Infant Dies In House Fire After NY Mother Leaves Her Home Alone

Firefighters found the body of a dead 2-year-old girl as they put out a fire at a Brooklyn apartment. The infant had been left in the apartment by her stripper mother, who had gone out partying, police sources said. Kaleenah Muldrow’s body was found hidden under a bed in the third-floor apartment shortly after the fire had torn through the top of the Monroe St. building in Bushwick and was put out at 7:30 a.m. Police charged the child’s mother, Leila Aquino, 20, with endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment, saying she didn’t return home until  about 9:30 a.m. When asked, she told investigators she left the toddler with someone — but then bizarrely claimed she didn’t know who she left the girl with. “She used to take care of her,” Kaleenah’s paternal great-grandmother, Jean Archibald, 73, said of Aquino. “I’ve never heard of (Aquino) doing anything like this. I guess people change.” NY Daily News

White College Students Who Referred To Their Roommate As A Slave Avoid Hate Crime Convictions

In 2013  three assailants forced Donald Williams Jr., a 17-year-old freshman at San Jose State University, to wear a U-shaped bike lock around his neck. In another incident, prosecutors said, the three men tried locking Williams in a closet. They also referred to him as “three-fifths” of a person, among other harassments that a jury ultimately concluded were not hate crimes. Joseph “Brett” Bomgardner, 21, was convicted of misdemeanor battery along with his accomplices, Logan Beaschler and Colin Warren, both 20. A jury of six men and six women, none of which were African American, were deadlocked on the charges. Attorneys for the defendants said the abuse was nothing more than a “prank war” that was “immature” and went too far.  Huffington Post

New Study Says African American Men Are At A Higher Risk For This Disease

According to the Center For Disease Control a new study has found that: 1 in 2 African American MSM [men who sleep with men] and 1 in 4 Hispanic MSM will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime, compared with 1 in 11 white MSM. For Black women and Hispanic men that number is around one in 48, compared to one in 227 for Hispanic women, one in 132 for white men, and one in 880 for white women. Social economics have been cited as a reason behind the disproportionate stats amongst the various races. “If we work to ensure that every American has access to the prevention tools we know work, we can avoid the outcomes projected in this study” said Dr. Eugene McCray, director of the CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention. Clutch Magazine
