The "Master List" For Proof That Tupac Shakur Is Alive?




As Seen On Tumblr:

*click links below*

It is suspected Tupac faked his own death and is currently releasing music under aliases. His latest suspected front man, so to speak, is Kasinova Tha Don (now K Prince). But this is far from the first time an artist has been accused of being a lip-sync artist for Tupac. Listen to some of the other suspected aliases and decide for yourself: are they Tupac? (Also see: 2004 RapWorlds.com Forum post allegedly written by 2pac attacking Jay-Z for using “Me And My Girlfriend” + more!)

Space Jam 2 Confirmed For 2016?

LeBron James teams up with the Looney Tunes and other cartoons.


Not official image,

"The 1996 film “Space Jam” will never be confused with “The Godfather” or “No Country for Old Men” in terms of great American cinema. In fact, the movie starring Michael Jordan and watered-down Looney Toons stars (Bugs Bunny’s edgy days of impersonating Hitler were long over by this point) was mostly panned by critics.
But with time comes nostalgia, and suddenly “Space Jam” is considered something of a cult classic. The move is re-watchable, even for adults, as any film which features two scenes featuring banter between Bill Murray and Larry Bird deserves a glance-over. Oh, and all the R. Kelly helps a ton, too.

Petition: Hundreds Of Sex Offenders Names To Be Removed From Maryland's Sex Offender List?


Petition by:
Baltimore, United States

 My name is Barbara Moore; I am a mother, a grandmother and an advocate, who is passionate about bringing awareness to child molestation, sexual abuse and rape.  My daughters were molested by my oldest brother, whom I had him arrested and prosecuted, however he barely did two years in prison for his crime.  Although, I was disappointed he did not get more jail time, I was very happy that he had to register as a sex offender on the Maryland State Sex Offender's Registry.  This registry makes the general public aware of the names, addresses, etc... off the sex offenders that moves into our neighborhoods, which is one of the tools we use to keep ourselves and our children safe. 
     Because of the sexual abuse committed against my daughters I decided to create a organization named" CAN'T CLOSE MY EYES" to become a voice for children and adult survivors of child sexual abuse.  While we are just beginning, we find out that the MARYLAND COURT OF APPEALS RECENTLY RULED TO HAVE HUNDREDS OF SEX OFFENDERS NAMES REMOVED FROM THE MARYLAND STATE SEX OFFENDER'S REGISTRY, because their constitutional rights were being violated because their crimes were committed before October 1995 when the sex offender's registry was implemented and made a law.  This was a huge slap in face to their victims, the residents/parents of Maryland, and the general public as a whole. 
    This decision have me deeply concerned about the safety of the citizens in Maryland, or any other state that these sex offenders will be able to move to without little to no accountability.  These individuals will be placed back into the pool of thousands of sex offenders who live amongst us, and have never been convicted or arrested for their sexual offenses.  When these individuals’ names are removed from the sex offender's registry, they can relocate and become our children's coaches, Sunday school teacher's and scout masters, the mere thought of that is very scary to me.  We as human beings are sometimes too trusting and we try to give people the benefit of the doubt, but when our instincts tell us that something is not right, we should definitely listen to it, because more than likely it is true.  Each time, more than once, when I listened to that instinct and checked the sex offender's registry list, I found that person on there, that my instinct questioned.  With these names removed, from the registry, how will we know who is in our environment and around our families.  Some, individuals on that sex offender's registry list are serial rapist and repeat child molesters, just like my brother who had many victims dating back more than 40 years, however,  he was not exposed, arrested or convicted until 16 years ago.  There is no guarantee that these individuals will not offend again.
    The attorney for these sex offenders argues that the state of Maryland is violating her client's ex post facto or double jeopardy, protections, and civil rights.  WHERE ARE OUR CIVIL RIGHTS AND PROTECTION!   Please sign this petition to request that our Governor Martin O’Malley’s office and the Attorney General office take this battle to the next level, even if it’s the SUPREME COURT to be reexamined,  for the sake of the safety of the citizens of Maryland especially OUR CHILDREN
Signing this petition can not only possibly have the Maryland Courts of Appeals ruling overturned to keep all of the more than 8, 0000 convicted sex offender's names on the Maryland  sex offender's registry, it can also, possibly SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE.

