‘Appalled’ Atlanta mom tells ‘Fox News Primetime’ about lawsuit against school over segregated classes
An Atlanta mother is filing a lawsuit against her daughter’s elementary school for setting up racially segregated classrooms.
“I was appalled that we are talking about Black classes and segregation,” Kila Posey told host Lawrence Jones Thursday on “Fox News Primetime.”
Posey said she learned what was going on when she was contacted about her daughter’s class placement. She said she was told by the principal that her daughter would be placed in a classroom “by herself with no others that looked like her.”
She said after Atlanta Public Schools investigated the matter, they confirmed that the principal, Sharyn Briscoe, a Black woman, had been practicing racially segregated classrooms at Mary Lin Elementary School.
After that, the APS told Posey that segregating classrooms was neither a practice of the district nor condoned and that the principal would have to stop. Posey told Jones that her daughter still attends Mary Lin Elementary and Briscoe is still overseeing the school.
BLACK MOTHER FILES COMPLAINT AGAINST ATLANTA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FOR RACIAL SEGREGATION: ‘DISBELIEF’
The mother explained that Black students were put in two classes with two different teachers, while White students were put in six classes with six different teachers. Posey also recorded a conversation with an assistant principal, who confirmed it was Briscoe’s decision to implement the segregated classes.
The practice prompted Posey to file a federal discrimination complaint against the school with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights.
Posey added that she wants the principal and her administration removed.
The Atlanta Public Schools said it conducted and wrapped up an investigation into the concerns about segregation, adding that “appropriate actions” were taken in the matter. But for Posey, that is not enough
“We want those practices ended,” Sharese Shields, Posey’s lawyer, told Jones. “It’s a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 Section 6 to treat one race of students differently than another group of students. And so we are asking for the practice to cease.”
Shields also said that APS “revealed that they have not taken any action” and did not specify “what action they are taking to ensure it doesn’t happen in the future.”
“What’s troubling about what [Briscoe] did is that she made a unilateral decision,” Shields said.

“There’s a reason that we have the Title VI of the Civil Rights Act because we cannot have government entities making these sort of race-based designations … I mean, Atlanta Public Schools was one of the first school districts where a lawsuit was filed back in 1958 to desegregate and it was one of the first to be released from supervision of the federal courts when they reached what was deemed a reasonable time period of desegregation.”
Atlanta Public Schools did not immediately respond to Fox News’s request for comment. Briscoe also didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Atlanta Hawks visit Detroit Pistons on NBA Primetime | NBA News
The struggling Atlanta Hawks travel to Detroit to face the Pistons on NBA Primetime, live on Sky Sports Football on Sunday night at 9pm.
The Hawks (8-23) are in rebuild this season and have endured a tough opening third of the campaign as a consequence.
Live NBA: Atlanta @ Detroit
However, they have shown some signs of life recently, winning their last two outings to lift themselves off the bottom of the Eastern Conference. A team effort, led by 22 points from veteran guard Kent Bazemore, lifted them to a 114-107 win over the New York Knicks last time out.
The Pistons (15-15) have experienced a rollercoaster season to date, stringing together runs of victories before slumping to a succession of losses. A five-game winning streak leading into December was followed by six straight defeats. They broke out of that miserable streak slump with a notable 113-104 win over the Boston Celtics.
Detroit have relied on franchise star Blake Griffin to carry the offensive load and the former All-Star has responded well, averaging 25.7 points, 9.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists through 30 games.
In his last three outings, Griffin scored 34 points to lead the Pistons to a 129-123 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, supplied a triple-double in a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks and poured in 27 points in the win over Boston.
Key Battle: Reggie Jackson vs Trae YoungImage: Trae Young attacks against the Dallas Mavericks
As a veteran, Jackson may feel he has a point to prove against the rookie Young, selected fifth overall in the 2018 Draft. The Atlanta point guard has started every game in his first season and, while he has experienced the standard rookie lack of consistency, has also shown the ability to score and pass creatively. Young produced a 15-point, 10-assist double-double last time out against the New York Knicks.

One to watch (Hawks): John CollinsImage: John Collins battles with Denver’s Mason Plumlee
Trae Young isn’t the only young star on the Hawks roster.
