Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
So why do we talk so harshly towards one another? We describe
each other as being "n*ggas", "ratchet", "thug", "ghetto" and even "b*tches"!
Now some have embrace these words as being postive and use them
as a sense of power. But others use them to demean and control people.
Have we become to sensitive to how we conversate?
It has been reported in the Huffington Post,
An anonymous racially charged letter to a black student is fanning the
flames of racial hatred on the campus of the UCLA School of Law.
According to The Huffington Post, the note was sent to Alexis Gardner, a
UCLA student. It read, “Stop being a sensitive nigger.”
There is even notice in professional sports that words
need to be regulated. With the NFL considering a rule that would penalize
use of the N-word during games, Miami Heat center Chris Bosh was asked
if he would support a similar ban in the NBA.
It’s a very tough situation,” Bosh told reporters after Wednesday’s practice in preparation for Thursday’s game against the New York Knicks. “If that’s the case, they should ban all slurs. And I know it’s a big deal, because I think that word is used too much, especially in the mainstream nowadays
Well these words are causing much controversy. Even Twitter is buzzing. What is your thoughts? Should we turn our heads to how people communicate their words, or should we be more sensitive to what we say?
Why are Black folks killing themselves defending the N-word? Really? This is stupid to me. Flat out S-T-U-P-I-D.
According to a report on Eurweb.com,
*Minister Louis Farrakhan has seen enough of the U.S. legal system in light of the
acquittals of George Zimmerman and Michael Dunn.
So much so that he’s calling for black Americans to create and establish their
own court system based on the Bible and Quran. In Farrakhan’s eyes, the current
legal system is one that practices racial bias.
What are your thoughts? Wouldn't this be prejudice?
This leaves room for bias. However many view the United States Judiscial System
as being created strictly for "white america" to begin with.
According to Farrakhan,
“We want equal justice under the law,” the Nation of Islam leader said Sunday as
he addressed a crowd of 18,000 people at the Joe Louis Arena during the group’s
annual convention. “Our people can’t take much more. We have to have our own courts.”
Farrakhan’s comments come a week after Dunn was acquitted in the fatal shooting
of Jordan Davis. The jury in Florida man’s trial ultimately convicted him of attempted
murder for shooting at a car full of black teens over a dispute involving loud music.
Like Dunn, Zimmerman was acquitted in his case. The former neighborhood watchmen
generated headlines when he was acquitted last year for shooting Trayvon Martin.
The outcome of the tragedies is one of many that caused Farrakhan to ask the
convention crowd, “Has America been just to us?”
Rawstory.com reports the audience agreed with the outspoken leader ‘s opinion
that the nation had not. “If we retaliate, you can bring out your soldiers. We got
some, too,” Farrakhan said.
In addition to blasting the legal system, Farrakhan took aim at American Muslims
serving in the U.S. armed forces in the Middle East, saying they were “slaughtering
[their] own people for America” and “the European infidel.”
Long-standing claims of Farrakhan being ant-Semitic were also touched on during
the NOI leader’s speech as he denied the accusations.
“Did Jesus have a problem with the Jews of his day? He’s not a hater. Neither
am I,” Farrakhan stated as he claimed that “Satan is in control of Hollywood,”
TV, media and money, fields that frequently feature Jewish people in positions
of power. “I don’t hate Jewish people … what I hate is evil.”

But she is not taking her time in the spotlight lightly.
In every interview, from style to her words she holds
such poise and elegance.
But who is this beautiful lady? In a recent cover story for this week’s Entertainment Weekly, the Oscar nominee says she hopes her
success will inspire young girls.
I feel very fortunate to be in this position, and I know that it means more to people because I am an African and I am dark-skinned,” she says. In many ways me being on the scene is doing for little girls everywhere what Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg did for me.My world exploded by them being on screen. Hopefully I will inspire and be meaningful to other people.
Entertainment Weekly's cover feature of Nyong'o and Blanchett hits newsstands tomorrow, Feb. 21. source
Today, songstress Anita Wilson joined us
on the show to discuss her latest endeavours,
tour, and recent award nominations.
~With her debut project, Ms. Anita Wilson joins the rich musical heritage known
as the Chicago sound, while simultaneously heralding a new style in today’s
gospel music---Worship Soul. A worship leader and featured vocalist in the
award-winning ensemble Donald Lawrence & Company, she boldly takes
the solo stage with an album that is at once fiery and soulful, dynamic and meditative.
