 For Showing Leg Hair Adidas Model Says She Received Rape Threats:

SHOULD WOMEN WEAR HAIR ON THEIR LEGS?

People committing to squashing societal norm surrounding body issues like female body hair often receive their rightful praise. But they also become vulnerable to hateful rhetoric. 

That’s reportedly the case for Swedish model and artist Arvida Byström, who stars in a new campaign for Adidas Originals. In a photoshoot posted to Instagram and Youtube late last month, Byström is wearing a short dress, her unshaven legs on display. 

“I think femininity is usually created from our culture. I think everybody can do feminine things, can be feminine and I feel like in today’s society, we’re very scared of that,” she says in a  video, which has been viewed over a million times. 

The clip sparked a number of supportive comments, many praising Byström for reminding people to “be themselves” and “breaking down cultural norms.” Adidas told HuffPost it’s why they cast her in the campaign.

“Adidas Originals is honored to work with creators like Arvida for their creativity, diversity and unique ideas,” a spokeswoman said. “We lend the breadth and depth of our brand to give our collaborators a platform for positivity, discussion and change.”

But according to an Instagram post Byström shared Sept. 25, it also sparked threatening messages sent through social media, including threats of rape.

“My photo from the @adidasoriginals superstar campaign got a lot of nasty comments last week,” she wrote alongside a photo from the shoot. “Me being such an abled, white, cis body with its only nonconforming feature being a lil leg hair. Literally I’ve been getting rape threats in my DM inbox. I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like to not posses all these privileges and try to exist in the world. Sending love and try to remember that not everybody has the same experiences being a person. Also thanks for all the love, got a lot of that too.” 

Byström didn’t share exactly what the threatening messages said, nor did she respond to a request for comment. But she did clarify her post in a second Instagram over the past weekend. 

"I’ve been wanting to write something on this for awhile, and this whole adidas thing makes me feel it is pretty relevant to bring it up. I started calling myself a feminist back when I didn’t get big ad jobs and honestly didn’t imagine I would ever do. Also this was a time when feminism wasn’t really a topic of the public discussion in the same way as it is today. Back then I probably claimed I made or wanted to make feministic art, which is why this term seems to be tied to my professional life just due to some mistakes I made as a 20 year old. I am as a privat person a feminist but in relationship to my work I would say I’m not. Me being in an adidas campaign is great fun, it is a company I enjoy working with and that makes cool stuff, but since all companies are very integrated in our capitalistic system they are inherently non feministic in the sense that this system is built on imperialism and that to me can’t be feministic. So even though I have hairy legs in an ad campaign I guess to me it doesn’t make me a hero of any kind and also not more of a feminist. I do want to thank everybody for the kind support though. All of you who have been writing the past few days have been incredibly sweet and that truly warms my heart. I just think that this thing have been blown a little bit out of proportion making it seem like I’m scared of being raped. Basically it was some people in my inbox writing these things. Of course that’s unpleasant and I do think it is a problem that men use sexually violent language when women doesn’t abide, but I don’t actually think these people are gonna rape me. I mainly get concerned for the women that has to be around these men, because having that kind of abusive language coming from somebody that you know or are physically around you is very painful and damaging. Luv to you all and here is a lil animation I made for @ssense that I think is super cool and wish got as much attention as my leg hair"

This thing has been blown a little bit out of proportion, making it seem like I’m scared of being raped,” she wrote. “Basically it was some people in my inbox writing these things. Of course that’s unpleasant, and I do think it is a problem that men use sexually violent language when women [don’t] abide, but I don’t actually think these people are gonna rape me. I mainly get concerned for the women that have to be around these men, because having that kind of abusive language coming from somebody that you know or is physically around you is very painful and damaging.” 

In sharing her story, Byström shed light on the dark side that can accompany breaking down barriers in beauty  and the reality that not everyone is lucky enough to have the same platform to receive support.

 Meek Mill of Nicki Minaj FAME Goons Attacked Safree.

 

Safaree Samuels is explaining what really happened when he had a running with Meek Mill and his goons and that infamous twerk video floating around on the net.

 The incident with Meek went down in June at a party DJ Khaled was hosting during the BET Awards weekend in West Hollywood. Safaree and his friends were hanging out outside the venue when Meek Mill and his crew pulled up and jumped him.

