Rapper Bambino Gold's Body Found Decaying in the Woods in Alabama
(FreshAsFrankie) The bodies of missing rapper Bambino Gold, born Edward Reeves, and his cousin Kendrick Stokes have been found in the woods of Macon County, Alabama. Family members reported the two men missing on Nov. 7th (Tuesday) after they had not been seen or heard from since late Sunday night.

The pair was last seen driving a white 2016 Honda CRV with Georgia tags as they made their way to the Alabama State Fair.

According to the Montgomery Advertiserthe county sheriff Andre Bruson confirmed on Saturday that the bodies of Reeves and Stokes were found in two separate locations: Country Road 13 and Highway 80. Both bodies were located on different days, the first body was discovered on Friday evening around 5 p.m. and the second one was found early Saturday morning.

Reeves’ mother Aieda Harris told reporters, “It’s stressful to think that somebody has done something to your child and you can’t be there to take care of them. It makes you very angry. I’m extremely angry. I try to be a calm person but this is just beyond dealing with. It’s absolutely terrible.”

Bambino Gold was 29 years old and has left behind one child. His cousin Skooly (Kendrick Stokes) was 30-year-old party promoter at the time of their death.

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.

North Korea Disregards Trumps Threat and Fires 3 More Missiles

North Korea Disregards Trumps Threat and Fires 3 More Missiles
(FreshAsFrankie) North Korea disregarded tough talk from President Trump early Saturday, August 26, when the Kim Jong-Un government fired a series of missiles only one week after receiving praise from U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for showing “restraint” in the face of a grave warning from Washington.

Earlier this month North Korea threatened to launch a missile that it projected would come within striking distance of Guam’s shore. The proposal caused a flare up in the already tense atmosphere brought upon the two nations following years of posturing and a recent U.N. resolution to impose sanctions on the Communist government. Kim Jong had even given a date for his launch, but he never followed through, and thus Saturday’s launch marked a predictable return to the provocations regularly staged by Pyongyang.

It is reported that of the three missiles launched from the Gangwon province, one blew up immediately and the other two traveled approximately 250km in the north-eastern direction.

ACLU Mobilizing to Remove Confederate Monuments

 (FreshAsFrankie) Charlottesville was a watershed moment for race relations in the United States of America. Since the chain of tragic events that took place on August 12, there has been a 214% increase in the removal of Confederate monuments around the nation. But the 29 that have been uprooted and the 35 currently planned for removal mark the tip of the iceberg, considering there remain over 700 Confederate monuments on public land. In this decisive moment in history, the American Civil Liberties Union has pledged to put their resources and will into cutting down on that number substantially.

ACLU Mobilizing to Remove Confederate Monuments

“When we do not deal with the ugly truth about our history, we have no chance of going forward in any kind of a productive way,” ACLU Director Jeffrey Robinson said during a live broadcast on Thursday night, August 24. “Getting rid of the Confederate monuments will … make us deal with the truth.”\

ACLU has been taking action on the ground to bring their plan to fruition by dispensing their 200,000 People Power activists to press forward with petition drives and digital campaigns to garner the public’s support. But ACLU isn’t the only organization doing the work to confront the issue, and in fact, some have criticized the organization for making moves only after it became a hot button issue. Prior to Charlottesville ACLU had, perhaps regrettably, defended the fundamental right to free speech by white supremacists. They face dissension for taking such a direction in spite of their long history of advocacy for progressive causes. Over the period in which they disengaged from the fight, Color of Change and Change.org picked up the slack, garnering more than half a million signatures for the removal of Confederate monuments.

For a time ACLU’s position triggered a debate among the organizations, with the Color of Change managing director Arisha Hatch responding to ACLU’s, proclaimed support of “free speech” by stating that she sees the perspective coming from fringe organizations on the far right as “hate speech” and not “free speech.” Color of Change has since agreed to disagree on the topic and express that they are glad ACLU has amended its position post-Charlottesville. “Obviously, we have a different theory of change than the ACLU,” Hatch said. ”But their support sends a message that they’re in support of black civil rights leaders who are making these calls. They’ve been an incredibly important partner.