In less that one year of being released, Worship Soul received notable accolades
including being GRAMMY ® Nominated for Best Gospel Album (2013), 3 Stellar Award
Nominations for Urban Contemporary Single Performance, Praise and Worship CD of the
Year and Contemporary Female of the Year. As well it was recognized by The New York
Times' Ben Ratliff as one of 2012's Top Ten Albums.
From the high-church energy of “It’s Done,” and “He Shows Out,” to the passionate
reflection of “Speechless” and “Perfect Love Song,” the striking, 11-song collection
is evidence not merely of a great new talent, but of a seasoned minister. Worship
Soul beckons the listener to worship with ease, to enjoy a new revelation of God’s
presence. Anita co-produced the album with acclaimed songwriter/producer Rick Robinson.
Together they developed the material and recorded it live in Chicago at Fellowship
Missionary Baptist Church, the Southside church founded by Rev. Clay Evans.
Without question, the album’s crowning achievement is the mesmerizing ballad
“Speechless” (featured on WOW Gospel 2012: 30 of 2011's most popular gospel songs).
Written by Robinson, the thoughtful lyrics hold special meaning for Anita:
“So many scriptures speak of being in awe of God. He loves us so patiently,
knowing that we are a works in progress. Every time I minister that song, I
find myself looking up in the air and singing it to God as if He was right there.”
Powerful and moving from beginning to end, Ms. Anita Wilson’s debut collection
is refreshing and authentic. Worship Soul is a richly painted portrait of a truly
inspired artist, a deeply committed worshipper.
Her second album Vintage Soul is scheduled to release June of 2014. source
Is it just me or does it seem like more and more television shows are
portraying unstable relationships such as the women who
knowingly sleep with married men.
With popular tv shows like Scandal or Being Mary Jane, why is it that
we are making it "okay" to cheat if you are married??
When has adultery ever been acceptable?
There use to be a time when these type of men or women were shunned upon.
Now we're praising them?? what's really going on?
Statistics has proven thar realtionships favor men due to about
41,500,000 of the adult women in the United States are married.
But 21,327,000 others are women without men:
women who have never married (11,822,000); widows (8,047,000) and divorcees (1,458,000).
But does that make it ok to share a man if the wife didn't agree?
Let's use for example the new show from BET, Being Mary Jane.
According to BET.COM,
From the producers of the award-winning, record-breaking
BET comedy The Game and No. 1 box-office romantic comedy
Jumping the Broom comes the all new original series, Being
Mary Jane starring the gorgeous and talented Gabrielle Union.
This is a story to which millions of modern women will both
relate and respond. Mary Jane Paul is a one-woman show: a successful
TV news anchor and an entirely self-sufficient powerhouse who
remains devoted to a family that doesn’t share her motivation.
Intense drama and unforgettable moments unfold as Mary Jane
juggles her life, her relationships, her work and commitments to her family.
Being Mary Jane stars Gabrielle Union, Omari Hardwick and Lisa Vidal. The show creators, Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil now!
This show gives women who are involved in this type of behavior false
hope. Women's Daily magazine even stated that married men are usually
still in love with their wives when they get involved in an affair.
Typically the affair occurs because of the freedom of no responsibility.
Are we trying to say adultery is acceptable? What are we telling are kids about relationships? Marriage?
In late of last night's first episode of VH1's Basketball Wives Season 3,
new cast member British Williams discussed how she gives her man a pass to cheat!
Williams, who is engaged to oversees basketball superstar, Lorenzo Gordon, is establishing
herself in LA as a businesswoman and a future basketball wife.
In last nights episode starting around 8:30 mark,
Williams and season vet Jackie Christie were engaged in
a conversation about relationships, marriage
and cheating in the basketball world. Williams then proceeds to say that "as long as she doesn't know, she doesn't care what her man does".
What?? Why is this ok? The bible tells us in Proverbs 18:22,
He who finds a wife finds a good thing,
And obtains favor from the Lord.
What are your thoughts on this new age of couples? Do you think people
are forgetting the word of God and just making up their own rules??
What are your boundaries in your marriage?
What will you accept or not accept?

Former pro-football player Warrick Dunn
(pictured far right) brought excitement to the NFL as a running back for
the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons. Although considered
undersized for his position, Dunn was selected for three Pro Bowls and
was the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year in 1997 before retiring in 2008.
