Former employee blasts Twitter on lack of diversity

NEW YORK – When Leslie Miley posted an article critiquing Twitter’s diversity failings, he thought only a few friends and former colleagues would notice. But the ex-Twitter engineer’s post went viral: It sparked an apology from Twitter three days later. It also spurred a much-needed conversation around diversity efforts. Oh, and it led to a…

Lend a #HelpingHand

What it means to lend a “Helping Hand.” Typically when asked for a favor by a close friend or family member, the word “Yes” escapes our mouths before the daunting question of “How? What? When? Where? And Why?” However when a charity or non-profit asks, it seem that most people try to prolong and avoid an answer; but why? Some may see it as an inconvenience,…

New Play at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City Dares to Humanize “Straight White Men”

Posted by Scupine on November 25, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Early in “Straight White Men,” the very entertaining new play written and directed by Young Jean Lee at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City, the play’s titular siblings chance upon the home-made board game their mother had made them play when they were children, called “Privilege.”

Crudely adapted from a cast-off Monopoly set, the game flips that game’s materialism in an attempt to sensitize the boys to the special rights and benefits they were born with as straight white males. Upon drawing an “Excuses” card, one of the brothers reads aloud, “What I just said wasn't racist/sexist/homophobic because I was joking. Pay $50 to an LGBT organization.” (A line that drew one of many big laughs from the packed preview crowd, this Sunday.)

The three brothers have all…

Citing the restaurant's high-end ingredients and gold-plated grills, Zagat continues: 

This is more high-end than the everyday Korean barbecue spots, and more in line with places like Genwa …
