I love it when Hip Hop works for the community. Not enough artists who make money off of the culture give back to prevent the circumstances that created the culture in the first place. You don’t see enough of this with all the noise/distractions out there regarding the culture’s image.

Thank You NAS!!!!

Yaaassss blog about this!

I wish I could reblog this from mobile without the “yas”

"…will offer scholarships to women, veterans, African-Americans, and Latinos, all groups who have historically and systematically been denied equal access to sciences."
As usual with nearly any affirmative action policy, Asians are left out of the mix. Have they not been denied equal access?

1. Good for Nas, Google, & Microsoft. This is very kind and generous.
2. While it’s certainly nice of them to do this, Nas, Google, & Microsoft haven’t taken anything from anybody, so they aren’t “giving back”, they’re just giving. Let’s be able to praise people’s generosity without implicitly calling other people thieves for not being as generous, or devaluing their charitable acts by making them seem like they’re returning stolen goods.
3. Nobody is out helping Asians because (speaking in generalities) they don’t need the help. Or, maybe they don’t need the help because they’re not being helped. Either way, ‘disadvantaged’ or not, as long as Asians continue to be successful on they’re own they’re not gonna be on the receiving end of much charity. They will just be erased because they don’t fit the preferred narrative.
4. What’s interesting is that this presumes that when some group is not ‘represented’ in close to a 1:1 ratio compared to their place in the society at large, that they’re automatically being ‘denied access’ but if that were true that they were being “systematically denied access” to science (however that’s done) it would seem that scholarships wouldn’t work. Since they’d still be kept out of schools and whatnot. The design of this charity is sort of admitting that “denied access” isn’t the problem because if it were, the charity wouldn’t work.
5. Again, this is a great thing and I’m glad they’re doing this to help encourage kids into Tech and the sciences. I want to make that clear.

Okay so my best friend is getting married in a couple of weeks and I am his best man and I have no idea what I am doing or wearing. So I asked his fiance what I should wear based on his outfit and all she told me is that he is wearing “dark jeans and a tweed blazer over his sweater.”

So what should I wear so that our outfits are congruent but also so that I don’t one-up him?

In what barn will they be having the reception?

I didn’t really want to be the guy who raises his hand to defend the right to OD in the gutter

Most guys my height get very pissy about women not wanting to date someone shorter than they are but I can’t complain cause I’d prefer not to date anyone shorter than me
