Great episode. Great series. Great channel #RollingWithTheChampion #Uninterrupted

Tall Black Guy – “A Franklin Black Excursion” (EP)

Always interesting to see where producers ‘go’ when they let their minds wander. Rhythm Roulette would not have done this justice. Didn’t really even know it was going down like this ’til TBG hit us in the inbox with a note that the cooking was done and the plate was served. Truly an “Excursion”… Go on the trip with him.

Women Of Color Are Trying To Get Out Of The United States (Video)

Damn. Has it come to this? Our sistas go on retreats… women do, PEOPLE do… but the driver for WHY they are going in this piece. They need PEACE! And a SAFE space! A vacay trip is about ‘escape’ but this is an ESCAPE escape from the real harm they suffer.

It comes as no surprise that a time when White supremacist groups have gained increased public notoriety and the President has disparaged African nations as “sh!tholes,” many Black Americans are feeling isolated and unsafe in communities or workplaces.

Many of them are turning those frustrations into acts of self-preservation, and are spending significant money to get outside of the country and away from the people who make them feel that way.

Since the election of President Trump, at least 5 black-owned trip organizations have told VICE News that they’ve experienced upticks in interest from clients eager to get out of the United States.

VICE News followed a group of women to the Women of Color Healing Retreat in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica; a travel experience that emphasized yoga, vegan food, political education seminars, and specifically banned White people.

– VICE News Tonight

And the commentary of Trump, and his supporters. Just watch.
