While some are still debating Morehouse College’s New Dress Code Policy as being an act of discrimination, there are also Washington University students who have experienced being unfairly targeted because of their dress and even barred from a Chicago nightspot under the guise of a “baggy jeans” policy. In case you are naive enough to think that having a Black president means that racism has been eradicated, check out this email I received yesterday about an experiment done by a group of Black WU students that proved a venue they were visiting in Chicago was discriminating against Black students while White students who dressed in similar attire were allowed entry:

Several stars lit up the Thurgood Marshall College Fund 22nd Annual Anniversary Dinner in New York last night which celebrating 22 years of igniting the dreams of minority students attending 47 member public Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and 6 historically black law schools. The sold out event, hosted by Danny Glover, drew such A-Listers as Mary J. Blige, Monica, Fantasia and more. There were also a few faces we haven’t seen in a while.
Check out the red carpet flix below:
The host for the evening, Danny Glover.

Usher & Gucci Mane on set of “Spotlight” video shoot
Check out a few screen shots from the set of Gucci Mane’s upcoming video for “Spotlight” featuring Usher. The song was featured on a recent “A” Pod (Click Here if you missed it) and is yet another hot joint for Gucci. As if an Usher duo wasn’t enought to create quite a buzz, there’s much talk about the video in that it features Bria Murphy, the oldest daughter of comedian Eddie Murphy and his ex-wife Nicole. The scenery may also look familiar to some of you club heads. It was shot at LIFE over on Cheshire Bridge.

A new video has recently been released from H-Town. You remember H-Town dontcha? Ok… lemme refresh your memory ~~> Knockin the Boots? OK. Now that you’ve been reminded, H-Town originally consisted of members Darryl “G.I.” Jackson and his longtime friends, Solomon “Shazam” Conner and Shazam’s twin brother, Keven “Dino” Conner. The 3rd member of the group, Dino was killed in an automobile accident in 2003. Since that awful loss, the group has continued to perform as a duo and is now back with a new video entitled, Knockin Your Heels Off which features Jodeci. Yep… you read right. JODECI is back in the game and totally stole the spotlight from H-Town!
