Al Roker Is not letting Billy Bush “whitesplain” Ryan Lochte’s lies


You go Al Roker. You called a lie a lie not an embellishment. You didn’t “calm down” like Billy Bush suggested. You kept it real and kept it truthful.

Donald Trump’s appeal to black folks, “what do you have to lose”, now that’s a winning strategy


Nobody respects the black vote. The Democrats take us for granted and the Republicans ignore us. Well, The Donald polling 1-2% in the black community has articulated a new strategy, and that is the “what the hell do you have to lose: strategy. Not really offering anything new. Not even coming into the community to articulate it. Just standing in front of mostly white crowds he just screams his new words. Is this truly the way he should be talking to black folks? 2016 is a different kind of election. Hillary Clinton is no Barack Obama and black people are not going to come out in those Obama numbers for her. So my advice is they both need to learn not all blacks live in poverty. We are like all Americans…different, and they need to address us that way.

Ryan Lochte, can we just say Thug?

32 year old man vandalizes bathroom and then lies about it to the world. Some call it young men having a good time but others including me call it thug behavior what do you call it? Share your thoughts.

Ryan Lochte lied and destroyed property, is he a thug?

The reaction to Ryan Lochte’s illegal activities can be described in one word-muted. He and his band of swimming brothers went out for a night on the town in Rio. They partied and then they destroyed property. They were detained by the police and then Lochte lied about the details. He came home to the US and his party buddies are left to answer questions. So where is the outrage? Why aren’t we hearing the talking heads vilifying him or demanding an apology? No one has called him a thug. So tell me why aren’t these gold medal winning swimmers being crucified by the press? You don’t have to tell me I know the answer.

Donald Trump said President Obama was the founder of Isis…now he says it was just “sarcasm”


For the past few days Donald Trump has told his crowds that President Obama and Hillary Clinton were the founders of Isis. He made this statement strongly and often. When given opportunities to reel it in he didn’t. So today via Twitter he declares his statements as “sarcasm”. It’s the media’s fault for taking him seriously. Let’s say this is true and that’s stretching the definition of truth. It is sarcasm. Would a serious candidate actually do this? He got his message out to his people and they will take his statement to heart especially when he employed the president’s middle name to his statement. He got the impact he was looking for and for him that is a win.

Mothers of the Movement Make their Statement at the DNC


This group of mothers all share the loss of a child to senseless violence. Three of them shared their testimony last night, but the criticism started before they left the stage. They did not attack law enforcement, but they did say Black Lives Matter, and they do and they have a right to share their story on a big stage, and Hillary Clinton gave them that stage. Share your thoughts.
