N.C. Sterilization Victims To Receive $10 Million In Compensation


There is no amount of financial compensation that can make up for a person being violated. But at least these people know that their pain, suffering, and violations are regretted by the entity that inflicted it upon them. I am glad that the truth has been acknowledged about these incidents. I hope that this can help lead to the eradication of some of America’s mental illness of racism.

Don’t call it a comeback…

Back in the vintage years I was with Arsenio every night that he aired. I loved him almost as much as Keenan Ivory Wayans apparently did. Where else could you catch a Presidential hopeful playing the saxophone, the hottest comedians working, a great house band and all of the most important pop culture figures. Arsenio was the first late night talkshow host who reached out to my demographic in the broadcast of his show. Our cultural mores were displayed for the world to see and learn more about. He did the same for my demographic as Bill Cosby did for upper middle class Black families. I for one will be eagerly watching this new incarnation of the Arsenio Hall show with bated breath.
