This is not a prank guest speaker Ralph Messer called the troubled man of God a King and preceded to conduct a mock ceremony of the title before the church. I will withhold judgment. Look at the video here: Kang Eddie and please just give us your comments as I am clearly at a loss of words.
In not so surprising news of the day there is another report that Black and Latino’s are testing behind whites in reading and math in school. The gap is closed during elementary and middle school but once high school begins the scores indicate the same level as 30 years ago. While there certainly is plenty of blame to go around from inadequate resources to teachers who lower their expectations for minorities this epidemic has to be put in the forefront of issues in our community. If you have the time to get angry and upset over who Tyler Perry is putting in his movie then you have the time to focus on the miseducation of minority children and use our influence to educate our communities the same way we did after slavery. What do you think about minorities falling behind. Read the rest of this compelling article here:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/23/black-latino-students-per_n_1224790.html

In last nights episode of TI and Tiny, TI had a book signing in LA and took his wife Tiny along with him. To make sure she wasn’t board Tiny brought along her own friends including her friend/hair stylist Shekinah. As the episode progresses Shekinah becomes frustrated with Tiny because she hangs with her “rich friends” and she is broke. Shekinah says Tiny treats her like a friend one minute and an employee the next and it gets confusing to her. It became obviously confusing when Tiny was pitching a late night talk show ideal to Tip’s agent. She continued to speak out of turn and irritated TIP’s agent by doing so. I sat there in disbelief as Tiny actually explained herself to Shekinah instead of putting her in her place. TI said it best you can be my friend for free or do your job and accept your salary and the perks that comes along with this agreement. What do you think about this?
