The Unlucky 7: Botched Robbery Of Lottery Winner Turned To Murder!

Craigory Burch, Jr. was murdered by people who he thought were his friends.

The Georgia law enforcement agencies are investigating the death of a lottery winner. Seven individuals broke into the home of the man and his family. They would end up attacking the family and killing the man.

Now they're being served in the death of Craigory Burch, Jr.

The Atlanta area man won nearly $500,000 in the state lottery. He was a struggling father of three and had worked a few jobs before luck struck him. He and his girlfriend Jasmine Hendricks were grateful to the community.

He was celebrating the Christmas holiday by donating gifts to charity. Someone got wind of the man's good fortunes. They decided to master a plan to extort money from Craigory.

So seven people would end up breaking into his home. Some were armed with firearms.

Investigators believe three masked people broke into a home under the cover of late-night darkness on Jan. 20. Authorities believe they aimed to rob Burch of his lottery winnings, WALB reported.
The Unlucky Seven.
The suspects were identified as Rosalyn Swain, 22; Keyona Dyous, 24; Earnest Holcomb, 27; Wayan Jordan, 17; Dabrentis Overstreen, 19; Nathaniel Baker, 28; and Anjavell Johnson, 21, according to WFXL.

Ben Hill County Sheriff Bobby McLemore told the news station more arrests were expected but the attack appeared to be targeted and not random.

All seven suspects were charged with malice murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, WALB reported.

Burch's friends said he worked as a forklift operator and used some of his lottery winnings to buy Christmas presents for those in need. Jasmine told WALB he pleaded with his attackers before they fatally shot him.

"When they came in, he said, 'Don't do it, bro. Don't do it in front of my kids. Please don't do it in front of my kids and old lady. Please don't do that, bro. Please don't,'" Hendricks said.

Six of the suspects were being held in Ben Hill County Jail Monday. The remaining suspect was in custody in Colquitt County, according to WALB.

The suspects are innocent until proven guilty.

World News Today send our condolences to the Craigory Brunch.

Pittsburgh News Agitator Fired Out The Cannon For Facebook Rant!

News agitator fired out the cannon for acting ignorant on the social media.

We haven't forgotten about the mass shooting that occurred in Pittsburgh. A family of five were murdered in cold blood after an altercation with two unknown gunmen. The FBI and Pittsburgh Metro Police are investigating this and hopeful they will catch these terrorists.

Well the local junk food media covered this tragedy.

Local news agitator WTAE loaded Wendy Bell in the cannon and fired her out the tent.

Bell's cannon firing was caused by her social media rant about "Black on Whatever" crime. She was playing the role of concern troll.

Here's her social media posting.

“Next to ‘If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times,' I remember my mom most often saying to my sister and me when we were young and constantly fighting, ‘If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.' I've really had nothing nice to say these past 11 days and so this page has been quiet. There's no nice words to write when a coward holding an AK-47 hoses down a family and their friends sharing laughs and a mild evening on a back porch in Wilkinsburg. There's no kind words when 6 people are murdered. When their children have to hide for cover and then emerge from the frightened shadows to find their mother's face blown off or their father's twisted body leaking blood into the dirt from all the bullet holes. There's just been nothing nice to say. And I've been dragging around this feeling like a cold I can't shake that rattles in my chest each time I breathe and makes my temples throb. I don't want to hurt anymore. I'm tired of hurting.

You needn't be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts two weeks ago Wednesday. I will tell you they live within 5 miles of Franklin Avenue and Ardmore Boulevard and have been hiding out since in a home likely much closer to that backyard patio than anyone thinks. They are young black men, likely teens or in their early 20s. They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before. They've grown up there. They know the police. They've been arrested. They've made the circuit and nothing has scared them enough. Now they are lost. Once you kill a neighbor's three children, two nieces and her unborn grandson, there's no coming back. There's nothing nice to say about that.

But there is HOPE. And Joe and I caught a glimpse of it Saturday night. A young, African American teen hustling like nobody's business at a restaurant we took the boys to over at the Southside Works. This child stacked heavy glass glasses 10 high and carried three teetering towers of them in one hand with plates piled high in the other. He wiped off the tables. Tended to the chairs. Got down on his hands and knees to pick up the scraps that had fallen to the floor. And he did all this with a rhythm and a step that gushed positivity. He moved like a dancer with a satisfied smile on his face. And I couldn't take my eyes off him. He's going to Make It.

When Joe paid the bill, I asked to see the manager. He came over to our table apprehensively and I told him that that young man was the best thing his restaurant had going. The manager beamed and agreed that his young employee was special. As the boys and we put on our coats and started walking out -- I saw the manager put his arm around that child's shoulder and pat him on the back in congratulation. It will be some time before I forget the smile that beamed across that young worker's face -- or the look in his eyes as we caught each other's gaze. I wonder how long it had been since someone told him he was special.

There's someone in your life today -- a stranger you're going to come across -- who could really use that. A hand up. A warm word. Encouragement. Direction. Kindness. A Chance. We can't change what's already happened, but we can be a part of what's on the way. Speak up. Reach out. Dare to Care. Give part of You to someone else. That, my friends, can change someone's course. And then -- just maybe THEN -- I'll start feeling again like there's something nice to say.”

