Rapper CyHi The Prynce recently let everyone know in a lengthy post on Instagram that there was an attempt on his life. His Instagram brought forward a lot of attention and a lot of concern about his well-being. It is unknown the magnitude of his injuries, but we are happy to hear that he’s still around.

According to the rapper, his vehicle got shot up, which forced him off the road and flipped his car. In the post, he doesn’t implicate anyone he believed to be involved in the attempt to take his life, but says that Atlanta is not the city of love like other people may think.

The post read: “Today is a day about love, but in my city (the city of Atlanta) there’s no love here anymore. a couple nights ago there was an attempt on my life… somebody tried to gun me down on the highway. I tried everything I could do to lose them, but they were adament about taking me off this earth. They where shooting at me while I was driving and even after my car flipped, hit a pole and crashed into a tree, they came back and shot the car up some more. At this point I don’t know if it was a mistaken identity, a robbery, or associated with something that I did when I was younger but I haven’t been in the streets in over a decade. I just want to know why and if there is anything I can do to fix the issue. I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, and I have tremendous love for my city … but it’s chaotic out here. I’m trying my best to keep a level head, but when you dont know who is after you its hard to wrap your mind around it and not be paranoid. By the grace of god and my lord and savior jesus christ I am still here. I just want to let the people know who were trying to kill me that i am not a bad person. I don’t want revenge, I just want understanding and closure. So everyone that’s in Atlanta right now, please protect yourself, stay out the way and be careful, because it could all be over in a split second. I understand there’s a lot of beef going on in my city between different crews, that is fueled by the music…but it is time that we all have a sit down and have a peace meeting. There are to many lives being lost over music. I know I’m not the king of my city or nothing, but the real leaders (i won’t say no names, but you guys know who you are) you all are extremely blessed to have the the careers that you have and be able to feed your family and loved ones. It’s time to stop the violence in Atlanta. I don’t have all the answers and I definitely don’t have the power to make it stop, but i do feel like somebody gotta step up and say something. So much love to every artist, label, hustler, and crew in my city pleaseee lets resolve our problems man. We don’t have to kill each other man. SMH thanks again, Atlanta. I wrote this letter to y’all with tears in my eyes.”

Honestly, the violence in the black community has got to stop. To many people are losing their lives to senseless killings. Put the guns down!

Missouri, Kansas Legislators Propose Anti-Transgender Bills That Would Make It Illegal For Doctors To Perform Gender-Reassignment Services To People Under 18; LGBTQ Advocates Fight Back

LGBTQ advocates are trying to stop proposed anti-transgender bills from passing in Missouri and Kansas.

Legislators in Missouri and Kansas have proposed bills that would make it illegal for doctors in the states to perform gender-reassignment services, procedures, or surgeries for transgender children under 18, according to KSHB’s Sarah Place. The American Civil Liberties Union and LGBTQ advocates are pushing back against the move.

The bills called Kansas House Bill 2210 and Missouri House Bill 33 would also make it illegal to prescribe puberty blockers and hormone therapy. Currently, gender reassignment procedures are only available to people older than 18, according to NBC 52. The bill would also ban parents from helping or supporting their children who are undergoing medical treatments. If parents do support their children, they can be reported to the state children’s division.

While lawmakers claim they are protecting children, advocates say they are putting children in danger. “Our kids hear that,” Shira Berkowitz with PROMO Missouri says, “and we’re doing everything we can to make sure they’re supported by their parents, by the adults in their lives, and know there is a much larger support system for them than these bills set to attack them.”

Divorce rates have spiked in America during the Covid-19 lockdowns. The divorce rate, normally the highest in the world, is 34 percent higher from March through June compared to 2019, according to the NY Post.

One Texas school teacher hoped a new lesson would help change the relationship dynamics between males and females that lead to higher divorce rates.

Titled “Rules for Chivalry”, the class assignment teaches young students how to be proper ladies and gentlemen.

The rules for girls include “dress in a feminine manner to please men”, “address all men respectfully by title” and “obey any reasonable request by a male”.

Additionally, girls are instructed to “walk behind men”, not to “criticize men” or “complain or whine”.

There were also a set of rules for boys, instructing them to “dress in jackets and ties or suits”, “treat ladies with respect”, “show courtesy and assist women”, assist ladies to seat themselves at a table, and “pay for all expenses during dates”.

These rules are routinely taught to children in other cultures where the divorce rates are significantly lower than in America.

Despite the fact that the rules have proven effective in other cultures, the class was canceled due to the fierce public backlash.

The Shallowater school district released a statement saying the assignment “does not reflect our district and community values. The matter has been addressed with the teacher, and the assignment was removed.”

Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat from California, is suing former President Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., Rudy Giuliani and Rep. Mo Brooks from Alabama, claiming that they all incited the violence that occurred on January 6th during the U.S. Capitol Riot.

According to the New York Post, Swalwell claims Trump and his cronies violated civil rights by attempting to block the political process and the peaceful transfer of presidential power.

The suit was filed in federal court in Washington, D.C. on Friday, and follows Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, who also sued Trump weeks ago, claiming he launched a drawn-out attempt to overturn the election results.

Swalwell’s suit alleges Trump and the other defendants violated local laws in D.C. by inciting the mob to storm the nation’s Capitol while his own Vice President Mike Pence was in the Senate chamber working to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“As a direct and foreseeable consequence of the Defendants’ false and incendiary allegations of fraud and theft, and in direct response to the Defendants’ express calls for violence at the rally, a violent mob attacked the U.S. Capitol,” Swalwell’s suit stated.
