The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People turns 100 today, and its leaders are confronting provocative questions: How relevant is the NAACP in the age of Barack Obama? Now that an African American occupies the nation's highest office, is there still a crying need for an organization founded in 1909 after a half-dozen black men were lynched in Springfield, Ill., their homes burned to the ground? Read the rest HERE.

February 10, 2009. A friend of Chris Brown reached out to MediaTakeOut.com, offering us this explanation of what happened on Saturday night:
[Rihanna is] outrageously jealous and insecure. So [Chris] would get into arguments and fights with her. He never hit her once but she'd [allegedly] smack him, bite him and scratch him and once he even got hit in the balls kinda' hard. So [she] got into the habit of hitting him because to her it was fine since he never hit her back.
[On Saturday night, Chris] finally told her to shut the f*ck up and it's over. So she socked the shit out of him while he was driving and kept on hitting him until he crashed into a parked car.
[Chris] then got out of the car and tried to pull her out and got hit in the face some more numerous times. Scratched up and everything.
Simply because he was done with all of the drama. Anyway when she smacked him this last time he smacked her back. So he [left Rihanna there alone].
Hurt from banging her face on the windshield/dashboard from the car accident [somebody] then called the cops and [Rihanna] told them that [Chris] whipped her ass.
[Later the next day, Chris] wanted to go get his things from her apt to go to a hotel and saw a million cop cars there.
So he left and when he sent us to retrieve his stuff, this girl didn't want to let us get his 6 bags of stuff. She said tell him to come get it himself … Tell him to answer his phone and that I'm sorry we can work this out. To which I said, hell no my friend isn't coming anywhere near here. It's too late for all of that. He just wants his luggage and you guys need never to see each other anymore….
Sh*t happens was definitely in effect and it's crazy how everyone can jump on a woman's side and not know what happened. Hind sight is 20/20 and I told [him that] he should've gotten out of the car and called the cops on her a*s when it was just him with scratches and shit.
This seems like a very interesting story. Of course we have absolutely no way to know whether it’s true or just damage control.
It does get a little tricky however. You’ll recall that initially both Rihanna and Chris’ people were claiming that Rihanna was injured in a “traffic accident.” Also, according to TMZ, their Lamborghini was towed from the scene of the alleged assault in Hancock Park to a nearby police impound lot. Could the car have been damaged???

I didn't want to do that. Hence why this is a late post. Look, I love football. Football completes me. With that being said, I have got to give it up for the Steelers. They play the game the way it is supposed to be played. Hard nosed, tough, strong, great defense, ambition, desire... all the things that ANYONE would want in a team. Big Ben is an amazing quarterback. What else can you ask for out of a guy who can lead his team down the field when it's needed the most. He did it! Big B did it. He did it with a perfect throw to top off a perfect Superbowl drive.
Where the hell is my perfect drive! Eh, who am I kidding... I can't do it! I hate them! My hate for the Steelers runs as deep as an oceanic crack in the earth's crust exposing the mantle. It's just not right! Six! Do you know how cool that would be to run around talking crap about how my team has won not one, not four, but six freakin NFL Superbowl Freakin Superbowl Championships? I could say cool things like, "Oh, we are about to open up a six pack of whoop ass on that ass!," or "Somebody slap Frodo cause we are the real Lord of The Rings out this beotch!" I would be cool saying those things. Really, REALLY cool! I would feel like a new millennium football pimp ready to take on the World! No, not me though. My loyalty for my team has been rewarded with yet another regime taking over. My celebrations have been halted even in my move to the wonderful place where I live now, PHILLY. I went from watching John Elway lead the Broncos down the field for the go ahead Superbowl touchdown to watching Kurt Warner do the exact freakin same thing this year in AZ plus 2!
How can you hate a coach who coaches this hard? What more could you ask for if you had Mike Tomlin as your head coach? Why is our luck so bad as Browns fans? What the hell did we do to deserve this?!
Wow this turned out exactly the way I thought it would. Time did nothing.
