Can you hate the actions of a celebrity but still love and support his or her work?

Alleged bad and questionable conduct by some prominent celebrities has dominated the airwaves of the past week. The conviction of Bill Cosby, allegations of mental and physical abuse by Nas, more sexual allegations against R. Kelly, bizarre rants from Kanye and the ever present Stormy Daniels saga have many of us picking sides and making excuses based on our personal affection for our favorite stars. Activists from the Me Too movement are even calling on radio stations to ban all music from R Kelly.


What’s Your Take? Can you hate the actions of a celebrity but still love and support his or her work?

Another tragic shooting claiming multiple lives and injuring others. Kudos to the brother that disarmed the shooter! Should the Waffle House shooting suspect’s father be charged for returning the weapons to his son after confiscation? On the political front or should I say behind the scenes ,a measure has been approved to repeal policies designed to protect minority discriminatory car loan practices. Can you list the “positive aspects” of slavery? Can you believe this was a homework assignment?

Do You Live In A Food Desert?

A food desert is defined as an area, especially one with low-income residents, that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food. Food deserts are characterized by a lack of supermarkets which decreases residents’ access to fruits, vegetables and other whole foods. Reportedly 23.5% of Americans live in a food desert, meaning that they live more than one mile from a supermarket in urban or suburban areas, and more than 10 miles from a supermarket in rural areas.

How about you, Is there a supermarket within five miles of your home?

Would MLK or Malcolm be effective in 2018?

50 years after the death of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, a new wave of young student activists have picked up the baton to lead protests against gun violence. While social media has served as an effective tool for groups like “Black Lives Matter”, why do you think that there has not been a single young African American leader to emerge in the past 40 years?

Would MLK or Malcolm be effective in 2018? Do we, as a people need a single leader in 2018?
