The Rev. Al Sharpton Is Not Having a Good Week!


First Eric Gardner’s daughter Erica, went on camera exposing the founder of NAN (The National Action Network), as “Being all about the money“. Erica, whose father was the chokehold victim by Staten Island police, also complained that the Staten Island director of Sharpton’s National Action Network, Cynthia Davis, scolded her for handing out street fliers about her father’s case that did not include NAN’s logo.

Now in another bombshell revelation about the good right Rev. Al Sharpton, The National Association of African-American Owned Media claims, Comcast paid Sharpton and his National Action Network a cool $3.8 million dollars — so that he wouldn’t complain about the lack of black cable TV programming.

The Cable giant is suing Sharpton siting, that the activist would keep his $750,000-a-year gig as host on MSNBC which it co-owns even as his ratings slump and his ratings are slumping. However Sharpton was paid cash donations in exchange for not screaming about Comcast lack of solely black-owned channels.

The lawsuit — decrying the proposed merger between Comcast and Time Warner — said that Comcast carries just one completely black-owned channel, The Africa Channel, and that Time Warner is no better.

The group’s allegations of payouts also factor in Sharpton’s TV salary, which he has been receiving since starting to host MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” in 2011, the suit says.

Sharpton says, “the lawsuit is frivolous at best” but it seems he’s made a lot of enemies on his ride to easy street.

Comedian, Law and order, Lawsuits, Rape

Comedian Bill Cosby…is really a rapist?

Bill a rapist
Bill Cosby…is a rapist

Bill Cosby is best remembered for The Cosby Show, Fat Albert and those Jell-O pudding pop commercials but lately, the comedian who has that ‘father figure’ image is being accused of sexual assault. An image that is contradictory to this voice and message he sends to the black community.

Comedian Hannibal Buress jogged our memory in a stand up routine he did last weekend and reminded us all that Bill Cosby is an accused rapist. Buress homed in during his set Thursday at the Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia (Cosby’s home town).

“And it’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the fucking smuggest old black man public persona that I hate,” Buress said.  “Pull your pants up, black people. I was on TV in the ’80s. I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom. Yeah, but you raped women, Bill Cosby. So, brings you down a couple of notches. … I’ve done this bit onstage, and people don’t believe. People think I’m making it up. …That shit is upsetting. If you didn’t know about it, trust me. You leave here and google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’ It’s not funny. That shit has more results than Hannibal Buress.” 

Burress is correct!

The myriad allegations leveled against Bill Cosby over the years are no joke. In 2004, Andrea Constand brought a civil lawsuit against Cosby that grew to include 13 other women, all of whom reported being drugged and raped by one of America’s most beloved entertainers. Cosby settled with her under undisclosed terms in 2006. 

Notably, two other women — who presumably had nothing to gain financially, as the statute of limitations had run out on their cases — also shared their stories with major media outlets. Their accounts included  similar details: Cosby took them under his wing and, on multiple occasions, fed them alcohol laced with drugs and assaulted them.

And yet, despite the multiple victims and reports of a decades-long streak of rape, America seems to have chosen to forgive and forget. Completing the circle of denial, Cosby’s new biography conspicuously omits his sexual assault allegations, as if they never happened. Cosby and his lawyers are slick, they prove that with money and power, incidents like this can be swept and kept under a rug.

So there it is people, Dr. Huxtable — America’s dad — isn’t that lovable television character “in real life” who visited your living rooms week after week. The man is a slick accused rapist. His time is up though and I believe his season of exposure has come. Why? Because in time, God reveals all things.

Matthew Knowles Fathered a 2nd child!

A second woman has come forward and claimed Mathew Knowles, 63, fathered her child.

A new report claims that former model TaQoya Branscomb, 30, has a child that DNA tests showed is a 99.9% fathered by Matthew’s Knowles, which means Beyonce, 33, and Solange Knowles, 28, have a second sibling that they knew nothing about. This new information brings Matthew’s total love children to a count of TWO.

How embarrassing! 

Matthew was forced to claim a son, Nixon, who was conceived while he was still married to Beyonce and Solange’s mom, Tina Knowles. Tina then filed for divorce after 31 years of marriage.

TaQoya’s child belongs to Matthew Knowles, therefore she will be seeking child support from Beyonce’s former manager but likely will not receive the same amount due to the fact he is no longer making big bucks on behalf of Beyonce.

Beyonce was forthright in cutting managerial ties with her father, this way she is not doling out cash in support of her father’s whorish and philandering ways.

Barney’s agrees to pay $525K for profiling black customers


Barney’s New York has agreed to pay $525,000 in fees and penalties for racially profiling two Barney’s customers.

The settlement was reached after a nine-month investigation by the New York state attorney general’s office.

The investigation was launched after college student Trayon Christian and nursing student Kayla Phillips were stopped by Barney’s employees in separate incidents after the students purchased expensive items from the New York flagship store.

Trayon said he was accused of theft by a N.Y.P.D. cop after he purchased a $359 Ferragamo belt with a debit card. And Kayla said she was harassed when she bought a $2,500 Céline bag from the same store.

Both have filed lawsuits against the store and the N.Y.P.D. for violating their civil rights.

From Huffington Post:

Investigators reviewed a series of complaints from Barneys customers and former employees, who claimed that door guards would exclusively single out minority customers and that in-store detectives would follow these customers as they walked around. Some salespeople tried not to work with minority shoppers to avoid the hassle of being roped into investigations about them, the complaints alleged.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office found that a “disproportionate number” of black and Latino customers had been detained at Barneys on suspicion of shoplifting or credit card fraud. It concluded that Barneys lacked the proper “comprehensive written policies” to curb racial profiling.

“Profiling and racial discrimination remain a problem in our state, but not one we are willing to accept,” Schneiderman said in a statement. “This agreement will correct a number of wrongs, both by fixing past policies and monitoring the actions of Barneys and its employee to make sure that past mistakes are not repeated.”

White House expects Speaker Boehner to file for IMPEACHMENT



U.S. Representative John Bohner is expected to try and impeach President Barack Obama for abuse of power and criminal acts against the Constitution of the United States.

Dan Pfeiffer, a senior aide to Obama, told reporters that he expects a lawsuit to be filed by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

Pfeiffer said that “coming executive actions surrounding immigration reform” would only stoke the fires of impeachment.

Pfeiffer got the jump on Boehner by informing the media of Boehner’s intentions.

“I think that Speaker Boehner, by going down this path of this lawsuit, has opened the door to Republicans possibly considering impeachment at some point in the future.”

In a statement to the Huffington Post today, Boehner’s office reacted with acrimony to Pfeiffer’s “political games”:

We have a humanitarian crisis at our border, and the White House is making matters worse with inattention and mixed signals. It is telling, and sad, that a senior White House official is focused on political games, rather than helping these kids and securing the border.

Impeachment is a 2 stage process. The first step involves a hearing to rule on the criminal charges. The 2nd step involves removal from office which requires a majority vote. The last president to be impeached was Bill Clinton in 1998. But the Senate did not have enough votes to remove Clinton from office.

If Obama’s Impeachment is successful, he would be the first biracial/mixed president to be impeached in presidential history.
