The Onion Embeds Hillary Clinton Bias, Suddenly Dies

The Onion Embeds Hillary Clinton Bias, Suddenly Dies
The Onion used to be a witty and sometimes poignant satirical publication, that is until it was purchased by Spanish language network Univision last month and things suddenly went awry. They recently published an article ostensibly satirizing people who don’t find Hillary Clinton “Inspiring” and go on to point out that she’s had a distinguished ...

Is The Race Issue Becoming Black And White?

Is The Race Issue Becoming Black And White?
I should start this off by acknowledging the obvious, that I’m super fucking white. I’m the color of a bottle of lotion. I’m whiter than mayonnaise on a croissant. That being said, growing up on the outskirts of nowhere, I also think I’m blacker than, say, the closet homosexual Scientologist Will Smith, and definitely his ...

Ashley Graham Thickens Up The Swimsuit Issue

Ashley Graham Thickens Up The Swimsuit Issue
Plus Size model Ashley Graham was named one of the three cover girls of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in what has been characterized by Ashley Graham and six other women as a watershed moment in allowing heavier women to gain acceptance in a space historically reserved for thinner ones. When this was announced, thin former ...

Peyton Manning Gets Away With Murder

Peyton Manning Gets Away With Murder
“I’m gonna drank a lotta Budweiser tonight Tracy, I promise ‘ya that.” Imagine if Cam Newton had won the Super Bowl and one of his first sentences was “I’m bout to pound a lotta Hennessy tonight.” I’d predict an impending firestorm of hate, although to be fair Cam Newton doesn’t own any liquor distributorships, as Manning does. Manning ...

Why Martin Shkreli Is Gangster

Why Martin Shkreli Is Gangster
Martin Shkreli is the cartoonishly evil capitalist who started a business which bought licenses for drugs with expired patents, and famously raised the price of one from $13 a pill to $750 per pill, which allowed him the disposable income to do what is called #ballin’. While #ballin’ Shkreli bought an album recorded by the Wu-Tang Clan ...

Kobe Bryant’s Charade Proves He’s Overrated

Kobe Bryant's Charade Proves He's Overrated
The Kobe Bryant retirement spectacle says a lot about him as a player. He’s on one of the worst teams in the league, his contract has crippled the team, and he’s totally cool with going out and shooting an abysmal percentage while taking bad shots, even though he’s now a below average player. It’s basically what ...

Let’s Talk About Police Privilege 2

Let's Talk About Police Privilege
With all the talk about privilege these days, as well as the various cultural issues tied to policing, I find it strange I haven’t heard anything mentioned about police privilege. Police indeed possess many privileges not afforded to the average civilian. It’s nearly impossible for them to be brought to trial, and if so, convicted for any ...

The Editor Of The Huffington Post Doesn't Read Books Written By White People
Chloe Angyal is the Senior Front Page Editor at The Huffington Post. She recently wrote a piece, conspicuously published on The Huffington Post, titled “I Decided Not To Read Books By White Authors For A Year.

Back In Alaska

I went back to Fairbanks Alaska for the weekend because my friend passed away from a brain aneurism while watching over his newborn puppies in his basement. A few friends offered to buy mileage tickets so everyone could be together. I texted a few friends when I was coming in to see if I could get a ...

Is Being Gay A Big Deal Or Not?

Is Being Gay A Big Deal Or Not?
          Pick one because it can’t be both. When the supreme court legalized gay marriage I celebrated, but it was a bit hampered. I knew the religious right egged into rabid ignorance by the Koch PACs would find some other issue to latch onto and generally rain on the parade of ...
