Activism: Matthew Charles Does Decades Of Fed Time, Turns His Life Around, And Now Has Return To Prison. Meanwhile… (Video)

Damn. America’s justice system is broken. You may not need more proof, but maybe someone around you does. Press play and walk away. Get coffee or something. But stay mad, stay woke, stay engaged and stay ready.

Black Man Who Spent 20 Years In Jail & Turned His Life Around, Is Being Sent Back. Meanwhile A Child Rapist Get’s House Arrest. This Really Is America.

Speak English For What? ‘Real’ Americans Should Be Speaking Natives’ Tongues, Or Spanish (Video)

So the cops can harass you for NOT bothering anyone, just because you (NOT speaking to them) are conversing in a language they do not understand? I’m asking… And above, someone answers.

Agree or agree to disagree, no motherf**king body can motherf**king tell you what language you must use to speak to each other; or use speaking an ‘unacceptable’ language to profile you. Plus, English does not have a strong an argument for being the ‘rightful’ language of ‘real’ Americans. Watch.

I gotta admit: I am down with ‘The Breakdown’ that Francis Maxwell delivers above and how he delivered that sh!t. Straight RAW! And I think I heard some ‘French’ in his rant, too (hahaa).

Jalen Rose Vs. Jay Williams Debating Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James (Video)

C’mon! Are you kidding me?? It’s not even close! We know who’d win, head-up, one-on-one, right? Yeah, you already know… Alright then. That’s all I gotta say.

You cannot tell me in a one-on-one game though that LeBron James wouldn’t dominate Mike.
Jay Williams

Okay. And that’s all that Jay is gonna say. Hahaaa!

TYT’s Francis Maxwell Speaks On The NFL’s Disgraceful Ban On Kneeling (Video)

… regardless, let’s just cut through the sh!te, shall we?

We got a whiff and posted on the NFL’s kneel ban days ago. Now NFL Commish Roger Goodell puts it all the way out there… No longer speculation, the ban is out there. Watch TYT’s Francis Maxwell speak on it, and make a helluva good point: The League is FULL of Black players whose interests are repped by this LAWFUL, PEACEFUL protest. Goodell and the NFL owner cadre are essentially telling them to bow down, by insisting that they either stand for the anthem or stay off the playing field until they learn to ‘act right’… or get hit in the pockets.

NFL Bans Kneeling. So Much For Free Speech, Right?

Keeping some pay to keep the ‘workers’ in check. Talk about a payCHECK… Wowwwww!

Yep, the co-host on ‘Get Up’ got it right – straight shooting on the NFL’s issue-dodging stance on kneeling during the National Anthem. ‘Nuff said by me. I’ll let her speak on it #EffTheNFL #StillStandingWithKaep #TakeAKnee

President Trump More Compassioniate Toward Pundit Tomi Lahren Than To People Victimized By School Shootings (Video)

Y’all ever check out a video or three from uber-Conservative cute-but-ugly-talking ‘girl gone viral’ Tomi Lahren. Well, she’s usually the one calling out the wrongdoers and the waah-waah crybabies on The Left (Progressives, Liberals, Democrats, folks who disagree with her views). But here she is in the ‘victim’ role… again. Charlemagne Tha God might have found cause to make a case ‘for’ her a while back, but check out The Breakdown that Hasan Piker puts on her… and The President.

Our wetboy president Donald J. Trump showed more compassion to Tomi Lahren getting water thrown at her than victims of school shootings and the waffle house hero. Hasan Piker breaks down why Conservatives who spread hate speech whine about oppression at the first sight of backlash.
– The Breakdown

Oh, and Piker points and fires off on some other hot topics, like the NFL’s stand against #TakeAKnee (we posted on here).

Did You See The Lava Flow From Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano Into The Pacific Ocean? (Video)

Surely you have heard about it. Maybe you’ve even seen footage of the hot lava creeping down hillsides or crossing roads. Looks like something other than what it is… a relatively slow-moving mass of molten rock, melting or burning everything it touches. That said, the news footage I have seen shows folks treating the lava like it’s some novel plaything that is just kinda hot.

Nah, son. This stuff is cooking asphalt and ocean and dissolving steel like it’s nothing. See the footage? Good. That’s about as close as you ever need to get to the lava. Just saying.

The Police Don’t REALLY Treat Black People Differently. Do They? (Video)

You know the answer. But to have [even more] solid evidence of such, laid out in the form of a solid argument… Sure the affirmation is depressing, but at least you know you are signifying (not just ‘theorizing’). So, here you go. Share and discuss.

