Young black girls mimic the behavior of Reality TV Stars

black kids and white kidWhen I watched the video of the thirteen year old black girl from Texas beating up another teenager who apparently didn’t want to fight, I instantly thought of the barbaric behavior from reality tv shows like Love and Hip-Hop, Atlanta Housewives, and Bad girls club.

We may all turn our heads from the viral videos that are constantly being passed around as if they are achievements, but for whatever reason black women refuse to turn their heads from reality tv.

It’s time we all wake up and start raising more bail money because if our children are consistently exposed to this behavior than we’ll consistently have a problem in the black community.

Chicago Drug Dealer Has “Crack Addicts” Lined Up Around The Corner

trapline

Chicago drug dealer ‘James Tripplet’ has a line around the corner for his drugs. It seems as if Mr. Tripplet is truly setting the standard for dope business supply and demand

According to My Fox Chicago:

Now 42 people are facing state or federal drug charges for their alleged roles in supplying and distributing heroin around West Grenshaw and Independence in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

Among them is the 33-year-old Triplett, also known as “Trell,” who authorities said controlled the drug market in the area.

Investigators even included a photo in a federal criminal complaint spanning more than 200 pages. They said the photo depicts a line of people waiting on June 16 to get their hands on heroin supplied by Triplett’s organization in the 3700 block of West Grenshaw.

The photo was taken just south of the Eisenhower Expressway, which has come to be known as “Heroin Highway.”

trap2The feds said Triplett’s suppliers sometimes put the heroin in bags with logos that included green Playboy bunnies, Hershey kisses, basketballs, Batman, black pandas or “purple ladies.”

“Early this morning, they woke me up,” said North Lawndale resident Precious Archer.

Archer said around 7 o’clock, four agents were knocking on her door near the 3700 block of West Grenshaw, which is ground zero of the alleged drug ring.

“They had pictures of people, basically asking did we see this person,” she said.

Authorities say the heroin was diluted to increase profits.

“This is one of those locations that we always talk about, a drive up location on the West Side where people come in from the suburbs to buy narcotics and return,” Supt. Garry McCarthy said.

The DEA said the drug was obtained from Mexico. Its sale generated nearly a quarter of a million dollars every month.

“This multi-agency investigation…represents a significant hammer-blow to the open-air drug markets operating in North Lawndale and Douglas Park,” McCarthy said.

DEA Special Agent-in-Charge Dennis Wichern, who worked on the case, said: “Every day, one person in Chicago dies from a heroin overdose.”

Chicago police and Drug Enforcement Administration agents assigned to the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force led the investigation. Sixteen people face federal charges. They include Triplett, who is charged with drug conspiracy and faces a minimum of 10 years in prison if convicted. Another 26 face state charges.

This is a very sad story. May God help those lined up and those that are about to be lined up in prison for their contribution.

Remembering the Victims of the Charleston Massacre

shootingvictims2 By: Derricaaa

 

On Wednesay, June 16th, nine innocent lives were taken due to an act of hate. These type of tragedies continue to take place in America, as the issue at hand continues to be denied and overlooked. As America continues to mourn the loss of these people that were gunned down while worshiping in the house of the Lord, we will keep the families lifted up in prayer.

According to BBC News

Cynthia Hurdcynthia sc

Cynthia Hurd, 54, was a beloved employee of the Charleston County Public Library for 31 years.

“Cynthia was a tireless servant of the community who spent her life helping residents, making sure they had every opportunity for an education and personal growth,” the library wrote in a post to its website on Thursday.

The library closed all of its locations on Thursday in her honour.

A city council member said on Thursday that the branch of the Charleston library where Hurd worked was going to be re-named the Cynthia Hurd Regional Library, calling her a “true public servant”.

She was known as a person dedicated to teaching and helping others read. She is survived by her husband Arthur, the Post and Courier reports.

