The Damage a White-Centric Education Has on Young People of Color

With it being Black History Month in the UK, it’s that time of year when schools pretend to care about black history for a week before returning to their ethnocentric education. It’s that ironic month where pupils sit in school assemblies where they watch videos about how a lack of representation in school subjects can affect pupils of color before going to their history lessons where they’ll learn about the Tudor period for the fifth time in their

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,

Why We Deserve An FBI Investigation of Kavanaugh

Christine Blasey Ford came forward and accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party in the 1980’s when they were in high school. She wants the FBI to independently investigate her claim before she testifies in front of the Senate – however, Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley has shut this idea down. “It’s not the FBI’s role to investigate a matter such as this,” Grassley wrote in a letter to

Child Sex Trafficking Victims Are Treated Like Criminals

Minors cannot legally consent to sex, yet they can be charged with prostitution under the majority of state laws. Victims of child sex trafficking are currently being arrested and even prosecuted in thirty-one states. Children, victims – these are the people being arrested. It seems backwards that the victims are treated as criminals. “States do not recognize that buyers of child sex are at fault consistently,” expressed Christine Raino, the Senior Director of Public Policy

In 2013, the Rana Plaza garment factory in Bangladesh collapsed. The tragedy claimed the lives of over 1000 garment workers and injured many more. Immediately after the collapse happened, blame was pointed to several parties. The building was damaged and unsafe, so the mayor was to blame because he leased it out. Some pointed out that the workers were urged to come despite the risk, so it was the owner’s fault. The real culprit exposed

Five Tips for Vegetarians Who Really, Really Hate Salads

Vegetarianism is at the forefront of healthy living. It’s no surprise there are so many more vegetarian and vegan food options across restaurants and dining halls nationwide. But there’s one serious catch– salads. To some, these dishes are an easy way to slide into the vegetarian way of life. To others, salads are a steaming pile of your worst nightmare. But no need to fear! Take it from me, a fellow vegetarian who avidly avoids

Why Women Are Afraid of Judge Brett Kavanaugh

It’s September 2018 and there are men screaming at feminists on Twitter about how women have equal rights, and that we are just whiny babies. I have run out of energy to defend my views because I feel like a broken record every time I say that women often face adversity, harassment, and unequal treatment compared to their male counterparts. Right now, I can have my feminist views, and the men screaming on Twitter can

This weekend 20-year-old Osaka made national headlines as the first ever Japanese tennis player to win a Grand Slam singles title.
