A father turned in his daughter to authorities after reading her diary and learned of her plot to carry out a Columbine type school shooting. Would you ever turn your kid over to the police or handle it yourself? #DLQ


Shana Bobbitt Would I turn my kid in? Hell yeah! This is a clear disregard for human life and I had have to assume that includes mine! If you were smart enough to create a bomb I'm sure you could figure out a way to kill me in my sleep. I'm Snitchin because you got to come up out of my house!
Rhonda Hall Yes, not only am I saving others. I'm also saving my child's life. Whatever I as a parent have done so far wasn't enough to make them feel safe or secure'
Joycelyn Cannon Yes I would! They need to know there are consequences to their behavior. Not only am I saving their life but the lives of other children that could have been harmed. My child needs to know what I do is out of love. While I don't necessarily want jail time I do want them to receive psychiatric help in an institution
Deborah Carter I heard this on my ride home. As a mom, and a mom that would get six digits for her 1 & only child..Yes- Those children that could be harmed/if not killed are parents....and the hurt they would endure...Yes- it would hurt me to turn in my child....but it's the right thing to do....So, if I just talk to my child about why and etc? Okay- now they know they are busted, but what if in a few days/weeks/months they are successful in another attempt...that is something I would not want on my mind for ever....Sorry, I'm turning mine in
George Sims If we're referring to a scenario wherein there is "imminent" danger to innocent people, and I am not able to prevent it on my own, then YES I would reach out to the professionals to stop my child... Barring that, I would disarm my child myself and decide afterward what needs to be done and who needs to be involved... Remember, this was a white man with a white daughter (presumed from the content of the news story)...for minorities we have to STOP and really consider our choices with more care, to ensure we don't unwittingly substitute one potential tragedy for another....meaning, causing the unnecessary death of our child because of an overzealous law enforcement response...
Larry Reynolds Scott Something went wrong when your child can bring a shotgun, ammunition, pipes and caps, shrapnel, fireworks, magnesium tape and fuse material into your home. This girl needs help. And you can best believe she was not black.
Kasual Kev Never! After i'm done with them they would be the ones calling the cops to get me off their ass! In the words of Bernie Mac (RIP) parents have become to much like punks. We have to start raising our kids and stop letting others do it for us.
Okiemute Notoma-Lott I would like to commend the parent in this situation for 1) recognizing that his child has a problem and needs help and 2) he can't give her the help she needs. It takes strength to acknowledge that you cannot help your child, and even more strength to turn your child into the authorities.
Norma Belton No. I would have gotten her in a treatment facilty right away. If I couldn't afford it then I would have called the authorities.
Shana Sellers Wow. Good man! Hell yeah! I find out you finna do some shit like that, my child or not, I'm turning your disgraceful ass in without a second thought! 😡
David B. Fillmore Yes, I would have done the same! If you don't, there's a possibility of countless lives that could be taken and that would be on your conscience and you could have prevented it'
Ronda Allen she was too far gone for him to handle it himself. he did the right thing but he should have been there for her while she was growing up.
Keith Larkin Ya'll stoopid if you think that after finding out you raised a terrorist that you whoopin they ass is gon stop they shit. Smh
Sharif Irons It's a reason why she's getting ready to smoke their ass and the system ain't gonna help her. All of y'all who said u would turn in ur own child. Y'all are bitch made
Jacobi Walker Hell yes! If something happened and I am found to have had prior knowledge...
Dee Dennis The daughter is now being held for a mental evaluation! First step for a slap on the wrist!!
Alison Prescott Hell yeh ...u not gonna embarrass me and make me feel guilty for lost lives
Nikki Stevenson Sanders Hard decision but the right decision.. think of how many lives he may have saved
Cherice Sanders Absolutely I'm turning my kid in....you gotta get yo creepy ass out of my house....I wouldn't be able to sleep....
Chi La It would be hard,but yes i would turn them in.
Howard C. Lewis That's a no-brainer. Of course I'd turn my kid in.
Lynette Jackson I absolutely would!! No need to get that demon mad with me...I might just come up missing!!
Rashard Grand He did right she obviously is a killer,anyway could you play Mariah Carey new single "I don't ".
Derrick Robbins Oh yeah. For that level of death and destruction. Gotta make that call
Kevin Richardson Always remember to do the right thing. Biggest ups to those parents.

