he former New York Knicks star is the target of an NYPD investigation after a woman came forward and accused him of rape.
The woman claims Kristaps Porzingis invited her to his Manhattan penthouse in early February (reportedly just hours after he tore his ACL in a game at the Garden against the Bucks) and held her down and raped her.
The alleged victim told authorities that Porzingis pinned her down on a bed in his guest room, penetrated her and then got violent. The woman also told cops he hit her in the face several times, spit on her, called her “my bitch” and “my slave” and said he owned her.
The woman, who’s in her 20’s, reported the rape to police Thursday.
The accuser reportedly told cops Porzingis promised to give her $68,000 in hush money to pay for her brother’s college tuition, but then reneged … which is why she waited to report the alleged sexual assault.
Porzingis was traded by the Knicks to the Dallas Mavericks in February. Mavs owner Mark Cuban says the team has been instructed by federal authorities not to comment on the rape allegation.
The still-not-sorry editor and publisher of an Alabama county newspaper has resigned and turned over control of his publication to a black woman following outrage over his editorial calling for the “Ku Klux Klan to night ride again.”
Goodloe Sutton told the Montgomery Advertiser on Friday that the Democrat-Reporter now has a new “publisher, owner and editor.” He refused to explain whether he had sold the publication in Linden, in western Alabama, or simply turned over control, calling the reporter “dumb” for asking, according to the Advertiser.
A news release from the Democrat-Reporter announced that local woman Elecia Dexter became publisher and editor on Thursday. Dexter is African-American and has worked at the newspaper for several years, according to the Plainsman. Dexter told The Associated Press that, although she will run the 3,000-circulation newspaper, Sutton will continue to own it.
The statement said Dexter would continue the newspaper’s 140-year-old tradition of providing “quality news” as well as “moving the paper into a new direction.”
Sutton, 80, wrote in his editorial last week that it was time for “the Ku Klux Klan to night ride again” as he complained about Washington “Democrats in the Republican Party and Democrats plotting to raise taxes in Alabama.” The white supremacist Klan carried out murderous lynchings and other attacks on black people and their supporters during their night rides.
He later told the Advertiser, “If we could get the Klan to go up there and clean out D.C., we’d all been better off.” Asked to explain what he meant, he responded: “We’ll get the hemp ropes out and loop them over a tall limb and hang all of them.”
He also insisted the Klan “didn’t kill but a few people” and “wasn’t violent until they needed to be.”
The community had complained for years about the racist perspective of the editorial page, the Advertiser reported.
The statement from the Democrat-Reporter said that the “Sutton family devoted this newspaper to integrity and excellence in journalism which has been led over the past 50-plus years by Goodloe Sutton and his [late] wife, Jean.”
It added that “Ms. Dexter is coming in at a pivotal time for the newspaper and you may have full confidence in her ability to handle these challenging times.”
Here’s the Democrat-Reporter’s full statement on Sutton stepping down:
The Democrat-Reporter is pleased to announce effective February 21, 2019, Elecia R. Dexter will be the Publisher and Editor of the newspaper going forward. The Democrat-Reporter has provided the community of West Alabama with quality news for over 140 years and you may have full confidence that Ms. Dexter will continue in this tradition as well as moving the paper into a new direction. We are pleased to make this announcement as her family has strong roots and a rich history in Marengo County where her dad, John Dexter Jr. was born.
She graduated from Eastern Illinois University with her Bachelors in Speech Communication. She continued her academic pursuit by getting her Masters in Human Services from Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies and her Masters in Counseling from Argosy University. Over the past 10 years, she has been a strategic leader with expertise in human resources, operations and change management.
The Sutton family devoted this newspaper to integrity and excellence in Journalism which has been led over the past 50 plus years by Goodloe Sutton and his wife Jean.
Ms. Dexter is coming in at a pivotal time for the newspaper and you may have full confidence in her ability to handle these challenging times.
The destruction of the Confederate statues across america can and is met with alot of controversy around this country. I do believe that Racism need to be abolished and every symbol of racism need not to show its face anywhere in a free nation. You can’t call America a free nation if you continue to subjugate the minority population of that nation, You can’t call your nation free when the law tilts in the favor of one group of people over the other group of people. You can’t call your nation a free nation if you have Confederate statue blanketed in every city and town that you visit.
These confederates represent the enslavement and killing and the down right brain washing of another nation. Countless hangings of innocent people that did nothing to the southern man but be born. The unbelievable profit that the southern white’s generated from free laber that these so called black people provided while the people that profited just sat on the porch of the homes andf was paid unheard of amount of money for basically doing nothing. The countless death and rapes of the black woman and new reports that came out lately that the black man was also sexually accosted as well. I can go on and on why these statues need to be taken down.It was a dark area of the united states that hopefully most black and white American’s wish to forget. That is why most if not all of these statues are being taking down.But there are people out there will see this is some kind of ploy to destroy white nationalism.
In my opinion these statues and monuments should not have been put up in the first place. These monuments should have never seen the light of day because these southern soldiers and general lost the civil war. Its like the North and the South both got messages that they won the war when it was the North that won the war. You have more confederate statues up around the United States then you have Union Soldiers that are in the United State.
Statues are only given to the victor of the the war not the loser. But still these statues are every where in every city and county and most of us just walk right past them and don’t realize who or what a certain statue that they are looking at represents. I was in Atlanta and i was in a park and being absorbent that i am i walk up to one of these statue and sure enough there it was a confederate soldier just standing there with the expression of pride in its face. Then i read the message and i walked away.
