Black Stars Who Attended the Oscars Speak Out

Written by Thursday, March 03, 2016
With no person of color receiving acting nominations, the 88th Annual Academy Awards show was noticeably lacking a few of its brightest stars. Many chose to skip the ceremonies to protest the lack of diversity. As actor and host Chris Rock said, if Oscar hosts had to be nominated, he wouldn’t have a job. Being black and hosting the Oscars during a year when African Americans are boycotting the show placed Rock in a precarious…

Rose Bowl Returns to Pasadena

Written by Sunday, January 03, 2016
"Find Your Adventure" is the theme of the 127th Rose Parade presented by Honda. Grown out of a unique partnership between the Pasadena Tournament of Roses and the U.S. National Park Service, the parade will celebrate our national parks. The adventure theme will no doubt carry over to the thousands of spectators who will brave the chilly Pasadena air, sleeping overnight to get a good spot to view festivities. Unlike last year, when temperatures dipped…

Halloween No-No List

Written by Thursday, October 29, 2015
Is it okay to be politically incorrect on Halloween? Apparently, no. According to MSNBCs website, a group called DoSomething.org is keeping tabs on costumes that are offensive, racist or just in poor taste. The site has a campaign which rates costumes, with one-star reviews for racist costumes, for example. Keeping with the theme, “We’re a Culture, Not a Costume,” the site seeks to “educate people about cultural appropriation — and why it’s (offensiveness) still not…
Few weeks back, I wrote a gleaming article about the beauty and hidden gem that we have in the Inglewood Public Library, and here’s another reason why: Art Day in Inglewood! It’s 11 o’clock in the morning, and already it’s feeling like we live in Nevada and not 10 minutes from the ocean. I’m sweating and heading to the library after a brief stint at the Grevillea Art Park Mural for the opening ceremonies. I…

Rise of The Hip Hop Biopic

Written by Thursday, September 17, 2015
Hip Hop culture is more like a hustler’s sport. How hard you grind, is in most cases, more important than how dope you rhyme. Over the years we’ve seen Hip Hop take the world by storm, enabling kids from the poorest of the poor communities, to reach international acclaim and crossover into marketplaces unfathomable 40 years ago. From selling drugs to selling music, to selling merchandise, to selling whatever will sell, Hip Hop entrepreneurship has…

Kanye For President?

Written by Thursday, September 03, 2015
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards was held at the Microsoft Center in Downtown Los Angeles and the star of the show once again was none other than the Millennial All-Star, neighborhood rock star, and politically incorrect man of ideas and dreams, Kanye West. No, he didn’t remind us that George Bush doesn’t care about Black people, nor did he tell us that Beyonce had one of the greatest videos of all time, instead he…
