Young ‘Yoga Warriors’ Fighting For A Better Future For Themselves (Video)

Providing focus and structure to our youth. Off the streets, out of trouble, onto a directed path of achievement; by getting onto the yoga mats. These kids are learning coping skills, and they are choosing ‘to live by choice, not by chance.’ Great stuff!

These teenagers in Baltimore are practicing yoga, meditation and martial arts to help them cope with emotions and control impulse actions. It’s part of Project Pneuma, which means ‘breath’ in ancient Greek, set up to support young black men in overcoming some of the barriers that might hold them back at school.

Prince – “Baltimore” feat. Eryn Allen Kane (Video)

Respect to Eryn Allen Kane for the gumption. Doing the work featuring on the ‘wake up people!’ jawn by Prince entitled “Baltimore” (we posted earlier on here) AND uploading the visuals for it to the Tube to spread the music and message. Check it out above. All about the people and the problem; it’s a tribute video. So, we don’t get the artists in here as much as a presentation of scenes and facts. But that is more than okay. Feels right.

Prince – “Baltimore” feat. Eryn Allen Kane

“Peace is more than the absence of war.”

The ‘Quiet White Riots’ on the ‘Zo What Morning Show’ (Video)

Mass destruction, cars being flipped over, store fronts having their windows smashed from rocks being thrown.  Couches being burned with street lights being torn down and people brawling in the middle of the street.  This by definition would be described as Thug action, menace behavior destructive to American culture.  Well all of these things have happened after Kentucky college basketball team lost, a pumpkin festival in California, and any major city after a sports team wins a championship.  The funny thing is the media will describe this as mischievious behavior kids being kids.  While the actions that have taken place in Baltimore uprising and previously in Ferguson the same American citizens are labeled as Thugs, Criminals with destructive behavior.  One big difference the first group is white and the second black which makes all the difference dealing with Media.  Zo Williams along with guest Corey Holcomb and Dr Mark Ghoulston break this down in latest Zo What Morning Show!
