MEXICAN-AMERICAN Singer/Actress CHIQUIS RIVERA covers the April 2015 issue of LATINA!!!
“You hear people talking about it. It just opens up the vision of decision-makers. Finally there’s so many African-American experiences that can be seen and viewed by everybody. It’s nice to be there, really, at the epicenter of it all.”TERRENCE HOWARD adds;
“I thought it would take a couple years [to be a hit] and maybe get a little peak and then come back down. I didn’t know it would jump off from there. But now that such a huge audience has joined in to the dance and are following, I feel so responsible to keep them there.”-CCG
"The NBA family has lost one of its patriarchs. Earl Lloyd, the first African-American to play in an NBA game, was as inspirational as he was understated. He was known as a modest gentleman who played the game with skill, class, and pride. His legacy survives in the league he helped integrate, and the entire NBA family will strive to always honor his memory. Our deepest condolences to the Lloyd family."
"The State family mourns the loss of a fellow Yellow Jacket and trailblazer who was a true champion both on and off of the basketball court. When Earl stepped out on the court on that fateful date in 1950, this remarkable man rightfully earned his place in the historic civil rights movement and, more important, he opened the door to equality in America."

"I want to buy the Timberwolves. Put a group together and perhaps some day try to buy the team. That's what I want."
"I just want to take a moment to address a comment that I made yesterday that got a lot of attention. It's important for me to let you know that I deeply regret my insensitive comment. And I truly did not know the meaning of the word and would never intentionally use such hurtful language. I sincerely apologize for using that language and promise to learn from this, and I hope you will give me that chance."-CCG
“HIP HOP has done more damage to BLACK and BROWN people than RACISM in the last 10 years.”FOX NEWS CHANNEL (FNC) Political Analyst JUAN WILLIAMS is behind Geraldo Rivera 100 percent over his comments that hip-hop has done more damage to minorities in the past decade than has racism.
“In hop hop culture, you can demean and play to the worst racial stereotypes of black people and say you’re celebrating black culture.”
"I disagree with Geraldo. I love Geraldo, but I totally disagree. Coming from a HIP HOP family - my cousin is DAMON DASH and he started ROC-A-FELLA RECORDS with JAY-Z. I know that this is a way for men to legitimize their lives. It sells, it makes money, and it's capitalist."
