T-Murda (copyright: YBF) strikes again…(by the way, I didn’t know what my rap name was and now I have one!) I attempt to decipher the lyrics of yet another song I hear on the radio. This time, it’s “Pass Me the Hookah” by Tyga and a fella named Young Thug. I obviously still have some questions even after finding the lyrics, so stay tuned for further exploration……

FURTHER EXPLORATION OF THE NO FLEX ZONE

Perhaps you saw my recent Instagram video rapping along with Rae Sremmurd to No Flex Zone. I researched the lyrics so I could understand what I was bouncing along to in the car.

Operation Black Hair by Jessica Williams, The Daily Show

Operation Black Hair is absolutely hair-larious! As you all know, hair love is something that’s very close to my heart, and it’s come to the nation’s attention that the United States Army’s new hair regulations are unfairly targeting Black women and styles that compliment our natural hair texture. According to Army Regulation 670-1, cornrows and dreads are perceived as messy and get in the way of Black women doing their jobs. Seriously, weaves, wigs, and box braids are the approved options?? REALLY?!?! Do they really think that Black women have time to sit for those styles while they’re busy protecting our country?  Or even have access to get these styles done while on deployment?? Jessica Williams does a FANTASTIC job shining the light on this issue in a humorous way, and kudos to Jon Stewart and The Daily Show for bringing awareness to this ridiculous policy!
