I really hope you enjoy Mondays as much as I do, although the reality of life can hit you as another police man, in McKinney Texas this time, is being accused of excessive force on a group of black people. Also, WNBA players Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson beat Kim Kardashian for a quickie wedding.
WNBA Players Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson Ending 29-Day Marriage
Love is not easy. Whether you are straight, gay, woman or man, there is shit that goes on that is universal and sometimes, it just doesn’t work out.
WNBA star Brittney Griner who proposed to and married fellow WNBA star Glory Johnson has filed papers to have their almost a month long marriage annulled. All of this comes just a day after Johnson announced via social media that she was pregnant. Of course there is so much going on with this story and the burning question on all of our minds is, “What the hell happened?”
Reports from both sides are all over the place. Griner is saying that she was forced into the marriage and Johnson is saying she did not see this coming. They got engaged last year, they were both arrested after a violent fight in Goodyear, AZ which Griner plead guilty to in April of this year, they were married on May 8, on June 4th Johnson announces she is pregnant and the next day Griner files for an annulment of their marriage.
It is all so interesting because the things that have come out since the request for an annulment are very revealing. Griner said that she got married due to “fraud and duress,” because she was “pressured into marriage under duress by Johnson’s threatening statements.”
Once more, even with all that is going on, Johnson, who says she is very hurt by the annulment, plans to keep the baby.
This drama I am sure is definitely not over.
Ariana Grande Pens Open Letter… Tells Us How She Really Feels
According to Ariana Grande, she is tired of the bullshit. She took to social media to do what most famous people do when they want to make a ruckus- blast her critics.
With everything that has happened in her life over the last six months, her open letter, which is a kind of empowering feminist manifesto, touches on everything from how stupid the media is to how she really feels about her ex Big Sean and everything that went down.
It seems the reason for her rant in the first place has something to do with the fact that people are referring to her as Big Sean’s ex (I mean, she is). Her thing is she wants people to see her for who she is as a talent and singer not has as someone who used to be attached to some famous rapper dude.
“I am tired of living in a world where women are mostly referred to as a man’s past, present or future PROPERTY/POSSESION,” writes Grande, who’s avoided “boy questions” in interviews.
Then she goes on to say what probably every woman on earth has either said or thought at some point in their lives.
“If a woman has a lot of sex (or any sex for that matter)…. She’s a slut. If a man has sex… HE’S a BOSSSSSS, a KING…. If a woman even TALKS about sex openly, she is shamed.”
She went in on how society’s double standard is both disgusting and tired and that all women should stand up for who they are, what they like and what they are about.
Damn right Araina Grande. Say that!
Calamity in McKinney Texas Just Fuel to the Ongoing Racial Fire
So here it is. It has happened again. Another white police officer mistreating black people (this time a group of teenagers), a story that has picked up steam thanks to a camera and social media.
Now there are differing stories about what happened and even adults who were present at the pool party have spoken out saying that it is not what it seems. Here is the gist of the situation.
There is a planned community with a pool. Residents can only have two guests a each at the pool. A whole bunch of teenagers, predominately black teenagers, show up. They are not allowed in so they begin hoping the fence, and banging on the door for entry. The security guard there couldn’t get control so calls the police. The police show up and all hell breaks loose.
I don’t care what these witnesses are saying (one of them being a 43-year old black man, Benet Embry) none of these kids had weapons, none of them were doing anything harmful, none of them deserved to be treated like they were. Video does not lie. A grown ass man throwing a 14 year old girl in a bikini to the grown and putting his knee in her back IS WRONG. Period.
Either this man really does have an issue with black people or the police officers in McKinney are in desperate need of training.
Yes the cop has been suspended and an investigation is under way, but is that enough. No one was killed but I am sure people were scarred emotionally. Everyone has to do their part in making sure this kind of shit stops.
The investigation is ongoing.Watch the unedited footage below:
