I wrote this piece as a freelance reporter for a black magazine six years ago. It was in response to homophobia in the black community and the reaction of the black church. Although this article was aimed at a particular audience, I believe what I found can be applied to any group or ethnicity. I wrote this article…Continue
The following piece was originally written for the NEIU Independent.
The film Two Spirits is a sad but empowering film about a hate crime committed against Freddie Martinez, a Two-Spirited transgendered Navajo youth in Colorado. 16-year-old Freddie was brutally killed by being repeatedly hit in the head with a large rock. Unlike the Matthew Shepherd case in Oct. of 1998, the Freddy Martinez case got little media…Continue

In every Presidential election I hear the same line: It’s the economy stupid. I don’t claim to be a genius, but I think that I could safely say that in this election it is not the economy. It is about rights, gay rights and women’s rights. Those should be the two main issues that task the political landscape. Politicians will deflect comments that are made in their party and state that “We should talk about things that are really important, jobs and the economy.”
That’s bullshit. The…Continue
In general, when it comes to women I am slow to recognize any signal even when as obvious as a stick in the eye. Being the typical dumb guy, that any woman would turn me down registered as a clear sign that I wasn't trying hard enough. After a woman told me, "I think you're an ass with no common sense.…Continue

Ok, so of course I have to start off with why I became a christian in the first place. I was 'saved' when i was 14 at the end of June, right before my first year of high school. During my 6th and 7th grade years, I became very depressed. I had no true interest in life and in was due largely to the fact that I had no plans for my life. I didn't know what I wanted, and basically let everybody else, but myself, make my choices.
My 8th grade year, I went to a new school and was surrounded…Continue
