Family, Instagram, and Ironic: Selena Quintanilla Will Receive Posthumous Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame @balleralert Selena Quintanilla Will Receive Posthumous Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ENews reports that Mexican-American icon SelenaQuintanilla will be receiving a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Nov. 3. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Suzette Quintanilla, the late singer's sister, announced the news via social media. That same day, Selena will also receive another exciting honor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, actress, producer and Texas native EvaLongoria will be there to proclaim November 3rd as the official 'Selena Day' in the city of Los Angeles," wrote Suzette. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Suzette and the rest of the Quintanilla family will be present for the 6:30 PM ceremony. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Last year, Longoria took to Instagram to announce that she too would be receiving a star the same year as her idol. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In a heartfelt post Longoria wrote, "I could never have dreamed that one day I would receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But even more ironic is that the same year I receive my star, so does my idol, my inspiration, my fellow Tejana, my fellow Corpus Christi native, Selena Quintanilla. She was the reason I even dared to dream that a better life was possible. And that that life didn't have to distance you from where you came from," she said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "So many people become famous and leave a place without ever crediting it with the role it played in shaping their lives. Selena was proud of being from Corpus Christi, Texas. And that made me proud to be from Corpus." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ She continued, "She blazed the way for all of us and I will be forever grateful to her for not only that but for the pure joy I felt when I got to see her perform. Her smile, her charisma, her beauty put every single person who watched her under a spell. Thank you, Selena. I know I will receive my star on the Walk of Fame because you dared to dream it first."

Bad, Bill Cosby, and Donald Trump: Wagatwe Sara Wanjuki 3 hrs I won't say "Me, too." Partially because most of you know that' already. But mostly because we shouldn't have to "out" ourselves as survivors Because men have *always* seen the gendered violence happening around them (and/or being perpetrated by them)-they just haven't done anything about it. Because it shouldn't matter how many women, femmes, and gender neutral & non- conforming folk speak their truths. Post by @wagatwe. This is not to say that MeToo is a bad thing at all; just that, once again, the burden falls on the oppressed group (people who have been assaulted-harassed) to appeal to the moral sense of their oppressors. Also, to clarify, the emphasis on men in this post is not meant to imply that men cannot be raped or assaulted. Here’s a longer quote I really liked about all this: “Before Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct, it was Donald Trump’s. Before Trump, there was Bill Cosby and his half-century of woman accusers. Woody Allen, though determinedly sticking around in Hollywood, has been publicly accused by his own daughter of sexual abuse on a number of occasions. There are just no excuses anymore. We all know that sexual misconduct is a widespread epidemic in our world. So, why are we still asking women and other survivors to rip open their traumas to prove to us there is a problem we already know exists? And when will the problem finally be laid at the feet of those responsible to solve, instead of burdening survivors who have already endured so much?” It is not our responsibility to rip open our wounds and expose our trauma in a solidarity ritual just so you can finally acknowledge there is a problem with men’s violence toward women. We have been screaming into a void for centuries; I’m fairly certain one more round of begging isn’t going to convince you the problem exists if you haven’t already accepted it. For those people who have already used the MeToo hashtag to create some solidarity around their expeirences, or to heal some of their unacknowledged trauma: it is absolutely your right to do that. But just once I would like to see us NOT asking for women, or other oppressed people, to solve a problem that disproportionately affects us. We have already been through enough — we cannot solve your sickness of sexual violence too.” - Matilda Dixon-Smith @matildadixonsmith, “Will We Ever Stop Asking Women And Survivors To Fix Rape Culture?”

Aaron Rodgers, Ass, and Basketball: School nurses be like "Put ice on it @codeinist I truly believe school nurses just watch one first aid video and they are hired. My high school ain't even had a school nurse that's how useless they have become. It was 8th grade and it rained outside so we had to play recess indoors at the gym. No one bought a basketball but my bro Antonio had a football on him that day. I don't play football because Im a clitoris. I can not take a hit. But when my mom use to give me beatings I would catch the belt like I was oBJ. My hands were unmatched. We was some reckless young niggas. No pads or protection we playing tackle foot ball on hard wooden floor. It's 4th down and my team still stuck on the free throw line in our In zone. My boy Craig threw me a AARON Rodgers hail marry for us to win the game. Instead it turned to a interception in our in zone. My whole camera relatively shifted 180 degrees. I seen Antonio shocked he even caught the ball. I came in hot like the middle in Mario to tackle Antonio. Nigga pressed square on his psp and just spin moved my ass. I turned my head to see where he gone too, I ran into the wall. Whole hand felt funny. I look down and see my Wrist bone sticking out like mega mans sword. I heard to school aid look and say “He needed some milk”. My whole forearm childish for pulling a Kevin Ware. You know how you look at some fucked yo shit and it don’t process until you go into a painful shock? Bruh I booked it to the nurse office holding my hand like a fainted Pokémon from battle. I met Nurse Jameka busting down a $5 pop eyes box. I’m in there crying she says “oh baby no trouble that ain’t nothing this ice pack cant do”. BITCH! My grandma pulled up a hour later to pick me up. Grandma put vix on my throat and told me get some rest. Since then I ain’t touch a football. My jumpshot all fucked up. I can’t finger bitches with my right hand it be cramping up.

Cars, Life, and Memes: Man Shot in Las Vegas After Saving 30 People From Attack @balleralert Man Shot in Las Vegas After Saving 30 People From Attack-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Though the horrific incident in LasVegas has taken the news by storm, one man is now being acknowledged for his heroism. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 30-year-old JonathanSmith, a copy machine repairman, dedicated his life that night to ushering more than 30 people to safe hiding places behind cars during the moments of the attack. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In doing so, Smith suffered his own injuries after being shot in the neck. “I couldn’t feel anything in my neck. There was a warm sensation in my arm,” he told the Washington Post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Luckily though, Smith was able to walk out of the hospital, despite his fractured collarbone, a cracked rib and a bruised lung. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ As far as the bullet that could have almost taken his life, Smith says the bullet remains in place as doctors fear that removing it could cause more damage. “I might have to live with this bullet for the rest of my life,” Smith said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When it comes to how he feels about his new heroic status Smith said, "I would want someone to do the same for me. No one deserves to lose a life coming to a country music festival.”
