Brittney Griner's Sentence Upheld


Two months ago WNBA player Brittney Griner was sentenced to nine years in a Russian penal colony after she was convicted on drug smuggling charges [click here if you missed that]. 

Brittney's appeal has been denied...

According to repots a Russian court upheld Brittney Griner’s sentence, clearing the way for her to serve nine years in a penal colony, unless the U.S. government can negotiate a deal for her release.

Russian penal colonies are hell on earth. I really feel bad for her now.

Brittany, keep your head up and stay prayed up. Those Russians are going to.try to break you and your spirit. Practice daily meditations and try to find positivity.

I ain't got nothing else for this topic. I only wish that Brittany had a stronger, more worldly, management (assistant, lawyers, managers, agents etc) team behind her that could've informed her of the pending tensions in that region. And maybe, I don't know, advised her against playing there at that time smh. International tensions are too intense to risk the national security of every American just to bring her home. I hope Brittany stays prayed up.

There was a State Department advisory against Russian travel before she left. Brittany wanted the money and she assumed she could get away with it. Pay attention, people.

That racist ass country with it's short ugly Libra leader, needs a giant earthquake to level half that bitch, no way anyone in their right mind, can cosign all those years for some damn vape pen. Russia has always been racist, I am so tired of these troglodytes on our planet, Mother Nature hurry up and remove them in droves.

This should be a lesson to all people traveling to tyranny countries. Don't go unless you got all of ducks in a row. You need to find out there laws before you go over there doing wrong. Putin can give a darn bout her being a basketball star.

She was stupid and careless. Most countries will punish you for bringing contraband into their country. She thought she was a basketball star and could get away with it. Well Miss Honey, they showed you how they feel about your black lesbian ass. They don't even like the gay agenda in these countries either.

Some places you can’t even wear fatigue or you’ll get locked up. They could’ve gave her a warning but instead, tossed the book at her…as a woman she should’ve definitely looked into being an expat before agreeing to work in Russia. Now this smh. I hope the US do something for her.
I was supposed to work in Saudi Arabia for an airline, but had to pass up the offer after doing research. As a single black woman, I didn’t feel like it was for me. The laws for women were too strict.

I have a feeling she might be used in the upcoming fake and staged 'race war' in America / world(?). I'm quite sure she is fine really.....
