Blackface & Politics: Exposing a dark history of personal racism

When I was growing up, both in NYC and South Florida, I had friends of all races.

Social Media 2019: Ever consider just walking away?

There it was. Right in front of me. All it would take is one click. One tap. One flick of the finger and off it would go, sailing into the great electronic beyond and do exactly what it was intended to do. Smack someone right in the intellectual face with a response guaranteed to [...]
