NewsOne Now: Double Standard In Teacher Student Sex Scandals


Have you noticed there is a double standard when a female teacher sleeps with students verses a male teacher sleeping with students? When a male teacher sleeps with a female student there is outrage, but when a female teacher sleeps with a male student there is a totally different reaction. Roland Martin takes your calls during the radio portion of “NewsOne Now.”

On Tuesday, a federal appeals court temporarily reinstated Texas’ controversial voter ID law. As a result, more than 600,000 registered voters, mostly Black and Hispanic, may be disenfranchised and denied their right to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

Roland Martin and the “NewsOne Now” Straight Talk panel (Daniella L’egerWilmer Leon and Stephanie Brown James) discuss how this decision may impact voters, what types of identification are valid and the GOP’s continuous efforts to suppress the Black vote.

Tracy Wilson Mourning, wife of NBA hall of famer Alonzo Mourning, joined Roland Martin on “NewsOne Now” to talk about her mentoring program Honey Shine Inc.

Honey Shine’s mission is to encourage African American girls and young women to break through stereotypes and take their place in society as strong leaders.


Honey Shine’s mission is to encourage the balance of mind, body and soul in girls and young women by providing nurturing experiences that enlighten their paths and empower their future.

During their chat on Wednesday, Mourning stated there is an attack on our young women of color and we are passing it off as entertainment. She went on to explain that it is not ok for our women and girls to act the same way we see them portrayed in the media.

Comedians TL Fitz, Nikki Moore and Detroit Boat  brought the funny to “NewsOne Now” with Roland Martin for Wildin’ Out Wednesday. This week our comedians panel laughed it up about Martin’s ash patrol, missing neckwear, the White House fence jumper and the appearance of Martin’s “golf shirt chest hair” during a recent Rollin’ With Roland segment. Listen to all of the laughs below.
