Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris has discovered a breakthrough treatment in the race to find a cure for Covid-19.

Dr. Tip shared his advice for curing Covid-19 during an interview with Complex News' 360, hosted by Speedy Norman.

During a discussion about about Atlanta's "one hundred percent wide open" nightclub scene, the 40-year-old record label owner said he's taken 13 Covid-19 tests and the results were all normal.

Explaining why he and his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, attended his LIBRA album release party last week without masks on, Tip said: "I just refuse to live in fear."

The father-of-7 said he boosts his immune system to defend against Covid.

T.I. said his wife Tiny has antibodies to the virus. She caught the virus and "fought it off and did not give it to me."

He added: "If I can be as close as I've been to my wife, she had it, developed antibodies and fought it off and I still didn't catch it, I think I'll be okay in a club."

As for his breakthrough Covid-19 treatment: T.I. said he drinks warm tea three times a day to keep the Covid away.

After doing his own research, he discovered that Covid starts in the throat before it travels to the lungs.

"If you catch it while it's still in the throat and you drink warm liquids, the warm liquid wash it down to the stomach where the stomach acids then kill it."

He believes people are dying from pre-existing conditions, "not necessarily from the virus."

FYI: While tea and warm liquid do nothing to cure a virus, T.I. and other anti-maskers prove that the coronavirus is not as deadly or as contagious as the "experts" claim.

A Florida judge sentenced a teenager to 25 years in prison for fatally shooting a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office K-9 dog, and other charges.

Jhamal Paskel, 19, previously pleaded guilty to felony charges including killing a police dog, armed carjacking and two counts of kidnapping,

Black Twitter expressed outrage that a Black teenager received prison time for shooting a dog, while Breonna Taylor's killers still walk free.

According to News4Jax, Paskel carjacked two women on Sept. 20, 2018, and forced one of them to drive as he held her at gunpoint.

The car was equipped with an OnStar system, and police tracked the vehicle to Interstate 10 near Cecil Commerce Parkway.

Paskel bailed out of the car and fled on foot with K-9 Fang in hot pursuit. Officers heard three gunshots and K-9 Fang yelped before collapsing on the ground.

"I heard two gunshots back to back followed by a third. In between two and three, I heard Fang yelp, and soon as I came over the embankment, I kind of saw him coming to rest after falling and being shot," the dog's handler Officer Matt Herrera told News4Jax.

According to News4Jax, the Florida Legislature passed a law in 2019 to increase killing a police dog or horse to a second-degree felony and raised the maximum sentence from five years to 15 years.

A lifelong Democrat on the Flint, Michigan City Council is endorsing President Donald Trump for reelection.

Flint City Council member Maurice Davis, 64, announced his endorsement for Trump on Wednesday, saying, "I'm not an Uncle Tom."

Vice President Mike Pence called Davis to the stage during a campaign rally at Michigan's Flint Bishop Airport on Wednesday.

"Vice president of the City Council in Flint. Where are you, Maurice? Let's hear it for Maurice. I'm partial to vice presidents. Thank you, Maurice," Pence said as the crowd applauded.

"Right now, the narrative has been spent: 'President Trump is full of hate.' Let me tell you something, the Democrats are full of hate," Davis said. "I'm tired, I've been a Democrat, I am a Democrat all my life, 64 years. Last four years I voted for Hillary Clinton. This year I decided to go with President Trump. I'm not a bootlicker, I'm not an Uncle Tom. I'm none of those things. I'm somebody that's in a poor, impoverished community."

Davis added, "People are losing everything, and when Mr. Trump says 'What the hell do you got to lose?' he was talking to me. But this is what I got to gain: Instead of being a divided state of America, it's time to be the United States of America.

"We're tired of suffering and nobody give a damn about poor folks. President Trump, they reached out with nothing but love from y'all all over this nation."

Davis is not the first notable Black Democrat to support Trump. The president has been endorsed by Georgia state Representative Vernon Jones, and other Black Democrats.

Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and six mayors in Minnesota, all Democrats, are supporting Trump's re-election.

Ice Cube was a guest on "Cocktails With Queens" hosted by Claudia Jordan this week.

Ice Cube, real name O'Shea Jackson, explained why he declined to jump on a call with Democratic VP candidate Kamala Harris.

"I'm here for both administrations. I'm here to talk about the contract with Black America," he said.

He said he declined to participate in a Zoom call with Harris and 12 other celebrities because he spent a lot of time putting together his Contract with Black America. He added that the call with entertainers wouldn't be productive.

