"I want to also state for the record, that I understand more than anyone how passionate Windies fans are about their cricket and the intense rivalry with Australia. Which is what makes this ad. so fraudulent and bogus to begin with. There is no way in hell that a damn bucket of chicken could distract a bunch of West Indians from focusing on their cricket. (Especially in a "Test Series" with the Aussies.) So that's two strikes against the clueless ad. execs."
"Gender Across Borders is planning a series about hip-hop, resistance, and feminism for mid-January. We are seeking articles that tie together an analysis of race and gender with a consideration of the impact of music on social movements."

"But as the administration moves to increase oversight within the agency, the documents show how officials — some still in key positions — used their role as overseers to cover up evidence of mistreatment, deflect scrutiny by the news media or prepare exculpatory public statements after gathering facts that pointed to substandard care or abuse."
"If enacted, the proposed legislation could effectively forbid all Iranians from immigrating, visiting, or studying in the United States. Individuals seeking political or religious asylum as well as those requiring emergency medical treatment may be exempt from the provisions."
"I am so disgusted by this news because it is such a blatant example of the sexism, racism and classism that permeate reality TV. Everything about that pitch — a "nice" white middle-class lady and her husband versus a phalanx of black welfare queens with sinister motives — is designed to titillate the sensibilities of status-anxious suburbanites. And because it's a "beauty college" — never mind that the people who graduate these schools are trained, skilled businesspeople — there's the extra angle that oh, these women sure are dumb for dreaming of a career doing permanent waves."
