Previously reported as a murder perpetrated by a homeless man, the husband and stepdaughter of Jacquelyn Smith have been arrested in connection to her death.

Back in December, Baltimore Police investigators were searching for an unknown homeless assailant who had allegedly stabbed Jacquelyn while she was donating money from her vehicle. Now, Keith Smith and Valeria Smith, the husband and stepdaughter who were in the vehicle at the time, have been arrested on murder charges.

Their initial statement to police said a woman carrying a baby swaddled in a blanket was standing along the side of the road. She was holding a sign that encouraged passersby to donate, helping her to feed her child. That’s when Jacquelyn pulled over and rolled down the window to hand the woman $10. During her act of kindness, she was attacked by a nearby man who stabbed the victim multiple times before running away. However, Baltimore PD’s concluded investigation has uncovered the truth, revealing Keith and Valeria were co-conspirators in Jacquelyn’s death.

Keith and Valeria Smith were arrested near the U.S. – Mexico border while attempting to flee justice. Apprehended by officials in Harlingen, Texas, the father-daughter duo faces first-degree murder charges. At this time, Baltimore police have yet to confirm how the two were involved.

Live From the Sunken Place, Daniel Caesar Capes for YesJulz in Live Instagram Rant

mm

Published

Daniel Caesar is a prime example of how Black men enable outsiders to wade superficially in the waters of our culture. Here’s to hoping they both drown.

The 23-year-old “artist” decided he was going to have a serious conversation and ask some real questions Tuesday evening on Instagram Live. The Canadian “singer/songwriter” wondered why we, presumably Black folx, were being so mean to YesJulz. How tragic! How could we be so insensitive to this adult White female who should claim ownership of her actions and words? How could we be so naive to expect a grown woman, with the ability to read, to do her research on the many contributions Black people have made to advance our own culture while she eats from our table? The unmitigated gall!

Daniel Caesar has fallen into the Sunken Place™, believing he needs to defend his little friend, nee all White people, from a group of disrespectful, hypersensitive, hard “ers.” Sporting his Golden Lord bleach blonde wig, Caesar decided to tell us uncultured poors that we should learn to take a joke. Acknowledging that “White people have been mean to us in the past” Caesar said, “what are we going to do about it?” He then told us to “keep it moving. That’s some biblical sh*t. You have to bridge the gap.” Whew, chile!

Why are we being so mean to Julz?

There’s a lot wrong with Daniel Caesar’s statements, so I suppose we’ll start at the top. Beginning with his question on why Black people are united in calling out his culture vulture succubus of a friend, the answer is simple. It’s because she is uneducated and does not give credit or create opportunities. While simultaneously going out of her way to attack Black women, who she claims are not “competition”, Julz gives the very disrespect she is getting. She does this all while receiving gratuitous praise from Black men who do not value Black women. Thus, feeding into a storm of misogynoir and culture consumerism just to make a coin. According to Daniel Caesar’s ideology, our attacks on her are merited. “That’s biblical sh*t”. An eye for an eye. YesJulz is 29-years-old, six years older than her staunch defender, and every bit as capable of taking these “jokes.” Next case!

Why are we being so mean to White people?

We have a lot to be angry about when it comes to the history and current interactions between Black and White people. Here we are, just days after the Christchurch attacks, weeks after a Black male was killed to incite a race war, explaining to a Black Canadian why White people deserve some heat. It’s almost as if he’s never watched the news or cracked a history book in his life. The privilege of having a different experience of Blackness may be the reason why Daniel Caesar can’t see how asinine his comments are. Still, that does not remove him from being able to empathize with Black Americans. Even in his own country, he should recognize White Canadians role in the genocide of First Nations people.

We aren’t in the business of defending his ilk and to detail in a single post why White people are getting so much rage is impossible. I couldn’t begin to expound on every single White misdeed, even on a national scale, because they are too numerous. Nor should I have to because at this point, Daniel Caesar is being willfully ignorant. Speaking to his fans and telling them to “bridge the gap” as if Black people haven’t been left without materials to build a bridge is cheap. I cannot say I expect better of him because he is a reflection of the company he keeps. Daniel Caesar is lost, having chosen the hill of defending a racist to die on, and to that I say ‘Dracarys’.

Wendy Williams Reveals She’s Been Living in “Sober Home”

wendy williams reveals addiction

For years people scolded Wendy for never spilling her own tea. Well, here it is. Wendy Williams has been living in a “sober home” to quietly get treatment for a long unresolved addition to cocaine.

Revealing a secret known only to her husband, Kevin Hunter, Wendy says although she has always been candid about her cocaine use, she never sought treatment. The daytime television gossip queen shared with her audience that after each episode is filmed she goes to her Pilates class and then heads to several meetings across the city before ultimately returning to her group home. Driven by a “24-hour sober coach”, Wendy has been rooming at a facility where it’s “doors locked by 10 pm, lights out by 10pm.” Detailing her evenings, she says, “I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you.”

“It’s my truth.”

Over the course of her career, Wendy Williams has discussed her drug use multiple times. However, when it comes to how she stopped, Wendy says, “I never went to a place to get the treatment — I didn’t know how, except God was just sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.” While she was seeking professional help for her addiction, Wendy said she did not confide in her other family members. As for whether her stay in the group home contributed to her absence from January to March 4th, we can’t be sure. A fractured shoulder and ongoing battle with Graves’ disease are credited as responsible for her extended break.

Wendy’s admission has been applauded by many who want to remove the stigma surrounding drug addiction discussions. Many have taken to Twitter to share their love and support for her. Recently, Wendy’s foundation partnered with an organization geared toward branching treatment and long-term recovery. She hopes that by being open about her struggle, other will be inspired to get the help they need.