Continuing to work in service and furthering honoring the memory of
his mother, Dunn launched Betty’s Hope in 2012. The program helps
children who have lost a parent deal with the grief and depression similar
to what Dunn grappled with as a teenager when he and his five siblings
lost their mother to violent crime. Betty’s Hope services are free of charge
and include counseling, parent/caregiver support and training among other offerings.
Dunn published an autobiography, “Running for My Life,” in 2008.
The book detailed the struggles he faced in losing his mother at a young age,
and how he combated depression.
Dunn also recently completed his graduate studies,
obtaining his MBA from Emory University last year.

The King's Highway would like
to give our condolence to the family
and church members of Pastor Charles G Hayes.
Pastor Charles George Hayes, the third child and second son of Mamie Lee
and Will Hayes, was born December 10, 1937, in Verbena, Alabama. He
received his primary education at Siluria Jr. High School (Alabama) and
his secondary education at Prentice High School (Montevallo, Alabama).
He migrated to Chicago, Illinois in 1955 and became a Church Musician.
Pastor Hayes was ordained in the Ministry on August 31, 1957. He
organized Cosmopolitan Church of Prayer on April 28, 1959. Pastor
Hayes was under the leadership of many great pioneers such as
Prophet L. K. Johnson, Pastor Clarence Cobbs, Bishop Louis Boddie,
Bishop Anderson, Pastor Franklin, and others. Father of two, and grandfather,
Pastor Hayes became affectionately known as "Father Hayes" because of his
paternal qualities, his compassion, his concern for, and interest in people. Dr.
Hayes received his Doctorate Degree from Religious Science Institute in
December 1973 and received an Honorary Doctorate of Human Letters from St. Martins College and Seminary, September, 1974.
Dr. Hayes was currently one of the longest serving Pastor of one church in Chicago
for going on 55 years come April 2014. Cosmopolitan Church of Prayer has been
listed as a landmark church in the Chicago Area. Dr. Hayes was very passionate
with is ministry, not compromising with the devil and is known for speaking the truth
- declaring the word of God. He was very involved with every aspect of the church
for he put his all into this ministry. He was rooted and grounded in "traditional"
gospel and you could catch him singing, preaching, teaching and praying on any
given Sunday , adding his humorous touch but still telling it like it is. Dr. Hayes
was known for 'Making A Joyful Noise", leading such hits as He's Keeping Me,
I'll Never Forget, I Know The Lord Laid His Hands On Me, Before I Take It Back,
Everything's Alright, How I Got Over, My Lord and Master, and many, many more.
We know you are in glory and in a higher place in God. We love you Pastor Hayes.
This past Tuesday, Brandy rang in her 35th birthday with her family and friends.
But it all came to an emotional standstill when gospel singer Kim Burrell got
on the mic and started singing. Brandy clutched her pearls and began to cry
as Kim brought everybody to church with a beautiful song.
Afterward, Tyrese, who helped host the event, posted on his Instagram:
That moment when Kim Burrell walks out to surprise Brandy

The hair battle between hair weave, permanent straight hair and the
natural curls is not a new debate. Recently, there has been a noticable
increase of women choosing to go "natural" meaning no chemicals
or added hair pieces to their hair.
Two years ago, MN reported that relaxer kit sales dropped 17 percent between 2006 and 2011. New information from Mintel, a consumer trends firm, finds that relaxer sales has, again, taken a nosedive. In 2008, relaxer kit corporations reeled in a $206 million profit. In 2011, their revenue dwindled down to $179 million — a 15 percent decrease. This year, Mintel expects profits to plunge down to $152 million. - See more at: http://madamenoire.com/319957/afro-hurting-businesses-relaxer-sales-plummeting/#sthash.gItOQB7S.dpuf

When it comes to personal style any person, man or woman,
should have the right to do whatever makes them confident.
However it can be quite difficult to smile with grace in your style
if you are constantly criticized for it even fired!
Take for example the recent criticism of sports news reporter Pam Oliver during her Super Bowl coverage. Numerous tweets, instagram memes and Facebook post taunted her about
how badly her hairstyle was.
Someone even made a parody account
just for her wig! No one acknowleged that this woman
is reporting sports stats and not fashion and is great at her career.
Also what about meteoroligist Rhonda Lee who was recently fired from KTBS 3 News, an ABC affiliate in Shreveport, La.
After comments she made on Facebook responding to
viewers of the news station about her hair,
the company fired her claiming "she was fired for violating its social media policy".
It has been proven that your do not have to have weave to have long hair.
The real life Rapunzel Asha Mandela, a resident of Atlanta became famous for
holding the record as having the longest stand of locs at 55 feat long!
