Oh Dang! I Broke My Glasses Oh Dang! I Broke My Glasses
By Joshua Weitz

I've always been a reprezenta of "geek chic" even before Hollywood fashionistas and celebrity stylist coined and popularized it. Thick framed spectacles appealed to me...
Will we see justice for Oscar Grant? Will we see justice for Oscar Grant?
By Zoneil Maharaj

Amidst the New Year’s Eve revelry, something awful, disgusting and incredibly fucked up happened in Oakland: Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old unarmed man was shot and killed by a BART police officer...
YM Blog-A-Thon: A Hope-fuelled Diligence YM Blog-A-Thon: A Hope-fuelled Diligence
By La Toya Tooles

People of color arose on Nov. 5 feeling different. It seemed as if birds chirped in harmony, neighbors greeted one another in victory, and in a city like San Francisco, the sky was a crisp, clear blue. People of color felt like they now owned a part of America...
Youth Media Blog-A-Thon: Why I'm Voting for Obama Youth Media Blog-A-Thon: Why I'm Voting for Obama
By Darren Chapel

This is an election that Americans will look back on as a turning point when the U.S. began to make serious social changes and think deeper about the impact of our foreign policy decisions. I'm tired of the rest of the world hating us and thinking we're all red-necks from the "Heartland"...

By Gabby Wooden

I wanna get dirty, so dirty you cringe. Thats right, I'm talking I wanna drop the words "penis" and "vagina"...a lot...just 'cause i can. Sit back fools, and read on only if you can handle it. Because right now I'm fully about to enforce my first amendment rights. Penis and vagina...
YM Blog-a-Thon: I now pronounce you Man and Man YM Blog-a-Thon: I now pronounce you Man and Man

YM Blog-a-Thon: On the corner YM Blog-a-Thon: On the corner
By Vickie Ly

Three nights out of the week, I work on the corner. No, no, I do not sell myself; just my dignity. I work in an outdoor shopping mall where I feel utterly displaced. And, while passersby stroll across the street to get their wrinkles straightened out, I stand next to my hot dog stand and smile...
YM Blog-a-Thon: Being a broke-ass journalist YM Blog-a-Thon: Being a broke-ass journalist
By Donna Tam

When I started to go to school to study journalism, I told myself that I wasn't going to make any money doing this profession. I said I was fine with not making much money, working random hours and moving to some remote part of the country to get experience. I accepted that I would never be rich...
Some honest-ass, piss-you-off shit about the Olympic torch Some honest-ass, piss-you-off shit about the Olympic torch
By Sam Devine

Remember when Mohamed Ali lit the torch? Even though he was unable to speak and shaking from Parkinson's? I'm pretty sure I saw a tear in Dad's eye that day. But there was no joy in Mudville last Wednesday and no torch in Justin Herman Plaza when the Olympic torch came to San Francisco...

The Ghetto Food Critics: Roadside BBQ The Ghetto Food Critics: Roadside BBQ
By Eric Jordan and J. Alcantara (of the Ghetto Food Critics)

When we first arrived at Arby’s, I mean, Roadside BBQ; the GFC crew was struck with confusion. Is it a fast food joint? Is it a chain restaurant? Will I get my food in a French fry basket or on a plate?
The Ghetto Food Critics: Betelnut Review The Ghetto Food Critics: Betelnut Review
By Eric Jordan, Photos by Mathew Santos

If Betelnut was an R&B song it would be sung by Ashanti. It would have a friendly presence, a catchy rhythm, melodic tone, but very little soul...
N-Bomb Please! N-Bomb Please!
By Jamaal Johnson

Yeah, I said it and most of you can stop acting like you haven’t uttered the dreadful N word. I’m only being real when I say that everyone and their dog says nigga—and it’s perhaps the most sensitive five letter word in history…
The Ghetto Food Critics: Ramblas Review The Ghetto Food Critics: Ramblas Review
By Eric Jordan (of the Ghetto Food Critics) & Photos by Matthew Santos (of the Ghetto Food Critics)

Although the energy of this low key restaurant can inspire one to dapper up a bit, the rush of emotions as you enter suddenly begin to ease when you find yourself sitting comfortably at your fancy (but no too fancy) table…
