Here is our First look at the made for TV Movie highlighting the life and times of one of the most successful female R&B Groups in History. It's been 11 years since Left Eye's passing and I am excited to see another depiction of her besides the one of her last days on this earth in her VH1 documentary. TLC brought us undeniable hits like "No Scrubs" "Waterfalls" and "Creep". Having been a fan since their first single and video "What about your friends" hit the air waves I was thrilled to hear about this project. Drew Sidora, KeKe Palmer and Lil Mama play the Grammy Award winning group and they are tough shoes to fill. Making it's debut this fall, October to be exact the Biopic is sure to create buzz and maybe a new TLC album? - Nia Boom
I am so proud of our president for finally speaking up. The Trayvon Martin trial was not about race, it was about justice. It's about the truth and the Truth is that as African Americans we face discrimination that other races don't. We are followed in stores and in the streets just because of the color of our skin; and a disease we have all suffered from at one point in our lives and that is stereotyping. The bottom line is we are all human, period. We all want the same things out of life and should have equal opportunity to obtain them. NO Justice NO Peace...

After a six-woman jury cleared Zimmerman of all charges, a number of black organizations, including the NAACP, called on the Department of Justice to consider the case under federal hate crime rules.
Attorney General Eric Holder appeared before the NAACP’s annual meeting in Florida earlier this week and spoke out against the state’s Stand Your Ground laws that allows an individual to use deadly force if they fear for their lives. Although Stand Your Ground was not used in the Zimmerman defense, Florida police initially said they could not arrest him because of such state laws.
“It’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense,” Holder said.
Trayvon Martin’s parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, released a statement saying they were “deeply honored and moved that President Obama took the time to speak publicly and at length about our son, Trayvon. The President’s comments give us great strength at this time. We are thankful for President Obama’s and Michelle’s prayers, and we ask for your prayers as well as we continue to move forward.”
We know that the death of our son Trayvon, the trial and the not guilty verdict have been deeply painful and difficult for many people. We know our family has become a conduit for people to talk about race in America and to try and talk about the difficult issues that we need to bring into the light in order to become a better people.
What touches people is that our son, Trayvon Benjamin Martin, could have been their son. President Obama sees himself in Trayvon and identifies with him. This is a beautiful tribute to our boy.
Trayvon’s life was cut short, but we hope that his legacy will make our communities a better place for generations to come. We applaud the President’s call to action to bring communities together to encourage an open and difficult dialogue. Our family is committed to this dialogue through the work of the Trayvon Martin Foundation.
We seek a future when a child can walk down the street and not worry that others see him as dangerous because of the color of his skin or the clothes on his back. We seek a future where our children can grow up and become the people God intended them to be.
Obama acknowledged on Friday that “each successive generation seems to be making progress in changing attitudes when it comes to race.” But, he added, “It doesn’t mean that racism is eliminated.”
Willow Smith is receiving quite a bit of backlash for her new video "Summer Fling" where she talks about loving a boy and enjoying the summer. When I first started watching I was nervous because the blogs were going crazy but after a couple seconds I realized this is innocent. Yes the other girls in the video look too grown to be hanging out with Willow, that hair is questionable and I could do without that british accent but over all it wasn't bad. Looks like kids just having fun. Don't act like you wasn't 12 once and got those "feelings" Only for the summer but we do it anyways....
