Without the forced social interaction of a high-school cafeteria or a college dorm, many adults find it hard to make new, lasting friendships. Finding yourself alone in a new city or suddenly without your former besties can be lonely and frustrating, particularly if you’ve never been a social butterfly. Fear not, for adult friendships are not only possible, but they probably aren’t as hard to cultivate as you may think! Here are some ways in which you can find new friends, long after the days of the sandbox:
(Black Politics On The Web) – The following is a statement from Kathy Times, President of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) on the recent criticism of conservative talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger for using a racial slur on the talk show. I will never forget the first time I was called the n-word. In fact, a young white man in Alabama hit me with a double dose of hate and called me a n—– b—-. It was 2002. It was my first day on a new job as an investigative reporter. It took a few seconds for the full impact of the slur to hit me. Then, it felt like I’d been sucker punched in the gut.
(Black Web 2.0) – It is my sincerest hope that the National Association of Black Journalists retools their convention site to be their organization’s premiere online destination. Can you imagine my giddiness when I entered nabj.org in my browser and was redirected to their convention site? The site is amazing. The confidence it inspires is making me count my pennies to join the Association after years of inactivity. Unlike their previous site, the convention site is forward thinking and like a digital Nirvana. [Until they do retool the convention site, they've linked to the "official" website that houses more detailed information about the organization.]
(News One) – Citing the hiring of former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer as a missed opportunity by CNN to put a non-white anchor on in primetime, the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) has fired off a public letter aimed not just at CNN, but all of the cable news networks for “moving backward” on diversity.
