Tag archive for ‘confession’
We’ve all heard about the Trayvon Martin case. We’ve thrown our hoodies on and boycotted around cities, posted our opinions (good and bad) all over the FB and Twitter stratosphere. We have also become fully aware of the law Governor Jeb Bush passed called ‘stand your ground’. I guess with all of the attention this case is getting law enforcement are not taking any chances in Florida. This story however is totally different than the Trayvon case and the outcome is both different and outrageous!
Currently sitting in jail is a beautiful black woman named Marissa Alexander. Why? Because Ms. Alexander was in an abusive relationship for several years. On several occasions her husband was arrested. Once in November of 2010 for domestic abuse which by the way he admitted under oath. Her confession that she feared for her life was blatantly ignored by the judicial system. She is in Pretrial Detention Facility (in Florida the same state with the Stand Your Ground law which has protected George Zimmerman all this time mind you) for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent (‘without’ being the keyword here) to harm. She could face damn near 20 years for standing her ground from this abusive man charging at her in her own home! She didn’t even aim at him she pointed it upward and shot a warning shot. This fool went straight to the police like a little bitch and told them that his wife tried to shoot him. Any idiot could see the bullet hole in the ceiling; she would seriously have to be a horrible shooter if all she could hit was the ceiling. Oh and did I mention that she is legally licensed to have her gun?
This disgusts (not shock) me that our judicial system is so messed up that the people who this law was specifically passed for are the guilty party while the idiots that need to rot in hell get to roam the streets with no consequences for their ignorant behaviors. I truly believe that hell is earth because the devil has way too much power over the society.
Please, please, please go to this sista’s website. Write a letter to the judge who feels she needs to continue being abused by not only her husband but by her peers! Let them know this is an injustice and that this woman needs to be released back to the three children she was raising. We need to make just as much noise as we have for Trayvon and his parents. So share this, retweet it, put it all over blogs, websites, etc.
I wonder since the judge is such an ass he did he release her children to the abusive husband. I wouldn’t put it passed him.
Peace and luv!

I don’t understand why everybody is hatin’ on poor Rhianna. Whitney Houston’s mama Cissy Houston caught wind of a confession Rhianna made recently. Rhianna was asked about Whitney Houston and she admitted to Ms. Houston being one of her idols (who doesn’t think of her like that? She’s influenced so many in the music game) so the person asking the questions asked her if she would play Whitney Houston if asked. Innocently Rhianna gave an enthusiastic ‘of course’ not thinking that her answer would spark Cissy to have serious problem with it.
Cissy Houston with no hesitation responded with, “Over my dead body!” Wow those are some strong words. Is it because of the drug connection? No disrespect to Ms. Cissy Houston but her daughter was an addict. That was her reality. It shouldn’t define who she was because she has contributed so much however it appears that way if you are looking at it from our society’s perspective. And anyway Rhianna just smokes weed not coke or prescription pills. As a mother myself Cissy has the right to deny anyone to play her daughter but honestly I don’t see anything wrong with this girl playing her but that’s just me.
Is Cissy being irrational? Is she in denial of what her daughter was into? Who would be the perfect person and should that person be able to ‘sang’? Last year Aretha Franklin shut down Queen Latifah playing her in her biopic (is it because of her being a lesbian?) instead she wants Halle Berry. WTF? Why? Looking back on photos of Aretha there is absolutely no resemblance between the two, makeup wouldn’t be able to make that happen. I think that ‘secret’ surgery she had got rid of her sight. She’s just a tad bit delusional.
Peace and luv!
