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

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.

Intelligent Group Of Kids Respond To Stacey Dash On Her Statement About Black History (Video)

Stacey Dash’s Solution To Oscars Controversy: “Cancel BET And Black History Month”

A few of the precocious children asked if Dash’s wish was even legal and inquired on whether or not Kanye West is aware of his former “All Falls Down” video co-star’s statement. Throughout the 60-second visual, the kids also exclaim their excitement to celebrate their rich culture.

“It forces us to talk about our amazing history and it didn’t begin with slavery, no negativity, no stereotypes, all excellence because that’s who and what we are,” they said.

Amina Buddafly And Tara Wallace Are Pregnant By Peter Gunz At The Same Time

img_20160128_225058.jpg

It just keeps getting worse for the threesome of Peter Gunz, Tara Wallace and Amina Buddafly.

img_20160128_231045.jpg

The sisterwives of love And Hip Hop New York has been sharing one man for years. Yes you read that right. Peter had been in a 13 Year relationship with Tara and they share two sons together. Peter cheated on Tara and within a year, married Amina behind Tara’s back.

The drama was entirely too much to handle and honestly we felt very bad for Tara because she wasted over a decade and never received a ring.

Fast forward to today, Tara is eight months pregnant with her and Peter’s third child and Amina was pregnant too, until she had an abortion.

Well the craziness doesn’t stop there. Amina is three months pregnant again allegedly and it appears to be a baby bump in a photo captured of her. This is all too confusing to keep up with but we’ll try.

Jay Z Facing Lawsuit From Perfume Company

img_20160126_154349.jpg

Parlux Fragrances is responsible for the licensing, designing and marketing of celebrity fragrances including the “Jay Z Gold”.

Jay Z Gold, the signature fragrance line of New York Hip Hop rapper and mogul Jay Z is one of those fragrances that never got the exposure that was agreed upon.

 Parlux Fragrances is suing Jay for $20mil! In order to boost sales, Jay was supposed to continuously promote the fragrance on social media and make several appearances, in which he allegedly did not do. Apparently there was an issue with him upholding his portion of the agreement, which has led to a huge misunderstanding and lawsuit.

Parlux Fragrances said that some of those appearances included an interview on Good Morning America and an exclusive interview with Women’s Wear Daily.

The businessman is already facing legs action from singer, Rita Ora, whom is attempting to get released from her contract under his label.

Jay Z barely promoted Roca Wear which lead to the brands non-existence.
