Will someone please tell me
why Black people are so protective of Beyonce? She does everything possible to
distance herself from being/looking Black. If her skin gets any lighter/her
nose gets any smaller and her hair gets any straighter/blonder, she’ll be
looking like Nicole Kidman. By the way! That dress she wore to the Met was a
disgrace. What kind of an example is she setting for young Black girls? Who
happen to be the majority of her fan base. What high school did she graduate
from? Anybody know? She never seems to have much to say.

For years, scientists in medical circles have been working on generating human organs from stem cells. Using the same principles to create meat belonged to the realms of disquieting science fiction and academic journals — until August 2013, when scientists from the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, led by Mark Post and funded by Google co-founder Sergey Brin, conducted a public tasting of a hamburger cultured out of muscle stem cells. “Close to meat, but not that juicy” was one taster’s judgment. No story was complete without reporting the experiment’s price tag: $325,000.
