Make No Excuses For Kathy Griffin -- OR President Trump

I have a point to make about Kathy Griffin, but let’s get something necessary out of the way first.

Let’s Be Careful With All The Violence Threats By Public Officials

I once professed fright at the loose talk about assassination of President Obama among various far right zealots. This reached probably a “peak” (or low) when radio firebrand Michael Savage and major Trump supporter referred to the President as “a rabid dog that should be dealt with accordingly” – a direct quote which I personally heard.

If Nobody Reported On Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, Did It Really Happen?

As Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month draws to a close, I question how many of us realized it even happened. A quick search of the term “Asian” on my hometown newspaper’s website returned negligible results for May: namely that Asian Food Fest happened and that Judge Thapar was appointed to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Off With Her Head!

So, comedienne Kathy Griffin’s head appears to be on the chopping block. That’s a metaphor, of course, and as of now it is even inaccurate, since CNN has already parted ways with Griffin (she co-hosted their New Year’s Eve show withShow More Summary

A Secret To Leadership In Congress: Lean To The Green ($)

Trump Doesn't Understand How Story Sources Work And That's A Problem

Have you ever watched a gangster film? What about a political thriller? Within each film comes a potential trial of some form or another. What many criminal investigations need to make a case is the various sources that provide information. President...Show More Summary

Being Convinced We're Always Right Is Our Next National Emergency

It’s no secret that we’ve reached the apex of the the age of entitlement. Social media and political polarization have pushed people on either side of the spectrum to dig in their heels and refuse the other side. We’ve come to value being right more than being humble. Show More Summary

Terry Frei's Tweet About An Asian Winning The Indy 500 Shouldn't Surprise You

We fail if we do not talk to Terry Frei. He was fired as a newspaper columnist by the Denver Post after saying he was “very uncomfortable” that Takuma Sato, who came from Japan, won the Indianapolis 500 this year, the first time that has occurred. Show More Summary

Misremembering What Makes Us Fat

There is a particular irony in marking the occasion of Memorial Day by misremembering history. TIME Magazine’s cover story about why diets fail so many of us, and why so many of us are fat, is thus almost as ironic as it is interesting. Show More Summary

If JFK Was The First Television President, Donald Trump Will Be The Last

At a Trump rally in Green Bay, Wis. in October 2016, graduate student Jasmine Minor was told by a woman standing with her daughter, “You’re not welcome here … Go back to where you came from.” Minor, a 23-year-old black woman, and her...Show More Summary

Immigrants Make America Great, Because Immigrants Made America

Immigrants make America great. Our railroads, our steel skyscrapers, our farming and beef industries were all built by immigrants. Some, like the Spanish cattle pioneer Simon de Arocha, became titans. Some, like the Chinese workers who built the transcontinental railroads, were all but silenced. Show More Summary

You may have noticed that Teen Vogue is getting political. At first, this may seem surprising. But to those who have been following the changes at the magazine, it was inevitable.
