NAACP Issues Travel Advisory to Black People Traveling with American Airlines

NAACP Issues Travel Advisory to Black People Traveling with American Airlines
(FreshAsFrankie) The NAACP is issuing a travel advisory for travelers flying American Airlines over a series of reported incidents that indicate “troublesome conduct” from many of the airline’s employees. In a press release Tuesday, the NAACP said the incidents “suggest a corporate culture of racial insensitivity and possible racial bias on the part of American Airlines.”

The reported incidents in the NAACP press release range from an African American passenger having their seating assignment changed without their knowledge to an African American mother and her infant child being removed from a New York-to-Atlanta flight after she “asked that her stroller be retrieved from checked baggage before she would disembark.”According to the NAACP, the advisory was issued Tuesday and will last indefinitely.

American Airlines spokeswoman Stephanie Gilson said in a response:

“We are disappointed to hear about this travel advisory as our team members – a diverse community of gate agents, pilots, and flight attendants – are proud to serve customers of all backgrounds. With that said, we understand there is more to do,” she said. “We will invite representatives of the NAACP to meet with our team at our headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas.”

We will keep you updated on any developments on the travel advisory.

Judge Rules That Rapper Tay-K Will Be Tried as an Adult in Murder Case

  
(FreshAsFrankie) Texas-born rapper Tay-K was scheduled to appear in court today (August 31), but his date was postponed. Tay-K, born Tamor McIntyre, is facing capital murder charges, which carries a life imprisonment sentence or the death penalty.

Tay-K’s appearance was postponed due to lack of evidence. His lawyer, James McMillan, spoke earlier this week about Tay-K’s case. McMillan, who previously represented Kodak Black, sai: “The Race” rapper “has this dire situation on his back, but this opportunity on the other hand. I’m tasked with trying to make sure we maximize his opportunities so he can mount as strong of a criminal defense as possible.”

New York Times reporter Joe Coscarelli spoke to McMillan on Wednesday (August 30), and he was told that Tay-K would be tried as an adult in the case. The judge told Tay-K that the decision to move the case to adult court had no bearing of his guilt or innocence the case, and added that officers testified that there was no evidence that the rapper had weapons or engaged in any violent acts. McMillan went on to say that he believes Tay-K will be exonerated on all the charges.

Mystikal Turns Himself in on Alleged Rape Charges
(FreshAsFrankie) Mystikal Turns Himself in on Alleged Rape Charges
This past weekend, rapper Mystikal was charged with first-degree rape. Because of that, a warrant was issued for his arrest. The Shreveport Police Department was on the hunt for Mystikal, along with a man named Averweone Holman, who cops believed was a part of the crime as well. U.S. Marshals ended up tracking down and arresting Holman in Texas this past Friday. Investigators on the scene noted that they collected evidence that matches the DNA of Mystikal, along with Holman.

Now, news has arrived that Mystikal has turned himself into the Caddo Parrish Sheriff’s Department in Louisiana. The warrant for the arrest allegedly comes from a 2016 incident at a Louisiana casino where Mystikal was supposedly set to perform. No more details beyond that have been provided, and according to Mystikal’s team, the charges and allegations are false. Currently, Mystikal’s bond is $2 million.
