Whether or not Darren Wilson is indicted for his behavior in those 90 seconds, American society as a whole bears indictment for those four hours and thirty-two minutes. That level of disregard for black life cannot be attributed to the actions of one police officer.
The focus of our strategy should not be on what we do or do not do with our military. The principal focus of our "fight" should be on getting the countries in the Middle East, like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan, Bahrain, etc., to make the defeat of ISIS their responsibility.
My heart belongs to the ladies on 14th Street who stood with me night after night, trying to survive and just be their authentic selves. I cry today for those ladies who are no longer here with us in 2014, but my heart remembers them.

Keeping control of overall debt is an important part of financial planning no matter what your stage of life. But a flat statement about eliminating all debt in retirement may be too simplistic. That's because the amount of debt you can comfortably handle is very individual and depends on your bigger financial picture.

In declaring a state of emergency in Missouri before any actual announcement by the Ferguson grand jury, Gov. Jay Nixon is shedding a valuable light on what happens when a culture of fearful white supremacy can't tolerate dissent, disorder, or difference.
I discovered that I had been living a life according to what other's believed was the norm. I learned that every experience is part of the journey and realized that my journey was my life's purpose.
Our daughters will learn from us how to value themselves. Whether we like it or not, we are responsible for what they are exposed to and what they hold up as values while they are young.
For the second time in two months, Governor Jay Nixon of Missouri approved the execution of an African American man sentenced to die by an all-white jury. But Missouri and this governor have absolutely no moral authority to execute anyone.

Despite our good intentions, Christianity in the United States still has a long way to go. Instead of seeking to heal the wounds of slavery and institutionalized racial discrimination, many denominations are seeking out fresh ways of shaming and condemning their LGBTQ members.
Feminism has become the word du jour. But what's its message? Its goals? Why is it so divisive?
As it turns out, there are lots of good guys out there, hiding in plain sight. Here's how to spot them.
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.
