Laremy Tunsil is the definition of a cautionary tale

Laremy Tunsil is now a Miami Dolphin. He went 13th in the NFL draft. He had hopes of going earlier, but his hopes were dashed when shortly before the draft someone posted a video of him with a gas mask bong. He looked like he was feeling no pain and having a good time. He like so many people chronicle all aspects of their lives and share their exploits with their friends, but what happens when friends become enemies? They post something that they know will hurt you at a time that can change the course of your life…just ask Laremy Tunsil.

Hillary Clinton and Bill de Blasio joke about CP time, and frankly it is not funny


Not feeling the racial humor. Saw this on Twitter but it did not make it to the news. Imagine if Donald Trump said it. Clinton and De Blasio need to dial it back. They think they have a black pass but they don’t have a right to make this joke and more people need to say it. Share your thoughts.

Were Wendy Bell’s comments racial or racist?

Today I have been reading stories about the dismissal of Wendy Bell from her anchor chair in Pittsburgh. She expressed her opinion on her Facebook page and some interpreted her comments as racist and others viewed them as racial. I read her comments and her comments were harsh but not racist. Is it possible to discuss racial issues without being accused of being a racist? Is it possible for a white person to make a racial observation without being branded a racist? Share your thoughts.
