Campaign 2020: Watch A Quick Recap Of The Biden Vs. Sanders Debate (Video)

Okay, so now that we have boiled down the HUGE field of Democratic Presidential candidates to two, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, the choice is an actual ‘choice’… Now, watch the “boiled down” version of Biden and Sanders’s first one-on-one debate. And get ready to vote if you have not already made your voice heard in this race.

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) debated each other for the first time on March 15. Here’s what you missed.
– Washington Post

Of course, there was more to it than this. This is a gist. If you want to dig for real, I am sure you can watch the whole thing on-demand a la your local cable provider.

Politics: Now The Choice Is Clear For Democrats. It’s Bernie Sanders Or Joe Biden (Video)

Okay, so now we have thinned the herd of Democratic opposition for President Trump’s position in 2020. I was clearly on my #FeelTheBern with Senator Sanders last go ’round, but now Papa Joe Biden is in the race for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Presidential race; Barack Obama’s Veep and right hand man. What to do?

I’ll leave the who to you. But the what… you gotta VOTE! My state’s vote is coming up. And I will be voting for one of these guys, so I really have to study up. Up first (above), I am putting my ‘incumbent’ choice, Bernie Sanders. Hit the jump to see Joe Biden’s speech.

How The U.S. Creates Sh*thole Countries (Video)

Already an insult that President Trump refers to places that are home to many people of color as sh*thole countries… But let’s let sister Dr. Cynthia McKinney really go in… and tell us how American foreign policy makes those countries that way.

Basically, the United States was a killing machine… and now… United States does not only kill people, it kills whole countries.

Yeah. And she is just getting started at that point of the video.

Activism: Black History In Two Minutes… Or So. Watch And Learn! (Video)

Never, ever, let anyone tell you what your government will NOT do to its citizens… especially its brown and Black citizens. Americans are pretty okay with believing that ‘other’ countries do bad things to their people; but not us.

Bullsh!t.

The Tuskegee Study smashes that idea to bits. Is this when America was supposed to be ‘great’… where they want to go back to… Because hell no, we won’t go!

But hold on. After this visual enlightens you and fires you up, hit the jump and watch all these Black History shorts. Let’s wrap this month in power #RaiseYourFist #RaiseYourAwareness #PressPlay

Dr. Umar Is Tired Of Black Politicians’ Promises. He Wants To Hear Plans (Video)

The Democratic Party is a White Racist institution… So if you are married to the Democratic Party that means you are a part of their agenda…

And that is how the brother started this interview! Well, Dr. Umar has been this way since back in the school days. Facts. So listen, at least, because the brother has remained consistent. The good doctor has returned…

Politics: Wondering “Who is Richard Spencer?” Talib Kweli Explains (Video)

The father of Alt-Right, the term and the movement. Don’t know what that means? Worry not… well not about not knowing, because Talib Kweli narrates an explanatory clip above on that. But DO worry about this RACIST’S rise to power and his continued influence!

‘Hail Trump!’ — Richard Spencer is the unapologetic White supremacist who you probably watched get punched in the head. He’s also the man who coined the term ‘alt-right’ and planned the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville that resulted in Heather Heyer’s death.

So how did this Pepe-The-Frog meme incarnate become the flag-bearer of American racism?

– NowThis News

And now he doesn’t think President Trump has gone far enough? Wow.

Politics: Jeff Johnson Leads A Power-Packed Panel Of Pundits In Discussing Today’s Black Agenda And Campaign 2020 (Video)

This feels like what a TV station calling itself REVOLT should be doing with its platform, at least in significant part. Very varied viewpoints from and in the Black community are presented and explored here, which is a good thing. Folks (e.g. we and the people who want our votes) need to understand that we are not a monolith, a block, a sector, a checklist item, etc. for the campaign… nor do we necessarily ‘win’ when ‘our candidate’ (whatever that means) wins.

Go get a snack and a beverage, and come back focused. ‘Bout to be some real talk. Necessary talk!

T.I., Killer Mike, Candace Owens, Steven Pargett Of Trap The Vote, Katrina Pierson, & Tamika D Mallory have an open and honest conversation about politics, and the culture we live in today.
– REVOLT TV

Be forewarned: You will get agitated and frustrated. Hang in there. Especially because there is thoughtful, useful insight shared EVERY TIME we get a chance to hear from Killer Mike. Much respect and respek on the name Michael Render!

