Tuesday Open Thread: Black Fitness Gurus

Donna Richardson  (born November 3, 1962) is an American fitness and aerobics instructor, author and ESPN television sports commentator. Widely known for her series of fitness videos, she was appointed in 2006 by President George W. Bush to serve on the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. She also produces and hosts Donna Richardson: Mind, Body, & Spirit, which airs on TV One and Sweating In The Spirit, which airs on The Word Network.

She has served on the Women’s Sports Foundation Board of Trustees and is an Advisory Board Member for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

Richardson is a native of Silver Spring, Maryland where she graduated from Montgomery Blair High School. She was Blair’s first African-American homecoming queen. Richardson cites Saundra Woods of Montgomery County Public Schools as the teacher who most influenced her to excel and attain success. She graduated from Hollins College with a degree in Health Education and Dance.

Richardson met popular syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner in 1997 after being a guest on his radio show. They became engaged one year later in August 1998, while in Philadelphia en route to the airport. On July 29, 2000, Richardson married Joyner in Montego Bay, Jamaica and had a week-long honeymoon in Venice Italy. A report in December 2012 announced that Richardson and Tom Joyner had separated, in May 2012, in order to divorce. The New York Daily News stated that the separation is “mutual but not exactly amicable.”

She resides in Dallas, Texas. Despite this, she is a staunch Washington Redskins supporter.

Certified by AFAA and ACE as an International Fitness Expert, Richardson-Joyner began her fitness career as an aerobics instructor, after responding to a challenge to take an aerobics class. She eventually moved on to teach other instructors. Eventually, she began to compete nationally and internationally in aerobics competitions.

In 1992 she was hired as a co-host of the ESPN Fitness Pros Show and co-starred in her first commercial fitness tape, Platinum Buns of Steel.

Richardson Joyner was selected by The Oprah Winfrey Show as one of the “Top 5 Fitness Video Instructors”. She was selected by Fitness Magazine as one of their “Top 10 Movers and Shakers” and was inducted into the Fitness Hall of Fame.

Richardson Joyner not only was the star of Sweating in the Spirit, she was also the executive producer. Richardson Joyner has lectured in 40 countries and has been a featured motivational speaker with several national tours including God’s Leading LadiesSisters In The Spirit and the Pantene Total You.

Donna was named by Essence magazine for being “one out of 25 most inspiring women in America” in 2006.

Richardson Joyner is in the Guinness Book of World Records for creating and leading the world’s largest line dance, with over 50,000 participants at Megafest hosted by Bishop T. D. Jakes in Atlanta, Georgia.

        That old fb post is re-appearing, the one from Jr.’s college dorm mate, who describes an open hand slap that knock him to the ground when he opened the door to 45.

        I’m wondering if his defense will be trauma from child abuse. As GLH reminds us…it’s called karma.

    This was sort of overlooked yesterday. It was announced that Dolt45 will NOT be building a new FBI Headquarters. This had been years in the making.
    FYI-the story was that the contract was to be given to one of Kushner’s business partners. I can only think that someone got back to them and told them, nope, it couldn’t happen. A building that sensitive, the contractor would be chosen from a group of long trusted and proven contractors. There’s NO WAY that anyone remotely attached to Kushner would pass that smell test.

    So, once again , out of spite ( remember Qatar?), In order to bring the FBI ‘the heel’ , here goes Kushner.

    Muthaphucka , they are THE F.B.I……and, you think that they’re NOT going to retaliate?

    • Kennymack1971

      Of all the people to pick a fight with…they chose the federal law enforcement & intelligence community.

      They really are this stupid.

        Morning, MsKitty

  • Kennymack1971

    Yep they’re all going down. But how jacked up is it you’d throw your own son under the bus to save Ivanka’s husband?

    • MsKitty

      Makes total sense though. Ivanka is the only one who he might have actual human feelings for (how appropriate said feelings are is a discussion for another time). He wouldn’t think twice about throwing the other 4 kids overboard.

      • Miranda

        Remember when he flat out said he was less proud of Tiffany?
        http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/donald-trump-proud-tiffany-lesser-extent-article-1.2864804

        He gives not a damn bout any child except Ivanka. Baron couldn’t pick his Daddy out of a lineup if Trump was standing there next to Migos.

