“No Respect – Teacher vs. Student” – Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


A Maryland teacher (pictured above), was arrested and booked into the county jail after she was caught on video fighting a student in her classroom.

The teacher, Vivian Noirie, 36, was charged with child abuse and assaulting the student at Largo High School. The fight occurred last Friday, Nov. 15, when the student confronted Noirie after she contacted her parents the day before. Cell phone video footage shows the teacher repeatedly punching and kicking the student, who eventually fights back.

The video is both disgraceful and disturbing. In reviewing the video you couldn’t tell the teacher from the student, although the teacher appears to be dressed for a fight.

After the student is pulled off of the teacher, she can be heard screaming at her and calling her a bitch, as if she were her teachers equal. Where should the lines be drawn? Where is the RESPECT?

Tune in at 6:30 p.m. EST with our host, Ms. Tracy L. Bell for her commentary – “No Respect – Teacher vs. Student” on “Conversations Of A Sistah

Substance Abuse & Mental Health Issues – Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Dealing with substance abuse, alcoholism, or drug addiction is never easy, and it’s even more difficult when you’re also struggling with mental health issues in addition.

In co-occurring disorders, both the mental health issue and the drug or alcohol addiction have their own unique symptoms that may get in the way of your ability to function at work or school and/or even to maintain a stable home life. These disorders can develop when you can’t handle life’s difficulties and relate to others. To make the situation more complicated, the co-occurring disorders also affect each other. When a mental health problem goes untreated, the substance abuse problem usually gets worse. Both conditions can lead to detrimental outcomes.

Join our host Ms. Tracy L. Bell at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” with her special guest in our studio “Dr. Brianna Gaynor” (pictured left), Director of Peace of Mind Psychological Services as they sit down in our studios to discuss “Substance Abuse & Mental Health Issues

Most of us have felt like our trust has been compromised at some point in our lives. Needless to say, these experiences can be very painful. Perhaps we’re still scared to trust again.

A Women’s Right to Choose or Not? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Roe vs. Wade gave women the right to choose abortion. We can all be sensitive to the devastating impact of rape and abuse on women and the pressure to abort when the mother’s life is at risk or she’s been violated sexually.

We are also very aware of the fact that since 1973, Roe vs. Wade set a precedent where abortion is legal across the country up to the point of viability.

But Roe vs. Wade is currently being challenged with new laws in the states, and the number of states with pending highly restrictive abortion laws is growing. On Friday, Missouri’s legislature passed a bill to outlaw almost all abortions after eight weeks. This came on the heels of Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signing into law a near total abortion ban law in her state.

Do Women still have the right to choose or NOT?

Alabama’s abortion law is the most extreme. The legislation carries a life sentence of 99 years behind bars for abortionists and pregnant women who seek their services.

Republican-led states Georgia, Ohio, Mississippi, and Kentucky have all passed so-called “heartbeat bills” outlawing abortions if a fetal heartbeat is detected.

Missouri’s Senate just passed a heartbeat bill that outlaws all abortions after 8 weeks.

Georgia’s bill threatens to punish women even if they leave the state to get an abortion.
