In the video caption, May described how he reported the video to management but was shut down and sent home. 'Every time I tried to talk, they told me to shut up,' he said.

    A food service employee at Detroit’s Comerica Park was fired this week after footage of him spitting into a pizza went viral on Instagram. The employee, identified as Jaylon Kerley by WXYZ, was also arrested, according to officials who spoke with the outlet. Footage of Kerley spitting into the pizza was first shared to Instagram by a fellow employee, who said in subsequent comments that he, too, was terminated for posting the video. He added that the employee spat in the video "[because] the supervisor kept yelling at him" that day. “The customers don’t deserve this!! This is disgusting! And...

    A Wayne County Commissioner on Tuesday unveiled a plan for new limits, taxes, mental screening and background checks on the sale of ammunition. District 6 Commissioner Reggie “Reg” Davis, a radio host who entered politics after his brother was fatally shot, announced the multi-pronged proposal at a press conference held at his family’s mausoleum space. In addition to calling on more controls nationally, the measure would mandate local regulations that would include a mental illness and background check certified by law enforcement prior to each bullet sale — with police handling the transfer. “We’re up against some state and federal...

    A food truck owner in Detroit, Michigan reportedly said she won’t serve police officers or other law enforcement officials because she, along with the “majority” of her customers, “do not feel safe around law enforcement agents.” The owner of Rocky’s Road Brew, Rocky Coronado, wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post on Friday that she is “well within [her] rights to refuse service to law enforcement agents,” such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement and local police officers.

    My wife is a big Tigers fan so I watch a lot of Tigers games. As such, I’m quite familiar with the Fox Sports Detroit broadcast crew of play-by-play man Mario Impemba and color commentator Rod Allen. They’ve been together for years. I think Impemba is one of the better play-by-play guys around and, while not everyone’s cup of tea, Allen — who is, frankly, kinda weird sometimes — sort of grows on you over time. Tigers fans have even developed a drinking game for when he’s on the air that is fun, albeit dangerous for your liver. My favorite...
  • Old-School Eulogy at Aretha Franklin Funeral Ignites Wrath

    09/01/2018 3:45:02 AM PDT · by Cecily · 45 replies
    A fiery, old-school eulogist at the funeral of Aretha Franklin fell flat for many in the crowd and prompted a social media uproar when he declared "black America has lost its soul," black women are incapable of raising sons alone and the Black Lives Matter movement is unfounded in the face of black-on-black crime. And that was just 26 minutes into the nearly 50 minutes of words provided by the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. of Salem Baptist Church in Atlanta as Franklin's marathon funeral wound down Friday. Williams, who also eulogized Franklin's father, minister and civil rights activist C.L. Franklin,...

    A large part of Aretha FranklinÂ’s legacy was a testament to the power of artistic activism and those closest to her made sure that message was crystal clear during her extraordinary homegoing service. Among the many family members, dignitaries, friends and fellow entertainers who took to the pulpit podium during the service at the Greater Grace Temple in FranklinÂ’s hometown of Detroit, Michigan was none other than renowned professor, author and motivational speaker, Michael Eric Dyson. While DysonÂ’s words in their entirety served as a perfect tribute to the fiery spirit of the beloved entertainer, it was his pointed response...

    U.S. officials confirmed that the man considered the most dangerous terrorist in the world after Osama bin Laden and a top al-Qaeda bomb-maker was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2017. Ibrahim al-Asiri, a 37-year-old from Saudi Arabia who is responsible for creating a host of bombs — including the underwear bomb intended to take down a flight from Detroit to Amsterdam on Christmas in 2009 — escaped U.S. strikes in the past, despite a $5 million bounty for his capture since 2014, according to reports by Fox News. Al-Asiri and several associates were standing beside his...

    And Democrats accuse President Trump of racism and name-calling. A Democratic legislator in Michigan actually referred to her Asian opponent in the state senate race as “ching-chang” and “ching-chong.” And Rep. Bettie Cook Scott was not caught making the repeated remarks behind the scenes but in public, outside polling stations during this week’s primaries, according to the Detroit Metro Times. Allegedly insulting her Democrat opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang, Scott also reportedly attacked one of Chang’s campaign volunteers as an “immigrant” and said “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

    By this point in the Interstate 696 rebuild project, state transportation officials had envisioned drivers headed eastbound would have been shifted to new concrete paved on the westbound side. That hasn't happened -- yet. A spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Transportation said Thursday the changeover likely will take place the week of August 20. "Early plans did expect the traffic shift to be in late July, but it's up to the contractor to organize his work crew and locations," Diane Cross of MDOT's communications staff said in an email. "As long as he meets the contract reopening date in...

    In Michigan's state Senate race, Democrat Rep. Bettie Cook Scott had the perfect vote-getting pitch in her primary race against fellow Democrat, Rep. Stephanie Chang: "Don't vote for the ching-chong." According to Detroit's Metro Times: Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as "ching-chang" and "the ching-chong" to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday's election.  She's also said to have called one of Chang's campaign volunteers an "immigrant," saying "you don't belong here" and "I want you out of my country." Chang and Scott were running in the Democratic primary for state Sen. District 1.  Chang won the election...

Whoosh! Dropping the fur—it’s an old gospel move, a gesture of emotional abandon, of letting loose. – Soul Survivor Ah, such sweet sadness; the lights in Detroit - which only recently began to glow a bit again - will be a bit dimmer tonight as the curtain comes down on one of Motown’s great ones.
