This video might be quite painful to watch, as it shows a father beating his two daughters with a cable cord. The sound of the girls screaming as they lay helplessly on the ground is sickening.
The reason for the beating is because the girls allegedly posted a “twerking” video on Facebook.
Jada Pinkett-Smith wrote an open discussion on her Facebook page, wondering should black magazines like Essence or Ebony, should place white women on the covers.
Read what she has to say below, then i’ll give my two cents…
Russell Simmons has written a letter to the Universoul Circus, asking them to release “Nosey” the elephant because of animal abuse. Simmons even compared the treatment of the elephant to African-American slavery.
Check out the letter below:
As a strong supporter of African-American arts, I am extremely pleased that UniverSoul Circus has developed a unique model with fascinating human performers. I am disappointed, however, to learn that someone at UniverSoul has hired a known violator of federal law and someone who has shown utter disregard for animal welfare. I am referring, of course, to Hugo Liebel and his appalling treatment of an elephant named Nosey.
Mr. Liebel is currently facing nearly three dozen charges for violations of the minimal standards of the federal law regarding animal care, most of them relating to Nosey. She has repeatedly been kept in chains so tight that she could barely move, and Liebel has been cited for not providing her with the medical care she needs.
Like our forefathers, Nosey was ripped from her rightful home in Africa, taken from her family, shipped here and forced to work for the rest of her life. A former employee of Liebel’s admitted that a trainer beat Nosey while she was chained by all four legs, and encouraged others to participate with sledge hammers and shovels. During the shows, Nosey is made to get down all fours and crawl towards her “master.” How can her life be construed as anything but bondage and servitude and a slap in the face to all values most of us hold dear?
Children who attend the UniverSoul Circus surely don’t want to, and shouldn’t, see beaten animals in chains. They come to see vibrant human performers who amaze and entertain and to feel as if they are part of the show. I hope you will open your heart to see the truth and decide you want your vision and creation – the UniverSoul Circus – to be one of integrity and principle. I know you can cancel this sad act, and I hope you will.

During an interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1, Jermaine Dupri talked about his relationship with Kandi of Xscape. The group had issues back in the day with Kandi always singing lead & some think it’s because the two were sleeping together. JD says they never had sex.
Tamar Braxton stopped by BET’s 106 & Park the other night, revealing what i think might may be a “Baby Bump”.
Tamar is used to wearing tight/revealing ensembles, but for this appearance her outfit was very loose fitting. According to multiple sources, her stylist was constantly adjusting the outfit to avoid revealing the bump.
