Just watch the video, and then answer the question below. Question: What's your read on this story? Were the cops justified in their actions? Should the professor have just shut up and complied? What would you do? ASU professor assaulted officer, arrested in Tempe [AZ Central]

I'm a "bandwagon Redskins fan", which is a nice way of saying "I only care if they're having a.500 or better season which won't ever happen again as long as Robert Griffin III only has one good knee". Seriously, football is just a break between the NBA offseason and an annual respite from baseball. Show More Summary
I have a daughter now, as anyone who's read this blog the past couple of years already knows. While I don't love my daughter any more than I do my sons, I do love her differently. My concerns about her future, and what/how I as her father...Show More Summary

I'm not a San Antonio Spurs fan, but I'm definitely a "Miami Heat Fan" hater, so naturally I was happy to see Tim Duncan and Co. raise the trophy last night. In a 5 game series that wasn't even as close as the final tally indicated,Show More Summary
As a guy married for nearly 13 years, I can tell you marriage is work. Mix in kids, and it damn near becomes a 2nd day job, albeit one with great benefits. The adage goes "it's cheaper to keep her", which is a nice way of telling men they're better off staying married than getting divorced and being forced to live in a van down by the river.

While everyone else was busy watching the Spurs beat the tracks off the Heat last night, a similar a$$whipping was taking place in the world of politics.It's the earthquake that rocked the GOP. In a year when mainstream Republicans have...Show More Summary
A lot to cover today, here's the rundown...Michelle Obama's Maya Angelou Speech - Seriously, why weren't we lucky enough to have this woman as POTUS instead of her increasingly disappointing husband? Powerful stuff here, and real talk, prolly the blackest moment we've witness during the Obama Presidency. Show More Summary
In what is shaping up to be a banner year for race relations, two Memphis ara cotton gin employees (who knew?) are alleging racial discrimination, and thankfully have the evidence to prove it.The recording sounds like something fromShow More Summary
I prefer my racism blatant, not disguised or covert. I'm 40 years old now, so it's a lot easier to have someone make it quite clear where they stand as opposed to me having to guess. I'm just black lazy like that. Because blackness.With that said, there are varying degrees of racism. Show More Summary

I've said it several times here: I just don't understand why people blow good money at scrip clubs. I don't knock people who frequent such places, it's just not my thing (obviously because I'm MARRIED!) and never was. That said, it's understood that the women there don't actually like you, nor are they willing to sleep with you. Show More Summary
For reasons unbeknownst to me, my wife and I ended up watching the Billboard Music Awards 2014 last night. When I say "for reasons unbeknownst to me", what I actually mean is that I didn't know 90% of the artists that "performed" last night. Show More Summary
