On Friday, Sept. 27, American rapper DaBaby released his second studio album titled “Kirk” only a few days after he announced it. This album came out only six months after DaBaby’s first one, “Baby on Baby,” which was released on March 1, 2019.   To say the least, 2019 was quite the year...

When I arrived at South and excitedly got ready for my first homecoming, though, I was shocked at how di...

“You’re a f---ing n----r.” To my ears, these words are filled with agony, devastation and misery. But to some, they can be used so impetuously, without a single thought of pain. As a person of color in a predominantly white community, I have encountered and witnessed many instances involvi...

While many students would love to spend the ten weeks of summer out on the pool deck, tubing in the lake or road-tripping across the country, there is an increasing pressure to use this time with a much more challenging activity: studying. After June 14, the term ‘studying’ is far from what students...

Even after almost two weeks since the Alabama abortion ban, the topic of abortion bans remains popular with the mainstream media. Although there are some things on the bill that I would have personally changed, I do agree with the overall premise of the bill. The Alabama abortion bill basically states t...
