The 2Pac biopic All Eyez on Me dropped last night, and as reactions begin to trickle in, one in particular stands out. Jada Pinkett Smith took to social media to post the following: "Forgive me...my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth.

He had to leave abruptly and it wasn't to pursue his career. I've never been to any of Pac's shows by his request. We never had an ...

Acting Attorney General says Justice Department Won’t Defend Trump’s Ban on Refugees, Travelers

Unless you've been living under a rock, you would know what transpired over the weekend with the blowback from Trump's Executive Order banning people of a specific religion from entering the country. Yes, the United States of America is now banning people from entering the country based on their religion. What kind of people are being discriminated against? Muslims.

Getting Rid of Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) May Be Harder Than Republicans Think.

I prefer to call this law the Affordable Care Act, because that's the actual name of the law, not Obamacare. The name Obamacare, in fact, is actually a term the Republican Party came up with in order to better assist them in denigrating all the good that the law does. Its true, and more nefarious, purpose is to make even people who would normally be predisposed to supporting the spirit and intention of the law, bizarrely hate it by default anyway through the use of a form of psychology that assumes by attaching the President's name to any and all references to the law, ...

Facebook Live Now Supports Browsers, and much more!

Facebook Live received browser support, analytics, and other features meant to make its video-streaming platform more appealing to broadcasters. The service was previously limited in its scope. Facebook allowed people to live-stream only via its mobile apps, didn't offer a lot of information about how videos fared on its service, and made it harder than it necessary to find a video's URL. Now all that has changed, and it almost seems like the company is trying to create a YouTube competitor that Eiffel 65 would be proud of. (Please tell me everyone knew I was referenc...

Why Clinton won’t kill the New York Mayor rumors

Hillary Clinton is not saying no. She is also not saying yes to pleas to consider running for mayor of New York.

But people who have talked with her — both former staffers and notable members of the Clinton orbit — say there’s mostly been a lot of coping with her ...
