Bajan singer Rihanna was seen waving at the paparazzi — one day after shocking video surfaced online of her cursing and shouting at hard working photogs. One of the paparazzo uploaded the video to the Internet so Rihanna’s fans can see just how nasty and rude she is when she thinks no one is looking. The 26-year-old rude gal was dragged unmercifully on Twittter.com. Maybe now she will be more polite to people. She should respect everyone — whether they are photogs or bloggers.

Over the weekend, one of my loyal readers emailed me audio of Power 105’s The Breakfast Club poking fun at boxer Floyd Mayweather’s alleged illiteracy. It wasn’t easy ignoring the trending topic of 50 Cent’s ignorant public humiliation of Mayweather on social media platform Twitter.com. But I managed to ignore it — until I received emails from loyal readers who gave me a different perspective on the ignorance.
For instance, did you know that nearly half of all black people can’t read? The irony is that half of the people who laughed at Mayweather can’t read above a 4th grade level themselves.
