Bill Duke Used To Hate White People (Video)

Bill Duke’s Great Grandparents were slaves, his parents escaped from the racist, oppressive, and DANGEROUS South to the North… with their lives. Bill was subjected to extreme racism himself as a child. Is it a wonder that Bill feels how he feels? Imagine how you feel watching a movie with some racism in it. That part… times 1000!

In this clip, Bill Duke spoke about growing up in Poughkeepsie, NY, during the 1940s and 1950s. His parents moved North to escape the oppression of the Jim Crow South equipped with just a 2nd- and 3rd-grade education, respectively. Bill Duke opened up about some his early experiences dealing with racism and how some Whites defied the racist logic of the time as well. He recalled what it was like being a pre-teen when the Emmitt Till story made national headlines.

But beyond the agony of his youth, there was wisdom, imparted to Bill, and he shares some with us in the clip above. Watch.

All jabs and jokes at the Chris Rock ‘Hair’ Movie aside, Black women’s hair is serious biz – monetary and cultural. This docu-miniseries from Essence mag is focusing on the cultural side. The women are beautiful; Afro-Brizilian beautiful. But some of the stories and struggles they share… not so.

While producing our August global issue in Rio de Janeiro, we interviewed women who are celebrating the “Afro” in Afro-Brazilian. However, their hair journey has been a battle of personal, family and social acceptance because of Brazil’s complicated history with race and identity.

The shottas heard round the world wide web. This “Making A Murderer” (produced by araabMUZIK) is labeled Part 1 there is a Part 2 coming.

Eye Candy: Jai Livia (Behind-The-Scenes, Part 1) [Video]

Almost perfect. Almost. Now, the model Jai Livia (aka 5StarJai) is incredible! And her on the beach… put it this way… I don’t know what the temperature was that day, but the shoot with the hot model looks like it went cool. Watch. It will have you feeling a little… warm.

So why almost you ask? The music. You know, sometimes the cussing just isn’t necessary. It just kinda goes way too hard when Future drops in with the rapping. Just saying.

Anyway, this visual experience is a very nice reminder of warmer days gone by (and coming again); with visions of lovely Jay Livia on some beach, somewhere. So nice.

Also nice: Jay Livia aka @5StarJai on Instagram. Follow her there if you want more.

VICE: Ground Zero Syria (Video)

I don’t have the words. VICE brings us another necessary wake-up call about the horrors of human existence. This time: Syria’s civil war.

In 2012 VICE commissioned photographer and videographer Robert King to document the civil war that has been ravaging Syria for the past two years. Largely based on Aleppo, Robert’s footage of the violent conflict that continues to unfold in the region is perhaps one of the most thorough and brutally honest documents of a war that is increasingly destabilizing the Middle East as it spills over into neighboring Turkey and Lebanon. This full-length version of Ground Zero: Syria combines all six parts of our series to offer a startling glimpse into a chaotic war with no clear end in sight.

The documentary episode “Ground Zero Syria” (Chapter 1) starts with Part 1 embedded above. All the other videos in this 6-part series are embedded after the jump.
