I was one of the sponsors for a dope back to school drive powered by the good people over at Zaxby’s Midtown for their new initiative “The Young Moguls Project.

The ATL  city were invited to enjoy an afternoon of good food, enjoy fun sounds, and donate to a worthwhile cause. R&B singers Meelah and Apollo along side Little Zach (the brand’s official mascot) were on hand to help distribute school supplies and smiles. While Sterling Coleman the organizer and owner of Zaxbys powered a dope charitable experience.

The King of the South T.I. hosted a fun back to school supply giveaway in Atlanta today for deserving kids headed back to school. T.I. loves connecting with the community, mentoring kids, and giving a little bit back to the community. T.I. teamed up with non-profit “Saving Our Daughters” to hand out over 1,000 book bags. The rainy weather did not deter students nor their parents from getting blessed with the essentials needed for a successful academic year.

GoFundMe Account Frozen!

freddy

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?

Michael Jordan is the latest celebrity of many to finally speak up and use their platform to address the issues that are currently plaguing our society: the unjustified shootings of African Americans and the killings of police officers.

In a new interview, he told USA TODAY that he will donate his entire 2016 NFL salary if he is drafted by a team.

The news went viral after it was evident that they were channeling in their inner Michael Jackson, because you know everyone has one, right? They were dancing and singing on stage and they just look so happy and in love, must be nice, huh?

They performed the song “The Way You Make Me Feel” by Michael and allegedly they nailed it? I haven’t seen the video so I am in no position to give my personal opinion but what do you all think?

I can’t wait for the wedding of these two. It seems they do almost everything together and it must be a great feeling to give to the less fortunate together because that is what makes both of their hearts smile!

 

That kind of love does exist, thank you for being a perfect example of that fact!
