Read the linked story and you decide is Al Roker justified or is he overreacting?

The Scandal Abortion Was a Surprise but why?

Thursday night Scandal’s main character Olivia Pope had an abortion. Silent Night was the song that played during the procedure. It was sad but not surprising. Pope is the most loved side chick in the galaxy. We have watched her antics and often celebrated them so why are we surprised when the storyline went left? I have posted a blog post from author Sophia A. Nelson. Read it and share your thoughts.


You can feel for the people of Paris and the people of Chicago too

You have the ability to have sympathy and empathy for more than one group of people at the same time. Over the last couple of days we have seen an outpouring of grief for the people of Paris. What happened Friday night is heartbreaking. The loss of life is devastating but today on Twitter a person drawing a distinction. The writer said 129 people die in Paris and the world cries, but there have bee 400 people who have died in Chicago this year. Who is crying? We have within us the ability to cry for both but we also have to look at them as two different situations. At this point we do not know the individuals who committed the Paris massacre. We know the group but not the particulars. The Chicago situation is different. We know who is doing the killing. In Chicago it is neighbor killing neighbor. People aren’t coming from another country killing the Chicagoans. This is home grown terror, and the people at home are the ones who have to address the situation.

Does the word sassy bother you?

Last night while watching Being Mary Jane I was struck by a single word used repeatedly. That word was “sassy”. Mary Jane’s boss was expressing his disappointment at her behavior and he said that she had been sassy two different times during that week. Why did they use that word in the script? it just seems that particular word is used more often to describe the behavior of black women. Share your thoughts.

Has the Age of the Agitator ended?

We just saw the president of a university resign after intense pressure from the students. The students protested, one graduate student went on a hunger strike, some faculty members walked out and the football team vowed not to play. With the pressure increasing the president had no choice. This was accomplished without the aid of an outside agitator. No Al or Jesse was anywhere to be found. No shade to Al or Jesse just a fact. People united can make a difference without the aid of an outside agitator.
