*“Let me kill this baby … You are a bad motherf*cker. That’s why you always have to get in jail,” can you believe that these are the words coming from the mouth of a six-year-old who’s elder is videotaping her? It all began when the woman behind the camera asked the little girl to “show us how you play with your doll.”
That’s when the tirade began.
I’m sure Black folk all over the world are jumping for joy that its not one of ours.Continue reading →
*Apparently this fool didn’t hear about the Bank of America employee who was fired after she posted her racist rant on Facebook. I swear, this is even further proof that racist people are simply not that smart. OK, I’ll say it: They’re downright dumb. And ignorant. Take Diane Amoratis, an employee…er, former employee, at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Center City, Philadelphia, who NBC reports wrote that she was “sick and tired of all this bull—- with the black people,” on Facebook.
Hey, people have a right to their opinion. Hell, we all have them, but that does not mean you have to put them on blast. And this fool didn’t stop there. Her hate even intercepted a compliment she was giving the police officers stationed at the protests. Truly, it was as if once she opened her mouth to spew her hate, a bad case of diarrhea set in and she just couldn’t stop. Continue reading →
“We’ll see how much her life matters soon..better be careful leaving your info open where she can be found 🙂 hold her close tonight it’ll be the last time.” Imagine a police officer leaving this comment about your 5-year-old daughter on your Facebook page. These horrific words come verbatim from a man who called himself Rodney Lee Wilson. It didn’t take long for him to be identified as a white cop on the force of the Overland Park Police Department in Kansas.
And it took even less time for his ass to be fired.
When Lanaydra Williams saw the post that had been written about a picture of her precious daughter; which had been on the page for more than two years, she told FOX 4 news, who spoke with her on Friday via Skype, that she was shocked.
“I received a notification from a name I didn’t know,” Williams recalled.
Already on edge from the news about the situation in Dallas, where 5 officers were killed, Williams said this threatening post added insult to injury and she didn’t sleep at all.
“It’s not okay. Not my child, she’s all I have. India is my heart, that’s not right. We’re already on edge, so why would you do that?” Williams asked.Continue reading →
*I’ve visited Phoenix only once, one July over a decade ago. As my plane from Detroit landed that morning, the pilot announced that the temperature outside was “a relatively comfortable 107 degrees.”
I thought he was joking, until I walked out of the airport and experienced heat so intense it caused birds outside to literally pant like dogs. Growing up in chilly Michigan, I’d never seen a bird pant before!
So I KNOW it’s hot in Phoenix, so generally speaking, the less clothing you have on, the better. But our brothers and sisters there have taken things to a new level. Continue reading →
*White privilege just keeps rearing its ugly head. I will be the first to say, that if this story was about a black mother, the end game would be so different. But 35-year-old Rachel Lehnardt of Evans, Georgia has white is right on her side. After hosting a “naked Twister” sex-party with her daughters male friends; where she had sex with her girl’s 16-year-old boyfriend, and brought out sex toys to masturbate for the finale, a court decided to give her…wait for it…six months probation.
It all started with a text.
According to reports, Lehnardt’s husband had gone out of town when her daughter sent a text asking if she could have friends over. Her mom’s response was, “let’s party!”
*Chicago police chief Mitchell Davis is calling the home invasion- murder of Dionus M. Neely, 39, and his two daughters, 3-year-old Endia and 10-year-old Elle, an act of “pure evil.” He also adds that the shootings, which took place in a Chicago suburb called Hazel Crest, were “targeted.”
“Anyone who could kill a 3-year-old and a 10-year-old, that’s pure evil as far as I’m concerned,” Davis said at a news conference Sunday.
The father and his daughters were asleep when the incident took place and Erin Neely, the children’s mother, and wife to Dionus, spoke to the Chicago Sun-Times about the incident. Continue reading →
*Well, I’m going to add this caveat to the story first: If you can wrap your brain around this circus, you’re deserving of being in genius category. The major sadness is that it involves an innocent child…with a mother named India Turner, but here on out will be referred to as “crazy maniac.”
Here’s the reason she is now crowned with that name.
Authorities say that Crazy Maniac was driving while holding her little boy, in the passenger seat unrestrained, by the neck.
She ended up getting into a crash, left the scene, and was subsequently charged with aggravated child abuse with great bodily harm, aggravated battery, aggravated assault and leaving the scene of said crash.
OK, that’s the cut and dry of it. But it’s the “details” that’s gonna get you.Continue reading →
*I worked in the special needs industry for seven years, and I know that the children and young adults afflicted with conditions such as Autism, Down Syndrome and the entire spectrum, have the same wants and needs as any individual when it comes to love and acceptance. Which is why it hurts my heart so badly to hear about a child being excluded from anything because of a disability. In this particular case, Sawyer, who has Down Syndrome, was the only kid in his class who did not get an invite to a classmate’s birthday party. His mother chose to deal with this hurt by penning an open letter to the birthday boy’s family.
In “An open letter to the parent that thought it was OK to invite the entire class to their child’s birthday except my son,” Jennifer Kiss-Engele begins by clarifying why she feels it is so important for her to write it. I am “sharing this because I think it’s a valuable lesson for all and I’m trying to educate & advocate more…” Continue reading →
