Ben & Jerry’s Calls Out White Privilege on 4/20: “It’s Hard to Celebrate When People of Color Are Being Arrested”

The Smollett family is a talented bunch of singers, writers and actors, but it appears that one of the Smolletts may have missed his calling as a lawyer, because the defense JoJo Smollett has mounted in the form of a guest article on on behalf of his younger brother, Jussie, is the most compelling clapback that anyone in Jussie’s camp has made to date.Jojo, who was an actor and producer himself in the ’90s but now runs a nonprofit that helps developmentally disabled people rejoin the wor...

In a climate where black-on-black crime is being scrutinized in light of the death of Nipsey Hussle, there’s renewed energy in the black community on healing and mending conflict between black men.So I guess someone, somewhere brought it up to Ja Rule that he and 50 Cent should try to put their decades-long beef behind them.

San Francisco Tourists May Soon Have To Pay To Drive Down This Famous Street

San Francisco ’s Lombard Street is affectionately nicknamed Crooked Street, and for good reason. The winding road is flanked by beautiful landscaping and colorful homes, earning it a spot in many city guides and on many Instagram feeds (of course). While the street is a remarkable sight on foot, the full experience comes from driving down its steep hill — but that might soon come at a cost.Legislation proposed in the California state legislature earlier this week would implement a reservation ...
