OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.

Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.

He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

Phylicia Rashad Speaking Spanish and Her Audition Tape From ‘The Cosby Show’

"That was a wonderful character element that unfortunately didn’t stay. I don’t know why." - Malcolm Jamal Warner. Oh, we know why…

"There are a wealth of Spanish speaking African Americans who share my passion for the language.  One is one of America’s sweetheart Ms. Huxtable who learned Spanish when her family moved to Mexico during her childhood. I encourage my African American brothers and sisters to learn Spanish and Portuguese to connect across the diaspora.” - Black Girl, Latin World

a letter to my girlfriend's ex →


from woman to woman

now to then

could be to could’ve been:

i don’t know how to be you.


'i'm sorry'

is a yawn that lingers in my throat

ready to escape like thoughts at midnight:

i’m tired of tiptoeing around my city like it belongs to you

for fear that you shared a burger here
