In 10 Minutes- ESPN's Bomani Jones Lays Waste To The Sterling Issue

I could delve deeper into some of the points Bomani Jones made yesterday on the Dan Le Batard Show- about how fundamentally silly this whole Donald Sterling affair sounds when you really listen to what's being said- about how exasperating it is for those of us who see the everyday effects of race to…

Seth's Blog: "I didn't have time"

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Welcome to the Finger-Wagging Olympics

"What bothers me about this whole Donald Sterling affair isn't just his racism. I'm bothered that everyone acts as if it's a huge surprise.

Hey Star Wars — Where the Hell Are the Women?

"Are we seriously still pretending that the universe is comprised almost entirely of men (and mostly white men at that)? Mythic tales are supposed to open up possibilities- not shut them down."

Hey Star Wars — Where the Hell Are the Women?

This morning we all delighted in the casting announcement for Star Wars VII. And then the reality set in: There is only one new female character being added to what is arguably the world's most beloved mythic series.
