Would he be too dark to represent royalty? Why was that even brought up as a royal issue? It’s a pity that the subject had to [...]

We don’t know a great deal about the royal birth because details have been closely guarded, which has not stopped the British tabloids from wild speculation. "The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family," [...]
SHAME ON THE MEDIA METRO.co.uk is a news outlet in the United Kingdom. I think of it as tabloid news for the English. Using Terminology I did warn you years ago that the terminology of “mixed-race” would lead to newspaper headlines of “mixed up,” which is exactly what a new METRO series is about. In fact, it’s called Mixed Up. A current headline is “Mixed Up: ‘Racism made me feel subhuman. I used to pretend to be anything but black.’” It’s about a poor woe-is-me woman who grew up confused [...]

'What are you?' A question I get asked every week of my life, often every day. 'Well,' I say, as I begin the verbal dance I know all too well. 'I'm an actress, a writer, the Editor-in-Chief of my lifestyle brand The Tig, a pretty good cook and a firm believer in handwritten notes.'
