You can make a statement with these knots any day of the week or simply use them to look elegant and stylish during those special events where you really need to stand out. Either way, you'll practically be a forefather of men's fashion no matter which style you choose.
There is no place any longer, either in the NFL or the nation at large, for the injustices and hypocrisies of prohibitionist marijuana policies. It's time for the NFL to be a leader and create a rational and science-based marijuana policy.
Ever notice how hard it is to find blacks bottoming for whites in interracial porn? With few exceptions, porn studios seem to think there is only one acceptable way to show interracial sex: The hyperaggressive African-American top and the submissive white bottom. Is gay porn racist?
My name is Chanel and I collect a lot of stuff.
We have only a few days before Mr. Hill enters the death chamber. His execution will mock the Constitution and our common decency unless the courts intervene, now.
True, social justice and political activism can help solve many of the continuous problems facing our community, but what about economic growth and stability to help heal our struggling neighborhoods?
We should be concerned about the impact of Hollywood's continual whitewashing on the collective psychology of people of color and it should be of concern for any educated person who wants to have an accurate understanding of history.
Banks lived on Chicago's South Side. He often commuted to Cubs home games on the L train. He had no choice. Though he was the biggest name and biggest draw the Cubs had, he could not buy a home or rent an apartment in the neighborhood surrounding Wrigley Field.
The national holiday celebrating Dr. King's birthday is over, but I hope we will heed and act on his 1967 declaration and work to win the first victory right here at home in the biggest economy on earth and end the shame of 14.7 million children being the poorest Americans by ending child poverty now.
Doing black history means more than just finding black people in the archives and stating whether they did or did not do something.
In 1960 Ruby Bridges was one of six kids to integrate a public school in New Orleans. Norman Rockwell commemorated the civil rights moment with a painting that graced the cover of Look Magazine in 1964.
As Islamic fundamentalists encroach on the basic liberties of people in Africa and the Arab world, we hear about it, but it's hard to put it into context and understand the magnitude of the situation. Leave it to veteran, Mauritanian filmmaker Abderrahmane Sissako to boil a complicated social phenomena down to a simple allegorical tale.
New York City has extraordinarily segregated neighborhoods and radically unequal educational opportunities for its black children. Segregated housing patterns ensure that most black students attend poorly resourced public schools, while schools in predominantly white, wealthy neighborhoods have the resources to help children succeed.
For two decades, the Screen Actors Guild has been highlighting its members' best performances. The annual gala isn't as white as the 2015 Oscar nominees, but it's pretty close. Some say the lack of meaningful roles or developed character arcs -- especially for Asians, Latinos and African Americans -- contributed to their perpetual absence in the winners' circle. Others point to audiences' intolerance for non-white central characters. At the 2015 SAG awards, Viola Davis became the third actor of colour to ever take home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a TV Drama.
No one who has ever come out as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender to their family, particularly their parents, will ever forget that life-altering moment. Sometimes the connective thread will be cut; other times that bond will be deepened, enriched by this new reality.
Every census report in the post-Civil Rights Movement era, and the countless Urban League's State of Black America reports show that the inner cities continue to get blacker and browner and poorer, while the suburbs got whiter and wealthier. That trend isn't likely to change.
I started saying that it's taken 7 years for us to see success, but then I found a flaw in that statement. I've actually been successful even during the tough times. It's all about how you define success. For me, I've decided to define success based on daily wins. I've had many of them and I've learned many lesson.
Do Mitt Romney or Jeb Bush have the Reagan-Obama swag that can waltz through the party of those multiple responses to SOTU last night? Or do they look more like the former Massachusetts Governor -- Dukakis?
TV One has set a date for actress LisaRaye McCoy's upcoming reality show, 'LisaRaye: The Real McCoy.'
The eight-episode series is set to premiere April 8 at 9 p.m. EST.
As previously reported, the new show will follow the Chicago native as she raises her 19 year-old daughter Kai and provides advice to her incarcerated sister, platinum-selling rapper Da Brat – all while taking care of her ailing mother.
It's been 12 years since the 41 year-old made her feature film debut as Diamond in 'The Players Club.'
A trailer for her docu-drama shows the former 'All of Us' star meeting with acting coaches to work on her career, not to mention making time for some of her big-name friends like Jamie Foxx, Lil' Jon and the Rev. Al Sharpton, with whom she's been romantically linked.
McCoy prides herself on keeping it real is definitely doing just that in her new show.
"I cannot watch the news because it hurts my feelings," she stated. A trailer for the show finds McCoy questioning her daughter Kai about whether she used a condom, bungee jumping with her cousin/assistant Quincy, and on numerous photo shoots with stylist Joe Exclusive.
In another exclusive interview with Jaime Foster Brown, McCoy shared her frustration with her estranged husband Michael Misick, the former Premiere of Turks and Caicos.
"I'm mad because I never ran government in Turks and Caicos," she said. "I get married to become a first lady and that was not a part of my plan and I damn sure didn't want to be involved with anybody that was going to be a part of any type corruption at all at no type of level. I could have stayed right here where I'm from in the States to do that."
"What I put aside meaning my career to come help this small country bring awareness to tourism there, they don't sell coffee and they don't sell sugar, meaning they only rely on tourism to make money there, I did that and I did that well," she continued.
"So for me to be going through what I'm going through just to get my money out of this settlement and being ridiculed the way that I am. It makes me mad that I'm fighting for something that I don't have anything to do with. We agreed that we don't belong together. Let me get back to what I do and do what all you wanna do and do what you've been doing," she charged.
There's sure to be more of the no-holds-barred conversations on 'LisaRaye: The Real McCoy,' when it airs this spring..