Instead of using a euphemism such as the “N-word,” NBC’s family sitcom “The Carmichael Show” will air the unedited, full racial slur several times on an episode this summer, Do you think the unedited N-word should be allowed on network television? #DLQ

LaVerne Mack I don't condone the use of the word; and I try to refrain from it myself; but just because we decide not to use it doesn't mean it won't be used EVER, ask any hard core racist or Trump supporter. We will be the only ones Not using it soon. I LOVE the Carmichael Show and Trust it's being used to make a point and not to just say it repeatedly like a Tarantino movie.
Diamond Hill No racial slurs should be used on television period. People really need to stop watching so much TV anyway. In the average home, the TV is the first thing that goes on in the morning, if it hasn't been on all night, and the last thing to go off before bed. We have allowed TV shows and characters become too big of a part of our everyday lives. We sit up and watch someone elses make believe life and many try to model their own lives by what they see on TV by letting it tell them how to dress, how to talk, how to date, and how to respond in certain situations. Many of us are letting make believe TV characters raise their kids. No more sitting at the table together for dinner. Everybody gets their dinner plate and takes a spot in front of the TV instead. How about we turn off the TV and read a book or write our own damn stories. Let's try sitting in silence and meditating to gather our thoughts sometimes and stop using TV as a way to run away from ourselves smh
Florence Hazel Pyatt Now that we are moving away from using the word because its just not necessary this is a way to bring it back and make it front and center ... Slave auctions in nj school and n word on mainstream tv way to go America..
Tierra J. Brown The "n-word" should not be allowed to be used anywhere at all. And if it's displayed on TV, that's an easy way to introduce it to the little ones.
Erika Williams Blacks folks stay divided; even on the use of the word nigga. Seems like a no brainer to me. I don't think the word will go away because it's embedded in our culture.
Dennis Bryson Black folk should want to delete the word period....why they want to hang on to something so derogatory. You cant fix that word. It is what it is! For lack of better terminology.
Roland Muskelly I heard the word in Sanford & Son, The Jeffersons, All In The Family & Good Times. Hearing it on a show like his wouldn't offend me at all. We as a community has to man up. We're hearing Bitch & Shit on other shows in mainstream Tv . We've heard that word in music for decades. We definitely don't say amongst ourselves "There goes that "N word" over there" !!
Roy Pyatt I don't get to say. I had a co-worker who wanted people to stop saying the n-word and to actually say the word, when reporting. Her thinking was saying "Bob called the young man the n-word" took the ugliness out of the word. She thought it should be as shocking to the people hearing second hand as to the people on the spot
Anthony Johnson If "WE" as a group of Black people would announce on radio and TV that we are going to use that segment of the show as a study tool to EDUCATE our children on the word nigger and how white people treated blacks, that episode would be pull. We can complain about a lot and nothing will happen but once we start educating and empowering are children minds, America can't deal with that.
Charlie Robinson The only people comfortable with that word are the very people who use it. I don't and I never had. It was never meant as a term of endearment and its intentions have always been racist. It has no place in the English vocabulary.
April Butler What we wont do for that money?! So when one of them are in Public dont take offense when someone uses the word on you since y'all are doing for money!
Al Mosley There is only one mindset that wanted to candy coat the word in the first place. When people are talking in the privacy of whatever situation they are in, they rarely say "The N-Word". If they can call a woman a bitch on network television, they need not mask the word Nigger. It is as American as Apple Pie, and as global as White Supremacy. The whispering and mild stroking of the Europeans definition of people of color needs to disappear and there needs to be a full examination and destruction of the ideas, morays, and cultural assignments that have been adapted as a definition for this calling card of destruction, in any context.
Bryan Edwards Why not? It's just a word. Yes sometimes the spoken word has an affect on people. But we lend credence to that word, we validate it's nefarious assault on us, we can also de-teeth the word. We have the ability to make it harmless. I think that's why not using a euphemism is so important. When can we move to that place where we are no longer paralyzed with feelings over being called nigger? We've adapted. We turn lemons into lemonade. We made pigs feet and intestines (plantation plates) into delicacies, and when we were called nigger we turned that into a term of endearment exclusive to blacks. That's what we do. We turn negatives into positives. But why? Why does that word carry with it so much weight? It could've been any word. It's the hate behind the word that gives it it's momentum. So for example if we were called "loops" then that would be considered the "L" word meant as a racial slur. What word do whites loathe as much as blacks loathe the n word? There are none. Does their white privilege make them immune to being upset when called cracker? I'm not saying that whites are the standard by which we should measure if something should be offensive or not, I'm pointing out that being at the top of the social hegemonic pecking order in no way determines if a word will offend you. Offensive words don't discriminate. And they're only as offensive to you as you make them. Blacks can choose not to be offended by the n word if they want. It's a matter of choice
Ronnell Dyson Negro in Spanish means "Black". Negro in Russia means "Black". Any word can be derogatory, "that's my motherfucker right there, I fucks with him/her". Or, "that's a stupid motherfucker right there"!
