Raven-Symone is speaking out after being dragged online for derogatory comments she made about her thoughts on Ghetto Black names.
The former child star made a few controversial statements when asked if she would ‘judge’ a person by their name and in a world filled with children growing up with names like ‘North’ West, ‘Blue Ivy,’ and Apple many felt Raven-Symone’s statement about ‘Watermelondrea’ was blatantly racist and out of line.

Raven recently offered an explanation and an apology of sorts to the millions of people she offended with her comments about how she would NEVER hire anyone with a name like ‘Watermelondria,’ stating:
As an equal opportunity employer, I have never discriminated against a name….even though I said I would, it’s not true. My comment was in poor taste.
Raven’s father, Christopher B. Pearman also hit the net to offer an apology for his daughter, stating that she often says ‘dumb sh*t’ but he’s still proud of his little girl.

An Atlanta area company has fired several White employees after they were found making racist comments about a co-worker’s child on Facebook.
The man in the photo above, who goes by the online alias ‘Geris Hilton,’ posted the pic on his facebook page as he was being photobombed by his Sydney Jade’s young son, Cayden. Innocent right? Wrong!

Hilton (real name Gerod Roth) and several of his online friends then made a slew of racist comments about the child as they worked alongside the mother nearby. Comments calling the innocent child names like “Toby”, “Kunta Kente”, “sambo” and “feral” with one of Geris/Gerod friends stating that she “didn’t know that he was a slave owner.”

Geris/Gerod initially made the post on September 16, 2015 unbeknownst to the child’s mother. He then went to work everyday working alongside the mother while making these horrible comments behind her back. In one screenshot, Geris/Gerod even made up terrible lies about the mother and Cayden that has gone viral along with the picture.

At that time, Dickens was accused of writing a Facebook post (using the alias Tiffany Milan), in which she called for “death to all white cops nationwide.”
She further typed that she was plotting a mass execution of ‘at least 15 officers,’ stating:
“I thought about shooting every white cop I see in the head until I’m either caught by the police or killed by them… Might kill at least 15 tomorrow, I’m plotting now.” (read more)
Now the woman is speaking out and has issued a formal video taped response to her social media based arrest.

Two years after accusations of racism nearly destroyed her food empire, it seems Paula Deen has learned nothing!

For the record, a racist attitude is not something that can be apologized away. Feeling bad about it is not going to wash away all the years she felt ‘some kinda way’ about other cultures. That being said, Deen, the former Food Network star and court documented racist, has landed herself in hot water yet again.

Early Tuesday morning, Deen’s social media accounts sent out a tweet and Facebook post with a photo depicting the cook dressed as Lucille Ball’s character from the 1950s television sitcom “I Love Lucy.”
Her son, Bobby Deen, is dressed as the show’s husband, Ricky Ricardo (Cuban-American Desi Arnaz) and the younger Deen is wearing what several media outlets are referring to as “brownface” to mimic Arnaz’s ethnicity.
*sigh* Same ish… different day!
The photo has since been deleted but as you know… nothing is ever truly ‘deleted’ from the net.

OK… so it’s the day after Memorial Day. All the BBQ’s are over and yet, the debate still continues about whether a woman should fix her man’s plate or not.
[FLASHBACK: Nightline Face-Off: ‘Why Can’t Successful Black Women Find a Man? (VIDEO)]
The discussion began about a week ago on Twitter and Facebook, when a meme popped up inquiring the following:
Soooooooooooo you are at a barbeque. Your man is hungry. He lets you know he is hungry but you are not the kind of woman to go around ‘fixing plates’ for a man so you ignore him.
A random woman hears this and says, ‘I will fix your plate.’ She sashays away and comes back with a plate for your man.
Do you have any problems with this?
The battle has continued and it’s actually getting quite entertaining. I personally don’t have a problem ‘fixin plates’ but apparently there are a lot of women who feel ‘some kinda way’ about the question even being asked…
Check out what the ‘tweets’ had to say about it all below and share your thoughts… Continue Reading…