Sure ever person every nation deserves a culture even the people of the old south. But the old south was bloody and evil to it’s core. What i would say for these statues is that even these men who lived in the south at that time was fighting for something they knew all there lives and could not be blamed for fighting for something like keeping there slaves and keeping there culture because it was all there knew since birth. The normal man should no the difference between right and wrong But that is a little difficult if your parents talked bad about black people . Your friend talked bad about black people , Basically your whole world talked bad about black people that did not know how to read and write because they was not allowed to and at that time if you was around most slaves at that time they probably did not smell so good. I am not giving these southern people a pass on common sense by no means!!!!
What they should do with these statues are to create a confederate museum . I do not believe in destroying no form of history at all even this evil history of our great nation. If you destroy these monuments you will in time repeat history. In fact !! I would not be surprise if that was not the plan in the first place. If you destroy these statues it’s like giving permision to repeat the people in history mistake of enslaving black people.
To destroy history is a mistake and that history are in books for a reason not for us to make the same mistake twice . That is the purpose of recording history. But if you destroy history history will repeat it’s self.

VERY VERY IMPORTANT! Per “Black History Month” that is observed every Feb. of the year, for the 2019 Special Edition, USA Today decided to entitle their theme: “EXODUS: How Black Migrations Changed Our Nation” — Along with the cover also saying: “400 Years Ago: The African Arrival In America; Black Education Opportunities; Soul Food: USA’S 1st Fusion Cuisine” Now is it a surprise or a coincidence how the U.S. also mentions the 400 years in regards to Congress passing the H.R. 1242 bill signed into law as of Jan. 8th, 2018: “400 Years of African-American History Commission Act.” According to the bill, it establishes a commission that seeks to “develop and carry out activities throughout the United States to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of Africans in the English colonies at Point Comfort, Virginia, in 1619.” But Who REALLY Arrived In 1619? Noting the prophecies spoken of in Brashyth/Genesis 15:13-14, Ma’ashah/Acts 7:6-7, and other prophetic books and verses (More Linked Below) — Exactly What Time Is It?! Because it’s also interesting how the USA Today also released a report for “Black History Month” on Botswana, “South Africa,” and the Kalahari Desert — intertwining them with “racial harmony.” Coupling this with the “EXODUS” reference, and knowing where the REAL Jerusalem Is (More Linked Below), what exactly are they trying to tell us?! When we also note other prophetic events such as the record U.S. government shutdown, locusts recorded in Saudi Arabia, polar vortex, near-record cold affecting much of the Midwest, apocalyptic activity occurring throughout much of the world, SIGNS noting the 400 years all throughout America (in places such as Kentucky and Hattiesburg, Mississippi), and even the 3 supermoons in a row that will take place as of Jan. Feb. and Mar. 2019 — What TIME Is It REALLY? Not to mention how one of these supermoons “coincidentally” occurred on Jan. 21st, 2019 — which was observed as “Martin Luther King Jr. Day,” and then the third and final one that will begin and commence the 400th Year. We have also noted other Prophetic SIGNS in the sky, such as: 1. Total Solar Eclipse — Occurred On Mon. Aug. 21st, 2017 2. Revelation 12 Sign — Fulfilled On Sat. Sept. 23rd, 2017 3. Full Moon On The 1st Of Abib — Occurring On Wed. Mar. 20th, 2019 With references to slavery, Exodus, 400 Years, and U.S. — Again, the question still remains: What TIME Is It REALLY? THE TRUTH REVEALED!!! PROPHETIC TIMES ARE HERE!!! EGYPT AKA AMERICA IS ABOUT TO MOURN!! AMERICA IS ABOUT TO BE JUDGED! BUT THE QUESTION IS, ARE YOU READY?! PLEASE SEEK YAHUAH AND HIS TRUE SON YAHUSHA — BECAUSE TIME’S ALMOST UP!!!!!

Lubbock, TX — My Little Playhouse, a daycare center in Texas, is under fire after one of its workers was caught on video pulling a young black girl’s hair trying to make her eat her food. Police and state officials are now investigating the situation.
The video shows the daycare worker pulling on the girl’s braided hair, seemingly forcing her to follow her instructions and eat in a cafeteria while other children are around.
The officials of the daycare, My Little Playhouse, confirmed that the worker shown on the video and the worker who took the video has been terminated already.
They have issued a statement saying, “The owners and Directors of My Little Playhouse Learning Center LLC were made aware of video footage posted on social media at approximately 11:45 a.m. Staff involved were fired immediately. Local authorities (LPD) has been notified and are investigating accordingly. Texas Department of Childcare Licensing has also been notified.”
Paul Zimmerman, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, said that the agency will also conduct an investigation regarding the incident for apparent abuse or neglect. The Department of Health and Human Resources, which handles licenses for child care providers, will decide depending on the results of the investigation.
Meanwhile, Shanna Walker, the grandmother of the girl on the video was shocked and furious when she watched the video 20 minutes before she came to the daycare to pick up her granddaughter. She thought that the daycare workers are “supposed to be people that are taking care of [the kids] that has their well being at heart,” she told WLBT.
“I know that everyone thinks that their grandchildren are the best,” she added. “But this little girl, she is the sweetest little girl that you could ever know. And she’s very quiet and very timid. So, for her to sit there and just to pull on her hair — it’s very infuriating. I mean I’m standing here right now, feeling like I’m about to boil over.”
