Nina Simone and me: An artist and activist revisited

April 17, 2017

(CNN)I was surfing online when I stumbled upon a mural in Baltimore painted by artist Ernest Shaw. It’s a three-headed portrait of civil rights icons: James Baldwin, Malcolm X and, of course, Nina Simone. Even within the boundaries of my computer screen, the painting on the side of a building at 401 Lafayette Street was powerful. Curious that the artist had chosen Simone as part of the trifecta, I dialed Shaw, a 41-year-old teacher at the Maryland Academy of Technology & Health …

United Airlines, David Dao, And The Way We Blame

April 12, 2017

There are some misfortunes that seem so inevitable that their occurrence is a surprise on two levels that nothing was done to prevent what happened, and, perversely, that it did not happen sooner. A sports disappointment, however it may feel in the moment, is a trivial but illustrative example; another instance, far more serious, is the violent ejection of Dr. David Dao from a United Airlines flight after he declined to give up his seat so that United personnel could take it, and, in …

… rival that specializes in intimate messaging. But Stories don’t make sense on a platform with years and years of social baggage. Facebook’s algorithms are smart enough to keep your News Feed filled with people and brands you actually enjoy interacting with, but Stories are a bit messier. They’re supposed to depict you unfiltered, in the moment which doesn’t really work if your audience includes the kid from your middle school English class, your high school economics …

… out. We can all relate in some way because using a range of tongs, tools and potions to achieve the styles of the moment has always been a basic activity.

Social media has turned me into a sexual oversharer

March 24, 2017

Image: Christopher Mineses / mashable I’m a millennial and I can’t stop oversharing about my sex life. And, while I hate to point the finger, I blame social media. I first realised I was a sexual oversharer during a pretty uncomfortable moment with a new housemate someone I barely knew, but was trying to get to know. As I sipped my first coffee of the day, I leant across and told my new housemate something Id told other friends just days previous. I described, in graphic detail, a …
