In the early 1800s, more opinions were being voiced about the treatment of the African-Americans. An educated African-American by the name of David Walker voiced his opinion about his communities need for equal liberties and all of the hypocrisy that was being ignored by others. For instance, in a paper, it was said, “‘The Turks are the most by bears people in the world – they treat the Greeks more like brute than human beings.’ And in the same paper was an advertisement, which said: ‘Eight well-built Virginia and Maryland Negro fellows and for wenches will positively be sold this day, to the highest bidder’” (Walker, 1829, p.177).

In the summer of 1845, Frederick decided to fulfill a dream he had long held, to travel throughout England (5). Even though he was forced to stay in the steerage, second-class, during his trip overseas he was extremely excited to finally go to Britain (8, 9).

There are no two words in the sports dictionary that make me cringe more than “franchise tag”. So, when Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller posted on his Instagram Thursday that there is “No Chance” he’d play under the franchise tag next season, I was filled with smug satisfaction — and reminded how ridiculous the concept of the franchise tag really is. To an outsider, myself included, Miller’s rejection of the Broncos’ offer was baffling, at first. A six-year, $114.5 million contract (reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter) would have me whipping out my pen and asking where to sign.

Cleaver first grew aware of his status as a Black American at San Quentin prison. He instantly hated the white oppressors and America’s elevated slavery. Resenting “how the white man…used the black woman” in the days of slavery, Cleaver rapes a white girl, spitting on the white man’s laws, and reaping pleasure from “defiling his women. ”1 He repudiates the notion that black men find white women attractive; rather, the white supremacy drills its idea of beauty into the black man simply by its omnipresence.
On that day in 1999, Michael Mudd, vice president of Kraft, did "the unthinkable" during his speech — he drew a connection between processed foods and cigarettes. We no longer condone cigarette ads for teens, having clearly established the health hazards associated with smoking, despite decades-long denials from the
