America’s Newsrooms Still Lack Representation

If the role of media is to communicate to its people, why then are only certain people allowed to speak up? The media is meant to provide the public with unbiased accounts of the stories that matter most. Whether if be the latest update on White House matters, or food writing during the holidays, these pieces should represent the general beliefs of the public inform them in an unbiased manner. According to the Census Bureau,

Here’s How to Make Your New Year’s Resolution Stick

We’ve all tried to make a shiny New Years resolution. And we’ve all pretty much failed at it. Losing weight and saving money are great resolutions for the New Year, but why do they never stick? What happens to, “New Year, new you?” Well for one, having a bad foundation for your resolution can be dreadful. Also, having unfocused goals is a recipe for disaster.  Yes, making a New Year’s resolution can be hard, but

There’s No Such Thing as “Not Black Enough”

In such a racially polarized environment, you’d think that people of the same color are more likely to stick together as a people. It’s obvious to recognize that this just isn’t true. In America, and other parts of the world, Black people take part in a society that doesn’t want much to do with them. We’ve faced centuries of discrimination and decades of segregation. We’ve been subject to all types of tortures and hardships. We’ve

How to Celebrate the Holidays With a Dysfunctional Family

What should be one of the most ‘wonderful times of the year’ can be times of heartache and resentment when your family has a hard time coming together. Whether it be sibling rivalries, jealous aunts, or bitter divorces, the joy of holidays can be stripped away by the hate in the hearts of family members. The holidays should be a time of love, but instead, life happens. It may seem like this is an uncommon

America is Covertly Profiting From School Shootings

You would think that with every incident of gun violence, there would be a push for policy. Instead, there’s only been a growth in profiting. In the wake of so many school shootings, security companies and defense associations have thoroughly increased their revenue after a boom in the industry. Instead of the demand in gun reform increasing, there’s only been a demand in security mechanisms for schools. While implemented with good intentions, the problem with

Tensions Grow As the Central American Migrant Caravan Nears The US Border

Weeks ago, a migrant caravan began its journey to the United States border, containing Central Americans on the path to a better chance at life. Now, with the caravan slowly approaching, around 4,000 migrants remain, who are still desperately marching towards their chance at the “American Dream.” The group contains natives from El Salvador, Guatemala, and numerous other Central American countries that are staring in the face of poverty and violence. Thousands have come to

How Racial Targeting Prevents Black People From Living Their Lives

It’s been an interesting year for African Americans who are simply trying mind to their business. Instead of coming out into the world to live their lives, they’re being subtly pushed away by their white counterparts. Not only is this an infuriating act of discrimination; this is a major waste of time for emergency response teams to deal with. At this point, it’s unsafe for black people to merely take part in their own society.

The Hidden Disorder: Here’s 6 Tips For Dealing With Insomnia

Not being able to sleep can be a pretty common problem until it starts to seep into your daily life. Insomnia is a real life sleep disorder, and I’ve had firsthand accounts on what it can do to you and your health. Symptoms include difficulty sleeping, waking up in the night and feeling tired upon waking. To some, it may seem like an elementary problem– “just close your eyes and sleep.” But to the sleepless,

Here’s What Eric Reid’s Signing Means For the NFL

Eric Reid, the first NFL player to kneel with Colin Kaepernick, and in turn, become a free agent, finally got signed by the Carolina Panthers yesterday. The first time Eric Reid knelt was in 2016, when he decided to follow in Kaepernick’s footsteps and kneel as a calm protest for police brutality against African Americans. Although he knew his job was on the line, he still took a knee with his then-San Francisco 49er’s teammate,

The NFL Is Signing Criminals, But Kaepernick Is Still a Free Agent

We’re coming up on the third week in the NFL regular season and there are more examples of corruption facing the league than ever. During Monday Night Football on Sep. 17, the Chicago Bears faced the Seattle Seahawk. Although the Bears came out on top with a 24-17 victory, that wasn’t what caught the attention of most fans. The spotlight was on linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who was starting on the Seahawks defense. The same man
