Civil Rights Activists ‘Forgive’ White Officer Who Threw ASU Professor to Ground

arizona state professor ersula ore & officer stewart ferrin

*“People make mistakes,” said Phoenix community activist Renee Huff. “By God, we need to be able to forgive people.”

The verdict is in. Black activists have chosen to forgive officer Stewart Ferrin (pictured above),  whose behavior was deemed ‘not inappropriate’ even after footage from his dashcam showed him forcing Arizona State University professor Dr. Ersula Ore down on the hood, before throwing her to the ground, because she crossed a campus street where construction was taking place.

The civil rights officers, who decided to have a “Lemonade Summit” with the officer, had at first threatened to march on campus if the officer ended up being reinstated. But after the meeting where they say they got to know the officer, the whole smell of the situation changed.

Bruce Jenner Fixin’ to Open Up to Media on His Male to Female Transition

*Hey, transitions are expensive, no doubt.

And Bruce Jenner was probably holding out for an acceptable number of zero’s to talk about his journey from being Kris Jenner‘s now ex-husband, the Khardashian siblings stepfather and biological dad to some, to becoming a full-blown woman…publicly.

Whoo, the interview where Jenner is reportedly preparing to discuss his “wish to transition from male to female,” with Us Weekly should be a real doozy. Reports claim he has already “taped a major sit-down interview.”

Sidebar: Does anyone else feel that the one they should be talking to is Kris? I mean, how on earth does she seriously deal with her ex-husband becoming a woman?

Are You Marriage Material? (Nope!) … Successful Wife, Mother, Entrepreneur Says Here’s Why

vibevixen-black-woman-thinking

*There’s a lot of single African American women out there, right? That’s a rhetorical question. We already know the answer. So when someone who has been married for a decade, has nurtured amazing children, is recognized as a highly educated professor and successful entrepreneur, and on top of all that, held the title that showed her as representative for an entire country, you’d at least listen when she says this is how you know you’re not marriage material, right?

Right.

Nomalanga Mhlauli-Moses, a lifestyle expert and founder of HealthyBlackWoman.com created this (bolded) list to show women how to build and maintain healthy relationships. It’s food for thought.

*OK, either this sheriff is looking for some attention; has lost his mind or has dunked too many donuts in his coffee.

He actually (and probably with a straight face) claims that when it comes to African American men being gunned down by the cops – its not the cops who you should blame, but the women who raised them.

His name is David Clarke, and he serves as sheriff of Milwaukee County in Wisconsin. On Tuesday he said that the NAACP is wrong to blame police officers, when they should be looking a lot closer to home.

Mom, are you listening?

Watch: ‘We’re Listening, Message Received’ GoDaddy Pulls Super Bowl ‘Puppy Ad’ Amidst Animal Lovers’ Disgust

*Hey, humans might still need a little work when it comes to taking care of each other, but mess with our animal kingdom, and you’re in trouble.

The big daddy of website hosting,  GoDaddy.com, found this out the hard way when they put up their big Super Bowl ad to test the waters. After much ado about something from animal rights groups and dog lovers they’ve vowed not to air the ad during the big game on Sunday.

The ad, “Journey Home,” mocked Budweiser’s highly anticipated “Lost Dog” Super Bowl ad that the beer label has been teasing — which, in turn, is a sequel to its wildly popular 2014 Super Bowl ad “Puppy Love.”
