You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.
We know that heterosexism is real and that white gay men, especially gender non-conforming men, experience antagonism, and, yet, we should be clear not to minimize the reality of white patriarchy and the advantages daily afforded to white men, regardless of their sexual identities. Privilege much?
Let's be honest, America is having a credit card debt crisis. We, as a nation, are $11.4 trillion in debt to credit card companies. Luckily, there is a very easy solution to stop paying all of that interest to the credit card companies, and it comes from the most unlikely source ... the credit card companies.
To say that a teacher's race is of no importance -- especially in schools where most of the kids are black or Latino -- is to pretend that education in the U.S. exists in a post-racial dreamworld.
As a young adult, it is normal for people my age to believe themselves invincible. I know this to be untrue, but I often forget this fact. With Eric Garner's death, I am reminded that black men are certainly not invincible, rather, they are endangered.
It's important to note how social media campaigns have helped to highlight the issue reminding everyone of how important the early years in the development of the brains of young people.
Once again those families and communities that have long been and continue to be subject to discriminatory (and often predatory) behavior, pay a high price. But so do many who have not traditionally been victimized by these practices.
These conversations were always awkward for me and never satisfying.
A poor credit score can hurt your chances of success, whether you're looking for private student loans or shopping for your next set of wheels. But if your credit score is already in the 600's or below, there's good news: you can fix bad credit.
Tonight on PBS, I'm joined by Rubén Blades. The 10-time Grammy winner, Harvard law school grad and former presidential candidate in Panama reflects on his varied career and talks about his new CD, Tangos.
Just like a coach sees the difference in her players if they spent the summer lounging instead of being active, I certainly see a literary sluggishness in my students if they return to school in the fall without picking up a book or writing in their journals with true engagement.
Hepatitis C infection is a major public health concern for people of all races. To help increase Hepatitis C awareness, testing and access to treatment for individuals infected with the virus, we recognize National African American Hepatitis C Action Day (NAAHCAD) on Friday, July 25.
Here we are 50 years later, and if you're a woman of color, then you're still facing inequality in the workplace. According to a recent study, black women are making far less than their white, non-Hispanic male counterparts in the same jobs and positions.
The sheer number of retirement accounts can make anyone's head spin. Once you've opened a specific type of account -- for instance a traditional 401(k) -- it's tempting to just figure you're set. But with more and more employers now offering a Roth 401(k) as well, it's smart to take a step back and consider the potential benefits of each.
As co-chair of the new State Medicaid Expansion Caucus, I look forward to leading an ongoing dialogue on the how important expanding Medicaid is for my state, Georgia, and the entire country.
Privacy is key to having a healthy space. The girls that we work with tell us that they need something that belongs to them where they could do what they want and need to do to better themselves.
For Jennifer Hamilton it wasn't enough to be the only one wishing her husband a happy birthday. She decided to try and get the whole world to say it along with her.
If there was ever a contrast in the way two separate and seemingly removed from each other police abuse cases were handled, the New York Police Department and the California Highway Patrol cases fit the bill.
Controversy continues around celebrity biographer Kitty Kelley's newly released 'Oprah: A Biography," which documents the life of celebrated media maven Oprah Winfrey.
Last week, Bill O'Reilly confronted Kelley on his Fox News talk show, 'The O'Reilly Factor,' saying he never had a phone call with Winfrey, like the tome suggests.
During her press run to promote the unauthorized biography, the 68-year-old author said that Winfrey's cousin, Katherine Carr Esters, whom Oprah calls Aunt Katherine, told her the details of Winfrey's paternity, but Kelley chose not to include the name of Winfrey's biological father in the book. Instead, she vowed to personally share the name with Winfrey herself.
Now, Esters is claiming that she did not reveal details of Winfrey's paternity to Kelley. And the best-selling author is not taking the news sitting down.
Esters told Mississippi newspaper The Clarion Ledger that if she was able to talk to Winfrey, she would say, "Kitty Kelley misquoted me when she said I told her who your father was. How could I know? That's all I'd want to tell her."
Esters, 82, is remorseful that she participated in an interview with Kelley for the controversial tell-all.
"I'm sorry this book, portraying her falsely, was ever written and that I participated in answering questions," she added.
Kelley has said that Esters was one of the most revealing of the 800-plus subjects interviewed for the 525-page book. She stands by her work and took to her blog to defend the validity of the biography.
In addition to saying she is "not surprised, but disappointed" in Esters's claims, Kelley infers that "she may have come under some pressure" to recant their earlier conversations.
"I will have my representatives contact Ms. Esters to formally request that she release me from my promise to her not to reveal the identity of Ms. Winfrey's father, which she shared with me in her home on July 30, 2007," she said.
"Ms. Esters was both forthcoming and candid in sharing with me her conflicted feelings about Oprah and in revealing to me the identity of Oprah's biological father."
Kelley recounted that her conversations with Esters spanned three days, from July 30 until Aug. 1 of 2007, in-person at Esters' Mississippi home and subsequently on the phone, on Aug. 7-Oct.9 , 2007 and Feb.5, 2008.
She posted a picture of the two women from their time together and furthers that they "maintained a written correspondence" and that Esters supplied her with four of the photos she used for the final book.
Kelley added, "If Ms. Esters agrees, I will write a personal letter to Oprah Winfrey and share with her all the information which Ms. Esters gave to me."
Winfrey's spokeswoman, Angela DePaul, said that Winfrey "hasn't spoken with her [Esters]."
On Monday, Winfrey made her first public comments about the book while presenting an award to her best friend, Gayle King, in New York.
"Last week was a rough week for Gayle, when a so-called biography came out," Winfrey said in front of a well-heeled crowd at the the New York Women in Communications' annual Matrix Awards
"Every day she's getting herself more and more worked up about all of my new daddies that are now showing up. New daddies who are saying, 'Hello, daughter, call me, I need a new roof.' Well, this too shall pass."
