I will start this by saying I dislike this show.
This essay was originally published on The Establishment on May 26, 2016. It has been republished on Black Girl Nerds, Huffington Post and Everyday Feminism. I wrote this because...well, because I had to. It was cathartic in many ways and it helped me deal with an aspect of my relationship that I didn't want to face...something nobody else seemed to be talking about.

The hatewatching continues...
It wasn't my fault. It was never my fault. It is always the fault of those who abuse and the ones who enable and protect them.
Put the fault firmly where it belongs: on the abusers.
Can we please stop pretending that we don't do this shit for the attention and because it's fun? Everything else is a damn bonus!
At some point, some white people had my trust. Now, I'm not sure it can ever be earned.
My review of HBO's Westworld - episode 6: The Adversary
Also known as Maeve is my everything!
Here is part two of some of the realities I deal with in my relationships with white people. I'm not going to lie - it's work. Constant work. And specific work that only you can decide if it's worth the effort.
It's work being in an interracial relationship, including friendships. There is hands-down a lack of respect of Black people that permeates interactions between white and Black people. Whether or not you decide to engage in that battle is a personal choice. It is a choice that I will not encourage but for which I will offer resources and support.
This is about me learning that sometimes the enemy appears from within. I had a lot of work to do on myself in order to improve many things in my life.
I didn't realize that I'd forgotten to post this on my own blog. This was originally published on Black Girl Nerds on March 2, 2016.
This episode almost killed Westworld for me. Read why.
2016 as been one hell of a year and this election cycle was the most openly racist that I've experienced in my lifetime and that's saying a lot. But here we are on election day and no matter what, we got some work to do.
Black people make up 13% of the population. We didn't make this mess.

I got stress, y'all. So much stress. I can't even bright side this shit.
I participated in the HBO Westworld panel in Atlanta, GA and had the opportunity to meet NASA Astronaut, Leland Melvin.