Her brother, former North Carolina state senator Malcom Graham, said it was a small comfort his sister died in the church she loved so much. She had been going to Emanuel AME Church every Sunday and Wednesday since her childhood.

She was looking forward to retirement and her 55th birthday, which would have been Sunday.

Earlier this year, he lent his voice to a campaign for police to wear body cameras in the wake of the deadly officer-involved shooting of unarmed black man Walter Scott.

“I always felt God had called me to serve within the church because of what the church stands for,” he told the Charleston Post and Courtier in 2010. “This has always been home.”

Pinckney served in South Carolina government since 1997. He attended Allen University in Columbia, South Carolina.

She served as a sexton at the church to keep the building clean and loved gospel music.

“She was a God-fearing woman,” said granddaughter Najee Washington, who lived with her grandmother. “She was the heart of the family, and she still is. She is a very caring, giving and loving woman. She was beautiful inside and out”.

MiMi Faust: Black Women On The Modern Day Auction Block !!!

 

MiMiI stopped watching reality television about a year ago. Although I’ve chosen to stop watching reality TV there are millions of African American women who’ve chosen to support the sad, uneducated, angry, and fighting image of the black woman.

When I heard about MiMi Faust’s sex tape – I thought it was a joke or rumor.  Well, maybe I was only hoping it was a joke or rumor. When I think of MiMi’s role on the show, I always considered her to be one of the more grounded women on the show in comparison to some of the other women.  Also, MiMi always stated that being a mother was the most important role that she played, despite being on a television.

Now three seasons into the toxic display of television – she has a leading role in porn.

Black women have always played the role of the help – our ancestral blood line in America has produced an unconscious lack of self-worth – Our masters use to rape us while our men were forced to watch or die.  Our children were snatched from us, now we have a society – where our men still watch our suffering, parenting no longer holds significance in a woman’s life, and every chance we get we have to be “Auction Block Ass Niggers.”

Many people have argued that MiMi’s sex tape is a replica of Kim Kardashian’s.

It’s NOT!

Here’s why?

Kim Kardashian came from a family of wealth and not the wealth your “good aunt has with the good job.” The Kardashian clan had enough money to party with “A” list celebrities, judges, doctors, and the HILTON franchise.

Half of you niggas can’t get a room at the HITLON without checking for the best rate – and this white woman Kim Kardashian grew up with “HILTON’S” children!

Mimi’s world and Kim’s world will always be far apart.  Kim Kardashian will always get paid 100,000 thousand to attend an event and MiMi will always get 10,000 thousand to attend that same event.

How much is a nigger worth?!?

A SLAVE AUCTION in Savannah Georgia during the year of 1859 SOLD A WOMAN with a lame left foot for 695 dollars. (Equivalent to about 15,000 dollars today)

How much is a Nigger Worth?!?!

How much is a Nigger worth?!?!

Auction block ass thinking amongst black women must stop!

Why must black women put a price on everything? We’re willing to fight on television, we’re willing to be the side chick on television, and we’re willing to share our intimate sexual moments on television!

The difference between MiMi Faust and Kim K isn’t solely race, but  Kim K will leave her daughter generational wealth, her children will stand on a house hold name built from the labor of her father, but niggers like MiMi Faust will only leave a legacy that can pause, rewind, fast forward, and play on a television!

Emmitt Till’s mother was asked by the President of the United States – to not have a funeral with an open casket, but she declined – because some things in life don’t have a price to it.

African Americans supposedly make up 12% of this Country, but we’re 90% of America’s poor and 100% of America’s whore. Black women numbers take the lead in reference to newly HIV cases, but go ahead – reality TV stars – keep encouraging and promoting sex before marriage, shame in the name of fame,  keep promoting every negative thing that keeps our sons locked up and buried and our daughters pregnant in their teens!

Keep Being Niggers!

Keep the Auction block thinking, and one day MiMi’s daughter will follow in the same footsteps as her mother because the mother is the first teacher of every child!

