San Francisco 49ers, Basketball, and Cleveland Cavaliers: LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick ls Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL @balleralert zar LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick Is Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL– blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Sunday, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBronJames showed his support for ColinKaepernick and his fight for social justice. The baller, who has been deemed the “greatest basketball player on the planet,” agreed with the notion that league owners are blackballing the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I love football, but I’m not part of the NFL. I don’t represent the NFL,” James said, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN. “I don’t know their rules and regulations. But I do know Kap is getting a wrongdoing, I do know that. Just watching, he’s an NFL player. He’s an NFL player and you see all these other quarterbacks out there and players out there that get all these second and third chances that are nowhere near as talented as him. It just feels like he’s been blackballed out of the NFL. So, I definitely do not respect that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Bleacher Report, since Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the Niners earlier this year, 42 other quarterbacks have signed contracts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The only reason I could say he’s not on a team is because the way he took a knee. That’s the only reason,” James said of Kaepernick’s protest of police brutality during the national anthem. The movement began during the 2016 NFL preseason and has since expanded throughout different sports and continued through the 2017-18 season, despite Kaepernick’s unemployment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I watch football every Sunday, every Thursday, every Monday night. I see all these quarterbacks – first-string, second –team, third-team quarterbacks-that play sometimes when the starter gets hurt or are starters that play. Kap is better than a lot of those guys. Let’s just be honest.”

Jay, Jay Z, and Meek Mill: JAY-Z Pens Report In Support Of Meek Mill: "Probation ls A Trap And We Must Fight For Meek And Everyone Else Unjustly Sent To Prison" @balleralert JAY-Z Pens Report In Support Of Meek Mill: "Probation Is A Trap And We Must Fight For Meek And Everyone Else Unjustly Sent To Prison" - blogged by @baetoven_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an opinion piece for the NewYorkTimes titled, “The Criminal Justice System Stalks Black People Like Meek Mill," JAYZ outlined flaws in the criminal justice system and continued his support of his Roc Nation artist in the wake of Meek’s recent prison sentence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jay-Z begins by arguing that "For about a decade, [Meek]'s been stalked by a system that considers the slightest infraction a justification for locking him back inside." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "What’s happening to MeekMill is just one example of how our criminal justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people every day," the "4:44" artist wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Probation is a trap and we must fight for Meek and everyone else unjustly sent to prison," he continued. "It’s time we highlight the random ways people trapped in the criminal justice system are punished every day. The system treats them as a danger to society, consistently monitors and follows them for any minor infraction — with the goal of putting them back in prison." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jay-Z concluded the piece by directing readers to Color of Change, an organization that advocates for courts to treat people on parole or probation in Philadelphia more fairly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The music mogul, who previously called Meek's sentence "unjust and heavy-handed" also stopped his show in Dallas last week to denounce Meek's two to four-year prison sentence.

Head, Memes, and Money: Utah Nurse Reaches $500,000 in Settlement Money After Being Arrested for Doing Her Job @balleralert Utah Nurse Reaches $500,000 in Settlement Money After Being Arrested for Doing Her Job - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A Utah nurse was aggressively arrested this past July for doing her job. She has now reached $500,000 in settlement money with Salt Lake City and the university that manages the hospital where she works. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On July 26th, AlexWubbels was arrested for refusing to let DetectiveJeffPayne draw blood from an unconscious patient who was involved in a car crash. Payne's body cam footage shows him man-handling Wubbels during the conflict. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wubbels explained to the detective that he's required to have a warrant or the patient's consent before blood is drawn. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I’m just trying to do what I’m supposed to do, that’s all,” said Wubbels, the head nurse of the hospital’s burn unit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wubbels' answer wasn't good enough for Payne, so he pressured her more. When she still refused, Payne chased her down and handcuffed her as she screamed for help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not only was the detective fired from the Salt Lake City Police Department last month but his supervisor, James Tracy, also got a little piece of justice - he was demoted for assisting Payne with the arrest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And Wubbels' keeps adding to her good deeds list. She's decided to use her settlement money to help people obtain body cam footage and will donate a portion of the $500,000 to the UtahNursesAssociation and to support the national EndNurseAbuse campaign.

Barbie, Doctor, and Facebook: Freshman At University of Hartford Arrested For Harassing Roommate And Smearing Bodily Fluids On Her Belongings @balleralert Freshman At University of Hartford Arrested For Harassing Roommate And Smearing Bodily Fluids On Her Belongings - blogged by @baetoven_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the MiamiHerald, University of Hartford student Brianna Brochu was arrested and charged with third-degree criminal mischief and second-degree breach of peace after tampering with her roommate's belongings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Chennel Rowe — aka Jazzy — says she never got along with Brochu. After Rowe got a new dorm assignment and notified her roommate, Brochu posted a cryptic message online that read: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Finally did it ya girl got rid of her roommate! After 1 1-2 months of spitting in her coconut oil, putting moldy clam dip in her lotions, rubbing used tampons on her backpack, putting her toothbrush where the sun doesn’t shine and so much more I can finally say goodbye to Jamaican Barbie.” The post has since been deleted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rowe chose to tell her story on Facebook Live, alleging that Brochu even posted pictures of her backpack with blood spots on it.

