You can make a statement with these knots any day of the week or simply use them to look elegant and stylish during those special events where you really need to stand out. Either way, you'll practically be a forefather of men's fashion no matter which style you choose.
There is no place any longer, either in the NFL or the nation at large, for the injustices and hypocrisies of prohibitionist marijuana policies. It's time for the NFL to be a leader and create a rational and science-based marijuana policy.
Ever notice how hard it is to find blacks bottoming for whites in interracial porn? With few exceptions, porn studios seem to think there is only one acceptable way to show interracial sex: The hyperaggressive African-American top and the submissive white bottom. Is gay porn racist?
My name is Chanel and I collect a lot of stuff.
We have only a few days before Mr. Hill enters the death chamber. His execution will mock the Constitution and our common decency unless the courts intervene, now.
True, social justice and political activism can help solve many of the continuous problems facing our community, but what about economic growth and stability to help heal our struggling neighborhoods?
We should be concerned about the impact of Hollywood's continual whitewashing on the collective psychology of people of color and it should be of concern for any educated person who wants to have an accurate understanding of history.
Banks lived on Chicago's South Side. He often commuted to Cubs home games on the L train. He had no choice. Though he was the biggest name and biggest draw the Cubs had, he could not buy a home or rent an apartment in the neighborhood surrounding Wrigley Field.
The national holiday celebrating Dr. King's birthday is over, but I hope we will heed and act on his 1967 declaration and work to win the first victory right here at home in the biggest economy on earth and end the shame of 14.7 million children being the poorest Americans by ending child poverty now.
Doing black history means more than just finding black people in the archives and stating whether they did or did not do something.
In 1960 Ruby Bridges was one of six kids to integrate a public school in New Orleans. Norman Rockwell commemorated the civil rights moment with a painting that graced the cover of Look Magazine in 1964.
As Islamic fundamentalists encroach on the basic liberties of people in Africa and the Arab world, we hear about it, but it's hard to put it into context and understand the magnitude of the situation. Leave it to veteran, Mauritanian filmmaker Abderrahmane Sissako to boil a complicated social phenomena down to a simple allegorical tale.
New York City has extraordinarily segregated neighborhoods and radically unequal educational opportunities for its black children. Segregated housing patterns ensure that most black students attend poorly resourced public schools, while schools in predominantly white, wealthy neighborhoods have the resources to help children succeed.
For two decades, the Screen Actors Guild has been highlighting its members' best performances. The annual gala isn't as white as the 2015 Oscar nominees, but it's pretty close. Some say the lack of meaningful roles or developed character arcs -- especially for Asians, Latinos and African Americans -- contributed to their perpetual absence in the winners' circle. Others point to audiences' intolerance for non-white central characters. At the 2015 SAG awards, Viola Davis became the third actor of colour to ever take home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a TV Drama.
No one who has ever come out as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender to their family, particularly their parents, will ever forget that life-altering moment. Sometimes the connective thread will be cut; other times that bond will be deepened, enriched by this new reality.
Every census report in the post-Civil Rights Movement era, and the countless Urban League's State of Black America reports show that the inner cities continue to get blacker and browner and poorer, while the suburbs got whiter and wealthier. That trend isn't likely to change.
I started saying that it's taken 7 years for us to see success, but then I found a flaw in that statement. I've actually been successful even during the tough times. It's all about how you define success. For me, I've decided to define success based on daily wins. I've had many of them and I've learned many lesson.
Do Mitt Romney or Jeb Bush have the Reagan-Obama swag that can waltz through the party of those multiple responses to SOTU last night? Or do they look more like the former Massachusetts Governor -- Dukakis?
Boris Kodjoe has been cast in the ABC pilot 'Georgetown,' an ensemble drama about young staffers on Capitol Hill.
The hour-long project, written by Will Fetters, is described as a sexy soap centered around the young people behind the power brokers of Washington, D.C. It centers on Andrew Pierce (played by Jimmy Wolk), an effortlessly charming and brilliant Yale graduate and the youngest presidential speech writer on record who was once idealistic but is now cynical as he sees how compromise has eroded the administration's promise.
Kodjoe will play the Democratic president's fiercely intelligent senior adviser, stated Deadline.com.
Kodjoe's last TV series, the J.J Abrams' NBC spy drama 'Undercovers,' which paired him with Gugu Mbatha-Raw, was canceled in 2010 after low ratings. Only 11 of 13 episodes aired.
Also cast in 'Georgetown' are Katie Cassidy, who will play Nikki, a smart and quick-witted junior staffer in the White House Communications Office with connections to the first lady; and Daisy Betts, who will play Samantha, an idealistic young staffer with the Democratic president, and daughter of a political dynasty who shares a romantic history with Andrew. Joe Mazzello, who was recently featured in 'The Social Network,' plays Peter, another junior White House staffer who lives with his best friends, Andrew, Nikki and Sam, while Condola Rashad, daughter of Phylicia Rashad and Ahmad Rashad, is an ambitious lesbian journalist reluctantly working the style segment of Website politicalcapitol.com when she'd rather be covering harder news. Kevin Zegers will play Monty, an incredibly wealthy stockbroker from a well-connected family and an old rival of Andrew's, who has just proposed to an ex girlfriend of Andrew's. Wendy Crewson is Senator Caroline Wallace, the GOP minority leader.
This is the third TV series Kodjoe will be in. For five seasons (2000-2004), the Austrian native and former fashion model played courier-turned-sports agent Damon Carter on the Showtime television drama series 'Soul Food,' opposite his wife, Nicole Ari Parker.
Parker will also be returning to television in the A&E hour-long pilot 'Big Mike,' which stars Greg Grunberg as a plus-size detective with the San Diego Police Department. Parker will play lieutenant Grace Peterson, Mike's boss.
