"Celebrities change their appearances for all kinds of reasons, but praising a racially motivated, excrutiatingly painful cosmetic procedure as 'worth it' is, at best, insensitive. (And at worst? I really don’t want to break out the 'r' word.) Did Hayworth look better than Cansino did? That’s subjective. But there are some ugly, ugly implications attached to glorifying a makeover designed to hide Hayworth’s heritage. I mean, what’s the reader takeaway supposed to be here? That everyone looks better as a white person? That the agony Hayworth must have gone through was 'worth it' to not look Hispanic?"

"Any average day in urban America, you’ll find a woman that has a story about street harassment. The cat calling, butt groping, or 'accidental' feel ups that women tend to endure remain an ongoing issue that is a blatant example of gender inequality. It is incomprehensible why grown men can’t manage to talk to women like normal human beings. Yet, it’s more disturbing to see older men cat call women young enough to be their daughters or granddaughters. If you are 50 years old, there is no reason for you to be harassing a woman that barely looks twenty. As child molestation and rape continue to plague our communities, isn’t it time that we 'check' our 'elders' for sexually harassing young women in the street? Or will this form of dysfunction stay buried between silence and nonchalance?"

"An Oregon school bus driver fired after he refused to remove a Confederate battle flag from his pickup truck has filed a federal lawsuit to get his job back.
"Webber has said that the flag — emblazoned with the word 'Redneck' — is an expression of his cultural identity, and in no way a statement of racism or political beliefs."