Ass, Children, and Doctor: The Acceptant Nature of Blacks @balleralert The Acceptant Nature of Blacks - blogged by @niksofly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As long as blacks can get an apology or leave it in God's hands, then whatever tribulation comes our way will be minimized. We have that acceptant and forgiving nature. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I watched my mother be denied care and literally bleed to death before my eyes. Her soul bled out before my eyes. She had been delayed transfusions for days . I was told to leave it in God's hands and to consider the doctor's emotions. I'm still f*cked up behind it enduring nightmares, battling grief and rage. I don't think the doctor has lost a minute of sleep, but I'm suppose to consider his emotions and let God deal with him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HoustonTexans owner BobMcNair referenced not allowing the "inmates to run the prison.” We are fake outraged, but as long as he issued that apology, most of us will go back to watching the game. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ White cop murders a black man, she gets off and can now have her record expunged. "God sees all. He has the last say.” There are children that will never hug their parents, mothers that will never kiss their children. A father can never play catch with his son. We are to deal with that pain so long as an apology accompanies it or we know "God will handle it.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why is it God has to handle our battles? By all accounts I'm Christian, but I never hear my non-black counterparts issue a plea to God when they are wronged. Jeremy Mardis’ family didn't have to wait on God, but Alton Sterling family does. Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray and all of those who have become hashtags have to leave their justice up to God. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And don't get me wrong, I'm not questioning God, I'm questioning the paradox of religion and how it controls blacks. We have to forgive and relinquish our human right to want justice or ramifications for God to handle it while others see justice. We have to wait on God and accept half -ass apologies, yet no one else needs or waits on God, but us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm tired of that sh*t

Crime, Family, and Jamie Foxx: Jamie Foxx Joins The Cast of "Signal Hill" As Black Panther Leader Geronimo Pratt @balleralert Jamie Foxx Joins The Cast of “Signal Hill” As Black Panther Leader Geronimo Pratt – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The triple-threat, actor, singer, and comedian JamieFoxx has officially joined the cast of “Signal Hill,” a film about Johnnie Cochran’s determination to seek justice in the policy brutality case in 1981. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Deadline, Foxx will be joining the likes of Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Banks and more to tackle the moving story. Mackie will play Cochran, who rose to fame as a legal powerhouse in the case. Banks has signed on as Mary Neiswender, an investigative newspaper reporter for the Long Beach Press-Telegram, who investigated the Signal Hill case. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As for Foxx, the actor will be teaming up with Taylor Hackford, the man behind “Ray” for which Foxx won the Best Actor Oscar. In “Signal Hill,” Foxx will play Elmer “Geronimo” Pratt, the former Black Panther party leader that was sent to prison for more than two decades for a crime that he didn’t commit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Written by David McMillan, the film centers on the case of Cal State Long Beach star Ron Settles, who had been booked for speeding in L.A. County. However after his arrest, Settles was found hanged in his cell, uncovering a slew of police misconduct and brutality. With Cochran’s legal expertise, the family was awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in a civil suit after an autopsy showed Settles was choked to death.

Food, Juvenile, and Memes: Man Arrested For Stealing $1.2 Million In Fajitas @balleralert Man Arrested For Stealing $1.2 Million In Fajitas - blogged by @miss_binky ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A Texas man is facing felony charges of first degree theft after being accused of stealing over $1.2 million in fajitas. Gilberto Escamilla was responsible for ordering food for the Cameron County Juvenile Justice Department in Bronwsville, and it turns out he was ordering a little "extra" for himself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Escamilla had taken a day off for a medical appointment last week, when the kitchen received a call about their expected 800-pound fajita delivery. The woman who answered the call insisted that the food service driver was mistaken, because the facility doesn't even serve fajitas. However, the driver informed her that he has been delivering fajitas to that location for over nine years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The next day, Escamilla was confronted about the delivery, and admitted that he had been stealing fajitas from the company for years. He was immediately terminated, and subsequently arrested after a search warrant turned up packets of fajitas in his home refrigerator. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to District Attorney, Luis V. Saenz, Escamilla had been selling the fajitas on the side. "He would literally, on the day he ordered them, deliver them to customers he had already lined up. We’ve been able to uncover two of his purchasers, and they are cooperating with the investigation." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After more investigating, including going through past purchase orders and invoices, the DA's office determined that over the years Escamilla was able to steal $1,251,578 worth of fajitas.
