“Homeboy” Shows Us That When One Door Opens… (Trailer)

The concept alone… DOPE! A different look at being in the trap… ensnared by a mental health challenge. Kudos to Bryan Christian for finding his way out of that trap with the help of loving fam and friends, and for this “Homeboy” film. Check out the trailer and the pitch at the end.

Keith Olbermann Declares, “The Media Doesn’t Understand What Trump Is Doing” (Video)

Donald Trump’s not pivoting. He’s not changing. He’s just crazy.
– GQ

Interesting points, as usual, by Keith Olbermann… The media is not getting the real story of the Trump Administration out to us, not because they are holding back, but because they do not ‘get’ it. Or at least, they do not ‘get’ how to get the story out to us.

And this is NOT all the fault of Trump’s crazy ways (though Olbermann declares, several times in this clip, that Trump is, in fact, ‘crazy’). It could very well be that, unlike Olbermann’s former field of sportscasting, the mainstream news media has neither the acumen or desire to cover something as unprecedented as what is going on with the level of ‘crazy’ coming out of The White House.

Architects and Engineers: Solving the Mystery of Building 7 – w/ Ed Asner

Hurry up and watch this one before it is “removed as a violation of YouTube’s policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content”… again! Not trying to theorize on any conspiracies afoot, but watch and see if you see ‘scam’ or ‘spam’ or ‘deception.’ No. Quite the opposite. A call for a new investigation; for truth!

Take 15 minutes and watch above. Consider the argument laid out. Perhaps it will lead you to visit AE911Truth.org to investigate the explosive evidence of the Twin Towers and to sign the petition calling for a new World Trade Center 9/11 collapse investigation.

Black Men Trace Their Roots… Of Their Native American Heritage (Video)

You could get in a lot of trouble if you were caught ‘out of place’ or ‘talking out of turn’… Sound familiar, like familia? It should, especially for these gentlemen who have proven that they have ‘Indian in their blood’ (as my elders used to say). But this video is more about similarities in Native American and African American heritages. This is about linkages, bonds, relationships between our peoples. Set aside about a half-hour and get this knowledge!

On the next Another View, a history lesson on the Cheroenhaka-Nottoway Indian Tribe of Southampton County, Virginia – and how a man named Walter Ashby Plecker forever changed the relationship between Native Americans and African Americans in this part of Virginia.

An Anti-Facist Film’s Message We Need To Hear… Today! (Video)

“When that first minority lost out… everybody lost out.”

At the risk of piling on… Michael Moore said it so right in our post on here: If you are not going to say that what went down in Charlottesville was wrong (not on both sides, Mr. President; the NEO-NAZI side), you are pretty much on the wrong side! Turn it around. Don’t support racists, Neo-whatevers… none of that. Do the right thing: Stand with the right. The right side of the aisle, if you like; but at least be on the right side of HISTORY!

And speaking of history, watch the above clip. And by all means… DON’T BE A SUCKER!

Michael Moore Calls A Racist A Racist, All Of Them… And Those Who Will Not Denounce Them (Video)

Anybody who enables, anybody who votes for and supports a racist, is a racist.
Michael Moore

The controversial filmmaker Moore has never had a problem calling it how he sees it. And in keeping with the lifted quote above, Moore is holding those who support the racist ralliers and those of their ilk – whether gathered at the Take ‘Murica Back rally in Charlottesville or not – just as guilty. Because #BlackLivesMatter or #AllLivesMatter or whatever matters to you aside, the venomous speech, vitriolic tone and victimization of those hurt by Neo-Nazi words and a wildly driven car… well, that all happened. And if you are not denouncing that, you are tacitly supporting it.

Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels Declares That Having Mental Health Problems Is Not Shameful (Video)

My brother, BoneBreaker Jones, and I are constantly talking about this. When you have a health problem, you should get help! Mental health is health, and your health is you wealth. Don’t lose your HEALTH! Mental health problems affect everyone, even the mighty King Of Rock, the Devastating Mic Controller, Darryl McDaniels aka DMC of Run DMC.

No shame. If you need help, admit it and get it! Don’t know where/how? Just start talking and asking people you care about. Ask them to help you get to the right professional. But don’t just ignore the situations you are going through like it’s all good #TalkToSomebody
