Earlier this week Pepsi released a controversial commercial poking fun at the Black Lives Matter movement. In the infamous commercial which starred Kendal Jenner, It was clear that some sort of protest was going on. Jenner, who was in a photoshoot at the time,quickly left to see what all the commotion was about. When she realized it was a protest she instantly grabbed a Pepsi and handed it to the rather calm police officers Simultaneously the protest ended and it was a celebration. It seems as if Pepsi doesn’t know how serious this issue is. People of color are loosing their lives everyday due to the negligence of police officers. Is this something that could be solved simply by drinking a Pepsi? If someone had just given Sandra Bland a Pepsi maybe she would still be alive.

How can you accuse someone of being a lesbian (or in the closet) when you are a closet lesbian yourself? Well, that’s exactly what Porsha did in this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. During dinner, Marlow asked Kandi if she swam in the lady pond. Everyone at the table was in complete shock and wondered where this information came from. Porsha was the ring leader. So you can only imagine the look on everyone’s face when Sheree revealed that the person who had been talking about Kandi and her sexual preference was none other than Porsha herself. Phaedra, who also spoke on Kandi’s sexual preference in another conversation, sat nervously hoping no one would bring up her name as well.
The two ladies, Porsha and Kandi, met up for lunch at a later date to discuss what went on at the dinner. Things got heated and secrets were disclosed like: Porsha did have sex with Kandi’s “baby daddy”, Todd and Kandi indulge in threesomes, and Porsha tongue kissed Kandi and entertained the idea of performing oral sex.
During this episode, we also learned that Apollo and Phaedra’s divorce is FINAL! Todd, Porsha’s new boyfriend was fired from his job. Riley is disappointed in her dad for not hanging out with her. According to the definition of her fellow cast mates, Cynthia wonders if she is a lesbian.
This is getting way too good to miss! Leave your comments below, tell me what you think!

Pine Bluff residents have been working hard for over a year on recommendations. These recommendations would make the quality of life better for not only residents of Pine Bluff but anyone passing through. Mary Pringos, chairwoman of the task force, estimated that this plan will take at least two years. The pillars created by this plan include but are not limited to economic development, infrastructure, education, and quality of life. Pringos stated, “It’s important for people to see change on the front end.” Although we know that this will not happen overnight, it’s an operation that is long overdue.
Dylann Roof, the man who killed nine African American church members while they attended bible study, is now awaiting to see if he will get sentenced to the death penalty. On Wednesday Roof addressed the jury saying ” There is nothing wrong with me psychologically.”
A jailhouse journal was presented as new evidence. In the infamous journal there were writings that stated “I do not regret what I did. I am not sorry, and I feel pity that I had to give up my life because of a situation that should have never existed.”
The boys and girls club has always been known to be a great organization for kids. They provide a way for kids to interact with each other in a safe environment. The boys and girls clubs are best known for there after school programs. If you actually visit the club you will notice its a lot more than just kids waiting around on there parents to get off work. Most kids love just being part of a team such as basketball and volleyball. What took my breath away is that they have tutors, ,mentors, and a free meal ( which could possibly be some of these kids only meal).
Fox 16 recognized the Boys and Girls club in Jacksonville, Arkansas. The CEO of this club is Laconda Watson. She is currently in the process of looking for grants for the Jacksonville location. They have had a lot of budget cuts and because of this some of her loyal workers were out of jobs. Mike Williams happened to be one of those workers. Williams was so dedicated to these kids that he continued to work even after his job was cut. The boys and girls club raised enough money to continue to pay Williams and even though he doesn’t receive his benefits he continues to work.
Jacksonville agreed to give them 50,000 but it is only to be used for maintenance. There is so much more that needs to be done. Without the help of the mentors I’m not sure where these children would be. Just last year more than 40 kids were arrested for committing crimes.
Littlerocknews would like to thank mentors like Mike Williams and Laconda Watson for pushing to be that positive influence for the children!!
