Four years ago, I gave up a broadcast journalism career in Washington, DC, to move to Ohio to go to law school. Now that I’m graduating, I’ve compiled a list of seven lessons from my law school experience for others considering embarking on this path. The list is aimed at fellow… Read full post »
Her cell phone rang soon after we were seated at the small Italian restaurant in one of those “trendy” parts of town. She pushed the strands of her long dark hair behind her ear and lifted the phone to her cheek.

It’s time for me to eat my words. The words I posted a couple of years ago on this blog about Apple computers, that is. Back in 2010, I said that while I liked my iMac, I would never buy a MacBook.
Well, now I’m sporting a new 11-inch MacBook Air. Just got it… Read full post »
I must have looked pathetic. A grown man crying on a bench outside of a train station late at night. And all because of a date that had ended badly. How lame.

Let's see, the New York Times is running a series on multiracial Americans, NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin is celebrating literary works with a biracial theme in its summer reading series, and - oh, yeah - the U.S. has a president who is the son of a white woman from… Read full post »
A funny thing happened on the way to the publishing house.
It was about 10 years ago that I decided to write a nonfiction book on the biracial experience in America. As any author will tell you, landing a book contract is a task fraught with rejection. One of… Read full post »
It’s a question confirmed bachelors face all the time: “So how come you’re not married?” With me, there's usually a follow-up: “Well, why don’t you have a girlfriend?”
They are questions I honestly don’t understand.
It’s like asking me, “W… Read full post »
It’s not an official holiday, but for some of us it might as well be.
“Loving Day,” which is now celebrated each June, honors Richard and Mildred Loving, the Virginia couple who became the subjects of the historic U.S. Supreme Court case legalizing interracial marriages… Read full post »
I am a walking dating disaster. Seriously. Here are my stats:
I’m over 40. Never been married. Never had a serious relationship. Never even went to my high school prom. I was well into my twenties the first time a woman ever spent the night with me. Now, I go… Read full post »

The federal government’s latest population estimate places the number of mult… Read full post »
Now before you get too excited - cause it ain't THAT kind of holiday - here’s what Loving Day is really all about:
