First of all, I would like to start off by saying that I am registered as an independent. I try my best to be unbiased and I do not approve of sexism and racism in any way.

Just as millions of other Americans, I watched tirelessly in hope that Clinton would climb back up in the race and miraculously win the...

  Thanksgiving, America’s excuse to eat. It's the holiday whose message is to give wholehearted thanks for all that is great in life. Too bad the lesson and meaning of Thanksgiving is rendered pointless because of Black Friday.   With Christmas approaching, I decided to look back...

N-I-G-G-A. What does that spell? These six letters embody polarization, hypocrisy, maliciousness, but also a form of endearment. The “n-word” can convey brotherly love, but it can also articulate hateful discrimination. This word has made careers and destroyed them. In a country that ensures...
