Joseph went shopping with his three bi-racial daughters at a Woodbridge, Virginia, Walmart and was mistaken for their possible abductor.
*Have you ever been shopping and noticed children walking with someone that it seems they shouldn’t be?
For instance, an adult that is a different race than the child? Well, with all of the abductions we’ve seen lately, it seems that folks are taking Charles Ramsey’s advice and being proactive. Getting some “cajones!”
It definitely takes cajones to walk up to a man with his daughters and ask him what he’s doing with them.
A Woodbridge, Virginia, Walmart sent police officers after Joseph, a white man that had been shopping with his three biracial daughters.
His wife, Keana, is black woman who was outraged once police showed up on their doorstep asking questions about why Joseph was with the girls, according to Fox 5 D.C.
*When I graduated from college the first time followed my dreams and became a newspaper and television news reporter. I traveled across the country covering stories, one of the most memorable was when I met Nelson Mandela during his visit to the United States after his release from a South African prison.
When I graduated from college the second time my dreams led me to Washington, D.C. where I worked on Capitol Hill, attended presidential inaugurations and reported on the State of the Union Address. When I got the chance to produce programming at an independent television station in Virginia I jumped at the chance. And when Morgan State University in Baltimore had an opening I became Professor Rivers in the Department of Communications.
As a college professor I joined a committee to promote a student exchange program between the United States and Vietnam. So I traveled to Hawaii, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore as part of the Fulbright-Hays Fellowship program. We visited the My-Lai (massacre) Village, the border between North and South Korea known as the 38th Parallel, lo Chi Minn’s Mausoleum and the Cu chi tunnels of Saigon.
I’ve done door-to-door sales, sold cars, owned a marketing company and owned rental properties from Maryland to North Carolina. Last year I started doing stand-up comedy at local clubs and I created a production company with a business partner to produce programming for women and families. We created a reality show, Women Pastors – Ladies In the Pulpit. Now were pitching it to networks with other shows we’ve created
When I applied to become a flight attendant a few years ago they weren’t hiring. So I became an airline baggage handler instead. And when American Airlines starting hiring flight attendants last fall I applied along with 20,000 other people. Of the 20,000 applicants only 2,000 have been chosen so far. I am one of the 2,000. After 8 ½ weeks of training, I know everything except how to fix the plane and how to fly it. I can evacuate an aircraft in record time and save a life 30,000 feet in the air. If all you know about flight attendants is they serve food and drinks, your flights have been uneventful – and that’s a good thing. I love to travel. So I know I’m going to enjoy this job! No matter how far my travels take me I promise to take you with me, because writing and producing are my passion.