MiMi Faust could have used her platform for anything in this world, but all she could come up with was “sex on camera.”

 

Behind Every Rich Black Man There’s A White Woman!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was recently contacted by the creator of A field Negro.com  and he shared some interesting things to me about the black man. Below there are lots of pictures of America’s prestigious African American men, and with them all you will find a white woman!!!

What does this mean for the black woman? What does this mean for the mothers who birthed these men?

The black woman is the last woman to try interracial dating-this collage should show all black women that finding a brothers love is no easy task-it’s time that black women start exploring all races for dating?

I’m not sure if I’m being safe about my stance against interracial dating- but I’m not for or against it. I know that I’m for Happiness, family, and love-but as a black woman these pictures “WILL MAKE YOU THINK”!

Dennis Rodman’s New Talent Is Writing Children Books

Hopefully this won’t be the book cover…

Dennis Rodman Writes A Children’s Book

Don’t expect Dennis Rodman to look to prepaid cards or payday loans to help pay his massive child support debt…..cause he’ll be writing children’s books and selling them to your kids.

Would you let NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman teach life lessons to your kids? The question may soon be answered when the former basketball star releases his own children’s book entitled: Dennis The Wild Bull. Reportedly, Rodman wants to inspire kids by writing about he overcame some of the challenges he faced as a young person. The Huffington Post reports:

Dennis Rodman has staked his claim in the literary world before, penning four autobiographical titles, including 2005′s “I Should Be Dead By Now.”

But the Hall of Famer’s newest work, “Dennis The Wild Bull,” isn’t the latest account of his raucous life, it may actually be a prequel — written for children, TMZ reports.

Details on the children’s book, which is slated to be released later this year, are minimal, but according to a website dedicated to the work, it will “convey good lessons to children based on Dennis’ own experiences as a world class athlete while overcoming obstacles as a child.” Rodman teamed up with author/screenwriter Dustin Warburton and illustrator Dan Monroe to create the book.

Would you buy his book for your children?

No Ball Playing In Harlem: Rucker Park Basketball Tournament Shut Down By NYPD

Well-No ball playing in Harlem! According to Hip-Hop Wired: You can’t say this wasn’t at least a possibility. Yesterday evening (July 30th), the NYPD prevented the Entertainers Basketball Classic from commencing, citing safety concerns, reports DNAInfo. Last week, a suspect now identified as Ricardo Laing of White Plains, NY, shot five people during the tournament held at the legendaryHolcombe Rucker Park in Harlem. Despite additional security being acquired by the tournament’s organizers, the authorities were not having it, and the schedule games were cancelled.

“They came in here and said you have to get out,” said Entertainers founder and CEO Greg Marius. “It’s unfair. We are an international tournament.”

According to Marius, the usually violence free tournament is being unfairly stigmatized.

Marius said he felt police were trying to force him to get people to cooperate with the investigation, a power he feels he doesn’t have.

Police did not immediately comment Monday evening.

Hundreds of people could be seen running during a video of the shooting posted on WorldStarHipHop.com. NBA free agent and former New York Knick Nate Robinson was at the event but was not injured.

Marius said that on the day of the shooting there were fewer police officers and fewer metal barricades than in years past. 

On Monday, two police officers stood near the entrance to the court, and a mobile command center and police van and car also sat outside the park.

Marius said the NYPD’s refusal to let the tournament continue was confusing because the alleged shooter is in custody and the gathering is normally free from violence.

“The last fist fight was in 1995 and we’ve never had a shooting,” Marius said. “The movie theater is still open,” he added, referring to the Aurora, Colo. shooting at a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Marius said three NBA players were interested in stopping by the tournament this week.

“They are not afraid because they know we are a safe tournament,” Marius said.

Some of the disappointed fans that came out to see yesterday’s games included players from a basketball all the way in Italy. Check out some photos from yesterday at Rucker Park in the gallery.
