Washington DC Teenager Killed Over Air Jordan Sneakers

The madness continues. A 17 year-old student had his life ended abruptly in what seems to be over a pair of sneakers.

According to a report by The Washington Post, James Anthony Smith was gifted his Christmas present early by his mother. Benita Smith purchased him a pair of red Air Jordan 11 sneakers for $ 220.00 dollars. Apparently, the shoes would cost him his life four days later.

On Monday, December 18 Police say an unidentified gunman shot the Ballou High School sophomore on the basketball court of the Frederick Douglass Community Center in Garfield Heights. He was found a block away with his shoes missing shortly before 6PM.

“He was an all-American kid” his mother stated. “He loved his red shoes. He loved basketball. He loved his computer games. I can’t believe he was killed, all over a pair of shoes.” DCPD believe the shoes were the motive saying they “tentatively think it may have been a robbery.”

Currently there are no suspects in the case. Prayers go out to the family.

Sleepy Hollow’s most famous supernatural phenomenon is the ghost of the Headless Horseman, said to be a Hessian soldier who lost his head to a cannon ball during the Revolutionary War. The Horseman is seen most often riding by the church, where local historians say he was buried. He is believed to be always in search of his head. Ichabod is fascinated by this story, being especially interested (and prone to believe) in tales of the supernatural.

Kerry Washington: ‘There’s No Excuse’ To Skip Wearing Sunscreen

“Black people don’t get get sunburned.”
“Dark skin is a natural SPF.”
“Sunscreen is just for the beach.”

These are just a few of the myths that lead people to make bad decisions that place them at a much higher risk for developing skin cancer. Those myths have been debunked, but that’s not stopping Kerry Washington from going one step further to help inform people about protecting their skin.

“There have been a lot of misconceptions, particularly in communities of color, that because you have melanin in your skin, you don’t need to protect it,” the “Scandal” actress told The Huffington Post Monday.

Washington has teamed up with Neutrogena for the brand’s skin cancer prevention campaign, Choose Skin Health, which will donate a product with SPF to a family in need every time a customer purchases a Neutrogena product that contains SPF during the months of May, June and July.

While skin cancer comprises only one to two percent of all cancers among African-Americans, recent findings by the Skin Cancer Foundation conclude that the overall average five-year melanoma survival rate for black peoples is only 75 percent, compared to 93 percent for white people.

“The statistic that is most alarming to me is that there are more new cases of skin cancer every year than breast, prostate, lung and colon combined,” said Washington. “The fact that skin cancer is preventable, that there are things that we can do and that is still the case, really just speaks to the lack of information.”

That’s why Washington advocates for getting regular skin screenings and applying sunscreen on a daily basis. “In my house, we all wear sunscreen … I feel like the technology is such that there’s no excuse, whether you’re looking for something that can go under your foundation or you’re looking for something to put on your kids because they’re running around the pool,” she said. “You know whatever your needs are, there is a product that can meet that need.”

The 38-year-old said she prefers dry touch sunscreen lotions like the stick version of Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer. “It doesn’t spill. It’s such an easy product,” she added. For her daughter, Isabelle, Washington opts for Pure & Free sunscreen.

Head over to Neutrogena.com to learn about the company’s buy one, donate one program.

Obama Rips CNN, Speaks On Detained Washington Post Journalist Jason Rezaian

President Barack Obama ruthlessly joked about CNN during his speech at the 2015 White House Correspondents’ dinner on Saturday in Washington, D.C.

Commending WHCD host Cecily Strong, Obama said it was notable that Strong impersonates CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

“Usually the only people impersonating journalists on CNN are journalists at CNN,” Obama said.

On a more serious note, Obama spoke about Jason Rezaian, The Washington Post Tehran bureau chief who’s been imprisoned in Iran since July 2014. Obama said “we will not rest” until Rezaian is released from prison and returned to the U.S.

Obama also mentioned James Foley and Steven Sotloff, two journalists who were executed by the Islamic State this year.

Rezaian’s brother Ali attended Saturday’s dinner as a guest of The Washington Post.

Isaiah Washington: Chris Rock’s Tweets About Getting Pulled Over Are Like Shouting ‘Fire In The Theater’

Isaiah Washington thinks Chris Rock owes his social media followers a more in-depth explanation of the selfie he posted when he was pulled over by the police for the third time in less than seven weeks.

After Rock’s photo went viral, Washington spoke out on Twitter by saying Rock should “adapt,” apparently by following in the footsteps of Washington, who wrote that he traded in his Mercedes for three Toyota Priuses because he “got tired of being pulled over by police.” Washington told “The HuffPost Show” on Friday that his tweets were “tongue-in-cheek in a way” with a hint of “truth in jest,” but he was met with outrage online.

