Although not a deal-breaker, Combs' history is still relevant in the sense of the message it sends to those unable to actually hear him May 10. There are more reasons to give pause and maybe even the side-eye to Combs' appearance than to applaud the selection.

To let many men tell it, they are experts at deciphering the intentions of women and wooing them towards a mutual attraction, but this confidence quickly disperses when it comes to discussion of sexual assault.

Affirmative action has helped to provide the diversity that provided truth, even if not perfectly. Until we had a more perfect route to telling the truth of who we are and who we could be as a nation we needed to have something else in place.
I love soul food and sushi. Eve's Bayou and Gone with the Wind. Josephine Baker and Audrey Hepburn. Kanye West and Maroon 5. Some will accept it, some won't, but most importantly, I do.

Schuette is widely misunderstood as being a case about affirmative action. It is not. In fact, it leaves in place Supreme Court law recognizing diversity as a compelling governmental interest and permitting carefully constructed affirmative action programs.
College is an exciting time, but it's also an expensive time. With the average debt for graduating seniors hovering around $29,000 (according to CNN), every incoming freshman should be taking a crash course in College Finances 101.
American discourse demands that no one notice that being white gives people unearned advantages. It is long past time to admit that dominant groups do not prevail because their members are so exemplary but because the system is set up to ensure that they win even when they are mediocre.

Actress Kerry Washington may have recently called off her longtime engagement to struggling actor David Moscow, but the Bronx-born beauty knows how to make "marriage" work.
Well, maybe in theory.
The L'Oreal spokesmodel and star of the upcoming comedy 'I Think I Love My Wife,' has a string of acclaimed acting performances under her belt; most notably playing the wives of late soul music legend Ray Charles and notorious Uganda dictator Idi Amin, respectively, in the films 'Ray' and 'The Last King of Scotland.'
For the aforementioned films, lead actors Jamie Foxx and Forest Whitakermade history by winning the Academy Awards for Best Actor.
"The new rumor is, if you cast me as your wife, you win an Oscar," Washington joked during a press junket promoting 'Wife' at New York's Regency Hotel yesterday morning.
She may be onto something.
Regarding her own personal affairs, she remained mum, but did confirm: "my engagement was called off...It's personal."
In 'Wife,' which is directed by and stars Chris Rock, Washington plays a long lost friend of a married successful investment banker who needs help landing a job. The sex-deprived banker's conventional life gets turned upside down when things get too close for comfort.
On the subject of "marriage," Washington commented, "I know people who are married who are really, really happy and I know people who are married who aren't."
"I know people who live together and are really, really happy and I know people who live together and aren't," she continued. "So I think it's a personal decision. I think it's really about asking yourself what do I really want, and having the courage to ask yourself what do I want and doing it."
She noted that her parents are still married, and they were her inspiration.
'I Think I Love My Wife,' opens on March 16.
This summer, Washington will star opposite Michael Chiklis in the eagerly anticipated action flick 'Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.' She is also cast in 'Lakeview Terrace' with Samuel L. Jackson, and 'Life is Hot in Cracktown' with Evan Ross.
