Kwame Kilpatrick, President's Pardon

Incarcerated Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick Begs Trump to Commute His Sentence


Former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who is serving 28 years in prison, is pleading with President Donald Trump to commute his sentence to time served.

Kilpatrick is motivated since President Trump pardoned filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza (who was thrown into prison by the Justice Department under the Obama administration) and a 63-year-old grandmother who was sentenced to life in prison on drug charges as a first offender.

Kilpatrick, 47, was sentenced in 2013 to serve 28 years in prison on multiple counts of extortion, bribery, conspiracy and racketeering.

The former mayor was accused of funneling cash bribes into secret bank accounts and diverting city funds into his own pockets.

Kilpatrick, who served as Detroit mayor from 2001 to 2008, also placed his father and other family members on the city’s payroll, as well as enriched his friends who helped him get elected.

If Trump ignores his request, Kilpatrick will languish behind bars until 2037.

Failed Relationships, Infedelity

A Husband’s Infidelity & A Wife’s Insecurities, Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


When a couple remain married after an affair, the victim’s self-confidence is gone.  After all, how can the one who’s been betrayed give their cheating spouse everything that the affair partner could – the excitement, the fresh conversation, the sex, the attention, etc.? After-all, self-esteem, self-concept and self-confidence are all very similar and somewhat related.

When a woman has been betrayed by her husband’s infidelity, no amount of words or healing can compete with the inner most thoughts in her mind. That woman is constantly trying to convince friends, family and the world that there’s happiness and tranquility in the midst of her forgiveness. This seems to be the case with Beyonce and jay Z of late, with nude pics surfacing online and throughout social media, attempting to share with the world how solid their love is.

This is a bit much but what’s the real issue here?

Join us at 6:30 p.m. EST with host Tracy L. Bell via Blog Talk Radio on “Conversations Of A Sistah” for Ms. Bell’s commentary “A Husband’s Infidelity and a Wife’s Self Esteem

Beyonce, Jay Z

They went from “We keep our private life private” to this…


The infamous couple known as Beyonce and rap artist Jay-Z, leaked partially nude photos online — further tarnishing Beyonce’s carefully cultivated public image.

Word on the street is that, ticket sales to their ‘On The Run 2’ world tour are at an all time low. So Beyonce is forced to stage stunts to fill more stadium seats.

I guess desperate times really call for desperate measures. Hell, I’m even shocked that they’ve stooped to this all-time low.

New NFL Policy, P. Diddy aka Sean Combs and the NFL Policy

Diddy says he doesn’t want to buy an NFL team anymore — ‘I don’t want to be associated with oppressing black men’


“I don’t want to be associated with oppressing black men. I don’t want to be associated with telling grown ass men what they can do and cannot do.”

Diddy has quit the NFL.

The 48-year-old rapper has frequently spoken out about his dream of owning a football team — and even put in a bid to buy the Carolina Panthers before eventually dropping out — but he’s lost all interest now that players are required to stand for the national anthem while on the sidelines.

The NFL’s new policy, announced last month, required players to either stand for the “Star Spangled Banner” or stay in the locker room. Anyone who kneels will face a fine.

The rule comes amid a protest against police brutality started by Colin Kaepernick that has since spread league-wide. The 30-year-old quarterback, who hasn’t played since the end of the 2016 season, is currently suing the NFL for collusion.

President Trump has also been vocal about the players who have kneeled, encouraging owners dealing with a protester to “get that son of a bitch off the field.”

The NFL Players Association, as well as several current players, reacted negatively to the new rule, a move that Diddy defended.

“Y’all in a messed-up position, but this is a defining time and if Ali and all them was able to do it, if Jim Brown was able to do it, if y’all stick together, they can’t break you,” he said.

Even though Diddy’s dream may be dead, he still knows how he would have dealt with this situation: “My players could have done whatever they want.”

Conversations Of A Sistah, Discrimination, Tracy L. Bell - Blog Talk Radio, Tracy L. Bell Host Conversations Of A Sistah

Religious Belief or Discrimination? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple on the basis of his religious beliefs.

Critics argue the baker’s decision to deny service based on a couple’s sexual orientation is discriminatory, and therefore illegal. But religious freedom advocates say the baker has every right to not bake a cake that goes against his religious beliefs, and a private business should be free to refuse service to anyone. Is this considered discriminatory?

Critics argue businesses are not legally allowed to discriminate, so why should this case be any different? Could a business refuse to bake a cake for a black couple? No. So why shouldn’t same-sex couples be allowed the same protection?

You’re free to believe whatever you want, but you’re not free to refuse service to someone because of who they are. In this case, the baker is refusing service to the gay couple because of who they are. They are engaging in a gay marriage ceremony because they are gay men who want to get married. It’s fundamentally about who they are as people. Is this is discrimination, plain and simple?

Freedom of speech and freedom of religion do not exempt business owners from public accommodations laws, which require them to serve customers equally. However, the Supreme Court ruled in the bakery owners favor.
