    "Black-ish" creator Kenya Barris is the latest public figure refusing to be owned by our current political climate. Like Colin Kaepernick, he will not sacrifice his voice to conform to a system that caters to President Donald Trump and his supposedly profitable fan base. Barris recently told The Hollywood Reporter he is departing ABC, a network the magazine describes as led by executives "forthright about their desire for more red-state programming since Trump's win," for Netflix. Barris revealed that his last straw with ABC was the network's shelving -- and as the magazine adds, all but erasing from existence, with...

    In a recent viral video, an unidentified white woman in line at a grocery store in Oregon, dressed in a floral romper and black knee-high boots, overheard a black woman’s phone conversation. She believed this black woman was trying to sell food stamps illegally. The exchange became heated, and the white woman was told, in no uncertain terms, to mind her business. “Oh, it is my business,” the white woman responded. “Because I pay my taxes.” She then said something that, quite frankly, stunned me: “We’re going to build this wall.” This was not an oddly timed statement about her...

The center’s website states it is “Transforming the Lives of Black Women & Girls.” Also according to its website, “Our mission is to serve Black women and girls by transforming their relationship with their sexual and reproductive health through addressing the consequences of reproduction...

The Queen of Soul was remembered during a nearly eight-hour service that featured tributes from former U.S. President Bill Clinton and civil rights leaders, as well as often emotional performances by entertainers Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson and Gladys Knight.

Now, Brown wants the blacks to show more accountability for the decisions they make and the predicaments they are in so that they will have less hardships...

    U.S. president Donald Trump is receiving higher-than-expected support from black Americans, according to new polling. But a vigorous debate is underway as to exactly how much black support he is receiving. According to a new Rasmussen survey, Trump is backed by a whopping 36 percent of black voters. Wait … what? If that sounds too high, it’s because it probably is. We aren’t convinced that number is accurate, although Rasmussen – along with the Trafalgar Group – was one of the few national firms to correctly predict Trump’s upset victory in 2016. They clearly knew something the other pollsters didn’t...

Because Apple focused on how the iPod made your life better.In marketing there is something called “The Chasm.” It’s an idea put forth by Geoffrey Moore in the early 90’s.
