Tuesday, The House of Representatives passed a resolution apologizing for slavery and, the Jim Crow area.
The nonbinding resolution, which passed on a voice vote, was introduced by Rep. Steve Cohen, a white lawmaker who represents a majority black district in Memphis, Tennessee.
While many states have apologized for slavery, it is first time a branch of the federal government has done so, an aide to Cohen said.
"In passing the resolution, the House also acknowledged the "injustice, cruelty, brutality and inhumanity of slavery and Jim Crow."
"Jim Crow," or Jim Crow laws, were state and local laws enacted mostly in the Southern and border states of the United States between the 1870s and 1965, when African Americans were denied the right to vote and other civil liberties and were legally segregated from whites. "
He later went on to say
"African-Americans continue to suffer from the consequences of slavery and Jim Crow -- long after both systems were formally abolished -- through enormous damage and loss, both tangible and intangible, including the loss of human dignity and liberty, the frustration of careers and professional lives, and the long-term loss of income and opportunity," the resolution states.
Congress has waited too long to be empathetic, apologetic, and sympathetic towards African Americans. Slavery was over 200 years ago and, you wanna apologize now; When we are still being enslaved but, this time there's no whips and chains. We are still being treated as second-class citizens. You ask WHY??? The reason why we are being treated as second-class citizens and slaves are because, RACISM is alive and well. Racism and Slavery fuel each other like "gas for a car" you can't have one with out the other. The effects of slavery and racism still lingers in our subconscious, conscious, and unconscious mind. The scars will never be healed with a simple half-hearted no- feeling- involved "I'm Sorry". Some may FORGIVE; While I will neither FORGIVE nor FORGET.

Here are some pictures from the accident:
Here's also a snipped of the interview with Kenyon, Trina and a witness on scene.
Raymond Marin, Witness
“As we were coming down from the airport trailing behind the vehicles we see the white car that Trina and Kenyon Martin were travelling in was cutting across and the same time a green van came and they hit each other and they went straight across and one of the children nearly came out of the vehicle because of the impact. It was very very hard and horrifying and hmmm, I still left stunned right now.”
But as stunning as it was, Trina got a few minutes later visibly shaken but told me she was unhurt.
Trina can you tell us anything about what you just experienced?
Trina, Involved in Accident
“It was just…I don’t know.”
She was embraced by Kenyon Martin who was also unhurt. The driver of the Excursion, J.A. Jex says he received a minor injury.
But the same couldn’t be said for George Abraham. He was driving the minivan with his 12 and 9 year old sons inside. The front side of his vehicle was crushed. His children 9 year old Johnny and 12 year Delane were hurt, and in the moments after the accident he was both angered and in anguish.
George Abraham, Involved in Accident
“I was on my right hand side and this vehicle overtake on this side. That guy was in the wrong in that vehicle. I was on my correct hand. Ahh my shoulder.”
Who were you with in the van?
“My two little babies.”
Trina and Kenyon Martin left in another vehicle and so did their luggage. The Abrahams meanwhile were assisted by paramedics. 12 year old Delane was seriously hurt and had to be carried on a stretcher. Diane Finnegan is one of the organizers of the visit.

Khia is back at it again. This time it's not a blog and/or beef song about how she hates JANET, JERMAINE, T.I, JACKI-O, or her archnemesis TRINA. It's the debut of her new video "Be Your Lady". Ok, I know some people like "Man, khia back with another homeade ass video lol" because, I said the same thing but, Khia to me is good t.v. because, she stirs up as much drama as NEW YORK and, her other FOE "William Wendy"; I mean Wendy William's whose spot she says she wants to take because she is "dried up". Well Khia some people hate you but, I think you're funny ass hell and. deserve you're own show where I can laugh at your a*s all day. Sorry, but the video gets a 3 on a scale of 1-10
Jesus Take The Wheel... Miss Cleo is BACK ... America's Favorite FAUX PSYCHIC is set to make her "comeback" of sorts back to television via the VH1's Surreal Life 7 which starts taping soon. No air date has been set but. in a my best "phoniest jamiacan accent" ... " CALL ME NOW". This will be some funny sh*t
Controversy! Controversy! Controvery! Omarosa appeared on that man William Wendy Show I mean Wendy Williams' Show to promote her new book drum role.... "The Bitch Switch" and, then William went on to say "Omarosa's the angry black woman that white people don't approve of because of her business tactics or some bullsh*t but, it's all PURE COMEDY.

