How is it that the sex tape clips, filmed at production-level quality, were released the same day the trailer detailing the event was already on Vh1's website and had been televised?
Dear ladies, although we've never met, mutual friends have attested to what nice people you are despite the less than flattering persona displayed on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Therefore, I was shocked to learn of the barbaric brawl you recently had on national television.
College is an exciting time, but it's also an expensive time. With the average debt for graduating seniors hovering around $29,000 (according to CNN), every incoming freshman should be taking a crash course in College Finances 101.
American discourse demands that no one notice that being white gives people unearned advantages. It is long past time to admit that dominant groups do not prevail because their members are so exemplary but because the system is set up to ensure that they win even when they are mediocre.
If you choose to forgo "Happy Birthday" for crooning about your "Magic Stick," you'd better be the guy in the Gandalf getup passing goodies out to the party-goers. You will NOT be "making it rain" around my girls unless you are a sprinkler technician.
To let many men tell it, they are experts at deciphering the intentions of women and wooing them towards a mutual attraction, but this confidence quickly disperses when it comes to discussion of sexual assault.
Lupita Nyong'o was crowned People's Most Beautiful this year. Here are the top 10 reasons she's so woman crush-worthy and inspirational.
Of course, the National Review has every right under the First Amendment to say all of these things, and I would defend to the death, in Voltaire's words, its right to say them. But that does not make them any less offensive -- or ignorant of the law.
It might seem odd to want to help those who have offended, injured or hurt others, but I'm persuaded that simply condemning and persecuting those who offend, those who fail, is not a healthy way forward.
A prosperous Nigeria would obviously be a huge win in the battle against poverty. Also, if Nigeria pushes past its hurdles and gets to where it could be, a blueprint will be lain for other African Nations to follow.
University admissions programs are not the place to promote partisan visions of social justice, but they are the place to produce the most dynamic and profound learning environments.
Ryan's comments last month reflect a political climate where Republicans not only do not meaningfully speak to African American citizens, but they tell themselves and their supporters stories about politics and economics that will ensure that they do not have to speak to African American voters in the future.
She's the self-proclaimed "drama queen" with sass and vocal power to boot. But KeKe Wyatt, star of TV One's hit reality series, R&B Divas: Atlanta sounds as if she is ready to tone down the drama, if only a tad bit.
Schuette is widely misunderstood as being a case about affirmative action. It is not. In fact, it leaves in place Supreme Court law recognizing diversity as a compelling governmental interest and permitting carefully constructed affirmative action programs.
Famed investor Warren Buffett once said, "The best investment you can make is in yourself." This statement holds great promise in helping to advance the state of retirement readiness for many Americans, especially today's 77 million millennials born between 1980 and 2000 -- most of whom are just embarking on their professional lives.
In the 1980s, we communicated via landlines and snail mail, we enjoyed our music on Walkmans and boomboxes, and we read books using... well, books. Much has changed in the past 30 years. Yet if you put a university president from 1986 next to a university president of today, you could hardly tell them apart.
The majority of those who deal and use crack cocaine and other drugs weren't violence-prone gang members, but poor and increasingly female, young blacks. They clearly needed treatment not long prison stretches.
With his recent Oscar nod for best director, Lee Daniels could wind up being a part of a distinguished group of Academy Award-winning directors, which is yet to have African American among its ranks.
With 'Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire,' Daniels has created a film that not only received six Oscar nominations but also made the Philadelphia native the first African American to land a Directors Guild of America Feature Film Award nomination, too.
Such a feat has never been accomplished by any other black director.
It's been quite a journey for Daniels who, on his first try as producer of 'Monster's Ball' in 2001, got Halle Berry an Academy Award for best actress.
He then went to produce the controversial film 'The Woodsman,' starring Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick and Mos Def.
Wearing a different hat, Daniels made his directorial debut in 2006 with the critically acclaimed 'Shadowboxer,' which starred Oscar winners Helen Mirren and Cuba Gooding, Jr., Stephen Dorff, Vanessa Ferlito, Mo'Nique, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Macy Gray.
Out of the gate with 'Precious,' Daniels has made history, as it is the only film to win the Audience Award from both the Sundance and Toronto film festivals in the same year.
In speaking exclusively with Black Voices, the visionary auteur spoke about the accolades, 'Precious' being a "black movie," and the Mo'Nique controversy.
