Recently news has come out that a new nail polish is being developed, known as Undercover Nails , that will help girls in defense against sexual assault. The nail polish is designed to change color when coming into contact with common date rape drugs, so that if a woman dips her finger in her drink, she'll know whether her drink has been spiked or not.
The idea came from four young men studying Chemistry at North Carolina State University, stating, "Our goal is to…Continue
It has been decades since we last experienced a Civil Rights Movement in the United States. The U.S. is known to be the land of the free, of equality, land of opportunities, and a country with cultural diversity. If that is so, how is it that the nation has not been able to free itself of prejudice, racism/discrimination, racial profiling, and stereotypes?
Sadly, minorities continue to be looked down at by the White Supremacy. The Latino and African American populations continue…Continue

Ever get so caught up in life where you forget to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride? It hit me yesterday that I hardly ever take the time to enjoy life.
I was on my way to go to lunch, alone, which was completely different, but fine with me. As long as I had my cell phone to look at my social media, that was all that I needed to entertain me. I decided to sit outside because it was such a beautiful day, and, I never get the chance to sit outside anymore—I am always cooped…Continue
I can’t say I had a difficult childhood everything was so easy for me, I went to a great private school in my hometown, I took as many extracurricular classes as I wanted and I didn't start working until recently.
But my parents had it so different; my dad had to start working when he was 5 years old to support his mother and 4 sisters, he did this by selling copies of a comic book, selling candy on the streets and cleaning shoes, later by the age of 15 he started working in a boot…
Please don’t tell me to smile.
Please, don’t tell me to smile.
Just don’t tell me to smile.
I say, “Tell me” on the basis that most men don’t ask. They disrespectfully tell me to do so as though they control what is going on in my head.
That is beside the point though.
Perhaps, I am alone in this city and am too busy listening to the running commentary in my head to give you a wholehearted smile.
Maybe I am lonely and don’t see your face as…Continue

I see you. I see that you are hurting.
I’m sorry I didn’t better equip you with a stronger voice to tell others that you hurt.
You were taken advantage, but I am here to tell you, “it wasn’t your fault.”
You know this even as a young girl. You know this even though you are a prepubescent girl. You feel like you take too much space, the fact that you ate too much, felt confused over those nights and the possibility that things just never go as they plan i.e. guys,…Continue
