UPinion: Get Off The Fence - The Top 5 Reasons To Vote For Bernie Sanders

BY Robin Kilmer (@RobinKilmer) I Became a Decided Voter and You Can Too! A fence is not a comfortable thing to sit on. It is hard on your rear-end and it can also be hard on your soul.

UPinion: #imwithher | Manhattan Times

BY Juan Ignacio Rosa (@JuanRosa_NYC) Like many Democratic voters my age and younger, I #FeelTheBern. We perceive in Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination the best hope for addressing the structural inequalities that are robbing our generation of the economic security essential to achieving the ever-elusive American Dream. To be clear, […]

UPinion: Cocolo - Growing Up Black in Washington Heights

By Carl L. Clemons (@CarlLClemons) I love my hood! Many bellow this mantra but, a pertinent question would be; does the hood love back? As of late, the answer is not as clear as I would like it to be. There was a time where one would not be able to pay me to believe […]

UPinion: I ♥ Café Bustelo

BY Travis Broome The first step of my morning ritual begins with an unnecessarily high decant of the carefully measured, surprisingly tasteless, i.e. delicious, New York City tap water into the coffee pot’s ample reservoir.