        • MsKitty

          Not to mention the fact that it wasn’t a secret that he tried to pressure Marla into getting an abortion when he knocked her up with Tiffany.

          So Tiffany might as well just take the money and run and hang tight with the Maples side of the family tree, because Daddy and sibs ain’t studying her.

          • Town

            After this is all over, Tiffany might be changing her name to “Tiffany Maples” and giving Daddy, Ivanka, Donny & the other one the “I don’t know her” treatment.

            Tiffany Trump is probably the most well adjusted & decent child Trump has, mainly because he ignored her and she wasn’t raised around him.

      • jds09

        Hummmmm…..maybe not. I remember that the guy who ghost wrote the Art of the Deal and spent 18 months with 45 said when talking about his life, he never spoke about Ivanka.

        As a person with Daddy issues (not as severe), my guess is that Ivanka made a decision to turn herself into an imagined female image of The Donald and took the side-kick role in his life.

        He will dump her just as soon as she becomes a problem.

    • Town

      Donald Trump would sacrifice his wife & children’s lives (except for maybe Ivanka) to save his own skin and all of them know it. He figures he can get a new wife and kids somewhere else. So of course he would sacrifice Jr. to save himself/Jared/Ivanka. He never cared about him anyway.

    Quote of the Day
    July 11, 2017 at 8:29 am EDT

    “President Trump is the greatest thing that’s happened to this country. I consider it a Biblical miracle that he’s there.”
    — Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), quoted by the Birmingham News, at a Senate candidate forum.
    http://www.al.com/news/birmingham/index.ssf/2017/07/seven_gop_candidates_pitch_the.html

    • Luther really is strange.

    • Kennymack1971

      Luther Strange…sounds like the name of a villain from an old Black exploitation movie.

      • Town

        Yes, Luther Strange is the white villain in the old movie who poses as a respectable businessman/politician by day but pumps the black community full of drugs, alcohol and strippers on the low, and is exposed, disgraced and jailed at the end of the movie.

    Russian Lawyer Who Met With Trump Jr.: I Didn’t Have Clinton Info They Wanted
    JUL 11 2017, 9:13 AM ET

    MOSCOW — The Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. during the presidential campaign denied in an exclusive interview with NBC News that she had any connection to the Kremlin and insists she met with President Donald Trump’s son to press her client’s interest in the Magnitsky Act — not to hand over information about Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

    “I never had any damaging or sensitive information about Hillary Clinton. It was never my intention to have that,” Natalia Veselnitskaya said.

    When asked how Trump Jr. seemed to have the impression that she had information about the Democratic National Committee, she responded:

    “It is quite possible that maybe they were longing for such an information. They wanted it so badly that they could only hear the thought that they wanted.”

    China says ‘China responsibility theory’ on North Korea has to stop

    Source: Reuters

    Tue Jul 11, 2017 | 7:21am EDT

    China hit back on Tuesday in unusually strong terms at repeated calls from the United States to put more pressure on North Korea, urging a halt to what it called the “China responsibility theory”, and saying all parties needed to pull their weight.

    U.S President Trump took a more conciliatory tone at a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday, but he has expressed some impatience that China, with its close economic and diplomatic ties to Pyongyang, is not doing enough to rein in North Korea.

    That feeling has become particularly acute since Pyongyang launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that some experts believe could have the range to reach Alaska, and parts of the U.S. West Coast.

    Asked about calls from the United States, Japan and others for China to put more pressure on North Korea, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said it was not China ratcheting up tension and the key to a resolution did not lie with Beijing.

    SMDH…53% of white women voted for this…because women should be ripe for “baby-hosting” (yeah, that’s what she said). This isn’t about abortion, this is just about sex. This is about any and all birth control methods because these folks believe any sex should be solely for pro-creation and that is IT.

    Foes of Obama-Era Rule Work to Undo Birth Control Mandate
    JULY 10, 2017

    WASHINGTON — From the obscure perch of a backbench senator’s office, Katy Talento used to warn against what she saw as the health hazards of birth control pills — cancer, infertility and miscarriage. From his post at a Christian legal advocacy group, Matthew Bowman spent years attacking the requirement that most health insurance plans cover contraception under the Affordable Care Act.

