What has our integrity been reduced to these days? The dreadful act of “trapping” a man by lying to him about pregnancy is not the way to win your prince charming. As for the lady who came up with this pathetic idea, you make all women look bad. I feel sorry that her kids have a mother who is motivated by this kind of thinking. It’s no wonder what types of values and beliefs she is teaching her children. I am absolutely sick to my stomach. Continue reading Women Sales Positive Pregnancy Test on Facebook for $50
From series host Janks Morton: “We need to take a moment and celebrate this historic achievement. CNN won’t cover this, FOX News definitely has no interest. If we do not begin to share our own stories, uplift and elevate our own accomplishments, then we are destined to continually see reruns of “Good Times”, Ignorant and Vile Rappers, denigrating reality shows and numerous other skewed portrayals of modern era Black Identity, further narrowing the perceptions of African Americans as the disproportionate exhibitors of least desirable behaviors in this society.” Sources: Department of Education National Center for Education Statistics IPEDS Data Center … Continue reading Truths You Wont Believe- Black Women Defying Sterotypes
was really the 8th President of the United States!
George Washington was not the first President of the United States. In fact, the first President of the United States was one John Hanson. Don’t go checking the encyclopedia for this guy’s name – he is one of those great men that are lost to history. If you’re extremely lucky, you may actually find a brief mention of his name.
The new country was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation.
This document was actually proposed on June 11, 1776, but not agreed upon by Congress until November 15, 1777. Maryland refused to sign this document until Virginia and New York ceded their western lands (Maryland was afraid that these states would gain too much power in the new government from such large amounts of land).
Once the signing took place in 1781, a President was needed to run the country. John Hanson was chosen unanimously by Congress (which included George Washington). In fact, all the other potential candidates refused to run against him, as he was a major player in the revolution and an extremely influential member of Congress.
As the first President, Hanson had quite the shoes to fill. No one had ever been President and the role was poorly defined. His actions in office would set precedent for all future Presidents.
He took office just as the Revolutionary War ended. Almost immediately, the troops demanded to be paid. As would be expected after any long war, there were no funds to meet the salaries. As a result, the soldiers threatened to overthrow the new government and put Washington on the throne as a monarch.
All the members of Congress ran for their lives, leaving Hanson as the only guy left running the government. He somehow managed to calm the troops down and hold the country together. If he had failed, the government would have fallen almost immediately and everyone would have been bowing to King Washington. In fact, Hanson sent 800 pounds of sterling silver by his brother Samuel Hanson to George Washington to provide the troops with shoes.
Joyce Vincent was 41 years old when she was found dead in her UK home, but she was 38 when she died. For three years, from 2003-2006, her body lay surrounded by Christmas gifts she was planning to wrap; the television still on. How does this happen? Especially to a woman who was social, who two-years prior had a high-powered job at Ernst and Young, who had rubbed elbows with celebrities, and who wanted to get married? That’s what documentary filmmaker Carol Morley set to find out. But her new film, “Dreams of a Life,” is about more than just … Continue reading Dead 3 Years and No One Notices
Do you have any 3rd graders in your life? If they’re anything like the little 8-year-old girls I know, they are probably playing with My Little Ponies and Polly Pockets, going to school, listening to One Direction, and painting their fingernails (out on the back porch so as not to get nail polish all over the house).
Because that is the life of 8-year-old girls in America.
In many Islamic countries, however, 8-year-old girls are donning fancy white dresses and going to get married to adult men. (see author’s note below)

Posted on August 9th, 2013 – By Bossip Staff Even Oprah isn’t immune to racism. Sadly the billionaire media mogul says she was discriminated against while shopping at a pricy boutique in Zurich while in town for Tina Turner’s wedding, all because the dummy working inside “assumed” a black woman wouldn’t be able to afford to purchase a $38K bag. Via MailOnline reports: A top store in Switzerland has apologized to Oprah Winfrey – one of the richest women in the world – for refusing to let her look at a bag because the shop assistant presumed she couldn’t afford … Continue reading Race Matters: Oprah Says Assistant In Swiss Store Refused To Let Her Peruse A Pricy Handbag Telling Her “It Was Too Expensive”
