The 3 Women Accused in L.A. Boy’s Torture Plead Not Guilty

Starkeisha Brown, 24, and her live-in girlfriend, Krystal Denise Matthews, 21, as well as La Tanya Monikue Jones, 26, were back in court today in Compton on charges of stemming from allegations that they subjected a 5-year-old boy to sustained and “unbearable” abuse and conspired to cover it up.

All three please not guilty.

In watching the local news coverage of today’s court proceedings, I noticed that more than a few of the mainstream media reports have shifted from referring to Krystal as Starkeisha’s girlfriend to now labeling her as “a roommate.”

I’m not sure what that’s all about.

The Bottom Line: Message to James Kirchick—Tell Me How My Ass Tastes

Okay, so I finally got around to reading this article in response to my position on gay marriage in California and the lack of melanin in the coverage of said marriages written by James Kirchick (who I have never heard of before in my life). After reading James article, “Gay Marriage Isn’t Racist,” I want to thank James for proving that reading is not only fundamental for Blacks but for whites as well.
