Beloved Civil Rights Activist Sadie Roberts-Joseph Died of “Traumatic Asphyxia,” Death Ruled a Homicide

The cause of death of the beloved 75-year-old civil rights activists found deceased in a trunk has been determined.

According to results of a preliminary autopsy released on Monday (Jul. 15) by the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner’s Office, Sadie Roberts-Joseph died from traumatic asphyxia, including suffocation.

Her death has been ruled a homicide.

East Baton Rouge coroner, Beau Clark, released the following statement:

“It’s with great sadness and respect that we investigate any unexpected or traumatic death. When our investigation involves an innocent victim, such as Ms. Sadie Roberts-Joseph, it is particularly tragic. Our condolences are extended to Ms. Joseph’s family and friends.”

Roberts-Joseph’s body was tragically found in the trunk of a car last Friday, just three miles from her home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. However, it’s unclear to whom the car belonged.

Police haven’t released many details regarding their investigation, but say members of the community have come forward to help.

Roberts-Joseph’s death has shocked the Baton Rouge community and left it in a state of mourning. The activist was the founder and curator of the city’s African-American museum and hosted the annual Juneteenth festivities.

“We mourn the loss of Sadie Roberts–Joseph and offer condolences to her family, loved ones and the Baton Rouge community,” the NAACP said in a statement. “Black women must be protected at all costs—justice must be swift.”

Police are investigating whether the 75-year-old had received any threats prior to her death, but they say that it’s too early to determine if her murder was racially motivated.

Young Thug Says Lil Nas X Shouldn’t Have Told the World He’s Gay

Last month, rapper Lil Nas X announced to the world that he’s gay. The “Old Town Road” singer-rapper revealed the news on the last day of Pride Month.

While many have shown support and congratulated Lil Nas X on his decision to come out, one celebrity, in particular, believes he should have kept it a secret.

During a recent interview with Adam22 on No Jumper, Young Thug—who also appears on the remix to Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road”—said the overnight rap sensation shouldn’t have come out of the closet because people will now only see him as being that gay rapper.

“I feel like he probably shouldn’t have told the world,” Thug told Adam 22. “He shouldn’t have told the world. These days, motherf**kers, it’s just all judgment. Motherf**kers is just judging. It ain’t even about the music no more.

“Once you found out he was gay, as soon as the song come on now, everybody like, “this gay-ass n**ga”. N**gas don’t even care to listen to the song no more… It’s just like, to certain people, you know what I’m saying?”

Thug also spoke on all the backlash Lil Nas X will receive over his coming out. Thug said that he went through the same thing and knows exactly how Lil Nas X is feeling right now.

“I just feel like he young, and backlash can come behind anything,” Thugger noted. “[His coming out] wasn’t a bad idea, and it was most definitely the best time to do it, during Pride. That was the best time to do it. That was a G’s move.

“But he young, and I know he going to be dealing with it in his mind. I dealt with this sh*t before. I know what he dealing with. So I was like, “F**k, he should have never said that, never should have told them.”

For years now Young Thug has sparked and perpetuated gay rumors, but has never outright confirmed if they were true or not.

Is this interview him finally admitting that he is gay and can relate to Lil Nas X?

NeNe Leakes Still Refuses to Film With Kenya Moore & Porsha Williams on “Real Housewives of Atlanta”

After weeks of being the only cast member MIA, NeNe Leakes has finally begun filming the 12th season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta—well, kinda.

Though NeNe will be a full-time housewife in the upcoming season, she is reportedly refusing to film with several of her castmates.

According to Radar Online, NeNe has only filmed with Kandi Burruss, Marlo Hampton and newcomer Yovanna Love because she continues to refuse to film with Kenya Moore or Porsha Williams.

NeNe began filming in early July even though production reportedly began in late May.

While there was much speculation as to why NeNe didn’t begin filming with the rest of the cast, a source tells Radar that NeNe was “so happy” to return.

“The old NeNe is back,” the source said. “NeNe’s re-entry to the group was set up and it went very well.”

NeNe concluded season 11 by fighting with everyone except Marlo, and remained somewhat neutral with Kandi because she was “not important” enough to feud with.

Last month, we reported NeNe was refusing to film with Kenya and Porsha because she feared they would only pick fights with her and she didn’t want to give them the opportunity to start any drama.

