Celebrities Finally Step Up And Use Their Platform As Voices Against Injustice In America

In the past few weeks there has been tragedy after tragedy in a country that had us all under the impression of “Freedom”.

img_20160715_125352.jpg
African Americans are constantly victimized and descriminated against when we practically built America with our bare hands.
Last Tuesday a Baton Rouge native, husband and father by the name of Alton Sterling was gunned down at the hands of BRPD officers on camera. Sterling was selling CDs outside ofva supermarket with the permission of the store owner.
The police officers are seen on video slamming Alton to the ground while restraining both arms. Suddenly out of nowhere you can hear one officer yell “he got a gun” followed by him unloading six bullets into Alton’s chest.
From the video, it is evident that Sterling’s hands are empty and in no way shape or form was he holding a firearm.
The same day and to a nations disbelief, another African American male by the name of Philando Castile, was racially profiled against and pulled over in his vehicle. Philando explained to the Minnesota Police Officer that he had a gun in the vehicle but was legally licensed to carry.
From the video recording, Philando’s spouse is explaining to everyone that the officer asked him to get his license and as soon as he reached for the license, the officer shot him four times.
The entire encounter seems to be evident of coldblooded murder.
A few days later Alva Braziel was shot ten times by the Houston Police while walking down the street. Witnesses say that he was simply minding his business before being gunned down. I got a chance to view a short video of Braziel holding his hands in the air before being unloaded on.
Following these killings, the entire country is unsettled and constantly in fear of being shot by the very badge that vowed to protect and serve. All of that while families are left to bury their loved ones and children are now fatherless.
Celebrities such as Lebron James, Alicia Keys, Common, Beyonce, Queen Latifah, Tracee Ellis Ross, Chris Rock, The Game, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Yandy Smith, Pharrell Williams, Chris Brown Carmelo Anthony and more spoke messages of encouragement, hope, unity and political activism.
Snoop Dogg and The Game took to the streets of L. A. and unified longtime rival gang members, Crips and Bloods tobstepnup and protect their communities instead of destroying it.
Carmelo Anthony called on his fellow athletes to get serious about a fight against corruption in politics.
Yandy Smith-Harriss held a meeting of unity in New York.
Beyonce held a special vigil at her concert while the names of the many victims of police brutality displayed on a huge projected screen.
T. I. took to the streets of Atlanta and protested side by side with the citizens.
It is about time that these role models take on the positions of power they have and demand action, build our black communities and stand with the citizens in this ongoing struggle. They have the ability to organize and persuade change quicker than the average American which is one the most important decisions that they will ever make in their careers/lives. The revolution must be taken seriously by any means necessary.

Tennessee Sheriff Allegedly Blames Beyonce For Cops Deaths

Before you read this article…be aware that the particular Sheriff in question is under investigation for alleged illegal activities. — According to NY Daily News: A Tennessee sheriff is blaming Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime performance for a drive-by shooting outside of his home and the deaths of seven police officers.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/02/19/us/beyonce-police-boycott/index.html#

Sheriff Robert Arnold, an elected official in Rutherford County, has not been crazy in love with the star since she sang “Formation” at Super Bowl 50.

Arnold, who’s under FBI investigation for selling e-cigarettes to prisoners, said he thinks it’s why gunmen blasted rounds outside of his home on Monday night.

“With everything that’s happened since the Super Bowl, with law enforcement as a whole, I think we’ve lost five to seven officers, five deputy sheriffs since the Super Bowl, that’s what I’m thinking,” he told reporters Tuesday at a press conference. “You have Beyoncé’s video and that’s kind of bled over into other things about law enforcement.”

 

Beyoncé’s “Formation” video, which features shots of a sinking New Orleans police car, and her Super Bowl performance were criticized for having Black Panthers-inspired costumes.

 

Arnold argued that there was a correlation between her song and seven officers being killed nationwide.

 

“My comments reflect the violent and senseless killing of seven deputies in the U.S. since the show aired,” Arnold said in an email to The Tennessean.

Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold, is being investigated by the FBI for corruption charges.

