New Zealand Attack On Muslims Ignites Discussion on Homegrown Islamophobia

Mirroring the ideologies of domestic terrorists like Dylann Roof and disgraced Coast Guard Lieutenant Christopher Paul Hasson, extremists have carried out two deadly attacks in central Christchurch, New Zealand.

With four initial apprehensions, one 28 year-old male has been charged with murder. New Zealand police officials are looking for the team responsible for carrying out two shooting attacks on two mosques. According to New Zealand authorities, the current toll is 49 dead and 48 injured.

Portions of the horrid attack were streamed on social media by an extremist who authored a 74-page manifesto. Attempting to rally White supremacists against immigrants and Muslims, the text was filled with conspiracy theories about “White genocide” and low White birth rates.

Many Americans have shown an outpouring of love and support for those affected by the crisis. A large portion of the response has been directed toward addressing rampant Islamophobia within America and abroad. While hate speech in the US is protected by the First Amendment, there was a recent vote for an anti-hate resolution. After remarks by Ilhan Omar were misconstrued as anti-Semitism, the House proposed and passed the resolution to condemn racism, anti-Semitic, and Islamophobic speech. However, 23 Republicans refused the measure because they felt it suppressed the impact of the resolution by lumping White supremacist language in with Islamophobic hate speech.

Donald Trump’s weak extension of “warmest sympathy and best wishes” to New Zealand has many critiquing the President’s policies and rhetoric. Trump was cited in the 74-page manifesto as “a symbol of renewed White identity.” His inability to call out the horrific misdeed as an act of terrorism against practicing Muslims and immigrants has millions on edge, wary of the language that many right-wing politicians will use to condone the hatred as “free speech” or “an attack on public correctness.” This, in conjunction with his response to domestic attacks on Black Christians, Jewish, and Muslim Americans, has many calling for an outright ban of hate speech altogether. Because of the clear connection that hate speech motivates hate crimes, millions are demanding a hate speech ban in light of today’s attacks.

“She’s broke!” Eva Marcille’s Bitter Bridesmaid Spills Tea to Marlo Hampton

Eva Marcille Seannita Parmer Marlo Hampton

Eva The Diva and her cousin, Terrell Mullin, have been on the defensive since the latest episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta aired. The recently wed winner of the third cycle of America’s Next Top Model has been slandered by her own bridesmaid, Seannita Parmer.

Parmer confided in Marlo Hampton with the juicy details of Eva’s financials, alleging that she and her husband, Atlanta attorney Michael Sterling, are struggling. Marlo says that Seannita called her, introduced herself, and then dropped the motherlode of receipts. But according to Marlo, we haven’t even heard it all.

No Money, Mo’ Problems

Sitting with NeNe Leakes and discussing the beautiful ceremony, for which The Sterlings spared no expense, Marlo said, “They probably did not, but they should have.” Running down a segment of their financial woes, Marlo said the streets told her Eva is paying for everything, they’re living in a rented home, and they are facing eviction! She also spilled tea regarding several unpaid bills and alluded to them allegedly using a backhanded method to obtain a vehicle.

Furious that Seannita would betray his cousin, established Makeup Artist Terrell Mullin spilled some of her tea in return. Mullin claims that Seannita Parmer went on her own broke and homeless tour that lasted two years. Crashing on Eva Marcille’s couch, Parmer allegedly stayed rent free at her Los Angeles home. Outraged, Eva chimed in, leaving a comment calling her “just trash.”

However, Seannita came back with a rebuttal, stating she “slept in the 3rd bedroom to help take care of her daughter.” Not only did she still own a home during this time, Seannita says the “5 bedroom house with an elevator she used to film RHOA in and also the house her and her husband lived in was rented by my family as well.” She then said Eva Marcille ran up the utilities on the property in a senior citizen’s name and they haven’t paid them yet. Seannita Parmer says her family is filing suit today.

