Don Cornelius: You Will Be Missed




Today we have lost and icon and pioneer. Don Cornelius died today from a self inflicted gun shot wound to the head. He was 75 years old. I can’t believe that Don Cornelius is dead. The fact that he left us so tragically makes the loss even worse. I hate knowing that his suffering, whether mental, physical or both, was so great that he felt the need to take his own life; that he didn’t see another way out. It is all so sad.

Don has contributed so much to entertainment, and not only black culture, but pop culture. He opened the door for black artists by giving them a place where they could belong and share their gifts with the world, and he created where young African-Americans could come dance and have a great time. He made being black Continue reading

Gilani Taylor Update



Gilani Taylor passed away about 5 hours ago at about 6:00 PM or 6:30 PM Pacific Time October 21, 2011 Friday. She is now with Jesus and her baby girl Jayla. Please pray for her husband Rodney and her surviving daughter Amiya, also known as Mimi, who was not in the car that fateful and tragic day, as well as their son Milan. Please don’t ever forget Gilani. Continue to pray that the person that has killed Gilani and Jayla will be caught, so that he or she can pay the price for what they’ve done and go to jail.

The person was driving a white, 2000’s model SUV on the 101 Freeway under the Las Virgenes Overpass October 1, 2011 Saturday at around 8:32 AM. If you know ANYTHING please report it to the CHP at 818-240-8200. Thank you! God bless you!


Quick update! Gilani’s condition is very bad. The doctors have said that there isn’t much more that they can do. It is completely in God’s hands. Gilani’s Pastor posted on his Twitter page this message today Friday October 21, 2011 at 3:00 PM “Doctors have now put Sister Lani’s life in God’s Hands. I’m SO glad that she did the same thing 2 and a half yrs ago! PRAY! MIRACLE TIME” So please continue to pray with all you’ve got! Keep lifting Gilani in prayer. Thank you and God bless you!

It’s been over two weeks and Gilani Taylor is still alive! Fighting for her life? Yes. Still Critical? Yes, and she will for some time. But she is still alive. The doctors didn’t think she’d live for two days. Yet, she’s still here. God is so good! But Gilani is still not out of the woods. Her condition has worsened so your prayers are still needed. Gilani went into Cardiopulmonary arrest also known as cardiac arrest on October 17, 2011. Her Pastor held an all night Shut In prayer service to pray for her last night October 18, 2011. Anyone could come and pray. So the situation is even more serious. I do not know if she is still in a medically induced coma. But if so, then she is still unaware of the death of Jayla. Please continue to hold her up. I don’t know what her condition is right now. Getting updates is difficult. But as soon as I know of any changes, either good or bad, I will let you know.
