Kelly Frazier | September 4, 2015 | Detroit
In the early 1980s, the New York City-based Anthrax was on the forefront of thrash metal and would become one the most unrelenting bands with an in your face approach to the way they played music.

A Tale Of Two Cities: Sterling Heights vs. Dearborn, Mich.

Brian Stone | September 3, 2015 | Detroit
The local zoning board and mayor are the latest faces of Islamophobia as they show opposition to the site for a variety of, frankly, stupid reasons. The mayor is even claiming that places of worship don't belong near houses.

Detroit Hip-Hop Artist Quelle Chris Tackles Our Society's Virtue on New Album Innocent Country

Kelly Frazier | September 2, 2015 | Detroit
Quelle Chris has always been an oddball of Detroit hip-hop. From his early days with the group Wasted Youth along with other projects like Awesome In Outer Space or Crown Nation, he defies all aesthetics with music that is a mirror reflection of his own self.

Intentionally Unintentional

Delphia Simmons | September 1, 2015 | Detroit
There are enough examples of the long-term negative impact of unintentionality and exclusion as cities work on urban revitalization. If we are to have revitalization without gentrification -- and I believe we can -- then we can't keep missing the target.

Roanoke: He Was Not One of Us

Jaye Watson | August 28, 2015 | Media
The live aspect of our business is just one of the many reasons that television news is not for the faint of heart. Nor is it for the thin-skinned. And in the hours after we found out that Adam and Alison's killer was someone who had been a journalist, I had one thought -- he wasn't one of us.

I Am an Anchor Baby

María Carla Sánchez | August 27, 2015 | Latino Voices
"No more anchor babies!" "We'll make the illegals build the wall!" "Repeal the 14th Amendment!" Whatever leads us to our next president, I fear there will be nothing inspirational, sublime, or hopeful about it. The hateful hounds are already loose, and they are very, very loud.

Katrina: Where Faith and Interfaith Groups Picked Up as Federal Government Failed

Abdul Malik Mujahid | August 27, 2015 | Religion
The failure of the strongest government in the world was of historic proportions. But faith and interfaith communities made history. They were the first responders, if not the only help, for most people over the course of several weeks. After 10 years, their work with survivors continues.

Zagat | August 24, 2015 | Taste
Fried chicken's feel-good sense of nostalgia is perhaps to blame for its rampant popularity. But that doesn't mean its preparations have to be limited to fast-food sandwiches.

My First Lesson in Politics: How to Avoid Being Treated Like a Sex Object

Sen. Claire McCaskill | August 21, 2015 | Politics
In January 1983 I was one of 163 members sworn in to the Missouri House. How I was treated then had a lot to do with how I looked. It took a while, but I would overcome the "ditzy blonde" stereotype as the only female lawyer, though not the only woman, in the state house.

Scott Santens | August 20, 2015 | Technology
Centuries of data may show us how jobs have been both destroyed and created, but recent decades worth of more nuanced data more importantly show us there's more to this story.

Madeline Wahl | August 20, 2015 | Women
I don't want someone to rush how I live my life. My life is just that: mine. The men and women around you who are single? It's their choice whether they want to hit the bars and have fun or try to settle down by finding the right person.

An excellent example of this comes from Allen West website editor-in-chief, Michele Hickford, who recently penned an article titled "Liberals start screaming: Chick-fil-A restaurant owner does the unimaginable to his employees."

In the next two months, over 25,000 properties across Detroit will be put up for sale in the nation's largest-ever municipal property auction. In any other city, this would be groundbreaking news but, in Detroit, it hardly budges from the status quo.
