Kirk Franklin’s Sister Sentenced to 30 Years in Prison

Gospel great Kirk Franklin recently posted on Instagram that his sister has been sentenced to 30 years in prison. He doesn’t mention why she’s been incarcerated.

He goes on to say “…I now feel the weight of wondering if I could’ve done more.” Sounds like he’s blaming himself.

Let’s keep Kirk Franklin and his family in prayer for strength, and healing.

No Bail for Minor Offenses in Orange/Osceola Counties

Shout out to State Attorney Aramis Ayala! She’s working to reform our “justice” system.

As part of that reform she announced Wednesday that Orange and Osceola County Prosecutors will no longer force those accused of low-level offenses to post bail.

Attorney Ayala said this would end a “poverty penalty” that poor defendants cannot afford.

That new policy goes into effect June 1st.

Spotify should ban Chris Brown, Eminem, others after R. Kelly music ban, women’s group says

Women’s advocacy group Ultraviolet wants Spotify to extend its artist ban beyond R. Kelly and XXXTentacion to other musicians who have been accused of sexual misconduct, including Chris Brown, Nelly, Eminem, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Don Henley, Steven Tyler and 6ix9ine. “[These] two men are not the only abusers on your platform. We implore you to take a deeper look at the artists you promote,” the organization’s executive director Shaunna Thomas wrote in an open letter Monday to Spotify head Daniel Ek. “Every time a famous individual continues to be glorified despite allegations of abuse, we wrongly perpetuate silence by showing survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence that there will be no consequences for abuse,” the group wrote. “That has a cultural effect far beyond one individual artist.” Last week, Spotify announced a new policy to curb content that “expressly and principally promotes, advocates, or incites hatred or violence against a group or individual based on characteristics, including, race, religion, gender identity, sex, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, veteran status, or disability.” The policy change went into effect following a #MuteRKelly social media movement sparked by the multiple allegations of sex abuse against the artist. Spotify no longer actively promotes the artist’s music, though the songs are still available on the service. As of May 10, Kelly’s music was no longer be available on the site’s editorial or algorithmic playlists, including Discover Weekly, New Music Friday, RapCaviar and any of the platform’s popular genre- or mood-based playlists. The Grammy-winning artist has been accused of many crimes over the years and allegedly “held women against their will in a cult” at his homes in two cities, including one in metro Atlanta. He has denied the accusations and is currently not facing any charges. In 2008, Kelly was acquitted on 14 charges of making child pornography. In a statement to Billboard, Spotify said, “We don’t censor content because of an artist’s or creator’s behavior, but we want our editorial decisions—what we choose to program—to reflect our values. When an artist or creator does something that is especially harmful or hateful, it may affect the ways we work with or support that artist or creator.”

Watch: Deleted Scene from “Black Panther”

Can’t get enough of the iconic box office record breaking hit movie “Black Panther?”

Check out a deleted scene that digs a little deeper into the relationship between General Okoye and her husband W’Kabi.

They discuss what’s more important, loyalty to each other or Wakanda?

Of course we know where the General stands! She made that perfectly clear near the end of the movie….without question!

A fine job of acting from Danai Gurira and Daniel Kaluuya.
