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.
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.
My name is Chanel and I collect a lot of stuff.
How far have we really come since Dr. King's passing in 1968? Could those who argue that we now live in a truly post-racial society be wearing the blinders of white privilege? Consider the following.
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?
Recently the New York Times published the latest in its series of sub-par articles on the current racial justice movement. Like its predecessors, this installment dutifully reinforces conventional wisdom that does not stand up to challenge.
In my estimation, it is appropriate, if not essential, that black athletes pass over the University of Michigan and take their talents to institutions that are committed to the worthy ideals of accountability and racial diversity and value black students as more than muscle and sinew.
Doing black history means more than just finding black people in the archives and stating whether they did or did not do something.

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.
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?

For more than a quarter century, Sachs, described by The New York Times as "probably the most important economist in the world," has advised governments around the globe on progressive policy.
