I have two very important and interesting questions that I want you to answer before AND after you read this article.
High School graduation season is approaching, and that means thousands of seniors across the country are preparing for college in the fall and a lot of them are first generation students looking for advice. Here’s a list of tips to get you through your freshman year of college.
Since I’ve been in college (2015), there’s been an ongoing internet debate about whether black college students should attend Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) or Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs). I’m sure this debate has been going on since before I began college, so what’s the big deal? Is there a difference? Isn’t a degree a degree?

Beyoncé was recently photographed stepping out with her seven-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, but it wasn’t Queen Bee who generated all the buzz. It was Blue Ivy with the big hair! Since Blue Ivy’s 2012 entrance into the world, people have been criticizing her and from her name to her looks. The list of critics ranged from your everyday internet troll to celebrity status hater. Most of the criticism has been directed at her natural hair. Many described the child’s hair as unkempt, nappy, short, and an array of other negative adjectives, but don’t let the thought of internet trolls and washed up celebs talking about an innocent child’s hair get you all worked up. There were just as many people coming to Blue Ivy’s defense!

On January 22, news broke that Chris Brown was being detained in Paris, France for rape allegations. In the wake of Lifetime’s Surviving R Kelly and the #MeToo Movement, the internet did not take the allegations against R&B singer Chris Brown lightly.

Brown’s 2009 domestic violence case was highly publicized, along with his other run-ins with the law and tumultuous relationships. Despite his rocky past, in recent years Chris Brown has been staying out of the media and trouble. Many believe this can be attributed to his new role as a father to his daughter Royalty Brown.
