  Hot 97 and its listeners, received a dose of what a real magical Uptown Black girl is like, in the early part of December.

Ray Rice, Rewind, Not Televised

It made the cover of the New York Times. Ray Rice will not be indefinitely suspended by the NFL because he could not be punished for the same offense twice. That offense, being, punching his wife in the face, and knocking her unconscious. What’s the big deal? I mean really, what is the big deal? Is […]

The Sacred F-Word

I was really struck by Elizabeth Plank’s remark that the public shouldn’t attack celebrities who identify themselves as “feminists.” (http://mic.com/articles/100676/aziz-ansari-just-came-out-as-a-feminist-with-one-perfectly-simple-analogy).

Seeds Of Death – Gary Null – A Documentary on Monsanto & GMOs

Many have heard the term GMO and some have no idea the term exists. Of those that have heard the term very few actually know what they mean. GMO’s are Genetically Modified Organisms. Again knowing what the words mean does not mean they know what it is important to know their cause. GMO’s are created […]
