Players who take liberal stands or conservative positions are often slammed for focusing on something other than sports. But these are not computerized players from my son's Madden NFL game or a baseball video game.
The University of Missouri football players who threatened to boycott upcoming games until their concerns about racism on campus were properly addressed are to be applauded.
I recently entered a contest that Time Out New York held to find its latest and greatest blogger. The entry for the contest involved writing a piece a...
Have you cleaned out an attic lately and found a basketball autographed by some kid at the University of North Carolina named Jordan? You may want to hang onto that and get it appraised. The original Magic Mike can bring in the big bucks.
Presidential candidate and former Comedy Central Roastee Donald Trump has made multiple headlines this year for his repetitive racist and fascist-like remarks. His cartoonish rich-guy cliches have lent themselves to multiple satire articles.
For black social progress, giving voice has been as or even more important than giving money.

Summer is never ever a good time to wear business attire as a guy in New York City, especially when you ride the subway to work every day. That's because guys don't wear dresses. We wear dress shirts.
Nicole R. Fleetwood calls her latest book On Racial Icons: Blackness and the Public Imagination, "an act of love." But readers may end up referring to it as tough love.
About a month ago, we were watching the NBA finals and enjoying the back and forth battle between Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors vs. LeBron...
"This is the best night of my life," Amy Schumer addressed the exuberant crowd at Alice Tully Hall on Tuesday for the world premiere of her romantic comedy, Trainwreck. Director Judd Apatow stood nearby feeding the comedienne lines, reminding her to thank Universal and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, hosts of the spectacular launch, including the lavish after party at the refurbished Tavern on the Green.
To my mind, Trainwreck is both a very funny movie -- and yet another example of Apatow's inability to edit himself. Like every movie he's made, this one has several big laughs -- and could easily be 20 minutes shorter.
LeBron James is back in Cleveland. You can put your photoshopped pictures of him in your favorite team's jersey in your trash folder. It was pretty much a done deal that he would return to Cleveland even after he opted out.
"I usually don't f**k with the internet, but Nate, Zoe, Danez, and Gabe are on to something. Reading Beale Street Talks is my favorite way to spend an afternoon." - James Baldwin, 1968
Bernie is a great guy, but he is no Steph Curry, and he is no Alison Bechdel. His value, not to be underestimated, is in pressuring the frontrunner by energizing progressives.
LeBron is not a horrible player. He is one of the best of our time. However, announcing himself as the best player on Earth whilst being unproven in the Finals as well as having a bevy of contestant in what is probably the most competitive league we've ever seen just seems plain foolish.
