Trayvon Martin

The woman who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin when he was confronted and shot by George Zimmerman inside a gated community took the witness stand today.

Rachel Jeantel, 19, told jurors she was not Trayvon’s girlfriend. She recounted the phone conversation she had with Trayvon before he was shot to death by the self-appointed neighborhood watchman inside the Retreat at Twin Lakes subdivision in February.

Speaking almost in a whisper, Jeantel said Trayvon used the N-word several times as she described what she heard Martin say to a male. She said Trayvon told her the man was following him as he returned to his father’s fiancee’s home from a convenience store. He described the man as “creepy” and a “cracker.”

Paula Deen support from black celebs

Actress Stacey Dash, NFL player Kris Jenkins and civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton are among the black notables who have come forward in support of embattled tv chef Paula Deen.

Deen, 66, was dropped by the Food Network on Friday after Deen readily admitted she used racial slurs and cracked racist jokes about black people in a videotaped deposition.

Two other Deen sponsors, QVC and Smithfield Foods, are quietly shelving the celebrity chef while they await the outcome of a million-dollar sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Deen’s brother, Bubba Hiers, by a former employee.

gay man kills wife

The Supreme Court ruled on two cases today that will change the way traditional marriage has been defined for ages. The SCOTUS judges voted to strike down key provisions in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and the voter-backed law that bans gay marriage in California.

In a 5-4 decision, the supreme court ruled that gays married in states where gay marriage is legal can collect federal benefits in all states — except Utah, which refuses to recognize gay marriage.

The supreme court avoided ruling on the issue of gay marriage altogether. Which means 36 states can still ban gay marriage.

On Prop 8, the Supreme Court ruled that the state of California can vacate and remand the decision, essentially ignoring voters who disapproved of gay marriage.

Meanwhile, here’s an article that you won’t hear much about in the mainstream media: a gay man and his brother have been charged with killing a woman to cash in on her insurance policy.

Update: Earlier I noted that gays who marry in states where gay marriage is legal will be recognized in all states as a result of today’s supreme court ruling. That was incorrect. States where gay marriage is not legal do not have to recognize gay marriages performed in other states.

Chris Brown

Embattled singer Chris Brown took to his Twitter account today to respond to the LA city attorney charging him with hit-and-run.

The 24-year-old singer’s name has been a mainstay in the headlines over the last few years, but it looks it he may not be in the wrong this time.

If you recall, Brown and his longtime girlfriend Karrueche Tran were involved in a fender bender back in May. Brown’s SUV tapped the bumper of another woman’s vehicle. He got out, exchanged information with the woman, took a few photos of the minimal damage, then left the scene.

Now Brown is accusing gossip website TMZ of “yellow journalism” for bullying him and reporting the new charges.

“My lawyers will be contacting you. I will not stand for this bullying and yellow journalism!,” Brown wrote.

Read the rest of his tweets after the break.
