My best buddy played all his life, through college, and 6 years in the league. The shit he goes through now on a day to day basis with his brain, in his late 30's, made him tell me the other day, “If I knew I would end up like this, I would have never played.” Needless to say, my two boys will never play.

Honestly, I think I’m only still watching the NFL for the same reason I’m still on Facebook: social pressure. Like 80 percent of my friend group cares about these games, our fantasy league has been a great way for my ever-sprawling college-era clan to keep in touch, it’s a good thing to chat with my dad about when I…

Some employers are exploiting the fact that there isn't anywhere else to go. Forget the days of a bonus, raise, or even a holiday party. I'm not talking about singling people out for bad performance either, it was company wide. It's hard to stay motivated when you're watching business owners purchase a 4th vacation…

Rock understands there’s a Wanda Sykes best black friend category, but there’s also an Asian graphic designer or accountant or Latino helper or service category. There are no good options for POC performers. I’m glad…

I don’t know if you’re trolling, but I’ll answer this seriously. First off, where did you get that information? Secondly, “Asians” is a huge and diverse population. I understand that East Asians and Indians are comparatively better off economically than other Asians, especially since the majority of Americans from…

Chris Rock is very funny, but has a history of misogyny, homophobia, and flat-out racism. Guy made a movie called Good Hair, about how black hair is perceived as shitty, then wonders why Hollywood doesn’t want to cast more black roles. Then the buck-toothed fuck shits on little children. Rock, you made corny jokes…
