Written by 

Optimized-lilphatBaton Rouge-based rapper Lil Phat, born Melvin Vernell III, was shot and killed outside an Atlanta hospital last night. Reports indicate that he was visiting his newborn baby when he was shot several times while sitting in his car in the parking deck near Northside Hospital. Police are looking for two persons of interest who were seen running from the scene.

Lil Phat was a member of the Trill Entertainment family which also features Webbie, Foxx, Mouse, and Lil Boosie. It was on Webbie’s single “Independent” where Lil Phat made his name. The Trill family of artists have been in the news recently as Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie was acquitted of first degree murder charges stemming from the 2009 shooting of Terry Boyd.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
