Rolling Out Magazine: Omarion took a stand against a London nightclub that was accused of racism. On Sept. 26, Zalika Miller and four of her friends attempted to party at DSTRKT nightclub in London. However, the promoter told Miller that if she was bringing Black girls than they needed to have a certain look.

When they arrived at the club, the person at the door told them the club was at full capacity. But other White men and women were allowed to enter the club afterwards. Miller, who knew the club promoter, sent several text messages. The promoter responded by saying that Miller’s friends were “too dark” and “overweight” to be allowed entry. Miller, who is an actress, took to social media and shared her story as other people revealed similar incidents of racism.

Dozens of people protested at DSTRKT and called for all Black celebrities to boycott the venue. Karrucehe Tran received some backlash after she made an appearance at the club days after the women were denied. Karrueche denounced the discrimination allegations, but some were upset that she decided to party at the club.

On Oct. 2, promoters at DSTRKT announced an appearance by Omarion. However, the R&B star tweeted that he would not support the club. Reportedly, the club owners have denied discrimination, but they have yet to apologize to the women who were insulted due to their skin tone.


Justin Campbell Leaving KFBB


By Kevin Eck on Sep. 30, 2015 – 4:56 PM1 Comment

Justin Campbell is leaving Great Falls, Mt. ABC affiliate KFBB for Charlotte, N.C.

Campbell told TVSpy he’s moving to Time Warner Cable’s News 14.

“Thank you Great Falls it’s been a once in a life time experience!” Campbell wrote on his facebook page. “It was bone-chilling cold, but so many Montanans stopped and dug me out after sliding into a ditch. It’s the winter that makes Montanans who they are, some of the most hospitable people I have ever met. I couldn’t have done it without you or my co-workers. Next stop #QueenCity
Charlotte NC.”

It was back in August when we first reported Yvonne Cazares bought a house in an upscale community on Rosemont in Pearland.

The local business owner said she had plans to flip the house as soon as possible.

But Cazares says when she tried to move into the half million dollar home another man moved in claiming he was the legal tenant.

After hiring an attorney and waiting weeks we’ve learned Cazares will finally be able to take possession of the property next week.

Court records show the so called tenant will be served and removed from the property as soon as next week.

When we first approached the man back in August who referred us to his attorney. That attorney said they would handle the case in court
and had no further comment.


It’s time for an Isiah Factor exclusive. For the first time we are taking you inside the new Krispy Kreme store located on Highway 6 in northwest Harris County. While inside the store I ran into a regional manager who said they plan to open 8 stores in the Houston area over the next few years. She says the Westheimer store will be the first to open by the middle of the (October) month.

The manager says the Highway 6 store is expected to open at the end of October. Why? That Krispy Kreme rep said they wanted to open the largest store first and that would be the Westheimer location. We’re told that store will be able to produce 200 dozens of donuts per hour while the Highway 6 location can handle only 100 dozen per hour.

The manager also said we can expect stores near Katy and even on Kuykendahl in the Spring. So let’s start the countdown guys!


A second Texas man has pleaded guilty to hate crime offenses for his role in a Mar. 8, 2012, assault of a gay African-American man in Corpus Christi, announced U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson and Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta, head of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.

Jimmy Garza, 33, pleaded guilty in federal court in Corpus Christi today to one count of conspiracy to commit hate crimes and one count of a hate crime violation based on the victim’s sexual orientation.

During the plea hearing, Garza admitted that he and others conspired to assault a gay African-American man because of his race and sexual orientation. Garza admitted that during the assault, he and his co-conspirators punched and kicked the man, and assaulted him with various weapons, including a frying pan, a mug, a sock filled with batteries, a broom and a belt.

Garza admitted that when the victim began to bleed, the conspirators forced him to remove all of his clothing and clean up the blood throughout the apartment. After the victim was completely naked, Garza held a gun to the victim’s head, while a co-conspirator sodomized the victim with a broom handle. During the assault, Garza poured bleach onto the victim’s face and eyes, and struck him with a handgun. The conspirators also whipped the victim on the back with a belt.

