Officials at a Northern California private school are apologizing after a lunch menu option to celebrate Black History Month angered some parents and students.

Students at Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord wanted to come up with ways to observe the occasion during a lunchtime celebration Friday. But when the school announced a menu of fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon, other students and parents became offended.

KNTV-TV reports ( http://bit.ly/1bu28DH ) that school officials held an assembly Wednesday to discuss the issue and also sent a letter apologizing to parents. Principal Nancy Libby wrote that the items were taken off of the menu and that the school doesn’t perpetrate racial stereotypes.

Libby also wrote the school will hold a diversity assembly.

Calls to the school on Thursday were not immediately returned.

Michigan Police Hit, Strap Down Potential Rape Victim, Slice Off Her Weave [VIDEO]

Charda Gregory

In a brutal and infuriating abuse of power, Warren, Michigan police officer Bernadette Najor, with the assistance of several male officers, hit and tied down a potential rape victim before cutting off her hair weave, reports Addicting Info.

Charda Gregory, 22, woke up disoriented in a seedy motel room, where she was arrested by police for trashing the room. The young mother, who is justifiably traumatized after the incident, has no idea how she got there or why police brutalized her.

7 Action News Investigator Heather Catallo has more:

Gregory says on November 13, she went to a party in Detroit, where she believes someone drugged her.

Paul Misukewicz is her lawyer:

“She had a couple of drinks, then woke up in a strange place.  Didn’t know how she got there, completely disoriented, said Paul Misukewicz, Gregory’s lawyer.

That strange place was the Suez Motel on 8 Mile in…

I hope this is a publicity stunt. I think they make a good couple. Sounds like the Will and Jada rumor mill.

T.I. and Tiny Get Married! (thumbnail)

I almost didn’t believe it when I saw it, But after checking 3 different sources I’ve come to the conclusion that it is indeed true that America’s Favorite modern day hip-hop Brady Bunch is splitting up. Yup, Clifford T.I. Harris and Tameka Tiny Cottle are calling it quits on their relationship. It’s been reported that the couple made the decision to take a break from their marriage just before arriving in LA for the Grammy’s last week.

T.I. and Tiny (it’s going to be so hard to stop calling their names together like this) committed to filming their Family Hustle reality show that airs on VH1 for two years, so I am wondering where will this separation leave the reality show? Whatever happens I hope the both of them and the kids are okay.

According to http://http://bossip.com/908670/deuces-mrs-carter-ditches-another-manager-to-give-herself-and-hubby-hov-full-control-of-her-career/

Word on the curb is that she’s let go of yet another business manager so that she and hubby Hov can have complete control of her career.  According to Mail Online reports: Beyonce has reportedly parted ways from her manager so that she can run her own affairs with the help of husband Jay-Z. The 32-year-old singer is believed to have ditched her general manager, Live Nation Executive Faisal Durrani, the Daily Mirror reports.  Durrani, 32, is one of several managers that Beyonce has dismissed over the years so that she can run her career with Jay-Z, 44. In 2011, the Texan singer sacked her father, Matthew Knowles, who managed the star for 21 years since she was in Destiny’s Child in 1990.  She became the president of Parkwood Entertainment, the entertainment and management company that she set up in 2008. But now Beyonce has also…

Wow! We told you guys yesterdaythat George Zimmerman thinking it was a better idea to fight the rapper DMX than it was to fight rapper The Game was a big mistake! BIG MISTAKE…huge!

Welp, now DMX is confirming our thoughts by telling TMZ that he’ll be jailed if promoters allow him to step in a boxing ring with George Zimmerman … because he’d break every boxing rule in the book and then piss on his face!

Doh!

D-M-X confirmed to TMZ that he’s officially throwing his name in the ring to be an opponent for this celebrity boxing match that Zimmerman has elected to take part in.  And as in the case of rapper The Game (who made his desire to fight Zimmerman known yesterday) he has an ulterior motive for wanting to do it.

DMX says he wants to do it for,

“Every black person who has been done wrong…

On what’s next:

I’m going on tour with Robin Thicke. We leave out on February 21st and I’m very excited. You know I didn’t think he knew me. So for someone that I really adore musically to pick me to open for him, I’m very excited about that.
