Black Girl Missing...

As we all know, media coverage for missing persons is skewed towards young white females who are perceived as attractive. Often times the media completely ignores a missing black woman, attractive or not, regardless to her contributions to her community what she means to her family. I will not get into the obvious implication of value placed on the lives of white women vs blacks. I will say let's make enough noise. Luckily, I found out about this young lady because this is circling in the Nigerian-American community. I can only imagine how many other missing Black women I don't know about.

Let's change this today.
If you know anything about the whereabouts of Tosin Oyelowo call your local police department or alert the city of Charleston, SC Missing Persons department at 843-577-7434 or email Detective K. Stone of the Charleston Police Central Investigations Missing Persons Unit StoneK@charleston-sc.gov

No! TJ Holmes Leaving CNN

The very reason I am up early watching the news on a Saturday morning instead of reruns of the Sopranos is this man right here...T.J. Holmes.

Born Loutelious Ann Holmes, Jr. *cough*, T.J. is leaving for "other opportunities". I can't imagine what other opportunities he would want to pursue instead of entertaining me on weekends.


Oh well.

***UPDATE*** He's going to BET! This can be a good thing... maybe someone heard my cry for the return of BET nightly news, or anything respectable in general. Or this can be terrible. Period.

‎"No poor kids have good work habits unless they're illegal"

I've been missing, but with good reason!! In the meantime Uncle Herman has dropped out of the race for the republican presidential nomination amid attacks against his moral character. Newt Gingrich, very reason I think Herman Cain should have NOT dropped out (I mean this guy is moral slime... if we are going there),is now surging in the polls. Considering he is in the lead...when it matters...we should revisit his views particularly on child labor laws. Most especially, that he believes that poor kids should help clean bathrooms at school. Yes, let's kill the esteems of little one's by humiliating them among their peers. What happened to just working at McDonalds.
‎His quote "No poor kids have good work habits unless they're illegal" takes the cake. Just because you occasionally watch the news and live in a gentrified establishment does not mean that you KNOW poor people.
What kind of work ethic do rich kids have anyway? I hardly call what Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian did 'working'.
