Why Gospel Artist, Kirk Franklin is a Positive Mentor For Black Women


We never heard gospel artist, Kirk Franklin's testimony.  He allegedly shared how he has been unwanted by his family members: father, mother and grandmother.  Yes, this is why his music is so universal for Christ, because it hurts so much when your own race and relatives hurt you.  Therefore, many of you black women can relate with Kirk Franklin and now realize many of us who did not have a father and did not have a mother's love are not alone.  Souls of Black Women love Kirk Franklin!
 
So many black families always like to falsely accuse one person for staying away when the real root of the problem is them.  How can anyone come around, if you don't want them?  Many of us black women should really celebrate Kirk's music, because it takes a strong man of God to admit he has always been unwanted by his relatives, allegedly.

Phillip Burns may have been once admired for being 'Teacher of the Year', but he is now in big trouble for allegedly molesting young boys, knowing he was HIV positive. You see, this is why we have so many young black men growing up confused, because of nasty men turning them out and even worse, many of them infected with HIV after being molested.

Update: LAPD Officer Charged With Assault in Woman’s Death


If you recall, we did a previous article about this young woman's death.  The police officers in this case, allegedly claim Alesia Thomas was resisting arrest, but there is no excuse to ever beat her for it.  We are sure the police academy trains their students not to beat citizens, but if not, they need to start including lessons against police brutality in their courses.

According to KTLA.com, officers from the Los Angeles Police Department were sent to Alesia Thomas’ home in the 9100 block of South Broadway Avenue to investigate a possible child abandonment report on July 22.

Thank God, justice will be served, because it is very wrong for any police officer to harm and kill a human being.  Another thing, we notice the black community mostly focuses on police brutality against black men, but it happens to black women a lot too and we need to encourage more equality when it comes to that issues.  It's more difficult a lot of times when it comes to black women, because too many black women are against each other and support the black male in many cases.

LAPD Officer Charged With Assault in Woman’s Death

Sisters, this is an update in the case of the dead young Hawthorne woman, Naquia Catching.  Her stepfather who is allegedly responsible for killing her is on the gun and police are trying to find him.   We certainly hope police catch him, so he can be prosecuted for what he did to Naquia.  

If you read our previous article, this young black woman was hardworking, she worked two jobs.  At 22, she was very responsible and did not deserve to lose her life, because of this man's rage. 

In the meantime, we sincerely hope he repents for what he has allegedly done.
