Before she was “Missy Misdemeanor” she was Melissa Arnette Elliott, born on July 1, 1971 in Portsmouth, Virginia. Hailing from humble beginnings as the only child of a power company dispatcher and a welder at Portsmouth’s lauded naval shipyard, she rose to become a platinum recording artist with over 30-million albums sold. All this without even once owning a slave.

Getting this statue put up will be a lot of work and you may ask yourself is it worth it? I say yes and ask you to join me in letting us work it. Together we can put white supremacy down, flip it and reverse it. So far, it’s been signed by about 25,000 people. You can go here to read the whole thing.

The Atlanta Falcons Trained With Navy Seals To Prepare For Successful Season

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan appeared on The Rich Eisen Show on Monday following his team’s 34 to 23 victory over the Packers on Sunday night.  He talked a little about the win, how they did it and how they can improve, but the most interesting part was when Ryan discussed a little bit about the Falcons’ offseason training.
Ryan revealed that one thing Coach Dan Quinn had the team do during offseason was train with a group of Navy SEALS to learn how to mentally move on to the next “mission” or opportunity which Ryan says brought the team closer together. Diving deeper into Coach Quinn’s mindset, Ryan says since the first day Quinn stepped into the building he constantly talks about the most important day or meeting being the one that you’re in at the moment. It’s something that Quinn lives by and that mindset has translated to the team.

Chance the Rapper + Donald Glover"s MixTape Collaboration Is ‘Probably’ Happening

There have been rumors of a Chance the Rapper/Donald Glover mixtape pretty much since the two of them burst onto the national scene, but aside from a few live appearances together and the occasional single collaboration under Glover’s stage name Childish Gambino (which he’s allegedly retired), there haven’t been much more than just rumors.
But last night, after Glover became the first black person to win an Emmy for directing a comedy, he put some real weight to the rumors, saying it was “probably” going to happen. “I feel like if I don’t make a Chance the Rapper mixtape, a double mixtape, a bunch of 14-year-olds are gonna kick my a–. They stop me on the street and it scares me. It kind of scares me.”

Between playing the new, young Lando in Ron Howard’s Han Solo movie; Simba in Jon Favreau’s Lion King movie, and writing, directing and producing his own Atlanta series for FX, it’d be sort of wild if Glover found time to record anything in the next five years or so. But then, the dude h…
