Old Geezer’s Answer to ‘Lick’ Question on Family Feud Get’s Steve Harvey’s Head Shakin’ (Watch)

family feud

*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.

But no. SMH. Continue reading

George Stinney, Jr., Youngest Person Ever Executed, Exonerated 70 Years Later By SC Judge (Impressed Much?)

George Stinney, Jr. in undated photo
We are not exactly sure of the date this photo of 14-year-old George Stinney, Jr. was taken – but the year is said to be 1944

*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.

No physical evidence or trial transcript exists…and probably never did. Continue reading

Did New Orleans Police Really Ignore This Tourists’ Rape Claim? (Watch)

NOPD, Woman says ignored rape claim

*A woman is claiming that police in New Orleans have ignored her claim that she was raped in her room by a security guard. The unidentified woman, who made a tradition 3 years ago to visit New Orleans with her husband, says the rape occurred after her husband left their French Quarters hotel room.

The woman says that despite all the evidence in the room that prove her claims, the police detective said the sex was consensual and refused to follow up on the case. Continue reading

Blackface-Wearin’ White Students: Principal is Like, ‘Oh, They Don’t Mean Anything By It’

Blackface students

*Talk about being clueless. When a group of teen girls from Sullivan High School ran onto the football field on November 5 for a powder-puff game, school principal Jennifer Schmidt recalls her gut reaction was, “Oh my gosh.”

“And then I thought, ‘Oh, they don’t mean anything by it. Just let it go. No one thinks anything of it.’ I didn’t think anyone did,” says Schmidt.

“Evidently, someone did.”

Ya think.

Photos taken during the game and later posted on Facebook show twelve members of the senior class wearing full-blown blackface. The reactions to the photos have been rippling within the small town of Sullivan (60 miles southwest of St. Louis) ever since.

That close to St. Louis? Of all places to not think anything of it.

While you would think these young whites would know better by now; and their school principal would have a clue about these types of things, Schmidt remarks how “very embarrassed and shocked” the students are “at some of the responses they’ve gotten, because I think some people had some stuff on Facebook and got the wrong intention.”

Seriously? Continue reading

Man Brings His ‘New Woman’ With Him to Serve Divorce Papers…Bad, Bad Move! (Watch)

Girlfriend Beatdown

*Well I just don’t know WHAT to think about this one. And I would sure appreciate your thoughts at the end.

We can understand when things don’t work out in a marriage, after a l-o-n-g while, you might start thinking about divorce. This was apparently the case with one couple – well, it was the case with the husband.

But here’s the thing. When he decided to let his wife in on the decision he had come to, which was to divorce her, he brought his new woman along to serve the divorce papers.

The wife went off…and kicked the new woman’s butt in the process. Continue reading

Dave Chappelle Doesn’t Think Donald Sterling Should’ve Lost Clippers…Seriously, Dude?

Comedian Dave Chappelle speaks his mind on the Donald Sterling controversy.
Comedian Dave Chappelle speaks his mind on the Donald Sterling controversy.

 

*OK. I guess a recent interview with GQ magazine caught our boy Dave Chappelle having a “moment.” He said – apparently with a straight face – that he doesn’t think it was fair to force Donald Sterling to sell the team he has owned for 33 seasons, the Los Angeles Clippers. This, he says, in spite of the “awful” racial remarks made by the tenured businessman in a private phone conversation.

Well, with a straight face, I am thinking, “We’re talking about racist-ass Donald Sterling. Why should “fair” be part of the equation?”

Chappelle, 41, said that, ultimately, he doesn’t think the 80-year-old “Sterling should have lost his team.”

“I don’t like the idea that someone could record a secret conversation and that a person could lose their assets from that, even though I think what he said was awful,” he explained.