“This is going to be my first time talking about it because I never really explained the situation,” he said. “I saw him come out first and am just standing there looking at him and by the time he stood out boom I got hit so then I ran off to where the car was parked at. Then I turned around and stopped to look and see what’s going and I see two people coming at me from the front and then there was another group of more people coming towards me from the side. When I balled up that’s where I was by the car I just felt ni***s hitting me. All I saw was like feet shuffling boom boom boom and then when I felt like I was able to break free, I didn’t even realize what was happening. I went to a bar I went and got a bottle and I went and got a knife. My boy when he came back I didn’t even know that he was fighting else I would’ve gone back like am not trying to leave I don’t care how many ni***s there was.”

Did Safree run left his boys to fight?

One of the big thing about the running between Safaree Samuels and Meek Mill was that he ran and left his friend who was fighting for him.

Is meek Mill's a PUNK for attacking Safree with a BUNCH of DUDES?

Meek is being criticized as a coward for attacking one man with over a dozen men.

President Trump is now using the great legend Usain Bolt as a means to justify his beef with NFL players over the national anthem.

So, last weekend Trump ignite another firestorm at a political rally when he bashed NFL players who kneel during the playing of the national anthem, calling them SOBs. There has been widespread backlash over his statement and he has been tweeting about it since last weekend.

His latest tweet is a video of Usain Bolt at The London 2012 Summer Olympics where he was doing an interview after winning a gold medal. Bolt stopped the interview while the national Anthem of the United States was being played so he could Stand and Pay Respect. “Even Usain Bolt from Jamaica, one of the greatest runners and athletes of all time, showed RESPECT for our National Anthem!” Present DonaldTrump wrote on Twitter in his latest campaign against the NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem.

Usain Bolt immediately became a trending topic on Twitter and a lot of his fans are saying that he shouldn’t be dragged into this.

Here’s How Senate Republicans Have Voted On Dreamers And Immigrant.

Nearly every current Senate Republican opposed the Dream Act in 2010, but some shifted on a broader immigration bill in 2013.

 Members of Congress will soon need to decide whether they want to grant some sort of relief to the hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants President Donald Trump put at risk of deportation and losing their jobs.

On the Republican side, many senators said they wanted to help after Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. But only six have publicly supported standalone legislation in 2017 to grant so called Dreamers legal status leaving 46 Republican senators who have not endorsed any bill this year that would allow people who came to the U.S. as children to avoid deportation.

Lawmakers’ past votes could provide clues about how they’ll vote on this year’s proposals. Only one current Senate Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska supported the Dream Act, a bill to grant legal status to Dreamers in 2010. She also supported a comprehensive immigration reform bill in 2013.

Others have been less consistent on their votes for bills to grant legal status to certain undocumented immigrants. Every other current Senate Republican who was serving in Congress in 2010 opposed the Dream Act, either through a straight vote procedural vote that prevented it from moving forward in the Senate.

However, 11 Republican senators currently serving, including Murkowski, voted for a 2013 comprehensive reform bill that coupled Dream Act-type measures and a path to legal status for many undocumented immigrants with border security, enforcement and other changes to the immigration system. If the Dream Act is paired with border security now as Trump has demanded their 2013 vote could indicate they would also support a similar bill now.

Republicans Are Waging A ‘Coordinated Attack’ On Women’s Health Care.

The American Health Care Act would make pregnancy more expensive, and a forthcoming executive order would make birth control harder to get.

It’s safe to say that the GOP doesn’t like women very much. Do they, GOP have mothers, sisters and daughters?

The Republican health care bill, which narrowly passed the House on Thursday, would both increase the cost of having a baby and return the U.S. to the days when simply being a woman was considered a pre existing condition meaning women could be charged far more than men for health care or simply denied coverage.

Meanwhile, a religious “liberty” executive order expected out of the White House this week would let companies opt out of covering birth control because of their religious beliefs.

“This is a coordinated attack on women’s access to health care,” said Rachel Easter, counsel on the reproductive rights team at the National Women’s Law Center.