“Black Twitter went crazy because in the real life, how can you adapt to racial profiling?” Washington said.

But the “Blackbird” actor told hosts Roy Sekoff and Marc Lamont Hill that he’d like to hear what happened when Rock actually spoke to the cops who pulled him over. Washington said:

He never responded. To this day, we don’t know what happened on that third [stop] in seven weeks. We still don’t know from Chris Rock to this day what happened. You can’t have 3 million followers and come out there and press the button — that’s like saying right now … “There’s a bomb on a plane or a fire in the theater,” and then say, “Hey, I’ve been stopped three times,” and then you don’t give us the update on how you got out of it.

Denzel Washington Drawn Into Controversial Sony Leak

Denzel Washington is the latest name revealed in a series of Sony emails that have recently been leaked to the media. The series of leaks have been especially embarrassing to the studio, as it was revealed numerous artists and celebrities were slandered in the emails.

Those slammed include Kevin Hart who was called a “whore” and President Obama who Sony producers sent emails about joking “Should I ask him if he liked Django Unchained?” “12 Years a Slave. Or the butler. Or think like a man?”

Now a new email sent from a producer to Sony chairman Michael Lynton indicates the studio felt a Black lead could hurt the chances of a film’s longtime success.

Conversations leaked from the latest hack:

“I am not saying The Equalizer should not have been made or that African American actors should not have been used (I personally think Denzel Washington is the best actor of his generation.”

“I believe that the international motion picture audience is racist – in general pictures with an African American lead don’t play well overseas.”

“But Sony sometimes seems to disregard that a picture must work well internationally to both maximise returns and reduce risk, especially pictures with decent size budgets.”

[Also Read: Kevin Hart responds to Sony exec that called him a “whore.”]

THE WASHINGTON TREATY BREAKERS

You don’t hear much about the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. And that, my friends, is a good thing. Usually this federal office is as controversial as parsley wrapped celery. On a one to 10 scale of boring, patent law has to rate about a 3,000. That’s normally. But today this obscure agency has thrown football fans into raging fits. Real football. Where guys in helmets use their hands to throw or carry some spheroid object. Not faux football, where athletes direct a round ball with their feet.

In a two to one ruling, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board stripped the Washington Redskins of six trademark registrations after concluding the football team’s name was disparaging to Native Americans, and thus in violation of laws banning offensive language. Although to many Americans it’s the locational part of the name that is most repugnant. Especially those Americans known to party with cups of tea.

The USPTO made a similar ruling back in 1999, but it was overturned, and may very well be again. Because as we all know, the government is fond of doing the same thing over and over and over again. Expecting different results.

Conservatives fear this kind of political correctness will snowball, causing many nicknames to be spurned. For instance: should the Pittsburgh Pirates be compelled to switch their name because it’s offensive to families who have been pillaged? The Green Bay Packers due to folks harboring nightmares concerning broken lamps? The commissioners could forestall this movement by declaring all sports teams be named after marsupials.

What about the Fighting Irish? Does anybody really think that drunken Leprechauns with fists cocked are responsible role models for today’s university students? The Utah Jazz is an odious appellation to anybody possessing a modicum of musical taste. And the name of the state of Oklahoma is Choctaw for red people. Should they be forced to repeal their name or can we just get rid of the state altogether?

How about individuals? Doesn’t the same logic mandate that anybody named Manson or Hitler alter their name so as not to remind victims’ relatives of their grisly crimes? Adolf? Charlie? What about Bush? Clinton? Kardashian?

And if Daniel Snyder, the owner of the 3rd most valuable NFL franchise, according to Forbes Magazine, does cave to the rising cries of boycott, which direction will he head? Reportedly, the team has already filed for the trademark of Washington Warriors, but that doesn’t really distill the essence of the town. The Senators won’t work. Baseball tried and it depressed the players so much the team was forced to move. Twice.

He could capture the true spirit of the town with… the Washington Slippery Slopes. The Ethical Sliders. Corrupters. Prevaricators. The Hogs works and even has sentimental ties.

If you want intimidating, how bout the Washington Lobbyists? The Patent Lawyers. Under Secretaries. The Filibusterers. The Kickbacks has a vague football feel. The Mindless Horde. The Red Inks wouldn’t necessitate the need to buy new letters for the stadium exterior.

But, if honoring the proud indigenous nations of America is, as the team claims, the actual goal, how about the Washington Treaty Breakers. Or the Plague Blankets- which is pretty damn scary. And finally, to keep the natural rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys intact- the Washington Barbed Wires.
