Detroit Man Defends Hanging Nooses And Confederate Flags At His Home
A suburban Detroit business owner and his wife who hung Confederate flags and nooses on their property insist that anyone who sees the actions as racist is “stupid.”
“I am not a racist,” Robert Tomanovich, owner of Robert’s Discount Tree Service in Livonia, Mich., told the Daily News Monday night.
“I know black guys, I have black friends. We’re all laughing at this stupidity. Do you know how many white guys were hung back in the day? This isn’t racist. But all of a sudden it’s out of control.”
Tomanovich , 55,made local headlines when WXYZ reported last Friday that Confederate flags and a noose were hanging outside two of his properties, one of which he uses for his tree-cutting business. The noose hung from a tree small enough for a child to scale.
The decorations have…

Well, Actually: Whitney Houston’s Family Confirms Whether Or Not Bobbi Kristina’s Really Out Of A Coma
Is she or isn’t she?
Whitney Houston’s Family Responds To Bobby Brown’s Bobbi Kristina Comments
Remember when we showed you that video of Bobby Brown proudly declaring that his daughter Bobbi Krissy was out of a coma???
Well the late Whitney Houston’s family says otherwise…
Bobby and Tina Brown are absolutely wrong … Bobbi Kristina is not off life support and remains unresponsive … this according to the Houston family.
Sources connected with the Houstons tell TMZ, they have no idea where Bobby Brown is getting his information that Bobbi Kristina was awake, nor do they know why Tina said she’s awake and no longer on life support.
We’re told the Houstons are clear … “She’s in the exact same condition she was in when she went into the facility.” They say there is “minimal” reaction … an occasional eye blink, but that’s it.
The Houstons say Bobbi Kristina is still on a…

“Empire” Creator Will Be Recognized For His Work To Challenge Homophobia In The Black Community
The Rev. Al Sharpton will give Lee Daniels an award for his work to show the anti-gay bias that exists in the African-American community.
Daniels will receive a humanitarian award at the National Action Network’s “Keepers of the Dream” dinner and ceremony April 9 as part of the organization’s annual convention.
Rev. Sharpton told BOSSIP that Daniels was the natural choice for the honor.
“We have to confront the biases in our community that stop us from collectively fighting discrimination,” the Rev. Sharpton told BOSSIP. “What Lee Daniels did by raising the issue, in Empire, with the whole conflict of Lucius and his son…he is making us confront our own biases.”
“He has stood up, raised this issue, and also said that ‘I’m gay,’” the Rev. Sharpton added.
The Rev. Sharpton has made homophobia in…

NYPD Cop Embarrasses Uber Driver Is Stripped Of Gun And Badge
The NYPD detective who was caught on video chewing out an Uber driver has been stripped of his shield and gun, and will be placed on modified duty, police officials said.
Detective Patrick Cherry has been removed from the department’s elite Joint Terrorism Task Force and will be doing desk duty until he is officially transferred out of the prestigious division.
“No good cop should watch that video without a wince,” Commissioner Bill Bratton said at a Wednesday press conference. “Because all good cops know that officer just made their jobs a little bit harder.”
“In that kind of encounter, anger like that is unacceptable,” Bratton continued. “In any encounter, discourtesy and obscene language like that is unacceptable.
“That officer’s behavior reflected poorly on everyone who wears our uniform.”
The incident was being investigated by the Internal Affairs Bureau…
