So I see Capital One is trying to get their employees shot.

At least that’s what’s gonna happen if they follow through with ANY of this (Time).

“Hello, it’s Capital One, can I come in? I brought lemonade!”

That’s something credit card customers of the Capital One bank are worrying they might hear on their front doorsteps. The credit card issuer said in a recent contract update to cardholders that it can contact customers “in any manner we choose.”

That includes calls, emails, texts, faxes or a “personal visit,” reports the Los Angeles Times. The company has also reserved the right to suppress its caller ID and identify itself however it wants, a tactic known as spoof calling.

Capital One said that, despite the legal language, it doesn’t typically pay home visits to its customers. ”Capital One does not visit our cardholders, nor do we send debt collectors to their homes or work,” the company spokeswoman said.

The bank told the L.A. Times it might occasionally “as a last resort” visit a customer’s home to repossess costly goods involved in credit promotions. But the spokesperson added that Capital One is “reviewing this language” in its contracts.

Yeah.  Go ahead and review that language REALLLL good.  And I mean THOROUGHLY.

Cause…….

….yeah.

Tuh.

Gabrielle Union May Be A Little Bit Delusional, Guys

This isn’t going to be a long post.

I’m serious.  So, check out what she said about getting a pre-nup (via People):

Forget the starry-eyed romance. Gabrielle Union says she plans to marry NBA star Dwyane Wade with an open heart – and an iron-clad prenup. 

“I’ve got to protect my stuff,” the Being Mary Jane star matter-of-factly told the ageless Arsenio Hall on The Arsenio Hall Show Monday night. 

Girl WHAT!???!??

What “stuff!?!?!?!?!”

YOU AIN’T GOT NO STUFF, GIRL!!!!!!!!!! HE has the stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

George Zimmerman Fight Back On With New Promoter?

So about this George Zimmerman fight.  Yeah.  Seems like it’s back on.

TMZ reports:

George Zimmerman’s celebrity boxing match — abruptly cancelled when the promoter pulled the plug yesterday — is back on again … promising to be a much bloodier event … according to a promoter who claims to have taken over the fight.

An online streaming service called FilmOn.com says it secured the rights to a Zimmerman fight … after the original promoter, Damon Feldman pulled out because of threats made against his kids.

FilmOn says it’s gonna give the public what it wants — blood — and tells us DMX is out as the challenger because “much bigger names than DMX” want in.

The owner of FilmOn, Alki David, tells TMZ … the fight will no longer be a celebrity boxing match… “this is going to be like Fight Club … a very bloody event.”  Alki says the fight will happen March 15 from a secret location … and all profits will go to the Trayvon Martin Foundation.

But TMZ has learned the resurrected fight is not yet a done deal — we’re told FilmOn is still negotiating with Feldman for the rights and nothing has been signed.

Feldman received threats including one tweet that read (TMZ), “Somebody should kill Damon Feldman’s son and ask him would he put his son’s killer in a celebrity boxing match.”  That’s a tough way of putting it but…that’s EXACTLY what happened here.  Talk about giving someone some perspective.

Do y’all know the most disgusting part of this new venture is?  Them saying that all proceeds will go to Trayvon’s foundation.  Like it’s some type of favor.  Like WHAT? You are giving my son’s MURDERER even MORE fame (in a VIOLENT and BLOODY fight)…and you’re gonna ease your conscience and try to make it “okay” by donating to my DEAD son’s foundation? Nah, bruh.  You can keep all of that.  And have ALL of the seats while your at it.

Ugh.  The nerve.

 

Kappa Alpha Psi…and…Hazing?

GUYSSSS…….. :-/

Okay, so read this (from FoxAtlanta.com):

Nine University of Georgia (UGA) students have surrendered to police, in connection with hazing on Thursday evening for an incident stemming from a possible “pledging event.”

The charges involved eleven members of the Zeta Iota chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity, according to UGA Police chief Jimmy Williamson.

Williamson said, “the police department obtained warrants yesterday, charging 11 individuals with hazing; there’s actually a criminal code that covers hazing, and the 11 individuals had warrants taken out. They’ve all been contacted and told they need to turn themselves into the sheriff’s office.”

Police obtained warrants on Thursday for the members after student affairs alerted the authorities about the pledging event. The incident happened in late January.

Authorities say pledges were “struck with fists” during a pledge process. However, authorities believe it only happened once. The Zeta Iota chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi was suspended during the investigation.

The nine members who turned themselves in have all bonded out, at this time.

Athens-Clarke County jail records show that the following nine (9) people were jailed and have since been released on misdemeanor charges of “Hazing Students,” Thursday:

  1. Rictavious Jerome Bowens
  2. Robert Lee Ellis
  3. Fakari Jalen Gresham
  4. Kourtland Willis Jones
  5. Jason Rasan Moffitt
  6. Acarre Dejon Patton
  7. Nicholas Brandon Pope
  8. Raheem Joel Thompson
  9. John Allen Wood

No word on the status of remaining suspects, at this time.

Excuse me, but did that say authorities believed it happened ONCE!?

Now.  Before I continue, let me express this. Disclaimer: My sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated doesn’t believe in, endorse, participate in, blah blah blah ANY form of hazing EVER.

Okay.

Listen. I would be HOT like fish grease if my entire future was FAWKED cause you couldn’t take it one night. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? Just LEAVE!?  What type of dudes are y’all out here choosing, Kappas (no pun intended)!?!?!?!?!? I don’t understand this.  What this LITERALLY means is that after ONE incident someone (or a group) ran to THE POLICE!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?  I’m not endorsing a grown man letting another grown man hit him. At all.  But, if it’s gonna be like that, (1) fight back or (2) LEAVE!?  OR. How about you wait until you graduate to become Greek?

It is not a secret that some (not ALL) BGLO’s go through some kind of process.  But.  Given the lack of being able to (1) take ANYTHING, (2) people going WAYYYY overboard (I’ve heard of some practices that are just downright stupid SMH), and (3) the LACK. OF. DISCRETION. (this REALLY burns me up), maybe it’s time to cut out all processes?  Trust me, I hate to say that (but go back up to my disclaimer tho).  This is a new breed, ladies and gentlemen.  These are kids who announce via social media what they want to “pledge” (REALLY)!?!?  This is a group of kids who sit around with other orgs and discuss what they “went through” during that process (I was taught it was NEVER to be discussed- disclaimer tho). This is a group of kids who ONLY want to join to stroll or whatever. This is a group of kids who probate without knowing ANY history (I saw that and wanted to beat the “prophytes” down SMH), probate via social media (this really happened), and again, CAN’T KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT.

Maybe it’s time to give up the intake process (again, check my disclaimer)?

Houston Independent School District.

Yes.  What you are looking at is a twitter page created by some of the children of our future.  Yes.  The name of the Twitter page is, “HISD Houston Hoes.”  And yes, the children of our future are using this page to put hoes that go to HISD schools on blast.

This is happening right now.

The page is actually disgusting.  Some dude posted a picture of some chick’s USED pad (from Milby).  What does that have to do with being a hoe?  At least she isn’t procreating ya know?  But yeah.  There are also pictures of vaginas on there (depending on the age this could be a felony, huh?)…that young girls have sent their “boyfriends” or whatever…and are now all up on the internet.  SMH.

I hope these youths know all about IP addresses and such cause you better believe there is an investigation going on.

RIP to our future, y’all.