It’s All About ‘Earth Over Mars’ & The Avengers For Hasan Minhaj On This ‘Deep Cuts’ (Video)

Hmm… Watching an Avengers movie is like eating McDonald’s… you feel everything AND nothing at the same time. Interesting, Hasan. Interesting take.

The latest Deep Cuts combines bonus footage from the most recent tapings that we thought you deserved to see. When asked whether or not we should colonize Mars, Hasan brings the conversation back to Earth and questions why certain billionaires don’t focus on saving our planet before looking to another one. He also has an important debate with Phoebe Robinson about Toaster Strudels versus Pop-Tarts, reveals the most interesting person he’s interviewed, and addresses one of his character flaws.

Activism: James Earl Jones Reads Frederick Douglass’ “What To The Slave Is 4th Of July?” Speech (Video)

Yeah. Here are some real ‘fireworks’ for the 4th for y’all. The historic, convicting words of Abolitionist Frederick Douglass; brought to life by living legend James Earl Jones.

In a Fourth of July holiday special, we hear the words of Frederick Douglass. Born into slavery around 1818, Douglass became a key leader of the abolitionist movement. On July 5, 1852, in Rochester, New York, he gave one of his most famous speeches, “The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro.” He was addressing the Rochester Ladies Antislavery Society. This is actor James Earl Jones reading the speech during a performance of historian Howard Zinn’s acclaimed book, “Voices of a People’s History of the United States.” He was introduced by Zinn.

Jon Stewart & First Responders Testify Before Congress To Fight For Continued Funding (Video)

Dear famous people: THIS is how you use your platform! Stand up for those who stood tall and ran toward the danger we tried to escape… for ours and our families’ & friends’ sake.

Jon Stewart was not the only one to get a standing ovation in a House hearing room today. 9/11 first responder Luis Alvarez got a standing ovation too, the day before his 69th chemotherapy treatment.

Grab a tissue. You’ll cry. And the tears (of pride, sorrow, righteous anger) will be heated.

Politics: Hasan Minhaj On Malaysia, 1MDB, And Goldman Sachs (Video)

That’s right Chicago. Your parking meters are Muslim.

WTF??? Oh, it’s Hasan doing another Patriot Act ep. Haha!

So, it’s time to laugh, laugh some more and learn something from stand-up ‘Professor’ Minhaj!

On this segment from the latest episode of Patriot Act, Hasan examines the 1MDB sovereign wealth fund scandal in Malaysia, in which former prime minister Najib Razak has been accused of funneling millions of dollars from the country into his personal bank accounts. Traditionally used as a means of economic diversification by countries reliant on a single industry, sovereign wealth funds have come under scrutiny as financial organizations like Goldman Sachs and corrupt politicians have taken advantage of these large, mostly unregulated pools of money for their own gain. While Goldman Sachs continues to profit off of sovereign wealth funds in other countries, the bank is currently being investigated for its role in the 1MDB scandal, which could have lasting implications on the world of finance.
– Patriot Act

Where politics, pools of money, and worldwide finance intersect… There will be global scandal and damage. How can we laugh about stuff like that? Dunno, but Hasan always has a way doing it every time, doesn’t he?

Interesting. Commentary on why the economy is doing well, not from the White House, or from some industry think tank, rather from a segment on The DL Hughley Show. Lean in for a few minutes of on-point real talk! Broken down in layman’s terms.

Politics: Hasan Minhaj On Cricket Diplomacy And Cricket Corruption (Video)

Watching a ‘live-action Brooks Brothers catalog’ with your dad on the couch for five days straight. Haha! Okay, I feel for you and your torture memories, Hasan. But why is cricket an actual big thing the world over? We need to know. Show us, man, and welcome back!

On the latest episode of Patriot Act, Hasan takes a look at the history and politics behind one of the biggest sports in the world: cricket. With billions of fans scheduled to tune into the upcoming 2019 Cricket World Cup, Hasan examines how the game has evolved from a sport of British colonizers into a tool of diplomacy and a force for good despite recent scandals and corruption. Hasan also explores how cricket has especially grown in India due in part to the creation of the IPL, a flashy professional cricket league founded by the infamous Lalit Modi, and how that expansion has unfortunately come at the expense of the growth of cricket in other countries.

Beating the colonizers at their own game. I get that. Like James Naismith and today’s minority dominance of basketball.
