Pastor A.J. Aamir recently told his leadership staff at Resurrecting Faith, DO NOT wear weaves. Pastor Aamir feels women wearing weaves presents a false image of themselves and are associated with women who have low self-esteem.

“Our black women are getting weaves trying to be something and someone they are not. Be real with yourself is all I’m saying” said Pastor Aamir.
Pastor Aamir admits he was raised in a strict household. His mother and father are members of the Islamic faith. At 39 years old, he leads a congregation whose average age is 22.

“Long hair don’t care. What kind of mess is that? I don’t want my members so focused on what’s on their heads and not IN their heads” he told AmericaPreachers.com.

“I lead a church where our members are struggling financially. I mean really struggling. “Yet, a 26 year old mother in my church has a $300 weave on her head. NO. I will not be quiet about this.”

Pastor Aamir acknowledges he cannot legally prohibit women from wearing weaves in church, but he still highly disapproves it.
Resurrecting Faith was founded by Pastor Aamir and is located in Waco, Texas.

Daughter: I lied and sent my dad to prison for rape

A woman who claimed her father sexually assaulted her as a child now is recanting her story and trying to vindicate her imprisoned dad.
By Dan Slepian
Producer, NBC News

Chaneya Kelly is on a mission: she wants the world to know about a horrible lie she says she told almost 16 years ago – a lie that cost a man his freedom.

“I'm 24 years old and I made this mistake when I was nine years old,” Chaneya told NBC News, “but it's never too late to try and right your wrong. “

Chaneya says that in 1997, she falsely accused a man of raping her. That man – who has always maintained his innocence -- is Daryl Kelly, Chaneya’s father.

“All I think is, ‘One day the truth will set me free,’” said Kelly, from Green Haven Correctional Facility in upstate New York. “All I have to do is hold on.”


In October 1997, Daryl Kelly was living with his wife, Charade, and their five children in Newburgh, N.Y., 90 miles north of New York City. Chaneya, their oldest child, was two months shy of her ninth birthday.

At the time, Daryl -- a Navy veteran who owned a local electronics repair shop -- says he was trying to kick a drug habit to take care of his kids. But Charade was at rock bottom, even turning to prostitution to feed her addiction.

Chaneya remembers being downstairs with her father one morning before school when she had to use the bathroom. When she was done, she went upstairs, and that’s when Chaneya says her mother asked her a question that came out of the blue.

“She repeatedly asked me, has my dad touched me,” recalled Chaneya. “I was like, ‘What do you mean, did he touch me?’ And she was like, ‘Did he touch you in your no-no spot?’ And I would repeatedly say no.”

Chaneya says the more she denied any abuse, the more irate her mother became – and even threatened her with a belt. According to Chaneya, her mother said, “If you don’t tell me the answer that I want to hear, I’m going to beat you.” To avoid a beating, says Chaneya, she told her mother that her father molested her even though it wasn't true.
On the morning of October 29, 1997 Newburgh police took Kelly downtown for questioning. They found some of his answers suspicious.


For example, when they asked him why his semen and fingerprints were found on his daughter, Daryl scrambled for an explanation. According to a police report, he said, “My wife is doing drugs and alcohol. Maybe she’s setting me up.’“
He didn’t know until later that no semen or fingerprints had been found.

In fact, there was no definitive forensic evidence that Chaneya had been raped. While a doctor's report did conclude that there was "possible sexual abuse" because of some redness, Chaneya’s hymen was intact even though she claimed her father had penetrated her.

But with both Chaneya and her mom telling police the same story, it was enough for police. Daryl Kelly was charged with multiple counts of rape and sodomy.

Kelly -- who had never before been convicted of a felony -- refused a plea deal that would have made him eligible for parole in six years, and within a year he faced a jury. Based on Chaneya’s graphic testimony, it took them just hours to find her father guilty, and he was sentenced to 20 to 40 years and barred from having any contact with his children.
After her father’s conviction, authorities removed Chaneya from her mother's custody, citing Charade’s drug abuse, and she was sent to live with her grandmother, Pat Thomas, a Pentecostal minister. It was there – six months after her father’s conviction -- that Chaneya told her grandmother that she was never raped, and that the story had been born out of fear of her mother.


Grandmother Pat took Chaneya to Daryl’s appellate attorney, who videotaped her recantation, in which she says she learned words like “penis” and “vagina” from the prosecution team, and the mechanics of sex from pornography stashed under her parents’ bed. On the tape, she looks uncomfortable, mumbling short, hesitant answers like, “No,” and “I think so.”

Her mother, Charade, also submitted an affidavit to the court, swearing she threatened to beat Chaneya unless she said her father raped her.

The prosecutor argued that the recantation looked coerced, and the same judge who oversaw his original trial a year earlier agreed. He refused to vacate Kelly's conviction.

As the years went by, Daryl began studying the law in prison, and began the long slog of filing appeals -- all of which have been denied.

