Marie Holmes and her winning lottery ticket

Last February when single mom, Marie Holmes won $88 million dollars in the Powerball Lottery. It was a triumph for all black folks and an even a greater victory for single black women all over the world. It was portrayed in the media that Marie was raising her four children alone and one was a special needs child. She said that she would spend her winnings on a new home, her children, and a charity. Well, she must have made a contribution to the “Desperate Women In Need of Men” charity. That’s the only explanation I can come up with as to why Marie Holmes would spend $9 million of her lottery winnings to get her boyfriend/fiancee out of jail.