Collins is a double-double machine, posting double-figure points and rebounds in nine of his 16 games to date.
Hawks’ coach Lloyd Pierce is pleased with Collins’ progress, telling sbnation: “You just see him becoming more comfortable as a lead scorer and he’s doing it in a variety of ways. To see him on the glass, to see him put it on the floor, and then to see him stretch the floor, you’re just seeing his growth all at once right now.”

Drummond, like Collins, is a double-double threat every night, producing double-figure points and rebounds in 25 of his 30 games this season.

Atlanta’s Ultimate Power Couple Here Comes To Centric Primetime
(BlackNews.com) — Riding the wave of their success as entrepreneurs, Atlanta’s ultimate power couple, Robert and Nicola Jackson has now moved into the realm of reality television as stars on the new reality docu-series, Amateur Millionaires Club. The show, which premiered on July 7th, at 9.00 P. M. EST on the BET-owned cable network Centric, featured the lives of ten (10) African-American millionaires, who made their fortunes using the multi-level marketing business model. The show offers a fresh and exhilarating behind-the-scenes look at these self-made millionaires, and tells the stories of their rise to affluence and the challenges of maintaining their new status.
Robert and Nicola, along with their Amateur Millionaires Club co-stars Stormy Wellington, Chyna Bethley, Dorothy Cook, Kenny Lloyd, Twiler Portis & other cast members heated up the red carpet at the 2012 BET Awards. Robert Jacksons swag level was turned up with his flashy tailored suit from his upcoming Robert Jackson fashion line, while Nicola’s dress from her Nikki J signature line was described as “just stunning” by a top fashion media outlet.
Robert and Nicola Jackson are doting parents of four sons, while also leading a multi-million dollar sales force of over 200,000 people in more than 30 countries across the globe, as Platinum Presidents of Ardyss International, one of the world’s fastest growing health and wellness network marketing companies. In addition, the super couple is each involved in several other business ventures. Robert manages a successful construction company in the Atlanta area while Nicola, a former hair stylist, has launched her own hair line, the Nikki J Hair Collection and is a savvy real estate investor, author and sought-after motivational speaker. Following on the heels of Nicola’s successful book, “Inside the Millionaire’s Vault”, Robert is preparing for the release of his new book on how to be a healthy, wealthy man. As parents of a 15-year-old son with cerebral palsy, Robert and Nicola are also actively involved with many charitable causes and non-profit organizations, promoting research on cerebral palsy and offering support and encouragement for families of children with special needs.
The Jackson story however, is not a one of being born into extravagance. The Jacksons have emerged from a history of health and economic challenges. Just a few years ago, Robert had a typical 9 to 5 and managed his own small business while Nicola worked long hours in her hair salon to provide for their family. “You can’t expect to do the same thing and achieve different results,” says Robert Jackson. “My wife and I decided to try a different approach to becoming wealthy” adds Jackson.
Amateur Millionaires Club provides viewers with an intimate look into the busy, sometimes crazy lives of Robert and Nicola as they balance marriage, parenthood, their religious faith, their businesses and all the trappings of fame and fortune. They are not a perfect pair but in Nicola’s words, they’re “keeping it family.” Their stories are potent but relatable, motivating and inspiring as this power couple spreads entrepreneurial fire across America, using their life stories and lessons to coach ordinary people on creating wealth.

New Orleans Saints Fall to Atlanta Falcons in Primetime Contest, 23-13
The New Orleans Saints (5-7) fell to the Atlanta Falcons (11-1) 23-13 at the Georgia Dome Thursday night.
The Saints will play another game on the road next weekend as they will face the New York Giants on December 9th.
“I take full responsibility for this loss,” Assistant Head Coach/Linebackers Coach Joe Vitt said after the game. “I didn’t do a good job of preparing our football team to come in here and get the job done. We will go back to work tomorrow. The future as far as the playoffs go looks bleak right now but we are still going to work to get better every day. That is our responsibilities as coaches and that’s what we will do.”
QB Drew Brees’ NFL-record streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass came to an end at 54 Thursday night. Brees completed 28 of 50 attempts for 341 yards and a career-high five interceptions.
