A riddle for the reader: pizza boxes can be put in me but only if there is no residual grease. I also gobble up your plastic bottles, but only if you’ve taken the time to clean and rinse them and, in Princeton specifically, remove their caps.

What am I, and why am I so picky?

While not the start it was hoping for to try to defend its Ivy League title, the Tigers are still very much alive in the race, as all of the teams will play each other a second time still.

I never knew how fortunate I was to grow up in Detroit. With a population that’s 80 percent African-American, its businesses cater to the dominant demographic. Practically every major street is lined with beauty supply shops, stocked in abundance with hair extensions, conditioners, hair masks, gels, bonnets, and silk scarves — all for the purpose of protecting and beautifying Afro-textured hair.

Unbeknownst to me last Friday, as I went to take the train back from New York, I almost crossed paths with nearly 1,000 people protesting against recent instances of police brutality related to fare evasion on Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) subway lines across the city. Framed by conservative news outlets as “anti-cop,” individuals within the protests led with chants of “No NYPD on the MTA” and “How do you spell racist? N-Y-P-D” as they marched near the Barclays Center arena and jumped turnstiles en-mass.
