Straight From The Bush! Jeb Bush (@JebBush) Boldly States Confederate Flag is Racist!

The debate over The Confederate Flag is heating up! Just this past weekend an African-American woman, Bree Newsome was arrested for climbing the flagpole in at the South Carolina state capitol and removing it. Many are praising her actions, feeling she comes from a long line of civil disobedience in the likes of Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Surprisingly, those against the flag just acquired a powerful ally in Jeb Bush!

As you know, Jeb is the youngest son of former President George Bush and the younger brother of former President George W. Bush. Just yesterday, during a visit to South Carolina, he discussed his actions as the governor of Florida concerning the flag.

The symbols were racist…I decided to do something politically incorrect…

America may offer freedom of speech, but it can prove to be costly. Especially when that speech is so hate filled and derogatory! Enter the scenario where NBC cuts ties with business mogul, Donald Trump for his recent comments on Mexican immigrants. NBC released the following statement.

At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values.

As you recall, he accused the group of adding drugs and crime to the United States as he announced he is seeking the Republican presidential candidate.

They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some I assume are good people, but I speak to border guards, and they tell us what we are getting…

Drew-Sidora-272x300

For the last couple of months there have been several rumors making their rounds on the blogosphere about popular reality show “The Real Housewives of Atlanta“. Everybody wants to know which ‘housewife’ (I use the term loosely because they do too *side eye and shade*) is getting the boot, who’s possibly getting an upgrade (or a new boo) or which new peach is going to try and enter their world. Probably the biggest question being asked around town was “did Nene Leakes really get Claudia Jordan” fired and if so, who’s going to fill her seat on the cast.

What About Your Friends? – 5 Toxic Friends To Spot & LET GO!

Toxic-292x300

TLC couldn’t have asked a better question on their debut album. “What about your friends – will they stand their ground? Will they let you down again? What about your friends – are they gonna be low down? Will they ever be around or will they turn their backs on you?”  As you get older you will see your “Day 1″ friends get more and more distant and you’ll wonder why. You’ll notice he or she always has something negative to say about one of your other friends, about something you consider to be an achievement or she or he may just be running off 100% haterade. And the saddest part about your friend’s “new behavior” is its really not new at all. It’s just that you’ve been so accepting of it up until now and the reason why you’re getting fed up is because you’re older now, you’ve taken the rose colored glasses off and now you can truly see them for the negative person they’ve always been.

Jussie Smollett (@jussiesmollett) Talks OUTloud at The 2015 BET Awards!

jussie-02

Empire is one helluva a television show. The success of the series has given a few of its main characters, Jussie Smollett, Yazz the Greatest (Bryshere Gray), and Serayah McNeil their own music careers as well. Last night, at the 2015 BET Awards, fans of the show (which is the everyone on the planet at this point) were treated to a performance by Yazz, Jussie, and Serayah. Yazz led the pack with a remix of “No Apologies” featuring Juicy J. Then, Serayah, sexy as ever, joined the fray as the two performed “Drip Drop.” Needless to say they killed it! Jussie closed out their set with a controversial rendition of “You’re So Beautiful.” In the middle of his performance he paused to give this speech:

We live in a nation where freedom is what we represent, yet we are still fighting every day for the basic freedoms of all of our people,” he said. “Let the Supreme Court ruling be proof of how far we have come. Let the deaths of sisters and brothers be proof of how far we have to go. No one is free until we are all free.” He ended the performance with three simple words: “Stand for love.

Jussie then continued to perform the song, but with the gay remake of it when he states, “…this is type of song that makes a man love a man..” Needless to say it was one of the shocking highlights of the night. However, it seems to be a sign of the times as even the legendary Patti LaBelle spoke in favor of the Supreme Court’s gay marriage following her performance with Tamar Braxton and K. Michelle! You can check out a clip from the performance and Jussie’s speech in the video below!
