He played for the St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers during a three-year NFL career. Phillips is serving a sentence of ...

Natural Hair In Review, 2015: Weave (Glue and Tracks), Creamy Crack and Wigs Are...

Sometimes I can't believe that I live in a reality where I felt the need to develop a website entitled Natural Is Cool Enough (N.I.C.E.) in an effort to be a part of what has come to be known as a natural hair movement. The fact that Black women are/were gluing and sewing hair into their scalps for a Eurocentric appearance is sadly understandable, given the history of slavery and ongoing racism that Black people experience for which the outcome of such is self-hatred. The weave, creamy crack and wig situation has become so extreme and intense...

Here Are Our Ideal Oscar Ballots (Listen Up, Academy Members!)

Oscar voting is underway right now. That means the clock is winding down for studios campaigning to squeeze their darlings into the race before nominations are announced on Jan. 15.

What Happens When Moms Go To Prison

Florida Cops Fired Over Racist Texts, KKK Video

Four Florida cops lost their jobs Friday after racist texts and an "inexcusable" video surfaced, their chief said. A five-month internal investigation led to three of them being fired, and one of them resigning, according to NBC Miami. The officers reportedly sent a trailer-style video amongst themselves containing a Ku Klux Klan hood, attacks against minorities, derogatory images of President Obama and racist comments about Hispanics and homosexuals. "I had a wet dream that you two found those n-----s in the VW and gave them the death penalty right there on the spot," one of the texts reads...

Garner’s Legacy Can Only Be Grand Jury and Prosecutorial Reform

"I can't breathe." Eric Garner's death cannot be in vain. More so than even the Ferguson Grand Jury verdict, the videotaped killing of Mr. Garner must spur wholescale reform in addressing the use of police abuse and excessive force in our broken criminal justice system. But it all starts with the office of the prosecutor. The role of the prosecutor in America is a powerful one perhaps unequaled in both power and envy. They execute their duties with almost unbridled discretion and their decisions to charge or not are exercised with virtually no immediate accountability save the ballot box. Since the days of Robert Kennedy as U.S. Attorney General, it appears all elected officials run campaigns as if they were running for the DA's...
