Ezysarel James and I shared some great moments on our web talk show. We were making impact and didn't realize how much. #RIP

Antonio Darrielle: I am a cast member of R-List Atlanta with roots of Montgomery, AL. Being born into a large and grounded family I was taught the Real values of a man. After being a two time college dropout I began my quest in the entertainment industry. Since 2006 I have modeled, acted, and written. Because of my Real desire to succeed I’ve been blessed to work for film makers Michael Harris and Tyler Perry. Most recently I co-wrote the newly released “Marginalized Men.” I am an R in the R-List Atlanta because I get in the trenches and create opportunities when there aren’t any.

***Sherman Hemsley Dies at 74***
People.com
By Maggie Coughlan

Sherman Hemsley, who played George Jefferson on The Jeffersons, has died at 74, according to police.
The actor, who first played the role of Jefferson in All in the Family, also played Deacon Ernest Frye on TV's Amen.
Hemsley died at his home in El Paso, Texas, police say.
Born in South Philadelphia, Hemsley dropped out of high school to join the Air Force. He returned to Philadelphia and worked for the U.S. Postal Service, while taking acting classes at night.
After performing with local groups in Philadelphia, Hemsley moved to New York to make his Broadway debut as Gitlow in Purlie.
While touring with the production, television writer and producer Norman Lear contacted Hemsley to play the role of Jefferson on his new sitcom, All in the Family. Hemsley hesitated to accept but Lear held the role open for him and two years later, Hemsley joined the cast.
Less than two years after Hemsley made his television debut, he and All in the Family costar Isabel Sanford were given their own spin-off in The Jeffersons. The series earned Hemsley Emmy and Golden Globe nominations in 1984 and 1985 respectively.
Sanford died in 2004 at age 86.
In 1986, Hemsley was cast as Deacon Ernest Frye in the NBC series, Amen. The role would last five seasons, ending in 1991.
He was also a professional singer and released a single on Sutra Record called "Ain't That a Kick in the Head" in 1989. In 1992, he released Dance, an R&B album.
Although he retired from television acting, Hemsley joined Sanford through the late '90s and early 2000's to reprise their roles as George and Louise "Weezy" Jefferson on guest spots. The duo appeared on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and in commercials for Old Navy, Gap and Denny's.
Hemsley had no wife or children.

***Actor Andy Griffith dead at 86***
By Michael Pearson, CNN

(CNN) -- Actor Andy Griffith, who played folksy Sheriff Andy Taylor in the fictional town of Mayberry, died Tuesday at the age of 86, his family said.
Griffith died at about 7 a.m. at his home on Roanoke Island, according to Dare County, North Carolina, Sheriff J.D. "Doug" Doughtie.
He passed away after an unspecified illness and "has been laid to rest on his beloved Roanoake Island," the family said in a statement.
"Andy was a person of incredibly strong Christian faith and was prepared for the day he would be called Home to his Lord," his wife, Cindi Griffith, said in the statement issued through the Andy Griffith Museum in Mount Airy, North Carolina.
Best known for his role on "The Andy Griffith Show," the University of North Carolina music graduate also starred as a murder-solving Southern attorney in the television series "Matlock" during the 1980s and 1990s. He was also known for his roles in movies and on the stage, as a producer and as a Grammy Award-winning gospel singer.

