LaTisha Nixon questions whether or not Ed Buck’s political connections, race and wealth have been an influencing factor with law enforcement officials.
Dear Harriet Christian,
You don’t know me, but I know you.
I wanted to take the time to reach out to you–one Democrat to another–to offer you a one-way plane ticket, coach fare, out of America before that ‘inadequate Black man’ you hate so much takes the official oath of office and becomes our 44th president.
I just thought it better to get all of the haters on their way before the real party begins.
So hit me up Harriet and you can be on your way…
The push has been led largely by black community leaders who say the number of African Americans who remain stripped of their voting rights has become an indefensible civil rights issue. Even with the new laws, about 1 in 8 black men is barred from voting because of criminal convictions, advocacy groups say.
Okay so while I’m still recovering from my birthday celebration…I’m back in action. The first order of business of the day…shout outs.
Mad thanks to my girl Choklate for making it hot and keeping it real. It doesn’t get much better than having one of your favorite singers perform live on your birthday! Also, I have to give love to Q. Dixon for performing one of my favorite songs by her, “Get It Together.” Love you. DJ Spark, what can I say? We’ve come a long ways. Michelle and Roz, as always thanks for being the hostesses with the mostesses, lol. Good looking out Shon and Chris on the photos, cause’ a girl was on one and wasn’t even thinking about it. Pam and Roxann, thanks for all of your help. To all my friends and fam that helped me celebrate Tuesday night…a very big thank you. Thank you for all of the emails and bday text messages!!!!
Yep, that pretty much sums it up for me. You had Morehouse vs. Prairie View A&M, thousands of Black people representing their college/university, the fraternities, the sororities, thousands of students on the verge of making their decision on which HBCU to attend, local high school bands, drill teams, and cheerleaders, and L.A.’s signature beautiful sunny weather…what more could you ask for? Well–I guess for the football fans, the fact that there was an actual game played was important. For me–the the icing on the cake was one of my favorite singers N’Dambi performed live along with Angie Stone, Anthony and Tarsha Hamilton, and Lalah Hathaway. Like I said, it was on and crackin…Here’s glimpse of what you missed…enjoy! Until next year…
Kudos to my folks Kevin, Isidra, and everyone who had a hand in putting on this event. From the parking lot attendees to the sponsors, to the young men and women who gave so much on the field for the crowd while representing their university.
Extra special kudos to my godson Chris from Dorsey High School and Briana from Culver City High School for being chosen as this year’s Farmer’s Angel City Classic King and Queen in addition to winning a $5,000 scholarship to the school (hopefully a HBCU) of their choice.
Your girl got up at the crack of dawn to check out Morehouse at the Los Angeles Coliseum in a preview for tomorrow’s Angel City Classic where they will square off against Prarieview.
If you’re in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is where it’s going down tomorrow. Don’t forget N’Dambi, LalaHathaway, Angie Stone, and Anthony and Tarsha Hamilton will all be performing live!
Oh and if you’re a SoCal resident you can register to win a BMW which will be given away during halftime tomorrow. Register online at www.angelcityclassic.com.
