A series of text messages sent to a private investigator appears to show George Zimmerman threatening Beyoncé over the recently premiered docuseries, Trayvon Martin: Rest in Power, produced by Jay-Z.
We all know who “stand your ground” laws protect, so perhaps it is not surprising that a 38-year-old black Selma, Ala., woman is behind bars and facing murder charges despite the fact that she insists she shot and killed her estranged husband in self-defense.
Florida’s Stand Your Ground law faced heavy scrutiny back in 2012 when George Zimmerman, a white-passing neighborhood watchman saw Trayvon Martin walking down the street minding his own business. Zimmerman deemed Trayvon scary and a “punk” and followed him. Their confrontation left Trayvon dead and his killer a free…

When you’re illustrating the complexities of racial prejudice in America, it is difficult to bridge the gap between understanding and skepticism in a populace pretending to listen with its arms folded, ready to dismiss any reasonable, salient point that demonstrates the existence of…
Remember Trayvon? He would’ve been 22 by now. He more than likely would have graduated from high school and entered college by this date. If he studied hard, maybe he would have entered an Ivy League school, graduated from Harvard and entered the spaceflight-training program during his downtime between law school…
Let’s be honest with each other. There’s way too much hateration in this dance soiree (yes, that is what Mary J. Blige was trying to sing to us). This land of the free and home of the brave that we’ve found ourselves living in is taking a turn for the worse. Like, Jennifer Holliday, who would obviously do anything for…
