Meteorologist Rhonda Lee from the ABC affiliate KTBS in Shreveport, La, was fired for defending her afro in a Facebook comment. A viewer questioned whether or not Lee should be able to wear the short afro, suggesting that she should wear a wig instead.
It looks like Zoe Saldana will be playing the role of legendary singer Nina Simone in an upcoming biopic. Many of Nina’s fans are expressing that they are not happy with the choice, stating Zoe is not black enough or too pretty to play Nina.
Originally, singer Mary J. Blige was previously linked to the starring role, but later backed out.
I feel as though Hollywood has plenty of black actresses to choose from that could have done Nina justice. Zoe Saldana is black, but she’s not Nina Simone black.
What do you all think? Is Zoe right for the role? Take the poll below:
Recently Mega Church Pastor Creflo “Mo Money” Dollar was arrested for “disciplining” his 15 year old daughter. More on that story here.
Dollar yesterday addressed his sheep and said “the allegations made in a police report are nothing but “exaggeration and sensationalism.”
He then went on to further deny the allegations of him choking, throwing, body slamming, kicking, & hitting his teenage daughter with a shoe.
“The truth is she was not choked, she was not punched. There were not any scratches on her neck,” Dollar said. “But the only thing on her neck was a prior skin abrasion from eczema. Anything else is exaggeration and sensationalism.”
This all leads to today’s Open Discussion. How far is too far when physically disciplining your kids? Also, at what age should you stop physically disciplining your kids?