Myrtis Thompson No it should not! Will they allow other racial slurs to be used against other races? We must demand the same consideration as other races. Jews, pollacks,etc.
Dorothy Goldsmith No one need to use exploitive word for any reason , especially on syndicated sitcoms. I sure people have heard them enough, show some class and respect for children, offering this bias is not healthy for anyone.
Joyce Finch I think that the N word is no more derogatory than calling people faggots, dikes, cracker or any other slangs that have been deemed as one of those "let's not say it " words. This election has opened old wounds that we thought were healed! Chicks call each other bitches and in some circle of friends it's accepted! I guess it's because I've never in my life bared the brunt of racism! I know it's hard to believe but it's true! I might have a different opinion if I had been subjected to it! I have broke bread with, spent the night with, gone to church with, played with and dated whites for as long as I can remember, and never have I ever felt out of place or less than! Yeah, I was blessed in that area. And I don't mean to make light of someone who was on the opposite end of the spectrum. If I have offended anyone, I sincerely apologize!!!
Rain Francica Off topic. At least once a year I get a flash back of a DL Hughley skit from back in the day~ then I cannot get it out of my head even after internet searching for it. All I remember from the joke is the punch line; "fu***ing it up for everybody"! Please ask DL if he remembers that skit. I'm willing to pay just to hear the whole thing again. Thanks.
Denise Lester The word should never be used in LIFE!! Period!! Let alone a TV show! What purpose does it serve? It just gives meaning to the years of ignorance, that the dominant culture has assigned to Black Americans in the first place!! Now, we are calling each other that!! Really? #GetAClue!!
Tabitha Simpson When their bullets no longer penetrate our skin they run out of ammo. Once the word becomes common it loses power and we say what's next.... Too much power in the word,people using it now don't even know the history but if you allow a word to be your God, that's not good...
Terence Crooks Ummm no we already dealing with a crazy country right now that believe we r back in the 50's and 60's so why give these ppl the leeway to use it at any time cause the one thing they will say is"Well I heard it on tv and figured it was ok, then having a president and staff that like to us it doesn't help
Elita Giles I would just like to say the N word and Cussin period needs to be stopped on television. I dont know why writers think that it is necessary. There are too many words in the English Language that could be used to display a person or a characters feelings . I love the era of the 30's and 40's when African American people had pride in how they dressed and how they spoke. The television shows today are horrible. This is all you see is cussin and fightin and you call this entertainment. All they did was take what they did during slavery times and put it on televisions. the ATL houseewives, Love and Hip Hop, all portray blacks in a negative light. They say its entertainment but my question is for who? They should not allow that word to be aired period. You can cry foul when you are a participant. Real Talk.
Al-Jamel Johnson It doesn't matter. The n word has gone through several evolutions and yet people choose to focus on the time in which it was used to degrade brown people.
Gloria Kiss we've just worked hard enough for the last nine years to get it understood ,controled, put into context, and put to rest so blacks can just barely live with it coming from each other mouth so... HELL NO ! we don't need it revived like a revival week of old slave movies during election year know when to walk forward all this hard work was endowed by our elders. . they've already got the chance to see the first Black President. move forward.
Rain Francica No. I don't use it. My children doesn't either. I noticed anyone knows me don't use it around me. Some things belong in history. This word is one of them.

Florida Official Punished After Posting Black State Attorney Should Be ‘Hung From Tree. http://bit.ly/2nNEgLZ

Alva Simmons He should not be suspended, but FIRED!! He should also be investigated and if he has guns, they should be removed from his home.