Radar’s source says NeNe is ready to move forward with Kenya, Porsha, and Cynthia Bailey, just on her own terms. “NeNe is so over last year and all the fights.”

“NeNe’s return to filming is a good way to start the season, but she is going to definitely film with Kenya and Porsha later on. She’s just waiting until the time is right, and the cameras will be rolling,” the source continued.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is expected to return this fall.

Donald Trump Called “Racist-in-Chief” After He Told Congresswomen of Color to “Go Back” Where They Came From

As if we needed any more proof that Donald Trump is an ignorant, racist, xenophobic, misogynistic piece of trash.

The President we don’t claim fired off a string of tweets Sunday morning criticizing a group of progressive Democratic congresswomen and urging them to “go back” to where they came from, despite the fact that all of the women are American citizens.

“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

While Trump didn’t explicitly mention any of the congresswomen by name, everyone knew exactly who he was referring to.

As CNN noted, a group of women of color in the Democratic party—specifically New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley from Massachusetts—all spoke out against Trump regarding the terrible conditions of border detention facilities.

The thing is … all four of the women are American citizens!

Ocasio-Cortez was born and raised in New York City, just like Trump, while Tlaib was born in Detroit and Pressley is from Cincinnati.

Omar, meanwhile, was born in Somalia, but her family fled the country when she was a child, and she became a U.S. citizen in 2000.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has had her own issues with the aforementioned congresswomen recently, didn’t appreciate being brought into Trump’s mess, and defended her comrades calling Trump’s tweets “xenophobic comments meant to divide our nation.”

“When [Donald Trump] tells four American Congresswomen to go back to their countries, he reaffirms his plan to ‘Make America Great Again’ has always been about making America white again,” she wrote. “Our diversity is our strength and our unity is our power.”

New York Mayor and presidential hopeful Bill de Blasio also chimed in, saying on CNN that “unfortunately, there’s an American tradition of telling people to go back to where they came from” and Trump was just trying to “gin up his base” as part of his goal to “make America hate again.”

The women targeted in Trump’s tweets also responded to the overly tanned wannabe tyrant’s racist rant:

And from there, the #RacistInChief hashtag was born, with Twitter collectively calling out Trump for his divisive antics:

Honestly, at this point, anyone who agrees with, supports or defends Donald Trump is clearly a racist.

Boonk Gang Suffers Broken Jaw & Loses Several Teeth After Video Shows Him Getting Punched in the Face

Boonk Gang is on the road to recovery after getting punched in the face so hard that he broke his jaw in two different places and lost several teeth.

The social media star, known for his controversial pranks and shenanigans, has been laying low recently and keeping off the scene after he allegedly shot himself last year and got into a fight with a videographer on the set of a music video.

He even changed his name to John Gabbana and started rapping to try and prove that he was headed down a new path.

But new footage recently surfaced on the internet showing the social media star back into some drama and getting a beat down from a man almost half his size.

The video doesn’t show what leads up to the incident, but you can clearly see Boonk running away after being struck hard by the shorter man.

Boonk ended up suffering a broken jaw on both sides from the encounter and posted a series of graphic videos showing him prior to undergoing surgery for his injuries.

Boonk’s injuries were pretty tough too — he says he lost some teeth, and his mouth looked bloodied up bad.

“They broke both sides of my jaw but guess what I did !?” he captioned a video on Instagram showing off the damage to his mouth.

“They knocked out most of my teeth bruh with that cheap shit bruh,” he wrote on another clip.

Whatever Boonk said or did to that short man was obviously very serious for him to get hit that hard! He better leave these folks out here alone LOL.

YNW Melly Reaches Out to Chris Brown to Work on New Music While Awaiting Double Murder Trial

YNW Melly has no doubt in his mind that he will be coming home soon.

Despite the rapper currently fighting a double murder case and facing the death penalty, Melly appears to have no worries and even has his eyes set on a collaboration with Chris Brown.

Melly apparently had his management team reach out to Chris via social media because a comment from Melly’s account appeared on one of Brown’s recent Instagram posts.

“Let’s do a song CB,” Melly commented along with a snake and heart emoji under a video Chris posted.

Melly’s attempt to get Chris Brown to do a track with him comes just a day after he was seen during a court hearing smiling and laughing with his legal team. The hearing was over Melly adding new lawyers to his defense team.

