselves, but when a nation builds an entire economy around the unjust incarceration of millions of its citizens, that nation is serving as a tool for its own demise.  Families…

Dr Boyce Watkins: What the OJ Trial taught me about white people, black people and America

by Dr. Boyce Watkins I remember 20 years ago, waking up from taking a nap.  I was dating a really horrible woman at the time who shall remain nameless.  But then again, I probably think she’s horrible because she dumped me for a better-looking man, so just chalk it up to my being a hater.  But anyway, the woman in the previous sentence said “Hey Coco (that was my nickname…

by Dr. Boyce Watkins I grew up loving the sport of football.  I used to dream that one day, if I worked hard enough, I’d have a chance to run with the greats of the NFL.  After all, I was the second fastest kid in my class, I watched every game every Sunday, and I was able to run over the other kids in my neighborhood when we played in…

Dr. Boyce: Kendrick Lamar’s Stance Against GQ Racism Makes Him My Rapper of the Year

Read More

by Dr. Boyce Watkins The rapper Kendrick Lamar was already making headlines for laying out some of the dopest rhymes in the world of hip-hop.  A pure lyricist at heart, he was breaking norms and challenging the industry, setting new bars for artists who’ve become accustomed to getting rich by repeating toxic nursery rhymes.  That’s what made me like him. But his latest move, standing up to racial stereotypes presented…

Read More

by Dr. Boyce Watkins The rapper Jay-Z has been under fire recently for agreeing to partner with Barneys, a high-end New York department store that has been accused of racially profiling African Americans.  It appears that due to new policies implemented in the store, its clerks have a hard time believing that a black person would have the money to buy a $600 belt.  A better question might be “why…

Dr. Boyce: Six Things Corporate-Owned Rappers Do to Get Inside Your Head

Read More

by Dr. Boyce Watkins We know about the power of hip-hop, which is my favorite genre of music.  Hip-hop can either produce an entire generation of soldiers ready for liberation, or it can produce a pack of misguided buffoons who are looking for a white man to tell them what to do.  The hip-hop music on urban radio stations around the country have become nothing less than weaponized brainwashing, and…

Dr. Boyce: The Suicide of this Former NFL Player Might Be Cause for Black Male Reflection

Read More

by Dr. Boyce Watkins When I read about the recent suicide of former San Diego Charger Paul Oliver, I was sad.  The age of 29 is always too early to die, and there is so much life one can experience in their thirties and forties, so it’s hurtful to hear about someone giving all that up.   But life can be deceptive, and one interesting thing about being in your…

by Dr. Boyce Watkins One thing that always bothered me about church are those who preach one thing and do another.  It’s all too acceptable for the pastor to drop the name of Jesus to his fifth extramarital baby’s mama, or for a woman to leave her bible in the car while she’s twerking it up at the club. Don’t get me wrong, everyone has some kind of gap between…
