Beyond The Headlines, There's Much More To West Baltimore

npr.org — The complexities of Baltimore seem largely out of the reach of the media outlets that descend, as usual, only when certain neighborhoods burn. Birthday parties and backyard barbecues - rituals of daily life and love - seem to never make the headlines. Yet images of overturned cars claim the top spot on the evening news every time.

Obama in North Carolina: An Economic Message With a Focus on Women

theroot.com — Charlotte, N.C.: In a battleground state he won in 2008 and lost in 2012-both by close margins-President Barack Obama spoke on Wednesday, Tax Day, about economic policy, particularly how it affects working families and working women.

Should Michelle Obama Run for Office?

theroot.com — Too soon, too soon, of course. After observing close-up the kind of headwinds her husband has met in Washington, D.C., and beyond, there is absolutely no indication that first lady Michelle Obama is looking to place her own name on any ballot.

Rosa Parks Had a Radical Side: Championing the Rights of Rape Victims

theroot.com — Rosa Parks was a demure seamstress who defied a Montgomery, Ala., bus driver's order to give up her seat to a white man because -- on that particular day -- she was tired. Her spontaneous act sparked a 1955 bus boycott that launched the civil rights movement. Sound familiar? It should.

Loretta Lynch Confirmation Hearings: GOP Is Still Driving Away Black Voters

theroot.com — In recognition of Black History Month, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chair Sharon Day have released a statement in which Priebus says that "as we reflect on the generations of African Americans who contributed immensely to the fabric of our country and to the Republican Party, let us honor their legacy not just by what we say, but also in what we do."

Will holiday filmgoers remember or care about Sony’s insulting e-mails?

washingtonpost.com — Whether fans of the celebrities insulted in snarky, leaked e-mails will decide to punish Sony Pictures Entertainment by withholding box-office dollars might be the least of the beleaguered company's problems. But it is a problem in our entertainment-hungry society, where competition for attention and audience is fierce.

In a police shooting case in Charlotte, fewer headlines but familiar call for justice

washingtonpost.com — CHARLOTTE - Now it's Charlotte's turn in an unwanted spotlight. The story is familiar - white police officer, unarmed black man, a shooting and the one without the gun dead in the street. Loved ones grieve, a mother holds a Winnie the Pooh doll from a childhood not too many years past and protesters demand action.

When GOP staffer put Obama children ‘at a bar,’ it continued American tradition of trashing black females’ morality

washingtonpost.com — In keeping with the Christian theme of her self-serving apology, Elizabeth Lauten has blessedly resigned from her post as the communications director for Rep. Stephen Lee Fincher (R-Tenn.). She had said prayer showed her the error of her ways, though one would think she would not need a higher power to tell her that trashing Malia and Sasha Obama for dress and demeanor at a turkey pardoning was not the best idea.
