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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
These conversations were always awkward for me and never satisfying.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

It is time we work together to solve this pervasive national problem, and develop ways every city in our country can effectively combat gun violence.
Is this what rehabilitation looks, feels, and smells like?
We have all bought into a social construct that permits us to feel good about perpetrating a fraud. Corporations, universities, government agencies, minorities and "good white folks" alike -- we are all complicit in pimping diversity.
Since last fall's tragic death of her fiancé A.J. Jewell, 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Kandi Burruss has been taking her time before getting involved with a new significant other.
But, on the season premiere of 'Housewives' viewers get an inside look at the new man in her life.
Willis McGahee is a running back for the Baltimore Ravens. Though the 28 year-old is no longer the NFL team's starting running back, last year he ended the season with his best career statistics, including second most touchdowns in the league with 14.
But, in addition to balancing his hectic professional football career, McGahee is working hard at winning over the 34-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter on the new season of the top-rated Bravo reality series.
In the first episode of the new season of 'Housewives,' Burruss reveals to her cast mate Kim Zolciak that the Miami native flew to Atlanta to meet her. The couple is later seen rock climbing in another scene of the season three premiere.
She admitted that the Pro Bowler and Heisman Trophy finalist was "good looking, a cool guy, and fun," but she expressed her doubt in any serious relationship with McGahee saying "he is in the NFL and athletes are used to girls flocking to them and I'm used to guys flocking to me. Plus, I don't like long distance relationships."
McGahee is slated to earn over $40 million through his seven-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, but with more money comes more problems.
Off the field, the University of Miami graduate has had a lot of drama with several child support cases. He has three children with three different women. And, is rumored to currently have a live-in girlfriend and another newborn child.
In 2005, two school teachers filed paternity suits against him claiming he fathered their boys. Keisha Walls gave birth to a boy, Kai Walls on April 19, 2006 and Chiniqua Smith gave birth to a boy, Willis McGahee IV, on Jan.6, 2006. The third woman, Dorothy Doretha McNeil previously sued McGahee in 2005 saying he fathered her daughter, Bria McGahee, born Jan. 17, 2005.
He was ruled the biological father – and has since paid child support – for McNeil's daughter and Smith's son. But, it is still unclear whether he is the father of Walls' child. Oddly enough she was married when she hooked up with McGahee, who she says she's been seeing on and off since 2003. It has not been publicly confirmed if McGahee is the father in the third case.
Still, McGahee and Burruss seem to be open to the idea of taking things further even though she proclaimed their current relationship is "nothing too serious."
Cameras show the two on their date discussing the idea of having sex. The Atlanta native tells McGahee that she made a bet with a friend that she could be celibate for one year. To which, he asks "Is oral sex eliminated?" and she said, "No." And he replied, "That's cool" with a sly smile.
Burruss vows to taker her time getting to know the next man who she likes before taking it one step further and having sex.
