I Wish Fight Videos & Disturbing Pictures Are Banned From Social Media

OPINION- When I joined social media it was a direct link to staying in touch with family, friends, associates, former co-workers, and enhance networking opportunities.

Common & John Legend Was All I Wanted To See During The 2015 Oscars

OPINION-I didn’t watch the Oscars last night. I attempted to watch it, but ten minutes in I felt the desire to watch Netflix. I didn’t miss much, with the exception of Patricia Arquette’s speech concerning equality for women. It’s a shame in 2015 we still asking to be treated fairly, but that is what happens […]

OPINION- I am going to get straight to the point. Jason Kidd, who should be a first ballot hall of famer, was literally traded to the Bucks by the Nets for 2 second round draft picks (one in 2015 and another in ’19) and a quarter water (well not really) in order to sign on […]
