Meeting genuine, passionate and successful people is part of what I love about my job. Hosting @mbrown_beauty & @stephclairesmith was a delight 😍 @karrinyup_sc #karrinyupss17 VIP Shopping Day. Loved my cute outfits by @bardot too 💕
Two managers out the door in League Two, as @officialpvfc and @chesterfieldfc part company with Michael Brown and Gary Caldwell respectively.
Brown leaves Vale Park following a run of seven league games without a win, and oversaw Vale's relegation to League Two at the end of last season. His former assistant managers David Kelly and Chris Morgan have been placed in interim charge, with the club bottom of the table with just 4 points.
Meanwhile Scotsman Caldwell, 35, is removed from his post by The Spireites after 8 months in charge. Caldwell also oversaw his side's relegation to the fourth tier after being appointed back in January. Chesterfield sit second bottom of the division, with Director of Recruitment and Development Guy Branston taking charge as caretaker boss.

Image repost from @lbphotography1 #currently in #STL 😔😞decades later and nothing has changed. #michaelbrown and nothing has changed. #AnthonyLamarSmith was murdered in cold, premeditated hatred. Maybe, I thought, just maybe in my lifetime...the city that made me would evolve and it hasn't. #blacklivesmatter period. I don't care right now about professionalism when it comes to healthcare professionals and social media BC as an aspiring MD, all healthcare professionals should value life and be agents of its sustenance to their best abilities no matter the sociological/biological title....FIRST DO NO HARM.... If this verdict and all the other acquittals of cops using their badges for hatred and murder doesn't piss you off, we can't vibe. Injustice should twinge your soul in sadness and anger of you have one. Today is the 54th anniversary of the Birmingham church bombing, would have been the 27th bday of #freddiegray and today another precious black life was treated as if it never existed. Please don't come at me with nonsense. I'm not the one today.....or ever for that reason. How many damn bodies have to line the streets? #institutionalizedracism is REAL AND it harms the lives of #POC EVERY DAMN DAY. And it's in the courthouses, legislation, cop cars, churches, workplace, hospitals and schools. So anyone down to act as if this is untrue or not happening, I THINK U SHOULD CLICK THAT UNFOLLOW BUTTON OR STOP CREEPING. Period. #sayhisname#sayhername#philandocastile#altonsterling#sandrabland#charleenalyles#tamirrice#trayvonmartin#jordanedwards#ericgarner
Again, power attracts the worst & corrupts the best. Unfortunately, this will continue to happen until we stop granting power so easily to uneducated racists that dropped out of college, lack social skills & have 0 empathy or cultural understanding. Our justice system is failing & those defending my rights should be held to higher standards, have higher levels of cultural awareness & most importantly, hold a higher level of education. Why are we "training" & arming fools? Seeing people in my city come together in solidarity brings me joy, but at the same time it's like seeing the previews to a movie we don't want to watch again. I'm really tired of this shit & I'm angry. #BLACKLIVESMATTER#LamarAnthonySmith#STL#MichaelBrown#StLouis#BLM#Justice ? #MyCity
🛑🛑🛑‼️⁉️ Stop right there... literally got these emails last night in my Nextdoor app. Apparently he made one and felt he needed to change the physical build from "skinny" to BLACK?!?! WHAT IS THIS FILTH???? •
Let me just explain, one of the many functions of this app is to REPORT crimes that you've EXPERIENCED so you can warn others. Not say someone "looks like the type of person who would steal someone's car." Not to report racist ideals and share your phobias. I'm sorry, did y'all forget what Nicholas Cage looked like, cause this dude is the protagonist in Gone In 60 Seconds so just saying...
When it's written out like this, can't you SEE how wrong this is? Shoes and skin do not a criminal make. My heart hurts for people whose minds work this way, that you are so ingrained with ignorance, interlaced with the fabric of your soul that you must spread your fear and hatred due to survival instincts. My heart hurts for the innocent that you condemn with your eyes, if only you were blind, and deaf from societies lies. And you wonder why this creates sighs, because they continue to fight for their lives. Black Lives Matter. #blm
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou
What's "just politics" for those of us with privilege is life and death for countless others. Act accordingly.
Deadline reports that #AMC is looking to adapt the book "They Can't Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice" by Wesley Lowrey.
"Published in 2016 by Little, Brown & Company, the book was acquired by Makeready last fall. It examines how decades of racially biased policing in segregated neighborhoods with failing schools, crumbling infrastructure and too few jobs has led to the high-profile cases of police brutality in Ferguson, Cleveland, Baltimore and elsewhere and the birth of #BlackLivesMatter movement seeking justice for the deaths of #MichaelBrown , #TamirRice and #FreddieGray ." LaToya Morgan (#IntoTheBadlands , #Turn : Washington’s Spies) will write and executive produce.
As we approach Day 1 of Production on #TheHateUGive I've been reflecting on the liberation of my mind... these pictures are from 2014, when Amandla and I went to one of the first #BlackLivesMatter marches in LA not long after #EricGarner and #MichaelBrown were murdered. I have a lot to say that can't be expressed in an Instagram caption but in short: I feel very humbled by the power of this project. The Hate U Give is a game changer. It reminds me how much I have to learn and how much privilege I have. It reminds me that I need to use this privilege to speak and act against injustice inflicted on POC as well as know when I need to shut up and step aside.
