Ellen’s Emotional Reminder to Celebrate Life Every Day

In the wake of the news of Kobe Bryant’s passing along with his 13yr old daughter, Gigi and 7 other passengers, the world seems like it’s almost at a standstill. No matter how many times you read a Tweet, scroll past and Instagram post or watch the news; these untimely deaths seem surreal.

Most of us are at a loss for words full of many tears. Kobe Bryant was and still is an inspiration to us all; whether you grew up with him like I did, you were a kid emulating his moves or just a fan of his hardwork and effort.

We don’t when or where we’ll be when it’s our time to pass on. Until then love each, hug each other, and tell someone you love them!

Equifax Security Breach: Should you be worried?


Everyone should be thinking about suing Equifax, and I mean everyone – the government, its shareholders, and its customers.

Equifax, a credit-checking company that holds sensitive data belonging to over 140 million, didn’t just have one of the worst security breaches in American history; it also handled the situation like a drunk teenager trying to hide the aftermath of particularly destructive house party.

If you’re not up to speed, the company says it found out about the breach on July 29 and waited until the night of September 7 to drop an 8-K – a government filing meant to inform investors of a material event – announcing the matter.

In the meantime, the company’s CFO managed to sell shares (the stock is currently down 13% post-report). Finally, to add insult to injury, the company asked customers to check whether or not their information had been hacked by entering their social security numbers.

What’s more, as one lawyer warned, if customers access the site to check if their info was stolen, they may be accidentally agreeing to settle the matter through arbitration, rather than a class-action lawsuit.

“The key here, though, is that Mueller clearly already has enough information on these accounts – and their link to a potential crime to justify forcing [Facebook] to give up the info,” she said. “That means that he has uncovered a great deal of evidence through other avenues of Russian election interference.”

It also means that Mueller is no longer looking at Russia’s election interference from a strict counterintelligence standpoint – rather, he now believes he may be able to obtain enough evidence to charge specific foreign entities with a crime.

Former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, now a partner at Thompson Coburn LLP, said that the revelationMueller obtained a search warrant for Facebook content “may be the biggest news in the case since the Manafort raid.”

The FBI conducted a predawn July raid on the home of Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, in late July. The bureau is reportedly investigating Manafort’s financial history and overseas business dealings as part of its probe into possible collusion between the campaign and Moscow.

Are Black Women Invisible? [POST]

The Serious Consequences of Treating Black Women Like They’re Invisible

Our tragedies are considered situational and singular instead of as an issue for women of color as a whole.

Another elbow is headed straight for my face, when I say, “Excuse me, sir, I am standing here!” and a white man in a business suit says looks down and says, “Oh, I didn’t see you.”

“Of course you didn’t,” I mumble under my breath. Just another day of having to inform a random stranger of my presence and another small reminder that life as a woman of color can often feel like you’re standing right in front of people without being seen. I used to say to my friends, “One day I want to become famous enough that if I go ever missing, someone will look for me.”

On a small scale, these everyday microagressions — verbal or nonverbal slights or insults that communicate hostile messages to people based on their membership in a marginalized group — are exhausting. On a large scale, though, this erasure of black women and the challenges they face, from the public’s consciousness and media landscape, reinforces the hierarchy of which lives have value or matter.

All year, we’ve witnessed America’s transformation around issues of police violence. #BlackLivesMatter has swept the nation, with chapters in cities nationwide, and presidential hopefuls are now required to actually have adequate policy responses to issues of racism and police brutality. Even the president is talking more openly about racism. Yet it still feels like something major is missing from the conversation: Women of color are dying at the hands of the police too, and yet their names often don’t rise to the level of a breaking news chyron. The exclusion of their stories from the larger narrative of police violence leaves the impression that it’s not an issue for women of color too.

Women of color, like me, are often deemed invisible in real and consequential ways — sometimes when we move throughout the world, like when I was invisible to a man with unwieldy elbows, but more important, we are often invisible to the mainstream media. Men of color are often in a state of hyper visibility, where they are both targets of brutality and sensational media attention. Perhaps this is because it’s not hard for the mainstream media and the public to understand that implicit biases create a world where black men are often seen as physically threatening, even when they are carrying Skittles or are a 12-year-old boy with a toy gun. And while white women are dealing with everyday sexism — including catcalling, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault — women of color must contend with these issues as well as issues of racism. And yet our pain, our death, and the brutality we face often goes unseen, and our tragedies are considered situational and singular instead of as an issue for women of color as a whole.
