Anaconda, Birthday, and Comfortable: Atlanta Woman Celebrates Her Birthday With An Orgy Party "I Really Care About Sexual Freedom" @balleralert Atlanta Woman Celebrates Her Birthday With An Orgy Party “I Really Care About Sexual Freedom” -blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An Atlanta woman is celebrating her birthday with an orgy party to help young black women be sexually liberated. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cidney Green went viral last year with her orgy parties using the hashtag ATLOrgy. Well, it looks like she’s at again. Many are probably curious about what the party entails, who attends, and if it is free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Green’s website, the orgy party is called an ‘Erotic Sleepover.’ The site states, “Erotic SleepOver is an all-inclusive sexual retreat on the world's most luxurious properties. We specialize in catering to your inner bourgeois freak with top of the line cuisine and total sexual liberation. All Erotic Sleepovers include full course gourmet meals, more than enough liquid courage, adult novelties, unique adult entertainment, thousands of condoms and highly trained security guards. Our guards do not only ensure these legendary events go on without a hitch but they also make certain that no phones or electronic devices enter the premises. This gives you 100% freedom to live out every single sexual desire you've ever possessed...without worrying about ending up on SnapChat or PornHub.com. Our extremely thorough cleaning experts ensure things remain...spotless throughout your entire stay. Speaking of your stay, we will always provide a safe, comfortable orgasmic place to cum in...” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This will be Green’s second party and because it was a sold out event, she has increased her price to $500. According to BET, attendees will be given a secret location where a porn star will join them for a four course meal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Green states that she cares about “sexual freedom, especially black women because they are not able to be sexually free without being shamed.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts on ATLORGY?

Africa, Community, and Empire: Ryan Coogler and Michael B Jordan Looking to Bring The Story of Mansa Musa to Life @balleralert Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan Looking to Bring The Story of Mansa Musa to Life-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ With the success of their first three projects: “Fruitvale Station,” “Creed” and “Black Panther”, super Director Ryan Coogler and Hollywood Star Michael B. Jordan are already teaming up for more projects. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to multiple reports, the duo is now looking to start a project centered around the life of Mansa Musa. Both Coogler and Jordan feel it is important to create influential films that reflect the Black community and the contributions that have been made throughout history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “You got to tell stories in today, or in the future,” says Jordan. “Or can we go back even further? There’s always one period that people want to go back to, but can we go back to Hannibal? Or Mansa Musa, destroying economies as he traveled? Can we go back to the Egyptians?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Mansa Musa was an influential African ruler in the fourteenth century. He was emperor of the Mali Empire, a land filled with gold, which he casually handed out during his religious expedition to Mecca, ultimately causing economic crises to cities that were unfamiliar with such wealth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In 1324, Musa became the first Muslim ruler to trek almost four-thousand-miles. During his travels, he encountered rulers of the Middle East and Europe, which helped to put Mali on European maps. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ He helped improve Islamic education and he also brought back government bureaucrats and architects. With the development of mosques and a major university, the city of Timbuktu became more urbanized. Musa ruled for 25 years and during that time, Western Africa was said to be at peace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While there is no word on when this project will take off, the duo is already in pre-production for another film titled “Wrong Answer,” about a 2006 standardized testing scandal in Atlanta. The sequel to “Creed” is also on the way.

A Dream, America, and Beautiful: Memphis Black Santa Brings Joy To Across The South People @balleralert Memphis Black Santa Brings Joy To People Across The South - Blogged by @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Raymond Conley, 65, has been the resident black Santa for the past eight years at Southland Mall and people have been traveling to Memphis to see him. "Not to be funny, but they want to see a black Santa. They come from Texas, St. Louis, Atlanta. They want their kids to see a black Santa," Conley said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ About 63% of the Memphis’ population is black, according to the U.S. Census and it’s pretty cool to see a Santa that is relatable to the population. The general manager Michael Rixter, of the Southland Mall, agrees, "we have at least 10 calls a day from people asking if we have Santa here.The second question they ask is, 'Is he black?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There has been black Santa’s across America since the 1940’s. The Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn got its first black Santa in 2016 for four days, which expanded to nine days this year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Believe it or not, before Conley donned on the Santa suit, Rev. Larry Lee Love Sr., 66 was the first black Santa in 1997, "Me and my wife were mall walkers. And they were putting up decorations, and advertising Santa, and we kept passing that big, beautiful red-and-white Santa chair with that white Santa, and every time we passed it, seemed like something would come over me." Love said. Back then, Love just worked for the mall, but these days everything is a business including being Santa. Conley works for Cherry Hill Photo Enterprises Inc which puts together the whole Santa experience. The company makes profits off of photo packages and sends Conley two spanking new suits every week. Conley is the only black Santa on their roster, local manager for Cherry Hill, Lyntia Howard, says,” We have a lot of people who come looking for him.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Conley and Love hope to continue being Santa for a very long time and Love has a dream on top of bringing joy to kids,"My only aspiration right now is to be the first black Santa to go to Washington, D.C., and light that 50-foot tall Alberta spruce tree( the National Tree by the White House)" he said.

Conley works for Cherry Hill Photo Enterprises Inc which puts together the whole Santa experience. The company makes profits off of photo packages and sends Conley two spanking new suits every week. Conley is the only black Santa on their roster, local manager for Cherry Hill, Lyntia Howard, says,” We have a lot of people who come looking for him.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Conley and Love hope to continue being Santa for a very long time and Love has a dream on top of bringing joy to kids,"My only aspiration right now is to be the first black Santa to go to Washington, D.C., and light that 50-foot tall Alberta spruce tree( the National Tree by the White House)" he said.

America, Basketball, and Bbb: LaVar Ball to Launch Big Baller Brand Basketball League For Top Ranked Players Who Skip College @balleralert G BAL BRA Read More: www.balleralert.conm LaVar Ball to Launch Big Baller Brand Basketball League For Top Ranked Players Who Skip College – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ LaVarBall is back at it again with his Big Baller ideas and new rules for success. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The father everyone loves to hate and hates to love has just launched a new league for high school students to follow their dreams. According to Slam Online, the Junior Basketball Association will pay top prospects a couple of thousand dollars a month and will serve as an alternative to the one and done athletes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We have officially launched our own pro basketball league called the “Junior Basketball Association,” sponsored by Big Baller Brand,” Ball said in a statement to the publication. “The JBA is the very first junior pro basketball league of its kind. The JBA will cater to the top-ranked high school basketball prospects in America. All nationally ranked high school seniors, whose main goal are to reach the NBA, will be offered an opportunity to join the JBA, turning pro straight out of high school and bypassing the usual college pit stop.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With a monthly stipend between $3,000 to $10,000, as well as the proper tools and assistance needed to prepare for the NBA draft, the new league will be a new way for players to pursue the pros. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Bleacher Report, Ball is looking to secure at least 80 players for 10 teams, with games held in LA, Dallas, Brooklyn, and Atlanta. He spoke with ESPN’s Darren Rovell about his decision and expressed his confidence in league’s participation, saying, “Getting these players is going to be easy. This is giving guys a chance to get a jump start on their career, to be seen by pro scouts, and we’re going to pay them because someone has to pay these kids.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The new league will follow the rules of the NBA with professional court features, but there is a catch. All players will be required to rock BBB merch for the league. ......to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)
