About Black Nerd Problems: *
@blknrdproblems * * *

Omar Holmon and William Evans met in the summer of 2007 in a city neither one of them is from surrounded by people neither of them knew very well. None of that is really important though. They’ve been friends and some years later, they decided to co-found an editorial and informative website that focused on popular, nerd and geek culture from the perspective of People of Color. On May 15th, 2014, this website was launched and it has only picked up steam ever since.

We have a great team of writers and personalities. We have a lot of fun on this site because there is no pretense or ceiling on how we express our nerd-dom and if you enjoy it half as much as we do, we’ll be doing this dance for a long time.

Come on in. Get comfortable. There’s always something new to digest. Stay a while. We’re glad you’re here.
