BRWN BRWN celebrates diversity and the accomplishments of people of color.

We, as consumers of content and commerce, are more discerning than ever. With all the options that the internet has presented, people expend their energy, money, and time towards things that speak to them in a very specific way. Gone is the era when we all watched the same news, the same commercials, and shopped at the same stores. Not now, when we have options. But are the options diverse enough? There have to be enough of us to constitute "a market" but then why are we still fighting to see people we identify with on big screens? IF EVERY DOLLAR WE SPEND IS A VOTE TOWARDS THE KIND OF WORLD WE WANT TO LIVE IN, THEN WE NEED BETTER CANDIDATES. WE WANT TO SEE MORE OF US, BECAUSE CONTRARY TO WHAT POPULAR MEDIA PORTRAYS, THERE ARE MORE OF US. Other minority media entities are out there, as well as culture-specific driven initiatives, but there is certainly nothing like this. We wanted a platform that would make our global children viciously proud to be from their respective motherlands. One that was current and forward, relevant, yet rooted in heritage. In that, lies our unique selling proposition. We are a wealthy people, rich in past and future. We can relate, create, and innovate. But before we can sell, we must tell. And before we can tell, we must show. This is what birthed BRWN.

Mission: Sharing and telling stories that matter to those between the colors black and white.

‘Uncomfortable’ White Women & What’s Hiding In Plain Sight

Why did so many white women get upset about JLo and Shakira’s Super Bowl halftime show?

“Uncomfortable.” This was the word that stood out to me upon reading the slew of comments in a local community Facebook thread on Super Bowl night in my mostly white, mostly liberal, upper-middle class New Jersey neighborhood. The second thing that…

Shakira and JLo. 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🔥🔥🔥

Shakira and Jennifer Lopez were Latina superwomen in their sparkling Super Bowl halftime show. They sang, shimmied and thoroughly outshone the brief appearances by their guests, both reggaeton stars: Bad Bunny and J Balvin. “The show was a no-nonsense affirmation of Latin pride and cultural diversity in a political climate where immigrants and American Latinos have been widely demonized,” writes Jon Pareles, our chief pop music critic. https://nyti.ms/391eYh3
