The ’70’s funk and soul icon Sly Stone, front man of Sly and the Family Stone, has called a van home for years after falling out of the entertainment limelight along with being cheated out of millions of dollars for his music.
Being a huge fan of Sly and the family I for one was disheartened to hear the legendary guitarist and all around musician had hit the skids so hard.
I have followed his fall from grace and the defection of women, friends, fans, and business partners. Lose the money lose the phoneys, lose the trophies.
Sly found this out when he dropped hard from a lofty mansion status to the gutters of poverty and damned near homelessness.
“The petition is titled, “Sign the petition to fire Jesse Williams from Grey’s Anatomy for racist rant,” and was created by “Erin Smith,” which is probably a fake name because who’d want the world to know he or she was really a jackass?” Source — The Root
“The two women that actually found me passed out on the floor after I left somebody’s bachelor party and put me in rehab the next day. And supported me and pushed me and give me a reason to get up and go and chase it day after day after day.”
On Sunday, June 29th, 2016 Samuel L. Jackson stood on stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles California and accepted the 2016 BET Lifetime Achievement Award.
The 67-year-old actor did not hesitate to extol accolades upon his wife LaTanya Richardson, 66, and their 34-year-old daughter Zoe for urging him to go to rehab after finding him passed out on the floor after a night of partying.
Decades before we knew of Samuel L. Jackson he was dealing with demons a lot of us are dealing with every day. Fortunately, for him, he was blessed with two strong believing women that made all the difference in his world and his life.
There are a couple of stories in the news that inspired my post this evening. They are stories of men of color being slighted and embarrassed because of their race, and then finding themselves having to what I call race shame the perpetrators.
The first one allegedly took place on a train. Now let’s be honest, these incidents happen all the time, but we are so used to them and other day to day slights and indignities that might go unnoticed, that we don’t even sweat them when they do happen.
“Former Washington Wizards player Etan Thomas was denied an empty seat on a train that was later given to a white man.
So he took to Facebook Friday with his story, and the post went viral: It’s been shared more than 29,000 times.
The NBA baller reported that he was looking for a seat on a full train when he asked a woman if the empty seat next to her was available. She responded that someone was already sitting there. What happens next, according to Thomas, is why he took her photo and posted it to his social media accounts.
Lord Jesus this One had me laughing so hard I lost my breath. Bologna made with mule meat Dineva? That one got me – funny as all get out.
Hey, Y’all I’m going to jump start this post with a blurb from the full post. Hit the jump link to get the full load over at FD’s.
Lord have mercy Jesus! Where does Mona get these damn people from. Chile, I thought these people were supposed to be just putting on for the camera, not cutting up in real life. Chile, no tea no shade, but you would think that after Karen’s ass is roaming the streets freely for damn near having someone killed, that she would go sit her got damn ass down somewhere. Looks as if Karen may be on her way to joining her son in prison. Somebody get Johny Cochran on the line. I know he’s dead, but instead of stealing, KK might want to find a way to resurrect his ass,

Looks as if Karen may be on her way to joining her son in prison. Somebody get Johny Cochran on the line. I know he’s dead, but instead of stealing, KK might want to find a way to resurrect his ass, because from the looks of things, she’s going to need him.
