This is really sad if it’s true. It’s very sad that we can’t accept ourselves for who we are. But innocent babies don’t have a choice and they can’t defend themselves.
My friend bleaches her 9 month old son. She only dates light skinned men as she puts it ” who doesnt want light skinned children black is dirty”. Both her sons were born with more or less the same colour as her, now she bleaches the both of them. The father in the picture, is totally unaware of this. I have spoken to her on a number of occasions to stop but my words have fallen on deaf ears. I am not one for minding peoples business but what she is doing is dangerous. Do you think i should tell the daddy?
And while we’re on the subject of innocent babies with peculiar features, loyal reader Natasha sent this in:
Beautiful eyes right?
According to recent Studies, the chances of an Afro-American baby with blue eyes being born are 1 in a million. There are “brown” people with light eyes, usually light brown, green or gray, but they also share the Anglo-Saxon characteristics such as pug nose and Light hair, but a baby with all the physical characteristics of the afro-American race with blue eyes was almost impossible. Seems like Globalization is working right? It will be more common to see mixes like this one day after day. This baby [is] 19 months now and since he was 12 months old got a full contract and a life insurance with Paramount Pictures; you will see him in movies, commercials and magazines very soon!

It seems as though pop star Rihanna’s tour is not selling as well as she had hoped. Could it be because Rihanna is just not the flavor of the month any more? Or maybe it’s because of her lack of musical skills or her dumb choices in men. Who knows.
But judging from these hyper-sexualized pictures from RiRi’s tour stop in Germany, it could just be that concerned parents everywhere are banning their kids from attending Rihanna’s concerts.
Our society has enough problems with teen pregnancy rates and skyrocketing STDs among the teenage population. We don’t need celebrities encouraging promiscuous behavior.
Do better Rihanna!

Thanks to Natina Reed’s manager Conley Armstrong of Strong Arms Entertainment, who sent us this most recent photo of Natina, which is a far cry from her now infamous mug shot. Natina is getting her life back on track. She’s busy working on her new album and she just landed a big movie role. So good for her!
You can reach out to Natina on her Twitter page TheRealNatina.
Yesterday, I wrote a post about the former Blaque singer being the victim of a malicious attack on another blog. As you know, Reed, 29, was arrested in Decatur, GA (a suburb of Atlanta) back on April 13 and charged with having an open container of alcohol in her car and disorderly conduct.
According to her manager, Conley Armstrong, she was arrested close to midnight and released a few hours later, which made it seem as if she was in jail for a whole day.
Nevertheless, a gossip blog decided her charges weren’t scandalous enough and took it upon themselves to falsify a police report to make it appear as though Reed had been arrested on cocaine and prostitution charges. They also altered the amount of her bond and the status of her charges to appear as though she was still in jail.
And lastly, they misrepresented the location of Reed’s arrest as Gwinnett County rather than DeKalb County to prevent the other blogs from finding her original arrest report online.
Even though we as bloggers are not infallible, there is a line that most of us will not cross. Tampering with official court documents and public records is illegal, and most of us have better common sense than to put our livelihoods at risk for a few blog hits.
The bottom line is artists are humans too. They all have personal issues like we do, and sometimes those personal issues are played out in a very public manner. Blogs cross the line when they twist the truth and fabricate stories in exchange for money and hits.
I can assure my readers that we take great pride in our integrity and credibility and we will never cross that line.
The celebs came out to Havana Club on Tuesday (April 27) support rappers Common and Fat Joe who shot a music video in Atlanta a few days ago. Celebrity photographer Prince Williams of ATLPics.net was on the scene to capture the pics.

MORE pics after the break!
Last night I posted information on a social networking site pertaining to what I thought was a genuine photo of rapper T.I. stripped down to his bare essentials, exposing all his impressive assets.
After conferring by phone with the loyal reader who sent in the photo — and after careful examination of the photo in Photoshop — I came to the conclusion that the photo is not authentic. Instead, it appears to be the result of an overeager fan with decent Photoshop skills.
The image fooled me until I enlarged it in Photoshop and looked closely at the pixels. At 300% magnification, I could see the telltale signs of pixel manipulation.
I even had a credible source reach out to two women (strippers) who have intimate knowledge of T.I.’s bare essentials to verify that he was, shall we say, uncut. But neither woman picked up the phone.
But since I know some of you lost sleep last night from heated anticipation, I’ve decided to post a portion of the photo after the break so that if you come across it on the Internet you will immediately know it is a fake.
Think of this as a PSA Morning Wood.
In other T.I. news, I now know the wedding date of Tiny and T.I., and it’s a lot sooner than I originally thought. In fact, it’s almost right around the corner. I also know that the wedding will not take place in Atlanta, and I am not invited to the nuptials. But that’s no surprise there. I’m just happy that the big day is almost here and Tiny is very happy.
Tiny has stepped up preparations with her wedding coordinator and the bridesmaids dresses are almost complete. This wedding will be planned in record time considering it takes a year to plan most big weddings.
I’m sure there will be a bunch of Twitpics posted on the Internet from inside the wedding, so we won’t feel left out!
More after the break!
Former Blaque member Natina Reed, 29, was arrested in DeKalb County on April 13 and charged with violating the open container laws and disorderly conduct. She was released the next day (April 14) on a $420 bond which she paid in cash.
But there is a bigger story here: it’s a story about how low gossip blogs are willing to sink to drive traffic to their pages.
A gossip blog, which shall remain nameless, decided to use this former celebrity’s unfortunate situation to gain a few hits by doctoring the original arrest report to show that Reed had been arrested for drug possession and prostitution.
When Reed’s former band member Brandy Harris was reached for a comment, she expressed surprise at the fake charges.
Harris said she was “shocked” to hear that a blog Photoshopped Reed’s police report to include charges that were not on the original arrest report. She said her thoughts and Prayers go out to Natina because “now [the false charges are] out there on the Internet.”
Is this how low blogs are willing to sink for a few blog hits?
There’s another gossip blog that notoriously and routinely twists the facts to mislead their readers. But I doubt even that blog would stoop this low.
Obviously Reed has deep, personal issues that stems from her substance abuse in the past. But to say she was arrested for cocaine possession and prostitution when clearly she wasn’t, is appalling — even for a gossip blog.
Reed, who has a son with rapper Kurupt, is also the cousin of former TLC member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.

In my humble opinion, the Post meant to do this. In no way was this simply an honest mistake. Too many eyes saw this before it went live on the website.
Here’s left wing blog HuffPo’s equally ludicrous caption, which doesn’t make the WashPo’s colossal mixup any better:
Violent black radical Barack Hussein Obama X is learning about wind energy in Iowa, The Washington Post reports in a most unfortunate photo caption error.
It appears Obama and Malcolm X were actually slated for separate stories. The error has since been repaired.
Boy, the national media are having a field day now that they no longer feel the stinging shame of white guilt.
