#BankBlack After the shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, Blacks have united to make their economic voice heard and prove that Black money matters. A campaign to get Blacks to abandon traditional banks and move their money to Black owned banks has been spreading across the country like wildfire. Celebrities like Beyonce, Solange, Rapper Killer Mike, Jessie Williams, Alicia Keys and Queen Latifah have joined the movement and are urging Blacks to #BankBlack. The largest Black owned bank in the country, OneUnited Bank says since the movement started, they’ve see over $3million dollars deposited into accounts. OneUnited Bank President Teri Williams says “it is critical for the Black community to utilize our $1.2 trillion in annual spending power to create jobs and build wealth in our community.” If you want to participate or learn more go to oneunited.com or oneunitedbank on Facebook.
Trump’s Wall Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it. Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy seem to take off with his proposal of building a wall to keep immigrants out. Well, somebody decided to build that wall around his star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. A street artist who goes by the name of Plastic Jesus is taking credit for the six-inch high wall…you can even download pictures of his display on his website. The wall is complete with barbed wire on top, U.S. flags and keep out signs. The witty wall builder is just the latest person to focus attention on Trump’s star. U.S. Uncut.com reported months ago that vandalism at Trump’s star has been issue. The report says people are constantly spray painting, defacing or allowing their animals to use the bathroom on the star.
Staff Writer says she stole Michelle Obama’s Speech NBC is reporting that a woman claiming to be Trump writer and volunteer Meredith McIver says she is to blame for Melania Trump’s plagiarized speech that ripped off First Lady Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech. McIver supposedly issued a statement on Trump letterhead saying, ” my mistake”. While such an admission by the Trump camp would be a big deal especially since the day after the speech, Trump and his people denied there was any plagiarism, how real is this McIver person. She is reportedly a 65-year old woman who has worked for Trump a long time. And he’s even talked about in previous interviews. But A Twitter account using the name Meredith McIver that was just established in July 2016 is full of questionable posts. That twitter page is also full of obviously photoshopped pics. (see below and to left)The page could have been set up for trolling purposes. If the Twitter page is a joke, then how real is that apology?
