“Has Religion Brainwashed Black People into Forgiving?” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Black people didn’t know what to think after Botham Jean’s brother hugged the former Dallas cop who took his brother’s life in a deadly case of mistaken identity.

Last Tuesday a jury convicted Amber Guyger of murder in the fatal shooting of her upstairs neighbor. She claimed she mistook his apartment for her own after working a 13-hour shift on Sept. 6, 2018.

Prosecutors showed the jury racist text messages and racially offensive memes on Guyger’s social media accounts.

Guyger, 31, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

During his victim impact testimony, Jean’s brother, Brandt Jean told Guyger, who is white, that he forgives her and didn’t want her to go to prison. “I love you as a person, and I don’t wish anything bad on you,” Brandt said.

After his testimony, Brandt gave Guyger an emotional embrace that stunned social media.

There was more odd behavior in the courtroom. A Black bailiff was seen stroking and primping Guyger’s hair after her guilty verdict was announced.

The courtroom behavior angered many and confused others.

Ethics Complaint Filed Against Judge Who Hugged Amber Guyger and Gave Her Bible


An ethics complaint has been filed against a Dallas, Texas judge who hugged former cop Amber Guyger and gave her a Bible following her guilty verdict on Wednesday.

Guyger, who is white, was found guilty of murder and sentenced to 10 years in prison for fatally shooting 26-year-old accountant Botham Jean, an unarmed Black man who was relaxing in his own apartment when Guyger barged in.

Judge Tammy Kemp fueled outrage when she embraced Guyger in court and handed her a Bible after Guyger was sentenced on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

The judge’s actions prompted many to question why Black defendants aren’t treated the same way.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation filed an ethics complaint against the judge with the Texas State Commission on Judicial Conduct on Thursday.

The FFRF group said Kemp went too far by embracing the former cop in court and praying with her before Guyger was shipped off to prison.

The FFRF called Judge Kemp’s behavior inappropriate and unconstitutional.

After a victim impact statement by Jean’s brother, Brandt Jean, he told Guyger he loved her and embraced her.

Then Kemp embraced Guyger and spoke with her before leaving the courtroom and returning with her personal Bible.

She turned the pages to John 3:16 and told Guyger, “This is where you start.” She continued, saying, “He has a purpose for you,” referring to God.

In the complaint, the FFRF said Judge Kemp, “Handled a difficult trial with grace” but that she “signaled to everyone watching… that she is partial to Christian reform and Christian notions of forgiveness.”

Legal experts have noted that the hug and the Bible could cause a conflict if Guyger files an appeal, which her attorneys have stated she will.

Other legal experts weighed in, saying Kemp’s actions bordered on judicial misconduct.

“I did not see why the judge did what she did,” said C. Victor Lander, a former municipal judge who spent 27 years behind the bench.

“Once there’s an appearance that the judges are not impartial, we lose our entire criminal justice system,” Lander said.

Amber Guyger – Guilty or did she stand her ground? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Amber Guyger, 31 shot and killed Botham Jean in his apartment in September 2018. Guyger’s story is that she entered Jean’s apartment thinking it was hers, and believed she encountered a burglar who might kill her. Jean’s apartment was one floor above Guyger’s. Prosecutors argue that Guyger saw several numerous signs indicating she was on wrong floor and at the wrong apartment, including a skylight, a neighbor’s decorative planter, Jean’s red doormat and differences in the hallways.

Jurors, who began deliberating on Monday, were instructed to find whether Guyger is guilty of murder, manslaughter or neither. Prosecutors objected to applying the castle doctrine because Guyger was in Jean’s home — not the other way around. Although the judge allowed it and the defense leaned on it, it didn’t work and Guyger was found guilty of murder.

Join the Conversation with host Tracy L. Bell at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations of a Sistah” as we discuss the Amber Guyger case. Is she guilty or did she stand her ground?

Have Queens now become Kings? The Gender and role switch in today’s society….Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


We’re back for season ‘7’ of “Conversations Of A Sistah” on Blog Talk radio.

Tonight’s conversations comes after American Idol singer Fantasia Barrino explain “why some women can’t keep a man” after discussing gender roles  in an interview on the Breakfast Club, Monday September 16..

We need more men to stand up and lead the way,” she said. “Most women are trying to be the leader, that’s why you can’t find a man. You can’t be the king in the house. Fall back and be the queen and let your man lead the way.”

The mom-of-2, who is happily married to Kendall Taylor, continued:

“I feel like it’s a generational thing, and we can talk and we can go real deep on that, I don’t need to start that. But it’s a generational curse in how society has placed our men, and women have to stand up and be the mother and the father and the provider. So now, you’re so bad you can’t be told nothing that when the right man comes, you lose him because you’re trying to be the man.”

Join us in the studio at 6:30 p.m. for tonight’s conversationHave Queens now become Kings? The Gender and role switch in today’s society“. Our special guest, Dr. Marquita Johnson, relationship analyst and nationally certified relationship and dating counselor.