Bell joined WTAE in 1998. The native of Calabasas, Calif., lives in Point Breeze with her husband and five sons. Over her career, she won 21 Emmys, two Edward R. Murrow awards and a National Headliner Award.

Within hours of her firing, Bell's WTAE Facebook page was gone and she no longer appeared on WTAE's web page staff listing.

Bell returned to work at Channel 4 after a Florida vacation but never returned to the air. Station officials fired her in a meeting and then informed the rest of the news staff.

“WTAE has ended its relationship with anchor Wendy Bell,” read a statement from Hearst Television, the station's parent company. “Wendy's recent comments on a WTAE Facebook page were inconsistent with the company's ethics and journalistic standards.”

A Hearst Television spokesman declined to comment further.

Bell said Wednesday she didn't get a “fair shake” from the station and that the story was not about her. Media critics say that she's crossed the line and it was justified. Bell crossed a line by presenting her opinions as fact on her anchor Facebook page.

White extremist Colin Flaherty is a panderer of this nonsense. He claims to be legitimate agitator in the junk food media. He says that the junk food media refuses to acknowledge this stuff. He's often banned from most media outlets because of inflammatory statements.

Cop Walk In The Jamar Clark Shooting!

Cop walk in Jamar Clark shooting.

How many more innocent victims?

When will there be accountability for those who wear the badge?

We shed tears for those who were killed! But who pays the price for those who are killed in their so-called justification?

Jamar Clark was shot and killed by the Minneapolis Police Department. Witnesses say that Jamar was killed as he was handcuffed. The grand jury decided that the officers didn't commit murder.

Two police officers, Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze, were involved in the shooting and were subsequently placed in the freezer. The night after the shooting, Clark died at a local hospital after being taken off life support.

In response to the shooting, #BlackLivesMatter organized protests outside the Fourth Precinct police station that lasted for 18 days, as well as other protests and demonstrations in and around Minneapolis. Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced that cases concerning officer-involved shootings would no longer be put before grand juries. On March 30, 2016, Freeman announced that no charges would be filed against Ringgenberg and Schwarze.
Cop walk for two who claimed Jamar reached for the gun.
The officers said that Jamar grabbed the gun while being restrained. The grand jury decided that Jamar's actions lead to her death. For more than 30 minutes in a downtown Minneapolis news conference and with Clark’s family and supporters present, Freeman laid out in meticulous detail the evidence that led to his decision and showed video from the scene on Plymouth Avenue N.

Clark, 24, a black man, was shot in the head during the scuffle.



Officers told Clark to take his hands out of his pockets and he wouldn’t. Ringgenberg, who had initially drawn his gun, put it back in the holster and grabbed Clark’s right wrist. Schwarze grabbed Clark’s other arm and dropped his handcuffs while trying to cuff him. Ringgenberg then tried a takedown move of Clark, and they both fell to the ground with Ringgenberg’s back to Clark’s stomach.

Ringgenberg felt his holstered gun go from his hip to the small of his back. Ringgenberg reached back and felt Clark’s hand on his gun. He repeatedly told Schwarze: “He’s got my gun, he’s got my gun.”

Schwarze put his gun to edge of Clark’s mouth and said, “Let go or I’m going to shoot you.”

They said that his DNA was placed on the holster of the officer's firearm.

The shooting led to international attention, widespread local protests, and an 18-day encampment outside the police department’s Fourth Precinct in north Minneapolis, near the site of the shooting.

Police chief JaneĆ© Harteau said her department and other law enforcement agencies have several contingency plans in place should police action against protesters be necessary. “Officers will exercise restraint,” she said. “Their actions will be based on the actions of others.”

In a prelude to rolling out the evidence followed by his decision, Freeman nodded to the spate of killings of black citizens by police officers in Chicago, Cleveland and elsewhere in the past year or so, saying, “This case is not at all similar to others seen around the country,” he said. The officers “did not have an opportunity to withdraw” from the physical conflict with Clark.

The U.S. Department of Justice's Community Oriented Policing Services office announced that they would be conducting a review of the way the city handled the November protests.
#BlackLivesMatter plans to disrupt businesses.
Mike Freeman, Hennepin County Attorney, announced that his office would cease the use of grand juries in shootings involving police officers. The announcement was met with approval from activists and described by the Star Tribune as a "rare move" with potential ramifications throughout the country.

Later in March, in preparation for Freeman's office's announcement about whether they would be pursing charges against Ringgenberg and Schwarze, Harteau released a video warning against "violence or disruption" based on Freeman's actions.

These incidents make it harder for law enforcement to gain support from communities of color.

These issues aren't mentioned by the Republicans. They're too busy trying to tear away constitutional rights from Americans who demand police reform.

Rest in peace Jamar Clark, the system failed you and many others.

World News Today send our condolences to the family of Jamar Clark.





Alabama Guv's Steaming Affair Drags In The Feds!

The walk of shame for Alabama governor. Caught in a sex scandal and federal probe.

