Kanye on Vogue Cover

I feel like I have a personal relationship with Kanye West. It’s as though he’s my brother and when he does something dumb I want to smack him on the back of the head. But, admittedly when he does a good job, I want to pat him on the back. He embodies […]

Black in Seattle: Demographics

African Americans account for 12% of the US population. That seems low to me. Let’s make some people, people! (I digress)
