CBS46 host Michelle Burdo has apologized for using the archaic racial descriptor ‘colored’ while speaking to a woman of African descent.
“Let me tell you something,” Burdo said during a live discussion with an African-American hair expert, “I’m not a colored woman but I have kinky hair just like her and when you straighten it every day, it’s…” she paused, searching for the right word. “Healthier,” she added.

Grown men recoiled at the sight of St. Louis draftee Michael Sam licking cake icing off the lips of his boyfriend, Vito Cammissano. Only seconds before “the kiss”, these same men cheered St. Louis for having the courage to draft Sam with its 249th pick in the NFL draft on Saturday. 31 other teams had bypassed the SEC Defensive Player of the Year who was projected as a mid- to late round draft pick.
ESPN taped Sam’s reaction and aired the tape immediately after his draft pick was announced. Social media’s reaction to “the kiss” was wildly mixed. Some applauded the NFL, St. Louis and Sam for their courage. While others — including professional and college football players — expressed their distaste with ESPN for repeatedly showing “the kiss” on air. Many believed ESPN went too far.
Hollywood power couple Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith have a hands-off approach in raising their precocious children, Jaden and Willow Smith. Eyebrows were raised when 12-year-old Willow appeared in a music video with a grown man as his love interest.
And yesterday, an inappropriate photo surfaced online showing the now 13-year-old relaxing in bed with a 20-year-old man — presumably her boyfriend — basking in an apparent post-coital glow.