***What the health care ruling means to you***
CNN.com
By: Josh Levs, CNN

(CNN) -- The Supreme Court's decision Thursday to uphold the Affordable Care Act means that the predictions about how it will affect all Americans remain in place.
Here are some highlights:
The uninsured
The decision leaves in place the so-called individual mandate -- the requirement on Americans to have or buy health insurance beginning in 2014 or face a penalty -- although many are exempt from that provision.
In 2014, the penalty will be $285 per family or 1% of income, whichever is greater. By 2016, it goes up to $2,085 per family or 2.5% of income.
Health care exchanges, which are designed to offer cheaper health care plans, remain in place as well.
The insured
Because the requirement remains for people to have or buy insurance, the revenue stream designed to help pay for the law remains in place. So insured Americans may be avoiding a spike in premiums that could have resulted if the high court had tossed out the individual mandate but left other requirements on insurers in place.
Young adults
Millions of young adults up to age 26 who have gained health insurance due to the law will be able to keep it. The law requires insurers to cover the children of those they insure up to age 26. About 2.5 million young adults from age 19 to 25 obtained health coverage as a result of the Affordable Care Act, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Two of the nation's largest insurers, United Healthcare and Humana, recently announced they would voluntarily maintain some aspects of health care reform, including coverage of adult dependents up to age 26, even if the law was scrapped.
People with pre-existing conditions
Since the law remains in place, the requirement that insurers cover people with pre-existing medical conditions remains active.
The law also established that children under the age of 19 could no longer have limited benefits or be denied benefits because they had a pre-existing condition.
Starting in 2014, the law makes it illegal for any health insurance plan to use pre-existing conditions to exclude, limit or set unrealistic rates on coverage.
It also established national high-risk pools that people with such conditions could join sooner to get health insurance. As of April, a total of only about 67,000 people were enrolled in federally-funded pools established by the health care law, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
More than 13 million American non-elderly adults have been denied insurance specifically because of their medical conditions, according to the Commonwealth Fund. The Kaiser Family Foundation says 21% of people who apply for health insurance on their own get turned down, are charged a higher price, or offered a plan that excludes coverage for their pre-existing condition.
All taxpayers
No matter what the Supreme Court had decided, it would have been a mixed bag for all Americans when it comes to federal spending. There is heated dispute over what impact the health care law will have on the country over the long term.
The federal government is set to spend more than $1 trillion over the next decade to subsidize coverage and expand eligibility for Medicaid. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that the law could reduce deficits modestly in the first 10 years and then much more significantly in the second decade.
The CBO said a repeal of the mandate could reduce deficits by $282 billion over 10 years, because the government would be subsidizing insurance for fewer people. But the nation faces costs in various ways for having people who are uninsured. The Urban Institute's Health Policy Center estimated that without a mandate, 40 million Americans would remain uninsured.
Meanwhile, the Flexible Spending Accounts that millions of Americans use to save money tax-free for medical expenses will be sliced under the law. FSAs often allow people to put aside up to $5,000 pre-tax; as of 2013, they were to face an annual limit of $2,500.
Small business owners
The rules and benefits small business owners face as a result of the health care law remain in place.
As CNN has chronicled, the law brought a mix of both. The director of the National Federation of Independent Business is one of the plaintiffs who pushed the court to strike down the law. Meanwhile, a group called Small Business Majority fought to protect the law, saying its loss could be a nightmare.
As of 2014, under the law, small firms with more than 50 full-time employees would have to provide coverage or face expensive fines.
All Americans, in lesser known ways
The massive health care law requires doctors to report goodies they get from medical supply companies; demands more breastfeeding rooms; requires all chain restaurants to list calories under every menu item, and includes numerous other provisions, which now remain in place.
Doctors and other health care providers
Health care providers have already begun making changes based on the 2010 law, and in preparation for what will go into effect in 2014. Those plans continue.
In the short term, doctors avoid "chaos" that may have resulted from the law suddenly being dropped or changed, according to Bob Doherty, senior vice president of governmental affairs at the American College of Physicians, who wrote a blog post on the website kevinmd.com this spring.
Medical groups have disagreed over the law.

