*Some people need a come to Jesus moment with a quickness! Truly. One gem of a sicko decided to take two different photos of president Barack Obama with his family, and turn them into one nasty lie: a picture of Obama supposedly molesting his daughter, Sasha. (more…)

As we watch Detroit’s residents being raped and pillaged by the mismanagers of the city, now the federal government puts in the deathblow to the embattled city.
Bloomberg News reported that other countries in the middle of some sort of political and social unrest, drug trafficking, and economical plight, are going to receive more federal assistance than Detroit in 2014. Detroit is slated to receive $108.2 million, and they are experiencing the same issues, maybe even more than these other countries, yet the focus is outside of America. Now is that patriotic? (more…)

Kwame Kilpatrick has been back and forth to prison and unable to pay his bills, but managed to keep his wife and kids in a mansion in Texas…until now.
As the former mayor of Detroit awaits a new prison sentence, his wife Carlita Kilpatrick, was seen removing her unwanted furniture from their Grand Prairie, Texas mansion in preparation for moving day. The former first lady of Detroit had recently earned a position with the Parks & Recreation department, but she didn’t make it past the probationary period and was let go. Now her and her two sons are moving out of their home because the lease has expired and it appears the financial well has run dry, according to Detroit’s local NBC affiliate WDIV channel 4 News.

George Zimmerman is not the only criminal in Florida. The state’s government is having their feet held to the fire for the way they’ve chosen to translate the Stand Your Ground law into the acquittal of Zimmerman and false imprisonment of Marissa Alexander.
The EURweb reported that Mary Mary have joined with Stevie Wonder to boycott Florida until they abolish the law. And the call to action has been heard and more of music’s heavyweights are answering the call and cancelling their concerts and standing with the socially conscious, legendary balladeer, according to veteran White House correspondent April D. Ryan of the White House Report. (more…)

In late June, we reported on pro-choice hero Wendy Davis when she stood on Texas’ state floor and staged an 11-hour filibuster without breaks to fight against the abortion bill that would close all but five abortion clinics in the state.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry was in total opposition to Davis, so much so, that he re-introduced the bill and had it signed into law Thursday morning. The earlier version was successfully thwarted by Davis’ filibuster, but sly Perry slid a new and improved version in and both houses of the legislature passed it through last week with a final signature from Perry today. According to the report from the Huffington Post, he was locked and loaded, prepared for today! (more…)

During Apartheid in South Africa, African Americans and others were a part of a campaign to divest from the country. Government sanctions were not the only U.S. entity to pull out of a relationship with South Africa, many people, especially African Americans, and students from all types of colleges, via various organizations, stopped supporting those companies with South African interests.
Stevie Wonder has been a crusader for justice for many years for every humanitarian and civil rights effort imaginable. He was a central figure in supporting the holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King on his birthday by creating one of the most popular songs in history. But now his focus is on the Trayvon Martin murder and acquittal of George Zimmerman. He now vows that we won’t have to worry about spending another dollar on one of his shows in Florida because there won’t be any. (more…)

The George Zimmerman case ended with a “not guilty” verdict that those in favor of justice are not happy with, but the reaction from the civil rights organizations and the community will not allow this to be the end of the story.
Former White House adviser, Van Jones, who resigned under duress over his past activism as well as “crude” remarks he made about Republicans, took to Twitter on Sunday morning after the verdict came in and posted a powerful picture of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., in a hoodie similar to that Trayvon Martin was wearing the night he was gunned down by George Zimmerman.
