Billy Bush and Fox Analyst Judge Napolitano paid dearly for their Trump association

Billy Bush lost his NBC Today Show job after the Access Hollywood tape emerged showing him play the straight man to Donald Trump’s lewd conversation. Trump went on to be president. A few days ago Trump claimed the British were in on the “wiretapping” of Trump Tower. When pressed Trump said he heard it form a judge on Fox News. Judge Napolitano has been suspended from the network and Trump is still president. Association with POTUS can cost you your job.

If you have read any black history you have heard the story of Emmitt Till. Till was a 14 year old boy who took a trip down south in the 1950’s. He was from Chicago and he made the mistake of whistling at a white woman. Later that day he was dragged from a relative’s home and he was brutally murdered. His body was so bruised and battered his mother Mary Mobley made the decision to have an open casket so the world could see the vicious brutality. Now 50 years later Dana Schulz a foreigner makes the decision to do an abstract of the mangled corpse. Is there nothing sacred? This is offensive. Share your thoughts.

NBC Carmichael Show to use the n-word, but they will not be saying the n-word

In 1995 the n-word was popularized during the OJ Simpson trial. The euphemism was used so the jury would not be offended by the amount of times the word was used throughout the trial. Since that time it has been adopted as a way of saying the word while not saying the word. Now the NBC Carmichael will air in episode this spring the n-word will be flying. This all black cast feel they have right to use the word, but do they? Read the linked story and share your thoughts.

Chuck Berry’s music still sounds good today


Chuck Berry died yesterday but he has left a musical legacy that will last forever. We were just listening to a tribute on Meet the Press and his music was playing, and it still makes you want to move. I said to my husband what current music will actually stand the test of time?

Snoop Dog shoots Trump “clown” and real President Trump claps back


Snoop Dog released a video that features him shooting a Trump “clown”. His video is disrespectful but as an artist he can do it. President Trump clapped back. Do you think he was justified.

Are you ready for another round of Underground?

Last night I watched the first episode of the second season of WGN Underground. All the characters are back from last season and they are all in various stages of agony. What else could we expect? The story is about slavery and slavery was agony. So when did slavery become entertainment? The New Birth of a Nation, 12 Years a Slave or does it go all the way back to the romanticized slavery saga Gone with the Wind? Sure the acting is great but do we really want to watch the overseer hit the male slave and then he turns around and hits the female slave that he calls his woman? Is this the kind of thing we want to curl up and watch on a weekly basis? What do you think is this good entertainment or is this simply a sad tale that makes you angry or simply sad?

Ben Carson calls slaves immigrants…another “alternative fact”


Ben Carson called the slaves immigrants. This is another attempt to sanitize the atrocity of slavery. Slaves were forcibly brought here in chains. They were not seeking the American Dream they were brought here to help others achieve their dreams. Immigrants make a choice to come but slaves were not given a choices. This statement is just stupid. Share your thoughts.
