The struggle to eliminate high-cost predatory debt is a daunting one—particularly for Black America. As access to affordable credit, loans and mortgages seem ever elusive across the country, lying in wait are countless predatory lenders eager to fill the personal finance void. But in recent days, two unrelated developments awarded consumers more than $200 million in victories against high-cost private student loans and restitution for triple-digit interest payday loans.

When we go to a restaurant, for example, I’m very simple in what...

6/27/2019 8:35:49 AM

It remains the most widely used anesthetic in U.S. hospitals, but many patients still remember propofol as the drug that killed Michael Jackson. Most are no longer afraid of it, doctors say, though many still ask if they will get “the Michael Jackson drug” before an operation. And most of them will. Jackson died 10 years ago at his Los Angeles home after receiving a lethal dose of the drug intended for use only during surgery and other medical procedures—not for insomnia. As Jackson rehearsed for his comeback tour, he struggled to sleep. Prosecutors said...
