Matt Calkins Of The Seattle Times Should Be Fired!!

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

My opinions on Seattle Times sports writer Matt Calkins AGAIN putting a African American on blast in his articles in the Times. He has done this over and over and over again. In my opinion Matt Calkins should be fired asap!!

gordonandmichealbennettTo my many FB friends the following is kind of long but it is my true feelings on the BOGUS charge against former Seahawk Michael Bennett. It is how I feel. It is a reply to motor mouth Matt Calkins of the Times who has made a habit of putting Bennett/Sherman on blast in the Times sports section. He should be fired!! PLEASE READ BELOW.
———————————————————————————————————
AGAIN Matt Calkins is giving his one-sided white man’s views on a black man in the white owned media..The Times. A opinion on a intelligent, educated African American man in Bennett who is bold enough to challenge racism in America which has got worse with the fella in the White House.

Bennett also speaks out against police who has shot unarmed black men OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN WITHOUT WHITE OFFICERS NOT SPENDING ONE DAY IN JAIL for their actions!! Hell Bennett has also spoke about the shooting and killing of the African American sista Charleena Lyles by the police in the area.
——————————————————————————————————-

BREAKING NEWS: TWO WHITE POLICE OFFICERS IN BATON ROUGE, LA WILL NOT BE CHARGED IN THE TERRIBLE AND WRONG KILLING OF 37 YEAR OLD ALTON STERLING. Again white police kill a African American and will NOT spend ONE DAY in jail and will NOT be charged!

Another black man has been shot and killed in Sacremento. Will the white officers who killed this African American brotha be charged? HELL NO!!!
——————————————————————————————————-

So we in the black community know black folks will NEVER see a white police officer get charged and convicted of killing a black man or lady. NEVER!! Including in Texas!!! These are some of the issues Michael Bennett AND Richard Sherman were bold enough to speak out about off the field.

So all of sudden in Trump loving Texas (who has a governor who is a friend and a tremendous supporter of Trump) Bennett a 6-4 265 pound HUGE black man is charged with pushing a 66 year old paraplegic lady after New England won the Super Bowl last year. A game in which Bennett’s brother won as a member of NE. GIVE ME A FREAKIN BREAK!! This is a bunch of BS!! PLUS THEIR IS NO VIDEO OF THE ALLEGED INCIDENT!!!!!!!

When I saw all those white policemen in Texas hold that bogus press conference about the bogus charges on Michael Bennett I thought about racism against black folks in the 60′s in Selma, Alabama or in Mississippi.

Don’t get it twisted, IF Bennett did what he is charged with then BENNETT IS WRONG!! But in my strong opinion this is all about a outspoken, intelligent and educated African American man who has spoken out AGAINST white officers killing unarmed black folks, being retaliated against by white folks in a state that supports one of worse so called President’s already in American history!! a ALLEGED INCIDENT THAT HAPPENED MORE THAN A YEAR AGO!!!!!!

Finally I continue to see Matt Calkins give his opinions on African Americans here in the Times. Calkins KNOWS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT OUR AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURE AND LIFESTYLE AND KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT THE DAILY RACISM WE BLACK FOLKS DEAL WITH EACH AND EVERY DAY IN WHITE AMERICA!!

It can be blatant or subtle but we African Americans deal with racism everyday when we walk out our doors. Has Calkins experienced this as white man putting African Americans on blast in the white owned Times? HELL NO!!

To have this blog with this title (“REACTIONS TO MICHAEL BENNETT ARREST WARRANT SHOWS THAT FACTS DON’T MATTER”) AGAIN Matt Calkins as well as many other folks who have left their comments here are brainless with it comes to what black men like me or even a black man with money in Bennett go though EVERYDAY in white America. THESE CHARGES AGAINST BENNETT ARE BOGUS!!! REAL TALK!!! And again MATT CALKINS SHOULD BE FIRED BY THE TIMES!!

T.I. Wants To Help Kids With Their Education

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

t.i.To many times we hear about hip-hop/rap artists maybe getting in trouble or going to jail for one reason or another. The media will jump right on it when a hip-hop/rap artists is in trouble. This is for sure.

But check this out readers. How about when these artists do things on the positive tip? Do we hear about it like we hear about when these artists get in trouble? The answer is no. I have saw articles where artists buy Xmas gifts for the needy. Buy turkeys and Thanksgiving dinners for the needy and even buy a car for someone who needs a car to go to work. And much more.

Problem is you have to search for the story. This is unfair ladies and gentlemen.  Rapper and actor T.I. is doing something real positive for the youth we need to know about this readers.

He recently announced a partnership with music streaming service Tidal to launch the “Money Talk With Tip For Education” program. Now though June 15th participants can sign up to raise funding for their projects on spreading education awareness via Crowdrise. Then they can be able to post their Crowdrise projects via social media channels using the hashtag #TIDALXMONEYTALK in order to be considered eligible for the education challenge. This is great what T.I. is doing.

