Mirror UK reports IndiGo Airlines is banning children under the age of 12 from eight rows of seating and parents are fearful that other airlines will follow suit.

Black Women Are Not Here For Being Blamed For Birth Of A Nation Failing
Black feminists caught wind of the blame for the failure of Birth of a Nation box office sales being placed on their shoulders and, quite frankly, they’re not having it.

Jay Z, Kanye West & Frank Ocean Victors In “Made In America” Lawsuit
Jay Z and Kanye West’s collaborative Watch The Throne project sparked a lawsuit over the track “Made In America,” which featured Frank Ocean on the hook. A lawsuit from Joel McDonald claiming the track was his was filed in 2014 but it was decided that singer and songwriter did not have a strong enough case to pursue the matter further. Pitchfork reports that the copyright infringement case filed by McDonald, also known as Joel Mac, was based on a song the singer released in 2009 of the same name as the Watch The Throne track. McDonald claimed that Watch The Throne stole his concept although the matter was dismissed in September 2015 in a district court. Last Friday (Oct. 7), a federal appeals court confirmed the earlier ruling by the lower court.
