Crime, Memes, and New York: Woman Becomes Ph.D Candidate at N.Y.U After Serving 20 Years in Prison for Murder @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.comm Woman Becomes Ph.D Candidate at N.Y.U After Serving 20 Years in Prison for Murder - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1996, MichelleJones was charged with murder and neglect of her four-year-old son. While incarcerated in an Indiana prison for more than two decades, the NY Times reports that Jones became a published scholar of American history and used the prison library to further her education. During her sentence, Jones, alongside a group of inmates, produced the best research project for the Indiana Historical Society, in addition to writing several dance compositions and plays, one of which is set to open at an Indianapolis theater in December. She also got certified as a paralegal and received a bachelor’s degree in 2004. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After spending 20 of an initial 50-year sentence behind bars, Jones was released. The very next day, Jones took her talents to New York University (NYU) to join the school’s doctoral program, only after her application was accepted and later denied by Harvard University’s history program, which was her first choice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although, Jones was among 18 applicants out of over 300 for the program, her application was overturned after some professors raised concerns about her application. While other professors supported Jones, calling her “one of the strongest candidates in the country last year, period,” Jones was ultimately denied for minimizing her crime “to the point of misrepresentation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, Jones got pregnant as a result of non-consensual sex with a high school senior, at the age of 14.

Beautiful, Books, and Donald Glover: Black Excellence: Donald Glover and Lena Waithe Make History at 2017 Emmy Awards @balleralert Black Excellence: Donald Glover and Lena Waithe Make History at 2017 Emmy Awards - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Sunday, black excellence took over the 2017 Emmy Awards after DonaldGlover and LenaWaithe made history, becoming the first black winners in their categories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Glover, who has been a fan-favorite in all aspects of his very diverse career, took home his very first Emmy award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for his FX dramedy “Atlanta.” The win etched Glover’s name in the Emmy record books, as he became the first-ever black director to win in that category. He also snapped the four-year streak of female directors, who previously dominated the category. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Man! First I want to thank the great algorithm that put us all here,” Glover said, during his acceptance speech. “I want to thank my parents, who are in the audience. This is nuts! …I just love everybody out here for letting me be up here, so thank you. Thank you all.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, Waithe became the first-ever black woman to win the Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for her work on the “Thanksgiving” episode from season 2 of “Master of None.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I see each and every one of you,” she said, during her speech. “The things that make us different, those are our superpowers. Every day when you walk out the door, put on your imaginary cape and go out there and conquer the world because the world would not be as beautiful as it is if we weren’t in it.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Congratulations to Glover and Waithe on their historical night!

America, Belgium, and God: DO NOT JUDGE AND YOU WILL NOT BE JUDGED Religious people are more tolerant, open-minded than atheists. A new study has upended long-held assumptions that religious people are more closed-minded and intolerant than atheists. The study, conducted by Dr. Filip Uzarevic, a researcher at the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium, revealed that while atheists might consider themselves open-minded than religious folk, they are actually less tolerant of differing opinions. I’m sure none of the religious people are surprised with the results of this study. Just take a look at what’s going on here, in America. Every single day we see numerous examples of another liberal being offended by something even slightly similar to Christianity. They protest against public prayers, crosses in the universities and schools, and against historical monuments of our great country. What’s more, these protests usually have nothing in common with peaceful demonstrations. Take the last incident with the Christian monument destroyed by an insane liberal in Arkansas as an example. These people have nothing holy in their souls, and they cannot be compared to the people of faith.
