“…I’m 28, I’m black, and I’m living in a time where there’s very much a revolution of thought happening, and if I were to stay silent it would be as stupid as what other people are doing,” said Kerby Jean-Raymond, founder of the luxury sportswear brand Pyer Moss said last year, “I have a small […]

While many Hispanics are getting serious about stopping Donald Trump, there is a vocal minority who see things differently.

Millennials are detached from standard political party alignment, as evidenced by a Pew Research study showing that only 31 percent believe there’s a considerable difference between the two major parties, and over half identify as independent. This split from standard political alignment is disconcerting, especially to the GOP, a party that continually pushes policies that […]

“[T]he vast majority of the time I was pulled over for nothing more than driving a new car in the wrong neighborhood or some other reason just as trivial,” said South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott during a Senate speech on Wednesday. In it, he recounted past run-ins with police and the unfair scrutiny he has […]
