I wrote a commentary about Doc Rivers and his failing legacy with the Clippers.
He has not been able to elevate this team above their junior varsity status the way everyone thought he would, and with each successive loss — be it a game or a player — it becomes clear that it’s time for Doc Rivers to go as both a president and a coach. His decisions in both capacities have been questionable at best, and destructive at worst.

I have a confession: I secretly love 2 Chainz. OK, maybe it’s not so secretly, because my friends know that any time he appears on a song, I am going to turn the volume up as loud as it can go on his parts, and I’m going to rap along at the top of my lungs.

I need every man in my life, past, present and future, to read this.
It is so real.
We 0:00-4:43 girls aren’t supposed to have any country for men like you because you don’t deserve it. And yet here we all are. With visceral reactions to an album that reminds us how we never got to “4:44”- all you gave us was “Song Cry”.And I did. I cried.

My work MacBook arrived yesterday
I’ve been holding on to this news for the last two weeks, and now that my work laptop has arrived via FedEx, I feel like I can share my news with the world.
Yesterday was my last day working as a freelance writer for The Root. As of today, I am a full time staff writer for The Root, the site that took a chance and gave a platform to a highly opinionated hard news writer from the west. I am so grateful.
I will still be on the news desk at night, and I will still be bringing you my cutting commentary, but now I do it with a salary, benefits, and a job with a media organization that will only continue to grow.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you dreams don’t come true. They do, and sometimes they come with a brand new MacBook for you to write your success with.

The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday to rename a street that runs through southwest Los Angeles after former President Barack Obama. As luck would have it, the street runs parallel to Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, another hood classic.