The Republican Party is the party of the so-called "family values". With candidates running for president like Donald Trump, the party isn't so keen on the morals.

Robert Bentley, the governor of Alabama is facing some major heat. Bentley is caught in a sex scandal involving his closest advisor Rebekah Caldwell Mason. The two deny having any affair but the junk food media released some hot and steamy chats from Bentley mistakenly sent to his aide.

Now this scandal has gotten major attention from the junk food media and the feds. The Alabama Attorney General and federal Attorney General Loretta Lynch are investigating Bentley and his beau.
John Kasich's endorsement from Bentley could be an anchor.
The Justice Department are investigating the state's deliberate closing of license offices in urban areas in attempt to suppress voting registration.

The aide sent it to the junk food media. Last week, Mason got some unwanted attention after a former state worker accused Bentley of having an inappropriate relationship with her.

Former Law Enforcement Secretary Spencer Collier accused the governor of having a fling with Mason when they were on state business.

Bentley's wife Dianne sent him the papers after a 50-year marriage. She claimed that the damage was irreparable and his selfish actions will doom him.

The phone recordings went live and they are........the definition of hypocrisy.

Bentley was getting stressed while on vacation on the beach. He decides to ring up a female friend and say to her, "I Love you so much, I worry about loving you so much!"

Later, Bentley would say that he would love to get a little freaky with the person. He sent the messages to the male aide.

Alleged mistress Rebekah Mason.
"It didn't say, 'Hey baby I love you so much and I'd like to spent the rest of my life with you... You kiss me.. I love that. You know I do love that. You know what, when I stand behind you and I put my arms around you and I put my hands on your breast and I put my hands on you and just pull you in really close. I love that, too.'"

Mason decided to fire herself out the cannon pending a federal investigation. Mason, a former television news anchor in Bentley's hometown of Tuscaloosa, signed on as spokeswoman for the little-known legislator's 2010 longshot bid for governor. She worked as the governor's communications adviser before leaving to work on his 2014 re-election.

Observers said Mason helped the governor talk through options as he weighed decisions ranging from taking down Confederate flags to his proposed $800 million prison construction project before lawmakers.

Her detractors within the administration said her opinion increasingly became the only one Bentley would trust.

"At the end of 2014, Governor Bentley made it clear to me in no uncertain terms that from that point forward anyone who questioned Rebekah's influence would be fired," Collier said.

Mason's husband also works for Bentley as the director of Serve Alabama, the Governor's Office of Faith-Based and Volunteer Service.

In a statement issued last week, she said Bentley "apologized to me and to my family, we accepted his apology and have put all of this behind us."





Conservative Outrage Over Rappers Dissing Trump!



A song that goes after controversial Republican candidate goes viral. The group made it specifically for the most unrepentant media whore in the presidential race. Once it made it to the conservative Craigslist, it goes viral and attracts attention from some of the finger wagging agitators.

The most annoying conservative agitator to have radio show, television, blog and access to Republican candidates is concern trolling hip-hop music once again. And he's telling the public that they're freedom of dissent should have them thrown in the iron college.

Instead of calling him Sean Hannity, we should could him, Nannity! Nannity, the whiniest man on the planet. A wannabe that shouldn't have been. He's trying to be like the old farts Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh. He's parroting talking point and name dropping asshole.

On the radio show and television program, Nannity complains about some sucker MCs dissing Donald Trump. He believes that the teens should get a visit from the Secret Service for saying "fuck Trump" and "don't come to Baltimore".
Comedian makes a mock rap going after Trump and conservatives go bananas over it.
The song Choppas in the a Trumk for Donald Trump (CIT4DT) were performed by comedians, Dooley, Tlow and Lor Roger.

Of course, they're not really threatening a presidential candidate. But since it's rap music and it has explicit lyrics, conservatives are outraged over it.

The song's threats of violence against Trump were not literal or even serious.

"We didn't mean no harm by it," Ibrahim said. "We don't got no damn chopper! My religion says don't even kill. I wouldn't kill an innocent fly."

Abdel Ibrahim (Dooley's) popularity online has grown in a short time. (He started posting videos about a year ago, he said.) His Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts each have more than 60,000 followers. A fan-uploaded compilation of his comedy clips has garnered nearly 350,000 views since late February.
Finger wagging asshole complains about rappers dissing Trump. He defended a washed up rocker who once threatened violence on Democratic candidates. 

The "CIT4DT" video has more 200,000 views on the popular video blog Worldstarhiphop.com. Other widely viewed social media accounts like The Shade Room and DJ Akademik’s Instagram page have also shared the song. Then the conservative Craigslist posted it later that day.

The performer was totally pissed about Donald Trump's ban on Muslims coming into the United States. He said that Trump's rhetoric is dividing everyone and it's "fair game" to go after him.

Trump and Snoop Dogg
The song began as a 28-second video upload on March 15, when Ibrahim and his friends performed it live in a car and filmed the footage for Twitter. It included an unprintable hashtag denouncing Trump, and has earned more than 11,000 retweets.

