I would like to open this letter by saying I know that not all of you are bad. I know many of you represent the pillars of Greek Life: scholarship, leadership, service, and brotherhood.
Through President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night, there was no divisive rhetoric, only a message of hope. The president presented moments in which we could all come together as proud Americans — moments and stories that transcend party lines.
Together is a word that Donald Trump now seems to love. Over and over in his State of the Union speech he used that word.
The first week of the spring split is always an explosive one. New teams have entered and are battling it out with the former kings.
Though the first episode of ‘My Next Guest Needs No Introduction’ will please those who desperately miss the sound of Obama’s voice, the episode doesn’t have much substance apart from the people involved. Letterman and Obama have a likable dynamic that makes it fun to watch at surface level, but the interview lacks a level of importance that could have really made Obama’s reappearance into something noteworthy.
The first episode of 'The Assassination of Gianni Versace' stays true to the facts and original story. The characters were cast well and the dialogue was just as good. The story of the show sticks out and prevents it from getting lost in the crowd of other TV shows. The episode was well-written to provide justice for the victims affected by the tragedy, but also provides knowledge for those who are unfamiliar with the assassination of Gianni Versace. The show provides a personality that you couldn't just get from reading a book about Versace and explains more in-depth how his company continued to thrive after his death. It also provides a closer look at how this tragedy affected the victims personally.
Logan didn’t take much of a hit from posting this video, and in the long run, this may have even benefitted his career and brought more people to his content. Meanwhile, other creators who have covered this story are still being hit with demonetization. Which brings us to yesterday, when Logan Paul returned to YouTube.
I was tattooed for the first time on April 13, 2017. I was 17 years old, and I had just left my grandmother’s funeral.
People often ask me, “why are you pro-life? Why are you going on this march? Why are you against a woman’s right to choose?” These are huge questions, to which I have no simple answer.
The Evil Empire of Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have found themselves in the Super Bowl for the eighth time in the last 17 years.
The debate around gaming’s health benefits and adverse effects is again taking center stage with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recent proposal to add “Gaming Disorder” to its list of diseases.
Today I had a mission. My job was to wake up, and all day long, only read and watch right-wing media.
President Geoffrey S. Mearns has advocated to bridge the gap between Ball State and the greater Muncie community throughout his time in office.
On their previous two albums, Frankie Cosmos painted amateur musical portraits of youthful urban life, but there was always the tiniest bit of predictability. “Jesse” could be the entryway to a new, more in-depth world of musicality for the group. The song’s structure and Kline’s vocals have helped the outfit paint with more elaborate colors and textures than we’ve heard from them before.
It’s confusing that these audiences will accept Ewoks and Mon Calamari from distant planets, but it is somehow a leftist stretch for the film to feature people with Asian-coded features or characters who are black like Finn. We’re running around with lightsabers and droids, but this diverse casting for our favorite science fiction fantasy is just too unrealistic.
“When ignorance and bigotry is aligned with power it is a dangerous force in our country.”
Out of all of the organizations out there, a writers' workshop would be the one that I would least expect to discriminate against someone simply for the way that they look.
I read books about African-American stories and by African-American authors. It is often too easy to become comfortable in my privilege and to not be aware of what is happening to people because of their skin color.
I hadn’t talked to you much that day, and I won’t lie, I was a little worried. You had been sending me very troubling text messages about how you “couldn’t cope anymore”, and when I reminded you of all the beautiful things in the world, you said it still wasn’t enough to not make you want to die. Still, I sat and talked you through your episode. Because I love you and I’d done it many times before.