Meanwhile, Chaneya never gave up on her father. When she was 15, she convinced the courts to allow her to once again have contact with him – and that’s when she went to visit him in prison.

“The first thing my dad did was that he hugged me and he told me that he loved me and … that he doesn’t blame me for anything,” Chaneya recalled. “It was priceless to me.”

Today, Chaneya’s mom Charade says she’s been drug-free for many years. In a recent interview with NBC News, Charade confirmed that she threatened her daughter with a beating, and said she can’t remember why she was so determined to make Chaneya say she had been molested. She blames the incident on a drug binge. “I [had been] gone for three days. And I was really deep in the grip of my addiction.” When asked why she would threaten her daughter if she didn’t lie, Charade said, “I have no idea, I really don’t.”

From behind prison walls, Daryl Kelly has written to anyone who will listen to his story. Last year, one of those letters landed on the desk of Thomas Schellhammer, the head of the newly formed Conviction Review Bureau at the N.Y. Attorney General's office. Schellhammer contacted Orange County District Attorney Frank Phillips, the county’s elected chief prosecutor for almost 30 years, who was in charge when Daryl Kelly stood trial.

In an interview with NBC News, Phillips strongly defended the integrity of the original prosecution, saying he trained his prosecutors “that truth is the most important thing,” and stressing that a jury had found Kelly guilty.

“The system says he’s not innocent, that the credibility of Chaneya was tested, that the issues surrounding her testimony back in 1998 were addressed,” said Phillips.
Phillips also said it was “not unique” for the victim of a crime like rape or molestation to want to protect the abuser by withdrawing an accusation. “It’s part of a dynamic that we deal with. Whether it’s sex crimes or crimes of domestic violence, that is not unusual.”
Advertise | AdChoices


After hearing from Schellhammer, Phillips recused himself from reexamining the Kelly case and referred it to a committee of the state association of county district attorneys for review. Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick is currently leading a re-investigation; his office told NBC News it declined comment while the review is underway. Detective Thomas Mancinelli, who led the original police investigation in Newburgh, also declined to comment on the case.

Is it possible that Chaneya is simply repressing a horrible memory, that her father really did rape her, and she feels guilty about putting him behind bars?

She says no, that she’d have no problem with her father remaining in prison if he were guilty. “I wouldn’t be here having this conversation. “

As for Daryl, he says he won’t truly be free until he’s vindicated. “This fight will never end,” he said. “I will continue to fight for this. This is my reputation. This is my decree. This is the truth. It's not just for me. It's for my daughter as well.”

So everybody has recanted their story, yet no judge or prosecutor will admit that they were wrong, thereby keeping this innocent man locked up??????

SOUTH CAROLINA HAS HALF-BROTHERS WITH THE SAME NAME, DAD
Published on: August 23, 2013 | Written by: Clay Travis
23

Southern familial relationships can be tortured.

Sometimes our family trees really do make circles.

But I believe this has to be a first, South Carolina has two redshirt sophomore defensive tackles with the same name.

Meet Gerald Dixon, Jr., who was born on March 30th, 1993.

Then you can meet Gerald Dixon who was born on August 7th, 1993.

Both players are the son of former South Carolina defensive tackle Gerald Dixon, Sr.

I'm not sure that you can beat the younger Gerald Dixon's personal section of his bio if you tried. It's like the opening line to a novel that every single one of you would keep reading: "Gerald Gervoris Ky'Trell Dixon goes by "Lil' G"... was born August 7, 1993... is the younger half-brother of teammate Gerald Dixon Jr... father, Gerald Dixon Sr., played at Carolina from 1990-91"

I can't stop thinking about the athletic department intern typing this bio up who was like, "Okay, is the T after the Ky apostrophe capitalized? Okay, and, I'm sorry, but is it Little G? No. How do you spell that? L-i-l-apostrophe? Okay. And, sorry again, but is that a capital G or a lil' g?"

Meanwhile, born five months apart with different moms but the same name?

And you thought your Thanksgiving was tough.

In Thanksgiving of 1993, Gerald Dixon, Sr. had two sons with two different moms and the same name.

It's probably fair to say these two moms aren't sitting side-by-side at the football games.

As much as you might like to think that I spend every minute of every day scouring SEC rosters for familial anomalies, Outkick was made aware of this amazing feat via reader email:

Thomas M. writes:

[b]"I was recently looking at the South Carolina football roster and noticed that there were two redshirt sophomores named Gerald Dixon. At first I thought some SID intern just forgot to update the roster but I noticed that while they were both from Rock Hill, SC, they went to different high schools. It turns out that they are half brothers. So not only did Gerald Dixon get two women pregnant in the same year, he convinced both to name their kid after him, and then both kids turned out to be stud defensive linemen. Why is this not a national story?! Gerald Dixon Sr. might be a more legendary father than Orlando Shaw!" [/b]

As if that wasn't enough Gerald Dixon, Sr. got both kids to enroll at South Carolina in the same year.

