Whoopi Goldberg Denies Being An African-American, Says She Is American

For many years, black Americans have been labelled African-Americans and not simple Americans, because their ancestors came from Africa.
Whoopi Goldberg has caused many to raise their eyebrows in curiosity due to comments made during Tuesday’s (January 5) airing of The View.
During a discussion on immigration, comedian and co-host Joy Behar joked many would flee the country if Republican frontrunner Donald Trump were elected president. Goldberg didn’t seem to think the comment was funny, and quickly scoffed at the idea.
“You know what uh uh! This is my country,” the Academy-Award winner said. “My mother, my grandmother, my great grand folks, we busted ass to be here. I’m sorry. I’m an American. I’m not an African American, I’m not a chick American, I’m an American!”
The other co-host Raven who has in the past expressed the same sentiment agreed, saying,

“I’m an American! I’ve been here too long to not just hold American.”

Goldberg added; “Since the 1700’s my people have been here,” the Oscar winner pointed out. “So I’m an American alongside of the Native-Americans.

Health Tips: Common Vaginal Infections That Affect Pregnant Women

During pregnancy, there is an increase in vaginal discharge which is usually clear in color and odor free. Certain infections find the extra discharge during pregnancy a good place to thrive therefore exposure to certain factors which includes sharing of public services can cause a woman to contract these infections. If your discharge during pregnancy is yellowish and has odor, you need to speak with your doctor soon.
Disruption to the PH levels is the reason for vaginal infections. These disruptions can come via having sex, and can be treated by taking antibiotics.
There are four common vaginal infections ranging from common to rare that can affect a pregnant woman. These infections are:
#1   Yeast Infections
During pregnancy, estrogen and progesterone help create an environment that the yeast infection thrives in and exposure to it can lead to contracting it.
The itching and burning sensation in the vagina when one has contracted yeast infection comes from the overgrowth of candida, which is a fungus that lives naturally in the vagina.
Your doctor can diagnose a yeast infection with a simple vaginal culture; she inserts a cotton swab, collects a sample of your discharge, and looks at it under a microscope.
  • Pain and itching in the vagina; the area can sometimes feel raw too
  • Redness and swelling of the vagina and labia
  • Thick, curdled whitish-yellow discharge; may or may not have an odor that smells like bread baking
  • Pain or discomfort during sex
  • Burning while urinating


A cream or ovule that you insert into your vagina, or an oral antifungal medicine such as Diflucan.


  • Wear cotton underwear, which will allow air to circulate and absorb any discharge.
  • Sleep without underwear–this can reduce your risk of infections.
  • Stay well hydrated to help flush out toxins. Drink at least eight glasses of water a day.
  • Urinate regularly to help eliminate infection-causing bacteria.
  • Eat complex carbohydrates and whole grains instead of refined sugar to help decrease the environmental factors for infections.
  • Consume yogurt often. Lactobacillus, naturally found in yogurt, is a probiotic that promotes proper digestion and is known to help prevent vaginal infections.
#2   Trichomoniasis
According to Center for Disease Control ad Prevention, there’s an estimated seven-point-four-million new cases of trick or trich (as its popularly called) every year. It is the most common and most curable STD. This infection lives in the vagina and is transmitted sexually.
  • Greenish yellow discharge with a frothy look and foul smell.
  • Itching, burning and irritation during sex.
  • Your doctor can treat Trich with Oral antibiotics.
  1. You and your partner should get tested when you get pregnant so that any STDs found will be treated in both of you rather than the woman being treated only to be reinfected by the man later.
  2. Stay with one sexual partner to avoid catching trich.
  3. If you or your partner has trich, always use protection when you want to have sex.
#3   Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
Survey carried out by the National Institutes of Health records ”approximately one in every five women will develop the itchy and irritating infection called Bacterial Vaginosis”. 
Shifting hormones during pregnancy sometimes influences the overgrowth of bacteria that lives naturally in the vagina. BV, if left untreated, will have persistent symptoms and the baby may be born premature, or underweight. For non-pregnant women, BV can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, which can cause infertility or damage the fallopian tubes.
BV can be diagnosed with a simple vaginal culture; your doctor inserts a swab, collects a sample of your discharge, and looks at it under a microscope.


