Who killed Sandra Bland?

sandra bland

She traveled from Chicago to Texas to interview for her dream job. She got the job but she died before she could start work. She was pulled over by the police for illegal lane usage. They say she became combative and they threw her on the ground and cuffed. While in custody they say she committed suicide. Something does not add up. Read the linked story and share your thoughts.

Bill Cosby has gone from Number One Dad to Public Enemy Number One

Did Bill Cosby rape over 30 women? He has been accused of this and he has been found guilty by the court of public opinion. Those who still want proof have been effectively stoned to death by that court. Whoopi Goldberg had her doubts, but she was subject to death threats for not getting on the same page with the masses. She got her”mind right” and now she can go and sin no more. There is no room for doubt he is guilty by public decree, but is it wrong to question the women or their motives? Is it wrong to think perhaps some of these women willingly engaged in sex with Cosby? Is it wrong to ask how did this black man rape so many white women and none of these women went to the police? I am not a Cosby apologist I just believe there are a lot of questions that need to be asked and not just to Cosby.

Actress Chastity Dotson turns activist

Young Starlet Turn Tech Activist
Shocked by the rising number of police brutality cases, Single Ladies star Chastity Dotson created ZAFA Protection System. ZPS is a free mobile application that sends out an alert to members of a community when there is a crime. This global neighborhood watch app allows citizens to come together, community build, and protect one another against incidents of violence.
Dotson is a multi-faceted artist and activist based in Los Angeles. She got her start in entertainment after studying at University of Southern California’s BFA acting program. Not long after graduating, she landed a role in the World Premiere of Charlayne Woodard’s “Flight” at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, which drew rave reviews from the Daily Variety who called her “an arresting blend of vulnerability and steel will.” She then starred in Oliver Mayer’s “Young Valiant” where she played the title role of a fourteen-year old boy, and was celebrated as a “small miracle” by the LA Weekly.
Chastity has written and performed seven one-woman shows internationally and is now set to star in Marivaux’s The False Servant at the Odyssey in Culver City, CA in July.
Dotson’s growing list of screen performances includes: Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, N3mbers, CSI NY, Grey’s Anatomy, Raising the Bar, Without a Trace, Veronica Mars, Bones, The Mentalist, BET’s Single Ladies and most recently as a guest star on Major Crimes for TNT.
But, like so many others, Dotson was shaken by the violence of police officers against civilians. So, she sought out funding on Go Fund Me to create a neighborhood watch app—and reached her goal in three short weeks. With that funding Dotson created ZAFA Protection System or ZPS.
Benefits of ZPS are:
• ZAFA empowers communities to call upon each other to witness and protect against violent offenders
• ZAFA ensures that there is always a witness or a helper at the crime scene
• ZAFA allows for the immediate upload of footage to remote servers securing it in case of confiscations
• ZAFA has an alert system that covers up to 20 miles, with real time GPS coordinates and directions to the incident
• When a ZAFA alert is sent it not only gives the person in trouble the location of the nearest user but it also allows the user to communicate with the victim letting them know help is on the way
• ZAFA offers alert buttons that cover multiple violent offenses not just police brutality

This is just the beginning for the young tech entrepreneur, “Once the app is released, I plan to create ZAFA trackers. GPS buttons that will communicate remotely with the app. ZAFA will then be able to be used in the case of child abductions. Everyone deserves to be protected.”
The app will be available for free download on iPhone and Android. For more info, please visit zafaprotection.com.

What do you do when your church sends you a collection notice?

church delinquency letter
I saw this on (www.theoldblackchurch.blogsspot.com) and I must admit I was taken aback. When did churches start sending collection notices? The pastor of this church is Dr. BR Fulton and the church is located in Tampa Florida. So what do you do when you receive this kind of notice? Answer: find another church. To put it mildly this is nonsense. To put it bluntly this is not how Christians treat other Christians. You need to know the difference between Christians and Church Folks. I love Christians, but I can’t stand Church folks. Some will ask what’s the difference?

Well here’s a list:

Church folks tear down other members.

Christians build up everyone they meet.

Church folks act like they are happy for your successes.

Christians really are actually happy for your success.

Church folks are extremely critical.

Christians will give correction, but they will always do it in love.

Church folks will give big so they can be viewed as big shots.

Christians cheerfully give what they have no matter how much it is.

Church folks worry and fret about what they wear to church.

Christians realize what is in the inside is more important than what is on the outside.

Church folks have a need to be seen doing good things.

Christians simply do good things

Church folks will come and see you when you are sick and tell everybody they did it.

Christians will come and see you, bring you a meal, and clean your house and not tell a soul.

Church folks say they love everybody.

Christians actually show love for everybody.

Should we erase the Confederacy from history?

The Civil War was not fought to free the slaves. The War was fought to save the Union. The North had to pay for their laborers and the South could buy their labor and own it for a lifetime. There were slaves in the North, but in the South they were the backbone of the labor force. The South lost the War, but they have held own to their symbols of their glory days. From flags to statues the south is adorned with relics from the good old days. The symbols that they worship are viewed as symbols of oppression for some. So the question is should all of these symbols be removed from the public square? Should schools named after Confederates be renamed? Do we want to erase the Confederacy from history?
