It is never acceptable to beat a little kid bloody with a weapon, because that is always child abuse. I can't believe it's 2014 and I have to spell that out for people.

If you really want to join that golf club, and feel that it's OK because there is one rich black family there, please work harder. If you chose to send your children to a school which only has one rich black family, one Hispanic child with a scholarship, and three Asian kids, please work harder.
The movement often fails to challenge the very paradigm that encouraged women to chemically process their hair and thereby prevented them from remaining natural, in the first place.
Public officials at all levels chatter constantly about employment and job creation. Unfortunately, not enough of them seem concerned about the nonsensical barriers they and their predecessors erect that stand in the way of entrepreneurs seeking to earn an honest living.

Parenting is hard, and trying to figure the appropriate punishment gains nothing with the force of violence. Especially because it was done in the days of slavery, and in spite of the fact that it was done to us as children, it needs to stop.
Without arbitrary consequences for their defiance, I guess we're going to have to teach them the actual reasons why they should listen to our instructions. This presents two challenges. We're going to need good reasons, and somehow we have to get them to believe us.

Tyson Beckford is ready for his close-up -- again.
The BV Newswire has learned that the chisel-chest hottie -- also known as "the first black male supermodel" will be the host of Bravo's upcoming reality show 'Make Me A Supermodel.'
Along with fellow former supermodel Niki Taylor, Beckford will be the ringleader of the show, which is based on the successful UK series where beautiful and talented men and women are selected and will compete for a chance to launch their modeling career and win $100,000.
According to a network spokesperson, 'Supermodel' is scheduled to premiere in the first quarter of 2008.
Viewers will vote each week to determine who stays to walk the "Supermodel" catwalk again and who goes home.
Over a 12-week period, these hopefuls will live together in a New York City apartment and explore life while undergoing a series of creative challenges designed to test their professional modeling potential.
Beckford, who guest stars on Tyra Banks' wildly popular 'America's Next Top Model' this week, is one of the most respected and well-known male supermodels in the world.
Discovered and nurtured by fashion powerhouse Bethann Hardison, his modeling career exploded when he appeared in the Fall 1994 Polo Sport campaign. He soon landed an exclusive multi-year contract with Ralph Lauren and served as the spokesmodel, shilling everything from underwear, clothing and fragrances.
In June 2005, Beckford was injured in a car accident near his West New York, New Jersey home. His vehicle caught fire, but he was able to pull himself out before it became fully engulfed in flames.
On the comeback trail, he recently appeared in music videos including 50 Cent's chart topping '21 Questions,' and the Grammy Award-winning song 'Toxic' by Britney Spears.
He recently hosted the car show, Fine Tuned and will appear in the upcoming films 'Hotel California' and 'Kings of the Evening.'
