We have all bought into a social construct that permits us to feel good about perpetrating a fraud. Corporations, universities, government agencies, minorities and "good white folks" alike -- we are all complicit in pimping diversity.
I needed, not wanted clothes because having lost 220 pounds since 10/2011 and 150 pounds since 8/2012, not even a belt would cinch up my pants and my underwear was too big. So I started shopping for myself.
Is this what rehabilitation looks, feels, and smells like?
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.
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.
I try to be a gracious, well-mannered dinner guest, and a good listener; or so I'm told. It's what I reflect about over the dinner that may give people indigestion and pause. As acquaintances and friends sometimes ask me: "Eric, why do you often steer dinner discussions toward issues of racism?"
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.
With the President making historic strides in launching My Brother's Keeper and, together with Congress, passing the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act there is no better time than now to make a focus on jobs real throughout the country.

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.
This month marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The law is often recognized as a repudiation of racial segregation in the southern states. But this common association overlooks the reality of discrimination in public accommodations in the North, including in America's largest city.
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.
We made a decision as a couple that for us to thrive as a family we had to learn how to embrace change. We never complained to our children about daddy's dialysis treatments and schedule because we chose to embrace it.
Ultimately, the jurors will be the judges of the facts and what is reasonable. However, where race and gender clash, the black woman usually ends up on the short end of the deal.
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.
It's often been said that you can't buy magic in a bottle, especially when it comes to hair growth.
Or can you?
Search across the web for 'thin hair' or 'hair loss' and you will undoubtedly come across an ad or two or three for hair pills. Everyone wants hair. Blacks, whites, men, women. It's a difficult and often stressful dilemma over which you have very little control. You can weave it all you want but at the end of day don't we all want our own hair? Unless you're my best friend who contends she will be buried in her weave.
When I removed my own weave almost four years ago you should have seen my hair. It was limp, brittle and broken. It reached my shoulders – barely – but it wasn't anything to be proud. In fact, I was often self-conscious standing in line at the grocery store because I was sure the person behind me was thinking, 'just cut it off girl.' Either that, or wondering if they bought everything on their grocery list.
Anyhow, that's when I decided to take action.
In addition to bunning up my hair I purchased a bottle of Ultra NourishHair pills from the health store GNC. It contains over a thousand micrograms of Biotin. It seemed enough to do the trick. I followed the instructions and took two tablets daily. This was never fun. It was like these things were made for horses, they were so big. I remained patient and loyal for three months (I try to give every product three months before I rule it out). Friends began complimenting me on my growth campaign around month two so I was encouraged to keep taking them. I had to sacrifice my morning coffee and evening dessert after reading online that sugar and caffeine counteract the ingredients in hair pills. Needless to say, I was quite irritable during this whole experiment.
I'm no doctor so who's to say it wasn't my improved diet that accelerated my hair growth? I imagine everyone's experience is different. I can only share with you my story. Now I'm curious to hear yours. Let me know if you've ever taken hair pills, which brand you used and share your results in the Comments section.
