Truth can be found in the strangest places

Obviously, pop culture ephemera is often an inefficient (and, in some cases, grossly inappropriate) medium for explaining the intricacies of complex sociopolitical conflicts. But this episode, which was first broadcast on Nov. 11, 1991, resonates deeply in the wake of Ferguson (Jazz was worried about being shot six times; according to an autopsy reports, Michael Brown actually was). The sad fact is that Fresh Prince captured what remains, 23 years later, a disturbing truth for black Americans: They’re constantly in jeopardy for no other reason than “walking while black.” 

And this was true well before the death of Michael Brown

What your Facebook statuses say about your personality

Gone are the days in which we turned to physical diaries, burn books or private online forums to unleash a flood of our ecstatic or tormented thoughts. Today, we post these thoughts on social media, most prominently on none other than good old Facebook.

According to a recent University of Pennsylvania study, we take to Facebook to post exactly how we feel, not how we want others to think we feel —at least when you consider the words and emoticons people use to describe themselves on Facebook.
