In an very intense interview (sans Whoopi Goldberg), Omarosa speaks with the ladies on the View about her role in the White House and her commitment to helping the Black community. She also speaks about her upbringing in the hood and how gun violence has effected her life.
Fort Worth, TX — A video posted to Facebook Wednesday evening has quickly gone viral showing a Fort Worth cop involved in a violent arrest of a mother and her two teen daughters.
The incident began when Jacqueline Craig called police alleging that her neighbor assaulted her 7-year-old son. Craig told police that the neighbor claimed he saw the 7-year-old throw a piece of trash on the ground and when her son refused to pick it up, the adult male began choking him.
Yes, it is wrong to litter. However, choking someone else’s child over littering is most certainly not a just response. However, the cop could not have cared less about the assault as the first question out of his mouth is, “Why don’t you teach your son not to litter?”
“It doesn’t matter if he did or didn’t. It doesn’t give him the right to put his hands on him,” explained Craig.
“Why not?” callously replies the cop.
At this point, after the officer implies that an adult assaulting a child is perfectly fine if litter is involved, the argument begins to escalate.
The officer then says, “if you keep yelling at me you’re going to piss me off and I’m going to take you to jail.”
Who says Big Soulja ain’t from the hood? Let’s just say the fight with Chris Brown is probably over and he needs to focus on keeping his freedom. This also puts to rest (ironically from TMZ )that the guns were fake.
Soulja Boy is now facing a felony for the guns police found in his house during his December arrest … TMZ has learned.
The L.A. County D.A. just slapped him with 2 felonies — possession of an assault weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was also charged with a misdemeanor for receiving stolen property … cops say one of the guns in Soulja’s house was reportedly stolen from a cop car.
The assault weapon charge is for a Mini Draco AR-15 … which is illegal for anyone to possess in California.
If convicted Soulja could face more than 4 years in prison.
Civil Rights activist Angela Davis, Singer Madonna and march organiser Tamika Mallory were among the speakers at the Women’s March on Washington, in Washington DC, on Saturday.
SOT, Tamika Mallory, Co-Chair Women’s March on Washington (English): “We must be bold, the way you were bold to come here in these large numbers today. When you feel that we’re not taking care of one another properly, put your feelings aside, put your pride aside, and stand up for the most marginalised people in this society, because if you stand for them, you stand for all. Dr King said, ‘I will not remember the harsh words of my enemies, I will remember the silence of my friends.'”
SOT, Angela Davis, Civil Rights activist (English): “We dedicate ourselves to collective resistance, resistance to the billionaire mortgage profiteers and gentrifiers, resistance to the healthcare privateers, resistance to the attacks on muslims, on immigrants, resistance to the attacks on disabled people. Resistance to state violence perpretated by the police and through the prison-industrial complex.”
SOT, Madonna, singer (English): “To the rebellion, to our refusal – as women – to accept this new age of tyranny. Where not just women are in danger, but all marginalised people. Where being uniquely different, right now, might truly be considered a crime. It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the fuck up.”
Bria Myles broke the internet last week with a brand new photoshoot showcasing some very beautiful chocolate women at an unknown beach. This was a pleasant surprise due to the fact dark skinned women are consistently overlooked in current beauty standards and rarely get high profiled looks in magazines and music videos. Not sure when this will drop but Facet Studio will be the best resource to find out… Hit the jump from more of the photoshoot…

Chinese billionaire and Alibaba founder Jack Ma believes that improper distribution of funds and hyper inflated US military spending, not globalization or other countries “stealing” US jobs, is behind the economic decline in America.
Mexico’s government said it has extradited drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States, where he is wanted on drug trafficking and other charges.
The Foreign Relations Department has announced on Twitter that Guzman was being sent to the U.S. on Thursday, the day before Donald Trump is to be inaugurated as U.S. president.
The convicted Sinaloa cartel boss had been held most recently in a prison near the northern border city of Ciudad Juarez. He was recaptured a year ago after making a second brazen jailbreak and had fought extradition since then.
Did Jerry sell out or nah? If you ask Black Twitter it is a resounding yes. Imagine the cringe-worthy meeting between Jerry and the marketing executives at Popeyes when they loaded up the Powerpoint presentation and showed him the chicken helmet. Safe to say Colin Kaeperknick was nowhere in the vacinity. To see the actual commercial hit the jump..
Won’t all of this just move somewhere else on the web?
Sens. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who led the bipartisan Senate investigation into the website, said Backpage’s move to shutter its adult ads attested to the damning evidence their team uncovered.
“We reported the evidence that Backpage has been far more complicit in online sex trafficking than anyone previously knew,” they said in a statement.
“Backpage’s response wasn’t to deny what we said. It was to shut down their site. That’s not ‘censorship’ — it’s validation of our findings.”
Backpage.com, one of the world’s largest classified ad websites and a frequent target in the political battle against sex trafficking, closed its adult ads section Monday in the United States, claiming to be the victim of a government witch hunt.
The extraordinary move came shortly after the release of a scathing U.S. Senate report that accused Backpage of hiding criminal activity by deleting terms from ads that indicated sex trafficking or prostitution, including of children.
The abrupt closure came on the eve of the scheduled testimony of Backpage’s founders, Michael Lacey and James Larkin, and the site’s CEO, Carl Ferrer, before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs’ subcommittee on investigations.
Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.
She had one job. Strange that we see this happen with the few black movies that are nominated, not just by her but by Michael Keaton as well. She is remorseful but this coincidence raises my suspicions. Time for us to ditch these award shows.
I wonder if the Hillary Clinton supportin’ Black Fem Mafia will put their coins up? Somebody get Feminista Jones on the phone cause I need answers.

In Nick Cannon’s recent interview with VladTV, Vlad brings up the fact that Nick Cannon has been a celebrity since he was very young. Nick immediately dispels the notion that he is out of touch or “in a bubble.” “I’m on the ground level,” he said, “I do so much that people don’t know about…to make sure these young people have opportunities.” From there, Nick describes his career arc, from growing up in a rough neighborhood, to breaking onto Nickelodeon, to making money and gratifying his ego, and now to giving back to his community. He also states that while a lot of celebrities claim gangs, it’s a source of insecurity and that he “never wants to glorify it.”
