LeBron James’ Hair Causes Chaos

LeBron James has dealt with his struggling hair almost from the moment he got into the NBA in 2003. He’s tried everything to change the fact that his hair is disappearing before our eyes but nothing works. This past week has been particularly ugly as his hair seems like it’s falling off and falling apart as his games progress.

Last week he got caught on video trying to fix his hair mid-game with teammate Anthony Davis trying to get him to fix the disaster. It’s only gotten worse as they’ve played more games. We don’t get it. LeBron really can just let it all go. Just go bald. No one will judge. Come on to glory, Bron Bron.

In the meantime, enjoy the comedy.

Rest In Peace: John Conyers, Longest Serving Black Man In Congressional History, Passes Away At 90

House Judiciary Committee Holds Hearing On U.S. Refugee Admissions Program

Rep. John Conyers Passes Away At Age 90

Congress lost another titan of the house this weekend.

Yesterday, according to Detroit News, John Conyers passed away in Detroit at the age of 90. Conyers was Korean War veteran and served 53 years in the U.S. House of Representatives where he was an iconic champion for civil rights and racial equality as a founding member of the Congressional Black caucus.

While he was lauded by many of his colleagues, a sexual harassment scandal led to Conyers’ resignation in 2017. The congressman denied all claims against him and said that he hoped his record would be take precedent over allegations.

Mr. Conyers was the third-longest-serving House member in U.S. history and the first African American to hold the title of dean, or member with the longest continuous service — a mantle he took on in 2015 after the retirement of Michigan’s John Dingell Jr.

“He’s touched so many lives across the country around the world when you talk about human rights and civil rights,” said Jonathan Kinloch, Democratic Party chairman of the 13th Congressional District, who was in middle school when he first started following Mr. Conyers’ career.

“He was a giant then, he’s a giant now, and he will remain a giant into history.”

Another colleague, U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Detroit, had this to say:

“John Conyers fought with vigor and empathy for people who were left out and left behind,” Levin said Sunday on Twitter. “My deepest sympathy to the Conyers family who are so much a part of the fabric of Detroit.”

Conyers was also a noted proponent of reparations and was VERY consistent about the need for African-Americans to be repaid for our centuries labor.

“I’m not giving up,” he said in 2017. “Slavery is a blemish on this nation’s history, and until it is formally addressed, our country’s story will remain marked by this blight.”

Rest in peace, sir.
