When Japanese-Americans’ allegiance was questioned

“Allegiance" takes you into the harsh day-to-day life of the fictional Kimura family in the internment camps

“Allegiance” will soon be coming to your neck of the woods, because it’s a tour de force. And, it’s another shameful time in American history.  

How I was taught to be a Chameleon

And I finally have overcome my shame about being gay after dating four women.

I wasn’t born a chameleon.

I was groomed for it when at the uncertain age of 14 I learned it was not okay to be gay by society’s standards, inflicted on me by a certain institution I was thrust into by no choice of my own.

It was June 1980 and I was living in a Baptist children's home (you see where this is going, don’t you)?

Another black Harvard man arrested

On Friday evening, April 13, Selorm Ohene, 21, was charged with indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, assault, resisting arrest, and assault and battery on ambulance personnel.

A black girl's take on 'A Wrinkle in Time'

What is unjustified are the racist critiques about using a young black female actress to depict a universal theme about the messy complications, frustrations, and uncertainty about girlhood. 

"A Wrinkle in Time" was a must-see film for me. And, a must- see flick worldly different from dashing out to see “Black Panther.”  It doesn’t mean, however, Ava Duvernay’s $100 million dollar film with a multicultural cast isn’t without problems. It is which is one of the reasons the film has received mixed reviews unlike “Black Panther’s” ongoing and wildly enthusiastic critical appraise.

Adam Rippon's single status shouldn't be the focus of this historic LGBT sports star

Just a few days ago, Adam himself may have started asking people to focus on other things. 

Adam Rippon was the first out gay male figure skater to participate in the Winter Olympics, but it seems the public isn’t as focused on that triumph as they are about his relationship status, publicly asking him out on dates during interviews and through Twitter feeds.  

Billy Graham’s ministry of LGBTQ intolerance 

And the LGBTQ community will not be silent in this moment of public mourning.

The  Reverend William (Billy) Franklin  Graham Jr.(1918- 2018) has died at the age of 99. Too often, hagiographies are painted when people die, especially of ministers. The televangelist, however, is not deserving of such high praises.