    Now on the inside — one at the White House, the other at the Department of Health and Human Services — Ms. Talento and Mr. Bowman have a clear path to prosecute their strong belief that birth control coverage should not be a mandate from Washington. Both are using arguments they honed over years of battle to ensure that a new rule, expected to be issued this month, to roll back the requirement can withstand legal challenge.

    For some of the Trump administration officials tasked with reversing President Barack Obama’s legacy, the path forward has been somewhat rocky. Turning an ideological viewpoint into legislative or administrative policy able to pass legal muster can be difficult for Washington newcomers.

    But the architects of the Trump contraceptive reversal, Ms. Talento, a White House domestic policy aide, and Mr. Bowman, a top lawyer at the Department of Health and Human Services, have the experience and know-how that others in the administration lack. As a lawyer at the Alliance Defending Freedom, Mr. Bowman assailed the contraceptive coverage mandate on behalf of colleges, universities and nonprofit groups that had religious objections to the rule. Ms. Talento, a former aide to Senator Thom Tillis, Republican of North Carolina, spent years warning about the health risks of certain contraceptives, especially birth control pills.

    Ms. Talento, a Harvard-trained epidemiologist, mused two years ago on talk radio that she understood why doctors prescribed cancer chemotherapy drugs, despite their horrible side effects: The disease is worse. But why, she asked, would they prescribe the birth control pill?

    “Pregnancy is not a disease,” she said. “Pregnancy is a sign of health.”
    “There are other ways to avoid pregnancy and to space children’s birth if necessary and appropriate, if a family or a woman wants to do that,” Ms. Talento said. “You don’t have to ingest a bunch of carcinogens in order to plan your family.”

    “The longer you stay on the pill, the more likely you are to ruin your uterus for baby-hosting,” Ms. Talento wrote in The Federalist, a conservative web magazine, before she became President Trump’s special assistant for health policy.

    Isis were defeated in Mosul because of Barack Obama’s training strategies, says Pentagon official
    15 hours ago4 comments

    Pictures of the Iraqi soldiers celebrating their defeat of Isis in Mosul marked a milestone in the fight against the Islamist group but it was also a victory for Barack Obama’s strategy in the region, a senior Pentagon official has said.

    While the Iraqi armed forces staged an exhausting nine-month siege around the city of Mosul, the US-led air campaign in Iraq and Syria initiated by the former president appears to have proved successful in weakening Isis forces.

    The US and its allies, including but not limited to the UK, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Turkey, also provided continual training and advised proxy local forces without sending their own troops into action.

    • Town

      Either Donald Trump Jr. is very stupid or he figures if he’s going down, ERRYBODY is going down with him.

      • Miranda

        Methinks it’s the latter….although he IS very stupid too.

    Morning Fam!

    I hope everyone is engaging in self care.

    I was off the grid last night and apparently missed all the fun. So… the son is just like the father: sittin’ on the toliet tweeting whatever comes to mind, not realizing that it will send his ass to Sing Sing? And yes, I believe he is also like his father in that he’s going to tell it and tell it all, and take EVERYBODY with him. So, they can throw him under the bus, but the wheels are gonna roll over everybody.

    Trust and believe that no one involved in this mess will go to Club Fed.

    The son of the president just released the smoking gun and the people are laughing about it on the news.

    I chased this story for a year and he just…tweeted it out.

    Like. I spent hours and days and weeks and months. And his son just, hit tweet.

    I tracked down sources. Followed so many dead leads. Labored over this. And then, he just, you know, tweeted out the proof.

    I’m not entirely convinced I’m not having a break from reality.

    For the record, I’m beside myself in relief that this stuff is out there it’s just…my god. I cannot believe this.

  • jziglar

    People need to realize that Donald Trump, his kids, and associates are morons. These people are not that bright. Just a bunch of greedy grifters. So don’t expect so grand strategy or plan to get of this because there isn’t one. That’s why I said comparing this to Watergate is stupid for many reasons because at least Nixon and his associates who were involved were smart people, can’t say the same for the Trump clan.

    • Town

      Nixon won the popular vote.

      • jziglar

        Right. Nixon actually won re-election by one of the largest landslides in electoral history winning 49 states, and this happened when the Watergate story and investigations were starting to accelerate. Nixon actually had high approval ratings during this period, while Trump was widely disliked before the investigations.
