Black Friday Violence

Call it Black-eye Friday. Black Friday brawls broke out all over the country starting on Thanksgiving. Shoppers fought at a Louisville, Ky., mall on Thanksgiving night, wrestling each other to the ground in a packed food court.

The fracas knocked a woman to the floor as shoppers at Mall St. Matthews gawked at the sight of two unidentified men slapping, punching and tearing at each other’s shirts. A police officer broke up the fight, as shown in video capturing at least 30 seconds of the melee. It’s unclear who or what sparked the fight or if the assailants will face criminal charges.

At least one participant in the fight was shown being ushered out of the food court by his friends. He made sure to pick up a shopping bag he had dropped on the floor. In addition, A fight video circulated on social media early Friday showing a scuffle between a group of men at a mall in Florence, Ky.

A shooter wounded one person who was left with non-life threatening injuries outside an Alexandria, La., mall on Thursday night, but local authorities quickly determined the attack had nothing to do with Black Friday. Big crowds drawn to Black Friday have drawn scrutiny for unruly behavior especially after the 2008 trampling death of a Walmart worker in Long Island.

Photos Of Jennifer Lopez And Family Black Friday Shopping


Jennifer Lopez and her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, were spotted getting into the Black Friday madness with some of their children in Los Angeles on November 29.

The Lopez-Rodriguez crew was seen shopping around in Gucci before taking to the streets of L.A. to head to a second destination, which looked to have more of a department store vibe. Maybe a visit to Saks Fifth Avenue or Neiman Marcus? Seems like where this clan would shop!


And naturally, the happily engaged couple was dressed to impress while they went out. Jennifer, 50, rocked a sleek, long black coat with a black turtleneck and leather pants. Alex, 44, matched his lady in a similar long, black coat with black pants and a shirt.

“He knows I only have his best interest at heart, and I only want him to thrive and succeed and to be his best self, “ she dished. “And I believe that he wants that for me. He wants me to be seen and to get what I deserve. Like, he’s made his half a billion. And he’s like, ‘I want you to have that.'

Gansta Marcus Gifts Daughter SUV For Thanksgiving


Now this is one Black Friday to remember for the daughter of Gansta Marcus. Just 3 months ago, the rapper enlisted a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica into his fleet wood of cars and now has gifted that to his first born.

Alexis is 19 years of age and on Black Friday (11/24/18) she received her licence by passing her Ohio driving test.

In his own words: "I want to make sure my family is strait or has a good start in life. Not only did I give my daughter a vehicle, I also put her on payment plans to teach her some responsibility. She wont even pay half of what I paid, its just a learning lesson that is necessary these days."

The 2007 Chrysler Pacifica's good looks, appealing performance and versatile interior make it a decent alternative for families uninterested in a minivan or traditional SUV.

The Chrysler Pacifica is a four-door six-passenger family hauler that’s offered in either Base model, Touring or Limited trim levels, with the base model featuring a 3.8-liter V6 that produces 200 horsepower. "This is a great starter vehicle."

Congratulations Alexis

Did Donald Trump Call Blacks Stupid?


Donald Trump once claimed black people were "too stupid" to vote for him and regularly used explicitly racist language before coming into office, his former lawyer has claimed.

Source

Michael Cohen, who served as the president's lawyer and fixer for a decade, claimed he witnessed Mr Trump making derogatory comments about black people throughout the 2016 election campaign.

Cohen has publicly split from Mr Trump since he was charged with  campaign finance violations and tax fraud earlier this year. He pleaded guilty to several charges this summer, claiming he violated  election laws at the direction of Mr Trump, to pay a porn star in a hush money agreement.


Cohen further claimed that after Nelson Mandela's death, Mr Trump said "name one country run by a black person that's not a sh**hole". He added that Mr Trump once said his decision not to pick a black Harvard graduate on The Apprentice "there's no way I can let this black f*g win".

It is not the first time Mr Trump has been accused of racism. Earlier this year Mr Trump faced claims he had referred to African nations as "s*** hole countries".


It came after a week in which the US president amplified his hard-line stance on immigration, even suggesting American soldiers could open fire on a migrant caravan if its members threw rocks.

In an address from the White House on Thursday evening, Mr Trump said: "If they [migrants] want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back...I told them, consider it a rifle."

Mr Trump rowed back on the comments on Friday after former US generals, including a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, rebuked the idea and questioned the legality of such action.

RZA and GZA of Wu-Tang Talk 'The Game Of Life'


For as long as the two leaders of the Wu-Tang Clan have known each other, it still shocks GZA that he never played chess with RZA as a kid.


The pair are busy practicing this week for their Twitch debut on Saturday, where they will play and compete in a chess tournament hosted by Chess.com and Hennessy. It’s to benefit Black, Latinx and Asian small businesses struggling with the pandemic. GZA says he still remembers vividly to this day when his cousin taught his 9-year-old self how to play chess.


“I guess I remember it well because he had a black and red checkerboard, but the pieces were like clear plastic neon,” GZA tells The Washington Post in a video interview, who said he never forgot the lesson. “And they were weird colored, and they were caked in green. And he showed me the names of the pieces and how they moved.”

What's To Happen If US Arms Ukraine?

 


What will happen if the United States keeps arming Ukraine in this war. Russia has sent a formal diplomatic note to the Biden administration warning the U.S. against further arming Ukraine.


The note, sent to the State Department, revealed Moscow's irritation with President Biden's decision to continue to approve arms transfers as the conflict shifts to eastern Ukraine. It used the same type of language Russia has been using for some time to object to Western efforts to bolster the Ukrainian military against the invading Russian forces.

A Member Of Migos Shot

A member of +MigosATL Migosatl was shot. The band was scheduled to play at the nightclub Cafe Iguana in Pembroke Pines, but the show was canceled after some type of tif with management, and the group instead headed south in its Mercedes van before the altercation.

A member of the hip-hop trio Migos was shot in the leg early Friday morning during a shootout on I-95, while members of the band were heading back to their South Beach hotel. The van was heading south on I-95 some time after 3:30 a.m. with eight people in it when a black vehicle pulled alongside near the Northwest 62nd Street exit, and someone fired a weapon toward it.

Sanchez said someone in the van who was carrying a weapon returned fire. The only person hit was the band member, and the Mercedes traveled on to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where the shooting victim is recovering with non-life threatening injuries.