Inside the Apple Watch: the Tech Behind Apple's New Wearable...

Apple_Watch-18

Apple finally took the wraps off its much-rumored Apple Watch on Tuesday, showing off features and functions on the wrist-mounted device, which is poised to shake up the growing wearables industry.
Although the Apple Watch won't be available until early 2015, and there were limited opportunities for even those at the event to touch the device, the technology contained in the Apple Watch is, at first blush, pretty impressive. Let's take a look at what we know so far.

Digital Crown

The Digital Crown on the Apple Watch is something of a throwback as it's a return to the physical rotation mobile controller we saw on the original iPod. In that respect, it almost seems like the Digital Crown is a first-generation curio, destined to be replaced in future iterations.

Ex-FBI Director to Review NFL's Handling of Ray Rice Case?

Rice1

NEW YORK — The NFL says former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III will conduct a probe into how the NFL handled evidence as it investigated domestic violence claims against former Ravens running back Ray Rice.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement Wednesday that the investigation will be overseen by NFL owners John Mara of the New York Giants and Art Rooney of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Goodell said that Mueller will have access to all NFL records.
The NFL's announcement came after a law enforcement official told the AP on condition of anonymity that he sent a tape of Rice striking his then-fiancee at a casino to an NFL executive in April. Goodell has maintained that no one at the league had seen the tape prior to Monday, when it went viral online.

R.I.P: Joan Rivers Dies at 81

Joan Rivers Dead

Joan Rivers, a raucous and often-ubiquitous comedic presence on TV and nightclubs since the 1960s, has died. She was 81. 

"It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers," daughter Melissa said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE. 

"She passed peacefully at 1:17pm surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother. Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated." 

"My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon." 

Rivers stopped breathing during a surgical procedure last week on her vocal cords and had to be rushed from the clinic to Mount Sinai Hospital. 

Her daughter, Melissa immediately flew from Los Angeles to the Manhattan medical facility, where Joan reportedly had been placed in a medically induced coma

Signs You’re In An Abusive Relationship...


Love Lesson: Love Does Not Equal Violence

I receive enough letters from women in abusive relationships that I will be hosting a healing workshop this fall in Philadelphia. Most of these letters ask for advice and next steps. Increasingly, I have also been receiving letters from women who are seeking advice on whether they are being abused or not. This makes sense as partner violence can include physical abuse, emotional abuse, and verbal abuse. We are clear that if someone has physically hit us that we are being abused but there are more insidious ways that abusers strike.
In a past column we had Reverend Kia Granberry share her experience with an abusive relationship. So is it possible to be a woman with seemingly healthy self-esteem to be in an abusive relationship? Absolutely. The reasons why this may happen range from you genuinely wanting to help someone to being so caught up in the positives about a person that you overlook the glaring negatives. However, it is not possible to stay in such a relationship and maintain healthy self-esteem.
This abuse has also been called domestic violence, intimate partner violence, spousal abuse, teen dating violence or family violence. No matter the name or the situation, this is extremely serious.
Please note: I am using the pronoun he to refer to the abuser but abusers can be any gender in relationships of any orientation.

Racism Still Alive: White Girl In Blackface, On Twitter...


We’re not sure if we’re the only site to receive an email from “Sara”, the white girl who was chased off of Twitter after posing in blackface, but we know we weren’t the only site to post about the fiasco.
In an attempt to clear her name, “Sara” or someone with “Sara’s” best interests in mind, is now requesting to have her photo removed from the site because, well, just read her email below:
The photo you are using for your post is illegal under Section 512 of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, considering it is an unsolicited photo of myself posted without my consent or even my parents consent considering I am a minor. I would like it removed immediately, before I have to get my attorney involved. I am issuing a takedown notice under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. I would also like to present that I did not understand the cultural significance of “blackface” and I had innocent intentions. I don’t think it is worth ruining my chances of going to college someday.
Thank you!

