*Love is so powerful. It can develop anywhere apparently. And for two women in the midst of the Ferguson protests, following the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown, it happened. And now they are getting married.
Alexis Templeton, 20, and Brittany Ferrell, 25, are two of the co-founders of Millennial Activists United. When they first met last August, it was amidst the loud chanting of protestors who sought police accountability after Brown was killed by former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The two are also both plaintiffs in a federal court case against law enforcement agencies over their heavy-handed response to demonstrations.
They started dating not long after. On Tuesday afternoon, Templeton formally proposed to Ferrell at City Hall, and the couple then picked up a marriage license. Continue reading →
*As the host of the once corny TV game show, “Family Feud,” you’ve got to give it to Steve Harvey. He has made the show worth watching. Harvey’s deadpan expressions alone–following an answer he didn’t expect from a contestant, makes it worth tuning in to.
So you can imagine the look on his face when an elderly contestant named Gene gave his honest opinion as he answered one of the questions on the prompt.
The question: “Name something that has to be licked.”
Now, since Family Feud is still, basically, a “family” show – you’d expect this old dude to say something like, a lollipop or a stamp.
*Exactly 70 years after 14-year-old George Stinney, Jr. was put to death by execution after being accused of murdering two young white girls 84 days earlier in the small mill town of Alcolu, S.C., the court came to a major decision.
Which was basically…Oops.
And by the looks of things, everyone is supposed to be impressed.
*Now do we really need “new research” to tell us what we’ve been hearing for years about a man’s hands? OK, let me back up. This research says you can find the perfect man because the length of his fingers can predict how well he gets on with women.
But it goes into a bit more detail, I guess. It says men whose index fingers are close to the length of their ring fingers were found to have more harmonious relationships with women.
The lower the ratio between second finger and ring finger, the more likely they are to have a happy relationship. Continue reading →
*Well let’s just hope this crap doesn’t ‘catch on.’
Please forgive me your honor. I was drunk and high and didn’t know what I was doing when I climbed in her window and had my way with her.
Sucking my teeth!
But its probably close to the tale 40-year-old Jason Britcher told, after he admitted mixing gin and cocaine before he crept into the unlocked room f a woman who was still in her party dress, asleep, and then, started to caress her.
Hull Crown Court heard the alleged victim thought Britcher was her husband. This is why she said she responded to his advances before she turned around and saw it was the married clerk trying to have sex with her. Continue reading →
*See, folks better stop calling themselves by the N-word, because when others’ not in your race decide to refer to you like that, how can you get mad?
Marquis Moore‘s feelings apparently got hurt after he saw the N-word allegedly printed on the bar tab space where his name was supposed to be, according to The Patroit-News. He had gone to Zembie’s Sports Tavern in Harrisburg, Pa. to eat and watch the game, but was shocked when he got his tab and saw the offensive slur.
“It makes me feel like I’m just low,” Moore, 29, expressed. “A n–ga is an ignorant, disrespectful person. It has nothing to do with your skin color. What would possess you to put something like that on a piece of paper? You don’t even know who I am.”
But here’s the thing. Angelo Karagiannis, Zembie’s owner, apparently thought it was funny; and wondered why Moore didn’t get the joke. He said Moore shouldn’t be offended by it. Reportedly the establishment’s bartender, Megan Bonsall, told the owner Moore had been chatting with other bar patrons. So when she wanted to know Moore’s name, she asked a friend of his, who directed her to his Facebook page where he referred to himself as “sexy N-word.” Continue reading →
And even those in exclusive, mainly Caucasian, fraternities, dream of one day having a go-at-it with the biggest female star today:
Well, as Spike Lee so eloquently said in, “She’s Gotta Have It,”… WAKE UP!
Ain’t gonna happen. Not even if a cold day in hell does present itself.
But a boy can dream right? And that’s what members of the University of Pennsylvania’s chapter of Phi Delta fraternity did. But they did it out loud. Posed for a holiday card with a naked brown-skinned blow-up doll and put it on Facebook and caused a ruckus.