  • Thin grayish-white discharge
  • Pain during urination
  • Itching around the vagina
  • BV is one of those very rare infections that goes away on it’s own without needing any form of treatment. Doctors usually wait to treat you in your second trimester if it’s diagnosed you have BV.
  • More often than not, the infection Clears up in the first trimester. Certain antibiotics will do the trick so talk to you your doctor on what works for you.
  • Never sit around in a wet bathing suit or sweaty panties; always put on a clean pair of cotton underwear after you’re finished swimming or working out.
  • Wear comfortable, cotton underwear that will allow air to circulate. Avoid tight pantyhose or pants, which can cause bacteria-inducing sweat.
  • Sleep without underwear–this can reduce your risk of infections.
  • Wipe front to back when you go to the bathroom. This will keep bacteria spreading from your anus to your vagina.
  • Skip bath oils — they can trap bacteria.
#4   Group B Strep (GBS)
20 to 25 percent of all healthy woman have GBS bacteria living in their system, usually in the intestinal tract, rectum, or vagina. Your doctor will automatically test you for GBS between weeks 35 and 37 of your pregnancy.
Because many healthy people have GBS living in their bodies, it’s unclear why some individuals develop more serious infections from GBS while others do not, according to the Mayo Clinic’s website. –
  • While GBS may cause Urinary Tract Infection, UTI in some women, it shows no symptom in others. General signs of UTI includes cloudy urine, a sudden urge to urinate, pain or burning during urination.
  • If a woman tests positive for GBS, she will be required to take antibiotics during delivery to avoid passing on the infection to her baby. (Without antibiotics your baby is at risk for early-onset GBS disease, which causes fever, difficulty feeding, and lethargy.)
Unfortunately, there’s no way to prevent GBS.

How Igbo trader sold five-month-old son for N400,000 to boost business

igbo traderA 28-year-old man, Okwuchukwu Ibekwe, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly selling his five-month-old son to a child trafficking syndicate in Anambra State for N400,000.
According to reports, Ibekwe and his wife had on December 17, 2015, contacted one Chinelo, still at large, for the transaction.
Ibekwe, who lives on Shinaba Street, in the Iyana Iba area of the state, allegedly had some difficulties in his trade and decided with his wife to raise some money by selling the baby.
The syndicate, through a woman, identified only as Chinelo, who stayed in Ihiala, Anambra State, paid the Ibekwes N400, 000. Ibekwe was said to have received N250, 000 as the father of the child, while the mother received N150, 000.
Trouble reportedly started when Ibekwe had a quarrel with his wife after returning from his trip to Anambra where he sold his baby. It was gathered that when he refused to give the wife her share, she reported the matter to the police and absconded.
Ibekwe was subsequently arrested and detained at the Police Gender Unit, Ikeja, while police operatives also arrested Chinelo’s husband in Anambra State. The baby and Chinelo had yet to be found.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP, Fatai Owoseni, while confirming the arrest and parading the suspect before newsmen on Wednesday, said the case was undergoing “intense investigation.”
Owoseni said, “The suspect is assisting the police with information to recover the baby.
“We are intensifying efforts to recover the baby,” the CP added.
While being paraded, Ibekwe said he collected N400,000 from Chinelo in exchange for his son with the full knowledge of his wife.
He said, “Chinelo was to give me N400, 000 for the baby. My wife was the one who suggested that we dispose of the baby to meet our business needs.
“But Chinelo gave me N250, 000 for the baby when I went to deliver him to her in Anambra State.
“When I returned, my wife and I quarrelled and she ran away for three days. I did not know that she went to report the matter to the police. She was concerned with her own share of N150, 000.
“I sell vehicle spare parts in Ladipo market.
“It was a lawyer who called me that my wife had reported me to the police, and that I should come and see her. When I went there, I was arrested.

“I do not know the whereabouts of my son. I did not know Chinelo would run away with my child,” Ibekwe added.
