It has been two years and too many newspaper issues to count, but the end is near for 40 Acres and a MacBook. Not just the end as we know it for the school year but the end forever. I’m moving on to greener pastures, whether that pasture is filled with Nittany Lions, where the Fighting Tigers run...

For decades, Black people have only had a few memorable mainstream relationships that were in the public eye. The one we all seem to refer back to as the ideal marriage are The Huxtables from The Cosby Show. They had the perfect balance that all marriages aspire to. Cliff and Clair were both succes...

I have always been a fan of all things politically correct. I think the best way to avoid unnecessary confrontation is to approach any conversation you have from a respectful angle that says everything without saying anything at all. It is mature, it is classy and shows some self-control. The only time...

It is almost as if Chris Brown can’t even move on not because he doesn’t want to but because the rest of the world doesn’t want to. From twitter comedians provoking him into e-fights to thought pieces delving into the psyche of a man they will likely never meet, we can collectively agree that is...

Every era had its legend. We all know that Michael Jackson was the greatest artist of all time and our parents’ time. But the disconnect of us not being present for every moment leaves us unable to truly feel that. We weren’t there for his first album, his first music video, and his debut on the...

Being a perfectionist is exhausting. Or at least that is the impression Kanye West exudes with every passion filled rant and emotionally charged album. Since the days of him doing five beats a day for three summers – an impressive 5,400 beats in three years – to the “I See Now” era when Consequence...

Ludmya "Mia" Bourdeau Love, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York of Haitian descent is Mormon and Republican. In my short life, the one thing I have noticed about Republicans in this recent day and age is that being a Republican and Black is not easy. You are constantly bombarded with criticisms that...

Our country has never been the same since 9/11 but something that never crossed my mind was the fact that our entire world was stunned by the events of that fateful day—stunned enough to begin a worldwide phobia that would come to life should any individual so much as wear a burka, turban or hijab...

Filed under 40 Acres And A MacBook, Columns

This is easily one of the biggest cardinal sins to make in the music world, and especially the Black community - to say anything bad about Lauryn Hill is as polarizing as speaking bad about soul food. You get stares as if you are an alien that arrived from planet "You are not Black," and are passed over...

PWI V. HBCU: Different Strokes for Different Folks?

Filed under 40 Acres And A MacBook

Every day that I walk on Pace's campus I wonder what my college experience would have been like if I went to a historically black college or university (HBCU) rather than a predominantly white university (PWI). Would it be more fun, cultural or even have a more diverse selection quality-wise in men? Whether...
