Series Review: 'When They See Us'
So... when I saw this dramatic re-telling of the ordeal of the Central Park 5 being advertised on Netflix, I was already pretty sure that it was going to be must-watch television. I was also extremely apprehensive about seeing the events through the eyes of these five kids (now grown men) and being able to emotionally process it all. The case (and the legal and societal issues it brings to the forefront) kind of hits close to home for me as a parent, and as an African-American man. I'd seen the ...

Reason First: What Should Happen to the North Face Looters?
The savages who stole over $30,000 worth of North Face merchandise are in bad company. Whether it’s in relative normalcy, or a natural disaster, or computer secrets, thieves have been more than willing to act as brutes. From the Johnstown, Pennsylvania Flood of 1889 where white people used pliers to pry gold from the mouths of the dead and snapped off ring fingers to obtain jewels, to China swiping data, to this present incident with negroes, the same idea remains the same in all incidents: seco...

10 Awesome Books About the Mafia
When it comes to organized crime, no one does it quite like the mafia. They aren't your typical street gangsters throwing up signs and making fools of themselves. They don't flag up or sell drugs on a street corner. They do things with style. They know how to wheedle their ways into business, how to make the most of their connections, and when to use force. More impressively, they do it all while wearing designer suits and driving fancy cars. Needless to say, there's a pretty good amount of peop...

5 Takeaways from the First Trailer for 'Knives Out'
For the record, I really enjoyed The Last Jedi. I thought that director Rian Johnson knocked that Star Wars story out of the park with bold narrative choices, strong visuals, and a modest, but palpable sense of humor and fun. My fellow critics appear to agree with me for, the most part, but a venomous, vocal group of Star Wars fans has nevertheless fouled much of the memory of The Last Jedi with their toxic takes on the movie. Those toxic takes have resurfaced, now that Rian Johnson is returning...