RB Pierre Thomas carried the football 14 times for 84 yards (6.0 avg.) and RB Mark Ingram was able to carry the ball into the endzone in the second quarter.
WR Lance Moore hauled in seven passes for 123 yards (17.6 avg.) while WR Marques Colston added 71 yards on six catches.
LB Curtis Lofton led the team in tackles with eight (four solo) and DE Cameron Jordan added five stops (four solo) and a sack for a loss of six yards.
The Saints outgained the Falcons 436-283 and picked up nine more first downs than Atlanta. The black and gold defense was able to hold to the Falcons to just 1-11 on third down but the Falcons won the turnover battle 5-1.
Atlanta began the contest between NFC South opponents with the football and was able to move down the field for a touchdown on the game’s opening possession.
RB Michael Turner was able to break away on a run for 35 yards while RB Jacquizz Rodgers was able to pick up 28 yards on two carries. Turner capped off the 80-yard drive with a three-yard touchdown run and K Matt Bryant added the extra point to give the Falcons an early 7-0 lead.
After a touchback, Brees and the Saints offense took the field for the first time of the day. Brees was able to move the ball into Atlanta territory but a second down strike intended for Colston was intercepted in the endzone by S Thomas DeCoud.
At the end of the first quarter, Atlanta took possession of the ball inside New Orleans territory after a solid punt return. QB Matt Ryan was able to connect on all four of his attempts and hit TE Tony Gonzalez in the back of the endzone for a 17-yard touchdown pass. Bryant added on the PAT to increase Atlanta’s lead to 14-0 at the start of the second quarter.
After the Saints defense forced a three-and-out, Brees dropped back to attempt a play action pass on first down. The ball, intended for RB Chris Ivory, was tipped and intercepted by LB Sean Weatherspoon. The Falcons offense couldn’t move the chains and Bryant made a 45-yard field goal to give Atlanta a 17-0 advantage.
The Saints were able to pick up some offensive rhythm on their next possession as Brees connected on three first downs through the air including a 32-yard completion to Moore who made a great catch in the middle of the field. Ingram capped off the drive with a one-yard touchdown run and K Garrett Hartley made the extra point to bring the score to 17-7 with less than four minutes remaining in the first half.
After forcing an Atlanta three-and-out, aided by a sack of Ryan by Jordan for a loss of six yards, the Saints received the ball with less than three minutes on the clock. Brees completed five of six passes for 78 yards but time expired in the first half to stop the Saints drive at the Atlanta three-yard line.
The Saints received the football to start the second half. The black and gold picked up six first downs on a 15-play drive that set up a 21-yard field goal by Hartley that brought the game within one touchdown.
After forcing another Falcons three-and-out, Thomas was able to gain 24 yards on the ground to set up Hartley’s second field goal attempt of the game. Hartley made the 52-yard try and brought the score to 17-13.
Brees then threw his third interception of the game toward the end of the third quarter as S William Moore was able to pick off a pass intended for WR Devery Henderson and returned it 16 yards the other way.
Ryan then connected on two deep passes to Gonzalez and WR Roddy White for first downs before the Saints defense tightened up in the red zone. The Falcons were held to a field goal and Bryant made a 29-yard attempt to increase the Atlanta lead to 20-13.
Late in the fourth quarter, Bryant added a 55-yard field goal with 4:25 remaining to increase the Falcons lead to 10 points.
With one last chance, Brees was pressured by DE Kroy Biermann and his throw was intercepted by DT Jonathan Babineaux with 3:39 remaining in the game.
Then, on the next play, Turner carried for six yards but was stripped. The fumble was recovered by S Rafael Bush.
Inside the two-minute warning, Brees was intercepted by Moore on a deep pass intended for Colston. Atlanta was able to run out clock to give the Falcons a 23-13 win.
Four Predictions For The Eagles Primetime Matchup
The Eagles will get their first crack at national television this season when they head down to Dallas to face the Cowboys on Monday Night. Coming off a lackluster performance last week, the Eagles look to slow down Dak Prescott and the Cowboys’ offense. The Eagles will need to play a complete game on Monday night, and here are four predictions for that Monday night showdown.
