Injustice Anywhere is a Threat to Justice Everywhere

Wake Forest and Salem Students, or...ganized by Muslim peers, came together to show solidarity with Trayvonn Martin and Shaima Al Awadhi.

It's been a month since the tragic death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin in Florida. The teenager was walking to his father's girlfriend's house after buying some iced tea and skittles at a nearby convenience store when a neighborhood watch volunteer felt Martin was a threat and decided to follow him. George Zimmerman followed Martin and next thing you know, Martin was shot to death. Zimmerman says it was "self-defense", while the country sees it as racism.
To add to the country's hatred to Zimmerman, media pundit Geraldo Rivera claims that if Martin didn't wear a hoodie, he'd still be alive today.
Zimmerman hasn't been arrested and isn't being charged due to the Florida Law, Stand Your Ground.

To add to the chaos, a muslim woman was beaten at her California home last Wednesday and left behind was a note calling her a terrorist and saying she should go back to her country. Shaima Alawadi was found by her 17-year old a pool of her own blood. Shaima wore a hijab, an Islamic headscarf. When she received the earlier threatening note, she ignored it, assuming it was a harmless joke, her daughter said to local reporters. Alawadi was pulled from life-support this past Saturday and her killer/s still have not been found.

This seriously sickens me. In 2012, we're still dealing with ignorant people. Hopefully these people did not die in vain and we all use this as a lesson to stand up for justice EVERYWHERE!

Mazel Tov, Drake's Bar Mitzvah

Drizzy Drake is shooting a new video for his single HYFR (Hell Ya, F*ckin' Right) and the concept of the video is the re-enactment of the day he became a man (a day some are still skeptical about). Drake's new video takes place at a Miami Jewish Temple recreates his Bar Mitzvah.

The video has a gaggle of video vixens, of course DJ Khaled, Weezy and Trigga are on-set.
I bet Drake wishes these guys were at his actual Bar Mitzvah, minus the Degrassi castmembers who most likely attended the ceremony 10 + years ago.

Leave it to YMCMB to make the yarmulke gangsta.

The video hasn't been released yet, but below are some of the behind-the-scenes shots from Rap Dose:

Mazal Tov!


Throwback Monday

I've been grindin' hard lately and this song has been my anthem for the past few months.
Funny how when this song came out Jigga claims:

Shit I led a life you can write a book on
Sex, murder and mayhem romance for the street
Man and I tell ya it'll be the bestseller

Who would've thought, Jay would actually release a book about 10 years later....and it would become a New York Times Bestseller.
Dreams can come true!

Irrelevant Celebrity New: Jessica Simpson Poses Nude on the Cover of Elle


We all thought Britney was ugly pregnant, until.....Jessica Simpson's been knocked-up.
She's just letting it all go until her Weight Watcher's promotion begins, isn't she?

To add to her schtick of "I'm confident, now......No! Wait I'm not again!" Her and her preggo self pose for the cover of Elle in the nude  (Hell, Demi Moore circa-1990s), to once again prove how being pregnant has given her, her long lost confidence back.

Personally, I give pregnant women credit for all the hardships they face for 9-10months. Someday I will bear a child and will probably give Britney and Jessica a run for their money.
I mean, HELLO! Eating for TWO for almost a year!? Sign me up!

I'm just over Jessica Simpson....well...I've been over her since 2005. I'm tired of her and her camp's desperations to try to make her relevant....and I don't find her cover photo tasteful. She should've posed for it a month or two ago.
Look. Jess. Your clothing line is on-point. Just stick to that.

But, with that being said. Congratulations on your baby girl!

Throwback Monday

I totally remember slow dancing to this song at one of my Jr. High, well....watching others slow dancing to it and wishing I had a boyfriend.
Funny how all the boys I liked back then....ended up being hot-messes now.
