Even in the Ivy League, Black men are still subject to racial profiling

Earlier this month, New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow tackled the complexities of police interaction in a lengthy op-ed pegged to a Montana police officer’s fatal shooting of an unarmed methamphetamine user.

The African American writer cited the incident as just one example of how complicated police interaction can be, and the types of questions it raises. Among them: “If part of your job is to patrol ‘high crime’ areas, are you predisposed to lump in some …

Cosby, 77, was greeted with cheers and a standing ovation as he walked on stage wearing a gray sweatsuit with the words “Hello Friend” written on the front.

Milk industry fights back against ‘anti-dairy folks’

Milk industry fights back against ‘anti-dairy folks’

The milk industry is fed up with all the sourness over dairy.

As Americans continue turning away from milk, an industry group is pushing back at its critics with a social media campaign trumpeting the benefits of milk. The association says it needs to act because attitudes about milk are deteriorating more rapidly, with vegan groups, non-dairy competitors and other perceived enemies getting louder online.

Julia Kadison, CEO of Milk Processor Education Program, which represents milk companies, says the breaking …

By creating more competitive markets for health insurance exchanges, Medicare Part C and other health services, the nation can save big, says Ezekiel J. Emanuel, chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania.

After decades of false starts and frustration, free market champions should be cheering— competitive marketplaces work in health care. And no matter what your opinion of Obamacare, you have got to admit, that’s a good thing.

Sherman doubts any punishment ahead for Patriots

Sherman doubts any punishment ahead for Patriots

Relishing no longer being in the “villain” role, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is painting his team’s Super Bowl opponent as occupying that position.

He also doubts that the Patriots will be punished by the NFL if they are found guilty of doctoring footballs in the AFC championship game.

“I think the perception is the reality,” Sherman said Sunday after the defending champions arrived in Phoenix. “It is what it is. Their resume speaks for itself. The past is what the …

Tom Brady expects to talk to NFL about deflate-gate after Super Bowl

For those expecting swift and harsh justice for the New England Patriots over the deflate-gate issue, with huge suspensions for the Super Bowl, you’re likely out of luck.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reiterated during a remote Pro Bowl halftime interview with ESPN that he hasn’t spoken to the NFL about the issue and doesn’t expect to until after the Super Bowl. So unless Brady is really wrong on his assumption, you can probably put the pitchforks away for a …
