A Case for Magick

I pride myself in the fact that I am an avid skeptic. This is sort of tragic in a way because I am not alone in this feeling and in my skepticism I tend to overlook important tools and methods that aid in truth-finding. In my diligence I can romanticize skepticism and distract myself from […]

A Reflection on Black Identity

This is an article recently written for 1619 Consulting: a group focussed on raising discussion and measures for racial equity in the corporate world. I was a guest writer and did a reflection on a song by Our Native Daughters titled, “Black Myself.” While this blog is focussed on philosophy, I am an Americana fan, […]

A Higher Plane of Communication

“I mean I want to be a force for real good. In other words, I know that there are bad forces. I know that there are forces out here that bring suffering to others and misery to the world, but I want to be the opposite force. I want to be the force, which is […]

Buddhism: The One True Religion?

I have for a long period of my young life vouched for eastern religions. Particularly buddhism.

A construct of human nature, no less. As a so-called “POC” I find it hypocritical of myself to acknowledge this identity that has […]

This position that so many stand on is punishable by death if some would have their way. What I speak of is centrism. It’s a very millennial and […]

The Real Problem with Monuments

Social waves continue to crash in the public uproar over the most recent civilian murders by so-called “law enforcement.” Gaining headlines even more recently are the reactionary calls to deface and take down historical monuments that represent colonial figures or anyone depicted as a symbol of the oppressive confederate agenda. Not an unfamiliar call to […]

A New Start

Cliches prevail for an inexperienced writer like myself. But I am an aspiring one nonetheless. To be frank, the title suits this post’s contents better than any other idea I’ve had. My posts in the past served as academic projects and for a particular course, in fact. With my relatively new employment at my local […]