So because I bring info to the group I’m messy, unhappy & jealous, PLEASE! I stated what the streets was saying, just like these girls have done to me for the last 6 years, however this tea came with RECEIPTS, so why would I not bring it to her Big Sis who could let her know her business was being spread by her supposed best friends & bridesmaids. Even some of her so called new friends were giggling when they heard the tea, but so concerned when spilling it to her 👀. … And to show y’all how messy I’M NOT, I didn’t even share all the documentation/proof I was given. I’ve endured so many nasty LIES about me in this group of women, I date old white men, I’m a prostitute, NO — What I am is a single woman that dates men that I’m attracted to of any color! I came on RHOA with a Black Man, Charles Grant, I was the breadwinner in the relationship 😉 the white billionaire they love to mention was my boyfriend for over 4 years, he courted me for 6 months while I ran my store the Red Carpet Boutique, we were in love, it didn’t work out, he broke my heart. … Please give me a receipt, a picture, a screen shot of me being a Ho, Prostitute, Escort… I’ve been waiting for 6 years, seriously, show it! I’m a #FactStater, I say what they’re thinking and do what I want. Is my delivery the best, No, I’m working on that, but it’s always truthful & without malice. …. Having a husband & family is important to me, but I grew up without a father and half of a mother, I know how to survive. I take care of me, I’ve survived this far & doing damn good. I’ll take that step, when the time is right, for the right reasons. … Not because society says so, not because it’s the trend & definitely not because a group of bored, bitter women with washed up careers think I should because they are threatened by a confident, sexy, educated, hard working & fashionable Single Woman… #Periodt And don’t get it twisted I don’t date broke, go purchase one of my t shirts if you feel me, 10% now using code “FactStater” never jealous of a 🍑 cause the 💰is secured, half the work, double the pay, winning 🤷🏽‍♀️.

A post shared by M A R L O H A M P T O N (@marlohampton) on

Because Marlo Hampton was the one to spill the tea, she’s been catching all the heat. In a long Instagram caption, Marlo defended herself against the many rumors that she’s just a messy escort. She ended her rant with “never jealous of a peach cause the bag is secured, half the work, double the pay, winning.”

“Help me, I’m poor!” R Kelly requests permission to travel for work

R. Kelly Dubai

Citing his financial woes, R. Kelly has requested permission to travel so he can earn a living to pay his many debts. There’s just one problem — The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer wants to take wing all the way to Dubai.

R. Kelly will be appearing in a Chicago court March 22nd, standing before Judge Lawrence Flood to plead for permission to leave the country. Since being ousted from several performances amid his many sexual misconduct allegations, the singer claims he has been unable to maintain his financial obligations. To make ends meet, the singer wants to go to Dubai to keep performances that were scheduled before his indictment.

Landing in and out of jail due to his 10-count indictment, Kelly has already shown he’s unable to pay his way through this process. Donors have paid both Kelly’s bond and back child support, temporarily freeing him from incarceration. Revealing his financial state to Gayle King, Kelly says that he only has $350,000 in his Bank of America account. Although those funds would have more than covered his $161,000 child support payment, paying the expense himself would have left Kelly struggling to cover increasing legal fees. That’s why his attorney, Steven Greenburg, has asked for a motion to permit travel.

As has been well publicized, Mr. Kelly needs to generate income. He has struggled of late to pay his child support and other child-related expenses. Denying him the opportunity to work would be a hardship on his children.”

Since R. Kelly has been dropped from his recording contact with RCA/Sony and had his songs removed from several streaming services, the singer has virtually no income. Should the motion for travel be approved, R. Kelly would be allowed to go to Dubai for performance between April 17th to 19th. However, Dubai and the U.S. government have no existing extradition treaty, meaning there’s cause for concern that Kelly is attempting to flee the country.

Claiming that he is only going to perform and “meet with the royal family”, R. Kelly and his attorney say there is no reason to consider Kelly a flight risk. Dubai has been host to several celebrities and has garnered a reputation as a luxury destination.

This Post will be updated once Judge Flood reaches a decision.
