First Lady Michelle Obama Governors Ball 2012 425x530 Digital Photo of the Day | First Lady Michelle Obama Governors Ball

Governors' Dinner at the White House

The first Lady looking lovely in a pale, cream-coloured gown had a crystal-embellished bodice in a design of leaves and flowers, and a chiffon bow at the shoulder.

President Obama and the first lady were hosting the black tie dinner as part of the National Governors Association winter meeting. Although the first lady looked stunning, it was not enough to keep the tongues from wagging about the high calorie menu served at the event. Instead of the delightful mealserved some folks would have preferred the first lady to serve lettuce and carrot sticks.

Chris Brown

If anyone recall when Mayor Barry said “bitch set me up,’ this is the same scenario going down with Chris Brown. No one want their daughter face bashed in but not one of us was in the car. Anyone that has ever gotten in trouble with in the law. Call the cops. Report anything and your ass is  sitting there explaining some new shit simply because you have an record on file. You should know there is an asinine individual waiting around the corner ready to hang your ass high with the police department. I believe the youngster is trying to redeem himself…fuck all the naysayers, asswipes and folks wanting a taste of his ass. He was a boy and deserves another chance. I said it! I got some issues with the incident but I was not there and neither was you.

I believe this was an incident where chick knew the law and there are a lot folks that feel some way about this young man. Ole girl knew dude would get in trouble if she reported an incident….scanky shit. #justsaying

While Bannister was well known in the artistic community of his adopted home of Providence, Rhode Island and admired within the wider East Coast art world (he won a bronze medal for his large oil “Under the Oaks” at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial), he was largely forgotten for almost a century for a complexity of reasons, principally connected with racial prejudice.

Black History Month | Who Was Leroy Wilton Homer Jr.?

Leroy Homer Black History Month | Who Was Leroy Wilton Homer Jr.?

LeRoy Homer, Jr.

In September, America marked the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. A tragedy that seems as if it only happened a short while ago. One thing that some people might observe and question is what was the impact of 9/11 on African Americans. The majority of 9/11 media focus has been on white families and white children.

Who was Leroy Wilton Homer Jr.?

Leroy Wilton Homer Jr. was an African-American first officer operating the flight that tragically fell in an act of terrorism in Shanksville, PA on Sept. 11, 2001.

Pilot Homer’s plane was the 4th attacked that day.

The Long Island, New York native dreamed of flying as a child. He was only 15 years old when he started flight instruction in a Cessna 152. By the time he was 18, Homer had obtained his private pilot’s license. That same year, he joined the Air Force and became a second lieutenant. He served in Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield and later supported efforts in Somalia . During his tenure, Homer was named the 21st Air Force Air Crew Instructor of the Year. Homer achieved the rank of captain before his honorable discharge from active duty in 1995.

For his actions on board Flight 93, Homer received many posthumous awards and citations, including honorary membership in the historic Tuskegee Airmen, the Congress Of Racial Equality’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Award, the SCLCDrum Major for Justice Award and the Westchester County Trailblazer Award.

Ironically, Homer was depicted by a white actor in the film, United 93, the drama that told the story of the passengers and crew, their families on the ground and the flight controllers on the day of the attacks.

Homer is survived by his wife, Melodie, and daughter, Laurel.

Time magazine last week published Beyond 9/11: Portraits of Resilience, a photo-rich commemorative edition dedicated to 9/11’s 10th anniversary. No identifiable Afr ican Americans are pictured in its 64 pages.

America just does not get it. There are two kinds of sins: sins of commission and sins of omission.

Thank you Dr. Ruth for the email.

What Say Ye To These Things? Whitney Houston’s Funeral

Tyler Perry During Whitney Houstons Funeral Going Home Ceremony What Say Ye To These Things? Whitney Houstons Funeral

Tyler Perry During Whitney Houston's Funeral & Going Home Ceremony

I know this grief. When Tyler Perry gave his words of expression. I knew what he meant. As should you all. God bless the Houston family. Four years ago she told him about her life, the things that made her sad. But the lord…..and the conversation went on. But the lord.….grace will carry you a long way.

Out of your belly will flow rivers of living water

John 7:37-39
(37) Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.
(38) He that believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his belly will flow rivers of living water.”
(39) (But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him were about to receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Remembering Whitney Houston 426x530 Remembering Whitney 1963   2012

Remembering Whitney 1963 ~ 2012

 

Special Grammy Billboard cover is an tribute to “Remembering Whitney” 1963 ~ 2012. I have been listening to countless news reports, reading fake rumors and reading blogs. One thing is for certain, the family would like the opportunity to bury their daughter in peace. The Houston family does  get it. Allegedly, the fans are disgruntled they would not be allow to view Whitney Houston? This fan does respect the Houston family to have a private funeral. They believe you want to view the Homecoming of their beloved daughter, sister and the mother of Bobbi Kristina. Turn on CNN.  Please stay home, do not block up the highways and let the Houston family bury their child in peace. You can have a front seat row in front of your computers or televisions. Bring your own tissues. In lieu of flowers, balloons, teeshirts and junk that they have to pick up and throw away in the trash. Please send donations to “Whitney Houston Foundation for Children Inc.”
