    From the New York Times:

    As camps go, the Summer Program in Mathematical Problem Solving might sound like a recipe for misery: six hours of head-scratching math instruction each day and nights in a college dorm far from home.

    From Clutch:

    Contrary to popular belief, all women do not want to have children. Shocking, I know.

    I was watching the Today Show this morning, when they profiled Lilit Marcus, a woman who proudly does not want to have children. Although she is fairly certain in her decision, many have told her that she'll probably change her mind...eventually. Read more here.

    From Essence:


    Way before my 12-year-old was a big ol', tall-as-I-am thang, she was an adorable baby who happened to bear the burden of the slowest-growing stuff you've ever seen sprout from somebody's scalp. Her hair started out promising enough. After the crown of her head poked through into the brave new world, the doctor smiled and said, "Look at all that curly brown hair!

    But then she went through that balding phase that a lot of Black babies endure, when the back of their heads look like some really mean prankster replaced their hair with patches of wooly-looking carpet. I remember putting my hand out and praying over her precious little head whenever she would toddle by. That hair was a challenge and only the Lord could fix it.

    From the New York Times:

    For more than a decade, anthropologists and historians pieced together the history of a short-lived African-American community that was snuffed out in the 1850s by the creation of Central Park. They combed vital records and tax documents, scanned parkland using radar and studied soil borings.

    From USA Today:

    The NAACP plans a big push to increase minority turnout in the 2012 elections, hoping to gain political influence and turn back what the civil rights group says are efforts in various states to deny minorities the right to vote. To do it, the group is going to reach out to black churches, fraternities and sororities as well as use sophisticated databases, social media and boost training of volunteers to include things like getting a contact for each voter they register.

    From American Progress:

    Our nation's economy is now two years into a shaky recovery following the Great Recession of 2007-2009, yet for the millions of Americans still out of work, the recovery is largely meaningless. All Americans saw significant job losses during the Great Recession and comparatively high unemployment rates persist for all population groups-none more so than African Americans.

    From the Atlanta Post:

    Hip Hop is hard on marriage. Any fame is. But what can be helpful to any union, prominent or otherwise, is meaningful work. Engaging in your own thing is a good mental health move and helps take the pressure off of a relationship. The Atlanta Post has rounded up six women who've seen beyond the current spoils of marriage to build something of their very own.

    From Salon.com:

    Staggering findings have emerged about the vast extent to which minority households were worse hit by the housing market crash than white households. Now the Department of Justice is preparing a lawsuit against Wells Fargo, the nation's largest home mortgage lender, for "allegedly preying upon African American borrowers during the housing bubble and steering them into high-cost sub-prime loans."

    From Gallup:

    President Barack Obama averaged a 43% job approval rating for the week of July 18-24, tied for the lowest weekly average of his administration. Obama's rating at this point is lower than President Bill Clinton's ratings were in the fall of 1995 when he was embroiled in a budget dispute similar to the one Obama faces now.

    From TPMDC:

    The change of heart is a time-honored part of American political theater. As public sentiments (read: polling) change, politicians often find a way to alter their positions through seemingly heart-felt rhetoric. But there are rare occasions when the change of heart is real. And according to one of the Muslim community members Herman Cain visited with Wednesday, the Republicans newfound respect for Islam is completely genuine.

    From Reuters:

    New research finds an appalling 20 to one chasm in net worth between white and black Americans, and an 18 to one gap between whites and Hispanics. The Pew Research Center found that the net worth gap has widened during the Great Recession, mainly because the housing bust disproportionately cut into the wealth of African-Americans and Hispanics.