Lower-income women would especially bear the brunt of the GOP’s bill, which also seeks to defund Planned Parenthood, where the majority of patients rely on public assistance for health care. The bill would also put work requirements into Medicaid, which would make it very difficult for women seeking to recover from childbirth-related complications.  

Rolling back the Obamacare requirement that health insurers cover everyone, including people with so called “pre-existing conditions,” is particularly punishing.

Before the law passed in 2010, insurers could and did deny coverage to pregnant women, women with postpartum depression or women who experienced complications and injuries resulting from sexual assault, rape or domestic violence.

Sometimes they just charged women more for health insurance or sold plans that didn’t include maternity care. It was common, for example, for a female nonsmoker to be charged more for health insurance than a man who smoked, according to a report from the National Women’s Law Center.

Before Obamacare, 62 percent of people who bought their own insurance plans didn’t get maternity benefits, according to data cited in The New York Times.

Back then, delivering a baby in the hospital cost between $32,000 and $52,000, Easter said, citing NWLC data. Now, your insurer covers these costs.

“Obamacare really made a difference in women’s lives,” she said.

An amendment added to the Republican bill would let states waive the requirement that insurers cover people with pre-existing conditions and allow states to decide what would be considered an “essential benefit,” jeopardizing contraception coverage. Right now birth control is considered an essential part of preventive care.

And while the GOP is trying to make having a baby more expensive, they’re also trying to make having an abortion more difficult. Vice President Mike Pence recently bragged about the administration’s devotion to curtailing abortion access.

The abortion rate nationwide is at a historic low. Many attribute the drop to Obamacare’s expansion of reproductive and preventive coverage.

DOES BLACK LIFE MATTERS???

Texas Police Officer Uses Rifle In Fatal Shooting Of Unarmed 15-Year-Old

Another black teen is dead following an encounter with police.

A 15-year-old boy was killed in Texas on Saturday after a police officer opened fire on a car in which he was riding, according to Dallas attorney Lee Merritt.

ATT. Merritt identified the teen as Jordan Edwards, a freshman at Mesquite High School. The attorney told CRAZY VIBEZ RADIO SOURCE that Edwards was a “straight-A student” who was active in sports, popular and “well liked.”

“This kid had no kind of record or disciplinary history,” the attorney added.

Edwards died, according to ATT. Merritt, as the result of a single gunshot wound to the head. The teen is the youngest person to have been killed by police in the U.S. this year.

According to the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office, the shooting has been ruled a homicide, caused by a “rifle wound.” While AR-15 rifles are popular with law enforcement agencies, the medical examiner’s office declined to identify the type of rifle used in the shooting.

The circumstances leading up to the shooting are murky and police aren’t sharing many details, but they acknowledge that an officer is responsible for the shooting.

ATT. Merritt, who represents the victim’s family, said Edwards was among “several dozen kids” who fled a party in Balch Springs on Saturday APRIL 28TH, when they received word the police had been called.

“All the kids began to disperse and head back to their respective cars,” ATT. Merritt said. “As they were walking to their cars, they heard shots. No one knows where the shots came from.”

The Balch Springs Police Department said it was notified of a potential gunshot while heading to investigate report of “intoxicated juveniles” walking around in the 12300 block of Baron Drive. However, the source of the sound or whether it was even a gunshot remains unclear.

ATT. Merritt said Edwards and three other teens rushed into a vehicle driven by Edwards’ 16-year-old brother.

“As they backed out of a parking space, they heard someone shouting profanities at them,” he said. “Before they had a chance to respond, the person shouting at them shot three shots into the vehicle and one of the three rounds went into Jordan Edwards’ forehead.”

Balch Springs Police Chief Jonathan Haber said an “unknown altercation” occurred before the shooting. He said the officer opened fire after the vehicle started “backing down the road towards him.

Attorney Merritt said the chief’s explanation differs from that of witnesses.

“What the chief said gives the implication that the officer was in danger behind the vehicle and shot into the car, but the bullet came through the front passenger side window,” the attorney said. 

Edwards’ brother, whom Att. Merritt says was unaware the shots had been fired by a police officer, sped away from the scene.

“They got about a block away when they realized Jordan had been hit,” Att. Merritt said. “They stopped the car and tried to flag down police officers that were passing by, but those police officers just kept going. They waited for a little while and another group of officers came by and they were able to flag them down and receive emergency help.”