"I felt like our plan is so broad that you can't talk about it with twelve other people who had nothing to do with it," he said.

The rapper-turned-director said he was promised a call with Harris to discuss his CWBA, but he never received that call from her.

In previous statements, he said the Biden/Harris camp told him they would get back with him after the election.

Jackson said the Republicans were willing to speak to him about his CWBA.

He said he spoke with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and they never got around to discussing his Contract with Black America.

Jackson complained about the 'Queens' hosts talking over him (particularly LisaRaye and Vivica A. Fox) who weren't listening to what he has to say.

Wendy Williams wants you to know she is doing fine after appearing drowsy and physically unstable on a recent show.

Wendy addressed an ex co-worker's concerns after DJ Boof suggested that the daytime talk show host might be influenced by drugs and alcohol.

Wendy's behavior on Friday's show raised alarms on social media. She was lethargic, slurred her words and took long pauses to collect her thoughts.

Her producers couldn't hide the concern on their faces.

DJ Boof, who quit as Wendy's deejay earlier this year, expressed his concern in an Instagram post on Monday, writing: "...this is going to play out bad. I feel sorry for the workers and victims."

But Wendy insists she is fine and she thanked her fans for continuing to watch. Wendy has been open about her battle with Graves' disease that caused swelling in her legs (lymphedema) that makes it difficult for her to walk.

"I always say I love you for watching 'cause I really, really do. I come here every day and I try to do the best that I can for you," she said during her show on Monday. "I appreciate you watching, but even after all of these years, it's still work. An effort put in for the hour I'm out here, you know? I guess every day is not perfect, but I'm not a perfectionist. I'm not perfect."

Atlanta PD

Atlanta police released a sketch of a suspect wanted in connection with multiple carjackings and robberies of women in the Atlanta area.

Police are investigating at least four carjacking incidents involving the same man that began at the end of September.

The man's latest victim, a woman who asked to remain anonymous, was punched and dragged from her car on Oct. 9, just after 4 p.m., outside the Dump, a furniture store in the affluent Buckhead neighborhood in northwest Atlanta.

The woman told 11Alive News she was sitting in her car near the store's entrance after loading a rug. A Black man opened the back door and asked if she and her mom were picking up furniture.

The victim politely said no, but the man did something unexpected.

"He climbed in the car, shut the door, and I just knew, oh my God," the victim told 11Alive.

The carjacker ordered her to drive off, threatening to kill her. But the victim was concerned for her 76-year-old mother in the passenger seat, so she resisted.

"My voice was shaky and I was like, 'This is my mother' and I'm like, 'Get out of my car!'" she said. "Then he grabs me, starts pulling me over the center console, my mom starts hitting him on the back to let me go."

The victim yelled for her mother to run inside the store to get help as she continued to struggle with the carjacker.

"He just throws a right hook into my left eye, just goes boom," she said. The man dragged her out of the car and drove off.

Police located her car days later at the Summit Condos in Sandy Springs, where the man carjacked another driver and forced that victim to drive him to an ATM.

Police believe the same suspect carjacked three women and forced them to drive to an ATM.

The Buckhead victim told 11Alive she felt lucky because she was dragged from her car.

"I cannot imagine how these women feel about complying and having to drive to these ATM machines," she said. "To be driving around and be scared to death for minutes upon minutes."

President Donald Trump urged his loyal supporters to put their faith in God, not masks during a campaign stop in Greenville, NC on October 15.

The president, who recently recovered from Covid-19, urged his followers not to rely on face masks, which could potentially expose them to the coronavirus.

A recent study by the CDC found 74% of people who "always" wore face masks contracted the coronavirus.

"Masks, no masks... you can do all you want, but you know, you still need help from the boss," Trump said, as he pointed to the sky.

"Somebody said to me the other day, 'You're the most famous person in the world by far.' I said, 'No I'm not.' They said, 'Who's more famous?' I said, 'Jesus Christ.' I'm not taking any chances..."

Elsewhere in his speech, Trump promised to reopen schools and stop the leftist's "radical indoctrination" of school children.

"We will stop the radical indoctrination of our students and restore patriotic education to our schools. We will teach our children to love our country, honor our history and always respect our great American flag. And we will live by the timeless words of our national motto, 'In God we trust,' and that won't be changed."

Trump received enthusiastic applause from huge crowds when he returned to North Carolina to speak at a rally in Gastonia on Wednesday, Oct. 21.