The quick success led Dooley to ask, “Rt if you think we should make [it] into a real song?” On Sunday, the finished version and video were online. Ibrahim said this would be his first and only rap song.

When asked whom he'd like to see as the next president, Ibrahim said Bernie Sanders was "cool."

"To be honest, I just want a good person," he said. "I don't really pay attention to it. I just be hearing all of the stuff Trump be saying."

Trump suggested that his supporters take action against protesters. The agitators of the right often ignored the violence that occurs at these events. The junk food media is covering it and we're noticing.

Note: Nannity defended his buddy Uncle Ted when he said onstage that he's put a couple rounds in Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, then Democratic candidates running for president in 2008. Ted Nugent to this day still advocates violence against Obama and those who support him.

Trump Defends Thug Who Shoved Agitator!

Trump's right hand shoved a reporter with a left hand.

Corey Lewandowski was charged with misdemeanor battery after he was accused of shoving former Breitbart News report Michelle Fields after a Donald Trump presser.

Fields said that when she attempted to ask Donald Trump a question as he was exiting the rally, Lewandowski grabbed and yanked Fields, leaving bruises on her left forearm. The Washington Post reporter Ben Terris, who allegedly witnessed the incident, identified Lewandowski.

Fields filed a criminal complaint with the local police department alleging battery.

The Trump campaign denied Fields' account, as did Lewandowski on his Twitter feed where he denied touching her. Further video evidence showed Lewandowski walking by Fields, appearing to lean and reach in her direction.

Also, she states that he grabbed her upper arm yet the bruises that she put on display are from her lower arm.
Michelle Fields files a criminal complaint against Trump's campaign manager after he roughed her up.

Lewandowski is the campaign manager for the Trump campaign. He will have a day in court for the attack. He is innocent until proven guilty.

Trump has defended Lewandowski. He said that his friend did the right thing.

Fields was a conservative agitator and reporter for the controversial news blog. Breitbart is totally in the tank for Trump. Some claim that Trump's paying the struggling news agitator.

Fields didn't get much backup from Breitbart and conservatives. The conservatives believe that Fields make up the whole incident. They feel that she was deliberately trying to stop Trump.

Some are calling her a liberal for going to the press to tell her side of the story.

Fields has gotten her share of death threats from this.

We hope that Michelle Fields finally see the light. Conservatives don't give a fuck about her. They don't see her as a news reporter. They see her as a person who deserved it.

The Whiteness of TV Courtship





The Whiteness of TV Courtship

Juan Pablo Galavis is the only Bachelor of Color in the Bachelor series

Caila Quinn was considered for the Bachlorette franchise but was rejected in favor of 
Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher

Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher is the face of the new Bachlorette


It has been coming up in the news recently regarding the last bastion of racism/classism:  TV Dating shows, particularly the Bachelor and the Bachelorette shows. Ms. Meredith Blake of the Los Angeles Times discuss this sensitive topic on race/ethnicity and courtship on both The Bachelor and The Bachlorette shows. 
____________________________________________
A handsome, fair-haired man waits expectantly outside a palatial mansion as a horse-drawn carriage pulls up the drive. A beautiful young brunette in a floor-length gown emerges playing the violin, then pauses to introduce herself: "Hi, I'm Shamiqua."
Suddenly a producer interrupts: "Cut! Cut! Cut!" Shamiqua, she explains, does not have "wife potential." The problem: She's black.
"It is not my fault that America's racist, people," the producer proclaims.
____________________________________________________
Yeah, the centuries-old racist ideology of Black women not being suitable wife material dating from slavery onward to Jim Crow to recent stereotyping and racial backlash.  Why do you think antimiscegenation laws existed until 1967 when U.S. Supreme Court struck down those hateful laws in the Loving v. Virginia.  Witness how White Conservatives and Liberals trash Michelle Obama, Beyonce, Charlaine DeBlasio, Jada Pinkett,  Ayesha Curry, etc., for being and maintaining successful marriages.  It seems to me that people and the mainstream media are jealous of Black women and their relationships.  Could it be why the media tried so hard to push the unloving, demanding single Black woman narrative of the past 10 years?  Could it be that they push unflattering stereotypes of Black women in reality shows such as the Housewives of Atlanta, Basketball Wives, etc?
____________________________________________________
The scene is from the Lifetime series "UnREAL," which follows the backstage drama at a fictional dating competition show called "Everlasting." Last week, a similar shade of reality invaded the carefully constructed fantasy of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," the long-running ABC reality franchise that inspired "UnREAL."
Recent comments made by Fleiss on Twitter seem to undermine this claim. Fleiss tweeted March 5 that the identity of the new bachelorette would be revealed via the social media platform, adding in a subsequent tweet, "After 5 years of BBQ chicken as our Night One dinner, I'm thinking of mixing things up this year. Maybe a little Thai food ... Yum!"
___________________________________________________
Objectifying women with food references is bad, but when it is mixed with race and ethnicity, that's not cool.  The producers know better than that.
_______________________________


