Politics: Did Hillary Clinton Secretly Take Over The Democratic Party For Campaign 2016? (Video)

Hollllly sheeeeit! #FeelTheBern for real. Looks like there is solid testimony (in former Democratic National Chair Donna Brazile’s upcoming book) that the Democrats that backed Bernie, that threw in with Hillary to oppose the Trump campaign, have been had, got took, been bamboozled and BURNED… damn!

And the cajones of anyone who would seek to suppress the truth… chastising Donna Brazile and others who would call out the Clinton’s co-opting of the DNC as “legal but amoral” for tearing down the party… come on! Slavery was legal at one time, too. People can forgive almost anything, once we know the full truth, like former Senator Nina Turner says above.

Watch the clip.

We’re Seeing More And Bigger Black Movies, But Are African Americans Making Any Real Gains In Hollywood? (Video)

Hmmm… did anyone see the Steve Harvey-esque goof on the announcement for “Moonlight” winning The Oscar? This ‘New Hollywood Diversity Report’ segment on Roland Martin’s show might put that mistake in a different light. It’s kind of like there’s less hate for Black people in Hollywood… Now they just aren’t really paying us much mind. No shots, no hate, just saying.

The fourth annual Hollywood Diversity Report is out, and while there has been some improvement, Black people are still trailing behind their white counterparts in many ways.

Rant, Rebuttal, Reconciliation: Wendy Williams Apologizes And Invites Roland Martin To Speak On HBCUs & The NAACP (Video)

Two media power-movers get together and ensure the ooh’s and ah’s are not the last thing we get out of the swirl of fiery commentary that came from Wendy Williams’ rant – then Roland’s rebuttal – on HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) and National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. See all that build up after the jump. What’s most important though… is that they got together on Wendy’s couch, reached an accord, and ensured knowledge was shared! Good use of a powerful platform.

“News One Now” host Roland S. Martin sits down with Wendy to talk about her remarks about Historically Black Colleges and the NAACP. Then, Roland weighs in on race in America, police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement. Plus, Roland weighs in on how to talk to our kids about these issues.

Hmmm… don’t know if Kid ‘N Play could truly be considered ‘Unsung’… seeing as how they had hit records (plural), a string of movies, that hook-the-legs-spin-around-shoe-tap dance thing… but they are on an episode.

Unsung: DeBarge (Video)


Before Michael Jackson split from his band of brothers, and for a while after, the music world (and the world at large) was constantly asking ‘Who would be the next Jackson 5?’ The answer at one time would have definitely been DeBarge. But right when they were right there as a family, something… a lot of things, actually… went terribly wrong. The large family from Grand Rapids (Michigan, USA) had it all in the 1980s – the looks, the sound, the fans, growing fame worldwide. But then things took a sadly familiar downturn that comes with having it all (way past enough). Industry and social pressures, addictions and more… caused them to lose the most important thing – each other. After that – the split – came bigger and harder losses.

A powerful Unsung on DeBarge (full episode above).
