2016 Snow Blizzard In Full Effect

img_20160124_035856.jpg

Friday night brought along the whitest winter that we’ve ever seen. The entire east coast is under massive amounts of snow.

Not only did the east coast area get buried but the south got a little bit of it too. In states such as New York, Maryland and Philadelphia, the residents are actually diving in and are completely buried to the point where you can’t see them.

Since majority of the citizens are undoubtedly snowed in, they decided to make the best out of a terrifying situation by participating in the snow challenge.

We have all literally been laughing out loud at the non-stop videos being posted on social media. The videos vary from jumping off roofs into the snow to hilarious swim competitions. Someone even captured a panda bear rolling around enjoying himself.

The vehicles are completely covered and one resident captured a photo of the snow way past the knob on the door, which is taller than many people. It’s quite unbelievable at this point but its great that they’re having fun!

Wendell Pierce Built 75 Homes For His Community

Native of New Orleans actor and activist Wendell Pierce talks about how insurance companies discouraged poor and black families from returning to New Orleans after Katrina by refusing to honor homeowner policies. Pierce, whose great-grandfather came to New Orleans as a slave in the 1800s, talks about how Allstate gave his parents just $400 after they paid premiums for 50 years. Pierce also writes about his family in his new book, “The Wind in the Reeds: A Storm, a Play, and the City That Would Not Be Broken.”

In 2005, when Katrina shockingly destroyed his old neighborhood, he returned to Pontchartrain Park to revitalize the neighborhood and has built 75 new homes and plans on doubling that number.

WENDELL PIERCE: “I remember the greatest crime that ever happened, I think, was 10 years ago, when none of the large insurance companies honored the homeowner policies. My parents paid Allstate for 50 years, when they moved into Pontchartrain Park in 1955 up to the day we evacuated, and we’re still paying after the flood, because my mother said it can burn down at any time. And for those 50 years of premiums, they received $400. They said, “That’s all we’re going to pay.” There was a lawsuit, a class-action lawsuit, years later that everyone participated in to try to get some sort of mediation, and we lost the class-action suit. So, all of those insurance companies that sold insurance to my parents for years, saying that “You will be made whole. Have some flood insurance, and along with your homeowners’ insurance, when you put them together, you will be made whole,” they only gave them $400 after 50 years of paying premiums.”

“It is the African-American aesthetic: in spite of the challenge, in spite of the oppression, I will survive. And that’s on display in New Orleans, and that’s the reason 10 years after the fact, we are back to where we are.”

Stacey Dash Is Not Here For The Black Community

In Response To The Oscar’s Lack of Diversity: Stacey Dash Boldly Says There Should Be No BET, NAACP Image Awards or Black History Month

Here is our thoughts on the issue:

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. There is no need to bash one another in order to be heard.
Stacy Dash is a soul lost in corporate America, that tried and almost succeeded in Hollywood.

It is clear that this woman is hurting from god knows what. Maybe a black person did her wrong in her past but to bash your own community is beyond comprehension.

At one point, Dash was a big part of our history and made us all proud, that a beautiful black queen could grace our television screens and take on roles side by side with white America.

Today, Stacey opens her mouth and spits out uneducated coonery every chance she gets.

You don’t have to agree with the struggle but you MUST respect it. We have come much to far as a race for idiotic comments to be made on national TV. Your brain should help you to think before you speak in any situation.

If it were not for the protests and battles we fought and won in history, Stacey would not be able to sit on Fox News today and speak her opinions.

So, Stacey we say to you, if it we’re not for BET, NAACP IMAGE AWARDS OR BLACK HISTORY MONTH, you amongst many black entertainers and leaders would not have had a platform in the first place.

This is what BET Network had to say in response to Dash’s ignorant comments:
