Brown V. Board of Ed: "Shock Exchange" Ensures Prince Edward County, VA Will Never Be Forgotten PDF Print E-mail

May 17th marked the 62nd anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision which integrated public schools in the U.S. The Brown decision was several decades in the making. It took the efforts of several lawyers, lawmakers and brave students and parents to stand up against segregated schools. The red herring in Brown was that states were supposed to integrate "with all due speed." It also took several years to actually integrate schools after the decision was rendered. The other misnomer is that the Brown decision was one case; it was actually five cases. One of the cases was Davis v. Prince Edward County, VA -- the county where I grew up. 

 
Will Warriors Protect Steph Curry By Having Iquodala Guard Westbrook? PDF Print E-mail

ImageRussell Westbrook struggled in the first half of Game 1 of the WFC against the Warriors. He had three points in the first half, but hung 24 on Golden State in the second. He blew past Klay Thompson for finishes at the rim and cooked Steph Curry from mid-range. He put jumpers in Steph's eye and single-handedly willed the Thunder back from a 13 point deficit.

Video: Steph Curry Claps Back At LeBron PDF Print E-mail

Steph Curry was named unanimous MVP of the NBA this year, the first ever to do it. When you think of dominant players -- Jordan, Wilt, Bird, Magic, Shaq, LeBron -- none ever one unanimous MVPs. For some reason Steph Curry isn't the first player to come to mind, yet he is the only one to ever accomplish the feat. Agreed, awards are subjective and can at times be a popularity contest. When asked about this year's voting, LeBron James said something to effect that "The MVP is not necessarily the best player in the L." Of course, Steph had to clap back:

The Blacks Dragged Rachel Dolezal. Now She Has A Book Deal. PDF Print E-mail
ImageCivil Rights activist Rachel Dolezal created a firestorm last year when she was accused of "passing as black." Dolezal was the President of the NAACP in Spokane WA when her biological parents called her out for misrepresenting her true heritage. She was interviewed by KXLY Channel 4 in Spokane and thoroughly embarrassed for lying on camera that a black man was her father. Dolezal later resigned from the NAACP and was released from teaching Africana Studies at Eastern Washington University. The African American community dragged Dolezal at every turn, and the more they harped the more publicity Dolezal received. She has appeared on the Melissa Harris Perry Show, Today Show, and the BBC, amongst others. She has now parlayed her notoriety into a book deal with independent publisher BenBella Books.

Larry Wilmore Shows His ___ At White House Correspondents Dinner PDF Print E-mail
ImagePresident Obama has given several African Americans a chance to be in the spotlight during his presidency. You hardly ever saw black journalists in the crowd during a presidential briefing, let alone have one called on to ask a question. However, the blacks may have taken their access to the White House for granted by shucking and jiving. Friday a black reporter asked the President to comment on Donald Trump's Taco Bowl tweet. Is that the best black journalists can do. A week earlier comedian Larry Wilmore played himself at the White House Correspondents' Dinner by referring to the President as a racial slur.
 
Laramey Tunsil Bong Video Costs Him Millions PDF Print E-mail
ImageNFL draft day is always full of surprises. Some players are over-hyped and fall further than one expected. Others are drafted higher than expected due to teams' obfuscating their true intentions. The true 2016 draft will live in infamy after a leaked video of Ole Miss offensive guard Laremy Tunsil smoking marijuana via a gas mask. I know college kids used drugs, but my goodness! Tunsil was expected to go number one but fell to Miami at number 13. The video cost Tunsil millions in guaranteed signing bonus money.
