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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Another singer/songwriter has expressed his disdain with Michael Jackson's posthumous album, 'Michael,' which came out last week.
Ne-Yo was out and about in New York City this weekend and wasn't shy about sharing his thought's on the new release.
"If Michael was still alive ... I don't think the album would be out yet," the Grammy Award winner told TMZ.com.
He told TMZ that he was not interested in listening to the new album because his idol was a perfectionist and he'd prefer to "stick to my old Mike."
Before the King of Pop died, Ne-Yo had been contacted by Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am. to collaborate on Jackson's new album. The 'So Sick' singer has previously written tracks for Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Rihanna, Celine Dion and Ciara, to name a few. He previously performed a tribute to the 'Thriller' hitmaker at the 2009 BET Awards just days after Jackson's passing.
Ne-Yo previously said that he hoped Jackson's family would do a compilation or tribute album with the songs that he wrote, which Jackson hand-picked to appear on his next album. The Def Jam crooner has vowed not to release them or try to give the songs to anyone else because "they were written for Michael [and] that would be disrespectful."
This news comes on the heels of Will.i.am's interview with Rolling Stone magazine, where he told the magazine that the idea of putting out the ten previously unreleased tracks "disgusts" him.
"I knew this man," he said. "And he was very critical about every single detail. He stood in the studio himself, mastering and mixing everything. How can you release a record without that Michael Jackson? It's not Michael Jackson."
Meanwhile, 'Michael' producer Teddy Riley, who produced Jackson's 1990s megahits 'Remember the Time' and 'Jam,' was brought in to enhance Jackson's vocals on certain tracks from the new album.
The former Guy singer told MTV News, "This feels like Michael, this feels like the spirit of Michael."
'Michael' is in stores now.
