Old-school eulogy at Aretha
Franklin funeral ignites wrath

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 8/31/2018 11:03:38 PM

DETROIT -- A fiery, old-school eulogist at the funeral of Aretha Franklin fell flat for many in the crowd and prompted a social media uproar when he declared "black America has lost its soul," black women are incapable of raising sons alone and the Black Lives Matter movement is unfounded in the face of black-on-black crime. (Snip) As he wended his way through the need for more African Americans to return to church and more men to return to their families, the heat turned up online, with younger people declaring rhetoric such as that of Williams is why they left

Predictably yahoo ridiculed him, called him "old-school" and claimed twitter stormed against him. In fact, telling hard truths is what a preacher is supposed to do. As opposed to the easy lies that people like Jesse Jackson and Dem political leaders tell. Interestingly, almost all the reactions on yahoo agree with and congratulate the preacher. yahoo will likely remove the comment section.

In any case if the urban Black communities ever intend to move on out of the dark ages they are going to decide to update their culture by themselves.

I read one time that funerals are not necessarily for the deceased person, but for the living ones there.

There is really no call for politicizing a sober celebrating of life service a la a "Wellstone memorial". Aretha´s life is a great example of celebration in itself!

Why are so many ashamed of the truth???

Fast-food giant Chipotle rehired a manager of one of its Minnesota franchises it had fired after she was recorded in a series of viral cellphone videos refusing to serve a group of young black men unless they paid first. The restaurant chain said in a statement Monday that it reversed it´s decision after it "spent the last few days reviewing the evidence available to us regarding the incident." The company had earlier said it was aware that one of the alleged victims who claimed that he and his friends were racially profiled had previously boasted on Twitter about dine-and-dash

PHILADELPHIA — Four people were found shot and killed execution-style in a basement Monday afternoon in southwest Philadelphia, CBS Philadelphia reports. Philadelphia police say two men and two women were found in the basement of a home with one gunshot wound each to the head. They were all pronounced dead at the scene. Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said the bodies were discovered when officers were conducting a wellness check shortly after noon. A relative called police after not hearing from one of the victims. The relative who called officers first found the door slightly open, but thought little

Democrat Stacey Abrams isn´t backing down from her fight against what she calls voter suppression tactics and election mismanagement after losing the Georgia governor´s race. In fact, Abrams said she experienced the problems in her state firsthand — after nearly being denied a ballot during early voting. In an interview with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee said that when she went to vote last month, a poll worker initially told her that she had requested an absentee ballot and couldn´t cast an in-person vote. Abrams replied that she never filed for an absentee ballot, and after

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Cory Booker is going back to New Hampshire next month. The New Jersey Democrat, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, will headline the state Democratic Party´s victory party Dec. 8. Booker´s trip will take place after the midterm elections and before he decides whether to run for president and/or another term in the Senate in 2020. New Hampshire is the site of the first presidential primary a little over two years from now. "My focus right now is running for re-election," Booker told NJ Advance Media, "but I will take some time during this

JACKSON, Miss. - A white Republican senator’s casual reference to a “public hanging” has invigorated a special election runoff in Mississippi, fueling Democratic hopes of an upset in a conservative state with an ugly history of racist violence. The U.S. Senate race between appointed Republican incumbent Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy, a black former congressman and U.S. agriculture secretary, will test the power of the black vote and the viability of Democrats in a region where Republicans have dominated for decades. The Nov. 27 runoff caps a congressional election cycle drawn out by recounts and too-close-to-call races.

Lecturers have been banned from using capital letters when assigning work to students because it might upset them. Staff at Leeds Trinity’s journalism department have been told writing to students using capital letters could ‘scare them into failure’ and instead suggested using a ‘friendly tone’ and avoiding the use of negative language. Critics have since slammed the memo, saying it is just aiding to the ‘snowflake’ generation being overindulged throughout their education – following incidents in Manchester and Kent. The memo said: ‘Despite our best attempts to explain assessment tasks, any lack of clarity can generate anxiety and even

Democrats thinking about running for president in 2020 are dramatically changing the way the party talks about race in Donald Trump’s America: Get ready to hear a lot more about intersectionality, allyship, inclusivity and POC. White and nonwhite Democratic hopefuls are talking more explicitly about race than the party’s White House aspirants ever have — and shrugging off warnings that embracing so-called identity politics could distract from the party’s economic message and push white voters further into Donald Trump’s arms. While the 2020 primary will feature debates about Medicare for all and college affordability, the Democratic base also wants

Stacey Abrams is not conceding. That’s what she said at a press conference in Atlanta on Friday. “This is not a speech of concession,” she told supporters and reporters, “because concession means an action is right, true, or proper. As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.” But the former Georgia state representative and Democratic nominee for governor did essentially end her campaign and recognize that her opponent, Brian Kemp, the GOP nominee and former state secretary of state, will officially win the election. “I acknowledge that Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in

The Woolsey fire has burned nearly 100,000 acres in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Thousands of people in mobile-home parks and tony gated communities alike have been displaced. Many have lost their homes completely. California government officials have estimated that more than 1 million homes throughout the state are located in "high-risk" fire areas. That´s a lot of property to protect when a fast-moving wildfire is approaching, and county fire departments and volunteers often can´t manage the job alone.

Smoke from the Northern California fire is leading to record-high levels of air pollution. Masks have become the fashion statement du jour in San Francisco the past few days. The air quality index in San Francisco rose to 258 at noon Friday, a reading which qualifies as "very unhealthy." That reading had only sunk to 209 by 9 p.m. local time on Friday.

But on Thursday night, they were just trying to get home. The region was crippled by snow and ice, with the effects ranging from felled tree branches in city neighborhoods to children trapped on school buses for hours. In New Jersey, one person died after an accident involving a train and a car, said Gov. Philip D. Murphy. As residents recovered and demanded an explanation, The Times asked readers to share their experiences.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state´s logging rules in nearly half a century. "Gov.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

Peggy Noonan’s intense dislike for President Donald Trump undermines her credibility as a fair and balanced columnist: She cannot be true to her trade when she hates the objects of her pen. With the Trumps, she has lost all sense of balance. Her unwarranted attack on First Lady Melania Trump last weekend in the Wall Street Journal is plain ugly. In a column titled “Melania’s Misstep and Michelle’s Mystery,” Noonan declares her love for former first lady Michelle Obama after reading her memoir, Becoming. Noonan should know by now that every auto-biographer blows his/her own trumpet.

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled on Thursday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has 30 days to answer additional questions about her email scandal. The decision comes after Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit to obtain additional information from Clinton and Director of Information Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat John Bentel. The watchdog group also wanted top Clinton aides and State Department officials, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills´, deposition videos made public. The lawsuit was part of a broader Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that came about in October 2016 when Clinton refused to

The race had been initially too close to call, with both McAdams and Love at different points taking a slight edge over each other. In the end, the Associated Press called the race for the Democrat on Nov. 20. Polls had showed McAdams with a slight edge over Love, with Sabato´s Crystal Ball shifting her race from a “toss-up” to “leans
