TS Madison has become really popular over the past year. She is a YouTube sensation who recently got her own show on YouTube via World of Wonder. Madison just dropped her first album, so I thought it would be a perfect time for her to be asked "15 Questions."
Feminism has become the word du jour. But what's its message? Its goals? Why is it so divisive?
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.
Wilson will likely skip away scot-free and if he does it won't be because of police clamor for him or a biased prosecutor. It will be because of the bias of the jurors that make up a deeply flawed grand jury system.
As we honor our friends and family we have lost to anti-transgender violence on Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), how can we ensure that transgender women of color are leading the LGBTQ anti-violence movement?
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.
Black, Asian and Latina women combined barely make up 1 percent of the total number of persons in top positions. White women comprise 14 percent.
The human mind doesn't always work in our best interests when it comes to spending decisions. But the good news is that scientists are trying to tackle the problem -- and uncover how we can retrain our brains to make better choices.
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.
In May 2004, comedian, social critic and philanthropist Bill Cosby took the stage at Constitution Hall in his hometown of Philadelphia. It was a gala commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Brown decision on school segregation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We are asking courageous New York City Council members to exercise their oversight power by passing the Right to Know Act, which would strengthen police accountability and transparency by requiring officers who stop us to identify themselves.
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.
If Styles ends up being straight, the implications of his recent statements would be practically revolutionary. At his age, following the "bro" code typically means acting as straight and narrow as possible. How many straight guys are comfortable with being mistaken for gay or bisexual?
So I'm back in the office today after an entire week off, most of which, I spent at the beach in Florida with my parents. One of the first emails I saw when I signed on today was from a co-worker about "updated" crocs. Which is really random yet totally appropriate since EVERYONE was wearing crocs in Florida. Grandparents all the way down to brand new babies had on a pair in every color of the rainbow.
I actually own a pair of the updated crocs my co-worker recommended ... I use them as my rain shoes. I never actually wear them as a complement to an outfit. Yet, there are thousands of people who do. And I hope I don't offend my co-worker by saying this, but after this past week, I am of the opinion that I hate crocs AND the people who wear them. They look like gnome shoes. Get some flip flops and call it a day and PLEASE if you insist on wearing the "croc" please don't wear them to dinner ... at a nice restaurant. Really? There is even a blog out there dedicated to the hatred of crocs (one of my new favorite blogs ps).
I have found reports that Chris Rock is a fan, though I've never seen him in a pair. I cannot imagine he would wear these for any other reason than a joke but who knows. Cam'ron (see slide 4) might start rocking a pink pair soon for all I know. And then what's next? Rhianna in Sperry Topsiders? God help us all.
