Here's Proof Truckers May Be Better Poised To Rescue Sex Trafficking Victims Than Cops
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Sex trafficking remains a largely hidden crime in the U.S., but a fleet of truck drivers across the country are leading the charge in exposing the criminals behind these acts and in freeing victims. Because the trucking industry is predominantly male, and requires workers to be on the road for extended periods of time, pimps often bring their victims to rest areas where they present the girls as willing sex workers, according to the Polaris Project. And when they’re not being targeted specifically, truck drivers often take breaks and deliver at the other prime locations -- motels, gas stations and loading docks -- where traffickers typically exploit their victims, Reuters reported. Due to their auspicious perspective, truck drivers, in many cases, have become the eyes and ears for authorities and advocacy groups seeking to identify the criminals perpetrating such crimes. In 2011, the National Human Trafficking Resource Center received 185 calls from tipsters who identified t ...

Shaun King Has Twitter Account Suspended After CNN Email Exchange
Huffington Post - over 1 year
When CNN editorial producer Andrea Lewis reached out to New York Daily News writer Shaun King on Wednesday, asking him to appear on the network, King was shocked she had the audacity to contact him.  King is also a leading voice in the Black Lives Matter movement. In August, he became the focal point of a national conversation about race when conservative website Breitbart published a report questioning his racial identity. CNN’s Don Lemon ran with the story, and King felt the network handled it poorly. “Don Lemon talked about it many times on air and really butchered it,” King told The Huffington Post. “Frankly, I was really shocked [at the invitation] because in my mind and in my heart, in August, the way he handled my story was so egregious.” So when Lewis contacted him, King shot back that he would never again appear on the network. He then posted a screenshot of their email exchange on Twitter. A version of that screenshot with contact information redacted appears be ...

Between Ratchet And Bougie: Black Creatives Discuss The State Of Black Women On TV (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - about 3 years
The conversation about the images of black women on television is one that is on-going. Not too long ago, Essence magazine released a study where respondents overwhelming agreed that the images of black women in media only "scratch the surface" and there is an "invisible middle" between the so-called ratchet images and the bougie. Actress Andrea Lewis, who created the "Black Actress" webseries, turned to her peers to dissect this topic in a roundtable discussion. Creatives including Issa Rae, creator of "Awkward Black Girl," and Lena Waithe, producer of "Dear White People," joined Lewis to share their experiences as writers, producers, and actresses working to push for new images of black people to take hold in the mainstream. "As black women we always have, we are always relegated to one image, one impression, one stereotype and that's the issue. It's really about the public perception," said Rae in one portion of the discussion. Rae expressed, although she does watch so-call ...

Issa Rae Backs New Webseries That Aims To Show Black Women As More Than Stereotypes
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Our favorite 'Awkward Black Girl' Issa Rae is on a roll dishing out project after project. Not only is she working on an HBO series, and starring in a few webseries, she's also producing and curating content on her YouTube channel. The latest project she's behind is entitled "Black Actress," and falls right in line with an issue that hits close to home for African-American actresses and creatives trying to make it in Hollywood. The webseries, created, written by and starring actress Andrea Lewis, features cameos and commentary from the likes of Tatyana Ali, Naturi Naughton, Essence Atkins, and Jenifer Lewis. "My channel started off with 'Awkward Black Girl' but I always wanted to be a curator of great content, so when I saw "Black Actress" it was just like 'wow this story is hilarious.' I know so many women that have gone through this as an actress," said Rae. The mockumentary style series centers around “Kori Bailey,” played by Lewis, as she "struggles with the pursuit of getting ...
