Tomorrow is the last day to register to vote for the upcoming November elections.  This election is very important for Atlanta, the city will elect a new Mayor, so far current Mayor Kasim Reed hasn’t endorsed any of the candidates but he says he plans to do so.

” No question, I am definitely going to endorse, because I care about the city of Atlanta, so at the appropriate time I am definitely going to make my feelings known” – Kasim Reed

You can find out where the candidates stand tomorrow at a special 11Alive Urban1 Mayoral Forum at Georgia Tech’s Ferst Center at 7 p.m.

Rapper/actor T.I. went into activism mode this past weekend, he joined protesters against Houston’s restaurant after several people accused the restaurant of discrimination.

“We’ll close Houston’s down indefinitely .  When they figure out how to treat us, they can open back up.”-T.I.

The problem seems to come from Houstons policy on refusing to seat large parties and many say the policy is only applied to African American customers.