Haber’s office has declined to comment further on the case, citing the ongoing investigation.

Att.Merritt said none of the occupants in the vehicle with Edwards have been charged with a crime. He also said authorities did not find alcohol or weapons in the vehicle

Authorities have declined to identify the officer involved in the shooting. However, they have said the officer has been placed on administrative leave.

The U.S. Department of Justice and other national policing organizations recommend that law enforcement agencies institute policies prohibiting officers from shooting into moving vehicles. Experts note that it’s not an effective tactic to stop a car that is driving toward an officer, and that such actions often put innocent people at risk.

The Dallas County District Attorney’s Office is leading the investigation into the shooting. It has yet to share any specific details, but has offered condolences to the victim’s family.

“We, will continue to keep them in our thoughts and prayers as we move forward expeditiously, with a commitment to justice and transparency,” the agency said in a statement to out CRAZY VIBEZ RADIO SOURCE.

ATT. Merritt said the victim’s family is hoping the investigation results in charges being filed against the officer who fired the shot.

“This is not the kind of neighborhood where violence is common it’s an urban, rural neighborhood,” the attorney said. “They knew they were responding to a party with juveniles. They knew there were kids there, so you’d think there would have been an elevated level of caution.”

WHY ARE BLACK PEOPLE MAD?

SHOULD THEY BE MAD?

AS Principal’s Order To Keep White Students Together!!!

Should She Be Fired?

The district has a long history of alleged discrimination against black students. 

Christine Hoffman, principal of Campbell Park Elementary in St. Petersburg, Florida sent an email to teachers at the predominantly black school on April 18 with guidelines for how to sort students for next year’s classes, including the directive that white students should be kept together. Now she will not return to work at her school.

She later sent a follow-up email apologizing for the mistake, calling it poor judgment. Christine Hoffman asked to be relieved as principal on Monday, and Pinellas County Schools officials transferred her to district headquarters, granting her request, the following day. She is being investigated by the district’s Office of Professional Standards, according to our CRAZY VIBEZ RADIO SOURCE.

Hoffman will not return to her position at the elementary school, district spokeswoman Lisa Wolf told our CRAZY VIBEZ RADIO SOURCE. Wolf declined to provide specifics about the investigation or say whether Hoffman will remain at the district after it is complete. Campbell Park’s assistant principal took over as the school’s acting principal this week with support from another administrator.

“We did not need to have a further distraction with Campbell Park,” Pinellas County schools Superintendent Mike Grego said at a school board meeting. “That move was made not only in the best interest of the school but for the entire community.”

In a letter sent to parents last week, Hoffman, who is white, again apologized and said she now realizes “how racially insensitive the guideline was.”

“I was asking that there not be a class with only one white student,” she wrote. “I was not asking that all white students in each grade be clustered, as that is not our practice in creating class lists.”

But parents and community members weren’t satisfied with her apology, with some calling for her resignation.

“We don’t trust her level of compassion for our kids,” parent Laketta Davis said. “We don’t trust her guidance for the staff. And I think she needs to resign.”

As a white woman leading a predominately black school, I am approaching this as an opportunity to learn. Christine Hoffman, former Campbell Park Elementary principal

The incident is particularly egregious in light of ongoing investigations into complaints that the district is shortchanging black students.

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights opened an investigation into the district’s discipline practices in December, after the Southern Poverty Law Center filed a complaint alleging racial discrimination. 

The district’s black students are nearly four times as likely to be arrested as white students, according to the SPLC  an especially troubling statistic given the grim realities of the School To Prison Pipeline.

The DOE’s civil rights office had also opened an investigation last spring to determine whether the district is denying an equal education to black students. The investigations follow an in depth report from the Tampa Bay Times in 2015, “Failure Factories,” which meticulously chronicled how five St. Petersburg schools in black neighborhoods have sharply declined since the district abandoned integration efforts in 2007. The district has since started implementing major reforms. 

Attorneys with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, who are still wrapped up in a legal battle with the district over a desegregation case dating back to to 1964, condemned Hoffman’s apparent suggestion to essentially resegregate her classrooms.  

