Why Scaring Teenagers Straight With Jail Time Doesn’t Get Them Back In School MP3

More than 1,000 Texas teenagers have had to spend time in jail due to missing school and not being able to pay truancy fines. While some might see this as a feasible way to scare mostly poor black and latino teenagers straight into attending school, it often has the opposite effect because students fall even farther behind: While in jail, students told BuzzFeed News, they witnessed adult inmates beating each other an...

    Why Wouldn’t You Throw To Beast Mode? MP3

    You’re probably aware of the national holiday known as the Superbowl. We sit down to try and understand all that happened on Sunday, especially why you wouldn’t just throw a pass to someone who’s nickname is Beast Mode. Team Blackness discussed all the fun that is America’s Christmas, a snowball fight in New Rochelle that went horribly awry, and D’Angelo’s revolutionary performance on Saturday Night Li...

    The Officer, The Broken Eggs, And An Act of Humanity MP3

    With all the negative stories surrounding the police these days, it’s nice to see something positive. Alabama police officer William Stacy got called to a Dollar General for a shoplifting charge. Instead of finding someone stealing makeup or jewelry, Helen Johnson was caught stealing eggs. She had placed a few in her pockets and they cracked as she began to leave. Instead of charging Johnson, Stacy bought her the e...

    All Hail Kanye West, Fighter For Creativity (Also Beyonce) MP3

    Leave it to Kanye West to make an otherwise uninspiring Grammy award show interesting. As Beck was about to accept his award for Album of the Year, Kanye looked like he was about to step onstage and interrupt him as he had Taylor Swift during the 2009 VMAs in favor of Beyonce. Although many saw it as a prank, West had some choice words in an interview later that night: When you keep on diminishing art, and not respec...

    Free Speech? Not If You’re The GOP MP3

    So you know that whole free speech thing we’re supposed to have as Americans? Well, turns out that some Republicans in North Carolina disagree. Republicans passed a last-minute budget cut that would strip $3 million from the University of North Carolina School of Law. State Sen.

    America’s Biggest Threat? White People. MP3

    As the Charleston Massacre has helped show, domestic terrorism by right-wing groups is a huge threat. And a recent study by the New America Foundation has shown that white people are America’s biggest threat: Almost twice as many people have died in attacks by right-wing groups in America than have died in attacks by Muslim extremists. Of the 26 attacks since 9/11 that the group defined as terror, 19 were carried ...