He was accompanied by conservative YouTube vloggers Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, aka Diamond and Silk, who led the crowd in chants of "Four more years!"

"Just want you all to know that we are the United States of America -- not China, but the United States of America," they told the crowd.

The North Carolina natives urged the crowd not to listen to the liberal news media, who they referred to as "the enemy of the people."

"People keep saying, "Oh my God, I feel like a slave," said Hardaway. "Well, if you are standing out here in this crowd..., you ain't never been no slave! You don't know nothing about slavery," she said, as the crowd cheered.

She added: "And anybody that feels like a slave, how about you stop voting like a slave and maybe you won't feel like one."

Tip "T.I." Harris defended fellow rapper Ice Cube for sitting down with President Donald Trump to discuss his ambitious Contract with Black America.

Ice Cube, real name O'Shea Jackson, met with both political parties to discuss his plan for economic recovery for the Black community. Only Trump was willing to share his $500 billion plan with Jackson. The Biden camp told him they would get back to him after the election.

T.I. told Power 106 that people should "give Cube the benefit of his reputation." He said only one party was willing to give Jackson a viable plan to develop businesses in the Black community.

"To add input to this initiative for the greater good of your people, and only one side responds? That's not Cube's fault. If we ain’t never known or seen or caught Cube on no bullsh*t - doing no tap dancing and bending over backwards for no white supremacist. Why you think he gon' start right now 35, 40 years in? Why? You've got to give him the credit of his credibility. And if you ain’t never known him to be on bullsh*t before, why you gon' just automatically put him in the mix of some bullsh*t now?"

T.I. also revealed that Polow Da Don told him that Trump and his team wanted to meet with him.

Joe Biden says his 1994 crime bill that decimated the Black community was "a mistake."

Biden made the remark during his town hall event with ABC News on Thursday night.

When asked by ABC News' George Stephanopoulos if the bill was a mistake, Biden replied, "Yes, it was. But here's where the mistake came. The mistake came in terms of what the states did locally."

Biden said the bill was created in response to a spike in crime in the inner cities in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

A member of Biden's campaign later took to Twitter to clarify that Biden was referring to the 1986 crime bill, not the controversial 1994 crime bill.

Biden wrote both bills.

The 1986 bill, which Biden also authored, toughened the sentences for possession of rock cocaine, aka "crack", while lessening sentences for people who used powder cocaine.

As Fox News pointed out on Friday, the 1994 crime bill incentivized states to "fill up prisons" in exchange for federal cash in state coffers.

Biden, 77, claims he was tougher on crack users because he was told crack cocaine was worse than powder cocaine.

"We were told by the experts that '[with] crack, you can never go back.' It was somehow fundamentally different. It's not different. It's trapped an entire generation."

A young Black male who participated in the town hall told the presidential candidate that Black males will be sitting at home on Election Day.

A recent poll shows President Trump's support among Black males increased to 45% from just 8% in 2016.

President Donald J. Trump held a rally for hundreds of Black and brown supporters at the White House on Saturday, Oct. 10, in Washington, DC.

But rather than join his loyal supporters inside the White House as he normally would do, Trump spoke to them from the second-floor balcony of the Blue Room.

Washington Post via Getty Images

Trump was given a clean bill of health by his doctor last week, after testing positive for Covid-19 on Oct. 1.

Conservative activist Candace Owens, who is one of Trump's most vocal supporters, is catching heat for reportedly paying Black people to attend the rally at the White House.

ABC News reported that Owens's BLEXIT group paid for some Black people to travel by plane to the event. Attendees were asked to bring a mask and to fill out a form acknowledging that BLEXIT would cover the costs, including a Covid-19 test.

Owens slammed ABC News for twisting the facts.

"We are not interested in participating in your obvious media angle here to slander/attack the president regarding COVID-19," Owens told ABC News, adding that the event was about "supporting law enforcement in minority communities."

According to EURweb.com, Black Twitter accused Owens of using Black people as paid "props" for "racist" Trump and endangering their lives.

"They're paying Black people to risk their lives as props for the COVID-infected racist president," former Clinton foreign policy spokesperson Jesse Lehrich tweeted.

"She should be held accountable if any of them get sick. You're flying people to be infected. And for what?" tweeted Elon James White, comedian, founder and editor in chief of This Week in Blackness.

Owens later admitted that a few Trump supporters "who asked for financial help" were provided with "travel stipends."