Some saw the tweet as an indelicate metaphor about the ethnicity of the new bachelorette, an impression strengthened by this update, which arrived two days after Fletcher was announced as the new bachelorette: "I chickened out and went with BBQ chicken. If it ain't broke ... #Bachelorette."
Many have argued that Fleiss and his colleagues care only about ratings and worry that an interracial romance would alienate less-tolerant viewers — this despite a profusion of mixed-race couples on hits including ABC's "Scandal" and AMC's "The Walking Dead." Furthermore, the success of shows such as "Empire" and "The Wiz" has shown that inclusiveness can also be good for the bottom line.
____________________________________________________
That's a cop-out and they know it.  Mainstream media and its masses do not want to see a successful interracial romance, whether be between White and People of Color or among People of Color, i.e. Black and Asian, Hispanic and Asian, Middle Eastern and Black, American Indian and Latino, etc.  Heck, it barely show Black couples together loving each other instead of fighting and having meaningless relationships.
________________________________________________
It could simply be that producers are reluctant to spoil the gauzy fantasy of a fireside couple's massage with a probing discussion of racial difference — a circumstance rarely acknowledged in the artificially post-racial universe of the shows, argues Rachel Dubrofsky, an associate professor at the University of South Florida. "The assumption is that a woman of color can as easily date a white man as a man of color, as if race is nonexistent. This does not effectively address issues of diversity and the real, lived ways in which people are impacted by racial difference."
_____________________________________________________
Please don't even try to deny that the show doesn't reflect real life.  America is much more polarized than ever.  Racial, ethnic, and class segregation has increased in the last 10 years.  The Tea Party and corporatist/wealthy wing of the Republican and Democratic parties have promoted racial divisiveness leading to the rise of Donald Trump.  Recent studies have revealed that nonblack men who proclaim colorblind ideology are far less likely to date/marry/have families with Black women(may I also say other women of Color such as Latinas, South Asian women, Pacific Island women, Middle Eastern women, Southeast Asian women(Filipinas excepted) and Native American women).
_____________________________________________________
"The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" are hardly unique within the reality genre, which has been plagued by allegations of racial insensitivity since the very first season of "The Real World" in 1992.
More recently, contestants on "Big Brother" were caught on tape making derogatory comments about African American and Asian American housemates. Other shows, including "The Real World" and "The Celebrity Apprentice," have been criticized for trafficking in negative stereotypes or stoking racial tension for ratings.
_____________________________________________________
In the latest Bachelor episode,  contender Jubilee was subjected to racial  taunting by her fellow contestants, saying that she doesn't have the right credentials to be his future wife.
According to the Huffington Post article, fellow contestants said that she wouldn't fit in as "a soccer mom wife." 
_____________________________________________________________________
The guise of reality gives producers of shows like "The Bachelor" a convenient excuse, says Dubrofsky, author of the book "The Surveillance of Women on Reality Television: Watching 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette.'" "The makers of the show are easily let off the hook since they can say, 'We are only showing you what the person actually did, which we happened to catch on camera.'"
This season on "The Bachelor," Haitian-born Jubilee Sharpe became an early standout among the contestants, briefly buoying hopes that a black woman would have a shot at the final rose or title of "The Bachelorette." But her initial success provoked jealous sniping from her housemates, who spoke about her in language that, to many viewers, had racial connotations. Sharpe wasn't right for bachelor Ben Higgins because she wouldn't be "friends with all the other soccer moms," said one blond contestant. Sharpe was eliminated two weeks later.
Still, she lasted much longer than the average black contestant on '"The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette." A recent survey by Fusion found that 59% of black contestants leave the show within the first two episodes, which now run for 10 weeks, and that no black contestant had ever made it past Week 5.

Here's the chart from the Washington Post Chronicalling the number of People of Color in both the Bachelor and Bachelorette series


Here are two charts showing the number of People of Color contestants and winners from each episode.

Because producers typically cast a popular but rejected contestant as the next bachelor or bachelorette, this has created a "cycle [of] white contestants, white star," notes Andy Dehnart, editor of the website Reality Blurred.
Dubrofsky's research has also shown that there are fewer men of color on "The Bachelorette" than women of color on "The Bachelor," a disparity that she believes reinforces negative ideas about the romantic suitability of nonwhite men and the notion that white men are "saviors."
__________________________________________________
Duh, historically White women weren't allow to have relationships with men of Color and vice versa.  Such relationships are controversial to this day.  Think about shock radio Bob Dumas hateful commentary on White woman/Native American marriage in 2008.  Richard Cohen's racist article about Mayor DeBlasio and his family as well as the hateful commentary from YouTube users regarding the Cheerios Commercial featuring an interracial family back in 2013.  We really haven't progressed when it comes to interracial/interethnic relationships.
___________________________________________________
The truly groundbreaking thing, Dubrofsky added, would be a season featuring a nonwhite star and predominantly diverse contestants. For now, however, "the story of love on 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette' is about two white people finding love."
___________________________________________________
So True! Black relationships need to be shown on TV more. Media also need to show more People of Color in love as well as interracial couples on TV but that's wishful thinking as long as racism/white supremacy shape our lives including romance.

Sean "Puffy" Combs Opening Up "Bad Boy" High!

