Jordan Kunzika, a 21 year old black web developer, decided to do what many people would think is unthinkable and that’s turn down a great paying job from two of the largest tech giants in the world, Microsoft and Google.

According to Black Business, Kunzika is a Google Generation Scholar whose internships at Microsoft and Intel caught the eye of the Silicon Valley execs. By the time Microsoft and Google came calling, Kunzika already had other plans, so he turned them down.

Instead, Kunzika decided to take his future and the future of black business into his own hands and he, alongside two friends Brian and Justin Gerrard, decided to create their own starup business, that business is called “BAE”, it’s a dating app, that focuses on black singles within the United States, Africa and the Caribbean . In less than a year, it already has over two hundred thousand downloads.


Kunzika states: that Bae is different from other dating apps because of this proprietary algorithm that provides quality dating matches.

Death by Gentrification: Alex Nieto Killed by Hail of Police Bullets in a Changing San Francisco


A look at the case of Alex Nieto, a 28-year-old Latino man fatally shot by San Francisco police in March 2014. The police officers accused in the killing claimed that Nieto pointed a stun gun at them, which they mistook for a pistol. Officers Richard Schiff, Nathan Chew, Roger Morse and Lt. Jason Sawyer fired dozens of shots at Nieto. According to the medical examiner, he was hit by at least 10 bullets. Last month, a jury unanimously found that the police did not use excessive force in responding to Nieto. Nieto’s family had filed a federal wrongful death civil lawsuit in August 2014, arguing in court that Nieto did not act aggressively and was carrying the weapon for his job as a security guard. We speak with Adriana Camarena, a writer, community advocate and co-founder of the Justice for Alex Nieto Coalition; and author Rebecca Solnit, who wrote a piece for The Guardian headlined “Death by gentrification: the killing that shamed San Francisco.” Camarena also talks about last week’s San Francisco police killing of a homeless man, Luis Gongora, within 30 seconds of their arrival.