Sherry Barros How about those who did this to these boys they didn't think to punish those who did this back than... As Trump wants to make America Great just by doing this is what he means.... On this day....March 25, 1931 ....The Scottsboro Boys were arrested The case was first returned to the lower court and the judge allowed a change of venue, moving the retrials to Decatur, Alabama. Judge Horton was appointed. During the retrials, one of the alleged victims admitted fabricating the rape story and asserted that none of the Scottsboro Boys touched either of the white women. The jury found the defendants guilty, but the judge set aside the verdict and granted a new trial. The judge was replaced and the case tried under a judge whose rulings went against the defense. For the third time a jury—now with one black American member—returned a guilty verdict. The case was sent to the US Supreme Court on appeal. It ruled that African Americans had to be included on juries, and ordered retrials.Charges were finally dropped for four of the nine defendants. Sentences for the rest ranged from 75 years to death. All but two served prison sentences; all were released or escaped by 1946. One was shot in prison by a guard and permanently disabled. Two escaped, were later charged with other crimes, convicted, and sent back to prison. Clarence Norris, the oldest defendant and the only one sentenced to death, "jumped parole" in 1946 and went into hiding. He was found in 1976 and pardoned by Governor George Wallace, by which time the case had been thoroughly analyzed and shown to be an injustice. Norris later wrote a book about his experiences. The last surviving defendant died in 1989. "The Scottsboro Boys", as they became known, were defended by many in the North and attacked by many in the South. The case is now widely considered a miscarriage of justice, highlighted by use of all-white juries. Black Americans in Alabama had been disenfranchised since the turn of the century and thus were generally disqualified from jury duty. The case has been explored in many works of literature, music, theatre, film and television. On November 21, 2013, Alabama's parole board voted to grant posthumous pardons to the three Scottsboro Boys who had not been pardoned or had their convictions overturned.
Hattie Sampson May be they gave him the wrong punishment . probably should be him hanging from the tree since he like the idea so much. I'm just saying.
Dillon Shawn ...from the state that brought you zimmerman. Are we really shocked by this?!
Gloria Kiss he shouldn't have a job or career anymore either
Al-Jamel Johnson It's freedom of speech. Sometimes we need to hear raw truth.
Denise Lester That's what happens when you work for a racist system!! Its a wake up call!! #TheyAreNotOnYourSide!!
Deborah Johnson Wake up America, this is always happening. We need to fight back. D.L. Hugh levy can not do it by himself.
Gary Jackson Punished how. A vacation right.
Deborah Blackmon Hi D.L. miss you.
Jay J Bowens Freaking coward

Should a woman feel bad for not wanting to date a man because he is broke? #DLQ

Call now and weigh in: (877) 242-2426

Shana Bobbitt I don't think it's wrong for a woman not to want to date a broke man-particularly if you're not a broke woman. I think it's OK for a woman of means to want a financially equally yoked partner. However, if you're broke too then shut up. Y'all can struggle together!
Cheryl Mimms No not at all. Men are put on this earth to take care of the responsibility of having a woman. Women carry the children, take care of their children, mortgage/rent, Maintence of home, car, food, personal maintenance, family, moral values, homework, job performance, her parents and take care of him sexually!!! She's also the house doctor, mediator, teacher, chauffeur, chaperone, problem solver, gardener, lawn care person, dog pooper scooper...hell you name it. We have female medical issues too. SHE SHOULD NEVER FEEL BAD EVER!! Ijs!!
Deborah Lattimore HELL 2 THE NAW if he's in between jobs I can work with him but if the first question out of his mouth to me is Where do you work and how much you make he can KISS MY NORTH BOUND ASS, AS I WALK SOUTH.LOL
Dillon Shawn ...a woman has the right to date anybody they want to date. That stated...many of these ladies need to remember you can't be mad if you meet a man with money who turns you down because he deems you to be broke by his standards...
Lorraine Wallace It said nothing about love,now, No no she should not. He should not be trying to date with his broke ass . You can't come into a relationship with no kind of money, if he don't have any he expects you to give him what he wants and need. Don't do it leave his broke ass where he is.
Kenneth Roach The world is hard enough for everyone, but especially for a woman, especially a black woman. I'd prefer my 3 daughters and any woman to date a man who has what she has and more. Too many woman bust their ass's putting in hard work and going to school , then somebody comes along thats put in no work, wanting to ride that coat tail. That works for both sex's.
April Butler Depends on what type of situation like how and why is he's broke! From a divorce,child support,lost his job yes those are good reasons! But if you just broke cause you are lazy living wit yo parents and don't work I'll pass! I think money Situations work both ways if he's a genuine man you have been dating for awhile and you know he's trying to do his best with what he's working wit I don't mind being the bread winner that's when you both work together to get financially stable! A Good relationship is not about what you and I have its about what We have together!
Wanda Radd If you have him in your heart and you see him trying to make it happen, stand by him! Nothing wrong with having patience with someone you love 💖 what if you become unemployed? Would you want him to keep you up when you're broke. Think about that! If you can't hold a brother down when he need you " you're not wifey material 💑
Mark Stefan Reinoso Why is he broke though? Many of the qualities that make men financially stable or wealthy are what women want. A work ethic, responsible, passionate, ingenuity, creativity are what make men attractive, and also makes them have money.