“We are appalled by this reprehensible directive, which only underscores the importance of our continued litigation in Pinellas County,” attorneys said in a statement. “This desegregation case has been going on for more than 50 years, and disturbing incidents like this make clear that discrimination is hardly a thing of the past in Pinellas County schools.”

Maria Scruggs, president of the St. Petersburg chapter of the NAACP, said at a Tuesday press conference that her organization has received a wave of calls from outraged residents since Hoffman’s initial email was forwarded to her.

Apart from a few special circumstances, “school principals and/or administrators are never justified in using race to classify or separate students,” Scruggs said. “Christine Hoffman lacked a basic understanding of what it means for an administration to be colorblind and not favor one class or race of students over another.”

In her own letter to parents, Hoffman seemed to agree with Scruggs’ assessment.

“As a white woman leading a predominately black school, I am approaching this as an opportunity to learn,” she wrote. “Although I have participated in training on diversity and implicit bias, this recent incident makes it clear that I need to seek additional opportunities to apply racial sensitivity and cultural competence in my work.”

Is USA the most racist country in the world?

Top 5 Most Racist Countries in the World!!!

 

As human beings, we have come a long way and we have overcome a lot of great difficulties. Be it war, disease, natural calamities, man-made disasters, you name it and we have crossed it.  And our newly connected 21st century is really making a difference to close the gaps where the ignorance of racism exists.   But we are clearly not there yet.

Although there are many in international community doing their best to spread the message of love and unity and more people from different cultures are connecting like never before at speeds that are changing our world, sometimes if feels like its falls on deaf ears – rape, bigotry, murders, sexual abuse, racism, homophobia, slavery, human trafficking, and war crimes are still with us everyday.  And out of these horrible destructive endeavors, racism is something no one deserves to endure but here we are still dealing with its ignorance and ugliness.

So to shine a light and encourage discourse, I have compiled my list of the top 5 racist countries in the world. Read it and then comment below to let me know if you agree or have other nominees.  

Here goes:

(1) India

A land of so much diversity is also the most racist country in the world. Indians are the most racist people in the world and even today, a child born in the Indian family is taught to worship anyone with white skin and look down upon anyone with dark skin. And thus was born the Indian racism against Africans and other dark skinned people. A fair skinned foreigner gets treated like a god and a dark skinned one is treated very badly.Among Indians themselves too there are conflicts between castes and people from different regions like the problem between Marathi Manoos and Biharis. And yet, Indians won’t accept this fact and boast about the culture and diversity and acceptance. 

(2) Pakistan

Pakistan is an Islamic majority country and even then, there are many conflicts that take place there between the two sects of Shia and Sunni. There have been crimes between the two sects for ages and nothing is being done about it. Apart from that, the long war with the neighbor India is something that is known to all the world. There have been incidences of racism between Indians and Pakistanis. Apart from that, other races like Africans and Latin Americans are also discriminated against.

(3)  Russia

In Russia, a lot of Xenophobia and ‘nationalist’ feelings still prevail. Even today, Russians are racist towards the people whom they feel are not ethnically and truly Russians. Apart from that, they are racist towards Africans, Far Asians, Caucasians, Chinese etc. It culminates with hate and later develops into gross crimes against humanity. The Russian government, along with UN have tried to do their best to stop such incidences of racism but they still continue to take place in not only the remote places but also big cities.

(4) Israel

Israel has been in the midst of controversy since its’ inception in 1948.  And it has been so because of the crimes committed against the people of Palestine and the Israeli Arabs.  After the World War 2, a new state was carved out for Jewish European immigrants,  The original inhabitants of the land were forced to become refugees in their own land. Thus began the ongoing conflict between the imported peoples of Israel and the local indigenous Palestinian peoples.  Today, we clearly see the clash of what many believe is their Euro-superior tribe over the so-called ignorant uncultured local peoples.   Israel continues to struggle with treating its’ non-Jewish citizens and occupied peoples as pariahs.

(5)  United States of America

The land of the free and the land of the brave also happens to be the land of some of the most racist people in the world. Although the picture some see of USA is through a rose-tinted glass and it all seems flowers and butterflies, the actual case is quite different.

In the Deep South and Mid-West regions like Arizona, Missouri, Mississippi etc, racism is an everyday thing. Be it against Asians, Africans, South Americans or even the actual people of USA the Native Americans. Cases of hate and hate due to color of skin are ever-increasing.