So whether naturally or enhanced by weave a woman's confidence
should be because of what's God is doing on the inside not the outside.
Why is it so much pressure in the world for women, especially
African American women to have longer or staighter hair?
Give us your thoughts.

On this day in 1995, in Florida teen Trayvon Martin was born to parents
Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin would have been 19.
Martin, who had no criminal record when he was shot at 17 was a
baby faced teen who attended public schools in Florida,
including the Dr. Michael M. Krop High School in Miami Gardens.
Martin was killed by neighborhood watch member George Zimmerman
on February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida. Zimmerman's arrest
sparked a national debate over racial profiling and the role of
armed neighborhood watch members in law enforcement.
On July 13, 2013, a jury acquitted Zimmerman of murder.
Justice needs to be served. We are praying for the parents who are still grieving.
A man kills one of our black boys and we make him a celebrity?
What's really going on? TMZ is now reporting that George Zimmerman is now participating
in a "celebrity boxing match" and guess who his opponent will be???
Rapper DMX!The report is as follows:
Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman tells us, DMX
was selected out of 15,000 applicants … all of whom
wanted a piece of Zimmerman in the ring after he
issued the open challenge to fight anyone willing to take him. As we first reported, DMX promised to massacre
Zimmerman in the ring if he got the chance.
Zimmerman as reported has been training pretty hard for months
and he’s only 30 years old. DMX is 43. The boxing match will be 3 rounds.
The date, time, and location of the fight will be announced at a news
conference next Wednesday.
What are your thoughts? How can we as a community sit here
and allow a man who got away with murder continue to be placed in the media?
This man is literally laughging in our faces! To
create a boxing match base off of a MURDER is completely disrespectful
to the Martin family but most importantly to any black person.
To me, it looks like we are ALLOWING this to happen to us as a people.
We need to boycott this fight but most importantly we need to STOP giving this man attention.
The more attention we give this man, the more we say "It's ok to kill our children".
Talk about giving honor to God!
Los Angelos, CA resisdent James Ward, whose family faced homelessness,
was able to crowd source the $12,000 he needed to attend Howard University this fall.
Ward, 19, and his family have dealt with homelessness for four years,
bouncing between shelters and the street in L.A.’s Skid Row. Jessica Sutherland,
a digital media producer who had also been homeless as a child, found
out that Ward had been accepted to Howard and had received scholarships but still need $12,000 to cover
costs for a full year.
Sutherland set up a site, Homeless to Howard, to raise money from Ward and the money began pouring in from celebrities like Common and regular folks.
“It’s surreal. I can’t believe after everything that’s happened I’m
going to be leaving to attend Howard,” Ward told The Huffington
Post last fall.
“I would’ve never thought that something we started just a couple
of days ago would’ve turned out to become this massive,” Ward said.
“However, it makes me feel very happy because I know that although
the world may seem like a harsh and cold place, there are some
people out there that care and want to give to those in need.”
Last night's BIG GAME was like pulling off your own nails
as the Seattle Seahawks whipped the feild with the Denver Broncos
winning 43 to 8 at MetLife Stadium last night.
This game made numerous historic moments for National
Football League history, one being that this is the second largest
blowout between a team; the first being the 49ers (55)
versus Broncos (10) back in 1990. source
Also just in time for Black History Month, Seattle Seahawks
quarterback Russell Wilson can now go down in the record
books as the SECOND quarterback in American history to
win a Super Bowl ring. Congratulations are in order.
Even with all the excitement, Russell Wilson didn't forget about the one who
brought him to the place he is today: God.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7 NIV)
Everybody knows that one thing you can't mess with on
Twitter is Jesus, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce without millions
of raging fans blowing up your mentions.
This year, the Half Time show grooved with the funk of Bruno Mars
mashed up with some rock and headbanging from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Athough Byron Cage didn't know of Bruno Mars' music,
he seemed to enjoy what he saw.
Based on what I saw tonight, I believe I would give Bruno Mar's music a chance. He is very talented. True musician.
Well we can see Mr. Cage has never heard a Bruno Mars lyric, such as "Locked Out of Heaven"'s line "But swimming in your water* is something spiritual
Ooh! I'm born again every time you spend the night
WHOA!! A Twitter follower catch the conversation and also let Cage know.
@Rejoice1023@RealByronCage It may not be obvious, but check out the lyrics to 'Locked out of Heaven' & see how asleep the church really is.
