Gabrielle Union

This is such an important conversation.

In the November issue of Essence, Gabrielle Union opens up about what it's like to raise three African American boys during such a time of violent racial divide in the United States.

As you know, the 42-year-old actress became stepmom to Zaire, 14, Zion, 9, and Xavier, 2 when she married NBA player Dwyane Wade back in 2014.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Calls Colin Kaepernick's National Anthem Protest 'Dumb & Disrespectful' — Gavel Down!

no title

We did NOT see this coming!

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently sat down with Katie Couric to chat about a whole slew of controversial topics.

In the new Yahoo! interview — released on Monday — the journalist asked the political figure how we can eliminate the racial divide within our country, especially the far-too-often police shootings of unarmed black men.

The 83-year-old responded:

"I think there are serious efforts to educate the police and local communities to the importance of rapport. … We are dependent on police officers for our security, but they should also be cognizant of the community that they serve."

But the conversation quickly changed to Colin Kaepernick's powerful protests against the National Anthem.

When asked her opinion on the San Francisco 49ers player's strong stance against the song, the New York native straight-up SLAMMED the sports star's demonstration, saying:

Mary J. Blige's Sit-Down With Hillary Clinton Is As Poignant As It Is Awkward…

no title

You'd think putting two icons together would yield better results…

While Hillary Clinton was the clear winner of Monday night's Presidential debate, the Clinton campaign suffered a bit of a setback almost immediately after on Tuesday.

That's because Apple dropped a surprise teaser for a sit-down interview between the Democratic candidate and Mary J. Blige… to less than stellar reception.

Apparently, Mary J.'s new talk show The 411 – named after her debut studio album What's the 411? – premieres this Friday, and HRC herself will be the very first guest!

Unfortunately, the teaser doesn't do Mary's message about police brutality and racism any justice, because she's just awkwardly singing at Hillary for pretty much the entire time.

While we couldn't support the message more… belting full volume at someone sitting right across from you is just odd, no matter how many Grammys you have. (Nine. She has nine.)

Still, you know we'll be tuning in when The 411 premieres Friday, September 30 on Apple Music!

Ch-ch-check out the awkward ad in all its glory (below)!!!

Officer Betty Shelby will be held accountable for the tragic death of Terence Crutcher.

On Thursday, the Tulsa County District Attorney announced they charged Betty with manslaughter in the first-degree following the release of disturbing video from the September 16 incident.

According to DA Steve Kunzweiler, he felt there was enough evidence to charge Shelby with the crime after conducting a thorough investigation. We imagine shooting an unarmed man for no apparent reason played a big factor in the decision…

In a statement to the press, Kunzweiler explained:

This seriously needs to stop.

On Thursday, state trooper Jermaine Saunders shot and killed Daniel Harris after a traffic violation in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The 29-year-old was deaf, mute, and unarmed.

The State Bureau of Investigation says the State Highway Patrol officer tried to pull over the man's Volvo on I-485 for speeding.

However, the car didn't pull over for the trooper, resulting in a brief pursuit.

The Highway Patrol told Channel 9 that the chase continued onto the Rocky River Road off-ramp, where the officers intentionally bumped Daniel's vehicle to get him to pull over.

When the chase ended on Seven Oaks Drive — the street where Mr. Harris lived — neighbor Mark Barringer described to WCNC how both cars were damaged:

Cop Who Killed 73-Year-Old Woman During Training Exercise Has A History Of Police Brutality — There's Even Shocking Video!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadViolenceViral: NewsSocial Issues

no title

For some reason this doesn't surprise us…

As you may have heard, a 73-year-old woman was shot and killed by police during a "Shoot/Don't Shoot" training exercise in Punta Gorda, Florida on Tuesday night.

Mary Knowlton had been randomly selected to act as a cop during a pretend standoff for the community event when "bad guy" Officer Lee Coel fired two live rounds into the retired librarian, killing her before she could get to the hospital.

By all accounts, this was just an unfortunate accident — the prop gun had somehow been loaded with real ammunition as opposed to blanks — but it does not help the situation that Lee has a pretty questionable history in law enforcement.

Apparently, before working with the Punta Gorda Police Department, the 28-year-old was forced to resign from Florida's Miramar Police Department after "failing to satisfactorily complete an agency field training program."

But that's not even Officer Coel's worst offense — he was actually involved in a case of police brutality last October when he