Santa Fe School Shooter is armed, yet apprehended peacefully, so why can’t police exercise that self-control with Black people?

Tiny Houses Made Out Of Concrete Water Pipes (Video)

Yeah, the big bad wolf better not even try it. Can’t blow down a house of bricks? Try solid concrete homie!

These houses are made out of concrete water pipes.
– In The Know Innovation

I dig tiny homes and Earthships. Especially this one that one could conceivably dig and put underground. Not 100% sure how water/sewer and heating/cooling would work. And residents will likely rethink that 4th meal burrito… blowing up the toilet in that teeny tubular home has gotta mean the funk will linger a LONG time!

Indonesian Teenagers Making Fast Cash In Illegal Motorcycle Races (Documentary)

This is insane! Man, things youth do, thinking they are immortal and invincible. Plus, there’s the money. Definitely a risk vs. reward thing to do; these high-speed illegal street races. Faster & furiouser. Watch!

Motorcycles rule the streets of Indonesia. By day, the bikes zip through Jakarta, ferrying residents to and from work—but by night, the roads give way to the underground world of illegal street racing. Kids as young as 12 compete in the high-speed sprints, where riders can make a small fortune off a single race. The rewards are great, but the risks are just as high: Flying down roads at breakneck speeds, one, small mistake can cost a “speed jockey” their life.

On this episode of ‘VICE INTL,’ VICE Indonesia went inside Jakarta’s dangerous, high-stakes street racing scene. We met up with a 16-year-old rising star to hear how he got involved, talked to the cops cracking down on illegal drag racing, and checked out a sprint ourselves—watching as two teenagers faced off for more cash than most Indonesians make in a month.

– VICE

Started watching this with that BDP joint “Love’s Gonna Getcha” in mind… kids like: “I make about a G a week. F**K school!”

Released From Prison, But Still Not Free: NBC Nightly News Covers Meek Mill’s Legal Ups & Downs (Video)

Damn. Caught the case at 19 and even after 30, freed on bail, he does not feel free. The NBC News organization is all over this Meek Mill legal entrapment story… good for them and for us viewers.

Rapper Meek Mill was granted bail by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Tuesday after being sentenced in November to two to four years in prison for a probation violation — a decision criticized by his supporters as too severe. In an exclusive interview with Lester Holt, Mill says he recognizes this as “a very important moment.”
– NBC News

Got Mill around here looking like an activist, speaking on the evils of the American Justice system. A positive outcome. Maybe some reforms will come of it. At least some very rich and powerful figures are attached and talking now.

Meek Mill Speaks On Being Taken Down By ‘Suspect’ Cops & A ‘Zealous’ Judge (Video)

Hmm… surprised and glad a major news outlet picked up on this story. Mill got strung along by the system and caught up in the snare string; the real trap. If you are not up on things regarding Meek Mills’ mistreatment by the law dogs and the judiciary, watch and study up.

Rapper Meek Mill was jailed for violating probation in a case that has received national attention and calls for criminal justice reform. He speaks out to Lester Holt in an NBC News exclusive.

“The Camels Of Arabia” Tells A Story Of Traditions, Pride, And Million Dollar Prizes (Documentary)

VICE continues to bring us insight by focusing on what’s important. Want to learn about a people, focus on what is important… to them. “The Camels of Arabia” are VERY important. Watch and learn…

Camels are the Clydesdales of Saudi Arabia, venerated for their good looks, grace, and speed. Even as the country rapidly modernizes, the animals remain a central part of Saudi culture, and a lucrative one—with prized camels selling for more than $1 million.

VICE trekked to Al-Dahna for the King Abdulaziz Camel Festival—the largest of its kind—where titans of business and politics in the Middle East flock each year for a display of the finest camels in Saudi Arabia. Hundreds of participants pit their camels head-to-head in a frenzied race and beauty contest for a chance to win roughly $57 million in prize money, and a chance to meet Saudi Arabia’s king and crown prince.

President Trump Wants To Create A U.S. “Space Force” (Video)

Nope. Not a joke. Yep. The President of the United States said this. Now, I am not one to clown far-out ideas. And this idea the President kind of ‘stumbled upon’ is not really all that far out. Of course, he might have a wee bit more credibility if he still had the mega-billionaire futurist Elon Musk at his side. You know, the guy who is actually putting his own money and rep on deep space travel (e.g. the SpaceX mission to Mars).

But um… they part ways a good while ago (more here).

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.

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