A 68-year-old Tampa woman was arrested today for forcing a severely mentally handicapped man to perform oral sex on her, police say.
Luella McAdoo is a longtime family friend of the victim, according to Tampa police spokeswoman Andrea Davis. On April 5, the man’s mother left him in McAdoo’s care while she ran errands. When she came home at about 6 p.m., she found her son performing oral sex on McAdoo. The woman told McAdoo to go home, then she called police because her son, 34, does not have the ability to make a decision about sex on his own, Davis said.
The investigation, Davis said, was particularly challenging because of the victim’s mental condition and inability to communicate verbally. After the detectives investigated, according to Davis, they direct filed the case with the State Attorney’s Office, who filed charges.
McAdoo was arrested at her 953 Chestnut St. W home this morning by Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office deputies on a Tampa police warrant, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. She was charged with lewd or lascivious battery on an elderly or severely disabled person and is being held at the Orient Road Jail on $7,500 bond, according to jail records.
First, this some sick sh*t but, that's already been established. She don't have no TEETH in her mouth and, looks like death on a soda cracker but, she wants to force a mentally disabled man to perform oral sex on her OLD, WRINKLED, DIRTY,CRUSTY, SICK self. Then like most pedophiles she was a FAMILY FRIEND. Sad, Sad,Sad have fun in jail GRANNY.

Yesterday, on The View Whoppi and Elisabeth Hasselbeck got into a heated discussion over; The use of the N-Word.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck said
“We live in a world where pop culture uses that term and we’re trying to get to a place where we feel like we’re in the same place,” Elisabeth said. “How are we supposed to then…move forward if we keep using terms that bring back such pain?”
Whoppi responded by : “I can tell you how, here’s how we do it, you listen and say ‘Okay, this is how we’re using this word and this is why we do it,’ and you have to say, ‘I understand that, but let’s find a new way to move forward,’” Whoopi fired back.
“We don’t live in different worlds,” Elisabeth insisted, “We live in the same world.”
However, Whoopi fiercely disagreed with her co-host, saying, “We do live in different worlds, it's just that way. It is Elisabeth.”
My opinion on the matter is this Elisabeth you know nothing about the pain the N-Word brings back because, you're not an African American. You can "empathize" the pain but, you would never know the feeling of what african americans have gone and, are still going through even in 2008. If you haven't noticed racism is alive and well. We live in two different worlds because, we are still treated as second-class citizens and, still being enslaved except this time; we are being enslaved by our mind. Elisabeth, you may live in PLEASANTVILLE but, hey the rest of us are living in the REAL WORLD where it's hard, cruel and unjust.

In case you haven't heard; The Queen of 90s Music, Brandy Norwood, is back this has been four years since her critically acclaimed album "Afrodisiac". She has a new look, new sound, and new album her single drops 08.08.08 and, I can't wait because I have always been a fan of her's. I really enjoyed the "Afrodisiac" album and, her albums prior to it's release. The only thing that I didn't like that Brandy did was pretend she was "Married". When "mad day" came the "marriage" was later exposed as not of LEGAL STATUS but, a "ruse" to protect Brandy's image that she didn't want to be tampered but, your fans like me would'nt have cared If you wasn't married but, " to each its own"
I still got L O V E for you B R A N D Y

This is my favorite Hollywood Couple because, they have done so much stuff for my city,New Orleans, with the rebuilding effort. If I ever get a chance to meet them I will give them all the accolades because, they truly deserve it. I admire them because, they adopt children from the poorest of countries and, take care of them and not only that ;They use there money and valuable time to not just give back to my community but, communities and places all over the world. They definitely believe in the motto "It is better to give than to receive" they're definitely doing positive things and, putting all good karma in the world but, before I forget.
Congratulations on your new bundles of joy: A boy, Knox Leon .a little over 5 lbs, and girl Vivienne Marcheline 5 lbs even. She had the twins Satuday July 12th, 2008 around 8pm. The twins were also delivered via C-Section and, you already know the first pics of the twins will proably go for around MILLIONS OF DOLLARS but, when Angelina had daughter Shiloh ,in 2006, she gave half of the money to CHARITY so she is not MONEY HUNGRY like the rest of Hollywood who basically PIMP THERE CHILDREN'S BABY PICS.

So this week new teen mom Jamie Lynn Spears did a cover story with OK magazine and, talked about how much she loved motherhood but, did i forget she had to mention the $1 million payoff she received for the first pics of her baby. When she first came out and said she was pregnant Nickelodeon made a statement that they were going to " pull her show off the air" because, she wasn't being a "good example" to the young to pre-teen girls who watch her show but, later retracted and said "
"We respect Jamie Lynn's decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation. We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family and, our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn's well being"
.With that said Nickelodeon not only allowed for her to keep taping her show until she started "showing" signs of her pregnancy also they starting writing new episodes for the next season. If the shoe was on an African American's foot the actress would have recieved all kinds of bad publicity, Nickelodeon would have CANCELED the show, and the actress proably would be black listed for being a "teen parent who conceived a child out of WED-LOCK".
That's just the way of the world...

In this video, presidential nominee, John Mccain jokes about killing the Iranians and, then goes on to say its a "joke". This man must be a blood cousin of our RETARDED PRESIDENT BUSH because, he can really say some crazy yet inappropriate things at the wrong time. He really needs to give it up because, America doesn't need a George Bush pt. 3 to bring us down even more than we are already. This man is so old and senile and, then he was a P.O.W during the Vietnam War. With that being said he proably still has some "unconscious psychological issues" going on in his mind and, proably have America in war with the whole world and, the never ending war in Iraq will continue to go on 7 more years as America suffers.