Mr. Combs opens up a charter school in Harlem.

The media mogul's latest endeavor: Opening up a charter school.

Sean "Puffy" Combs, known as Puff Daddy/Diddy told the junk food media that he's going bring Hartford's Capital Prep Charter School to Harlem. He wants to turn an abandoned building in Harlem into a school for social justice. The school will cater to high school students from 6th grade to 12th grade.

Combs is co-founding the school with Steve Perry, a recognized name in education reform who has sparred with union leaders and made TV appearances such as on CNN's "Black in America."  Perry founded a public magnet campus in Hartford, Conn., in 2005, and a charter in Bridgeport, Conn., founded in 2015. Charter schools are publicly funded and can be privately operated.

Combs provided office space and staff in New York to launch the school, Perry said. Initially, those staffers canvassed the neighborhood for support. Perry said he hasn't asked Combs to donate his money to the school, and the musician's day-to-day involvement is still to be determined.

Teachers are called illuminators because they're more than just instructors, said Capital Prep Harlem Principal Danita Jones.

He's accepting students this session.

This is the media mogul's first attempt at opening up an institution for disadvantaged youth.

The Law Catches Cold Blooded Killer Who Bucked Friend!


Cold blooded killer murders his friend in Dayton, Ohio. May face a the gas house if they charge him with capital murder.

In the rust belt city of Dayton, Ohio, the law says that Easter weekend was probably the most violent of the month. There were numerous shootings in the community. My hometown is facing some real issues with gun violence. Of course, the Congress won't do a damn thing about it.

There was shooting in the Westwood neighborhood. A man was shot in the chest and tried to flee. He would end up crashing into a pole on route to a hospital. The victim Gary Tisdale was pronounced dead on the scene.

Gary Tisdale was murdered by a cold blooded killer.
His former friend Michael Martin was booked in the Montgomery County lockup on charges of felonious assault, carrying concealed weapons, and having weapons under disability (as a felon),

This happened near the busy intersection of James H. McGee Boulevard and West Third Street.

The passengers managed to escape gunfire but were really ecstatic about this.

The killer may had an argument with the victim.

Dayton police presser Lt. Bill Keller said this act was senseless.

"There was a dispute some blocks over - and one guy shot the other guy in the chest. He drove away in his car with a couple passengers and due to his injuries, he crashed. At this point he has passed."

So far there probably over 2,000 shootings this month alone. It's unfortunate that we have these issues in the United States. We're leading the way in violence.

GUN CRIME IS THE NUMBER ONE THREAT IN THE UNITED STATES.

Martin is innocent until proven guilty. Based on being a felon with a firearm, a murder charge could put this killer in the gas house. LIFE in the iron college may be the only way out of the gas house. He's already assured the that option if he's found guilty of the charges.

World News Today send our condolences to the family of Gary Tisdale.

Clerk Faces Murder Charges For Bucking Shoplifter!

Store owner kills shopper. He faces a murder charge. He claims it was "self-defense". 

The law warns residents never become a hero if you're facing a potential threat. It's best to protect yourself from an attack. If you're cornered or force to take action, do so safely. It could be justified only if the threat can't allow you to escape.

Now it seems like you can't take actions into your own hands. A Washington state clerk faces a murder rap for bucking an alleged shoplifter.

The clerk claims that its was an act of self-defense.
Shooting in a Seattle-area convenience store.
Pierce County sheriff says that the evidence points to a cold-blooded killing.

Min Sik Kim of Spanaway was booked in the county lockup on a high class murder charge. He decided to handle an alleged shoplifter with the firearm. Jakeel Mason was the victim. The 21-year old man was shot in the back and he posed no threat to Kim or his business.

The victim was unarmed. This killer claimed that his business Pacific Quickmart was a target of chronic theft and robberies.

Kim says that the victim was trying to steal cigarettes. They got into a tussle and the victim pushed the killer to the ground. He claimed that the victim tried to reach for the killer's firearm.

Jakeel Mason in 2014.
He and his wife wanted to show the thieves that they're not going to take theft lying down. They decided to use their firearms to stroke fear in Black shoppers who loiter too much. They wanted to show Black shoppers that they're not going to allow them to steal from them.

The law said that the video shows a store clerk profiling a shopper. The video  shows that the struggle started when the store clerk punching the victim and the victim goes to leave the store, the killer puts the slugs in him.

The killer's wife Suel, got into a violent confrontation with an alleged robber. She was grazed by a slug. She was treated for the injuries. The robber got away. This happened last month.

Okay, Detective Ed Troyer speaks on this.

"We know that just the previous month that his wife was shot at in a robbery, we understand that. That probably leads to high emotions and people carrying weapons, but if you're going to carry weapons you have to have the responsibility of carry that weapon. We can't have shoplifts turn into homicides."

The victim had a criminal history. Mason plead guilty to attempted burglary and trying to abduct a 6-year old girl.

Kim will face the judge soon on second degree murder. These charges could land Kim in the iron college for the rest of his LIFE.

Kim is innocent until proven guilty.

If the alleged suspect stole something, it's best to avoid confrontation. If the suspect attacks you and you try to defend yourself by using deadly force, then the law could determine if the encounter is justified or a criminal act.