Then they redshirted in the same year.

Now both will see playing time on the defensive line this fall. In fact, Gerald Dixon, Jr. is listed as a co-starter.

As for Gerald Dixon, Sr., he's a PE teacher in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

And there's definitely a "you can blow my whistle, baby," joke to make here, but I'm far too mature to make it.

This is an amazing story, but just wait until Travis Henry's kids all become eligible to play college football. Tennessee is going to have an entire recruiting class made up just of Travis Henry's kids, who will all play different positions, and that class will probably be ranked number one in the nation.

But in the meantime, Outkick has found our favorite two defensive players in the SEC.

Post ALL HAIL PASTAFARI!! Reply with quote

[quote]After months of research and countless calls to state and local authorities, Eddie Castillo finally got approval to wear a pasta strainer on his head in his driver's license photo.

It sounds like a joke, but it's actually a political statement from a group of atheists who "worship" the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The group members, who call themselves "pastafarians," were inspired by a satirical letter written in 2005 to protest the Kansas School Board teaching intelligent design.

Castillo, a Texas Tech student, is the first person in the country allowed to wear [u]this kind of religious headgear [/u]in a legal identification photo.

A New Jersey man who tried it in February 2013 was denied. An Austrian man was allowed to wear the pasta strainer in an official photo in 2008, but was required to undergo a medical interview to check his "mental fitness to drive."

"You might think this is some sort of a gag or prank by a college student, but thousands, including myself, see it as a political and religious milestone for all atheists everywhere," Castillo said.

Castillo's church is using humor to bring attention to some very serious issues, namely, how different levels of government interpret the separation of church and state.

Castillo says he's trying to make a point about acceptance and expose people to a different outlook. Rolling Eyes

Wild Wing Cafe Kicks Out 25 African Americans After White Customer Felt 'Threatened': Report
Posted: 08/25/2013 4:10 pm EDT | Updated: 08/26/2013 2:14 pm EDT


Right as the country commemorates the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, people are flocking to social media to condemn a South Carolina restaurant for its allegedly racist actions.

According to CBS affiliate WCSC-TV, Michael Brown and 24 of his family and friends were at Wild Wing Cafe celebrating his cousin's final day in Charleston, S.C., last month when the group was suddenly told to leave.

The reason? The shift manager allegedly told Brown that a white customer felt "threatened" by his party. When one of Brown's companions started filming the exchange, the shift manager is said to have told the group to leave.

"[That] totally alarmed all of us because we're sitting there peaceably for two hours," Brown told the news outlet.

Brown said that his group had waited "patiently" for two hours to get a seat at the restaurant. He took to Facebook earlier this month to express his frustration with the North Charleston establishment:


WCSC-TV reports that a representative at the chain reached out to Brown to apologize and offer a free meal for the group.

"We had a conversation," Debra Stokes, Wild Wing Cafe's chief marketing officer, told WCSC-TV. "It was a really good conversation... they just didn't receive the experience that they have come to know and love."

Thousands of people have since shared Brown's Facebook post, and others have bombarded Wild Wing Cafe's Facebook page with calls for a boycott:

George Zimmerman wants state of Florida to pay for defense expenses
By M. Alex Johnson, Staff Writer, NBC News

George Zimmerman will ask the state of Florida to reimburse him for as much as $300,000 in expenses he racked up successfully defending himself in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, NBC News has learned.

Zimmerman and his legal team believe they are entitled to the refund because Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder July 13 for having shot and killed Martin, 17.

The shooting in February 2012 sparked a national discussion over racial profiling after Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, said he acted in self-defense.


The motion, to be filed by Zimmerman's lead attorney, Mark O'Mara, would seek refunds for the hundreds of thousands of dollars the defense spent on fees for expert witnesses and court reporters for depositions, travel and other similar expenses.



The request is expected to be between $200,000 and $300,000, according to Shawn Vincent, a spokesman for Zimmerman's legal team.

Attorney fees for the defense team, including O'Mara, wouldn't be part of the motion.

The state Judicial Administrative Commission, which would be responsible for paying out the money if the request is approved, didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Monday night.

Zimmerman's request was first reported by The Orlando Sentinel, which quoted O'Mara as saying he would soon file the motion with state Circuit Judge Debra Nelson.

The Sentinel reported that Zimmerman's request would be based on a Florida law that says a defendant who's acquitted isn't liable for costs associated with his or her case. It must be approved by a judge or a clerk.

O'Mara told the newspaper he expects the Judicial Administrative Commission to throw up roadblocks.
"That's where the fight is," said O'Mara, who told the paper he's been paid nothing by Zimmerman but has kept billing records.

They clearly don't have any Black interns or Black employees period below the age of 45...otherwise that "story" would have never seen the light of day. Then again, they could just have some spiteful Black interns/employees below the age of 45 who just wanted to see their employer get clowned all over the world today.
