Tyra courts controversy with Top Models in ‘Black face’

Source: HuffPost

Are you guys offended?

Here are some quotes I pulled from HuffPost:

“What happens when men and women from different places come together? Babies! Lots of babies that are from different cultures. A mix. Hapa. Hapa means half in Hawaiian.”

“Every outfit is not necessarily of what that culture is wearing now. It might not even be a necessary exact of what they’ve worn in the past. It’s a fashion interpretation of it.”

Shots Fired at Immigrant Hater Lou Dobbs Family Home

Did he expect candy and flowers? All the racist rhetoric has finally caught up with him and now he is looking for sympathy. CNN has to get rid of this guy pronto:

“Three weeks ago this morning, a shot was fired at my house where I live,” he said. “My wife was standing out and that followed weeks and weeks of threatening phone calls….this shot was fired with my wife not, I don’t know, 15 feet away and we had had threatening phone calls that I decided not to report because I get threatening phone calls.

I now – it’s become part of a way of life – the anger, the hate, the vitriol, but it’s taken a different tone where they’ve threatened my wife. They’ve now fired a shot at my house while my wife was standing next to the car. It’s become something else.”

Another week, another teacher busted for f#cking the students! The phenomenon continues this time in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Funny thing is I have a 12 yr.old son (who turns 13 in February) and I am trying to how he could be sexually attractive to a grown woman. He is very handsome kid but a kid nonetheless. Still will not understand this alarming trend for the life of me.

Marc Ecko Loses Ecko Brand, Company Sold to Pay Off Creditors

Funny thing is I have seen many business shows where they have interviewed him on his brilliant business acumen. Anyway here is the story on his fall from grace in the business world:

via Gawker

In one way, Marc Ecko‘s a role model: He started with style and a dream and made it to the top of pop fashion. In a more accurate way, Marc Ecko is a walking “What Not to Do” guide.

The NYP reports todaythat Ecko’s finally lost control of his own brand. He was forced to sell off a controlling stake in Ecko, middle America’s most familiar hip-pop fashion line in order to raise cash to pay off creditors. It’ll help the feeble brand hobble on, but it won’t behis.

This really makes his decision to build himselfa 280,000 square foot office with an in-house basketball court and spend 750k on a souvenir baseball and live in a huge Italian villa-style Jersey mansion appear a bit financially imprudent. But none of that was as bad as his decision to take what was once an actual cool, crediblehip hop clothing brand (I remember when it was “ECHO” with an “H,” yo), and turn it into something that took up entire Kids’ sections in middle American malls.


Former NBA Antoine Walker star Blows Thru $100 Million, Creditors On His Back for $4 Million

This is not a strange story at all. Most NBA players, nearly 60 percent, go broke after 5 years after their playing days are over. Obviously they are not getting great advice about how to manage money at that magnitude.

I have posted an in depth story previously about this phenomenon previously about how the multiple luxury cars, baby momma’s,inexperienced family and entourage members running multi-millions athletes into the ground. Here is another shocking story of how former NBA’er Antoine Walker literally blew thru 100 million dollars and is being chased down for $4 million dollars from creditors in addition to being arrested in Vegas for check fraud:

via Yahoo

“[Walker] liked to move in an outsized entourage; his mother estimates that, during his playing days, he was supporting 70 friends and family members in one way or another. And speaking of his mother, he built her a mansion in the Chicago suburbs, complete with an indoor pool, 10 bathrooms, and a full-size basketball court. […]
Living at the Bishops Forest condominium complex in Waltham during the Celtics season, Walker turned the pavement surrounding his home into a virtual luxury car lot — two Bentleys, two Mercedes, a Range Rover, a Cadillac Escalade, a bright red Hummer. Often, the vehicles were tricked out with custom paint jobs, rims, and sound systems at considerable added expense. He also collected top-line watches — Rolexes and diamond-encrusted Cartiers.”
