Ludacris Cited by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeal

In what is perhaps the eighth sign of the apocalypse, 64-year-old U.S. appeals court judge Terence Evans demonstrated that he knows a "ho" when he sees one, in this footnote from a recent Seventh Circuit opinion he authored in U.S. v. Murphy:

The trial transcript quotes Ms. Hayden as saying Murphy called her a snitch b!tch "hoe." A "hoe," of course, is a tool used for weeding and gardening. We think the court reporter, unfamiliar with rap music (perhaps thankfully so), misunderstood Hayden's response. We have taken the liberty of changing "hoe" to "ho," a staple of rap music vernacular as, for example, when Ludacris[/size] raps "You doin' ho activities with ho tendencies."


LMAO!!!  My guess is that some poor clerk somewhere'll be gettin the axe.. I understand the need to differentiate between a hoe and a ho, but did they really need to include the actual lyrics?!

That's it?!  Oh, c'mon professor...

man i actually loved property..i guess that makes me lame   :P... but torts? i remember calling my mom and laying in the fetal position asking her to fly to dc to hold me ... :D :D :D.. i guess tort professors are dry all across the country

:D :D :D.. so let me ask you this .what class did you hate the most your 1L? for me it was torts


oh to be a pre-1L again ;)

You ain't never lied . . . .and I was just there a year ago!!!! :D

I would have to agree.  Even though I had to teach myself property because our professor was so confusing, it was still interesting. At least landlord tenant and easements and covenants were practical.  My torts prof was way out there. Very theoretical.  She didn't make it practical for us, so it was hard for half of us to understand her. Her class was hit or miss . . .either you walked out knowing that you understood the material or you walked out thinking why the hell am I here?

Don't say this!! I'm taking torts and contracts over the summer and I was hoping it might be sorta fun  :-\  Please don't tell me i'm starting off my law school experience with the worst class ever. This can't be good...

elote=corn

the corn man!  tell me, do they go around with a cart ringing a bell and yelling out "elotes!"

the cheese MC is talking about is like grated white cheese.  kinda like parmesean.  i'm not sure what they use where you are.  it varies. 

They go around with the cart and the bell, I don't think they yell anything though.  I'll have to keep an eye for the cheese next time.  What is the cheese supposed to go on?

Since they coat the corn cob in mayo, the cheese sticks to the mayo. They can also put chili powder and butter on.

Mmmmm ...

Damn that does sound good.  I always get the mangos but I'll have to try the corn next time.

..I'm starting to think I may actually miss home.  I doubt there'll be any elotes on the east coast.

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: ask a black dude!

this may be a result of a question answered previously and it's not necessarily just to ask a black guy, but why do there seem to be more black guy/white girl relationships than white guy/black girl

Personally, I'm not trying to see any pink privates.  It's gross but its the truth.

Hey Lexington, I got news for you...Even after you get those papers, dont expect that man to answer to anybody but himself. ;D

Yeah, probably  :-\  Sad but true  :D

..And I agree with your "radical" sex views.

I agree with you blk. i think that having "friends" is fine if you're dating, but I feel like if you make a committment to somebody, it should be serious. i think the difference in what you and lexington are saying has to do with a fundamental difference in what being in a relationship means. and maybe that relates to age in some respects. for example, at 24, i am not necessarily looking to get married right now, so even being in a committed relationship might be a stretch for me, b/c i feel like i wouldn't be in a relationship with somebody who didn't have the potential for something more committed. on the other hand, i think some people see having a boyfriend just as having somebody to hang out with/take them to dinner or whatever. i know it may sound weird, but a woman in my family has told me stuff really similar to what you're saying lexington. she thinks that dating shouldn't necessarily be serious and dating lots of people at one time is a good thing. i know im just not the one to do that on a serious level.

I think a commitment can and should be serious.  I wouldn't make someone my boyfriend if I didn't feel like there was any long-term potential, but I do realize that its an exploration and that people can flip the script at any moment.  Until you get those papers, don't expect that man to answer to anybody but himself!


Made, you are a fool! LMAO  :D :D

Women are always going to step up to a man at some point..even if they’re married… that’s just how it is.. it is up to the man to handle that situation properly… I agree with you on that..

But I do believe that in some ways it is disrespectful to adopt new friends of the opposite sex when you are in a committed relationship.. each relationship that i have entered.. I didn’t enter it with the thought of “perhaps this won’t work out”… I give all of my being to the man that I am with and that’s just how it has to be.. and I know that he does the same..

I don’t believe that I’m placing “restrictions” on my man by doing that..however I would have a serious problem if he was going out to breakfast/lunch/dinner with another woman..and that has nothing to do with trust.. it’s all about respect..

The reality is ..there is always a huge possibility that there will be an emotional attachment that develops if two people bond… whether it is one sided or not.. it can exist..so there’s no need to put yourself in a situation where you’re thinking.. “damn I like this trait that this new guy possesses that my current beau does not”… that creates confusion and disappointment

I think that if something is meant to be then it will be..nothing will stop or come between that.. but to look at “different models” while you’re involved isn’t right IMO.. let the break up be because the relationship didn’t work out..not because someone else comes along


I really believe that someone can't "take" what belongs to me.  If they can, then it was never mine to begin with.  New friends, old friends, co-workers, classmates, whatever - there are legitimate reasons for your man to be spending time with someone else.  And If someone can bond with him and touch him in a way that I can't, then he owes it to himself (and to me) to make that move. That's not be confused with meeting someone and appreciating traits they may have that your man doesn't.  That's a natural occurence and still doesn't give that new person the unique package that your man has - whatever it was that brought you to him in the first place.  Same goes for you with him.  No, my man won't be perfect and there will probably be things about him that I'm not crazy about.  But he'll be perfect for me and that's not something anyone else can duplicate.  Him (or you) knowing that is what makes all the difference...
