Tyler Perry

Thanks to Tyler Perry, it’s indeed a small world after all for the minority kids who were tossed out of a suburban Philadelphia pool on claims of racism.

The filmmaker is footing the bill for 65 African American and Hispanic children from the Creative Steps day camp in Philly to a day at Walt Disney World, according to reports.

The kids reportedly cheered Monday when they learned about the actor’s gift. reative Steps director Alethea Wright says she’s thrilled about the offer, especially because Perry “comes from humble beginnings” like the children in her camp. The Valley Club in Huntingdon Valley has maintained that refunding the camp’s swimming fee was not about race but rather a safety issue, in part because many children couldn’t swim. Perry, best known for his signature character Madea, is currently directing the film “Why Did I Get Married, Too?” at his Atlanta studios.


President Obama

President Obama

Thanks to President Barack Obama, America’s still “got talent” tonight at 9 p.m.

In order to get NBC to broadcast his Wednesday night press conference, the White House agreed to move its previously announced 9 p.m. start time to 8 p.m., allowing the Peacock to air its heavily-promoted Susan Boyle edition of “Talent” in its regular 9 p.m. timeslot tonight.

With NBC on board, three of the four major broadcast networks will carry President Obama’s primetime news conference about health care reform.

FOX was the only network to decline the White House request outright. It was not about to disturb tonight’s two-hour live broadcast of “So You Think You Can Dance,” and will instead direct viewers to Fox News for the presser. This is the second time FOX has ruled against covering an Obama press conference, a move the network has made in the past when the event’s purpose seemed less than urgent.


Henry Louis Gates Jr.

Charges have been dropped against prominent Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. after Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the city’s police department recommended that the matter not be pursued, reports CNN. Incidentialy, President Barack Obama came to Gate’s defense during his prime-time news conference Wednesday. He says the ploice acted stupidly and added that as far as we’ve come in race-relations, America still has a long way to go.
In a joint statement, Cambridge and the police department said they made the recommendation to the Middlesex County district attorney and the district attorney’s office “has agreed to enter a nolle prosequi in this matter,” meaning that it will not be pursued.

Gates was arrested last week on a charge of disorderly conduct after a confrontation with an officer at his home, according to a Cambridge police report.

Charles Ogletree, a professor at Harvard Law School who is Gates’ lawyer in this case, told CNN on Tuesday that Gates — the director of Harvard’s W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research — had returned from China on Thursday to his Cambridge home and discovered his front door jammed.
He opened his back door with his key and tried unsuccessfully from inside his home to open the front door. Eventually, Gates and his driver forced the door open from the outside, Ogletree said.

The professor was inside for several minutes when a police officer, Sgt. James Crowley, appeared at his steps and asked him to step outside, the lawyer said. According to his lawyer, Gates told the officer he lived there and showed him his Massachusetts driver’s license and Harvard University identification card. The officer followed him into his house and said he had received a report of a possible break-in, the lawyer said. Gates grew frustrated that the officer was continuing to question him in his home and asked for the officer’s name and badge number, Ogletree said.

The police report offers a different account of the incident. Gates refused to step outside to speak with the officer, the police report said, and when Crowley told Gates that he was investigating a possible break-in, Gates opened the front door and exclaimed, “Why, because I’m a black man in America?” the report said.


Happier Days

Happier Days

Tabloids and gossips rags have painted Kesha Nichols as a jilted bride whose NBA star boyfriend left her at the altar days before the ceremony. But the founder of Sugar&SpiceNYC dance group and former New Jersey Nets dancer resents being depicted as a weak girl who was ditched at the altar; she sees herself as a strong woman who is dealing with a temporary setback.

NBA star Richard Jefferson’s former fiance talks about their breakup.”That’s my philosophy, just keep dancing for life,” Nichols told “Good Morning America” today. “Just keep picking up the pieces and keep going.”

Nichols, who dated popular San Antonio Spurs forward Richard Jefferson for five years, said the entire ordeal had been humiliating, but she that she held no ill will toward her former partner. She denied reports that she’d been dumped in an e-mail but said there was an e-mail that simply “confirmed what we already talked about.”

“I have no hard feelings. I will always care about him. … My heart is broken. I’ll miss him as a friend,” she said.
