Julia Hudson- What's Wrong with these pictures
I have for the past few days been blogging about the Hudson murders. My heart has been heavy over the death of a 7-yr-old who was brutally murdered by some morons. f I also have been critical of Julia Hudson. From her "if you have a beef with me" speech at the press conference about her missing son to her tell them (as if she knew it was more than one who did it) to drop her son off on a curb, she has been the poster child for what a mother should not be.
I had heard from a friend that they heard from a relative who had a relative in the Trump Towers that when they called to the suite of rooms, there was a party going on. I didn't want to publish hear say, but once I was told about another blog site with pictures and captions from Julia's MySpace page, well you all just be the judge.
Note the TV screen in the background on one of the pictures. Sure looks like Sunday November 2. And the photos with Fantasia are before the funeral?????
By the way, the captions are from the poster who we believe is Julia from her myspace page.

Arlene Jones' Biography
I was born in Chicago. I grew up in Cabrini Green. I attended Wells Sr High, the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle where I majored in Spanish and minored in Education. I have a diploma in Computer Programming.
I moved to Austin when I purchased a home here. I have two children.
I have been active in the community since moving here. I started with my blockclub. In the early 1990s, I worked with several people to try and form the North Austin Homeowners Association. I even went on patrol with a group of people who had a walkie talkie car patrol of the neighborhood.
As with most programs in the AA community, many factors led to the demise of those groups. Lack of support from elected officials was at the top of the list.
There were several people who had a group and we met out of DaVinci Manor. DaVinci Manor was at the corner of North Ave and Central where Walgreen now stands. Again there was very little interest in saving that building and our community lost a beautiful hall.
I have protested the state of the Central Ave bridge. I worked with Leola Spann and did many a smoke out including one in the 1500 block of North Lorel where drug paraphenalia layed on the ground. I have over the years here in Austin worked with the following groups at one point or another:
Northeast Austin Organization (Mary Volpe, Tom Hosea);
Northwest Austin Council;
Brotherhood of Black Men;
Westside Health Authority;
Every Block A Village;
25th District Housing Committee;
African American Employees at the Merchandise Mart (AAEMM);
Lafollette Park Advisory Council;
Garfield Park Conservatory Advisory Council;
Westside Executive Advisory Council;
Austin Landmark Cultural Center;
Concerned Citizens of East Garfield Park
and so many others that it gets hard to remember.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing. -- Malcolm X