And with the rise of race baiting self-described superior genes smarter than everyone else Josef Mengele-esque superior race national politician Donald Trump and his millions of followers who openly belong to racist organizations ie… Klu Klux Klan, the covers have been lifted of he USA where racism is proudly displayed out in the open and broadcast across the international airwaves for all to see.

USA BRANDED Eastern Caribbean a Transit Point For Drug Traffickers!!!


The US State Department, has been branded the Eastern Caribbean has a “transit point for drug traffickers going to the United States and Europe”.

The department’s International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR), released this month, claims that the Eastern Caribbean hosts abundant transhipment points for illicit narcotics, primarily from Venezuela destined for North American, European and domestic Caribbean markets.

According to the report, marijuana remains the most commonly used illicit drug within the region and many of the homicides in the seven countries occur as a result of turf wars between factions fighting for control of drug distribution.

The report named St Vincent as a primary source for cannabis in the Eastern Caribbean.

Data provided to the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) indicates that, during the first nine months of last year, drug seizures in the Eastern Caribbean totalled 196.65 metric tons of marijuana and 1,103.8 kg of cocaine, along with 159 drug trafficking-related arrests.

According to the State Department, law enforcement capacity in the region is under increasing stress and, while Eastern Caribbean governments made some improvements, their criminal codes remained antiquated.

The US encouraged the seven countries to continue to pass legislation to modernize their criminal codes, making use of regional best practices in fighting transnational organized crime.

The US asserted that “in some countries, leaders failed to address public concerns about official corruption,” compounding the problem.

The INSCR nevertheless pointed out that: “As a matter of policy, the region’s governments do not encourage or facilitate the illicit production or distribution of narcotic or psychotropic drugs or other controlled substances, or the laundering of proceeds from illegal drug transactions.

“No senior government officials in the Eastern Caribbean were prosecuted for engaging in or facilitating the illicit production or distribution of controlled drugs or laundering of proceeds from illegal drug transactions.

“Nonetheless, many observers believe that drug trafficking organizations sometimes elude law enforcement through bribery, influence, or coercion.”

Corned Beef Ban in Caribbean Amid Rotten Meat Scandal!!!


Several countries have gone as far as banning all meat and meat products from Brazil, where it is alleged that companies involved in the illegal practice paid hefty bribes to auditors in exchange for fraudulent sanitary licences.

Several Caribbean countries have ordered the immediate ban on the sale and importation of corned beef from Brazil, following reports that several major meat processors in the South American nation have been selling rotten beef and poultry.

The European Union, China and Chile decided to halt some meat imports from the South American country, and Jamaica was the first Caribbean country to follow suit, with the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries saying the companies implicated by the Brazilian authorities in the scandal supply 99.5 per cent of the corned beef on the local market.

Minister Karl Samuda yesterday called an emergency meeting with officials from the Ministry of Health, the Consumer Affairs Commission, the Bureau of Standards Jamaica, the National Compliance Regulatory Authority, and the Jamaica Customs Agency. The ministry also convened a meeting with major distributors and importers of corned beef.

Besides the temporary ban, a temporary hold has been placed on all permits for the importation of corned beef from Brazil; and all corned beef is being pulled from supermarket shelves.

In the interim, the ministry said the Bureau of Standards Jamaica will conduct chemical test profiles to ascertain the contents of corned beef on the market, and the ministry’s Veterinary Services Division will conduct microbiological and residue tests to ascertain whether contaminants are present in the products on the local market.

Jamaican conglomerate Grace Kennedy, although complying with a directive to withdraw from sale its corned beef from Brazil, said in a release last night that its suppliers in Brazil have consistently qualified for and retained the British Retail Consortium (BRC) standard which sets out stringent requirements related to manufacturing, food safety and quality control systems.

“As a result of this issue, a team from Grace Foods has planned an urgent trip to Brazil to meet with our suppliers and do further investigations around the concerns raised. The company has already been working proactively with retailers to pull the product from the shelves in the Jamaican market and intends to do the same in all affected markets,” it said, adding that consumers would be fully refunded for Grace Corned Beef returned to any retailer.
