    Like the jive story that Sophia Stewart had won her case and the foolishness about Muslim terrorists plotting to blow up the Pyramids of Giza (as if they could be blown up), gets around and distracts!

    And I am guilty of posting the Jay Z , Kanya, etc boycott post without cross referencing with at least four other non blog news sites, for the info!

    Huffington post now has released it was sprurious;
    Florida Boycott List That Included Kanye, Jay Z, Alicia Keys Discredited

    The Huffington Post | By Kia Makarechi Posted: 07/23/2013 4:36 pm EDT | Updated: 07/23/20

    Representatives for a number of artists on a purported list of musicians and performers boycotting the state of Florida in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict said Tuesday that their clients have never heard of or been contacted about the list.
    American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan first reported the list -- which includes heavyweights like Justin Timberlake, Jay Z, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Madonna and more -- on Monday and credited it to "sources close to the Stevie Wonder camp." The Huffington Post linked to Ryan's list and noted at the time that representatives for artists were being contacted. Late Monday night, HuffPost sources revealed that Rihanna was not involved, despite being named. MotherJones received word that the Rolling Stones -- who also appear on the list -- had never heard of such a campaign.
    Additional representatives on Tuesday confirmed to HuffPost that other boldface names on the the list were not involved, but declined to identify their clients on the record. Denials reached a critical mass that began to shed serious doubt on the

    there is no unity. we have been poisoned by 'do your own thing'.
    black people are too fragmented to mount an effective boycott.

    Brother Alarm Clock ... this is honorable of you ... to make the correction ... thank you!

    Most "news" we share is what someone else told us, what we heard, read, etc.

    Few provide eye-witness accounts or have resources to verify beyond reasonable doubt.

    In this day and time ... it's problee best to leave a little room for ... it may not be true.

    Good Look'n Out! :toast:

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Yes it is because I don't see why they are not on it. West gets on TV and says that bush don't like black people, well show his luv for black people and get on the list....But he did say this before he got with becky.

    Peace!
