Nice... We just need an Ironfist. 😉
If Netflix’s Luke Cage is about anything, it’s about power — and no word is imbued with as much unique power in black life as "nigga." Luke Cage himself makes that much clear. Early on in the new...

As I have said, this is a great coping mechanism that works...

Strong:

Lawyers for bandleader Simon Tam argued that in choosing the name The Slants in 2006, he "was following in the long tradition of 'reappropriation,' in which members of minority groups have reclaimed terms that were once directed at them as insults and turned them outward as badges of pride."
The case involving The Slants rock band is similar to Washington Redskins dispute

I think her smile, to me anyway, says, "Yes, you look like a dork in those things." 
Available in the fall for $130, they'll record 10-second video clips.

In a similar article by Chris Arnold, heard on NPR this morning, it was said this questioning united democrats and republicans in congress on the self-serving nature and public dislike for what Wells Fargo was doing.

Irony...
Wells Fargo says John Stumpf and the former retail-banking head will forfeit stock awards worth about $60 million combined, after employees opened unauthorized customer accounts to meet company goals.

City X isn’t less safe now than it was then. It’s quite a bit more safe. But context and long-term perspective are harder to fit into a headline.

If they wanted to put that in a headline, they could. The question the media needs to answer is:

Do they want to inform or get page-views?
For the most part, the U.S. is as safe as ever. And where it isn't, sowing fear only makes things worse

DANIEL LEVITIN:

I mean, part of it is that, when we have learned something, there’s this thing called belief perseverance. Having learned something, we tend to cling to that belief, even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

New information comes in all time, and the thing we ought to be thinking about doing is changing our beliefs as that new information comes in.
In the digital age, we have access to all the information that we could ever want. But that means there’s also a lot of misinformation out there. How do we know what’s true and what isn’t? That’s what Daniel Levitin attempts to teach readers of his new book, “A Field Guide to Lies.” Jeffrey Brown sits down with Levitin to learn how we can sift through the digital field of information.
