(St. Louis, MO) – What is this world coming to? It’s one thing to have to worry about sending your kids to High School…but Day care? Alarming video shows teachers flat-out running a fight club. And how ironic that The Adventure Learning Center where the fighting took place brands itself as a place where every child has the right to feel safe in a nurturing environment where they feel secure and comfortable…..Okay.
The Adventure Learning Center is anything but that and now Nicole Merseal is suing the school for $25k after her 4-year old was filmed by his 10 -year old brother beating up one of his classmates. The video is disturbing.
At one point, another little boy attempts to breakup the fight, but is told to get out of the way. As the kids ooh and ahh…the adults in the room seem to be the most enthusiastic about what is taking place. And even more disturbing a little girl in her cowboy boots sits just inches away from the violence.
The video is from 2016. The teachers were fired but the stated didn’t file any criminal charges. The only that was taken was an order to provide additional training and knowledge of age appropriate activities.
One of the teachers said they allowed the kids to fight as stress reliever after the heater broke.
Jesus take the wheel.
(AP) – Beyonce is taking on Toni Braxton for Halloween. Queen Bey shared a photo on social media of herself re-creating the R&B singer’s cover of her 1993 self-titled debut album. She called herself “Phoni Braxton,” and called the real Braxton a talented legend with God-given talent.
Toni Braxton said in response that Beyonce looks better on the album cover than she did, and called her a superstar.
(New York, NY) – Megyn Kelly is making headlines again and once again it’s not in a positive light. This time, the former ‘Megyn Kelly Today’ host reportedly is refusing to sign a non-disclosure agreement as she exits from NBC. This also comes after reports that the allegedly wants her full salary ($65 Million) plus an additional $10 million as part of her departure.
Whether or not it’s true that Megyn is also threatening to expose NBC executives for improper behavior is up for debate but one thing is for sure…none of it is helping her right now.
Megyn found herself in some pretty controversial moments where viewers didn’t take to kindly to her position on various topics including ‘blackface’, which turned out to be the final straw for NBC. It was Megyn who said she didn’t have a problem with people wearing ‘blackface’ for Halloween. It was also Megyn who made the choice to publicly claim that she wasn’t aware of the history that came along with ‘blackface’ and why it’s inappropriate and insensitive to people of color.
This is one of those situations where you apologize and just leave. There’s not really much she can say to defend her actions and ‘fighting’ tooth and nail to draw out her exit isn’t helping her image either. At the end of the day, her image was in her hands and she tarnished it with what some describe as racist behavior. NBC didn’t force Megyn to say anything about ‘blackface’ or to be more specific …that she found it to be acceptable. At this point, Megyn has burned bridges at both Fox and NBC…she just cool it before she kills her image all together leaving none of the remaining networks interested in working with her at all.
(Atlanta, GA) – It’s crunch time. As the campaign trail heads towards the final stretch, the big wigs are coming out to lend their support to Georgia Governor Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams.
If elected, Abrams would be the first black female governor is U.S. history. Media mogul Oprah Winfrey and former President Barack Obama want to make sure that happens. Oprah is expected to participate in two town hall meetings with Abrams in Atlanta, GA on November 1st, while Barack Obama will campaign for her in Atlanta on Friday.
The polls show Abrams with a slight lead over Secretary of State Brian Kemp who has come under heavy criticism lately with charges of voter suppression and corruption. Almost 60 thousand absentee votes have been rejected, 70 percent of which are from African Americans.
The official date for the midterm elections is Nov. 6th.
(New York City, NY) – The mystery of who two females found duct-tape tied together in the Hudson River is unfolding. Authorities say they two girls have been identified as Saudi Arabian sisters, one 16 and the other 22.
Even though authorities have identified the sisters as Tala and Rotana Farea, they still haven’t determined how they died. The girls’ mother reported had reported 16-year old Tala as missing but terminated the search after she found out the teen was living with her sister in Fairfax, Virginia. Both were asylum seekers and reportedly went missing often.
As police continue to look for clues of suicide or homicide, their mother says the day before they died she received a call from official at the Saudi Arabian Embassy, ordering the family to leave the U.S. because her daughters had applied for political asylum.