1. The Eagles Defense Finally Forces A Turnover
Through two games the Eagles have yet to force a turnover. The Eagles have had their chances, with Anthony Harris and Steven Nelson both having passes hit their hands. The Eagles are due for a turnover and it wouldn’t get much better than forcing your first turnover against Dallas. Look for the secondary to try and get their first interception of the season on Monday night.
Will the Eagles ever force a turnover?
A look at why they haven’t yet: https://t.co/2aZbq64XZb

2. Jalen Hurts And Miles Sanders Both Rush For 100+ Yards
The first two games have shown us that the Eagles will look to stick with the run. Whether it be Hurts, Sanders, or Gainwell, Sirianni likes to run the ball down opponents’ throats. Sirianni has shown trust in both Sanders and Hurts to run the ball, and I’m expecting a big game for both on the ground. The Eagles will look to control the clock and keep Dallas’ big-play offense off the field for as long as they can. The offensive line will look to dominate the Cowboys’ defensive line, especially with DeMarcus Lawrence out, and give whoever is running the ball big holes to hit. Running the ball and dominating the clock is a great game plan against the Cowboys and their potent offense.
Jalen Hurts good vibes today

— John Clark (@JClarkNBCS) September 19, 2021
3. The Defense Holds Ezekiel Elliott To Under Fifty Yards Rushing
This year the Cowboys have turned into a more pass-heavy offense behind the big arm of Dak Prescott. Elliott has yet to get it going this season, and I expect that trend to continue Monday night. The Eagles have a very good defensive line that has played fairly well against the run this season. The Cowboys may try to establish the run early, but if things fail they could quickly turn it into an air-raid offense. Zeke has had a history of doing very well against the Eagles, but I think Monday night is a game for him to forget.
4. The Eagles Win A Hard Fought Close Game
To say this is a must-win game in week three seems like a stretch, but looking at the Eagles’ schedule coming up, it isn’t. With the Chiefs next week and then the Buccaneers two weeks later, things can unravel very quickly for this season. The Cowboys are no joke this year, but the Eagles shouldn’t be taken lightly either. The defense will need to figure out a way to slow down the Cowboys’ offense, and the Eagles’ offense will need to improve after a very sloppy performance last week. This game will be close and the tensions will be high. I am looking for an Eagles rebound after last week and get a big win in Dallas on primetime.
Nick Sirianni will get his first taste of Cowboys week on Monday, and he seems to be embracing it very much. The Eagles need to bounce back after a sloppy game last week. Sirianni and Hurts will both improve after their performances last week and I am looking for a more fired-up team. There shouldn’t be any other needed motivation, it is Dallas week.

In general, if you look at Ben Simmons’s career, it is almost all in spite of, rather than vice versa.What is happening to Symmos now is another proof that he is a stubborn problematic ram who is convinced that he is right, and the rest is up to him.
Simmons now plans to stay away from Philadelphia 76’s training camp, leading to a confrontation with the team. Simmons himself believes that by urging “Phil” to the exchange, he is trying to help out the team that wants to exchange him. And after all, he will stand his ground, no matter how much money it costs to him and the team.That is, he will already fall under the whistle of the craziest fans, who already consider Simmons to be just malicious, which “Phil” once took on her head in the draft.
Now about Simmons himself, who started by wanting to play Australian football, and everything that happens on the floor, for the time being, was on his side. And after all, he left football exclusively in spite of. So, he was told that, they say, guy, you are too poorly developed for our game. You jump badly and defend yourself.So Simmons ended up in basketball to prove how good he can do it all.
However, I don’t think that by the end of his first and only season for LSU, he remembered that he decided to take revenge on #AFL in this way. Now he was interested in a career in #NBA, but even here it became clear that he could not do everything. The throw is what became Simmons’ main problem.
This brings us to a very interesting dilemma that exists. The throw is what is given by the talented.A lot of basketball can be learned and played through hard work. For example, what Simmons does in defense is just that kind of cramming. In addition, his brain instinctively works analytically, immediately highlighting the weaknesses of rivals who are here and now fighting against him. That is, he learned protection inside and out.
