LeBron gives kids from hard streets a chance

This year in the NBA playoffs, LeBron James silenced all the chatterers who questioned his legacy. He put his team, decimated by injuries, on his back and willed them to the NBA finals.

Racially motivated murder of young Black Americans across the United States is not a new or rare phenomenon.

Environmental Protection Agency is out of control

Environmental Protection Agency is out of control

Gone are the days when the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was set up as an agency that would draw recruits from the civil rights movement and the legions protesting the Vietnam War.
