*Yep, she is. Somebody done told grandma she’s fine, and she actually believed it. Hey, nothing wrong with that. There are a lot of good looking grandma’s out there, but let’s keep it real, we don’t expect to see 80 and 90 year old women posing as centerfolds in a calendar. Well that’s a visual you no longer have to imagine because it happened at an assisted living facility in Ohio, and the elderly women did it for charity.
Wearing little more than a green top hat, at 88, Miss March resides at the Pleasant Pointe Assisted Living facility and she is photographed with two women in their 90s who seem to be playing poker with strategically placed oversize cards (pictured above) while smoking a cigar. Continue reading →
*How does the song go…’Hold up, wait a minute!’ Well that’s what I’m telling you to do, at least until you hear what the man who mysteriously placed those racially-charged stickers on businesses all across Texas a few days ago.
I wrote about it here.
But the reason why he said he did it, may leave you shaking your head. I have to be honest, this man says he is a lawyer, but after I heard him speak, and giving the reason for his actions, it would surprise me if he ever won anybody’s case in court.
But as they say, that’s a story for another day.
Adam Reposa posted a video where he is in silhouette “on a soapbox” claiming thatits notthe words on the stickers that is the problem, but the fact that East Austin is “turning into whites only” because of gentrification, though he doesn’t use that word. Continue reading →
According to the Associated Press, employees at several businesses in Austin, Texas found stickers saying “exclusively for white people” placed on their windows. Now an investigation has been sparked into where they came from and folks are condemning the mayor.
Mayor Steve Adler said the stickers discovered Wednesday morning were “an appalling and offensive display of ignorance in our city.”
*A heavy pot smoker (or seller’s) dream recently occurred thanks to a car trying to get away from cops in hot pursuit last week along a highway southeast of Phoenix. Suspected drug runners threw approximately 17 bales of weed from their car and police say they picked up about 374 pounds at the conclusion of the chase.
But there is still more drugs out there that were not recovered. And you’d be accurate if you assumed fellow road travelers not involved in the chase even stopped and scooped up some of the bales. Continue reading →
*I have a confession to make. I often have this movie clip running in my head where all of the heavenly deities are sitting around watching us humans and shaking their heads. I hear one lone voice plead, ‘Please stop using my name to excuse your wicked actions. They have nothing to do with me.” Case in point: During a fight in the State of Pennsylvania police say a man threw a “Jesus” vanity license plate at his older brother and cut him bad enough to require treatment by paramedics.
The plate reads, “You’ve got a friend in Jesus.” And moreover, its sealed with a “never expires.”
*Though the University of Oklahoma’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity went kaput following the leak of that racist chant video, the fallout is just being revealed.
As soon as the footage showing a ‘busload’ of white frat brothers chanting the lyrics, ‘you can hang ‘em from trees, but they will never sign with me’ which warned (no more blacks) will ever be admitted into SAE (there were 2 over the past two decades), the frat house was shut down and the ‘brotherhood’, well, they’re still sitting on their hands wondering what’s going to happen to them.
More importantly though, a greater casualty has occurred, a longtime employee of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house has lost his job.
A black man who didn’t deserve to pay the price for these pathetic morons.
*A University of Oklahoma fraternity was recently shut down and its members publicly blasted after a video surfaced showing fraternity members engaging in a racially insensitive chant.
The video caused OU president David Boren to publicly blast the members involved and vow to bring them to justice. Boren spoke on camera of his extreme disappointment, and revealed that he has imposed a deadline of midnight Tuesday for the members of SAE to get their belongings out of the fraternity house.
An investigation has been launched to determine who was involved, and Boren says he will consider “all possible punishment,” including expulsion, and told reporters, “I’d be happy if they left, the ones who were involved. I know not every member of this fraternity was involved. But a large number were, a busload.” Continue reading →
*Not many of us grown folk can say we would have handled someone calling us ‘ugly’ with the grace that four-year-old Siajh “Cici” Chase did. After all, ‘dems fightin’ words. But I am a believer that children can also teach us lessons. And we shouldn’t dismiss them just because they’re young.
We should realize at this stage of the game that bullies come in all shapes, sizes and colors. But we expect them to appear in youth, and we hurt for our children who must endure the pain. But little Cici has obviously learned a thing or two in her young day. So when this boy approached her in pre-kindergarten class and said she looked ugly, he didn’t succeed in ruffling her feathers. She didn’t lose her cool and get bent out of shape. She didn’t punch him out. Instead she looked him square in the eye and used her words. And they weren’t in the tone you might think.