Saudi Arabia’s Consulate General in New York said in a statement that it had “appointed an attorney to follow the case closely.”
(Washington, DC) – Trying to rile up the opposition and stir up some emotion in his base, Donald Trump is once again threatening to take even more action to keep immigrants out of the U.S. and reaping the benefits of U.S. citizenship. He says it’s not fear mongering but at this point, the whole world is onto his game. It’s a cycle.
Trump is now saying he will attempt to sign an executive order to end birthright citizenship even though it’s against the constitution. But of course Trump says he doesn’t believe it is protected by the constitution. He also says Congress can do away with it through a bill.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
House Speaker Paul Ryan seems to agree with the constitution saying Trump cant’s wipe out the 14th amendment with an executive order. Naturally, Ryan’s comments were met with a displeased tweet from 45. Donald said that Ryan should concentrate on holding onto control of the House and that he doesn’t know
(AP) – Pharrell Williams is taking legal action against President Trump for using his hit song, Happy, at a political rally hours after the deadly mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
He sent a cease-and-desist letter to the commander-in-chief after he played the track at his rally in Indiana on Saturday night. Williams attorney said in a letter that “there was nothing happy about the tragedy inflicted upon our country,” and that Trump did not have permission to use it. Other singers like Steven Tyler, R.E.M. and Queen have also sent the president cease-and-desist letters over his use of their music.
(New York, NY) – Just go home and stay in the house for a bit. When trouble finds you wherever you go, sometimes that’s a hint that you need to sit down for a bit. Just as Rapper Tekashi69 tried to breath a sigh of relief after being sentenced to 4 years probation on a charge of using a 13-year old child in a sexual performance, the rapper might face a new charge or civil suit after a man was shot at his ‘jail-avoidance party’.Police say it happened after two men approached the rapper’s entourage and got into an altercation after being rejected entry. It was Friday at Philippe Chow’s restaurant in Manhattan. Authorities say after Zachary Bunce and Faheem Walter were turned away they came back and started a brawl. Chairs were thrown and one of Tekashi69’s security guards shot Faheem Walter in the abdomen. He is said to be in stable condition.
Bunce and Walter were arrested.
(Charlotte, NC) – Another racist video of a white woman harassing two black women has gone viral. This time the incident occurred in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Susan Westwood appeared to be drunk and belligerent when she approached two sisters who were waiting for Triple A to come and jump their car. In the video, Westwood is obviously drunk and aggressive, asking the women do they live there? How much do they pay for rent? How much money they make? etc…She goes on to say, “I’m white and I’m hot.” She also slurred her way through a salary announcement of her own, claiming she makes 125k a year. Well, not anymore. Westwood has been fired and will likely face some kind of harassment charge after the two sisters called 911 and reported her.
Westwood has been summonsed to appear in court. In another portion of the video it sounds like Westwood says that she has a gun that she can go get because she is licensed to carry.
In the rant, ‘South Park Susan’ as she has been dubbed repeatedly says, “Girl, Girl, I’m white. I’m white. I got ‘chu’. I’m white. She also questions the woman filming if she is here to see her man or her baby’s daddy after calling a series of B-words. She also said, that Monday morning should would still be making 125k a year. You sure, Susan?
Yet another disturbing display of racism.
(Atlanta, GA) – All eyes will be on the state of Georgia on November 6th as the heated race to the Governor’s seat will finally come to a head.
This election has been under heavy watch and scrutiny because for one Brian Kemp is still the Secretary of State which means he oversees the voting process. A call for straight up fraud has also been issued because more than 70 percent of 50 thousand black voter registrations have been held for failure of an exact match to driver licenses and social security numbers.
There have also been charges of voter suppression, the purging of voting roles and faulty machines. The race is neck and neck and Former President Jimmy Carter says it is a conflict of interest for Brian Kemp to oversee an election that his a candidate in. Reportedly, Carter sent him a letter earlier this month requesting that he step down.
The polls show them neck and neck in the race.
Stacey Abrams would be the first black and female Governor of Georgia if she wins.