An eerie reminder of the tragic death Latasha Harlins. Around the Rodney King beating in 1992, a teen was killed by a store clerk in a South Los Angeles liquor store.  The killer Soon Ja Du murdered Latasha after a confrontation over a stolen bottle of orange juice. The killer claimed that the teen punched her.

The law concluded that the killing was justified and Du was released. This along with the dismissal of LAPD officers accused of beating King sparked the Los Angeles riots.

World News Today send our condolences to the family of Jakeel Mason.

The Law Caught The U.S. Capitol Threat! Now Who Gets The Blame For It?

larry dawson, larry dawson capitol, larry dawson dc, larry dawson minimum wage
Terrorist panicked Washington, DC with a pellet gun. The terrorist caused a panic at the U.S. Capitol in a politically motivated attack.

There was a shooting at the U.S. Capitol today. A terrorist panicked Washington, DC with a toy gun.

The incident allowed innocent civilians at the Capitol Visitor Center get injured. The DC Capitol Police put the threat down.

Officers shot and injured the threat around 3pm after he entered the north screening area of the Capitol Visitor Center and drew a weapon. It turns out that the terrorist had a pellet gun. So I am guessing he was trying to commit suicide by cop.

The terrorist was taken to a local hospital and was being treated for his injuries. An uninvolved bystander was injured and taken to a local hospital. The terrorist was a former pastor at St. Luke’s Community Church in Nashville, according to his Facebook page and the church’s website.
Panic in Washington, DC.
The terrorist cause the Capitol to shut down, the White House to shut down. It disrupted traffic along Interstate 395 and Interstate 695. Washington, DC was fearing that this was an act of terrorism caused by a Muslim.

Of course, that's what our conservative agitators in the junk food media were hoping for.

They wanted to continue this tongue flexing of how they can stop the so-evil "radical" Islam.

The terrorist is named Larry Russell Dawson. He's a man from Tennessee who was a Prophet of God.

Now he's a Black man, a Christian extremist and a legal owner of a firearm. Who's gonna get the blame for this?


In the wake of the DC Capitol shooting, the suspect was caught. Who takes the blame in this controversy?

Barack Obama
#BlackLivesMatter
Muslims
Liberals
Conservatives
NRA
The Shooter
Mental Issues

Tell you what! Congress won't move the needle on gun violence. Even though this threat was considered a nut job, this stuff is happening way too much. This terrorist could have been strapped with explosives and would have been a perfect example of a suicide bomber.

Yeah, since he's a Christian extremist, you won't hear much about that. Since he's complaining about raising the minimum wage, a goal liberals want accomplished, conservatives will single out President Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton for this terrorist actions.

Of course, when this terrorist is released from the hospital, he will face federal charges. The charges could put this terrorist in federal time out for LIFE.

The terrorist is innocent until proven guilty.

World News Today sends our prayers to those injured in this senseless act of ignorance.



The Ugly Side Of Politics Always Begins With Roger Stone!

Ted Cruz is squirming.

The Ted Cruz campaign is totally pissed at the allegations that the presidential candidate had numerous affairs with staffers and agitators in the media. They blame Donald Trump and his biggest supporter Roger Stone for spreading the rumor.

Ted Cruz singled out Trump and Stone for sending the story to the National Enquirer. The tabloid has been questioned before for shoddy journalism. But it's been actually on it when it came to Gary Hart, Gary Condit, John Edwards and Jesse Jackson having numerous affairs.

Ted Cruz spoke on it.

"I want to be crystal clear: these attacks are garbage. For Donald J.Trump to enlist his friends at the National Enquirer and his political henchmen to do his bidding shows you that there is no low Donald won't go. These smears are completely false, they're offensive to Heidi and me, they're offensive to our daughters, and they're offensive to everyone Donald continues to personally attack. Donald Trump's consistently disgraceful behavior is beneath the office we are seeking and we are not going to follow.

The National Enquirer published a story. It is a story that quoted one source on the record: Roger Stone, Donald Trump's chief political advisor. Let me be clear, this National Enquirer story is garbage. It is complete and utter lies. It is a tabloid smear, and it is a smear that has come from Donald Trump and his henchmen. It is attacking my family, and what is striking is Donald 's henchman, Roger Stone, had for months been foreshadowing that this attack was coming. It's not surprising that Donald Trump's tweet occurs the day before the attack comes out. And I would note that Mr. Stone is a man who has 50 years of dirty tricks behind him. He's a man for whom a term was coined for copulating with a rodent. Well let me be clear: Donald Trump may be a rat, but I have no desire to copulate with him. And this garbage does not belong in politics. The National Enquirer has endorsed Donald Trump, has said he must be President. And so Donald, when he's losing, when he's scared, when Republicans are uniting against him, decdies to peddle sleaze and slime. You know, Donald is fond of giving people nicknames. With this pattern, he should not be surprised to see people calling him, 'Sleazy Donald'".

Thank god I slept through GOP Sundays. I normally get up to watch the Republicans make idiots of themselves on television. They get 3:1 coverage on Sunday shows.

