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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Images of Taraji P. Henson's New Lifetime Movie, 'Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story,' have surfaced online.
Henson, an Academy Award nominee for her role in 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,' stars as the title character. Sean Baek, Drew Davis, Terry O' Quinn and Beverly Todd co-star in the film.
The film follows Rubin's 2008 rescue of her 7-year-old son Kobe. Kobe had been the subject of a custody dispute between Rubin and her ex-husband, a South Korea native. In the summer of 2007, after a visit to his father's Brooklyn apartment, Kobe was whisked away to South Korea.
With little help from the authorities and no money to hire a private investigator, Rubin, a public school teacher in Queens, turned to Mark Miller, founder of the American Association for Lost Children, a nonprofit. He located Kobe in a town near Seoul, and he and Rubin traveled there to launch a surveillance operation to chart Kobe's daily schedule. After a careful planning, one day Rubin went into her son's school and was able to snatch him. The two, along with Miller, ran to the U.S. Embassy before being able to return home safely.
'Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story' premieres Monday, Jan. 31 at 9 p.m.