Keep an eye out for this film in 2018.
BLACK AND SUSPENDED
Currently, there are 50.7M students enrolled in K-12 Public Schools (National Center For Education Statistics, 2017). 1) There are 24.4M White students, 8.0 Black students, 13.6M Hispanic students, 2.8 Asian/Pacific Islander students, 0.5M American Indian/Alaskan students, and 1.5M two or more races enrolled across these grade levels (National Center For Education Statistics, 2017). 2) However, Toppo (2016) found that for the school year 2014-2015, that Black students were 4x likely to be suspended from school than were their white counterparts. 3) The below chart by Klein (2015) shows the States that suspends Black students the most, using 2011-2012 secondary schools data. 4) Specifically, Klein (2015) found that 2 public school districts in #Missouri alone accounts for the most suspensions of Black students in the nation, with #Normandy suspending 50% of its Black students, which is the district, that #MichaelBrown attended, who was fatally shot by a cop in 2015. 5) Klein (2015) found that students that were suspended across the nation, lost an estimated 18M days of instruction. 6) While, students being suspended within Secondary schools is a major concern because it pushes them directly into the criminal justice system (Klein, 2015), there is a problem within Elementary schools for Black students. 6) Klein found that #Florida , 19% and #Alabama , #Mississippi , and #SoutCarolina are at 16% suspend their students the most, and because Black people still reside in the South and in urban areas,I suspect being handed the lion's share of suspensions, are Black students. 7) UNACCEPTABLE!
Throwback to hosting the gorgeous @oraclefox @karrinyup_sc Spring Summer VIP Day in 2015! Tomorrow I'll be chatting with @stephclairesmith and @mbrown_beauty from 11 and 1:30 - how exciting! 💐#KarrinyupSS17
As the NFL season is upon us I must admit it feels weird to NOT care..I've been a die hard fan since age 6 but I care more about the treatment of our Black and Brown ppl than I do my own entertainment. I'm choosing NOT to watch the NFL or anything related to it as they've shown how they feel about the KILLING OF BLACK MEN! You can criticize Kaepernick for how he chose to protest and brag about your false "patriotism" (Black ppl were slaves when the anthem was written but hey) but if you stand for what's right..then there should be no debate. Now...I'm not asking you to understand, support or agree with my stance, plenty of ppl whose opinions I value have told me it's pointless bc it won't change anything or challenged me by asking what other companies am I boycotting. To them I say, stand up for something or fall for anything. I coach/mentor hundreds of young men who look like myself and it's important for them to see that you can't be afraid to stand up for those without a voice, which is what Kaep did. As a half white/half black millionaire raised by a white adoptive family, he had no reason to stand up but he did...in our era we're always trying to find fault with the messengers instead of listening to the message. MLK had his infidelity probs yet there's a day named for him; because what he fought for was true...I know this is a super long post but I have a lot of thoughts to express and this is important. Unless you think its cool what happened to #EricGarner#TamirRice#FreddieGray#PhilandoCastile#SandraBland#KeithScott#TerenceCrutcher#MichaelBrown then there's only 1 side to stand on..
Btw, ZERO jail time for those officers involved #StandwithKaep#NONFL#fistUP#powertothepeople#ProudBlackMan
Here is my latest project. It's currently called 'Untitled'. I wanted to bring in two things that are portrayed negatively according to the media. Hip Hop and the African American culture. I combined the two to show what beauty lies between the two.
This post is for those of you who think all Rich Athletes get better treatment from the Cops than us regular folk... Read it in its entirety... I stand in solidarity with Michael Bennett @mosesbread72. Blessings to you Sir for continuing to being a leader in your community and having the gumption to stand up for your beliefs and most importantly speak out on them especially when so many others in your field, pardon the pun, choose to remain mute
As for this "incident" it is all too common. Far too often as #BlackMen we are judged before we even say a word. And please, miss me with the "they need to be trained better" narrative. If there is Hate in someone's heart, there is NO training for that pariah. That takes healing and other theraputic measures. If you see me as inferior or inhumane then the issue is with you and your misguided feelings of superiority. And that goes for those crooked #Cops as well. Taxpayer dollar paid, salaried, public officials discrimination is the lowest level of degradation in the world. Which is why I will continue to use my mouth, my voice, my words, my pen, my keyboard, my bullhorn, my microphone, and unequivocally my clenched Black Fist to fight for my rights and the rights of those who face opposition from the status quo... Sounding off... And signing off... Until next time...
I ask that you take the time to read Michaels letter. Now it's not only random strangers but your NFL team's player that is being threatened and terrified due to a difference in amount of melanin (a biologically advantageous trait in certain areas of the world to protect the human body). I am not as dark as these victims but I feel the fear and the frustration; and this isn't a selfish desire to i the threatened but I fear for my dad constantly. I constantly fear answering a call from my mom and being told my dad is gone because he was picked out of the crowd for his skin color and abused. If you haven't noticed what is happening in our country you need to open up your eyes and ears and pay attention. @mosesbread72 @kaepernick7 thanks for using your status to speak out #ericgarner#michaelbrown#travyonmartin#tamirrice#charleenalyles
