Mizzou Students Divided Over President’s Resignation

0
COLUMBIA, Missouri -- Reactions of students at the University of Missouri are divided after a week of demonstrations culminated in the resignation of president Tim Wolfe. Wolfe’s failure to address racial issues on campus over the past few months prompted students, faculty and lawmakers to call for his ouster. Monday morning, Wolfe acquiesced, saying he was resigning “out of love” for the Mizzou students. The atmosphere across the campus on Monday was split between those who supported the activists who pushed for acknowledgement of -- and remedies to -- racial tension on campus, and those who disagreed with why the Wolfe had to resign in the first place. Brandon Weston, a 21-year-old a nursing major who has been at Mizzou since 2013, says some ...

Congratulations To Serena Williams On An Absolutely Historic Run

0
Over this past year, Serena Williams has given us everything. She's been a four-time Grand Slam winner and a consummate champion, but more importantly, she's been herself. As a 33-year-old black woman boasting a powerful build and bravery in how she expresses herself, she's naturally been burdended with criticism about the integrity of her matches, her ;body ;and ;even ;her smile. But through it all, ;all she did was win. She won at the U.S. Open in 2014. ; And at the Australian Open in ;2015. Then she won the French Open. ; And topped it off with a Wimbledon victory. ; At around that point, all of the winning was getting downright silly. Trophies became just another thing. ; ; Before ...

As history shows, racial injustice in America and the fight to resolve it has been a long, rigorous battle -- and it is one still being fought today. Generations of activists have been fueled by the fight against the systemic and social inequality -- as well as blatant forms of racism -- that has gripped America and crippled black communities for decades. This racial bias, many civil rights activists believe, was the underlying cause of unfortunate circumstances in black history -- yet it prompted protests that marked some of the most historic moments of the civil rights movement. For these protesters, black lives have always mattered -- but the effort to bridge America's racial divide has mobilized a renewed movement, most recently reignited by police killings of ...

Are You a Travel Snob? Let’s Discuss Travel Elitism and Shade

0
Just because you've travelled far and wide, doesn't mean you have to be a jerk about it. Repeat after me: travel doesn't make you better, more cultured, or more elite than anyone else. I DESPISE travel snobbery, and as more people become "about that travel life" I've seen lots more shade being thrown at those who either don't travel, don't travel extensively, or aren't "hardcore" enough in their travels (particularly in the African-American travel community, but that may be because that's the one I'm most tapped into). So, in my new video, I tell those offenders to get over themselves (nicely). Have you ever encountered elitist or snobby attitudes towards the way ...
