Maleah Davis, the 4-year-old Houston girl who has been missing for 10 days, was reported missing by her caretaker. The caretaker gave a detailed account of what happened. But as the story unraveled, the caretaker becomes the suspect. The child has been missing since May 4th and hasn’t been found yet.
Her mother’s ex-fiancé was taking care of Maleah (pictured above), and said he and the girl were kidnapped by a trio of mysterious men near Houston, Texas. But police are finding more holes in the ex-fiancé’s story — as well as blood in his home and signs of decomposition in his car.
Tonight’s conversation is a call for single women to STOP leaving their defenseless minor children in the hands of boyfriends and/or other males who are not the child’s biological fathers.
Last week Facebook and Instagram banned, the honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan from its platform.
The controversial Nation of Islam minister, was among several conservative voices banned from the social media platforms for being “dangerous,” according to Facebook’s ruling.
While there are some extreme voices dominating the social media platform, the same can be said for the voices and images on television. But because the media controls the narrative, they control the platforms.
Minister Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam which is considered a hate group. The Southern Poverty Law Center cited Farrakhan as “deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT.” Farrakhan’s Facebook page was deleted and all of its content purged from the social media giant’s servers, along with the social media pages of his religious organization.
“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”
21 years ago James Byrd’s gruesome death shocked the nation and devastated his family. Byrd was viciously killed by John William King and two accomplices in Jasper, Texas in 1998., now tonight the ringleader in that murder to set to be executed.
Today Wednesday April 24, King, 44, is scheduled to be put to death by lethal injection in a Texas state prison.
King and his accomplices, Shawn Berry and Lawrence Brewer, encountered Byrd walking home after leaving a friend’s house in the early morning hours on June 7, 1998. Berry, who was driving, was familiar with Byrd from around town. He offered to drive Byrd home.
But instead of taking him home, the men took him to a secluded area on the outskirts of town. There they brutally beat him, and urinated and defecated on him before chaining him by the ankles to the back of their pickup truck.
They then dragged Byrd for nearly 3 miles along a paved road.
King and his accomplices are white. Byrd was Black. His death dominated the nation’s headlines for weeks and led to changes in the way local and federal governments prosecute hate crimes.
The details of Byrd’s murder are horrific and grueling but tonight we’re going to talk about it on “Conversations Of A Sistah“.
The #MeToo movement, with many local and international alternatives, is a movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault.
The movement spread virally in October 2017 as a hashtag used on social media in an attempt to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace. Unlike many kinds of social-media activism, it isn’t a call to action or the beginning of a campaign, culminating in a series of protests, speeches and events. The movement is about enough being enough and holding those individuals responsible for their indiscretions.
There are other forms of harassment than sexual, and we should not approve of any of them. But the focus on sexual harassment is dangerous, because the term is so broad and undefined. So far the #metoo movement has come down to anything that a woman says is indoctrinated to see it as she says without proof. This is a good way to destroy relations between the genders.
A sense of entitlement is when an individual perceive themselves as deserving of unearned privileges. These are the people who believe life owes them something; a reward, a measure of success, a particular standard of living.
And these a man who believes he’s God’s gift to women without the effort to meet expectations in the relationship. These men want you to conform to their ways without reciprocating the same.
Some men even believe or have the notion that, because they once spoiled the women they’ve dated in the past, they should take advantage of the woman who spoils them going forward. An attitude and belief to justify their selfish and/or narcissistic entitlement. Dwelling on “what was” or “how it use to be” instead of embracing new possibilities. Some men giving false desires of hope, having women believe they are the prize, so she must audition her part, when all he has do is walk right in and play the part…. Really?
“I have a topic suggestion: Why do some black men feel a sense of entitlement? Meaning they expect for black women to conform to their ways and hold them down but some wouldn’t do the same for us. They want us to audition for the wife part but they should automatically get the part. They expect for us to cook, clean and pay the bills but we are not supposed to have the same expectations from them”…..
