One of the youngest actresses nominate for an Oscar is of color. She gets mad hate over her role in a play.
10 year old actress Quvenzhané Wallis will play the role of Annie. She and Jamie Foxx will be in the play and here comes the word vomit from the racist right.
Here's an example of the hate that comes down the pipe.
@GZWarrior I use it all the time: nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger!!

Nothing but a grown ass loser who has nothing but contempt for the Black community.
Is there anything I got to say to the Turd?
One thing: She's rich and famous. He's not! Therefore, he'll hate. After all, a NIGGER got a better role than what this burger flipper got! So he'll have a pissy fit over it.
Call us NIGGERS all you want, chump.
Call us NIGGERS all you want, chump.
But guess what, the USA is getting brown and your ass is going down!
Just like the Cheerios ad, this type of stuff exist.
The racist right and their friends head over to the Conservative Political Action Conference to promote this type of nonsense. Besides attacking a talented actress like Quvenzhané Wallis, the racist right would try to claim their down for the struggle.
Look how they try their best at reaching out to minorities.

Been over a year for the IRS scandal.
Been over a year for the Benghazi scandal.
Been over a year since The former IRS official who is constantly hounded by Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) got death threats because of the continuous name drops from the likes of King Hippo (aka Rush Limbaugh) and P*ssy Ass Sean Hannity (aka That Guy Who Helped Obama Win).
This week brought some fireworks at the umpteenth congressional hearing. Issa and his counterpart Congressman Elliah Cummings (D-MD) got into a heated confrontation during Lois Lerner's testimony.
Cummings slammed Issa for not allocating time for him talk. He also called to question to why Issa's committees netting no smoking gun results.
Lerner’s lawyers had said she would simply plead the Fifth again, and asked lawmakers to reconsider a public hearing, citing the numerous death threats the former IRS official had received since the scandal first surfaced. It was also reported that she wanted immunity in exchange for answering questions. But Issa said that she would not be granted any such protections when she appears this Wednesday before his committee.
|No new friends. A testy spat between Republican Darrell Issa and Democrat Elliah Cummings.|
Republicans, in the meantime, have continued to make the case that there was a larger political motivation behind the targeting and have sought to tie the IRS' watch lists to influence from higher up in the Obama administration. Lerner will likely be pressed hard on this.
The IRS, which is currently being investigated by six different entities over the controversy, is also trying to revamp the rules it uses for weighing how to apply tax exempt status to political organizations. Under the drafted rule, the IRS would limit the amount of "candidate-related political activity" that groups claiming to be social welfare organizations can conduct. The IRS would also define candidate-related political activity to include certain communications such as direct advocacy for a certain candidate, voter registration drives and offering up grants and donations.
Republicans have strongly objected to the proposal, calling it a violation of free speech. Democrats have argued that it would bring some clarity into a tax-exempt application process that -- as demonstrated by the IRS mess -- clearly needs it.

Rapper and music producer Speaker Knockerz was found dead.
He produced singles for T.I., Ludacris, Gucci Mane, Young Scooter, Waka Flocka, Future and 2 Chainz.
He released a mixtape this year called Married To The Money.
According to the Associated Press, Derek McAllister (aka Speaker Knockerz) was found dead in his home near Columbia, SC.
Billboard reports the 19-year-old emcee was discovered in his garage on Two Notch Road in Columbia. Coroner Gary Watts said foul play is not suspected and an autopsy found no sign of trauma. Results are pending for a toxicology test.
The Richland County Sheriffs Department is investigating.
McAllister may have been missing for at least two days before being found. A Facebook user who identified herself as the rapper's mom said he was last seen Tuesday night while in a black Camaro. "It's not like him not to communicate or come home for this long period of time," Mesha Wilson reportedly wrote. "I pray that my son is ok."
Though unsigned, the rapper's videos on YouTube average somewhere between 200,000 to 3 million-plus views. Soon after his death was made public, #RIPSpeakerKnockerz became a Twitter trend in the United States. Friend and collaborator Zack Dillan, who directed many of the artist's videos, was among the mourners.
We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of Speaker Knockerz.
It's been 20 years since serial killer Henry L. Wallace was arrested in connection with the deaths of 10 young Black women in the Charlotte Metro area. Changes has been in place since the Charlotte PD had neither the resources nor the patience to solve serial murders in that area. The murders weren't handled properly, as there were many mistakes and misses of the murders of several victims. It wasn't until March 9th that the police and the media warned the area that there was a serial killer in the midst. It was at that time, Charlotte began to be transformed from a conservative, Southern city into a world-Class Metropolis of today.
Please take the time to watch the video. It's time to focus the victims and their short lives instead of glorifying the perpetrator as mainstream media always do.
May the women rest in peace.
|Jobs were added year and President Barack Obama's critics will continue to complain.|
The unemployment numbers are up. The added jobs for February was 175,000. This drove unemployment numbers to 6.7%.
U.S. hiring improved in February from the previous two months despite a blast of wintry weather, likely renewing hopes that growth will accelerate this year.
The Labor Department said Friday that employers added 175,000 jobs last month, up from just 129,000 in January, which was revised up from 113,000. December's gain was also revised higher.
The unemployment rate rose to 6.7 percent from a five-year low 6.6 percent. More Americans started looking for work but didn't find jobs. That's still an encouraging sign because more job hunters suggest that people were more optimistic about their prospects.
The figures were a welcome surprise after recent economic reports showed that harsh weather had closed factories, lowered auto sales, and caused existing-home sales to plummet.
"Over the past three months, payrolls growth has averaged 130,000, which is pretty respectable given the widespread weather disruptions," tweeted University of Michigan economist Justin Wolfers.
The low temperatures and snow storms that hit the eastern half of the country in February might still have held back hiring. The number of Americans who said weather forced them to work part time rather than full time reached the highest level for February in the 36 years that the government has tracked the figure. The average work week fell.
Some recent reports hint that the economy will accelerate as the weather warms. The number of people who applied for unemployment benefits fell last week and is at about the same level as before the Great Recession.

Still, other factors are weighing on the economy. Auto makers and other manufacturers build up big stockpiles of goods in the second half of last year. That means they are likely producing fewer goods this year and is probably one reason factory orders are down.
Most economists forecast the economy will grow at a 2 percent annual pace or less in the first three months of the year, down from a 2.4 percent pace in the final three months of 2013. But they expect growth to accelerate in the spring and summer to roughly a 3 percent pace.
