Rachel Jeantel is not on trial: Judging her accent is a show of your ignorance not hers.

Really, I mean, really? Recently on a facebook group, an African who identifies as …

I often receive some very ignorant comments from believers, mostly Nigerian Christians who pompously inform me that I am going to burn in hell for not accepting Jesus Christ as my personal savior.

When I read the story of the 4 students of University of Port Harcourt that were lynched on allegation of theft, I wept for my country one more time. I have not watched the video and I do not ever intend to watch it. It is very difficult getting an online report of the story …
