Missing Black and Latinx Teens Need Our Attention

Last week, the Washington, D.C. Police Department informed the public that around 10 Black and brown teenage girls had gone missing. According to The Washington Post, the girls had gone missing in January, as had around 200 other individuals (apparently typical for the DC area). There has been no spike in missing children–the police are just using social media to publicize the story. However, this story is important due to the lack of media attention around missing Black and Latinx children.

Why I’m tired of white gay men telling queer stories

A few days ago, it was announced that Ryan Murphy, the mind behind queer favorites like Glee and American Horror Story, is developing a show slated for 2018 called Pose that will explore 80s LGBTQ ball culture.

If only old Kanye was here to comment on the conditions facing young people under the Trump Administration. Then, we might have some public dialogue about it.

From the moment of Kanye West’s now infamous concert rant, the multi-platinum rapper  made it clear that he was #teamTrump. But recently, Kanye deleted any trace of his support for Trump from his social media. I can only hope he learned his lesson, after Kanye’s huge fan base of diverse young people were greatly disappointed by his Trump comments. Though Hillary Clinton received a lot of criticism going into and during the course of the 2016 election, young people overwhelmingly supported Clinton over  Trump.  If it wasn’t already apparent during his ongoing attacks both on the campaign trail and as POTUS, Donald Trump doesn’t care  about the consequences of his extremely unpopular and damaging policies his administration has already implemented.

In the remixed version of the old Kanye West: Donald Trump does not care about young people. If he did, he wouldn’t be trying to take away our health care.

GOP Looks To Undo Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Program

As part of her campaign to help fight childhood obesity, Michelle Obama introduced the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act during the 2012-2013 school-year. Under this program, school lunches became healthier by replacing high sodium and otherwise unhealthy foods with fruits and other options.

Many students wondered what happened to their favorite snacks and GOP lawmakers were infuriated at what they considered government over-involvement. With a new administration in the White House, they’re looking to force Obama’s system out and re-establish the old guard.
