Say His Name…

unnamed (23)

Dayshen McKenzie, another young African-American boy dead because of the hatred in this world. This young boy was running for his life from a racist mob of predominantly white males, with one hispanic who threatened him with a gun. His cause of death was an asthma attack which occurred while he was running for his life. He was attacked with racial slurs as well and apparently this was all over a fall out with some, girl?

The car that was driven had Pennsylvania tags and all these boys are in their teens. I am honestly speechless. There is just one story after the next about African-Americans dying and racism continuing to be demonstrated.

I can only imagine what the mother of this young boy is going through. The fact that I’m not even surprised that things like this are still occurring is sad. I shouldn’t be afraid to go on a road trip anywhere in this world because I’m afraid of being racially profiled or caught by rednecks, hill billy’s, or members of the KKK.

 

ALL OF THIS HATE IS JUST TOO MUCH!

I don’t see what joy is brought out of hating so much and for no reason at that.

It’s crazy and at the end of the day, if we are willing killing one race of people we are in turn killing the entire human race. It is just that simple.

When will that sink in?

 

I AM The Greatest.

It breaks my heart to report, that after the legend Muhammad Ali was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support that he has left this earth on today. Muhammad Ali, again another legend, was sick and knew that his time was near just recently. People all over the world who have continuously been inspired by him have paid their respects, including our incredible president, Barack Obama.

It is honestly people like Muhammad Ali who have paved the way for so many great artist in the world. I personally do not like boxing but I don’t and didn’t have to like his craft in order to be inspired by the way he went after it. The art of perfecting your craft is a real and necessary thing and only those with the discipline and willpower to make a difference in this world will be considered the Greatest. Of. All. Time.

Even though Ali has left this earth as many other great legends have, this doesn’t mean that any of the love, encouragement, or art that he put in the world has to go in vain. This is why legends are on this earth for a specific amount of time in the first place. Not so that we may live forever but so that we create or are involved with something that does!

Thank you Muhammad Ali for everything and you can rest assured knowing that I myself and any other artist striving to be the one of the greatest will not let your legacy go in vain!

#RestInParadiseMuhammadAli

Today in Cincinnati a very unfortunate event occurred which showed the stupidity of humans and the privilege that we think we have as humans. Today at the Cincinnati Zoo a 4-year old boy, who was not attended by his mother, fell into the gorilla’s enclosure. The staff apparently was “forced” to shoot the animal because of the close proximity of the animal and the child, I suppose? I’m not sure but this was heart breaking.

It’s about that time to start making your election sure.

This gracious act is one of the numerous things that shows why this strong man needs to be in the office for a THIRD term. Don’t you agree? Who wouldn’t be grateful for a second chance in life, no matter what you did, second chances can make all the difference. Having a president who sees people as people and struggles as struggles with no prejudice is so comforting. I know you think of yourself more than a number, right? These 58 men and women were nonviolent drug offenders and have done the necessary tasks in order to receive a clean slate.

It is no surprise to anyone that the majority of the people in jail are behind bars for minor things and are also minorities. This president never ceases to amaze the world with the little hints of genuine concern for the people of this nation. Whether you agree with him or not, he is persevering. Barack Obama is the only president in history who lives up to the slogan of America “In God we trust”, while many others have used it in vain. Barack Obama has come, he has seen, he has loved, and he has conquered!

 

Despite what you choose to see or believe that fats remain the same. Thank you Obama from the bottom of my heart from everything you have done for us! Hate him or love him you are all still watching him!

18 year-old Christal McGee likes to Snapchat

18 year-old Christal McGee had a “Brilliant” idea to snap and drive testing Snapchat’s speed filter so that she could get a trophy for her “accomplishment. She crashed and injured two civilians injuring herself as well in the process. Don’t be like 18 year-old Christal McGee.

Earlier this week McGee was behind the wheel of her father’s C230 Mercedes Benz drving at 107mp before crashing into the gray Mitsubishi being driven by Uber driver Maynard Wentworth. The lawsuit alleges that McGee was too distracted by her to notice  Wentworth’s appearance. Mr. Wentworth’s lawyers have stated that their client had suffered serious brain damage, that he requires assistance to walk resulting in him having to spend five weeks in intensive care and that he is unable to work.

Snapchat is not specifically commented directly regarding this specific case but did release this statement, “No Snap is more important than someone’s safety. We actively discourage our community from using the speed filter while driving, including by displaying a ‘Do NOT Snap and Drive’ warning message in the app itself.”

The company’s terms of service that can be found on their website clearly states, “Do not use our Services in a way that would distract you from obeying traffic or safety laws and never put yourself or others in harm’s way just to capture a Snap.”

Shortly after the accident McGee posted this picture to her Snapchat
