The U.S. Tax Code Favors The Rich… Just Ask This Millionaire (Video)

Damn. Even this rich guy shows us his tax return. Waiting on you, President Trump

This millionaire revealed his tax return to show just how much the GOP tax law favors the rich.
– NowThis Opinions

Yep. The rich get richer, as the poor get shafted. And make no mistake, Eric Schoenberg is playing the game as it is; taking every tax advantage afforded him (because, like President Trump says, he is ‘smart’). But at least he’s honest about what the ‘game’ really is.

Barack Obama Is Campaigning For Your Vote This November. And It Is More Important Than Ever (Video)

Heart jumped when you read the title, right? Well, of course, President Obama is not running for the White House; the November vote having no bearing on the U.S. Presidency at all. However, he does want every American to vote this Fall. And he tells you why it is so important to do so; even though it is not for him, or for a new President… It is for YOU!

If you still don’t think the midterms will affect you, Barack Obama is back to spell out just how important they are.

Especially reaching out to the youngest voters. So many did not show at the polls.

Environmental Injustice And Racism In Uniontown (Documentary)

I’m from Alabama. From a Black community in Alabama. I know, even before the documentary laid this out, this level of injustice is being done to my people (and by proxy, to ME). Been being done. And it still hurts.

Residents of this town have been living under the thumb of environmental injustice and racism #ThinkingInColor

Dammit.

Colin Kaepernick Explains Why He Took A Knee (Video)

People sometimes forget that love is at the root of our resistance.

Yeah. That part.

Watch and listen to Colin Kaepernick explain (again) exactly why he took a knee, what he is taking a stand on, and why other like-minded people should, have, and should continue to challenge racial injustice.

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?
– The Young Turks

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

Chadwick Boseman’s Uplifting Commencement Address To Howard University’s Class Of 2018 (Video)

Better to find PURPOSE than a JOB. PURPOSE drives you to make a mark on HISTORY! A JOB is how you make a living. Preach that truth brother Boseman! Hear (and feel) the words of the Howard University alum giving his address to the most recent graduates from his alma mater, The Hilltop aka #WakandaUniversity

Stop what you’re doing and watch Chadwick Boseman give powerful advice to the class of 2018.

‘Privileged’ White Extremist Protestors Push Back A Reluctant Riot Squad (Video)

Go home and think about this… That’s all I’m asking…

Dude on phone cam was amped, right? But was he right about the White privilege being exemplified.

Think about it. Honestly. Really think: Could Black protesters get away with doing this to a squad of police already in RIOT GEAR??

Still in the wake of #WakandaForever we need more. Got to feed the mania! How about more info? About the uniform that King T’Challa wears, for instance? Watch.

Black Panther’s costume is so much more than just another super suit.

Food/Science: This Seaweed Tastes Just Like Bacon (Video)

Nope. Didn’t stutter. At all. But if this becomes real enough for me to taste it, I just might.

(Stutter. I just might stutter… Because, I’m DEFINITELY gonna taste the baco-weed if and when it hits the market! No ‘might’ about it.)

Technology: Drones Can Provide Disaster Relief (Video)

Weren’t we just talking about how drones can save lives on here? Well, watch how we can go beast mode with that idea in the best way. Great use of drone technology in the search & rescue realm; no longer just ‘search’…now they can bring some form of help.
