Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.

Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

Help drop the child abuse charges against Shanesha Taylor by signing this petition at change.org.

Are black men on Scandal getting the short end of the stick? Thought provoking article by Jonathan M. Butler on VyneWorld.com

"the lack of black male sexuality"….oh my god…really? Cause black men are never hypersexualized in American culture…Also, literally everyone on Scandal has murdered somebody, Fitz, Jake, Cyrus, Sally, Huck and Eli….However, I do agree Harrison needs a storyline.
