Latest R. Kelly Accusations: Holding Young Women Captive
I really don’t have two beans to put in the pot for this guy. I was completely done with his previous record of inappropriate behavior with young girls. But it seems that it gets to be glossed over under some guise of mentorship? And since he was not convicted of a crime, or whatever the case may be, he continues to get away, time and time again.
I am only posting this video as a test, just to see how much traction it gets, while seriously, it does point to some of the most sickening ills in our world today, I am wondering if YouTube will find it within their illustrious power to allow this video to get some views.
The commentary in this article is very, very well spoken and needs to be heard. I am wondering if that may make this video go to the back of the YouTube bus just because it is well spoken.
Houston, we have a problem, and these unidentified predators along with the ones who are identified, need to have some serious work done on them for the sake of our children.
Our young children and youth are under attack, and for some reason it goes on unabated. Just saw a video of two big cops, handcuffing a 6 year old boy… was that really necessary? Handcuffs??? Because he is using profane language and five finger discounting.. He needs to be arrested and put in handcuffs?? Back in the day, a swift beating would be all that was needed. But in today’s world, the police can beat, handcuff, and in some cases, shoot our children right on the street, and with no remorse or accountability.
They keep saying we gotta go to the home front, but even there, we are being monitored and told just how much and in what way we can discipline our children, and then there’s the world that surrounds them, the media, the devices, movies, etc. that encourage disrespectful and lewd behavior.
From there we play the blame game and blame the children. In my video “Why Do We Blame the Children”
I discuss this very fact, we are the adults, it’s our responsibility to protect, nurture, care and secure our children. I ask the question, who is making these video games, the movies, the apps, the TV shows, the styles of dress that they wear, the food that they eat? And so forth?
Is there a child CEO who is overseeing all of this? No? Who is lying to and terrifying our children?
So, anyways, let’s look at this article and see what Tarana Burke to say about this so-called famous Black celebrity doing what he does as it relates to barely legal young ladies.
Excerpt from Atlanta Black Star:
This is Not a Think Piece — I Don’t Need to Think About How I Feel About R. Kelly by Tarana Burke
I don’t need to think about how I feel about R. Kelly.
I’m not trying to land on a position, I’m not weighing the information, and I’m not taking a little time to process.
He’s trash. Full stop.
This is not a think piece.
There have been enough of them written, as well as exposés and articles and timelines about the horrendous sexually predatory behavior of Robert Sylvester Kelly. I don’t want to talk about him. I want to talk about them. The girls. The Black girls who he has stalked, preyed on, manipulated, terrorized, abused and discarded for the better part of two and a half decades.
The saddest fact I’ve learned is nobody matters less to our society than young black women. Nobody. They have any complaint about the way they are treated and they are “bitches, ho’s, and gold-diggers,” plain and simple. Kelly never misbehaved with a single white girl who sued him or that we know of. Mark Anthony Neal, the African-American scholar, makes this point: “One white girl in Winnetka and the story would have been different. No, it was young black girls, and all of them settled. They settled because they felt they could get no justice whatsoever. They didn’t have a chance.”
This quote is from Jim DeRogatis, the Chicago reporter who has spent the better part of a decade writing about and exposing the sexually deviant behavior of the R&B singer known as R. Kelly. This week DeRogatis published another exposé on the Buzzfeed platform alleging that Kelly is operating a “cult”-like commune where he is holding barely legal Black girls at homes in Atlanta and Chicago under the guise of mentorship and preparation for becoming recording artists. The details are horrid but not surprising. Ever since the first story surfaced about 28-year old Kelly marrying then-15-year old singer Aaliyah the allegations against him have grown more and more grotesque and depraved.

Authorities Release Dashcam Video of Philando Castile Killing Days After Ex-Cop’s Acquittal
EXCERPT: MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota police officer who pulled over Philando Castile politely told the driver that his brake lights were out and calmly instructed him not to pull out his handgun before suddenly drawing his own weapon and firing seven rounds into the car, a video released Tuesday showed.
The dashboard video taken from St. Anthony police Officer Jeronimo Yanez’s squad car illustrated how a simple traffic stop of a Black man shifted in an instant from a routine exchange to a deadly confrontation.
When Yanez opened fire, another officer near the car jumped back, and Yanez began yelling at the driver. As more police and an ambulance arrived, Yanez could be heard breathing heavily and swearing and trying to explain his actions to fellow officers.
The video was made public just days after the Latino officer was acquitted on all counts in the case. Although the squad-car footage was described repeatedly and was shown to jurors in the courtroom, it had never been made public until Tuesday.
The shooting on July 6, 2016, in the Twin Cities suburb of Falcon Heights gained widespread attention because Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, livestreamed its gruesome aftermath on Facebook. Unlike Reynolds’ video, the squad-car video shows the situation’s quick escalation and the shooting itself.
Yanez, who was found not guilty of manslaughter and other charges, began firing only seconds after Castile told the officer he had a gun.
The Cosby Saga, Pt 4: June 15, 2017 The Jury Deadlock
Excerpt: “NORRISTOWN, Pa. — The jury in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial is still at an impasse — after some 40 hours of deliberations over four days — but they’re returning Friday for a fifth day of trying to reach a unanimous verdict.
Judge Steven O’Neill sent the seven men and five women of the jury, clearly fatigued, back to the hotel for the night around 9 p.m.; they will return Friday at 9 a.m. to try again.
“Nine o’clock is long enough to be debating for this day,” O’Neill said, as he sent the jurors off.
Then, curiously, the judge and the attorneys had a private meeting. After a few minutes, they and the jury returned to the courtroom. Many of the jurors were frowning.
The judge addressed the panel, saying he did not want to “intrude on deliberations,” but “if there is anything you need me to know, you will let the court know….I just want to be clear where we are right now.” O’Neill, like the jury, appeared tired from another 12-hour day.”
Excerpt: “After 30-plus hours of deliberation, jurors in the Bill Cosby criminal sexual assault trial have been instructed by the judge to try again after telling him Thursday morning that they are deadlocked.
In other words, they cannot come to an agreement on a verdict. And in Cosby’s case, jurors told Judge Steven O’Neill at Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., that they “cannot come to a unanimous consensus on any of the counts.” Cosby is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault in connection with a 2004 encounter with Andrea Constand.
Shortly after reconvening the court upon receiving the jury’s news early Thursday, O’Neill directed them to try again. The news about the deadlock, or lack of consensus, was predicted by some experts as deliberations extended for days.
However, observers also are not surprised by the judge’s latest directions.

“Cosby Declines to Take Stand; Defense Attorney Delivers 2-Hour Closing Argument”
Excerpt: “NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Bill Cosby’s trial raced toward a close Monday, June 12, with his lawyer telling the jury that the comedian and the woman who accuses him of drugging and molesting her were lovers who had enjoyed secret “romantic interludes.”
Declining to take the stand in his own defense, the 79-year-old TV star left it to his attorney to argue that Cosby’s 2004 sexual encounter with Andrea Constand was consensual. Lawyer Brian McMonagle said in his closing argument that while Cosby had been unfaithful to his wife, he didn’t commit a crime.”
Bill Cosby’s lawyers pressed a judge Tuesday to keep the comedian’s damaging deposition in a decade-old lawsuit out of his sexual assault trial, saying he agreed to answer questions after being assured he wouldn’t be charged with a crime. (Nov. 1)
