Rene passed away after battling cancer for a while. The next day, Celine lost her brother Daniel to the same deadly disease. This has been quite a month for the songstress and we wish her all the best. Losing two people that you love dearly can be extremely overwhelming.

Wendell Pierce Built 75 Homes For His Community

img_20160121_220706.jpg

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.”

Come Again? Sam Smith Accused Of Racist Remarks

Sam Smith screams ”Black C*nt!!” at someone outside Freedom Bar London according to a concert goer.

This is appalling to say the least. I’m really not sure what is going on these days but it seems as if things are going backwards.

Truthfully we would love to think the world has changed for the better but each day when we turn on the news or scroll through social media, someone new is caught up in racial scandals.

We like to look up to these celebrities as role models, although they tend to disappoint us more often than not. Racism is a refuge for the ignorant in the world , it seeks to divide and to destroy, it is the enemy of freedom, it should be stamped out permanently.

Sam Smith is a great artist but if the accusations of the monstrous comments made by him are true, we feel sorry for him.

Here are a few tweets from the singer where it seems like he is attempting to justify his foolish behavior without detailing the events that took place:

Tragic!

Come Again? Morris Chestnut’s Alleged Son Speaks Out

Dante Lamont Chestnut was born on March 26, 1988. Dante is very upset at his alleged father, Hollywood heartthrob, Morris Chestnut. textgram_1453071202.png

Apparently Morris inpregnanated Dante’s mother many years ago and allegedly left them behind to become a big star.

According to Dante, Morris and his mother briefly dated in high school. That is when Dante was conceived, supposedly.

Rumor has it that Morris has two children that he does not publicly claim, including Dante. These are said to be children made while married to his wife.

Dante blasted his alleged estranged father via social media, we assume in order to get his attention. If this story is at all true, it’s shameful and sad.

Do better as a community. Responsibility is not to be taken lightly. There are too many broken homes. Fatherless children have become much too common amongst our nation.
