Relentless Ties by Justice Bahlee (Available on

The mean streets of Washington, D.C. have proven to be both ruthless, and lucrative for the organized crime cartel known as The Council. Controlled by one of the most notorious gangsters America has ever seen, the Council has reigned relentlessly.

When their leader “Bad Ass” Bobby Chance is murdered he leaves behind a grieving widow, three small children, and a herculean legacy to uphold. His son Spencer Chance becomes of age, and is immediately thrust into the position his father once held.
Young Spencer falls in love with Theresa, the daughter of a local minister. After a few months of dating he takes her on a luxurious vacation then proposes marriage and a life of happily ever after. Just when he thinks everything is going well, all hell breaks loose.
His brother is a young promiscuous lawyer who has an affair with the wife of a ruthless Jamaican drug lord, his sister is a reckless, cold blooded killer who finds herself on the run after she murders the sister of the commanding chief of the Mexican mob, and his mother is an idolized Diva who secretly detests his fiancé and tries everything in her power to drive her away. Like his father he is deadly, loyal, and always puts family first, but when his brother, sister, and mother become a liability he has to choose between family, and the woman he has quickly fallen in love with all while fighting a dual war.
After he sends his entire family to an undisclosed location he sets in motion his plans to end the ongoing war by any means necessary. Through blood, sweat, and tears Spencer conquers his adversaries, and barely makes it out alive as the future of The Council lies in the balance.

Exclusive interview with Krystle "Ms. Coochie Crack" Thompson (Real Housewives of ATL)

I recently had the enlightening pleasure of interviewing Krystle "Ms.Coochie Crack" Thompson who appeared on the Real Housewives of Atlanta as a competitor for Jet's beauty of the week. In case you forgot Ms. Coochie Crack was very harshly criticized by former Ms. USA- Kenya Moore. I sought to get Ms. Coochie Crack's side of the story in hopes of clearing the air and seeing just how this unnecessary event has affected her life.
Q: When did you decide to audition for the Jet beauty of the week?

A:I always wanted to audition. And on that day It was kind of a last minute decision after I was encouraged by a friend.

Q: When you woke up that morning what were your expectations for the audition?

A:On the way to the audition I didn’t know what to expect. After some of the girls auditioned Kenya came out and gave a pep talk to those waiting. She told us to give it! And I really thought she was being positive but obviously not.

Q: Were you nervous?

A: I was nervous, because I knew it was going to be filmed.

Q: Was this your first time trying out for something of this nature?

A: No. I have tried out in the past, I have participated in several other events and worked with many celebrities. All without incident.

Q: Before you went before the panel, what was the atmosphere like?

A: It was cool. I thought she would have been supportive, by her encouraging speech and her advice for us to "Give it, and be sexy."

Q: Were there others who complained about Kenya’s behavior toward them?

A: Yes. Q from 112, and many others have said her behavior was horrible.

Q: I noticed that when she was making her negative comments you maintained a smile? Why? What was going through your head at that time?

A: I was trying to make her mad. I try to give the opposite of negativity. She is such a hater it infuriated her. I maintained my professionalism.

Q: How did her comments make you feel as an aspiring artist?

A: It disappointed me because as a little girl I looked up to her as a former Ms. USA. But it also made me feel good because she was obviously threatened.

Q: In my opinion everyone who stands in leadership or authoritative positions should at least show some compassion for those who are trying to reach that plateau? Do you feel that Kenya Moore lacks compassion for others?

A: I do. I think she has inner issues, and insecurities.

Q: How do you feel she could have handled the situation better?

A: She should have said it with more tact. She should have kept her critique. She should also look at her past before she tries to say something.

Q: How has your life changed since the incident?

A: It hasn't been any major changes. I'm realizing that the hate is real when your trying to make it, and being exposed, good or bad.

Q: Has it changed your professional plans any?

A: Not much, but I have enrolled back in school to perfect my craft.

Q: Do you feel she should apologize publicly?

A: I do. But if she feels she doesn't want to it shows who she really is. I want her to apologize not only for me but for women everywhere, because she's putting down women who are just like her. I need it and she will give it...

Q: Do you feel that she bullied you?

A: Not bullied but hated on. It can be considered as bullied, but she's invisible to me.

Q: What are your thoughts about her now?

A: I don't look up to her, I actually despise her. She has loss respect as a woman and a former Ms. USA. No respect right now.

Q: If you could say anything to anyone else who has experienced this what would you say?

A: I would say continue to strive for what's in your heart. If someone is putting you down, don't stop continue. Don't let the problems of others affect you. Let the haters hate.
I also contacted the PACER Center & National Bullying Prevention Center which is publicly supported by Ellen DeGeneres to seek their advice regarding the definition of bullying, and how it affects those targeted.