LaVetta Branch It depends on the type of man if he's ambitious hard-working a family man treat women well maybe he needs a good woman to motivate but if you're not and you don't have money how would you feel if he didn't want to date you in this day and life it takes a give-and-take nobody understands that anymore everybody just wants and wants and wants and wants and at the end of the day what do you really get I looked past that and I have a wonderful husband who was just that limited funds but had a big heart and Ambitions and goals and now we're married and going places be careful who you turn away ladies
La Tonya Martin It depends on what type of "broke" he is. If he's working living paycheck to paycheck and making something of himself then I would give him a chance. Now on the other hand if he doing as little as possible or just enough to get by then I ain't fooling with him, because that lets me know that he don't want better for himself and he gon be trying to love off of me. I don't have a bunch of money but I've worked hard for what I have and I just want someone who will match my half of the table.
Emmanuelle Alva No!!! I learned the hard way being with a man without ambition is like digging your self in a grave of debts. No thank you! Clean your credit score> 690 and your debt ration to < 10% and we can start dating, traveling, planning for wedding, investing in life insurance and our business,etc.
Jermaine R Eaddy If the guy is broke with no plans of changing his situation then I say "no " she should not feel bad.... But if son is really trying to get his stuff together...and she is seeing him try....then I think a female should re-consider.
Camilla Cobb No not at all. It's alright to set whatever standard you want. Too many women financially supporting men these days. At the same time a man should not feel bad if he doesn't want a broke woman
George Sims No one should ever be made to feel bad for wanting to date someone who can afford to date.... From a man's perspective, I have no problem telling women I currently cannot afford to "wine and dine" them...I am a single parent and my time and money MUST be squarely focused on my child until that child is grown or self sufficient enough for me to socialize "properly"...IMO For me, dating isn't a game...it's an investment into seeking a partner I can grow with and create lasting memories with... That's my 2-cents...
Ursaler Lambert I've had enough of it. I've done it and I'm still married to a man that doesn't seem to want any more than what he has right now and that is what's afforded him. When is enough enough...
Sheila Neville Hell if I know I have to get a job to pay the bills then he should know it too. And he does so he send your dumb ass to work an he'll stay home a rape your children. ..
Allyson Adkins NO!!!!! Keep your standard high, you would be a fool to date a broke man, unless you like taking care of a man and if that is the case you need to check yourself.
Art Green No. But they also cant feel discriminated when a man doesnt want a woman broke too. Standards are all inclusive not gender specific
Roxy Robinson That depends on why he broke. If he broke because he is trying to better himself through education ,or some formal legal entrepreneurship then I'd consider. If he broke because he paying child support and being a good Dad, I'd consider. If he broke because he just unskilled and trifling then HELL NO !! I have always had my own so I don't need a meal ticket. Don't mind treating a man now and then either.
Gloria Wellington A man wouldn't feel bad for not wanting to date a broke woman. Or any other reason. Why do women have to feel any kind of way? If the two are attracted to each other, it's possible to overcome this issue. If he or she becomes broke in the future, will that end the relationship?
Lynn Jones Hell No,,,,, because ALLLLLLL of his little bit of change is probably going for CHILD SUPPORT and I REFUSE to date a guy and help him pay his BABY MAMA... HELL NO
Ashleigh Branch My mama always told me to never feel sorry for a man. I will say, if you are hustling trying to get some money, I see you brother. If you driving for Uber while you're putting your mixtape together, I see you. But if you sitting in your auntie's basement, using a mic and an iMac, smoking weed and hoping somebody listening on sound cloud, then no, I ain't got the time!
Sheila Neville See that's why there are so many broke ass black men out there because dumb ass black women so thirsty for some dick you are willing to take care of a man talking bout if he's trying. ...listen what you ladies need to learn is LET A MAN BE A MAN . Being broke is a recipe for disaster a broke man is never happy when you do everything for him that's why he's always kicking your ass so he can feel like the man he should be
Geraldine Sanchell Yes I feel like it is wrong, because money is not what makes a man a man. When I and my husband met each other we both didn't have much, and I am the happiest I've ever been. Any man sometimes needs a woman that is able to help him put his best foot forward and push a little. Love has nothing to do with car brand's or how many rooms in a house it's up to both and lifting up each other. My point is being a woman isn't hard, it's having a good man without judging him by what he has now rather than getting there later. And I have never been broke nither was my man at the time is now my husband..... money doesn't make a man, we all fall short think about you being turned down cause you are Less fortunate
