Among the many controversies surrounding COVID-19, the approach to education with the fall semester quickly approaching is near the top of the list. School closures at the back end of the 2019-2020 school year affected roughly 55 million students, and almost every state forced or heavily recommended the closure of public schools. Private schools generally followed suit, many actually closing before the state mandates. This estimated four-month period allowed for school districts to have somewhat...

DomesticPOLITICSCHOP

CHOP formally known as CHAZ was an occupied protest zone in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood that was created after the public outrage that came following the killing of George Floyd. This change was born out of that chaos that followed the police’s excessive use of tear gas and flash bangs repeatedly. The protestors chose to occupy the area surround the Seattle Police’s east precinct until the department caved under public pressure to leave the zone...

It is safe to say that George Floyd’s death has caused a ripple of racial consciousness throughout the world unseen since the Civil Rights movement in the 1960’s. In the past being a non-black minority (Latino & Native American) has made my feelings complicated during these times of racial unrest. I would post on social media but that would be the end of my “activism.” I chose not to protest, I chose not to march,...

I woke up to a text from a friend that said “America is on fire” last Saturday morning, I thought he was over exaggerating and speaking in hyperbole. I was wrong. Last weekend’s protests are a stark reminder of how fed up Americans are with racism and police brutality. This generation has been raised with the internet giving us visibility to worst policing our country has to offer. This current chaos is reminiscent of the...

Several years ago, before the #Metoo movement had picked up speed Harvey Weinstein was known as one of if not the most powerful Producers in the world. “Me Too” began as an online phrase to empower victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault to come forward and tell their stories. This movement gained momentum and uncovered many chilling stories of people in power, the highest profile becoming Harvey Weinstein. Harvey and his brother co-founded Miramax...

Rudy Giuliani was once revered by politicians (Democrat and Republican) for rooting out mob corruption as a New York prosecutor and holding the NYC together through our country’s worst tragedy in the 9/11 terrorist attacks as the city’s mayor. Now his name is in the headlines as his former associate Lev Parnas has been releasing statements and evidence that points in the democrat’s favor for impeachment since his arrest two months ago. Giuliani has been...

The day that twenty-two people were shot and killed in my hometown of El Paso, Texas- I could not stop staring at my ceiling fan. When someone asked me for the first time to describe August 3rd to them, somehow, that is the only image I could conjure up in my brain. A ceiling fan. Going around and around. I watched it turn in circles, as if it would just turn the opposite direction, maybe it...

On August 10, Jeffrey Epstein, billionaire financier was found unresponsive in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center.

On August 16, autopsy revealed that Epstein suffered multiple breaks in his neck—particularly the hyoid bone. According to experts, the hyoid bone in men is located near...

It’s amazing how much the world can change in 50 years. Did you know that being gay used to be a crime? Shit, it was illegal in 14 States up until 2003 when the Supreme Court ruled that criminally targeting private citizens for committing sexual acts with a member of the same sex was unconstitutional. Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and Virginia all had separate...
