Crazy! Jesse williams's BetAwards speech racist???? , some think it is, do you? However read story below
Over 1,00 sign petition to fire Jesse williams from Grey Anatomy
The petition which was started by Eric Williams on Change.org asked to have actor/activist Jesse Williams fired from the show Grey's Anatomy stating his speech at the BET awards was "racist" and a "hate speech" against law enforcement and white people at the BET awards. The petition, has garnered about 1,796 signatures
The petition states:
"Jesse Williams spewed a racist, hate speech against law enforcement and white people at the BET awards. If this was a white person making the same speech about an African American, they would have been fired and globally chastised, as they should be, but there has been no consequences to Williams’ actions. There’s been no companies making a stand against his racist remarks and no swift action condemning his negative attitude. Why was Burke’s character fired from Grey’s Anatomy after his inappropriate homophobic slur, but nothing for Jesse Williams? Why the one-way street? Why the support for a hater? Why the hypocrisy? #AllLivesMatter All humans bleed the same color. #EqualConsequences4RacistBehavior” **A special note to all the people making assumptions: Who said I was white? Who said I'm a Trump supporter? This is not about politics. This is about equal consequences for racist behavior. If this was an Asian, Mexican, Caucasian or whoever saying the same exact words as Jesse Williams did, I would be against it and petitioned them to be fired if they did not suffer the same consequences as others have suffered for their irrational behavior. We're all human. Why not act that way? Instead of lashing out with immature and obnoxious name calling, do something about getting everyone to look at everyone in the same light. Make a difference! A counter-petition has over 17,000 signatures.
Fuel Scarcity looms in Nigeria again
There is something seriously wrong with the country! as Association of senior oil and Gas workers are set to goon strike July 7
In a memo dated July 4, 2016 and addressed to all zonal and branch chairmen and secretaries, the body directed members to embark on gradual withdrawal of services from their various offices, sites and production facilities from Thursday. The union cited the inability of the Federal Government to honour agreements contained in a May 12, 2016 communiqué as the reason for calling for the strike.Paul Pogba could Join Manchester United Paul Pogba will join Manchester United only if his first choice of Real Madrid proves impossible, with José Mourinho’s hopes of securing the France midfielder resting on outbidding the Spanish club and meeting the player’s wage demand of €300,000 (£250,000) a week. United and Real both want Pogba, though Juventus do not want to lose the Frenchman, who scored in his country’s 5-2 Euro 2016 quarter-final defeat of Iceland on Sunday. This means the clubs would have to match Juventus’s minimum €100m (£84m) valuation in the first instance, and there would then be a bidding war. If United were to offer a higher fee than Real and have this accepted, Mourinho would next have to mount the hurdle of Pogba preferring to play for the European champions rather than for United. Nasa's JUNO finally invade Jupiter's orbit After a five year journey from Earth, Juno the solar-powered spacecraft squeezed through a narrow band, skimming Jupiter’s surface, avoiding the worst of both its radiation belt and its dangerous dust rings. It fired its main engine, slowing its velocity, and allowing it to get captured into Jupiter’s hefty orbit. After it was complete, jubilant scientists fronted a press conference, and tore up a “contingency communication strategy” they said they prepared in case things went wrong. “To know we can go to bed tonight not worrying about what is going to happen tomorrow, is just amazing,” said Diane Brown, a project manager from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The spacecraft will orbit the planet once every 53 days until October 14, when it will shift to a tighter 14-day orbit. And after about 20 months of learning everything it can about Jupiter’s interior and its atmosphere, it will eventually succumb to the harsh environment and plunge into the planet’s crushing centre.
