Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins rose to fame as an actress, singer and member of the popular 90s musical group TLC – all while quietly battling sickle cell disease. Now, she is lending her famous voice to encourage people, especially those in the African American community, to join the Be The Match Registry® as potential bone marrow donors and help others – like 11-year-old Imani Cornelius – fight similar life-threatening diseases.

Watkins has partnered with Be The Match® on two public service announcements. The PSAs will hit the airwaves and the Internet in July, which is African American Bone Marrow Awareness Month. Donor registry drives will also take place nationwide throughout the month. Read more…

It Needs To Be CED: ALL Police Corruption NEEDS to be Exposed!

Once again, corruption in the ranks of the New York Police Department and it’s not getting the type of publicity it needs to get. In today’s news, it’s reported (No, it’s not front page headline) that Sergeant William Eiseman,  accepted a deal that calls for him to serve weekends in jail for three months. His crime? First-degree perjury and official misconduct. He was also training subordinates how to falsify records and commit perjury, yet, he was only sentenced to serve an approximate 24 days in jail for a crime that carries a maximum sentence of seven years? Why is it that this isn’t newsworthy? You have a police SERGEANT pleading guilty to falsifying records and his excuse was he had the right intent, although what he did was illegal. Yet, the media gets all up in arms about Anthony Wiener showing photos of his genitals via Twitter yet this news barely gets mentioned!

What amazes me is that this police officer, SWORN to uphold the law, actually broke them to try to get convictions, yet, he is sentenced to 24 DAYS in jail. What is wrong with this picture? How are we to know that this isn’t widespread? Where are the politicians on this? How come this isn’t front page headlines? What does Mayor Bloomberg have to say about this? Read more…