***Romney, GOP struggle with immigration issues***
By Tom Cohen, CNN

Washington (CNN) -- Mitt Romney spent the presidential primary campaign trying to convince conservatives of his right-wing credibility on immigration issues.
He labeled rivals Newt Gingrich and Texas Gov. Rick Perry as soft on illegal immigrants for suggesting some leniency for specific categories, such as students or long-time community members. He rejected the DREAM Act that would provide a pathway to citizenship for some young illegal immigrants. He called part of Arizona's controversial immigration law a model for the rest of the country.
Now Romney's stance of a few months back is under scrutiny as the certain Republican presidential nominee seeks support from the mainstream electorate, including the increasingly significant Hispanic population.
President Barack Obama's recent move to halt deportations of some DREAM Act-eligible immigrants and Monday's Supreme Court ruling against key provisions of the Arizona law brought fresh attention to immigration issues, causing obvious discomfort in the Romney camp.
The situation requires a delicate political dance, and so far, the former Massachusetts governor has appeared determined to sit this one out as much as possible.
At a campaign event Tuesday, Romney touched on the topic by faulting Obama for failing to enact comprehensive immigration reform, which he said created a "muddle" that Arizona tried to address with its own law.
Romney said Monday that he supported state-based solutions, noting the Supreme Court ruling in the Arizona case went in the other direction, and he promised broad immigration reform if elected president.
However, he provided no details, leaving his surrogates to struggle with interviewers pushing for specifics on Romney's immigration policies.
Mitch McConnell, the normally tough-talking Senate Republican leader from Kentucky, sounded subdued Tuesday when asked by reporters about his stance on the Obama administration's halt in some deportations.
"Discussions are underway both inside the Republican conference and with the (Romney) campaign about that issue," McConnell replied, adding that Obama's move had put the topic on the "front burner." He then turned the microphone over to a GOP colleague.
The day before, Romney spokesman Rick Gorka repeatedly stuck to noncommittal responses when grilled for several minutes about the candidate's stance on a controversial provision in the Arizona law requiring police to check the immigration status of crime suspects.
Such equivocation concerns Republicans seeking more leadership from Romney on an issue that resonates with Latino voters.
"I'm getting increasingly frustrated as a Republican Hispanic not seeing him engage," said Ana Navarro, a Republican strategist and CNN contributor.
Obama's failure to deliver on immigration reform in his first term leaves the president vulnerable, Navarro argued Monday night on CNN, but only if "Romney puts on the gloves and engages."
Immigration reform: Back to square one
"For some reason, he's been unwilling to do so," Navarro continued, noting Romney "dug himself into a hole during the primaries. He's got to proactively dig himself out of that hole. Telling us that Obama is bad is not enough. He's got to tell us that he's good and what his plan is."
Republican Rep. Ben Quayle of Arizona also advised Romney to be more aggressive, saying the candidate should challenge the Obama administration's failure to fully enforce existing immigration laws by halting some deportations and other steps.
"Gov. Romney should be up and talking about this and really hammering it home, saying, 'Look, we're a nation of laws, we need to enforce our laws, and we can't let the president go around Congress and disregard how our legislative process is supposed to work,' " Quayle told Fox News on Monday night.
To Democrats, Romney painted himself into a corner by embracing conservative immigration policies in the primaries to court the political right wing.
"He cannot hug and kiss the tea party and then try to hug and kiss the Latino community," former White House adviser Van Jones told CNN Monday night. "That's why he's hiding."
The Arizona case illustrated the differences between the candidates, Jones said.
"What Alabama was to black folks in the last century, Arizona has now become" for Hispanics, said Jones, who is African-American.
"This president is clear. He does not agree with the direction of Arizona. Where is Mitt Romney? Mitt Romney is being a profile in cowardice. And he's losing Latinos now on both sides of the aisle over his cowardice."
Wendy Schiller, a political science professor at Brown University, cited the stark differences between Obama's immigration move versus conservative ideology that opposes any leniency for illegal immigrants.
"The Republicans can't win by attacking this policy because they're attacking people who are innocent of any crime -- just being with their parents," Schiller said last week about the administration's halt in deporting some young immigrants who came to America as children and were good students or served in the military. "How can you support a policy that would break up families? You can't."
Obama, meanwhile, took a "major, major step toward cementing the bond between the Latino community and the Democratic Party in an active way" by stopping the deportations, according to Schiller.
"This could be the single act by Obama that brings Latinos to the polls in record numbers in 2012," she said.
Navarro, however, said an Obama victory in November would not automatically mean further immigration reforms.
"Obama's going to come in, if he wins a second term, as a lame-duck president from day one into a Congress that is now a poisoned well" because of his unilateral move to halt some deportations, she said.
"We have got one candidate, Barack Obama, who makes big promises, talks real pretty, and then doesn't deliver," Navarro added. "And then we have got another candidate who talks without saying anything and really not making any specific promises. So for Latinos, it's not much of a choice."
