Donald Trump, Drugs, and Friday: Jay Z Says Trump is a Joke "With All Disrespect" @balleralert Jay Z Says Trump is a Joke “With All Disrespect” – blogged by @MsJennyb (video @bbcradio1) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the heels of the release of his most personal album to date, Jay-Z has been sitting down for interviews to divulge his thought process throughout the making of the highly anticipated album, “4:44.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In his most recent interview with BBC Radio 1 on Friday, JayZ discussed his views on Donald Trump after having campaigned for both BarackObama and HillaryClinton in past elections. As Trump continues to reverse Obama-era legislations, alongside Jeff Sessions, who is eager to reignite the war on drugs, Jay Z shared his thoughts on Trump and the current state of politics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I believe that we are resilient, especially us as black people and especially the culture. We’ve been through so much more than this guy,” he said. “This guy, I’m looking at him like, man, this is a joke, with all – I can’t even say with all due respect – with all disrespect.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Until everyone is free, no one is free,” Jay added. “Period. That’s just a fact. We are all linked some kind of way. So if you oppress a certain people, everyone is in danger, karmically and in real life. If I’m being oppressed and you have this big, nice mansion, I’m coming inside there. That’s going to happen, that’s just how life is.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the country is struggling with racial injustices and increased hate crimes in the wake of the Donald Trump era, Hov believes it is something that we, as a nation and culture, can overcome. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I don’t think that this is happening if we weren’t prepared to handle it,” he said. “I’m just looking forward to what’s next after that, because usually when things are darkest, then light is on its way. I’m not fearful.”

Memes, Obama, and Barack Obama: Barack Obama Calls Republicans' Attempt to Repeal Affordable Care Act, "Aggravating @balleralert Barack Obama Calls Republicans' Attempt to Repeal Affordable Care Act, "Aggravating"-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When it comes to the current state of the country, many of us try to remain optimistic. But recently, even former president BarackObama had to admit how fed up he is with some of these issues. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ On Wednesday, Obama spoke during a ceremony held by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation about the Republicans’ recent attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “When I see people trying to undo that hard-earned progress for the 50th or 60th time, with bills that would raise costs or reduce coverage, or roll back protections for older Americans or people with pre-existing conditions … for whom coverage would, once again, be almost unobtainable, it is aggravating,” Obama said. “And all of this being done without any demonstrable economic or actuarial or plain common-sense rationale, it frustrates me.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “And it’s certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on our constituents, but typically that’s how progress is won and how progress is maintained,” he continued. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The GOP Congress is not backing down when it comes to this issue though. They are currently trying to pass a bill proposed by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.). The proposal is intended to repeal and replace the ACA with a new health care system that would be detrimental to millions, especially those with serious medical illnesses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What do you think about Obama's statement?

Anaconda, Bailey Jay, and Bodies : At Least 20 Children Dead After Magnitude-7.1 Earthquake Hit Mexico @balleralert At Least 20 Children Dead After Magnitude-7.1 Earthquake Hit Mexico – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the 32nd anniversary of the biggest earthquake to rattle Mexico’s capital, a magnitude-7.1 earthquake rocked central Mexico, leaving over 200 people dead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the quake brought down at least 44 buildings, including the Enrique Rebsamen elementary school in Mexico City. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto visited the school hours after the tragedy to find the bodies of at least 20 children and two adults. However, about 30 children and eight adults are still missing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Emergency officials have begun recovery efforts to look for survivors as they rummage through the wreckage. The deadly quake came just eight days after a magnitude-8.1 earthquake hit Mexico’s southern Pacific coast. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the city is built on a former lake bed, which intensifies the “shaking by factors of 100 or more,” a seismologist stated. “By comparison, the worst condition seen in Los Angeles during an earthquake is shaking amplified by a factor of five,” Lucy Jones said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Following the disaster, the U.S. State Department announced that it would be ready to provide assistance if needed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We stand ready to provide assistance should our neighbors request our help. Our embassy in Mexico City has sent out public messages to U.S. citizens in Mexico, and the embassy stands ready to provide consular assistance to any U.S. citizens who may have been affected. We offer our condolences to any who were injured or lost loved ones.”

College, Confidence, and Crime: Campus Security Guard Accidentally Shoots Himself and Tells Police lt Was a Black Man in a Hoodie and "Short Afro" @balleralert Campus Security Guard Accidentally Shoots Himself and Tells Police It Was a Black Man in a Hoodie and “Short Afro” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tuesday night, Minnesota College was placed on locked down after a security guard said he was shot and assaulted by a black man with a “short Afro, wearing a hoodie. The guard’s claim prompted a lockdown of 1,800 students and summoned 55 police officers, a state patrol helicopter and four K-9 units. Problem is, there was no assailant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The following day, BrentAhlers allegedly admitted he hadn’t been assaulted by a black man, but that he accidently shot himself in the shoulder on the St. Catherine University campus in St. Paul, Minn. According to reports, Ahlers was not even permitted to carry a gun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the NY Daily News, while officials refused to take the guard’s report lightly, their reservations about Ahler’s kept them from releasing a description of the alleged perpetrator. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I think early on, some of the facts of this case weren’t adding up for us,” St. Paul Police Sgt said in a press conference. “We didn’t have the confidence in the description to act on it.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ahlers has been charged with falsely reporting a crime, which is a misdemeanor. He told officials that he was simply worried about losing his job, as the school doesn’t allow its guards to carry a weapon. However, the school relieved Ahler’s of his duties, revealing it “strongly condemns racial discrimination, racial stereotyping, and racial profiling of any kind.”

Anaconda, Black Lives Matter, and Church: 54 years ago today, 4 little black girls in Birmingham, Alabama were killed whern the KKK bombed their church IN MEMORY OF ADBS MKS COLLINS CAROL ROBERTSON Instead of cracking down on the white terrorist cells, the FBI and CIA worked for decades to harass, prosecute, and murder civil rights leaders. Instead of police infiltrating and disrupting the white terrorist cells, the KKK infiltrated law enforcement THIS DAY IN HISTORY . Four black schoolgirls killed in Birmingham 💔 . On this day in 1963, a bomb explodes during Sunday morning services in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, killing four young girls. . With its large African-American congregation, the 16th Street Baptist Church served as a meeting place for civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., who once called Birmingham a “symbol of hardcore resistance to integration.” Alabama’s governor, George Wallace, made preserving racial segregation one of the central goals of his administration, and Birmingham had one of the most violent and lawless chapters of the Ku Klux Klan. . The church bombing was the third in Birmingham in 11 days after a federal order came down to integrate Alabama’s school system. Fifteen sticks of dynamite were planted in the church basement, underneath what turned out to be the girls’ restroom. The bomb detonated at 10:19 a.m., killing Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson & Addie Mae Collins–all 14 years old–and 11-year-old Denise McNair. Immediately after the blast, church members wandered dazed & bloodied, covered with white powder and broken stained glass, before starting to dig in the rubble to search for survivors. More than 20 other members of the congregation were injured in the blast. . When thousands of angry black protesters assembled at the crime scene, Wallace sent hundreds of police and state troopers to the area to break up the crowd. Two young black men were killed that night, one by police and another by racist thugs. Meanwhile, public outrage over the bombing continued to grow, drawing international attention to Birmingham. At a funeral for three of the girls (one’s family preferred a separate, private service), King addressed more than 8,000 mourners. . A well-known Klan member, Robert Chambliss, was charged with murder : with buying 122 sticks of dynamite. In October 1963, Chambliss was cleared of the murder charge & received a six-month jail sentence & a $100 fine for the dynamite. Although a subsequent FBI investigation identified three other men. .
