Killer Mike Declares, Loudly, That “Black People Aren’t Ready For Revolution!” (Video)

Killer Mike making the revolutionary rounds. Beating his drum for real revolution… and why we ain’t ready. SELF reliance is key. If revolution tears DOWN the system, but we are reliant ON the system, how will we survive the revolution?

Powerful share by Dr. Boyce Watkins.

Dr. Umar Johnson Responds To His Critics And Doubters (Video)

Trust. Umar Johnson has been Umar Johnson since before he was Dr. Umar Johnson. Consistency and frankness are his hallmarks. ‘People pleasing’ not as much (ha). In this video, he offers an answer to every question/challenge. Whether you or we or anyone likes it or agrees or not… dude is what he is and speaks on it. And while that might be his ‘problem’ to lots of folks, it seems alright to him.

Black Twitter unleashed on activist and philosopher Umar Johnson after his appearance on The Breakfast Club. On Monday, Dr. Umar Johnson sat down for a one-on-one interview with Roland Martin to discuss his controversial Breakfast Club interview, educational credentials, the school he said he was starting and more.
Roland Martin

An engaging clip to watch. Dr. Johnson knows how to stir up a room, right? Wowww.

And after the jump, we hear from a guy who says neither Dr. Johnson nor Mr. Martin really likes him – Dr. Boyce Watkins. Some real talk there. Among other things, Dr. Watkins is down for causes, actions, and views with which he agrees… Not wholly for or against anyone as a person. Respect. His words are strong below, too. Full disclosure.

Damon Dash Speaks On His Cousin Stacey Dash ‘Cooning’ For Cash On Fox News (Video)

That’s her job right now: To evoke emotion on that platform… Either way, she’s my cousin.

What Dame is on: Yes, associate the name Dash with cash, but NOT with ‘coonery’… and NOT with Republicans! Well, say what you want about Damon Dash; but he is going to say what he is going to say and mean it. Family or not.

Above he goes straight ahead on the hot topic of the minute – the craziness his cousin Stacey is spitting on Fox News (especially against BET) for the entertainment of White people. But the balance and majority of the interview is about his business and movie moves on deck. Good watch!

Sandra Bland: How Did An Improper Turn Signal Lead to Her Death? (Video)

Recently the country has had their eyes on Texas yet again for another encounter of cops and the treatment of Black Women.  A couple months back there was the incident of cops in McKinney TX violently attacking young black children and a young sista was slammed to the ground and sat on by a Race Soldier I mean officer of the law.  Now in Waller County, TX the sad story of Sandra Bland who was found dead in her jail cell after she was arrested for a turn signal violation.  The local cops have claimed it is suicide but the Bland family disagrees and thinks their is foul play.  A lot of people across the country thought the same especially since Sandra Bland was an outgoing 28 year old who just landed her dream job at her alma mater Prairie View A&M University.  That doesn’t strike me as someone who wants to kill themselves over a traffic stop.  Dr Boyce Watkins uses his platform to speak on this topic and invites Yvette Carnell founder of ( BreakingBrown.com ) & Benjamin Dixon ( TheBenjaminDixonShow.com ) to join him and go deeper into this incident and what it represents.  The sad reality is this traffic stop led to this woman’s death and the officer who is paid to protect and serve did his part to ignite confrontation.  This is great discussion by free thinkers not controlled by corporate media.  Video of the officer pulling Sandra Bland over after the jump.

The “Periscope” App is a Social Media Game Changer (Video)

Technology moves at a fast pace and the social media world moves even faster.  Remember when My Space was the place to be?  Then it was Facebook and of course now Twitter, Instagram, Snap Chat, Kik and many more exist.  So you are probably thinking so what is the big deal about this new mobile app?  Well put it to you like this when the creators were putting the technology together Twitter got word of it and purchased it for millions before they even released it to the public.  Periscope allows you to have a live broadcast straight from your mobile phone with the ability for people to comment live and to interact.  In the video Dr Boyce Watkins is joined by Michelle Martin of Urban Youth Racing School and she speaks on how people of color should take advantage and really get ahead of the curve using this new technology.  Could you imagine not just shooting video of Police Brutality but having a live stream with people interacting?  Also if there is a social event happening that the local news doesn’t want to cover no need for them you can broadcast it live in real time on your mobile phone!  Like my brother Jayforce likes to say “This Changes Everything” LOL.

Dr. Boyce Watkins speaks on Jay-Z issues with Spotify & YouTube (Video)

There has been a lot of talk recently about music streaming and artists getting what they deserve regarding royalties.  One of the main discussions has been over Jay-Z and his new company Tidal that is marketed as a platform created by the artists for the artists.  There has been some push back from people stating that Tidal is a corporation out here to get rich just like all of the others.  When it comes to Jay-Z recently he has implied that people have no problem supporting the Bill Gates and Steve Jobs but not supporting him because he is black.  Dr. Boyce Watkins speaks on this and questions some of the things Jay-Z speaks on while opening up the discussion on true Black independence.

“Jay-Z can state he has 99 problems but the struggles of the Black Community is not one”Dr Boyce Watkins

Dr. Boyce Watkins: “Bill O’Reilly Caters to American Racism” (Video)

Recently Dr. Boyce Watkins sat down with Vlad TV and he discussed Racism in America.  More importantly he discussed how Bill O’Reilly caters to a certain audience in America.  Dr. Watkins sheds light on the fact that a lot of what O’Reilly spews on the airwaves is what many Americans of the dominant culture feel but are afraid to say.  People like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly make millions off of racist rhetoric and divisive lanuguage.  Well I will let you listen to the Doc break it down much more eloquently.

“Resurrecting Black Wall Street” (Trailer)

The term Black Wall Street” has been thrown around by a lot of rappers from time to time. The reality is the term Black Wall Street speaks to the amazing times of Black Prosperity in Tulsa Oklahoma in the 1920’s. The Greenwood neighborhood located in Tulsa had a number of Black doctors, dentists, bankers, and business owners. They spent money amongst themselves had their own bus companies and were doing better than most of the whites in Tulsa. It all came to a crashing bloody ending when false accusations were made regarding a white woman saying she was attacked by black men from the neighborhood. This led to the first time the US government bombed it’s own people yes you read that correctly the Feds dropped a bomb and destroyed the neighborhood. If you didn’t know the GAP Band is from Tulsa, OK one of their famous songs is “You dropped the Bomb on me” and you thought that was just talking about the ladies.

Well Your Black World Films has a documentary coming out detailing Black Wall Street and how we can make our modern day Black Wall Street. Check out the trailer and CLICK HERE to Pre- order the movie!

Damon Dash Shares How He fights Custody Battle Without Lawyer (Video)

In interviews Damon Dash has been making the headlines for the topics he discusses.  Some agree some don’t but most of the Blogs and Gossip sites love to use his words to stir traffic not really investigating his true talking points.  Well Dr. Boyce Watkins has reached out to Dame Dash allowing him to discuss issues on his platform.  This is not a pair of people you would expect to partner up but I am happy to see it.  In this video Damon Dash explains how he is fighting for custody of his daughters without a lawyer.  He gives some detailed facts on what fathers can and must do to see their children in custody battles.  He is upfront with the fact that the courts will frustrate you but you must have patience and remember that your child is the ultimate prize.  I am not saying that Damon Dash is who you should pattern your legal battles after but if you took the time to watch interviews with him yelling at someone how about watching a video where he is imploring men to fight to see their children legally!