Note: This case was handled by Assistant US Attorney Ruben Perez. He has been very successful at handling civil rights cases like this in Texas. Way to go Ruben!

Garza acknowledged that throughout the assault, the conspirators repeatedly called the victim racial and homophobic slurs and made other anti-black and anti-gay statements.

Garza will be sentenced on Dec. 9, 2015, and faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. He will remain in custody pending that hearing. Co-defendant Ramiro Serrata Jr. pleaded guilty to the same hate crime charges in connection with this offense on Sept.15, 2015. He is also set for sentencing on Dec. 9, 2015.

“The gruesome evidence heard in today’s plea of guilty underscores the importance of prosecuting hate crimes under our authority to protect the civil rights of all our citizens,” said Magidson. “These cases will continue to be a high priority of our office.”

“The federal hate crime to which Jimmy Garza Jr. and Ramiro Serrata Jr. pleaded guilty to was as shocking as it was reprehensible,” said Gupta. “The Department of Justice will continue to use every tool at its disposal to vindicate the rights of victims of violent crime.”

This case was investigated by the FBI’s Corpus Christi Resident Agency with assistance from the Corpus Christi Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ruben Perez and Trial Attorneys Jared Fishman and Nicholas Durham of the Civil Rights Division.

Former Harris County District Attorney employee Denise Garcia has alleged in a complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) that she was terminated because she invoked various constitutional rights during a traffic stop and because she made a complaint to the Houston Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division.  She also claims that she was investigated and fired without being accorded notice of the accusations against her.

The District Attorney strongly denies Ms. Garcia’s accusations.  Her termination from employment had nothing to do with her exercise of constitutional rights or with her complaints to the Houston Police Department.

In her EEOC complaint, Ms. Garcia also states, “I was discriminated against because I am Hispanic.” 
The District Attorney’s Office did not discriminate against Ms. Garcia on the basis of her race.  As will be developed in more detail during the EEOC’s review proceedings, the decision of the District Attorney’s Office to terminate Ms. Garcia was based on a careful factual review of Ms. Garcia’s conduct in which she was accorded an opportunity to be heard.  At no point in this process was her Hispanic heritage a factor of any kind in the office’s decision to terminate her employment.

Ms. Garcia’s accusation is particularly disappointing given the District Attorney’s commitment to running an office in which improper discrimination has no place. 

“Since taking office two years ago, I have taken great care to ensure that the office is inclusive and encouraging to everyone on the staff,” said District Attorney Devon Anderson.  “I have made it clear to our staff that First Assistant Belinda Hill and I have an open-door policy to listen to and act upon any concerns about discriminatory or other inappropriate workplace conduct, without fear of retaliation.”

The District Attorney looks forward to a fair and expeditious review of Ms. Garcia’s complaint in which the facts of Ms. Garcia’s termination will be fully developed.

The Houston Independent School District will begin its second year with Read Houston Read, a program which aims to improve literacy among Houston students by having a volunteer read to them once a week throughout the academic school year. 


Read Houston Read’s purpose is to instill a love of reading to children, while giving Houstonians an opportunity to give back to their community. It is part of the district’s Literacy by 3 movement, which aims to end the literacy crisis in Houston through its mission to have all students reading on grade level by the end of third grade.

Read Houston Read helps students reinforce what they are learning in the classroom. Students have the opportunity to improve their reading skills with a mentor who is giving them their undivided attention. 


“Our nation is facing a literacy crisis and Houston is not exempt,” said Superintendent Dr. Terry Grier. “The HISD team is passionate about improving literacy in our city, and Read Houston Read allows us to take it a step further by helping a child develop a love of literature.”

HISD has identified nearly 500 first-grade classrooms at almost 80 schools, where children are in need of a mentor who can provide one-on-one support. Volunteers are asked to read to their assigned first-graders for thirty to sixty minutes once a week, either in person or over the internet via online conferencing.

Volunteers are required to pass a background check and attend a training session, which is online. From there, they are assigned a classroom and are able to schedule weekly sessions with their assigned student.


Last year, more than 400 volunteers dedicated their time through the program. HISD teachers have said they quickly began to see noticeable improvement in the comprehension and reading skills of participating students.
