Three Atlanta Police officers have been placed on administrative duty pending disciplinary decisions after being accused of conducting an illegal strip search & body cavity search.

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s birthday, I give you the “King Holiday” tribute video.
This rare vintage video, made way back in 1986, which by the way was the first year the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. national holiday was honored, brought together some of the top artists of that time to honor his legacy and celebrate the day.
King’s son Dexter is featured in the opening, while the “King Dream Chorus and Holiday Crew” featuring the likes of El DeBarge, The Fat Boys, Whitney Houston (before the crack), Full Force, Grandmaster Melle Mel, Kurtis Blow, Stacy Lattisaw, Lisa Lisa, Teena Marie, Menudo, Stephanie Mills, New Edition, Run-D.M.C., James “J.T.” Taylor & Whodini, all sing and rap their way into history.

Time flies. People change. But “I’m Serious” is still a masterpiece to me…
