If people were as outraged at our government fucking us over as they are about athletes breaking the law America would really be something.
Great. Like having no taxes or bills. Like God high fived you and affirmed your existence. Like how Aaron Carter felt after he beat Shaq. Like Kel feels as orange soda is sliding down his throat. Like how you feel after you have successfully cussed someone out. Triumphant. Exuberant. Alive. Human. Joy. Present. Valid.

The Cosby Show, what has long been considered the greatest black sitcom of all time, celebrates its 30th anniversary in two weeks. That the show’s legendary run is marked by a return to a more diverse television landscape this fall seems fitting: NBC, ABC, and FOX, along with other networks, will debut a variety of shows that cast minority actors in lead roles (several are women of color). This push for more nuanced programming brings to mind the 1990s, a decade known for its rich portrayal of black life through shows like Living Single and Roc.

Tonight I was hit with a hand full of eggs and huge rock on my back and called “Nigger” by a white guy in the backseat of a dark blue truck as I was riding my bike on Westheimer and Jeanetta. They drove too fast for me to get the license plate number. I had to get a cop to drive me home. This night makes me wonder how blacks did it back in the day, and why the community is looking the way it is now. I am trying not to cry, but I am in physical pain from the rock and not understanding why I deserved this.
