This news is shocking and super dissapointing. "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett has been charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false report claiming two men attacked him last month, a Chicago Police Department spokesman tweeted Wednesday night. Anthony Guglielmi said charges were approved by the Cook County State's Attorney Office and "Detectives will make contact with his legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest." Filing a false police report is disorderly conduct, according to Illinois code. A class 4 felony is punishable by one to three years, the code says. Why fake an attack and put your reputation at risk? I don't understand this at all. Do leave your comments.

repost via @instarepost20 from @hair.just.growing #WCW @naturallyisis Isis Brantley, a natural hair braider, about her big court win against the state of Texas, after being arrested in 1997 for braiding hair without a proper license. Isis is part of a longtime battle that hair braiders and other natural hair practitioners have been fighting as states moved to force them to undergo classes and other mandates that did not directly apply to them in order to become licensed. โ€œIt was unconstitutional and illegal for them to arrest me. They arrested me because I didnโ€™t have a cosmetology license. Iโ€™m not a barber or a hair stylist, Iโ€™m an ancestral braider, itโ€™s a gift that was passed down to me,โ€ Brantley said. Not only was Brantley denied the ability to braid hair, a right which she was ultimately grandfathered into in 2007, but she was still restricted from teaching hair braiding. Most cosmetology schools donโ€™t teach natural hair braiding, twisting or locking as cosmetology licenses are applicable to those who use heat and chemicals. Brantleyโ€™s quest to teach hair braiding was also under fire and that led her back to court in 2011. She was not allowed to teach hair braiding without a license. โ€œWhen I went to jail, we found a lot of African braiders that are just opening up shops didnโ€™t have licenses,โ€ Brantley says. โ€œIt just depends on the state, for sure.โ€ In Texas, Brantley would have had to expand her salon, including having a fully-equipped barber college with sinks and barber chairs. The judge in her case challenged the state to find an existing natural hair school in Texas with the same equipment. They could not. The judge ruled that as a small-business owner, Brantley could not be forced to expand for those reasons. โ€œThis is ancient, this is old, this is older than me,โ€ Brantley said of her hair braiding expertise. #melaninfitspiration #kinkyhair #amazingnaturalhair #talkblackdigital #blackjoy #blackgurlmagic #melaninrich #wakandaforever #melanated #essencemag #blackgirlskillingit #blackgirlsrock #blackbloggersunited #videooftheday #blacktravel #blacklove #melaninmonday #blackboyjoy #issarae # #unapolegeticallyblack #blackqueen

This loop has been a source of inspiration to me. I have learned alot from it. Truth is , things will never go well, if you have zero support. You cannot always do things on your own to succeed. You need a strong team of support to excel. GET YOURSELF A STRONG TEAM. LOOPS ARE NOT TO BENEFIT THE ADMINS. IT IS TO BENEFIT EVERYONE INVOLVED. IF EVERYONE INVOLVED SHOWS NO INTEREST, THEN IT BECOMES USELESS. This applies to real life issues too. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #motherhood #blackandeducated #careermom #f4f #blackprofessionals #followloop #blackbloggers #womensupportingwomen #blackgirlbloggers #blackbloggersunited #blackmomskillingit #blackmomsloop #blackbusiness #blackmom #blackmomsblog #blackmombloggers #blackmomsbelike #blackmodels #blackcanadian #iamblackhistory #blackwoman #blackjoy #blackkidsrock #younggiftedandblack #blackentrepreneurs #melaninbloggers #blackbypopulardemand #becomingmichelleobama #blackwomenrock at Brampton, Ontario

I meet so many people who dream of becoming an entrepreneur, until itโ€™s time to put in the long hours, hustle like there is no tomorrow, miss important events, sacrifice and go without, cry and wonder if itโ€™s worth it and then get back up the next day and do it all over again, knowing there are no real guarantees. Thatโ€™s what separates the dreamers from the doers. So are you still dreaming or have you woke up and started doing?! #blackbusinesswoman #entrepreneur #entrepreneurship #femaleentrepreneur #smallblackbusiness #businesscoaches #blackjoy #womeninbiz #blackhistorymonth

Congrats to @sofiyaballin on her success for @blackhistoryuntold!! Sofiya is a force of nature and is doing amazing work giving back to the black community ensuring we are PROPERLY educated on our history. She is also a beautiful person at heart. I had the pleasure of meeting Sofiya in 2017 where she was a panelist. She extended her help to a stranger (me) and helped me become published for the first time ever, which was the catalyst to everything Iโ€™m doing now. So happy for you girl, keep changing the world โœŠ๐ŸฟโœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿผ #black #blacklivesmatter #blacklives #blackjoy #blackwomen #blackwoman #empoweringwomen #empowerment #inspirational #inspiration #inspirational #blackpower #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #blackpeople #woke #slay #boss #preach #people #giveback #community #love

Peak after thoughts: After 6 weeks of training, I finshed Peak performanc๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ What did I walk away with? Confidence and understanding my own strength. I am able to work through most of mental blocks when I hit the crux. I also walked away with the confidence not worrying about others, and focus on MY climbing. Sometimes I can get wrapped up in how I look to other climbers. . It helped to have a group that was were eager to learn and work hard but, also have fun with it. Laughing through HIIT workouts made it extra tough. . It helped to have a diverse group of coaches who came in great perspective, willing to listen to any and all questions. Plus they were all eager to see us grow and be successful.๐Ÿ˜Š . One of my highlights: The last day, I finished a project that I have been working on the big lead wall. Being able to breath, figure out my sequence, and having my technique polished up bit, helped ease everything. #10.bbabyheads . 2019 goals for climbing, keep climbing with some stellar peeps.
