Many of us had watch this horrifying video of a black South African been forced into a coffin while pleading desperately for his life. I shouted at my computer. At the end of the video I wanted to know more. “Is he dead?” “Has the authorities seen this video?” “Will anything be done about it?” I, like many people could hardly watch. I covered one of my eyes while peaking from the other. I was afraid for this stranger that I did not know. I was angry as I thought to myself, “is this still happening in South Africa?”
The history of Apartheid in South Africa is a very painful one. The majority of the world fought with South Africa against the wicked system of Apartheid and the pain and memory still lives with us. Some of us was never born in the time of Apartheid but the story had been told to us.

‘Racist’ Chinese exhibit with photos of black people next to animals shut down
A photography exhibit showing black people side-by-side with wild animals has been pulled in China, following accusations of racism.
‘This Is Africa’, which opened at the Hubei Provincial Museum in the central Chinese city of Wuhan shortly before National Day in early October, was well-received by some critics. Zhao Yingxin, president of the China Photographic Publishing House, called it “perceptive, smart and visually impactful,” adding that the photos seemed to “leap out of the screen,”according to Shanghaiist.
But not everyone felt the same way. In a post that’s now been deleted, Instagram user Edward Duke wrote: “The Hubei Provincial Museum put pictures of a particular race next to wild animals why? Are they the only race to have impoverished looking people?”
The exhibit juxtaposed photos of black Africans with those of animals. In one picture, a boy with his mouth open is shown next to an image of a gorilla, while in another a man is compared to a chimpanzee and a lion. All the pictures were taken by businessman and vice-chairman of the Hubei Photographers Association, Yu Huiping, who traveled to Africa many times to get the images.The pictures were removed this week following complaints, including from local residents.
There were multiple false reports on many prominent media houses and even International media houses reporting the Rapper Nelly was charged with alleged rape. Jamaica Live was one of the only outlets which did not report the false story but waited for further information. The Rapper refuted the story and we now have an update.
TMZ who one of the media houses who reported the false story is now reporting the woman who accused Nelly of rape is refusing to testify, and wants the whole matter dropped.
According to TMZ, Nelly's attorney Scott Rosenblum tells them the accusers' "reckless accusation, once investigated thoroughly, was exposed for what it was-a fabrication. A fabrication that has caused Nelly and his family to suffer emotionally and financially." He's not satisfied though, and says he wants a public apology from the woman, and will recommend Nelly consider taking legal action against her".
TMZ went on further to write, "[t]he woman's attorney, Karen Koehler, says her client has told the Auburn PD in Washington State, and the King County D.A. to "put a halt to the criminal investigation of [Nelly]. She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him."ZKoehler says the young woman feels the system has failed her and she can't stand up to a celebrity. "Who will believe her. People are saying horrible things already. She cannot handle this. She is about to break."
Koehler added ... the woman was especially dismayed by the fact police told the media she had met with them and prosecutors -- after she was assured no one would know about the meeting until the investigation was closed. TMZ

The rapper proclaimed his innocence of the this alleged second degree rape charge. The statement from Nelly’s lawyer reads~ "Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation," attorney Scott Rosenblum writes in a statement released to Page Six, among other publications. "Our initial investigation, clearly establishes, this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation."
