A recent study, highlighted in TIME, said that interracial women are more likely to identify as multiracial than interracial men… Lauren Davenport, professor of political science at Stanford, sifted through data from tens of thousands of incoming college freshman with muti-racial backgrounds across the country.

As we first reported, Azealia went OFF in October on a door guy at Break Room 86. LAPD investigated, but we’re told the security footage alone was not enough.
