Mellody Hobson To Become Starbucks Vice Chairwoman

After several incidents that have taken place at Starbucks this year, the company is making several changes within the month. Last month, the company closed their stores for Racial Bias training to teach their employees how to treat people as one.

Now the company will be adding Mellody Hobson as the Vice Chairwoman, making her one of the very few African Americans in history to occupy such a role at a Fortune 500 company. According to Black Enterprise, Hobson is one of the most respected and knowledgeable black business leaders.
Hobson’s resume speaks for itself with being a director at a number of public companies and institutions: DreamWorks Animation, Groupon, The Estée Lauder Companies Inc., and Starbucks Corporation. She was also the first African American woman to head The Economic Club of Chicago.
Mellody Hobson will take her new position as the Vice Chairwoman at the end of June after longtime chairman Howard Schultz steps down.

    Ex football player Tanard Jackson aka Mr. Fuck Up My Career For Drugs baby momma Christina Fatemi now suicidal over the fact he is on his 4th kid and left her for his new girlfriend Shante Alesia Steward. Tanard Jackson hasn’t paid child support to none of his kids mom. Christina struggles with finding a job and trying to keep up with the Joneses. She currently relies on section 8 and food stamps to maintain. She’s completed her CNA certificate and hopefully that works out for her. Tanard Jackson now relies on selling drugs and using fraudulent prescriptions to obtain promethazine with codeine, Percocet’s and oxycodon to makes ends meet and to find pleasure in his drug habit. His now girlfriend Shante who also indulges and provides him with the fraudulent prescriptions. Please keep Christina Fatemi, Shante Alesia Steward and Tanard Jackson in prayer. Everything that glitters ain’t gold.

    Struggling with grace….
    Look at my face do you see my strain can I mask my pain… I think I’m insane with all that goes on in my brain…I make you think I’m ok, But I’m not ok.. today may just be a bad day. I have no money, I have someone in my life who’s love is funny…Do you see my pride when I step outside how I wear a armour..so no one can harm her… Do you look into my eyes and wonder if they cry..Oh Lord I would die if I didn’t have you inside..I just hide what they can’t see…. I have faith.. So I will continue to struggle with Grace…
