CALIFORNIA -- Lolo Jones needs an education in manners
Ms. Jones is a student of the new internet world. Ms Jones should know to take the time to do research before making anything public.
Ms. Jones did not do so and now she is paying the consequences.
This is just another form of Black on Black crime, another form of telling Black Disabled americans they don't count.
My fellow Black Disabled writer, poet, Hip Hop artist or as he describes it, Crip Hop artist Leroy Moore Jr. from Berkeley, California makes it clear.

a serpent in alligator loafers, shark skin suit and claiming Ivy

organized labor, undermining worker-ant solidarity, that’s what’s
really going on right under our noses. Class warfare waged by the world class wealthy against us workers bees.

Stringer trains women to lead in more than sports
by Joy Buchanan and Luke Visconti
NEWARK -- Rutgers University head women's basketball coach C. Vivian Stringer wanted to be a cheerleader in high school to get close to the boys.
She was only the second Black cheerleader in the history of her Pennsylvania high school; she had to sue to get on the squad. No women were closer to the male players than the cheerleaders.
