*So many of us ask if the ill race-relations in this country will ever be a thing of the past. I’d like to think so, but with stories like this, I know its going to take a l-o-n-g time.
When “Daddy Blogger” Doyin Richards posted a picture of himself fixing his young daughter’s hair, he was proudly and playfully letting his wife (who had said it was a task he couldn’t do) know that she was wrong!
Richards spends a lot of time rejoicing in fatherhood, and blogs about it on his website, Daddy Doin’ Work: Adventures of a First-Time Father Raising His Daughters.

*Can we be real for a moment?
No matter what form of prayer you practice, or who you pray it to, this is the type of news that will test you.
*When Jackie Turner, a junior at William Jessup University near Sacramento was asked by a reporter to recall some of the pleasant memories of her childhood, she paused for a long time, then said, “I remember getting locked up and locked in rooms. And I remember getting beatings for stealing food.”
Jackie maintains straight As, has good friends and a really big heart. She works part-time as a tutor and eventually wants a career helping troubled kids. To some that might look like a person with few problems.
Not so for Jackie, especially this time of year.

*The Jackson Brothers prove that in some cases the show must go on.
Katherine Jackson and the family are involved with AEG Live in a wrongful death lawsuit. The trial is taking place in downtown Los Angeles.
In the meantime, just a couple blocks away, Michael Jackson’s brothers are scheduled to perform at the Staples Center on June 30, reports according to showbiz 411. The show has an onslaught of performers, some with their own scandals including R. Kelly and the notorious Bobby Brown.
The Jacksons are set to do a show at the Staples Center, the same venue where their brother Michael was eulogized during a huge memorial service on July 7, 2009, close to four years from the date of his death.
AEG produced the highly broadcasted Michael Jackson memorial live from the Staples Center. Now Jackson’s brothers are actually working for the promoters while going against them in trial and awaiting a decision that they hope will result in a payout. According to a lawyer of the Jackson family, the brothers have no other choice. He said that AEG was the only promoter in the world. He has obviously never heard of Live Nation or the countless other concert promoters.
With the ongoing trial and bad blood between the Jackson’s and AEG, one would have to question the boys morality and family values. Jermaine, Marlon, Tito and Jackie don’t seem to have too much of problem with it or at least not one big enough to stop them from performing and working for their current opponent in the court room.
Michael Jackson’s brothers obviously have no problem with carrying on with what some might call a tacky display and lack of loyalty. “Who’s bad?” Well it looks like they’ve answered that question for us.
Pamela and Joe Bryant
*Oh dang! Trouble in paradise for Kobe Bryant … again.
The Lakers superstar guard is having some family drama. And that’s an understatement.
His parents are calling him a liar and have totally disowned him after he accused his mom of stealing millions of dollars of his basketball memorabilia and later putting it up for auction, says TMZ.
It’s so bad that both his father and mom (Joe and Pamela Bryant) have filed sworn declarations in the legal dispute between Kobe and Goldin Auctions.
And according to the docs, Goldin claims that Kobe willingly gave the items in question to his mom, so it’s her right to sell them.
Kobe’s grandma even filed a legal declaration in support of Pamela.
But check this out. Kobe’s sister, Sharia Washington, filed a legal declaration claiming her mother has been conspiring to sell her bro’s things for years, saying the family would get a lot of cash for it.
By the way, Kobe countersued and is asking Goldin to return the items. Besides, he says his mother stole the items from his house. Dang!
Bottom Line: A judge blocked the auction … for now.
*NBA Star Dwight Howard told the media that he wants to use his NBA career to raise the name of God within the league and throughout the world; however, the 27-year-old athlete’s actions are contradictory of his words, says Christian News.
But some Christian critics don’t think he should be the example for the faith because he’s not been living the example he’s trying to set.
Reports recently emerged, claiming he’s got five babies with five different women who he’s not been married to. Maybe that’s not the best look for a Jesus preaching man.
But should that stop him from sharing his faith with the world, using his fame as a platform?
