MJ sells out players with hard-line stance
by Jason Whitlock
Michael Jeffrey Jordan finally found a cause he can get behind off the court: being an obstacle for any black kid dreaming of matching or exceeding Jordan’s wealth.
A report says Michael Jordan has turned into the leader of a group of hard-line NBA owners.
And I don’t throw that word around liberally. But there’s no better description for Jordan now that he has reportedly decided to be the hard-line frontman for NBA ownership’s desire to rob NBA players of their fair share of the revenue the league generates.
Now that NBA superstars have decided to fully engage in the lockout negotiations and threaten union decertification, David Stern and ownership have decided to unleash their token minority owner from the house to play hardball.

Welcome to AT&T’s Internet
For the first time in history of telecommunications law the FCC has given its stamp of approval to online discrimination. Instead of a rule to protect Internet users’ freedom to choose, the Commission has opened the door for broadband payola – letting phone and cable companies charge steep tolls to favor the content and services of a select group of corporate partners, relegating everyone else to the cyber-equivalent of a winding dirt road.

SURE HOPE THIS ISNT TRUE BUT chances are that it is true.
Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson: No Black Girls On My Dating Show!
The drama with Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson’s VH1 reality dating show has already begun. They started filming “The Ultimate Catch” very recently, and we received an interesting letter from a contestant who has already been sent home.
Apparently, Mr. Ocho Cinco is not a fan of having black girls on his show. We received emails from both a contestant and an employee of the production company
stating that Chad is demanding that all the black girls be “cut”, except for 1. He wants to keep the Latina and brunette white girls who he says are “better” for him.
Here’s the email we received from one of the contestants Chad conveniently sent home early on after she made Top 30:read more
