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

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.
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.
The University Of Missouri football team refused to take the field this weekend. That act cast the school 1 million dollars, and today after weeks of protest the president stepped down. In his resignation speech he said this is not how change should happen, but radical acts help facilitate change and when a university starts losing money that too can be a catalyst for change.

2016 presidential contenders include: an egomaniac, a socialist, a liar, a man who can’t keep his campaign money separated from his personal money, a failed Fortune 500 executive, a man born with a silver spoon in his mouth who never learned to fight, a man who overcame the hood to perform amazing surgery, a man who can’t get along with his colleagues, a man who has a problem saying no to donuts, a man who stands proudly with lawbreakers and a man that is a military hawk. All of these people want sit in the oval office and none of them are perfect. We have that in common with them, but even if you disagree with them they are doing something. They have an idea and a commitment to this country. So as we sit on our couches with our popcorn waiting on the next shoe to drop give them a little credit for at least being willing to try.
CNN seems to be on a mission, and that is to destroy Dr. Ben Carson, They are going full throttle in pursuit of dirt on the doctor. Prior to this I really did not have Carson on my radar, but their relentless pursuit of dirt is making me take a second look at the good doctor. Politico is also doing their due diligence to take potshots at the good doctor. The doctor is the front runner and with that brings more scrutiny but where is this zeal when it comes to Donald Trump? They are afraid of Trump and not Carson, but let’s us not forget Carson said he has his anger issues under control, but I don’t think it is wise to push it.
