SMDH….Tenth “Knockout Game” Attack in NYC on 76-year-old Woman

SMH…this is ridiculous. A 76-year-old Brooklyn woman was punched in the back of the head for no apparent reason this morning in what seems to be the city’s tenth “knockout game” victim. The “knockout game”, for those that don’t know, is a new trend that originated in New Jersey but has now spread to New York where groups of teenagers roam the streets looking for an innocent victim to knockout with one punch. If this cowardly practice continues, we’re going to have to form our own group of men to start knocking out these teens who think they’re tough knocking out innocent old women and men!

Fitness-Obsessed Mom Banned from Facebook for Telling Overweight Women to Lose Weight

A fitness-obsessed mother of three was banned from Facebook after venting on a post against plus-size women who recently posed in lingerie for a campaign to promote body confidence. The California woman, Maria Kang, wrote that she was “annoyed” by “news stories about how overweight, nearly obese women should be proud of their bodies,” according to California TV station News10.
