DIVERSITY TV IS KEEPING IT REAL…DIVERSE

Atlanta, Ga.A new media outlet has graced the net with an edge that highlights the talents of some of the most famous to those on the rise. Diversity TV, was created by Tony Jackson as a solution after not seeing people of color adequately represented on televisions’ major networks. The launch of this new site will offer some of the most current music videos, original video and radio programming, news and more.

With more people of color vying for Hollywood’s attention, the television and film industries aren’t straying too far from their comfort zone. Will Smith is still considered a box office hit. Denzel is still the go to guy for depth and Halle is the only leading lady. There is a new class of talent that’s waiting in the wings for their chance at stardom.

Feeling very strongly about the absence of color in most of Hollywood’s successful productions, Tony Jackson says, “You would think that everyone has pretty much given up hope on television and films promoting people of color. You’ve got the same people showing up everywhere and Hollywood feels as if they’ve met their quota.

I decided to exact some change. My goal is to give people of color the opportunity to express themselves creatively in movies, television and theatre and have it widely displayed on the pages of Diversity TV.”

Media contact for Diversity TV is Melissa Stewart and can be contacted at pr_pro1973@yahoo.com or Tony@mydvt.tv.

Soft Skills, Becoming a Better You



Dapper Don Docks Flagship Store in Atlanta

Atlanta just became a bit more fashionable. Not that we needed it, but a well-dressed man can never have too much in his arsenal of finely stitched gear. Never allow a Dapper Don to step out and not have it going on.

From the college prep look of Kanye, the metro-sexual and highly fashionable Farnsworth Bentley, to the hood-to-exec hip hop mogul Jay-Z, Dap Rugget docked its flagship boutique in the heart of Atlanta’s fashionable Bennett Street Design District.

On a night buzzing with excitement about the newest wares, stylists and fashionistas showed up to see what owner and designer Cedric King had to offer to an already primped out industry. Make no mistake, he was ready!

So what is Dap Rugget? Cedric describes his line as, “Dap Rugget is the voice of the unheard polo wearing, urban and suburban inner-city aristocrat with the style and flair of any prince or pauper yet stays true to the knowledge and up bringing of the inner city.”

King has created Dap Rugget which represents a clean and colorful wardrobe that commands attention from the underdressed brother. He contends, “I think men are unappreciated when it comes to dress…no one takes the time to help him pull it together…Let me help him put together that shirt, that tie, those pants and that jacket and those socks.”

“You have guys walking around who have no clue how to dress! But they want to know...when they’re young they never learn how to tie a bow tie and when they get older, they too proud to ask.”

The Dap Rugget boutique offers private shopping to the aspiring fashion forward maven. So if you weren’t privy to watching daddy tie his tie, you can surpass the burning embarrassment of onlookers when your stylist attends to your personal needs and questions.

As if he created a cookie cutter outline of design, Dap Rugget is patterned alongside that of Mr. Ralph Lauren. A long time fan of the brand ambassador, Cedric King went there and took his style a bit further. Polo has the famous jockey on the horse; Dap Rugget has a larger sized rooster donned on the left side of the shirt. The rooster is the brand logo that is Dap Rugget. When asked why a rooster, King responded with, “The rooster is the only animal that can take you from darkness to light. it reminds you that day is ending and night is beginning.” Tailor made for the office, the club or even an amusement park, Dap Rugget is more than some passing fad. It’s the armor for today’s urban male and his accommodating lifestyle. Translation meaning that no matter the time of day or place, rocking Dap Rugget clothing is always appropriate attire.

Oft times we see celebrities branching off and creating clothing lines as a means to streamline their income. Generally these celebrities aren’t the masterminds behind the thread or stitches. Cedric King studied for three years in Italy’s illustrious Paradisio School of Design and honed his craft for fashion. His credits are worn on the backs of Usher, Ludacris, Jazze Pha, Bobby V, Andre’ 3000 and Devyne Stephens.In an effort to add to his repertoire of models, King would like to see his wares draped across the backs Kanye West and Farnsworth Bentley noting that, “They don’t need an upgrade. Their taste level is unmatched. If they feel what I’m doing, it’s like a stamp of approval.”

Senseless Murder Leaves Rapper Juvenile Shocked and Devastated

The rap star Juvenile is "shocked and devastated" by the shooting death of his young daughter, the girl's mother and another child, his manager Aubrey Francis said Saturday.

Last week in Lawrenceville, GA a 17-year-old boy was accused of killing his 39-year-old mother and his 4 and 11-year-old sisters. Now we find out the 4 year old was rapper Juvenile’s daughter.


Anthony Tyrone Terrell Jr., 17, was charged Friday with murder in the deaths at the family home near Lawrenceville, where the bodies were found the night before, said police spokeswoman Illana Spellman. She identified the victims as Gwinnett County Sheriff's Deputy Joy Deleston, 39, and her two daughters, Micaiah, 11, and Jelani, 4.

"It really shocked him and devastated him to the point where I've never seen him before," Francis said. "Right now he is relaxing and trying to grasp everything of what has happened."

The motive was still unclear. Deleston brought a paternity suit in 2004, claiming that 32-year-old rap star Juvenile, whose real name is Terius Gray, was Jelani's father, Gwinnett County court records show. Attorney Randy Kessler, who represented Juvenile in the proceedings, said the case was resolved peacefully by consent order in 2006. Both parties agreed Juvenile was the father.

Terrell was taken to jail in neighboring DeKalb County to avoid any potential conflict because Deleston worked for Gwinnett County, said Lawrenceville police spokeswoman Illana Spellman. She could not confirm Friday whether Deleston's service weapon was used.

Because of his age, prosecutors cannot seek the death penalty against Terrell. A preliminary hearing will be set next week in Gwinnett County Superior Court, prosecutor Danny Porter said.
