Donald Trump explains why 100 Black Preachers did not endorse him today

“Probably some of the Black Lives Matter folks called them up and said, ‘Oh, you shouldn’t be meeting with Trump because he believes all lives matter,’” the bombastic billionaire and 2016 Republican frontrunner said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” referring to the movement protesting against police brutality and the killing of unarmed African-Americans.”

It is interesting that he attributes their lack of support to an outside force. Not that they might have had second thoughts. Their thoughts are being controlled by others.

What do the Colorado movie shooter, the Colorado Planned Parenthood shooter and the South Carolina church shooter all have in common?

All three of these killers came into peaceful environments and killed innocent people, but they were all arrested. They were not gunned down by law enforcement. They lived to tell their stories and in the case of the Carolina coward they lived to have a Burger King meal. So let’s look at the Laquan McDonald case. He did not kill anyone. He was a teenager who brandished a small knife. He was shot sixteen times and died that night. Was it impossible to grant him the courtesy granted to the three killers listed above. Why was he treated so differently? Share your thoughts.

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.

University of Missouri President resigns, but says this is not how change should happen

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.
