Many think it's just a softball game and black folks eating food,NAW it's more than any human can imagine when a Mother apologizes to the Mother who son was killed by her son.THAT'S HEALING AND IT'S TAKING PLACE EVERY WEEKEND AT SOULFUL SOFTBALL SUNDAY.... A new weekly softball game in Nichol Park is shaking up neighborhood boundaries with a radical idea: everyone -- from every part of Richmond -- is invited to play and hang out in the same place without fear of cross-town violence.
“My inbox is flooded with messages from guys in different parts of town,” explains Rodney Alamo Brown, co-organizer of the Soulful Softball Sundays event.
“They say to me, ‘Rodney, I really want to come, but guys from the other side of town are trippin’ and I don’t want to be a sitting duck and get ambushed’,” Brown says.
Soulful Softball Sundays was started by Brown and Antoine Cloird of Men and Women of Purpose to resolve exactly this sort of conflict. What appears at first to be a family-friendly softball game in a park is actually more of a one-stop-shop for community healing.
“How do we lead the horse to the water? That’s what we had to figure out,” Brown explains. “How do you get people to the mental health services they need? How do you peel back the layers of fear people have about leaving their own neighborhood? We said, ‘Let’s take people back to when they were eight-years-old and they had no worries in the world.’ These games are like a reunion of sorts.”
When Brown and Cloird grew up in Richmond, Nichol Park was the spot to play baseball in the city. The two are trying to recreate the innocent playground of their youth, and they invite all of Richmond to join in.
“We’re not handing out pamphlets, we’re just talking with people,” Cloird explains. The most important part about Soulful Softball Su

In a landmark opinion, a divided Supreme Court on Friday ruled that same-sex couples can marry nationwide, establishing a new civil right and handing gay rights advocates a historic victory.In the 5-4 ruling, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the majority with the four liberal justices. Each of the four conservative justices wrote their own dissent.Nearly 46 years to the day after a riot at New York's Stonewall Inn ushered in the modern gay rights movement, the decision could settle one of the major civil rights fights of this era. The language of Kennedy's opinion spoke eloquently of the most fundamental values of family, love and liberty.
Former Major League Player Michael Kelvin Norris (born March 19, 1955) a right-handed starting pitcher who played with the Oakland Athletics (1975–1983, 1990).Norris is best remembered for his spectacular 1980 season. He went 22-9 with 24 complete games and a 2.53 earned run average, while also earning the Gold Glove Award. However, he was not awarded the American League Cy Young Award; Steve Stone of the Baltimore Orioles, who had a record of 25-7, was given the honor. Norris also placed 15th in the MVP voting.In 1981, Norris posted a modest 12-9 record, again earning the Gold Glove Award and also earning an All-Star berth he was denied in 1980. Norris spun a complete game shutout in the first round of the playoffs against the Kansas City Royals and pitched well in the AL Championship Series against the New York Yankees despite getting hit with a loss there.Many believe[who?] that Billy Martin inflicted a heavy workload on Norris, which threw out his arm. He was never able to return to his former stature, and after the 1983 season, he played for the independent San Jose Bees. He made a brief comeback as a relief pitcher in 1990, posting an ERA of 3.00 in 27 innings. As of 2014, he is the only player to win at least one game with Oakland in three different decades.An addiction to cocaine shortened Norris's playing career. In 1999 he was diagnosed with cervical myelopathy, and he had surgery in January 2000 at the California Pacific Medical Center. After recovering, Norris took up golf as a hobby. In 2007, he appeared with Dave Stewart, Mudcat Grant, and Vida Blue in a regular season game between the Texas Rangers and the Oakland Athletics.Norris was well known for his distinctive green fielding glove.

Johnson spearheaded and ignited the asking for Rachel Dolezal's resignation.Johnson set up an online petition through the website MoveOn.Org and has received more than 200 signatures as of Sunday night."We don't care what race she is, but when you are leader, it doesn't even matter if you've made a mistake but the fact that you will not respond to the people, that you won't issue an apology,” Johnson said. “Come clean.”So you mean to tell me that your going to lie within a lie and say you don't understand the question,” Johnson said. “And you don't know if you're African American or not because she had been proudly professing that."Johnson said that's also why she is concerned with the position taken by the national NAACP. Last week, the organization released a statement that said in part: “The NAACP Alaska-Oregon-Washington State Conference stands behind Ms. Dolezal's advocacy record.”Johnson said that record has been based on lies.“I've asked people to boycott the NAACP, do not go to meetings, do not pay membership until they reconsider the decision to back a person they consider a leader, because we don't,” Johnson said..
