Wolf Blitzer TRIIIIIIED it with community activist Deray McKesson, ohhh BUT…

….Deray wasn’t having it…

CNN has consistently shown how they feel about people of color throughout their reporting of police brutality and the murders of citizens at the hands of police.

Word to Deray, tho.

Y’all saw Deray have to gather himself real quick at the 1:33 mark? LOL. Whew. People just LOVE to bring up Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., huh?

Tuh.

“But I also know that Freddie Gray will never be back, and that those windows will be.” – Deray

“A riot is the language of the unheard.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

BOOM.

Floyd Mayweather’s 10 year old son’s handwritten police report (Floyd assaulted his mother).

I know this is all coming back up in full force given the fight on Saturday, but still, this is chilling:

Mind you, this was in 2010, but still. It’s heartbreaking to see.

Woman says all blacks should kill white cops on Facebook…then gets arrested

Police were alerted to this post made on Facebook:

via Breaking911.com

EAST POINT (GA.) POLICE DEPARTMENT

EAST POINT (GA.) POLICE DEPARTMENT

Here are more details:

Ebony Dickens, 33, was using the screen name Tiffany Milan when she wrote the  “Death to all white cops nation wide” message.

According to WSBTV, the FBI, Homeland Security, District Attorney’s office and the New York Police Department assisted East Point police with Ebony Dickens’ arrest.

The Atlanta Police made the following statement on Facebook: Thank you for all the alerts about this Facebook poster. Once we received all your messages, we alerted our Homeland Security Unit who worked all day to locate this person. Once she was found to be living in East Point, we turned the case over to East Point. Thanks again!

So the charge is “disseminating information related to terrorist acts.”

According to the NY Daily News this statement was given:

“That’s 15 people that she’s talking about killing within a day or so, so whether she is serious or not that’s something that we have to take seriously,” East Point Lt. Cliff Chandler said.

This post goes on to say that she may be charged with more later.

Oooooookay.

So. This is awful. Not going to pretend it isn’t. And I’m aware that you can’t threaten the lives of people. But a charge of terrorist acts? I tried to look it up to see exactly what that consists of, but I didn’t come up with anything…only information about homeland security, etc.

It’s not okay at all, but does it fall under terrorism because of the entity targeted? Or because it’s a threat made against a group?

Anyway, yeah this is a disgusting thing to post. As someone mentioned in the comments, we MUST understand that it’s NOT *just* white cops that are the problem. It’s crooked cops PERIOD. It’s the entire SYSTEM. You will easily find people who will tell you black cops have been just as awful to them.

Gotta hold each other accountable. Imagine this was a white lady posting about black cops.

What would be our reaction then?

 

Ciara has a new boo, and y’all are being so petty on Future’s Instagram account (*giggles*).

If you haven’t heard, Ciara and Russell Wilson are rumored to be dating. And while we weren’t sure if it was true that he was taking her as his date to a White House state dinner, well…

Did the Houston Rockets go too far on their Twitter account?

When the game was underway (ROUND TWO, BABY!!!!!) last night between the Houston Rockets and the Dallas Mavericks, this is a tweet that was posted from the Rockets’ official social media account:

via Twitter (@SBNation)

As you can see, there are two emojis at the top of a horse and a gun.

Seems as if there was some backlash because the tweet was removed and then this was posted:

Maybe because of this?

Here are some responses…

Now, of course these are probably Rockets fans responding to the Rockets’ account. So I went and looked at responses to the SB Nation account…

So. There you have it.

I’ll save my opinion seeing as though I’m TOTALLY biased (H-TOWN!!!!!!), but what do you guys think?

You know, I understand it rubbed some people the wrong way, but I DEFINITELY don’t think it warranted him getting fired.

Unbelievable.

Have we really become this sensitive? Over some emojis? REALLY? And with SPORTS!? The home of trash talk?

Sad.

And this:

YES.
