Meek’s P.O. has accused Meek of leaving PA on several occasions without informing him of his plans and whereabouts.

He thinks his P.O. is trying to make things difficult because they knew each other growing up in the same neighborhood in Philly. Meek said his P.O. makes him meet in public places and causes him to get harassed by people. He said, "My best thing is to stay traveling. Every time I come back to Philadelphia, someone tries to shoot me or get me back in trouble." The judge has denied his request to change probation officers and said the two need to work it out.

Jada Says White Women Should Cover Black Magazines - With the constant controversy of diversity in fashion, Jada Pinkett Smith has said that if we want to see more diversity in mainstream publications than black magazines should features white women on their covers. She posted her thoughts on Facebook and even created some of her own magazine covers with Queen Latifah on the cover of Cosmo and Charlize Theron on the cover of Essence. Here is what she said
Will there ever be a day in which women will be able to see each other beyond race, class, and culture? There is a question I want to ask today. I'm asking this question in the spirit of thinking outside of the box in order to open doors to new possibilities. These possibilities may be realistic or unrealistic. I also want to make it clear that there is no finger pointing here. I pose this question with the hope that it opens a discussion about how we can build a community for women based upon us all taking a deeper interest in one another. An interest where skin color, culture, and social class does not create barriers in sharing the commonality of being... women. With love and respect to all parties involved, my question is this...if we ask our white sisters, who tend to be the guardians of the covers of mainstream magazines, to consider women of color to grace these covers, should we not offer the same consideration to white women to grace our covers? Should women extend their power to other women simply because they are women? To my women of color, I am clear we must have something of our own, but is it possible to share in the spirit in which we ask our white sisters to share with us? I don't know the answer and would love to hear your thoughts.
