The young white interviewer-dude sports the black glasses and follicularly robust beard of your basic Brooklyn hipster. But rather than favoring a tight black T-shirt for flexing his tat-covered bicepmuscles -- developed by salvaging industrial metals -- he's dressed in the tweedy wool jacket and cotton-checked shirt of a traditional academic (sans bow tie.) Thus, the mystery of this TDAmeritrade commercial begins. In what universe does a financial consultant look like this?

- How couples use Instagram to spotlight black queer love
By Sasha Lekach - Saturday Jun 24, 2017
For soon-to-marry couple Dominic Spence and Nick Gilyard, Instagram has become a place where together they show others what a young, black, queer relationship looks like.
Their joint page, @dom_and_nick, recently had a moment when the Instagram account The Way We Met profiled the 27- and 25-year-olds, who live in Brooklyn. Their photo and story of growing up in South Florida and knowing each other for many years before dating became one of the most popular posts with 17,500 likes in the past week.
"Dominic and I met as teenagers. We went to different high schools but they were close in proximity, so we had a lot of mutual friends. High school was also the time period in which we both came out to our families, although at separate times and unknowingly of each other's personal journeys. After graduating high school, life took me and Dominic in different directions. He went on to attend UCF in Orlando while I went to college in Kentucky. We reconnected one summer when I was in Orlando helping a friend move into her dorm and asked Dominic to have dinner with me. That night we talked for 4 hours and shut down the restaurant. Shortly after, Dominic asked if we could make it official and so our long distance relationship began. But the distance wouldn't be ending anytime soon. After college, I moved to New York for work and Dominic moved to D.C. to go to law school at Georgetown University. Finally, after 7 years of the back and forth, we are finally living together in Brooklyn... and engaged! Dominic and I feel lucky to have found love at such a young age. However, falling in love with another black man was scary in ways neither of us could have ever imagined. It forced us to face the very real resistance from society for being not only homosexuals but black men as well. We had to confront the stereotypes of being largely defined as uneducated, disloyal, untrustworthy, and unreliable individuals. But together we chose to rise above those prejudices and rewrite our own story- one of inspiration. We want others to see that our union is marked by achievement, love, friendship, respect, and unconditional support. We hope to encourage other black and brown men and boys everywhere to be true to who they are. And when they find love in each other's eyes, to know that their love is just as strong and beautiful as anyone else's."

- Teen slams hypocritical school dress code in the perfect senior quote
By Andrea McNeil - Monday Jun 19, 2017
High school senior Tori DiPaolo is now a hero on Twitter for using her senior quote to fight sexism.
DiPaolo's school, West Milford High in New Jersey, bans girls from wearing shoulder baring tops on most days, but the robes required for senior photos happen to show a whole lot of ... wait for it ... shoulder.
DiPaolo called attention to this blatant contradiction with a self-quote: “I’m sorry, did my shoulders distract you from reading this quote?” Read more...More about High School, Yearbook, Dress Code, Senior Photo, and Culture
- Take A Closer Look At The Amazing Character Design In “Black Panther”
By Joe Berkowitz - Monday Jun 12, 2017
The first trailer for “Black Panther” rolled out on Friday night and we are obsessed with all the fantastically original costumes on display.
When Martin Freeman’s character is asked about the fictional land of Wakanda in the opening moments of the Black Panther trailer, he mentions the following details: “textiles, shepherds, cool outfits.” There may, in fact, be textiles and shepherds in Wakanda, but it’s the cool outfits, however, that are most prominently featured in the rest of the trailer. “Cool” actually undersells it. The costumes in Black Panther are among the most memorable in the Marvel universe and beyond.
