Okay, so Vlad TV is giving tube time to Jay Morrison to speak on the Tulsa Real Estate Fund. Interesting.

Jay Morrison returns to VladTV to talk about finances within the urban community. His previous video reached over 400k views! In this clip, Morrison elaborates on starting his own IPO, working with the SEC, and starting the Tulsa Real Estate Fund. He says that his mission is focused on the “everyday person.” Watch the interview above.
DJ Vlad

Got more info on Jay and the Fund after the jump. Full disclosure: We are all in and all over this. Time to collectivize and monetize. We’ve been waiting on that promised 40-acres-and-a-mule for way too long fam… way too long!

Event: Hip-Hop Stew Launch Party

Was checking out Techniques Radio on WREK.org last night and they got the word out on this Hop Stew Launch Party. Looks like a good look for the long weekend. Consider chilling and partying with a cause for at least part of this party weekend. More, much more, at HopStew.com but here’s a good blurb on the event…

Hop Stew Launch will be a fun-filled day party with performances from Hip-Hop legend El Da Sensei of The Artifacts, Shabaam Sahdeeq, John Robinson, Beneficence, Stahhr and Phoenyx. It’s going to be a boom bap extravaganza for true Hip-Hop lovers! Our launch will be hosted by Fort Knox! Music will be provided by DJ Dug Boogie and DJ Fudge. Patrons can enjoy an amazing art exhibit. Hop Stew will be donating a portion of all funds raised at launch to the Kidney Foundation. In 2016, our beloved Dug Boogie was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) which there is no cure for. Boogie needs a kidney transplant. So, one can only imagine why The Kidney Foundation is a cause dear to our hearts. The launch is geared towards raising funds and awareness. Hop Stew is Hip-Hop for a cause!

Activism: Real Justice PAC’s Grassroots Effort To Reboot The U.S. Justice System

Mass incarceration… mass victimization inflicted on us by unfair, overreaching law enforcement and an unjust judiciary. You KNOW the story. You (and/or someone you love) has LIVED the story. You’ve cried, as have we; and cried out, “ENOUGH.” But then what? Then ACTION, that’s what!

Real Justice PAC (Political ACTION Committee) is a grassroots political team determined to reimagine and completely overhaul America’s justice system. How? Glad you asked. Real Justice PAC’s Shaun King hit the inbox with much much-needed info, including an ACTION plan.

Our nation has 2,400 elected prosecutors. Not thousands, but millions and millions of cases come through 2,400 officers every single year. And it is these elected prosecutors who decide not just whether or not violent or corrupt cops are prosecuted, but these prosecutors decide how seriously to take those cases and how many staff members to put on them.

These prosecutors are 95% white, 81% male, and only 1% of them are women of color. They are also, as you can imagine, overwhelmingly conservative. Hundreds of them are effectively serving what amounts to unofficial lifetime appointments because they basically run unopposed term after term. Some of these prosecutors have been in office for over 30 years.

And they wouldn’t know a serious challenge if it smacked them in the face.

That’s where we come in.

No position in all of politics is more overdue for a complete reboot than that of America’s 2,400 District Attorneys. It’s ripe for innovation.

What We’re Demanding from District Attorneys:

1. Ensure that everyone is treated equally under the law
2. End the War on Drugs.
3. Promote Transparency and Accountability.
4. Promote Policies that Aid Undocumented Communities.
5. Make Punishment Fair.

Shaun King, Activist/Journalist For Real Justice PAC

Endorsing and supporting candidates for District Attorney offices who will herald the return of Real Justice for the people! Learn more about Shaun King, Real Justice PAC, and how you can help at RealJusticePAC.org

Ice Cube On CNBC Right After Releasing His “Death Certificate” Album (Video)

Ah, so Jerry Heller did make some anti-defamation moves (reaching out to Simon Wiesenthal, Wiesenthal Center) like the character in “Straight Outta Compton” threatened.

Late night call-in talk show, taped right after Ice Cube left NWA and released his solo album called “Death Certificate.”
– X+

Looking at the comments on this vid on the Tube and across the Interwebs, this interview might have been part of the setup… to negatively spin Cube’s views & lyrics. Gotta say, Cube, even as a young man, repped himself and the Culture strong on air; despite the media pressure.

(Reporter/host was kind of thin-skinned near the end, right? Asking. And slipping in that “Man Of Rage” moniker… Really? He never once even raised his voice.)

“Keloid” Is Young, Black, And Super-Powered! Binge Season 1. Here. NOW! (Video)

Holy sheeeit! This “Keloid” series could very well cause Blerdgasms (Blerd = BLack nERD, and if you don’t know ‘gasms’ go Google or ask your parents or some sh!t) across the Interwebs! Have you peeped it out yet? A really compelling take on the coming of age, coming into one’s own, story of a youngster with abilities. Right in keeping with young hero sagas like Gotham already on Fox Television and The Gifted and Cloak & Dagger hitting the tube soon. And see, “Keloid” is already on YouTube, thanks to continued crowdfunding.

In episode 1, Keloid and his mom disagree about the emergence of his special abilities – telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation and the control of electricity. Meanwhile his girlfriend Aisha appears at his door unannounced. Is she right on time, or is it the worst time possible?
– Black TV & Film Collective

CRAZY! Check out Episode 1 above. More (like, the rest of the season!) after the jump, after the funding link below… where you can support if you like.

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
