The unidentified teen, who no longer attends the community school, said he began his relationship...

    Embattled NAACP activist Rachel Dolezal was forced to make a sex tape by her ex-husband, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday, citing court papers. Dolezal made the accusation against ex-husband Kevin Moore during a divorce and custody battle for their son Franklin, the paper reported. She said the videotape was “made at request of the defendant which required the plaintiff to participate in sexual acts with the defendant on tape against the plaintiff’s desires,” according to court papers filed in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, where Moore still lives. Dolezal claimed she had suffered years of “physical, emotional, sexual and verbal abuse” at...

    Jeb Bush hasn't even officially launched his presidential campaign yet, and already there's a shakeup underway. In a surprise move, Bush has tapped veteran Republican strategist Danny Diaz to serve as his campaign manager, his political team announced on Monday. Diaz, 39, a longtime Republican operative known for his aggressive tactics and as a communications specialist, will move to Miami to take on a day-to-day managerial role after spending the last few months as a media consultant. The restructuring of Bush's staff was unexpected, given that Bush aides, donors and friends have said for months that David Kochel -- a...

While President Obama was occupied Thursday reading “mean tweets” about himself on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the First Lady was busy taping Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Before the spot deteriorated into a choreographed dance routine, Obama informed Ellen she was on set to promote more healthy living and issued a social media challenge. “We’re calling it GimmeFive and we’re using the hashtag #GimmeFive on social media,” Michelle said of the cause, which apparently includes dancing to coincide with regulated lunches.

Al Sharpton’s MSNBC program Politics Nation, on the air since 2011, is headed for the chopping block.

A lawsuit targeting Comcast and Sharpton last week, filed by the National Association of African-American Owned Media, alleges that both parties engaged in systematic discrimination against black-owned media outlets.
