It’s been a slow news week due to everything being all Lebron, all the time but I did find a few articles that stuck out to me.
My first article comes from The Post and Courier, Charleston’s local newspaper. It involves a little boy who “went missing” on Tuesday. Rodricus Williams, the toddler was reported last seen at the Battery in downtown Charleston but this turned out false. Rodricus’ father, Roger was supposed to give the boy to his mother when the call reporting Rodricus missing was made. Roger Williams was arrested on several non-related warrants along with his girlfriend. Peep the story in the link below for all of the details. What the hell is wrong with people? The father and girlfriend have now been charged with homicide by child abuse.****
In all my quasi-liberal leanings I feel people who pull crap like this (allegedly)should get sent to Gitmo if found guilty. Be sure to checkout the comment section to see if what I said in yesterday’s post holds true.
The next two articles comes from www.theroot.com. In the wake of all the Fourth of July frivolity this past weekend, these articles ask two legit questions. The first deals with blacks, the meaning of the Fourth of July, and patriotism to us. The second link asks the question should African-Americans exercise their Second amendment rights more. Being the Purveyor of All Things That go Boom that I am and as much as I like shooting and shoot things I still think we should have stronger gun laws. To paraphrase Black Tony Blair’s words “I just don’t feel comfortable with random ****** having Barrets.” Well except for Taraji Henson in Smoking Aces because that was kinda hot.
Right – Wingers Aren’t The Only Patriots
It’s Time for African-Americans to Lock and Load
From time to time I, like many of my countrymen like to bitch and moan about my situation in life. This is another one of those inalienable rights that we just celebrated on Sunday. Why we bitch and moan can stem from several factors like where we work, live, or how much money we have. I know unhappiness and poverty (Which aren’t synonymous by the way.) is a relative situation, checkout this photo spread from Foreign Policy. It’s called “What Hunger Looks Like.” and I realize that I will never ever have to know what the subjects of the photos go through on a day-to-day basis and I’m thankful for that.
In light of all of this basketball talk that’s been dominating the sports head lines for the last month or so here are some football articles.
I hate to say this but the Hurricanes are becoming dangerous again.
JaMarcus, JaMarcus, JaMarcus
Here’s an article from the Raider cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who next to Tim Brown is the most un Raider like Raider ever. He’s giving advice to rookies about adjusting to life in the NFL.
Thanks all I’ve got this week. Feel free to add links of your own and tell us what they are about. Stay out of the street.
Vaya con Dios.
