Trayvon Martin: mrsFAB’s Verdict Reaction

20130714-083929.jpg
Last night, a so-called Florida “jury” let yet another child killer go free with a NOT guilty verdict for George Zimmerman, in the death of unarmed Florida teen, Trayvon Martin. I am shocked, yet not really. This is the America I have come to know. Here is my Facebook post from this morning:

The thoughts going through my mind right now are not good ones. I’m trying to contain my anger. I need to get this out. I feel my blood boiling. I’m going to the gym to work off my frustration, but in the back of my mind I keep wondering if Zimmerman will ever get his. Who is going to “take care of him?”

Not a good thought to have. I’m a kind person, yet the thought is there. I sit here thinking about stories my mom use to tell about how the gang members back in the old days in Chicago were about community… in a sense. When stuff was about to “go down,” they would make sure woman and kids got in the house safely first. They made people that did bad things on their “turf…” Pay.

I wonder what they do in Florida? Are the “bad boys” there going to make Zimmerman pay or just loot the streets and riot. NEITHER are good options. But I’m being honest here in wondering if Zimmerman’s days are numbered. And if so, would that make me, you, or the Martin family feel any better? How would Zimmerman’s family feel then? Let me pray and go to the gym. Have a good Sunday everyone. Hug someone today.

I pray for both families as neither of their lives will be the same again. RIP Trayvon Martin. Rest in peace.

It’s Something About Kerry: Vanity Fair’s Cover Girl

20130706-102142.jpg

My girl Olivia Pope Kerry Washington is on the cover of the August 2013 issue of Vanity Fair! Can you believe that the the last time a black woman has graced the cover of VF was Beyoncé back in 2005? Wow.

I’m so proud of Kerry. And in case you have been hiding under a rock, Kerry got married last June to NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha (NOT a member of America’s Team but I will overlook that), but the news broke only a few days ago. I love how she is low key and PRIVATE.

Congrats to Kerry and the hubby. Please go out and buy the Vanity Fair/Kerry issue. Perhaps a high number of sales will motivate VF to be more diverse in selecting their future cover girls.

Ten FABfacts About Me!

I love Instagram! I’m feeling some sort of way about the new video part, but it’s still one of FABfave iPhone apps.

I reposted this picture on IG from @keshanichols one of the nicer cast members from VH-1’s Basketball Wives. She posted ten facts about herself, as did I. To read my FABfacts, click here. Happy Saturday! 🙂

Happy Birthday America!

As celebrate the birth of our nation and independence from Great Britain with fireworks, parades and BBQ, I wanted to take a moment to remember and thank all of our military men and women who fight for this great nation. Thanks also to the police, fire fighters, 911 dispatchers, and EMTs who protect us everyday.

Here are two of my FABfave smartphone wallpapers for the 4th. The one up top I use for my lock screen. This LV one is for my home screen:

Feel free to use these wallpapers to trick out your smartphone for the holiday! It’s “no refusal weekend” in many areas so please don’t drink and drive (no texting either). Be careful with your fireworks. I do give you permission to have fun and eat PLENTY. Have a happy 4th!! 🙂