The top five finalists will have the chance to get the amount they raised matched by T.I. and Tidal.  Enriching the lives of today’s youth is something the Atlanta native knows all too well. The father of seven says his involvement in the education challenge is an natural extension of his own daily duties at home.

On June 15 Tidal will reveal the five finalists who have raised the most funding on its site. Then on June 22, T.I.and Tidal will announce and will match the donations of the official winner by up to a whopping $250,000 which will be used towards launching the winner’s proposed project.

T.I. does more than this folks. He is making his name known not for not just being a great rapper and being a actor in movies and on t.v. but he is making his name known as a person who cares about inner city youth not just in the ATL but everywhere. This is a good look for T.I.

Actress Lindsey Lohan Sent Back To Jail

ARTICLE FROM yahoo.com (Full story click here)

Why am I writing about actress Lindsey Lohan? Because it is a story of a young Hollywood female who has had problems because of the way she was brought up. And also about a person who thinks she is above the law. And because of a story about the dangers of drugs.

Lohan needs help and needs help now! And if it takes jail to make her fly right then so be it readers. This is Lohan’s third time going to jail. She needs to stay their until she learns about the law and learns about the problems of using drugs.

Her sorry dad, Micheal Lohan I feel is the blame for Lindsey’s problems and her mom too. He has had drug and alcohol problems and has been in jail himself. So sorry to say, like dad like daughter I guess.

Recently I saw on the net that Lindsey’s 16 year old sister Ali has taken pics in a skimpy dress for Lindsey’s clothing line. Is she the next Lohan to have problems?

Lindsey’s story is a story of a young and talented Hollywood star gone bad. It will take jail time to make Lindsey do the right thing. If not, this story will end up terrible. This is for sure.

To many times folks say people with money get breaks. I hope Lohan does not get any more breaks. She needs to stay in jail for awhile and learn a few things. Now she is going to jail for 30 days. Here is a question. Will she get out early this time? We will see.        Gordon Curvey

Breaking News: T.I. Arrested For Suspicion Of Possessing Marijuana

ARTICLE FROM 979kissfm.com (Full story click here)

Rapper T.I. was arrested along with his wife Tiny for suspicion of possessing marijuana in West Hollywood, California.

Officers pulled the car over T.I. and his wife were in and smelled bud and they were arrested. They posted a $10,000 bail and was released.

When I first saw this information on T.I. I said…..WHAT THE HELL!!!! Of course you are innocent until proven guilty but I thought T.I. was going to do his best to stay out of trouble after a serving time in jail for weapons possession charges. I guess I was wrong.

After T.I. was released from prison he went on a big tour of schools and community centers to speak with kids about staying in school and getting a good education and staying out of trouble etc. And now this. I am VERY disappointed in T.I. if these charges are true.

T.I. should remember he was given another change to be a role model kids can look up too. A chance to be a leader in the hip-hop game and out of it too. Guess he did not want to be a role model folks. Guess he was fooling us.

Readers what guys like T.I. and folks in the public eye (even myself) need to realize is that we are people young folks look at to be leaders and role models. We do not need to be hanging out at clubs until 2am or we do not need to be beating up people or even our ladies or girlfriends or vise versa.

If these charges against T.I. and even Tiny are true I will be VERY disappointed. Remember Tiny, the wife of T.I., is a former member of the singing group Xscape and a star of a reality show. So young ladies look up to her too.

I will be giving you more details on the arrest of T.I. and Tiny right here on the #1 urban website in the Northwest…..”Music Inner City News Magazine”   This is “One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Music Inner City News Magazine Bio: T.I.

BIO FROM wikipedia.com (Full bio click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

(Listen to “Music Inner City Internet Radio”  Classic soul, new and recent music, interviews, and more. Click the “Ustream Live” link above. It is 24/7!)

T.I. has had a very very interesting life in twenty or so years on earth. Jail terms, millions of cd’s sold, acting in movies and more.

No one can deny this cat has talent behind the mic and in front of the camera as a actor. T.I. can act. Unlike other rappers, he has a long career ahead of him as a entertainer. If he can stay out of trouble. The question is, can he?

I think T.I. can do wonders in going into inner city schools and talking to the youth about staying in school and staying away from guns and violence etc. Of course he has done a lot of that since his release from jail for weapons charges. He can be a tremendous role model. And you know what? What I read, he is trying to be just that. A role model kids can look up to. That is great!

Congrats to T.I. and his lady Tiny who recently tied the knot. I am happy for Tiny and T.I. By watching Tiny’s reality program, it seems she is a great lady and a great mom.

Great things are ahead for T.I. in music and in Hollywood. Let’s hope he stays out of trouble. I think he will do it. He has to many kids who are looking up to him as a role model.

Please say a prayer for me as I enter Swedish Hospital here in Seattle (Aug 4th) for lung cancer surgery. For which I am very nervous but I have to have it done.

This is a wake up call for me. I have never spent time in a hospital. I hope this operation will have me back to good health. I have to many things to do. And thanks everyone for your prayers ad concern.      Gordon Curvey/Music Inner City
