admin Feb 9 12 4 Comments

CNN analyst Roland Martin won’t be on the news channel, at least temporarily, due to a controversy over tweets he sent out during the Super Bowl.  In one tweet, he remarked that if a man is “hyped” about an underwear ad featuring soccer star David Beckham, quote, “smack the ish out of him!”  CNN said Martin’s statements were regrettable, offensive and inconsistent with the company’s culture.  The day after the Super Bowl, Martin said he regretted any offense his comments caused, and he did not seriously suggest striking anyone. You can check out statements from CNN and Martin below…

admin Jun 12 11 1 Comment

Recently there was a little debate via twitter with Roland Martin, Boris Kodjoe, and other twitter highly opinionated people. The subject of the matter involving the church being hypocritical, gays and human circumstances that are out of ones control. Check out what the debate that got many tweeters rowdy and involved in a rather heated conversation.

@rolandsmartin Ur right Ro. Still the real issue is the constant taboos and perpetuating secrets in the black community and church.

@rolandsmartin We need 2 change this antiquated belief and embrace everyone regardless of their sexual orientation! 2 me God loves everyone!

@rolandsmartin Only if we stop persecuting and judging, will people feel free and confident to embrace their true selves!! No more lies!

RT @GinaMontana_: @BorisKodjoe Agree with u. We need more open dialogue. It’s funny bc he was SO anti gay.

@rolandsmartin I was saying that the real issue is the perpetuating of lies and secrets in the blk community n church re sexual orientation

@rolandsmartin And that only if we stop persecuting and judging, will people feel free and confident to embrace their true selves!!

@rolandsmartin But they weren't. And this 'hidden gay' issue is a cancer that destroys blk families. All because people r scared to be free

@rolandsmartin Having kids is a choice. Out of wedlock or not. Being gay is NOT a choice. The whole choice of gay life style is a cop-out. (i dont know how many times that has to repeated for people to understand ) Read More »
