Let’s start off by saying this woman should not have been body slammed, but the question is should she have given the officer her name? Share your thoughts.
I wrote this 4 years ago but it is still so relevant:
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.
This is far from an inclusive list. Feel free to add to the list via the comment section.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in the NBA Finals. Lebron James has taken this cast of characters on his back and placed team on the big stage. They wondered in the wilderness while James took his talents to South Beach. Owner Dan Gilbert put the “Celie” Color Purple hex on James when he left. Gilbert pointed his finger at James and said “until you do right by me every thing you touch”…well you know the rest. No, this is not a quote from Gilbert you will find his words below, but last night 5 years later he was all smiles. Yes, you can go back home and yes for the right price the owner will welcome you with open arms.
Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert posted this letter on the team’s website after LeBron James’ announcement he was leaving for the Miami Heat.
Dear Cleveland, All Of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight;
As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier. This was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his “decision” unlike anything ever “witnessed” in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment. Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.
The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you. There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you. You simply don’t deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal.
You have given so much and deserve so much more.In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:
“I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER ‘KING’ WINS ONE” You can take it to the bank.
If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our “motivation” to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels. Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there. Sorry, but that’s simply not how it works.
This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown “chosen one” sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And “who” we would want them to grow-up to become. But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called “curse” on Cleveland, Ohio.
The self-declared former “King” will be taking the “curse” with him down south. And until he does “right” by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.
Just watch. Sleep well, Cleveland. Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day….
I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only: DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue….
This morning on Twitter I looked a link to a Time magazine article. The headline said Robert Deniro gives the best commencement speech ever. I read the link and saw Deniro had told those in the creative sciences that they were
f—ed. Call me crazy but I fail to see the brilliance, and I question who are we choosing to deliver commencement addresses. The graduates have worked hard to receive their degrees and wouldn’t it be nice to give the graduates words of encouragement? No it does not have to be rosy nonsense but it certainly does not have to be you’re f—ed. Share your thoughts.
Alexis Jones-Rhodes missed graduation on May 15th. Her friends and relatives are looking for her. Read the linked sory.
Type Nigger House into Google maps and it will take you to the White House. So who did it? Why would they do it? I wish I was shocked but since 2007 we have seen overt racism aimed at the President and his family. It is not going to stop and they are vilified if they choose to share the indignities they have endured.This is just another incident. Not the first and it will not be the last.
