A little positivity is always a breath of fresh air. The Jackie Robinson West All-Stars have given the Windy City another reason to be proud while raising morale in the community at a time when people are rioting in frustration over the death of Michael Brown.
TheGrio.com reports that the all-black team has secured a spot at the Little League World Series. The team has grabbed a lot of attention because they don’t look like the typical little league roster, and David James of Major League Baseball’s Reviving Baseball In Inner Cities program said the All-Stars have people in the pros excited!
“All of us at MLB are talking about that team,” he said. “It’s really good for the game.

August 18, 2014, Atlanta, GA– Not another reality TV show!!!! No matter what the masses say somebody’s watching it (me tonight). VH1 premiered their new reality TV show “Atlanta Exes” featuring some of our favorites celebrity’s ex-wives. For the record, at least the women casted were actually wives! I digress…
Kevin Hart’s ex-spouse, Torrei Hart, is one of the leading ladies featured on the show.
Well, well… This is my best illustration of what Kevin Hart was probably thinking:
Caption This: Show Airs..
Kevin: Oh, you’re not about to taint my image! ***Proposes to girlfriend
The show is just getting started, but something tells me there’s more to this story.. What do you think?
The #Ferguson story has me feeling a certain type of way, and this article helps explain what that feeling is..

I didn’t wear a hoodie for Trayvon. I didn’t march to Save Our Girls. And I didn’t March for Mike Brown and peace in Ferguson. It’s not that I don’t believe in the causes and I don’t want things to change, it’s that I’m not convinced marching in 2014 is really going to make a difference.
This isn’t 1960 when marching peacefully actually evoked change. Or when the act of sitting in a restaurant sparked a nationwide movement that changed some things. It’s 2014 where people create hashtag campaigns and funky…

August 8, 2014– Atlanta, GA– During my undergraduate years, I studied about African-American women in media. There is so much discourse surrounding the art of communication as it relates to black women in media. Since I knew I would become apart of this highly televised group, I found it quite appropriate to learn more about the area or study.
In 2010, I took a course that dived into how black women’s sexuality portrayed in media. At that time, I was introduced to the infamous Spike Lee joint, “She’s Gotta Have It.”
This movie focuses on the lead character, Nola Darling, and her simultaneous relationship with three different men. Nola is a confident, dark-skinned black woman who knows what she wants. Although many argue the movie is somewhat risqué because of her bold sexual desires… The movie is truly a classic.
I enjoyed watching Nola’s character as she continued to break every barrier against how women are “supposed” to be in relationships. She has complete control over all three men she has relations with. The title “She’s Gotta Have It,” refers to a black woman who literally “has to have it.”
If you’ve never seen the movie for yourself, I encourage you to check it out.
Happy Anniversary Nola Darling!