She then accused her critics of "mocking people who are struggling financially."

"Um... yes. We had a small group of attendees who asked for financial help to make the event so we secured travel stipends for them. Mocking people who are struggling financially is the weirdest, most elitist, Democrat flex— possibly ever," she tweeted in response to writer Jonathan Capehart's retweet of the ABC story.

Wendy Williams was spotted arriving at the studio with her team earlier this week. The 56-year-old talk show host showed off her dramatic 25 lb weight loss during quarantine.

She looked healthy as she exited her chauffeured SUV. Wendy previously struggled to walk due to a condition called lymphedema which causes a buildup of fluid in the tissue resulting in swelling in her legs and feet.

BACKGRID

But Wendy seemed to be getting around without trouble. She wore denim shorts, an LV letterman style jacket, high top sneakers and a Dior top.

Wendy discussed her condition in a recent episode of her talk show.

"I have lymphedema and it doesn't go away," she explained, as the camera zoomed in on her pink sneakers. "How dare you, how dare you, how dare you make fun of me and the way I walk and the whole bit," she said, apparently addressing hateful comments made by her former friend, NeNe Leakes.

"What will you get if you live long enough? Everybody gets something," Wendy laughed. "If I don't laugh, I'll cry. Damn you feet, damn you feet, damn you feet!"

R&B star Trey Songz has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The 35-year-old crooner revealed his diagnosis in a video on his Instagram page: "Here with a very important message to let you know I tested positive for COVID-19," he said.

"I've taken many tests as I've been out protesting, food drives, of course I have a very young son at home, so I get tested periodically and this time it unfortunately came back positive."

Noting that 1/1000 Black people have died from the virus, and revealing that he believes Covid-19 was the cause of his grandfather's death earlier this year, Trey continued: "I will be taking it seriously. I will be self-quarantining, I will be in my house until I see a negative [test]."

Trey wore a black sweatshirt with the words "Black Lives Matter" printed on the front.

The 35-year-old Sagittarius concluded his video by telling his followers to speak out if they come into contact with the virus, saying: "If you come in contact with Covid, please do say. Please do say. Don't be like the president."

President Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 on Friday, Oct. 2. Democrats lashed out at the President for removing his mask on the White House balcony after he arrived home from Walter Reed Medical Center on Monday.

The "Bottoms Up" singer captioned his video: "Down but not out! Stay safe y’all! Wear your mask. Wash your hands."

US President Donald Trump experienced mild shortness of breath after walking up the South Portico steps as he arrived at the White House from Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where he underwent treatment for Covid-19 on Monday, Oct. 5 [see video below].

Patients who are recovering from a respiratory illness will experience air hunger after exertion, such as walking up steps. It is usually not a cause for concern.

AFP via Getty Images

Dyspnea or air hunger is mild to moderate difficulty breathing after exertion, such as climbing steps. It is an uncomfortable feeling that usually lasts less than 2 minutes, but it can last longer.

Dyspnea on exertion, also known as shortness of breath, occurs when the body is craving oxygen after quickly using up oxygen stores doing exercise or another strenuous activity.

People who exhibit air hunger after exertion typically feel anxiety from the sensation of not being able to get enough air in their lungs.

Anyone can experience mild air hunger or dyspnea after exercising -- even world class athletes and joggers.

Sometimes, air hunger is just a case of being out of shape, and exercise can improve symptoms. But it can be a sign of a serious health issue.

Signs & Symptoms of Air Hunger (Dyspnea)

  • shortness of breath after exertion or due to a medical condition
  • feeling smothered or suffocated as a result of breathing difficulties
  • anxiety or panic attack
  • labored breathing
  • tightness in the chest
  • rapid, shallow breathing
  • heart palpitations
  • wheezing
  • coughing
  • Air hunger or dyspnea without exertion is a medical emergency. You should be seen by a doctor immediately.

    Care should be taken to avoid over-exerting yourself during the recovery stage of an illness when you are regaining your strength following an illness.

    Black Twitter is confused over a recent statement by Joe Biden during a campaign stop in Tampa. In a video uploaded to Twitter, Biden said the reason he was able to remain "sequestered" in his basement is because "some Black woman was able to stock the grocery shelf."

    The 77-year-old Democratic candidate never explained what he meant by that remark. Many on social media are struggling to understand whether Biden has a personal grocery shopper who happens to be Black.

    One Twitter user wrote, "This is what happens when Joe Biden takes questions without a teleprompter."