The “Murder on My Mind” rapper was arrested back in February and charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

According to police, YNW Melly (whose real name is Jamell Demons) and another member of his entourage YNW Bortlen (real name: Cortlen Henry) killed two of their friends and staged the crime to make it look like a drive-by shooting.

Authorities have also stated they have forensic evidence that proves Melly was the one who shot and killed his friends YNW Sakchaser (Anthony Williams) and YNW Juvy (Christopher Thomas Jr.) while YNW Bortlen helped him cover up the crime.

Melly, who pleaded not guilty to the murder charges in the shooting death of his friends, is also a suspect in the 2017 murder of a Florida police officer.

YNW Melly and Chris Brown on a track sounds like a dope idea, but I’m not sure if it would be in the best interest of Chris Brown associating with someone with this type of drama going on.

Former Arizona Teacher Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison for Molesting 13-Year-Old Student

A former teacher in Arizona was sentenced to 20 years in prison Friday (Jul. 13) after pleading guilty to molesting a 13-year-old student.

28-year-old Brittany Zamora made headlines last year when she was arrested for molesting one student and potentially grooming another.

Prosecutors said Zamora and the 13-year-old boy had sex multiple times in her car and her classroom at La Brisas Academy in Goodyear.

The two even touched each other sexually in the middle of a class while the other students were watching a video, completely oblivious to what was going on.

Investigators said a second boy, age 11, witnessed Zamora having sex with the 13-year-old, and Zamora also showed naked photos to both boys and would ask them “sexual questions.”

“Ms. Zamora lures these boys, earns their trust and then takes advantage of them purely to fill her own sexual desires,” the mother of the 11-year-old boy said in court. “She used her position of power to molest a child. She’s a pedophile and no different than if a man were sitting in her place right now.”

The 13-year-old student’s parents called Zamora a “twisted monster” in a statement read aloud by their lawyer.

“He will miss out on so many important emotions and feelings when it comes to relationships with women for the rest of his life—all because his trust was betrayed by his sixth-grade school teacher,” the parents wrote in a victim impact statement.

As part of a plea deal, Zamora pleaded guilty in June to sexual conduct with a minor, attempted molestation of a minor and public sexual indecency.

She had been charged with 15 felony counts, including eight counts of sexual misconduct, and a number of other charges.

The 20 years Zamora received was the lowest possible sentence for her crime, with the maximum being 44 years. She’ll be on probation for the rest of her life and will have to register as a sex offender.

Zamora apologized in court and shed a few tears at her sentencing, calling herself “a good genuine person who made a mistake and regrets it deeply.”

She added: “I lived my life respecting and trying to obey every law. I’m not a threat to society.”

Maricopa County Prosecutor Lacey Fisher said the only reason Zamora stopped was because she got caught.

“If a (parent) hadn’t discovered what was happening, there’s little doubt there would have been more victims in the defendant’s considerable wake,” Fisher said.

Inside the courtroom, Zamora’s defense lawyer, Belen Guerra, told reporters that his client is a “great candidate” for rehabilitation. “She wants to change her life and she’s already started that,” he said.

But outside, in a press conference held shortly after the sentencing, Guerra placed the blame on the 13-year-old boy, implying that he’s the one who seduced Zamora, and she emphasized the fact that he’s technically a teenager, even though the legal age of consent in Arizona is 17.

Guerra also accused the school’s principal of ignoring Zamora’s repeated requests to move the boy to another class because he had “boundary issues” and was “obsessed” with his teacher.

Russ Richelsoph, an attorney for the 13-year-old student’s dad and stepmom, told The Arizona Republic they were shocked by Guerra’s comments.

“To go into court and argue a client is remorseful during a sentencing hearing and to hold a press conference hours later blaming it on the victim indicates she’s not truly remorseful,” Richelsoph said.

“Her statement today just punctuates the fact that she has an attitude toward children that is dangerous and makes her a danger to society.”

Soulja Boy Released From Jail 146 Days Early for Good Behavior

#FreeDrako is finally backwards. Soulja Boy is officially a free man after spending a little over 90 days in jail.

Though the rapper was originally sentenced back in April to 240 days for violating his probation, and wasn’t supposed to get out until sometime in December, TMZ reports he was granted an early release (146 days early to be exact) due to a number of things, including time served, overcrowding and good behavior.

This comes after prosecutors rejected Soulja Boy’s kidnapping case due to lack of evidence.

Looks like 2019 is being very kind to Young Drako.