"I hope black Twitter continues exposing racists"

"A White Person Can Do Any Terrible Crime And Still Have A TV/Movie Fanbase That Loves Them." ?

"Take a facet of crime, and then look at television shows/movies that feature those criminals as protagonists."

"I mostly want to talk about this as a TV phenomenon, but pick a crime, any crime, and Western media has probably made a movie/TV series/play/etc. with a white person that romanticizes the criminal activity. No matter what, a white person can do whatever terrible crimes and still have a TV/movie fanbase that loves them.
When you see black or brown people committing crimes on screen, you are to see them thugs and criminal masterminds and people to be beat down.
When you see white people committing crimes on screen, you see a three-dimensional portrait of why someone might commit that crime, how criminals are people too, and how you should even love them for the crimes that they commit because they’re just providing for their families or they’ve wronged or they’re just people and not perfect. This is particularly a luxury given to white male characters, since there few white female criminals as protagonists.
If and of the above shows were about black or brown folks, there would be a backlash of (white) people claiming that TV and movies are romanticizing criminals and are treating them too much like heroes and that it will affect viewers and encourage violence and “thuggish” behavior. And yet fictional white criminals get to have a deep fanbase who loves these white criminals, receive accolades and awards, get called amazing television that portray the complexities of human nature. Viewers of these characters see past the atrocious crimes and into their humanity, a luxury that white characters always have while characters of color rarely do. The closest that mainstream TV has come to showing black criminals as main characters is probably The Wire, and even then, the criminals share equal screen time and equal status as main characters as the police trying to stop them.
The idea that crime can be so heavily romanticized and glorified to such a degree is undoubtedly a privilege given to white characters. The next time you hear someone talk about Dexter Morgan or Walter White in a positive way, it may be an opportunity to rethink how white people can always able to be seen as people no matter what they do, while everyone else can be boiled down to nothing but a criminal.
I always felt extremely uncomfortable with this trope because, not only is it racist, but it tends to feed into the already too common propensity society has to humanize, romanticize and exonerate irrevocably terrible white men. Like if you’re a white man and you commit awful crimes, you will likely go down in history as a legendary celebrity and historical figure."

Ferguson Police Slammed With $40 Million Lawsuit?

Police


Several people filed a $40 million federal lawsuit against Ferguson police, St. Louis County Police and a slew of other defendants on Thursday, alleging that their civil rights were violated during police assaults and arrests that took place during the unrest that shook the St. Louis, Missouri, suburb after a white officer killed an unarmed black teenager.
According to news reports, the lawsuit, submitted to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, claims that law enforcement responding to public dissent over the Aug. 9 killing of Michael Brown, 18, treated protesters as if they were war combatants.
The militaristic response to protests, which included tanks and tear gas, was met with even more protests. Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol was put in charge. The Missouri National Guard and law enforcement from surrounding areas descended on the city of about 21,000, as protests raged on West Florissant Avenue.
Each of the plaintiffs, including a 17-year-old, experienced police misconduct between Aug. 11 to 13, according to Reuters. The lawsuit was filed against Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar, Ferguson police officer Justin Cosma, the city of Ferguson and St. Louis County. Several unnamed officers have also been sued.
Plaintiff Tracey White said she and her son, a high-school junior, were waiting for a ride from her husband at a West Florissant Avenue McDonald's after attending an Aug. 13 "peace and love" rally at a Ferguson church, when several rifle-carrying officers told her she was being arrested because she would not "shut up."
Police detained White and her son for five hours at a county jail for failing to disperse.
"It was so horrifying," she said. "We did nothing wrong."
