‘The Therapist’ Talks To Joey Bada$$ (Video)

All is love…

But sometimes we are just too far down to feel its warmth. We need help sometimes. Sometimes, we need help to learn that we need help in that way.

I like the way the doc inches into the depths with Joey at the start. Joey being allowed to talk. Talking to somebody, esp. a professional, is a good thing… that can bring us back to better things (like full wellness and good mental/emotional health).

Joey Bada$$ grapples with the suicide of friend and fellow rapper, Capital Steez.

Gangsters In Paradise (Documentary)

My dad was God… at least to me…and since I could not fight God, I’d fight everybody else.

Damn. That is the definition of f’d up AND a damn near perfect description of the condition that sets a gangster on his path in life. Wow. Another in-depth hard-hitting VICE doc, covering content you just won’t get anywhere else.

In Gangsters in Paradise – Deportees of Tonga, VICE embeds with four Tongan nationals who have been sent back to the tiny island nation where they were born after serving prison time in New Zealand and the United States. Former gang members, they often struggle to reconnect with the culture, the language, and the people.
– VICE

Interesting when you realize that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is half Tongan and half Black. He could have been all f’d up in the game. He still probably would feel some pain watching this. As should we all.

The ‘Blaxit’ Movement: Young Black Conservatives Believe President Trump Can Make America Great For Them (Video)

Yeeeesh!

Okay, get past that feeling because this is actually worth watching; at least to get another point of view you might not have considered. It’s like what Killer Mike was saying on his Netflix show (“Trigger Warning”): You need to actually engage people with views that differ from your own.

In October of 2018, hundreds of young conservatives of color met up in Washington, DC, for the first ever Young Black Leadership Summit: a four-day conference that featured speeches from conservative actress Stacey Dash and firebrand Candace Owens, a trip to the White House to hear Trump speak, and a rare chance for young, black Republicans to get together and network IRL.

VICE’s Lee Adams went to the summit to talk firsthand with young, Black conservatives about what drew them to the Republican party, along with what kind of backlash they’ve faced from the black community for going public with their political views. To find out more about the movement, he also tagged along with Antonia Okafor—an outspoken Second Amendment activist—on a hunting trip in northwestern Iowa with Steve King, a House Rep who’s been widely criticized for his racist comments. Lastly, he met up with Shekinah Geist, a Black Republican and budding social media influencer, and sat in on a conversation between her and a group of peers from the local Black student union who challenged her on her support for President Trump.

– VICE

All this said and shown… this is NOT an endorsement of the GOP or President Trump or the views shared. But it IS an earnest sharing of different point of view (the VICE video and this blog post on it).

Latinos Converting To Islam (Documentary)

What so-called religions that promise ‘salvation’ can truly forget is the SAVING. What the dude says in here about why he converted to Islam, how it truly SAVED him… He was not speaking of a ‘magical’ event or a sudden ‘newness’ feeling (set to orchestral music or something). Rather, he was speaking of Islam SAVING his life in an UNDERSTANDABLE way that brought joy to his soul and meaning to his life. ‘Survival mode’ to a ‘revival’ by way of the Quran.

Latinos are one of the fastest growing groups within Islam in America. VICE’s Lee Adams travels to Houston Texas, the home of America’s first Islam in Spanish center, to investigate what’s behind this phenomenon and how America’s current political climate might be related.

Another great VICE documentary.

Federal Workers Speak On How it Feels to Be Shut Down (Video)

Backs up against the wall, employed but not gainfully, this clip is representative of the employees and contractors NOT getting paid while President Trump and Congress are at a standstill over the Wall.

Okay. Actually, most everyone else in the situation (other Repubs and Dems in the Senate) are in agreement… at least to the extent we could reopen the government coffers and get these folks paychecks flowing again in the short-term. Now. It. Is. Just. Trump. President Trump. Alone. Standing on his Wall (um… slats… um, whatever)!

All the while. These people’s lives are in limbo. VICE reports (in the short above).

Pee Wee Kirkland Left The Court To Become A Kingpin In The Drug Game (Video)

Surely you know something about the dual life lived by hood icon Pee Wee Kirkland. At least you’ve heard that rap line “Legend in two games [like] Pee Wee Kirkland.” Basketball was one game. VICE will give us the real deep scoop on Pee Wee’s second.

Richard “Pee Wee” Kirkland began playing basketball in the streets of Harlem when he was 9-years-old. By age 13, he split his time between playing ball and committing robberies to help finance a growing drug empire.

In college, Kirkland was the 1968 MVP for Norfolk State, turning down an offer from UCLA to play alongside Kareem Abdul Jabaar. Kirkland was then drafted by the Chicago Bulls but turned down their offer when he realized he could make more money in the drug game than the basketball game. With law enforcement on his tail, Kirkland found himself behind bars twice between 1971 and 1988. From there, he made a change, becoming a motivational speaker and inspiring young, inner-city athletes to take a different path out than he did.

Presented by Ryot.

