On Wednesday night, the Board of Trustees will discuss the process of considering the petitions and will hear a presentation on the potential costs to change the districts name on signs and other materials. The Superintendent estimates...

    The New York Times ^ | January 6, 2019 | By Reniqua Allen
    When I was younger, I wanted to be like Khadijah James when I grew up. She had a really black-sounding name like mine, ran her own magazine business, was not too girlie, remained down for the people, achieved what she wanted, was loyal to her friends and had a fine man. She was also fictional. But that just made it better: The actress who played her on Living Single, Dana Owens, better known as Queen Latifah, was from New Jersey just like me. Today I laugh at my early-90s notion of making it. Yet, at its core, it never...

    ... Four black coaches were fired Sunday or Monday, including the Jets Todd Bowles, who was let go shortly after his teams final loss Sunday. The Jets had a 14-34 record in the last three seasons under Bowles. Marvin Lewis, who had been at the helm of the Cincinnati Bengals since 2003, was fired Monday. Though he had resurrected the moribund Bengals and took them to the playoffs multiple times, he never won a playoff game and this season was Cincinnatis third consecutive one with a losing record. Also fired Monday was Denver Broncos Coach Vance Joseph, who had presided...

    ... In cities like Boston, New York and Chicago, high-quality retailers often avoid majority-black neighborhoods. In segregated cities like Detroit, some residents say that trying to find something as basic as a Gap can feel impossible. Without mainstream stores, many customers in urban black neighborhoods are left to shop at low-quality and exploitative outlets that fleece their patrons during the holidays. I saw this for myself when I walked into a holiday sale at Rent-A-Center in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Oversize flat-screen TVs lined the walls and overstuffed couches filled the floors. The large No Credit Needed sign on the window made...

    In Tuesdays episode of social justice gone awry, Harvard Business Review complained about the lack of diversity in the firefighting business. U.S. firefighters are overwhelmingly white and male. Heres why that needs to change, the publication said in a Tweet linking a to story. Harvard Business Review is complaining that only white men are interested in risking life and limb in service to their community. Of course, they did not frame their story that way because, as we know, white men are the devil in this culture war. Many fire departments recognize that their lack of diversity as a problem...

    Theres an interesting story out therea white male Columbia University student joyfully exclaimed his love for white people on a viral video shown on Twitter. Europeans built the modern world, he said.. We invented science and industry and you want to tell us to stop because, Oh my God, were so bad. We invented the modern world. The student, later identified as Julian von Abele, a sophomore at the school, appeared a bit toasted, to use a word known to college students everywhere. If he was, maybe it helped him get up the courage to tell the un-tellable truth in...

    Kevin Hart is out as the host of the 2019 Oscars just a few days after he was in. Thats how it goes, these days. The internet giveth and the internet taketh away. Hart - an accomplished, veteran comedian - was forced to step down after refusing to apologize for homophobic tweets from some seven years ago. The celebrity class is largely silent. Everyone knows theyre on record saying something that their own outrage mobs would find untenable. No one wants to get caught in the tempest of their own making. But Harts displacement isnt just about being forced to...

    T.M. Landry College Preparatory School in Lousiana made headlines with a series of viral videos showing their students reacting to news that theyd been accepted to Ivy League Universities. But a new report from The New York Times has exposed the dark underbelly of the school that once boasted a 100-percent college acceptance rate. According to the report, transcripts were doctored and extracurricular activities were invented. Students were encouraged to lie about their family situations in order to make their successes appear even more dramatic. And students and teachers alike described a culture of abuse that was widespread.

In the video, posted to Twitter last week, the white manager is seen laughing and telling the group of men, You gotta pay cause you never have money when you come in here. As one of the men is filming, a white customer was allegedly given their meal for free, according to...

The venerable California Democrat who won yet another congressional term, is one of the strongest critics of Trump, has battled with the President and endured insult after insult since he Trump took office. From referring to Waters as having a low-IQ to calling her crazy and corrupt, Trump has...

    President Trumps former personal attorney Michael Cohen has accused Trump of claiming blacks were too stupid to vote for him, in addition to using other racist language. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Cohen stated that Trump made multiple derogatory comments about blacks. Cohen said that after watching a rally as part of the 2016 campaign, he told Trump that the crowd was predominately white. I told Trump that the rally looked vanilla on television. Trump responded, Thats because black people are too stupid to vote for me, Cohen said, according to Vanity Fair. Similar language had been used before...