Julie Hertzog, Director forwarded the following statement:

Definition of Bullying
Bullying behaviors can be much more complex and varied than the stereotype of a boy beating up a smaller classmate. For example, harmful bullying can also occur quietly and covertly, through gossip or on the Internet, causing emotional damage.
Although definitions vary from source to source, most agree that an act is defined as bullying when the behavior hurts or harms another person physically or emotionally, and when the targets have difficulty stopping the behavior directed at them and struggle to defend themselves. Many definitions include a statement about the ”imbalance of power”, described as when the student with the bullying behavior has more “power”, either physically, socially, or emotionally. That may mean the student has a higher social status, is physically larger, or emotionally intimidating.
Impact of Bullying
Research about the short- and long-term damage caused by bullying shows that it affects students in many negative ways. It can affect their education - students may avoid school, lack concentration, and their grades may suffer. Bullying can also lead to physical and mental health problems, including sleeping problems, headaches and stomachaches, depression, self-harm (such as cutting), increased fear or anxiety, and thoughts of suicide.
Although Ms. Hertzog's comments were directed toward students I feel that the information she provided is applicable to all ages. I also feel that bullying is a serious problem in America ans for a former Ms. USA to conduct herself in such a manner. What does this say to our children, both those struggling with being bullied, and those who are bullying. Is Ms. USA really saying it's okay to publicly, humiliate, embarrass, and insult an innocent person.
I'm not judging Kenya Moore, and I don't know what she was thinking at the time but I would definitely like to her  response and see her render an apology to Krystle and others who have been victims of bullying.

Charges dropped against Chris Brown and Drake

Chris Brown and Drake will NOT face criminal charges from their alleged involvement in a massive nightclub brawl this summer in NYC. According to law enforcement, there just isn't enough evidence to move forward with the case.

The investigation into the bottle-smashing brawl at WIP nightclub on June 14th has been concluded and no criminal charges will be filed against the stars or any member of their entourages, and there will be no further investigation.

The surveillance video in the club was rendered useless because it was so dark and blurry, and the interviews that were conducted by the NYPD were inconclusive.

It was reported that Chris suffered injuries to his face from a flying bottle that was allegedly thrown from Drake's table. Several other people were bloodied up in subsequent projectile bottle attacks, including bodyguards and random clubgoers.

NBA star Tony Parker has sued the club over the incident, claiming his eye was injured as a result of the brawl. He's asking for $20 million in damages.

Drake's lawyer Blair Berk stated "Drake was never even a suspect so it's no surprise."

Chris Brown later took to twitter to comment about the incident.

According to sources famous actor Halle Berry's holiday celebration was interupted by her baby's daddy- Gabriel Aubry.

Aubry alledgedly visited Berry's home and while outside he pushed and struck her fiance Olivier Martinez in the shoulder. Reportedly Halle's fiance punched him in the face, cold-cocking him. DAMNNNNN!!! It is still unclear as to whether Gabriel was rendered unconscious or not.

According to photos taken in L.A. a day after the fight Aubry is a bruised, swollen, and battered mess. Following the brawl he was taken to the hospital where he was treated for a broken rib, and a serious face contusion to include an unsightly shiner.

It's clear that Olivier got the better of the fight, but not without an injury to his hand and his neck.

A judge issued an emergency protective order against Gabriel, requiring him to stay 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier, and  their daughter Nahla.

Well Aubrey the next time you decide to pick a fight try picking on somebody who can't beat your ass...tehehe...

Original Tuskegee Airmen is laid to rest

Retired Lt. Col. Herbert Carter, an original Tuskegee Airmen, died Thursday at East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika. He was 95 years old. Montgomery Advertiser reports that Carter was one of only four from the original group of 33 fighter pilots still alive. He was also noted as one of the most vocal about the legacy of the African-American World War II pilots. These great African American pilots have been credited for their instrumental part in devouring racial barriers in the military, and helping to win the war. Their mission was protecting bombers as they tried to attack enemy troops.

Before retiring as a lieutenant colonel in 1969, Carter continued to serve in the Air Force after the war ended. He later served as the associate dean for student services at Tuskegee University.

Carter enjoyed traveling and sharing stories about the Tuskegee Airmen. Along with the other Airmen he spent three weeks advising George Lucas during the pre-production of Red Tails, a film released earlier this year about the Airmen. He commented that the director made them feel like heroes.

“(Lucas) treated us right and fulfilled his promise to make a realistic movie,” Carter stated.

The film was released in January, at which time Carter decided to lessen his appearances for health reasons. However he still spoke at Maxwell Air Force Base’s Gunter Annex.

“It’s a thrill for him to do it,” Kurt Carter said about his father at that time. “He’s just honored to be asked. It recharges his batteries.”

As a result of his wife's death last year it is said that Carter's vitality began to decline, losing weight and his appetite.

Tuskegee Mayor Johnny Ford ordered flags to be flown at half-staff following Carter’s death. He added it was an “appropriate tribute to this national hero, who so valiantly fought fascism abroad and racism at home, and of whom all in Tuskegee are so justly proud.”

The Re-election of President Barack Obama

44th President Barack Obama is set for another four years in the White House and the GOP is upset. I wonder why? For years they have controlled america with an iron fist and for the first time in history we have shown our oppressors that we want, deserve, and demand continuous change. United we stand, Divided we fall, Tighter than pantyhose four sizes small.

So many people are upset about the Re-election of President Barack Obama. I ask why? For many years people of color have been made fun of for our religious beliefs... They think God is a waste of time, they thought slavery would never end, and they thought our President would never be re-elected... My response "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." FOUR MORE YEARS!!!

This week I heard comments like "The world is coming to an end, and Your taxes are going to go up $40 per household in January." I'm sorry white people but people of color are use to living off of a shoestring budget. Hell many of us have made it on no budget at all, but through it all we have trusted God and he has proven that no weapon formed against us shall prosper. I love my people and I love my first family.

Take a bow Dr. King and all of those who sacrificed their lives so that we could be afforded the opportunity to be heard.

Say it with me FOUR MORE YEARS!!!
