  • The MAD Choir: Controversial video rants go viral. Check out the Black Women’s Manifesto and let us know what you think. What responsibility do artists, celebrities, and public figures have (if any) to their communities of belonging? To society, in general? Preaching to the choir or promoting stereotypes? What do you think?

  • Interrogating the Source: Are citizens more or less informed in the information age? Specifically, have you heard the Illuminati Conspiracy Theory?

Is there a need to debunk all this nonsense or is there some other way to better serve truth and knowledge?

  • Rape for Ratings: Is the explosion of sexualized violence on the big and small screen representative of a monstrous reality, a Hollywood S&M fantasy, or an effective suggestion that is self-promoting?
