I just read the news a little while ago....sad.

May our brother have peace and comfort on the Other Side.


I don't like the way so much of the media reported him having a heroin overdose and reported the drugs he allegedly had around him.
That was very disrespectful in my opinion.
They don't do this with White celebrities who overdosed.
It takes them damn near a month to "determine the cause" of why 20 year old Josh died and even then they may never report his drug use.

I'm also wondering could it be something else that may have taken his life...........

I agree and I apologize for including all that but I am

on my iphone and I just copied and pasted the news.

 

I am very upset, this should not have happened.

 

Life is so precious and it seems like people don’t care 

about themselves. 

 

Another celebrity, Fuquan Johnson, overdosed this

weekend as well.

 

I am so tired of this!

Actually I wasn't even thinking about you reporting it when I was posting....lol.
I'm certain you didn't have any evil intentions behind mentioning Michaels drug use, but I believe many of those in the media DO.

These racists in the media will use any excuse to assassinate the character of Black folks.
They'll take every opportunity...from reporting drug overdoses, to reporting looters, to reporting mothers leaving babies in hot cars to die......ANY excuse they can to show a Black person in a negative light.

I heard about Fuquan and almost forgot about him until you brought him up.
I didn't know much about him except that he was a comedian out in L.A.

Certainly is a lot of relatively young Black celebrities (along with Hank Aaron) dying this year.
