    Time for Bird to rebuild the Pacers

    There is a consensus amongst a number of my colleagues and even some of those in the Indiana Pacers organization that I do not like Larry Bird. Yes, I have criticized him in the past, but I actually do like him as a person, even though I’m not nearly as enamored with him as a basketball executive as Pacers owner Herb Simon clearly is. For the record, Bird has always been polite to me, and generous with his time. We are roughly the same age, and as a result, both have fond memories of how physical the NBA used to be. Heck, I even bought a pair of those suede green Converse high tops he made fashionable in the 80s, so do not tell me I am simply trying to grind an axe with the man, as that just isn’t the case.

    10 men Christian women shouldn’t marry

    As women, we grow up dreaming about whom we’ll someday marry. We watch countless romantic movies and read fairy tales about Prince Charming. We have Pinterest boards for planning the big wedding day. We make lists of traits we’d love to see in a future husband, longing for Mr. Right. Often our expectations loom big. In our quest for the happily ever after, we may begin to feel like we have to settle.

    Black educators needed to teach 'Human Lives Matter!'

    The beauty of America is best seen on paper within her beautiful documents, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, but still America is so racially divided that all Americans to various degrees are racist. It may be the subtle white racism that is realized when we truly discuss “white privilege,” or it may be the super nice African-Americans who smile in the face of their white counterparts yet despise them because the dominant culture, religion and economics in America—as it is now—disfavors African-Americans.

    The ugly history behind 'religious freedom' laws

    From Ava Duvernay’s award-winning film to President Obama’s speech at the Edmond Pettus Bridge, America has remembered Selma this year. We have honored grassroots leaders who organized for years, acknowledged the sacrifices of civil rights workers, and celebrated the great achievement of the Voting Rights Act. At the same time, we have recalled the hatred and fear of white supremacy in 1960s Alabama.
