Don Lemon responds to Russell Simmons Open letter


Watch the clip and share your thoughts.

Why is Don Lemon being called Uncle Tom?


Today I noticed that the attack dogs are going after CNN Don Lemon. He is being called Uncle Tom and others things that are too vile to repeat, but why? He had the audacity to agree with Bill O’Reilly and that is an unpardonable sin. Watch the clip. Sadly if you don’t affirm all aspects of the antics going on within the community you too might be branded, but is this fair? Are we only allowed to speak when we are uttering affirmations? We have to have the courage to say what is right even if it goes against the tide. The truth often hurts, but that does not mean it should not be told. Watch the clip and share your thoughts.

Tom Joyner offers Rachel Jeantel a scholarship…is this a waste of money?

Radio host Tom Joyner has offered Rachel Jeantel a college scholarship, but Jeantel is not yet prepared to receive it. Jeantel was the last person to talk to Trayvon Martin. She has gained noteriety since she was the star prosecution witness at the George Zimmermann trial, but is that enough to warrant a scholarship?

George Zimmerman found not guilty on all counts

George Zimmerman is a free man today. He was found not guilty tonight by a jury of his peers. The jury has spoken and we have to accept their verdict. Zimmerman did profile Trayvon Martin. He did follow him after he was told not to and he did kill him, but according to the verdict he did not commit a crime. He was not declared innocent, but he was found not guilty and that means the state did not satisfy their burden of proof. Remember when OJ Simpson was acquitted, and to this day most Americans believe he is a killer. In 1995 I remember saying OJ might have done it but the state did not prove it. Well now I will say Zimmerman did it, but the state did not prove that he actually committed a crime.

Did Paula Deen leave the Today Show hanging?

Paula Deen loves to talk, but this morning The Today Show just announced that Deen’s scheduled interview might not happen this morning. She was supposed to talk about her use of the n-word in the friendly confines of the Today Show. She has been a frequent guest of the show and they consider her to be a friend of the show, but at this point she might not want to do too much talking. She probably has said enough.
