How We Can Fight Prejudice Against Muslims

During the terrorist attacks on September 11th, I was a middle school student in a suburb outside Atlanta, Georgia. I recall my teacher breaking down and crying, and lots of students going home early, even though I stayed through the school day. What I remember most from the days that followed was the outpouring of support from friends and the community, most of which was not Muslim like my family was. I remember my father telling me about a friend of his, a Southern man, assuring him that if a...

10 things we know (or don't yet know) about the 4-1 Twins

In their book "Think Like a Freak" — a sort of sequel to "Freakonomics" — authors Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner assert that the three hardest words to say in the English language are not, in fact, "I love you." Rather, they are: "I don't know." When you make that admission instead of asserting an answer or bluffing your way through a situation, you become vulnerable. But that vulnerability can be a key to reframing a situation in order to look at it differently and honestly. With that i...

Is Ted Cruz Using Smart Tactics On ERPO Laws? You Decide

Opinion Ted Cruz Texas/United States – -( The controversy over “red flag” laws, also known as Emergency Response Protection Orders (ERPO), is not going away. Anti-Second Amendment extremists have been pushing versions that are being signed into law. The first problem is that those versions have real problems. The second problem is that after the repeated screw-ups of the bumbling cowards of Broward County and the FBI’s fumbling of two tips prior to Parkland, there is a real des...

Only as good as your name? You Beto believe it! 

When it comes to evaluating people we don’t know much about, typically the first thing we judge them by is their name. Fair or not, somebody’s name causes us to make certain assumptions about their age, gender, where they come from or even what their religion might be — as there generally aren’t too many Millie’s under the age of 80, women named Bob, or Mormons named Muhammad. The cues in a name can lead us to positive reactions, or make us skeptical and suspicious. This is human nature, and no ...

First, Angélique Kidjo paid tribute to Talking Heads; now she's honoring Celia Cruz, the Queen of Salsa

Angélique Kidjo is a three-time Grammy-winning musician and activist from Benin; for more than a week, all I have listened to is her tribute to Talking Heads' 1980 album "Remain in Light," an album so great I bought tickets to see Kidjo perform it live about ten seconds after hearing it. Kidjo is moving from strength to strength, with a forthcoming Afrobeat album called "Celia," which pays tribute to Cuban diva Celia Cruz, the "Queen of Salsa." It comes out on April 19, and judging from...
