Husain Abdullah flagged on MNF for praying?

Tim Tebow was known for offering a prayer of thanksgiving for good plays he made in college and in the NFL. He popularized “Tebowing”. He was not penalized, but last night Husain Abdullah offered up an act of thanksgiving and he was rewarded with a 15 yard penalty. Can we say double standard. Share your thoughts.

Mother of beheader Alton Nolan claims he was a “good boy”

Alton Nolan was a disgruntled worker who beheaded one of his co-workers. This sentence sounds unbelievable but sadly we are witnessing a spike in barbaric acts. We saw the beheading of two journalists committed at the hands of the terrorist group ISIS, but it is harder to take when we hear this act was committed in our country. On this video Nolan’s mother tells us that her son was raised in a loving home and he is a good boy. She says there are two sides to every story, but what side could justify this act? Nolan might have felt he deserved a raise and he might have felt disrespected in the worplace but nothing he could say could justify this. So his mother might be right. He might have been a good boy but he grew up to be a badman.

Did you watch Blackish last night?

I watched the ABC new sitcom Blackish last night. Some have compared the show to the old Cosby show but there is no comparision. Sure both shows feature upwardly mobile black people but that is where the similarities end. The Cosby show was simply a funny show about a family who happened to be black. they were not ringing their hands questioning their success. They worked hard to get what they had and they enjoyed it. From the title of the show you know they will be questioning their identity and that is what they did last night. It will be interesting to see where they go with this theme over the season. Did you see the how? Share your thoughts.
