The world seems to becoming crazier by the day! An Ohio man, is now facing charges for taking a picture of him kneeling on an infant's neck!

The caption on the photo read “BLM now mf.”

Soon after receiving the photo on Tuesday, local police quickly figured out the child’s location and arrested Isaiah, who coincidentally was immediately arrested on an outstanding parole violation.

The child was taken to the local hospital for examination, where he was found to have no injuries related to the incident. The child’s mother stated she had no idea about had transpired.

We are glad this baby will be okay, and are hoping the photographer and the person who held the child’s arms back will be arrested as well. There is nothing funny about this picture–from the act to the caption. George Floyd’s death was tragic and world altering, but had nothing to do with this infant.

This is yet another example of why parents should be very careful of who they allow to watch and spend time around their children, especially infants.

A district spokeswoman stated on Wednesday that Brian is still an employee of the Dekalb County school district. “Administrators were made aware of the disturbing social media posts. The district is currently investigating the allegation.”

Cedar Grove High School’s staff and students are predominantly African-American. The parents and family members of the students there are calling for his termination. “There’s too much going on in the world and our children should not be educated by someone who would speak so cruelly and recklessly. Mr. Papin needs to go” Arlene Jones, mother of a sophomore student at Cedar Grove, stated. “Someone needs to start a petition immediately to get him out of here. I don’t want him teaching any child–let alone Black children–anything if he feels this way. Nothing about those comments is funny. A man died and that child could have been killed or seriously injured. Is nothing sacred anymore? Do we just do anything for Instagram?” Marcus Smith, uncle of a senior at Cedar Grove stated passionately.

The man shown in the controversial picture has since been arrested by Clarke County police in Ohio. The infant, thankfully, was assessed at a local hospital and found to be not injured.

We will keep you posted as this story continues to unfold. In the meanwhile if you would like to voice your concerns with the Dekalb County Board of Education concerning Brian Papin you can reach them here, https://www.dekalbschoolsga.org/.

Mary Kay Letorneau, a former teacher, known for sexually abusing her student, Vili Fualaau, and later marrying him has now passed at the age of 58.

Mary Kay, who raped then twelve year old Vili, has died from Stage 4 colon cancer. Her now estranged husband, Vili, revealed she had been quietly battling the disease for months, losing weight, and weakening. She finally succumbed Monday.

Her family released and official statement Tuesday night, “Mary fought tirelessly against this terrible disease,” the Letourneau and Fualaau families said in a statement provided to writer Danielle Bacher. “Mary, and all of us, found great strength in having our immediate and extended family members together to join her in this arduous struggle. We did our very best to care for Mary and one another as we kept her close and stayed close together,” the statement continued.

As aforementioned Mary began her affair with Vili when he was just twelve years old and was sentenced to serve seven years for child rape before becoming pregnant by him twice before he was fifteen, despite efforts to keep them apart. By the time Vili became an adult he petitioned the court to allow them to see each other. A restraining order against Mary was later dropped, but she remained a registered sex offender in Washington state.

Vili and Mary married in 2005, but separated in 2017, still living together and raising their daughters, Georgia and Audrey. Late last year they finally began living separately.

What Mary did was terrible, but we will be praying for her family and all of her children. Her story and legacy still serve as reminder that women too can be sexual predators.

clark atlanta university and morehouse college reopening fall 2020 coronavirus precautions

The Atlanta University Center is preparing–at least partially–to reopen this fall when it comes to HBCUs, Morehouse College, Spelman College, and Clark Atlanta University. The three institutions revealed their plans to reopen this Fall with a few accommodations and practices in place to ward off the spread of COVID-19 on their campuses.

Clark Atlanta University (CAU), Spelman College, and Morehouse College revealed their respective upcoming semesters have been largely changed and adapted to ensure new and returning students, staff and the surrounding neighborhoods and communities are safe during the ongoing pandemic. In addition, these changes will included mandatory COVID-19 tests, temperature tracking and wearing masks.

