The mother and father of a young man killed by an illegal immigrant are voicing their support for Donald Trump. "He's trying to do something and they're trying to shut him down," declared the victim's mother.
In 2008, Anita Shaw was serving in Iraq when her son, a high school football standout, was gunned down near his home in Los Angeles by gang member and illegal immigrant Pedro Espinoza. Jamiel Shaw Jr. has been described by his parents as an excellent student athlete who was drawing interest from Stanford and Rutgers University. His parents called Shaw, 17 at the time of his death, a "regular" church attendee.
Espinoza is said to have confused Jamiel's spider man backpack for a rival gang's colors. more >>
Their 3-year-old son who liked to wear his sister's clothes and pink boots told them last year that he was unhappy being a boy. Now, an Oakland couple is trying to keep their son happy by supporting his transition from a boy named "Jack" to a girl called "Jackie."
"Jackie just looked really, really sad; sadder than a 3-and-a-half-year-old should look," the boy's mother, Mary Carter, told NPR about the life-changing moment last year when she decided to support his transition from Jack to Jackie. "This weight that looked like it weighed more than she did, something she had to say and I didn't know what that was."
"So I asked. I said, 'Jackie, are you sad that you're not going to school today?' And Jackie was really quiet and put her head down and said 'No, I'm sad because I'm a boy,'" said Carter. more >>

Sarah Jakes Roberts, daughter of popular megachurch pastor Bishop T.D. Jakes, who wed Touré Roberts, senior pastor of One Church International in Hollywood, California, last fall, recently revealed that she was "nearly arrested" after showing her "tail" during her previous marriage to former Redskins linebacker Robert Henson.
"In my previous marriage I was nearly arrested," Jakes Roberts explained in a discussion with ESSENCE about identifying your soul mate, along with her husband. "I mean, I showed my tail, okay? So being vulnerable and being treated like a lady wasn't something that I had really become accustomed to because I was so used to being tough and taking care of myself."
