Just days after Memphitz created a media firestorm with questions surrounding his marriage to wife Toya Wright, she too has responded to their relationship status.  The music producer made several posts on Instagram about trouble in his 3-year union to the former reality star, which he?s since deleted. Memphitz (born Mickey Wright) uploaded a photo which appears to be of an engagement ring and wedding band (Toya?s?) at the bottom of a glass with the caption:

NO!!!!! Chris Rock And His Wife File For Divorce After 19 Years!!!!!!

Originally posted on 97.9 The Box:


I just watched Chris Rock’s new movie “Top Five” on Friday and I feel like it was pretty obvious that it was loosely based on his life. Rock plays a successful comedian who starts making wack movies (after giving up drugs) and eventually fails at his love life too! Now, the movie is starting look a lot more real, because Rock’s wife just released a statement to PEOPLE magazine:

“After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways.”

Chris Rock is one of my top 3 comedians ever. It’s sad when almost any couple calls it quits so I’m wishing both of them the best. I love ya’ll. -Diamond

How Feminism Killed Chivalry

Originally posted on Black Millennials:

Yesterday, I stood cramped on a rush hour A train headed home. The sweltering heat was only exacerbated by an army of over-worked NYC dwellers and a non-functioning AC. In the middle of the crowded train stood a mother and her young son. The wailing child was uncomfortable, and the mother tried unsuccessfully to calm him.

As if by fate, there was a row of three men sitting in front of her. Not one offered their seat.

This is a situation I’ve seen time and time again. A struggling mother who could use a moment of relaxation, only to be met with rudeness. I’ve seen pregnant women standing, while men pretend she is invisible. Women who navigate between screaming children and bags of groceries, only to be ignored.

That’s the thing about trains… you’ll learn a lot about cultural mores and social norms if you dare to pay attention.

Black male depression often gets overlooked

Originally posted on Atlanta Daily World:


The issue of depression among young Black men is a rarely discussed topic of conversation.

At a symposium held at the University of Chicago School of Social Service in February, Dr. Waldo Johnson Jr. said, “Black boys are more depressed because they believe their physical safety is always being threatened. Their families are economically poorer than Whites and many Black families live below the poverty line.”

Johnson is an associate professor and leading voice in the field of social work.

Although some, in more conservative circles may believe that young Black males are merely lashing out due to their own self-imposed victimization, Dr. Cornel West, in his essay titled “Nihilism in Black America,” said this is not the case. Nihilism, by definition is a philosophical belief based in extreme skepticism, maintaining that nothing in the world has a real existence.

According to West, as it pertains to the Black community…

Your Man’s Cheating Produced a Child – Can You Work It Out?


this is certainly a horse pill to swallow.

Originally posted on 93.1 WZAK:

women cheat as much as men1. Staying for the Right Reasons

The first, most important decision to make after discovering an affair is if you will attempt a reconciliation or not. But once you’ve decided to stay, ask yourself…honestly…why you want to. Many women who stay with men who’ve cheated on them do so in order to pay him back or get even. While this is not the best way to heal yourself, this is an even more unhealthy way of recovering from a post-affair relationship when a new child is involved. Staying with your boyfriend or your spouse means that there are months…maybe even years…ahead of you of repairing your relationship, and that child isn’t going anywhere. Are you capable of working on your relationship while he…and ultimately you…try to get to know and spend time with a new baby? Can you get past the fact that there will now be another woman in…