Offensively, he works great in the three-second zone, from which, at the exit, we have a young Giannis Andetokumbo. The same newcomer without a throw, but he knows how to defend himself and play under the opponent’s ring.Just look at what kind of anthropometry Yannis has and what Simmons has, and somehow it is immediately clear that, although they are similar, they are not at all similar.
But back to the original thesis about the ram. Recall that even at Simmons University, who is striving for victories, did not want to play in the NIT tournament. I just have no doubt that Simmons was opposed to his team playing in this, the second most important #NCAA tournament. Of course, in that case, it was clearly not his opinion that decided whether “LSU” should be removed from NIT, but they did.
When it comes to #NBA careers, there is another difference worth noting between Andetokumbu and Simmons. The fact is that Yannis is not afraid to seem funny in some cases, trying to learn one or another element. Moreover, in some places Yannis is acting unreasonably risky, seeking to use the best practices that he learned not so long ago. For example, throws from distances, with a deviation. Or a three-pointer. At the same time, the impression is that Simmons just stopped in his development and does not want to move on.
Multiply this by the obstinacy of Simmons, which is based on blind faith in his righteousness, and now it turns out some outcast who does not want to be seen anywhere. I don’t think that if Simmons were exactly wanted, he would now be without a team. Training camps are just around the corner, and it takes time to move and settle. And so we get that around Simmons’ personality is like scorched earth. There are a couple of teams that seem to be interested in this basketball player, but somehow the negotiations are not going very well.Of course, Sixers themselves bent the price tag, but still those who really needed Simmons would not be stopped by the price tag.
TV Channel CNN (Cable News Network)
On June 1, 1980 at 6 pm in the American city of Atlanta began broadcasting the round-the-clock cable news channel CNN – Cable News Network.
In the first year of its existence, CNN brought only losses to Turner – the station lost more than 2 million dollars a month.
In 1981, CNN had its first serious competitor, the Satellite News Channel (SNC), a joint venture between Group W Westinghouse and ABC.Using funds from other activities, Turner bought SNC in 1983, making CNN a monopoly in the cable news channel market.
An important advantage of CNN over its competitors was that the events were broadcast in real time, and not in the evening prime time, as on other channels. The emergence of CNN coincided with the explosive development of communication technologies, as well as with the increased demand for news that was broadcast non-stop by this station. The confluence of all these circumstances led to the growth of the channel, which gradually became profitable, and pushed its creator to enter the world market.In June 1982, broadcasting began to Japan, in September 1985 – to Europe.
Until 1991, CNN was a “regular” news channel, reporting on-time world events. Operation Desert Storm changed the situation. The day before the start of the Allied aircraft bombing of Iraq, almost all journalists left the country urgently. Only the CNN film crew remained in “working” condition in Baghdad, which worked live for the first 19 hours of the war. Terrestrial TV channels around the world were forced to report on the course of hostilities with reference to the Ted Turner’s channel.If before 1991 about 2% of Americans watched CNN, then during the hostilities the channel’s audience increased to 10%. At the end of the war, the Pentagon leadership acknowledged that the military most often learned about the course of hostilities not from reports from the battlefield, but from CNN news reports.
The TV channel has earned a brilliant reputation in the Gulf War. Capitalizing on this success, Turner built momentum: CNN expanded its correspondent network by opening offices around the globe.
As a result, Turner’s television set the “gold standard” for broadcasting.More than a billion viewers were sure that they would always find out about any event as quickly and accurately as possible from the live broadcast of CNN.
It was then that politicians and sociologists drew attention to the so-called “CNN effect”: the ability of a television company to influence strategically important decisions made by the White House. The US military operation in Somalia is usually cited as the clearest example of the CNN effect. In the winter of 1992, several American television channels, including CNN, aired a series of reports on the famine and civil war in that country.These reports provoked a violent reaction from American citizens. The public literally forced the US President to sign a decree on December 9, 1992 on the beginning of a humanitarian operation in Somalia.
In 1996, CNN and other Turner Broadcasting System channels became part of the Time Warner media corporation, where Ted Turner took one of the leadership positions.
