Atlanta community leader and Baseball Swing Coach C.J. Stewart, who is co-founder of L.E.A.D (Launch, Expose, Advise, Direct) Inc. hosted their Annual Black History Month event at Regal Atlantic Station. This event featured a private screening of the critically acclaimed documentary-style Oscar nominated movie “I Am Not Your Negro” followed by a Q&A with L.E.A.D. Ambassadors from various high schools along with other community leaders as they discuss the current state of the Black Community and the contributions of Black Americans in the past and present day. Several students of Westminster gave their feedback and shared their thoughts on black vs white, how we can improve the community and more ! It’s great to see our youth step up and want to make a change for the better in our communities so that no one has to go through slavery and segregation and that we all can remain unified.

Was trying to wait for the dust to settle before weighing in on the election of Donald Trump as President of these United States… but it seems like that won’t be happening anytime soon. Everyday there’s something new on the news! Unfortunately, what has transpired is divisive and the “powers that be” have spewed deplorable rhetoric rooted in nothing but fear and hatred. With clashing philosophical viewpoints that can only be described as “EXTREMISM”…leaves some of us in this country feeling extremely anxious and uncertain about the future.

Amber Rose has a show and I believe that it is a comedy show? I’m not to sure but I do know that Amber as usual is catching s lot of heat from it. Well, you know that every time Amber Rose’s name is mentioned it usually always has something bad attached to it or negative and I think this show is her outlet to change that perspective.
Amber basically made comments on the fact that Duval said her show wasn’t funny and that she wouldn’t be anything in life foreal. She took that to heart of course because he judged her without even knowing her personally first off.
Secondly, she highlighted that these are the issues especially in the black community that need to be addressed because we are so quick to tear one another down. She spoke on the fact that this is why we need to lift each other up. Men should uplift their women especially black men and black women.
There is a big disconnect there and until that is fixed we all will be hurting. I more than agree with Amber Rose and I feel like especially when you have a platform of power speaking ignorance and negativity is the wrong way to go and you should get called out on it.
People are not their past, so let them live!

This is a sad, sad, sad case that I wish I could say had something to do with other than race but it honestly doesn’t. There is a boy by the name of Freddy Barley who rode 6 hours on his bike just to make it to college in time for move-in day. He got accepted into college but had no means of transportation nor housing when he got to school. He was sleeping in a tent outside of campus and everything, I mean he was really struggling!
So yes, if you were wondering this is a young African-American boy and this halt on his account I am convinced is all about racial profiling. This boy set up an account explaining his situation and he was gratefully able to raise a whopping $184,000 dollars!
Then one of the people in authority for the GoFundMe site put a halt on the money he raised because they apparently had “multiple questions” about his story and his actual situation.
I was heartbroken when I read it because I just feel that if it were any other race he wouldn’t be under investigation for telling the truth. Why are you so hesitant to give this young man this money? Because you already see his drive and determination to make the best of the opportunity given to him?
Why are you so intimidated? So bothered?

The word is out. Everyone knows. The Freddie Gray case outcome is out and all three of the officers in that case are not being held accountable for their actions that night. Freddie Gray was a case in the inner city of Baltimore. Here is where one of the biggest out roars happened.
I know that the Black Lives Matter community really came together well after this situation even happened but it was one of the major cases that sparked the movement. Freddie was beat up and killed while in custody of the police and of course the police have an “excuse” for why they had to use force.
There is no justifiable reason at all for killing an innocent man. These racist police officers do not care about black lives and that is why they get so trigger happy and so called scared when they get around the black man. It is an indescribable feeling that the entire black community and people in general encounter when one soldier falls.
The unlawful actions of the “justice system” will have to be endured sooner than later.
