    Osama Bin Laden has represented a host of ideas from various angles. But one thing he remains in the US mind is a myth, a fictitious being that has operated with God-like qualities in a cave, just like Jesus. Nobody actually saw him, but people hated, feared

    Serena Williams’ fifth win at the Wimbledon in early July marked her fourteenth major professional tennis title, something that about seven women have done in the history of professional tennis with three being American. And she did it as a raw vegan,

    I don’t think any person born and reared in the US, and is living today, could not defend Chris Rock’s bitterly truthful twitter statement better than Tim Giago, a Native American who points out the racial hypocrisy and historical ignorance that

    Paul Ryan’s Black Ex-Girlfriend Does Matter

    August 25, 2012 • Politics, Race • Views: 2239

    Paul Ryan’s recent disclosure of having a serious relationship with a black woman does matter. Though it is an embryonic tactic to create a racelessness Republican identity, it is still heavily embedded in race politics; or rather, keeping race in

    Of course people would argue that Lupe Fiasco’s tearful interview explaining the continual violence, gross disenfranchisement and hopelessness in his hometown of West Side Chicago should be the very reason why he should vote. On the contrary, it has

    August 6, 2012 • Culture, Gender, Race • Views: 2248

    There isn’t anything remotely close to London Olympic gold medalist, Gabby Douglas, being a squirrel—be it flying, scurrying or smashed like roadkill. Gabby is the quintessential American hero who has risen like a graceful Phoenix—dark

    I must admit, Graham Spanier’s latest job in crisis management for the US government is extremely appropriate. I cannot see a better candidate who can cover up a fuck up (literally) for more than 10 years like the ousted president of Penn State. Spanier
