April Portis and her 11-month-old son, Jahmai, checked into the Motel 6 in Virginia Beach, Va. last weekend, when little Jahmai found a spoon used to cook crack and began licking it. The manager of the "hotel" offered the family one night free then moved them to the best room in the building, where the family found a crack pipe under the bed. It's a true crack den. Jahmai is fine. Things could've been worse.
Don't wish Everlyn Davis "good morning", because she's just not in the mood. While dropping off one of her children at an elementary school in Oklahoma City Monday morning, a teacher said "good morning" to the 41-year-old woman, who replied by slapping the teacher in the face. She then drove to a different school (where she has a child in the 7th grade), and when a teacher wished her "good morning", Everlyn slapped her, too. It turned out to be a very bad morning for Everlyn, because she was jailed and is facing assault charges.
Drag racing gone wrong. Shortly before 3am Sunday an SUV crashed into a car on a bridge in St Petersburg, Fla. The drivers of both vehicles escaped before police arrived. Traffic was tied up for hours.
Racism in Houston? No way! A white rap group was denied entrance to the Roosevelt Lounge last weekend, because they had "had too many black people" with them. The club says they do have "standards and have the right to refuse entrance to anyone," but they say race has nothing to do with it. Yeah, right. Folks shouldn't be shocked, racism in Houston is legendary.
Meanwhile, in Solon Township, Michigan, Eric Pierson was feeling racist-y so he approached a black man in a store and called him "dark chocolate", pushed him and pulled a knife on him. The man left the store to go retrieve his gun and when he returned, Eric was still mouthing off and called him the man the "N-word." The man pointed his gun at Eric, who was arrested.
And in London, another woman hurls racial insults at foreigners on the tube, er, subway. Remember folks: Public transportation is not safe for life.
