Monday night’s meeting between the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals began with both teams taking a knee prior to the singing of the national anthem. As the anthem began, both teams stood, arms linked in unity as Jordin Sparks began to sing.
As protests over the acquittal of former Police Officer Jason Stockley continued throughout the city of St. Louis, the Board of Aldermen on Friday voted unanimously to approve a resolution honoring the man he killed in 2011: Anthony Lamar Smith.
This week, Issa Rae said what we all thought and what we all do at any award ceremony: root for all the black people. And of course, after she said that, many non-black people lost their ever-loving minds, claiming Issa was perpetuating the same racism that proclaims that #BlackLivesMatter. *sigh* That’s not how…
We all laughed over the weekend when, in response to Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry saying that he didn’t want to go to the White House, Donald Trump responded with something akin to, “Yeah! Well, I disinvite you anyway!” It was yet another juvenile moment in a long line of juvenile moments this…

In a recent op-ed, author Howard Jacobson argues that satire is among the most potent forms of criticism. Writing about the recent play that recast Julius Caesar as a parody of Donald Trump, Jacobson wrote that “wounding the vainglorious is a pleasing pastime in itself and contributes to their demoralization.”
In a newly released documentary, two former members of Compton, Calif.’s police gang unit claim to reveal that a man named Orlando Anderson fired the bullets that killed rap icon Tupac Shakur.
1. I didn’t love the title, either. The substance of the piece itself was perfectly fine—to argue and debate that would be stupid (more on this later). It’s no different from conversations many of us have in any number of spaces we congregate when sober, perhaps not wrapped up in as neat a bow as Damon presented, but…
Samsung’s quantum dot-powered Q7 TV isn’t exactly easy on the bank account, but it would be a stunning upgrade to your home theater, and you can save $1000 on the 65" Q7F today, courtesy of MassDrop.
Shannon Sharpe, the Hall of Fame former NFL tight end-turned-the most woke sports analyst to ever to do it, is back at it again dropping straight gems. Sharpe wasn’t feeling the show of NFL locked-arm unity after President Donald Trump came out and declared that any player who protested during the national anthem…
According to the twisted logic of Donald J. Trump (the “J” stands for “jerks off to pee porn”), anyone who chooses to kneel during a rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” is disrespecting the flag, hates soldiers, and was born to and raised by a bitch. While it is understandable that some are protective of the…
Before Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson found Police Officer Jason Stockley not guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith, St. Louis activists and religious leaders warned that it could get ugly. They said they were going to “shut it down.”
The Little Rock Nine made history 60 years ago when they became the first black students to enroll in an all-white high school in Little Rock, Ark.
NASCAR has confirmed its lifelong reign as the No. 1 sport of white supremacists, beating out tiki-torch relay racing, white Twitter-finger thuggin’ and potato-sack hopping on Donald Trump’s nuts.
In what may be a classic case of CYCA (insert “child’s” into usual abbreviation), the parents of the young teen involved in what many call an attempted lynching in Claremont, N.H., have spoken out, saying that their son is innocent of racially taunting and trying to hang an 8-year-old boy from a tree.
Honestly, I’m glad “Bodak Yellow” is finally the No. 1 song in the country, because now maybe people will stop writing think pieces about it and the “greatness” that is Cardi B.
The American flag, drenched in the blood of American Indians and enslaved Africans, has been romanticized as a symbol of guardianship for all citizens of this nation. One of the main centerpieces of patriotism encapsulated in the flag’s meaning is military service. Be it the Revolutionary or Civil War, World War I or…
There are very few things I’d pay $5,500 for, mostly because I don’t have $5,500. But for one lucky(?) Third Reich stan, that was just enough to secure a piece of history: Adolf Hitler’s old linen boxers.
