An advertisement for a strip club is an advertisement for sex trafficking – Kanye West says

Speaking at Joel Osteen’s church on Sunday, the American rapper and father of four viewed strip clubs as a form of sex trafficking.

“They got posters advertising sex trafficking because if there’s an advertisement for a strip club, that is advertising sex trafficking,” Ye explained around the . “At the end of the night, when they close up, the manager says, ‘How much traffic do we have?’” he asked.

He continued, “So if it’s a man that’s going through things with his family or going through things at work and he feels he has to go there, we all end up participating—or whether it’s the spirits that get advertised to us all the time. Alcohol, they call it a spirit.

“So we get constant advertisement for spirits, we get constant advertisement for strip clubs and other things like that, but then we bring up the name of Jesus, we’re told to be quiet,” he added, referencing his gospel album Jesus Is King. “So even for someone who’s professing God…the devil is going to come and do everything he can to distract people from knowing how to fully be in service to the lord.”

Raheem Sterling to be offered new £350,000 Man City deal to make him one of English football’s highest-paid players

Raheem Sterling



England international, Raheem Sterling, is set to be offered a new bumper £350,000 Man City deal just one year after signing a £300,000-a-week extension last November.

Sterling is currently one of the world’s best players and has seen his stock rise after scoring 14 goals in all competitions this season and Real Madrid have put him top of their shopping list for next summer with Barcelona also keeping a close eye too.


Man City boss Pep Guardiola is a big fan of Sterling and doesn’t want to lose him to any of Spain’s big clubs and has told the club to do everything to keep Sterling happy.

Sterling’s current deal expires in 2023 but City’s attempts to tie him down underline his importance to the Premier League champions.



Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
