Unidentified British woman screams at Nigerian student because she’s seeking medical care.
*Most racists would tell you they believe that they are entitled to services that others should either wait in line behind them to receive or not receive them at all.
And some are quite vocal and/or active with their beliefs.
According to the Daily Mail, in Suffolk, England, an unidentified British woman walked over to Nigerian student Gina Thompson, 23, and her 21-year-old Spanish friend in the emergency room at Ipswich Hospital and asked them where they were from.
She didn’t seem to be wrapped too tight when she asked, so Thompson was right to ask her, “Why does it matter where I’m from?” That’s right girl! Don’t talk to strangers. Especially those from the loony bin.
*Usher just scored his fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart as “Looking 4 Myself” debuts atop the list with 128,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan, but it’s his smallest first-week sales for a regular studio album since 1997′s “My Way” bowed with 67,000.
His last studio effort, 2010′s “Raymond v Raymond,” opened at No. 1 with 329,000.
The new album was ushered in by its lead single “Climax,” which is in its ninth straight week at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Of Usher’s 12 No. 1s on the R&B/Hip-Hop tally, only one has spent more weeks at No. 1: “You Make Me Wanna . . .” (with 11).
On the Pop Songs airplay chart, the album’s top 40-focused single “Scream” rises 11-10, having slipped 10-11 last week. On the all-format Billboard Hot 100 chart, “Scream” slipped 13-14 last week.
The latest game in the dance series from Harmonix Music Systems and Microsoft Studios includes today’s music and classic hits such as “The Hustle,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
As part of the game, Usher choreographed dance routines to his “Scream” and “OMG,” and participated in a motion capture shoot to bring the moves to the game.
“Here was an opportunity to get closer to my fans,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “This was a chance to teach them how to dance in a very fun and recreational way.”
Explaining that this was his first experience with motion capture, he added, “It’s really cool to see how this works and how much detail goes into it… I really think the technology is amazing, to be able to track your entire body. I was really blown away. I had to be a part of this.”
He views these capabilities as a “wave of the future … Kinect allows you to be a part of it.”
Usher’s upcoming album, “Looking 4 Myself,” is due on June 12.
