Jamal Bryant appears on Tom Joyner Morning Show and stops defending “hoes ain’t loyal”

Jamal Bryant admits he had a rough week. He has come under fire for a sermon he gave a month ago. At the end of that sermon he quoted a Chris brown song and said “hoes ain’t loyal”. This week that statment blew up. Bryant’s first response was to tell all the “haters” to listen to the entire sermon and not simply react to a soundbite, but this soundbite was brutal. This morning Bryant appeared on the Tom Joyner show and he finally stopped digging. He admitted it was a poor choice of words, but he went on to challenge the radio community and the entire community to stop using the word. He said isn’t it ironic that the radio stations that were trashing him had songs on their playlist that use that word in their lyrics? He makes a valid point but we hold clergy up to a higher standard that we do a dj. Bryant seemingly learned something this week. he already is known as a great orator, but with that gift comes responsibility and he has to be responsible for the words that he utters to his congregation. They are not the only ones watching. he has stepped on the world stage and they are not as forgiving as the members of empowerment Temple.

Has Chicago gone Buckwild?

The other day I was driving and listening to the DL Hugeley radio show. They were discussing the violence going on in Chicago and they refered they called the Windy City, Chiraq. I immediately understood the reference but when I got home I Googled it and found out that this term is a common term in the community. So has Chicago truly become as dangerous as Iraq? We all saw the shooting at the basketball part and how 13 people were wounded but is the entire city like this? The answer is no. There are parts of the city that are not affected by this kind of senseless violence. How can this be possible? This kind of behavior would not be tolerated on the Gold Coast? No one would dare to simply start shooting people on the “Magnificent Mile”, and if they did I guarantee you they would be caught and convicted. I hear people say the people in the community won’t help themselves well what should they do? Should they strap up and literally fight fire with fire. should they form vigilante groups and patrol the neighborhoods? Come on people if the police can’t handle it then they should take up the governor’s offer and call in the troops. The people need help. the answer is not more bars on the windows and locks on the doors. Chicago can do better and Chicagoans deserve more.

CBS offended by Big Brother racist contestants, but not enough to put them off the show

FROM TMZ
“The honchos at CBS tell TMZ … they were certainly OFFENDED by several racist and homophobic comments made by the current “Big Brother” houseguests … but hey, that’s live programming for ya.
The houseguests have been under fire from what appears to be the ENTIRE INTERNET over the following comments:
— GinaMarie referred to welfare as “n**ger insurance”
— Aaryn called gay contestant Andy a “queer.”
— Spencer referred to Andy as “Kermit the F**” … and praised Hitler as a gifted speaker. CBS has released a statement to TMZ … saying, “We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive.”
However, The Eye points out that 24/7 live programming can sometimes reveal some bad things about people … saying, “At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone.” There have been rumors that Big Brother will be 86ing some of the offensive cast members — but it certainly doesn’t appear that’s gonna happen.” What I find interesting is if these statements were made by someone on one of the networks scripted shows they would have been fired no questions asked, but since this is “reality” television an apology is viewed as a sufficient response. What do you think should the constestants who have made the reacist, homophobic slurs be allowed to stay on the show?
