    Better start looking for a Sept 3rd opponent...

    Media company hypocrisy

    One thing is for sure, Disney doesn't care about racial equality, they care about making money.

    Kanye West Confirms 2020 Presidential Run...

    It's my understanding that he's missed the deadline to appear on the ballot in 6 states. He needs to file with the FEC by the end of the month to really have a shot at affecting the election.

    Kanye West Confirms 2020 Presidential Run...

    This could end up being really interesting if he follows through. There's no way he'll win, but there's a very real chance that he could pull enough votes away from Biden to sway the election.

    Question regarding the public reactions to racism

    Many people consider inequality of outcome to be proof of bias. That isn't necessarily the case. For example, 97% of people shot by the police are men. Does that statistic prove that police are biased towards men?

    Question regarding the public reactions to racism

    There are times when the criminal justice system leaves you scratching your head, but the details surrounding these two convictions are vastly different than what's been portrayed in the media. http://12circuit.state.fl.us/Portal...blic-response/Response to Tribune Article.pdf Mr. Legleitner...

    Question regarding the public reactions to racism

    That's the overall single parent rate for the country of Nigeria. I'm not sure if we keep track of immigrant single parent household rates prior to leaving their original country. I wouldn't assume that it would be that much different though.

    Question regarding the public reactions to racism

    65% of African American children grow up in a single parent household. Only 4% of Nigerian children grow up in a single parent household. I'm not that familiar with the country of Nigeria, but it appears that there's a vastly different culture there. As mentioned earlier, welfare has played a...

    Question regarding the public reactions to racism

    I don't think anyone will dispute the fact that things like slavery, oppression, & historical systemic racism have played a big part in where the African American community is today. Those are well documented facts. But the question is, what about our current system is systemically racist and...

    Question regarding the public reactions to racism

    What are some examples of what you consider to be systemic racism? The biggest issue I see is lack of access to quality K-12 education in lower income areas. This affects a disproportionate amount of minorities, but it isn't really something I would consider to be systemically racist.

    Gundys contract readjusted.

    It's my understanding that Coach Gundy's base annual salary is only $500K. The vast majority of his income is considered "supplemental compensation." So this probably won't be an issue.

    Statement from Holder on football

    The contract adjustments are interesting. Coach Gundy suggested a $1 million pay cut, shortening the length from 5 years to 4 years, and reducing the buyout guarantee from 75% to 50%. It appears that he's doing everything possible to prove that he's committed to changing and making things work...

    OSU Men's Basketball banned from postseason for 2020-21

    We had to file the appeal by June 20th. The NCAA's timeline for the appeals process is 110 days, but that can be extended based off the complexity of the case. So no one knows for sure. I wouldn't expect to hear anything for at least a few months.
