Rep. John Lewis, Singer Usher and Others Attempt to Push Out Protesters

Black Lives Matter protesters interrupted presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Friday while she spoke at the historically Black university, Clark Atlanta University.

Protesters chanting “Black lives matter” and “Hell You Talm Bout” disrupted Clinton’s speech, with Clinton backers responding with chants of “Hillary, Hillary” and “Let her talk” to drown them out.

The action was organized by members of #AUCShutItDown, a coalition of students from the Atlanta University Center, which includes Spelman, Morehouse, and Clark Atlanta. The organization posted a statement on social media calling out law enforcement and university administrators for “multiple offenses committed against Black and brown lives.”

(Pontiac) Silverdome to be demolished

PONTIAC, Mich. -

Plans are in the works to have the Silverdome in Pontiac demolished, said a spokesman for Triple Investment Group.

The former home of the Detroit Lions went on sale earlier this year for $30 million. However, there was never any reported interest from prospective buyers.

The owners instead will demolish the Silverdome and sell the land. The owners don't have a time frame right now for when the demolition will begin.

The stadium, which at its peak seated more than 90,000 fans for NFL games, has not had a regular tenant since 2002.

So it finally ends. My hometown of Pontiac has dealt with this white elephant for almost a decade after the Lions left. Sad to see history fall through the cracks, but a clean slate on that property is better for the city and the county versus an inflated dome. :/