Clark Atlanta University

Below are the plans for the schools:

Clark Atlanta University:

  • Students and staff will have to be tested for COVID-19 prior to returning to campus
  • Face coverings will be mandatory while on campus
  • Daily temperature checks upon arrival to campus for all administrators, faculty and staff
  • Freshmen and sophomores will attend classes on campus in classrooms that have been reconfigured based on recommended guidelines by the CDC.
  • Juniors, seniors, and graduate students will remain home and take all of their courses online. Juniors and seniors who will live in residential halls as ambassadors/mentors will also take their courses online
  • Classes will occur on a Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday schedule. No classes will be held on Wednesdays to allow for the sanitizing and deep cleaning of offices, classrooms, residential halls, dining facilities, and labs
  • There will be an abbreviated academic calendar that will shorten the fall and spring semesters to ensure that students can travel home to spend time with their families and avoid having to return to school after Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks
  • All classrooms and residential halls have been sanitized, and the university has increased the cleaning staff to ensure that classrooms and residential buildings are regularly cleaned.

Morehouse College

  • Classes will be held in a hybrid setting, with some classes gathering for in-person instruction and virtual teaching and learning, and others meeting online only
  • The academic calendar has been modified to help make sure that students will return home before winter flu season. The Fall 2020 Semester will end before Thanksgiving. There will be no fall break. Final exams will be held between Nov. 16-20
  • Move-in for freshman and transfer students will be held from Aug. 16-17. Move-in for upperclassmen will be held on Aug. 18
  • Each student in a traditional residential house and Otis Moss Suites East will have their own room
  • Additional hand-sanitizing stations have been added in high traffic areas

Dr. David A. Thomas, president of Morehouse College, also released a letter reiterating the aforementioned guidelines and adaptions for the upcoming school year, and reassuring returning students, new students, faculty, and staff of the insitutions commitment to safety. “Morehouse is known for its strength as a community. Since 1867, we have been educating men who are dedicated to academic excellence, leadership, and service. That historic legacy will not be disrupted now. We are committed to maintaining the quality and continuity of our academic program regardless of whether our students are on campus or learning remotely. We will continue to monitor the very fluid path of the COVID-19 pandemic and make adjustments to our safety and academic plans as needed. It is imperative that every member of the Morehouse Community adhere to the guidelines that we have established. With your collaboration and pride in the community, the 2020-21 academic year will be a success for our new and returning students.”

Spelman College

At Spelman a low-density hybrid model, including both in-person and online instruction will be adopted for how classes will be conducted for the foreseeable future. The college will also be reopening in four phases, each taking place during various times of the academic year.

Phase 1

  • onboarding COVID-19 awareness and precaution training modules
  • increasing cleaning and sanitizing regimen
  • ordering personal protection equipment (PPE)
  • setting up COVID-19 testing, contact tracing and symptom monitoring
  • creating signage about face covering, physical distancing and hand washing
  • determining measures for isolation, quarantine and resurgence; size limitations of on-campus classes and meetings; and guest visitation protocol.

Phase 2

The second phase of the reopening will begin on August 1, 2020, prior to the start the fall semester on Aug. 19, 2020. During this phase, Spelman’s on-campus presence will include first-year students, who make up between 25-30 percent of the student body. ROTC students will also be given on-campus housing preference due to the requirement that they engage in early daily military practices in Atlanta.

Spelman’s aforementioned low-density hybrid model allows students and staff to have ongoing access to online course materials, while allowing some students, and faculty and staff members to return to campus in the fall.

Phases 3 and 4

Phase three is set to begin on February 1, 2021. Here, students living on campus will include freshmen students and graduating seniors.

The College plans to begin its final phase of reopening during Fall 2021. However, getting to this final part will  depend on COVID-19 being contained or a vaccine readily available, according to Sharon Davies, the vice president for academic affairs, “Last spring taught us that no matter how well we plan, the realities of this pandemic may require us act swiftly to change course,” she said. “This means that any plan to reopen must be able to flex and pivot as evolving conditions demand. We will watch these health conditions carefully and respond accordingly.”

We are glad to see these colleges are taking this seriously. It really shows just how committed they are to the safety of everyone on campus and the surrounding areas. For more information on the AUC’s reopenings check out their respective websites.
