What Happened To The 64,000 Missing Women?

64,000 Missing Women in America All Have One Important Thing in Common
More than 64,000 black women remain missing across the United States as of today.
Feb. 09,2016
Dr. Aggrey said, “If you educate a woman, you educate a nation but if you educate a man, you educate an individual.” This outlines the vital role women play in nation building. There are several women disappearing in the air every day in all the provinces of America, of which we do not hear their whereabouts.

Report says, in 2012 the total number of black women who disappeared in America totaled to 12.85% out of 34% of all missing persons. According to the Black And Missing Foundation, most women disappear in the states of New York, Georgia, North Carolina, Maryland and Florida.

This is heartbreaking and uncomfortable situation and due to this, the foundation has teamed up with a TV network to make a series, Find Our Missing, telling the stories behind the women’s disappearances.

Behind the hundreds of cases are painful details sketched out by families, left wondering what has become of their loved ones. Many women have been missing for decades.

This has posed great fear and threat, hence making life unbearable and unhealthy for them in America.

Among the missing is Phoenix Coldon, 23, of St Louis, Missouri, on December 18 while Stacey English, 36, vanished in Atlanta, Georgia on Christmas Day

Adele Having A Little Fun With Fans

img_20160213_204604.jpg

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.

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.

Come Again? Julie Delpy: “I Sometimes Wish I Were African American…”

It looks as if frustration over Hollywood’s diversity debate erupted over at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, as actress/writer, Julie Delpy expressed that she felt muzzled by the industry and added that there’s “nothing worse than being a woman in this business.”

Delpy, who was Oscar-nominated as a writer both for “Before Midnight” and “Before Sunset,” said that she said she has raised awareness over the issue of how few women were members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and was shut down.

“Two years ago, I said something about the Academy being very white male, which is the reality, and I was slashed to pieces by the media,” she told TheWrap’s Jeff Sneider. ”

It’s funny — women can’t talk. I sometimes wish I were African American because people don’t bash them afterward.”
I’m just lost all the way around with this statement. How does her dilemma compare to the mistreatment of African Americans? People these days just seem to have no filter. The racial hatred, slavery and unjustified killings of black people is not to be taken lightly or compared with such foolishness. No ma’am Ms. Delpy, you can’t possibly wish such suffering. This idiotic quote may be a publicity stunt in order to bring more awareness to your beliefs but we are not pawns in your chest game and you should tread light from now on. This sort of silly behavior is one of the many reasons why this nation has and is so divided. No values or respect for other cultures!
For that unacceptable stunt, Julie, you are no doubt, the weakest link!!!
