It was an event that attracted people to the table to address the growing divide between the African American community  and police around the country.

The big disconnect appears to be trust and that’s exactly what Houstonians focused on for the big charity basketball game that simply expressed unity in our community.
Houston rappers and entertainers faced off against police officers in the sporting event that was designed to bring both sides to the table to show there is room for dialogue despite high profile clashes between the police and communities around the country.

Some of the people participating in the United We Stand game Sunday afternoon in Houston were Propain, DJ XO, Kirko Bangs, and many more.

The teams were sponsored by nightclub V-Live Houston and Straight Lace Entertainment.

By the way, Straight Lace Entertainment’s team won the basketball game.

The event was organized by Latasha Eleby of Houston and sponsored by Double Dose Entertainment!

The son of now deceased NBA legend Moses Malone says he was brutally attacked outside a popular Houston nightclub.

An attorney representing Moses Malone Jr. says his client was brutally beaten and robbed at gunpoint of $50,000 in jewelry last Saturday morning. 

George Farah says security at V-Live Houston on Richmond Avenue did nothing to stop the assault and the suspects were allowed to run into the club after the robbery. 

As a result of this incident Malone Jr. is in hiding in another state because his attorney says he fears for his life.

Carl Moore, the attorney representing V-Live, says their security force broke up the attack and the men involved took off running down Richmond Avenue.

Moore says the club prides itself on providing security for all of their customers.

Malone Jr., who is a regular of the bikin bar, can be seen on V-Live throwing money into the air…a gesture known as making it rain.

Meanwhile, Farah says, “all I can tell you is that my client was brutally attacked unnecessarily and there is a police investigation and we will proceed accordingly.”

A spokesperson for the Houston Police Department says they’re still investigating the case and they have a long list of people to question in the incident.

NFL PLAYER TONY HILLS REACHING OUT TO THE YOUTH IN THE COMMUNITY!

NFL Offensive Tackle Tony Hills is using his Free Agent time to reach out to the community that raised him. This week, on two occasions he will be speaking with high school students about how to “tackle” life. “I can relate to the kids because I grew up in this same area, single mom working multiple jobs to raise and provide for a household of young men the best she knew how. I want to let them know that their circumstances don’t define them, their will to rise above them does.”

On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, the 6 foot 5 inches Hills will stand tall in front of almost 600 students at South Houston High School in the Pasadena area. About half of his audience will be made up of male and female varsity athletes and ROTC Cadets.

The Alief Elsik High School graduate will be a featured speaker on Friday, May 20, 2016 at Harmony Schools “Kick Off To College” celebration in support of the upcoming Super Bowl in Houston. The more than 4,000 attendees will get a peek at his Super Bowl 50 ring and be inspired by Hills’ stories of defeat and victory.

Hills has played with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys and, most recently the New Orleans Saints, with whom he is now in negotiations.

A former NFL player has taken to the streets to try and get noticed by the Houston Texans football organization.

Joseph Anderson posted a photo of himself on Instagram standing outside of NRG Stadium holding a cardboard sign.

It reads ‘not homeless but starving for success.’ It goes on to say he will run routes for food.

Anderson’s Wikipedia page shows he’s a wide receiver who is currently a free agent.

The bio also says he was was signed by the Chicago Bears after going undrafted in 2012 but was later released by the team.

It also shows Anderson attended Texas Southern University.

No word yet if anyone at the Texans’ camp has seen Anderson or his sign.
