Chelesa Fearce is the Valedictorian and star student at Charles Drew High School with a 4.466 GPA, 1900 on her SAT, and a full ride to Spelman University and achieved it all while being homeless.

Chelesa Fearce has been getting up and going to someone else’s bathroom and getting her morning started from her mother’s car since she was in the sixth grade. But, when she graduated from Charles Drew High School as valedictorian, and already completed the first two years of her college education, no one had a clue she was homeless. Continue reading
Tremaine McMillian, 14, was arrested for “dehumanizing stares” at a Memorial Day picnic in Miami. His mother taped the arrest.
Florida has to have some of the most unusually racist areas in the country. It’s been over 50 years since Emmett Till was brutally attacked and killed for “flirting” and “looking” at a white woman and now police are taking up where his attackers left off…but in 2013.
Maurissa Holmes, of Miami Gardens, was at Haulover Beach for a Memorial Day picnic with her family when her son, Tremaine McMillian, was arrested by police as they accused him of “clenching his fists” and giving officers “dehumanizing stares,” according to the Grio. Holmes told the Grio that her 14-year-old son was just playing with friends and his new puppy in the water when two police officers on ATVs rolled up because they thought the teens were fighting.

Everyone was eager to put their numbers in the pot for the largest Powerball jackpot in history, May 18. But, it doesn’t seem that everyone was eager to win even though they played.
There is one person in Zephyrhills, Florida, that purchased the ticket that won the jackpot of $590 million, yet they have not come forward to claim their winnings. We’ve tried to think of every scenario that may have prevented them from picking it up: they died, they haven’t checked their ticket, they don’t need the money, they have warrants, they may have relatives that would wack them for the ticket! Who knows! Really…who knows? Continue reading

Portage, Michigan’s M Spa is under fire for owner’s extreme action taken toward one of the customers and her autistic son.
The salon is a place where women go to have their therapy and girls day out. So when you have to bring your child with you, the girls’ club may get ugly…in fact, they did.
Ashley Bays and her 2-and-a-half-year-old son, Grayson, went into a Michigan salon to get the child a haircut. According to the Huffington Post, another customer in the M Spa, Vanessa Hunt, witnessed the worst customer service ever as the boy got his haircut and his mom sat for a manicure.
Of course, little Grayson showed out! He was crying and screaming and having a difficult time getting his hair cut. But, the salon owner, Michelle Mott, stormed into the room and went…OFF! She tore into Bays about her son as other women like Hunt looked on in complete shock. When Mott finished yelling at the woman, the woman replied in tears: “I’m so sorry, he’s autistic.” Continue reading
President Obama points out that the lipstick on his collar belongs to last year’s American Idol runner-up’s aunt, Tuesday, May 28, 2013.
Since former president Clinton’s indiscretions with Monica Lewinsky in the White House, no president wants to be the center of that type of controversy. Our president is no different. He’s crossing his t’s and dotting his i’s and pointing folks out!
