Here’s the first episode of my latest podcast.
Two funny women talking pop culture, politics and whatever else pops into their heads during team time. Drink up!
I had the pleasure of being invited to a screening and artist talk of the documentary series The Triptych, at the Fashion Institute of Technology, featuring CNN contributor and Image activist Michael Angela Davis, and world renowned Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu. The short documentary highlights visual artist Sanford Biggers, Wangechi Mutu, and Barron Claiborne. Read more at MSVIXENMAG.COM

A disturbing story emerged out of the Bronx on Thursday. Two Muslim sisters, Lamis Chapman and Khalia Wilson, aged 12 and 14 respectively, told the New York Daily News that they were thrown to the ground, put in chokeholds, and had their hijabs violently torn off by members of the NYPD, for a reason that remains unclear.
Chapman and Wilson said they were playing handball around 9:30 pm in the park near their home in the Lester Patterson Houses in Mott Haven, the Bronx, when police approached them and asked them to leave, as the park was closed.
The girls recounted that the cops followed them out of the park, and one grabbed Wilson from behind, putting her in a chokehold and wrestling her to the ground. “They said they asked for ID. I didn’t hear them,” reported Wilson. When her sister protested, she was also thrown to the ground, and both sisters’ headscarves were ripped off.
"I kept saying, ‘I’m 14! What are you doing? We’re not bad kids,’" explained Wilson.
When their 15-year-old brother, Shytike Wilson, saw the police assaulting his younger sisters from a window, he ran to their aid. “I asked them why my sisters were in handcuffs,” he said, when the police, “charged me, picked me up, and slammed me on the floor.”
An 18-year-old college student, Jonathan Harris, became involved when he heard the girls screaming and ran to the park to help. He told the cops to leave the teens alone and took out his cell phone to record the incident, but was also subjected to police abuse.
Out of hand. Smh
Someone asked me what my favorite word was, and this was the conclusion I came up with
I’ve decided my favorite word is fellatio, not because of what it means. I like the amount of syllables it has for such a short word. Also, I like that the way the word flows out your mouth. It looks good orally. A word about oral stimulation that also looks good said orally.
That’s pretty damn clever don’t ya think