Five officers were killed across the country in four days between Feb. 7 and Feb. 11, the day after Beyoncé’s performance — none of which have been linked to the song.

 

At Arnold’s home, he said his wife, his 3-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter were safe from the shooting, but still distraught by the potential danger.

 

“For this to happen at my house, it bothers me tremendously,” he said.

 

There were about eight shots blasted before the shooters fled on Monday night in a dark gray Nissan Altima, police said.

 

 

Arnold has his own fair share of trouble with the law, with a litany of lawsuits and corruption charges.

 

The Beyoncé-blaming sheriff is being investigated by the FBI and the Tennessee bureaus of investigation for corruption charges after it was revealed he sold e-cigarettes to jail inmates through “JailCigs,” a private company, owned by his own aunt and uncle, WKRN reported.

 

Arnold, along with the sheriff’s office, is also being sued for $20 million after an inmate was brutally beaten in his jail cell, despite the victim’s parent’s warnings. The sheriff is blamed for a “failure to adequately train and supervise his staff,” after the victim suffered a permanent brain injury and ending up “100 percent disabled,” the lawsuit stated, according to the Daily News Journal.

Adele Having A Little Fun With Fans

Just when you think that you can’t love songstress Adele any more, she grabs your heart with her humbled shenanigans. The singer surprised her fans last night by appearing in an upstairs window at her Pre-Grammy Intimate Concert. She shouted out the window being goofy by telling fans to keep it down outside as when they went into natural hysterical shock, then she laughed and started taking pictures back at them as they took pics of her!

We all love this women’s music as well as her down home spirit! Remember to catch her on Monday when she takes over the stage at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.

Celebrities Like Usher And Jermaine Dupri Take Their Millions To Black Owned Banks

img_20160211_211146.jpg

With so much racism and ungrateful behavior going on towards African Americans, it’s time we take a stand and unite as one.

Beyonce’s ‘Formation’ video seemed to have awakened many Negro people, that ignores or simply don’t care. However, certain powerful black people are getting into Formation by pulling their hard earned money out of big corporation banks and transferring it to black owned banks. This will definitely get their attention, if not anything else. Sometimes you have to show folks that you mean business, literally.
There are a total of 21 African American banks for us to choose from and make a difference.

img_20160211_211326.jpg

These 21 banks have total assets of approximately $4.7 billion dollars. This is a measly 0.43 percent of the $1.1 trillion dollars of annual spending power of the African American community. That’s right, we have over a trillion dollars in spending annually, but only keep $4.7 billion dollars of this in Black Owned Banks.

New Study Proves Marijuana Kills Cancer Cells

It’s funny that I had been hearing this story for so many years without ever thinking to do actual research, until now.

So I decided to find out what was going on for myself, instead of word-of-mouth. That is when I came across an interesting article. This article goes in full detail of just how much marijuana could save your life, which got me to thinking, why in the world isn’t everyone aware if it.

With millions of people dying from Cancer in the world, you would think, this herb would be legal on the entire planet, instead most would be arrested for this life saving plant. Go figure.

Check out this shocking scientific study below:

img_20160205_153746.jpg

National legalization of marijuana may be drawing a smidgeon closer. The National Cancer Institute (NCI), one of the federal government sponsored agencies, has just updated the FAQs on its website to include recent studies on marijuana showing that it can and has killed cancer cells.

Cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.

Cannabinoids may protect against inflammation of the colon and may have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer, and possibly in its treatment.

A laboratory study of delta -9-THC in hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) cells showed it damaged or killed the cancer cells. The same study of delta-9-THC in models of liver cancer showed that it had anti-tumor effects. Delta-9-THC has been shown to cause these effects by acting on molecules that may also be found in non-small cell lung cancer cells and breast cancer cells.

A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells. Studies of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.

A laboratory study of cannabidiol in human glioma cells showed that when given along with chemotherapy, CBD may make chemotherapy more effective and increase cancer cell death without harming normal cells. Studies showed that CBD together with delta-9-THC may make chemotherapy such as temozolomide more effective.