Dick Cheney Had A ‘Different Understanding’ Of The Vice Presidency (Trailer)

Is somebody risking too much for real behind this? I mean… we know Cheney was the Veep to joke on… but you might find more ‘realness’ in this real funny trailer for “Vice.” Maybe a bit too real for the ‘shadow president.’ Check it.

(Don’t @ me haters, and Secret Service don’t come at me. Just a blogger blogging on a blog over here.)

Who Killed Tupac & Biggie? LAPD Detective Greg Kading Names Names! (Video)

Just in case the decades of foot-dragging and the much-hyped USA Network miniseries did not quench your thirst for knowledge on the Notorious B.I.G. & Tupac murders, VICE gets the scoop in ’10 Questions’ posed to the lead investigator. And he answers them directly!

Ever wondered who committed the murders of Tupac and Biggie? Greg Kading, the LAPD Detective who investigated the murders, claims he has the answers. With a theory that allegedly implicates Sean Combs and Suge Knight, Kading claims to have solved two of the most famous murders in US history.
– VICE

A couple of things to keep in mind: (1) Kading’s investigation was directed toward clearing any blame regarding the LAPD’s role/coverup with respect to the murders of ‘Pac & BIG… (2) both the people Kading directly accused are dead #JustSaying

Miami’s Luxury Car Hustle: Hey Player, You Can Rent ‘That Life’ For A While (Documentary)

Some say, “Fake it ’til you make it.” Then others may ask, “Why not put that money into actually making it?” Well, the guys running the luxury rental biz seem to actually be making it (money) from those who rent fancy cars to ‘fake it.’

“The car business, in general, is a tough business. The car rental business, even more so. Anybody who finds out they can make money and drive a Ferrari, I mean, they’re diving in head first,” says Matt Cruz, owner of MVP Exotic Rentals, a legitimate luxury car rental business based in Miami. But when everybody wants to be a celebrity, how to you tell the difference between faking it and making it? The game is finesse, and with the allure of getting behind the wheel of the world’s most expensive cars, who wouldn’t want to play? In a world where likes and fame can be bought and the filtered facade of Instagram reigns supreme, VICE meets some of the legit — and the not-so-legit — players that cater luxury car rentals to the biggest rappers, athletes, and celebrities of the moment.

The Miami Style Gods Speak On The Rush And The Danger Of Doing Street Grafitti In Miami (Documentary)

Wow. Right from the start, the dude calls his graf ‘vandalism’… NOT art. But still seems driven about it. Real out there in the streets about the spray game; folks can get shot for real (or worse). VICE investigates.

All across Miami, you’ll find countless tags done by MSG—the Miami Style Gods, a graffiti crew that’s been around since the early 90s. And two decades later, they’re still bombing as many walls, highway signs, bridges, billboards, and abandoned buildings as they can find.

VICE met up with members of the crew—who believe their trade is vandalism, not art—to find out why they’re so dedicated to a trade that makes no money and is often dangerous, from altercations with the cops to dangling over busy highways.

– VICE SPECIALS

And this is about more than graf, though that is life to these guys; it’s life in the streets.

Many Black Kids Cannot Swim. Really. And Here Is Why… (Video)

Wow, that’s a real thing. All my family can swim. My Dad learned as a kid, self-taught, playing in the ‘crick’ (creek) down the road. My baby brother was swimming by the time he could walk. So, I just kinda dismissed such talk as broad generalization; no real fact-finding driving the claim. Well…

In 2014, the CDC found that an 11-year-old Black child is 10 times more likely to drown than a White child the same age. The notion that “Black people can’t swim” may sound like a stereotype, but it’s a real disparity and it’s rooted in a history of discriminatory access to swimming pools.

Again, wow. And damn.

Dear #BurnYourNikes Movement, Nike Doesn’t Mind At All (Video)

If you feel like wasting some keystrokes, comment on the next vid you see posted by a ‘Nike burner’ that Nike doesn’t give not one aglet about #BurnYourNikes

(Oh, and an ‘aglet’ is that sheath or tip at the end of your shoelace. You knew that? Okay cool.)

See, this whole ‘we stand by Kaep‘ stance Nike is putting forth is still a BUSINESS move at its core. We know that, right? Right?? It’s a business move that folks (read: the majority of people that Nike wants to buy its products) who are cool with #TakeAKnee will vote in favor of… with their purchasing power.

This is why Nike doesn’t care if you set your shoes on fire.
– VICE News Tonight

Just like choosing to ‘vote’ for (buy from) Burger King because you like your burgers flame-broiled, or your way, or whatever the other fast food joints ain’t doing. Or vice versa.

And for folks who decide to NOT buy from them anymore, Nike is wagering (i.e. taking a strategic business risk) there will be few enough of them to not matter (to its BUSINESS). Buuuut… all this could make for some cool counter-hashtaggery to make the new ‘Nike haters’ hot though…

#KaepHatersDontMatter

Nah…

#GoOnAndBurnYourGear #NikeAlreadyHasYourMoney

Better…

#KaepGotPaid #NikeUsedMoneyYouPaid #MoneyYouJustSetAblaze

BARZ!
