About Me

I was practically born a member of the Democratic Party. I began registering people to vote while still in elementary school, often after Sunday school. I'm excited about the future of our party because good, in the end, always wins!

The wife of famed music executive Clarence Avant was killed at the couple's Beverly Hills home in an apparent home invasion robbery, NBC 4 reports.

Jacqueline Avant suffered a gunshot wound during the apparent robbery, and no suspects have been arrested as of yet. She was transported to a hospital where she died.

"He began as a talent manager in the 1950s, worked at Venture Records in Southern California and founded L.A.-based Sussex Records and Avant Garde Broadcasting."

Jacqueline Avant was a former model in the Ebony Fashion Fair and served as president of the Neighbors of Watts, a support group that focused on child care. She was also a member of the board of directors of UCLA's International Student Center.

A live television interview with two Mississippi lawmakers was tainted by a man who insisted on flying the state’s flag with a Confederate emblem in the background.

Just hours after Mississippi’s legislature voted to allow the Confederate battle emblem to be removed from the state flag, MSNBC spoke to state House Minority Leader Robert Johnson III.

As Johnson spoke, a man behind him positioned the Mississippi flag so that the Confederate battle emblem could be seen above the Black lawmaker’s head.

“The flag is just a beginning,” Johnson said, motioning to Mississippi’s Republican Speaker of the House Philip Gunn, who was also in the live shot.
