- San Diego Sailor Shares First Male Same-Sex ‘First Kiss’ – A San Diego man and his partner became the first male same-sex couple to be chosen for a Navy homecoming "first kiss."
- History of Lynchings in the South Documents Nearly 4,000 Names – After compiling an inventory of 3,959 lynching victims in 12 Southern states from 1877 to 1950, the Equal Justice Initiative wants to erect markers and memorials on certain sites.
- Shirley Manson perfectly nails what’s wrong with Kanye – The Garbage frontwoman has the last word on West's latest Grammys outburst
- Report: Black Girls Face Extreme Inequality At School, But Little Is Being Done About It – Black girls around the country were suspended from school six times more often than their white counterparts during the 2011-2012 school year, even though they only represent a small share of public school enrollment. Black boys also faced disproportionate rates of discipline, but to a lesser degree. They were suspended at three times the rate of white boys.
- Commentary: Where Are the Black Anti-Vaxxers? – A lot of this anti-vaccination movement is about class and choice, as much as it's about race.
