Fractures in the coalition of the ascendant
Huffington Post - 3 months
My close friend Andre is passionate about civil rights and is a scion of a Tuskegee University family. He's also a Donald Trump voter. Andre is a black Republican who, despite his deep misgivings about Trump's racism, misogyny, and myriad other character flaws, pulled the lever for the GOP nominee because of his deeper misgivings about Hillary Clinton. While we rarely talk politics (his wife Ashley and I are close friends and identify strongly as progressive Democrats), Andre's views are more complex than a simple left-right dichotomy. He's not a straight-ticket GOP voter, and if given the choice, he would have preferred Bernie Sanders in a heartbeat. This is why Clinton's loss served as such a stunning and sobering reminder for those of us who fell into the mantra of believing the inevitability of demographics. The election proved that changing demographics alone can't sustain a Democratic coalition. Moreover, the coalition of the ascendant is probably more nuanced than what ...

Huffington Post - 5 months
Just because Sean “Diddy” Combs is a multimillionaire doesn’t mean he’s blind to the financial hardships college students face. The music mogul donated $1 million to Howard University students who have an outstanding tuition balance on Thursday. During his Bad Boy Reunion concert in Washington, D.C., Diddy brought the historically black university’s president, Frederick A.I. Wayne, Ph.D., onstage and presented him with the check for current students “that can’t pay their financial aid.” Diddy, who attended the college when he was young and received an honorary degree in 2014, wrote in an Instagram post that his education from Howard helped “to fuel my success in business and life.”  “This scholarship will make it possible for the next generation of leaders to pursue their dreams and achieve greatness,” the former Bison wrote. “I know that Howard students are intelligent, talented, passionate, and their hard work will shape the future.

Diddy Says He Changed His Name So Many Times Because Of David Bowie
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The artist formerly known as Puff Daddy (and P. Diddy and Puffy and Sean Combs) went on "Kocktails with Khloé" last night and shared the unlikely story behind his name changes. In 1997, Diddy wanted to sample Bowie's monster hit "Let's Dance" for his soon-to-be chart-topping song "Been Around the World" featuring none other than the Notorious B.I.G. and Mase.  Diddy reminisced to Khloe that in order to "clear the sample," he had to meet with the Starman in person. "I met with him and I was so inspired ... I knew him as the white boy who was on 'Soul Train,'" he explained, "but then I started to do my research and I saw that he had all these different personalities. It kind of empowered me and gave me the confidence to have my stage persona." The business mogul continued, "A lot of people don’t understand that Puff Daddy and all that is separate from who Sean Combs is. [Bowie] was a great example of reinvention."  He even talked about how he "saw him around his wife, ...
