I owe Black women an apology

My intentions aren’t important. What’s important is that I’ve learned something, and I’m apologizing, because that’s what you do when you’ve done something wrong.


I’m going to keep learning and figuring it out and doing better. #workinprogress #risesisterrise #antiracist #wytwomen

Talking about racism is exhausting. I agree. But the truth is that I get to choose when to step into the arena. There’s a certain privilege in that. Here’s why I continue to show up.

In short, I speak up because it’s my duty and privilege to do so. Will you join me?

What’s the starting salary for graduates from WIU?

I recently learned what the average starting salary for graduates from my alma mater, Western Illinois University, and I can’t get over it. Take a look.

We have a serious problem, because these recent college graduates have a lot more student debt than I did 30 years ago.

What do you think? Is it worth it?
