This year's Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, will be the first one played outdoors in a cold climate, and could be the first one played in the snow. Fans love the idea of the game being played in the elements and believe bad weather is part of the football experience. But there's one other big part of the football experience that will not happen at the Super Bowl – and that's tailgating in the parking lot before the game.
The head of the NFL's Super Bowl committee announced that due to the heightened security planned in and around the stadium, no tailgating will be allowed. Only 13,000 parking spots will be available to fans, and each car and its occupants must remain inside the lines of the parking spot.
This, of course, means no buffet tables, barbecues or touch football games. Fans will be allowed to eat and drink in the parking lot, but they have to remain inside their parking spot, so no lounge chairs or tents can be set up. It's estimated that close to 80 percent of ticket-holders will get to the game via some sort of public transportation.
Black Girls Rock TV show founder Beverly Bond has finally responded to the #WhitegirlsRock hashtag that started trending on Twitter.
In an essay on The Root, Bond says she's a "humanist" who believes that "we all" rock. But she does say that the Black Girls Rock should get to have their own TV show and concert without anyone else catching feelings. "White women's beauty, talent, diversity and worldly contributions are affirmed everywhere: on billboards, on television, in magazines and in textbooks," argues Bond, adding, "However, the breadth and depth of the beauty, intellect, work and legacy of black women is often marginalized."
And as to the claims that Black Girls Rock promoted reverse racism, Bond says those who say that "fail to acknowledge the history of racism in media including the perpetual absence of diverse stories and representations of black women. They also fail to recognize that this absence impacts the way women and girls of color, around the world, see and value themselves."
