Singer CeeLo Green took to Twitter today to make an attempt to define what rape is, shortly after pleading no contest for charges that he slipped a woman ecstasy without her consent in 2012

My n****.. Not you too.. Smh..

SMH dude essentially told on himself.  

Holy shit. Fuck you CeeLo

yeah… all of the above comments.

I am so disappointed and angry. I loved his music at almost every stage and for him to be a rapist just ruins all of that.

He is 100 percent not sorry. He is admitting that he indeed did rape a woman. God only knows how many other victims there are out there.

He’s married with children. Lord only knows what kind of abuse they have had to endure or victim blaming mindsets he has passed on to them.

I I hope they put him under the jail and the woman he raped get’s all the care she needs. He an afford it. She better have life paid for at his expense.

ugh ugh ugh

Karyn Parson’s Mission to Share the Untold Stories of Black History Heroes
by Jessica Dickerson
Hilary Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air may not have been known as a fierce advocate for education. But the actress who played her sure is. 
Last year, Karyn Parsons — actress, mother, author and amateur historian — founded Sweet Blackberry, a nonprofit devoted to teaching kids about some of the lesser-known figures of black history. The organization publishes books and videos on people like Henry “Box” Brown and Garrett Morgan, and facilitates school visits and children’s workshops centered around promoting ‘creativity, literacy skills and social responsibility.’
Sweet Blackberry recently launched a Kickstarter for its latest project, a short film that will tell the story of Janet Collins, the first African-American prima ballerina in the Metropolitan Ballet. Collins, who died in 2003 at age 86, rose to fame despite being shut out of dance theaters that refused to let her perform unless it was in whiteface…The Huffington Post spoke with Parsons about Sweet Blackberry’s history and its mission. As the Sweet Blackberry website proclaims: ‘This culture is American culture; this history is American History’…continue reading HuffPost’s interview with Karyn Parson

DECATUR, Ga. — Police are searching for suspects in a deadly Decatur kidnapping.

Authorities say a man and a woman were kidnapped early Saturday morning and found just a few hours later handcuffed and each shot in the head. Their families have pulled together a $15,000 reward for anyone who can tell them who did it.

The family says Jeronta Brown and his fiance, Briana Brooks, took their 8-month-old baby and 14-year-old niece out for a meal. When they got back to their Decatur home, several men jumped them.

The children were able to get away, but Brown and Brooks were put into the back of a van.

Brown’s aunt, Myesha Brown, said the men tried to get inside the house before leaving.

"The guys walked up, started ringing on the doorbell, beating on the door, yelling, ‘FBI, FBI,’" Brown said.

Instead of opening the door, Brown said they called 911. Police did show up, but Brown said they didn’t take the kidnapping seriously.

"We were unable to get the kidnappers what they wanted due to Dekalb County thinking that this was a joke, this was something Jeronta set up," she said.

Brown said a family member got a call shortly after the kidnappers took off, demanding $150,000.

By daybreak, a driver 17 miles away in northwest Atlanta spotted Brooks and Brown lying in the street.

Jerota Brown was dead. Brooks, seven months pregnant with the couple’s second child, was alive. Doctors were able to deliver the baby girl by C-section. Brown says the infant is doing fine, but Brooks’ condition remains uncertain.

DeKalb County police were unavailable to talk about the crime and their response to it because of the holiday weekend.

This is all over the news here [Atlanta, GA] and it’s really fucked up. Police incompetence directly facilitated his death and her grave injuries.