Republicans are fighting over the immaturity of the campaigns. The Republicans are losing faith that Trump, Cruz and John Kasich could win the presidency.

With a pending brokered convention and the talk of Republicans not supporting the nominee, the odds of the civil war reaching critical mass is VERY LIKELY.
Mastermind of dirty, sexy, money. Roger Stone classics.
Roger Stone is a political sleazebag. He's the guy obsessed with President Barack Obama's birth certificate. He's the guy who toss Matt Drudge the Hillary Clinton coughing fits. He obsessed with allegations of Bill Clinton raping women while he was in the White House.

He's the guy who leaked the 2008 tape of John Kasich getting upset with a cop in Columbus, Ohio.

Many conservatives are split with this type of politics. If it goes against a Democrat, they in favor of all the dirty tricks. But if it goes against a Republican, then you're kind of split.

Glenn Beck, Mark Levin and many other conservative agitators in the junk food media hate Roger Stone and Donald Trump.

They believe that Ted Cruz is the only true conservative able to bring Republicans together.

They question Donald Trump's bombastic and fiery rhetoric. They seriously fear that Trump could damage the Republican Party for years.

Obama: Mitch McConnell's Inept Leadership Dooms America!

Dirty politician faces an onslaught of criticism from Pres. Obama, the public and fellow Republicans who fear they may lose in competitive senate races.

Two weeks in and no budging on the Merrick Garland nomination for the Supreme Court.

Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said in the junk food media that the nomination will be for the next president. It's pretty much pissed off the president and the Democrats. President Barack Obama in final year still at work. He may be a lame duck, but he's not sulking about being called that.

His job approval right now sits in the mid 50s.

Obama is still constitutionally entitled to have a nominee confirmed to the Court.

The Democrats are saying that Republicans are inept and they can't govern. They fear the conservative outrage brewing if they give in to the public's demand to nominate a justice to the high court.

The court's swing is somewhat conservative. Now that Antonin Scalia passed away, Republicans feared that Obama's pick for the Supreme Court could swing the court into a progressive direction.

Conservatives are outraged over Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) complaining about the senate not holding hearings on Garland.

The Garden City Telegram reported that Moran told a small group gathered in a Cimarron, Kan., courthouse on Monday that GOP senators “should interview Garland and have a hearing on his nomination,” in the paper’s words.
Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) warns Republicans that the plan to stop Obama's court pick will backfire.
“I can’t imagine the president has or will nominate somebody that meets my criteria, but I have my job to do,” Moran said, according to the report. “I think the process ought to go forward.”

Another Kansas paper, the Dodge City Daily Globe, reported that Moran was even more explicit in comments to a Rotary Club there: “I think we have the responsibility to have a hearing, to have the conversation and to make a determination on the merit,” he said.

He says that he rather vote against Garland than hold his nomination up. He understands that if a Republican wins the presidency, the Democrats will block nominees for the Court.

The partisan gridlock affecting Washington, DC is pathetic. I mean Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) are worthless politicians and leaders.

The Republicans also trying to cock block a recess appointment to the Court. The president could impose a recess nomination if the Republicans hold firm on their threat.

Here's a poll for you


Should the U.S. Senate confirm Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court?

Yes. President Barack Obama is entitled to have a nominee confirmed to the Supreme Court. Republicans should stop playing games and get to work. It will backfire if Republicans refuse to confirm.
No. President Barack Obama's nominee is not going to be confirmed anyway. Republicans should wait until a new president is sworn in. The Supreme Court's decisions could affect the country if Obama's nominee is too polarizing.

I really hope that the Senate come to its senses and confirm Obama's nominee.

omarosa-trump
TV's iconic villain Omarosa comes out in favor of The Donald.

The most controversial contestant on The Apprentice came out in favor of her old boss. Omarosa, the celebrity agitator who is an ordained minister came in favor of Donald Trump. She is fiercely defending him from the accusations of being sexist,

This little spat between Trump and Cruz has dominated the junk food media's attention.

Trump retweeted an offensive image of Heidi Cruz next to his current wife Melania and it set off  a shitstorm of criticism from Republicans and Ted Cruz himself.

Now his former castmate from The Apprentice says this is all bullshit.

Omarosa, the famed diva of the first season endorsed Trump for president. Omarosa Manigualt is reality television agitator, media analysis and ordain pastor. She was voted by most critics as the most nastiest villain in television.

She slams Cruz for being melodramatic. She also took aim at Megyn Kelly for being such a diva.

Basically Omarosa is saying that her friend and mentor Donald J. Trump isn't a mypobic, sexist, xenophobic, racist dick.

She also hit the junk food media for saying that Trump's rhetoric is considered racist.

She was on CNN with Don Lemon. The debate got a little heated. Don got so frustrated with the filibustering he actually scolded her.

Omarosa was once engaged to the late actor Michael Clarke Duncan. He passed away in 2012. She has secured a deal with GSN to host a game show.

She is a native of Youngstown, Ohio and attended Ohio's Central State University and Howard University. She has a bachelor's degree in communication and broadcast journalism.
