Beyoncé. Then Jay Z. Now Eminem.

Adult R&B and Hip Hop is speaking to our here and now. It is nice to have all of the other music that talks about little to nothing. You can take all of those songs and pile them up.

I will listen to Beyonce’s Lemonade, Jay-Z’s 4:44, and Eminem’s Freestyle that he released on Oct. 10, 2017.

Eminem has always been able to use his voice to tap into your emotions, but this freestyle reached into my heart and expressed everything I ever wanted to say and more.

According to Eminem, a line has been drawn, and it is time for America to stand up.

Eminem, you, sir are right.

Enough is enough.

Jemelle Hill has the right to speak on political things, as I see other people on ESPN saying much more than she did on ESPN. They are black. She is black. What is the difference? Is it her gender? Can a black woman speak about sports?

She is right. After all of Jerry Jones and the NFL Commissioner issued individual statements saying that the NFL players must stand. Now, this NFL will let a person who has beat women, beat kids, raped women, committed robbery, committed assault, driving with drugs, and the list can go on. But, the league draws the line at players protesting for equal protection under the law. It is that pesky 13, 14, and 15th amendment that they are fighting to see fulfilled. Along the way, let’s add more amendments, but the NFL owners want it to end not because the issues are addressed, but it is bad for business and the President wanted it to end.

We cannot ask the NFL players to shoulder this burden alone. They are playing under un-guaranteed contracts. This means if they don’t play, they don’t get a check that week.

Are you willing to give up your means of support for a day or days? Are you willing to risk being fired from something that you have been doing for 20+years of your life?

No. Most of us cannot afford to just not have a check for the cause. We need to respect the fact that many of them cannot afford this either.

Thus, the NFL Players Union needs to either collectively stand or collectively kneel in order to make a statement. Individual players should not be making this statement alone.

All of This is Yours, The Series, Takes Off!

mm

Published

on

Discover the world through the eyes of the children who live in its four corners!

In an era plagued by hatred and hyper-nationalism, an ebullient teacher takes young viewers on a global journey. Along the way, she’ll share the ways that children in vastly different cultures live, learn and experience their world. Costa Rica to Capetown. 13 episodes/13 international destinations. Adventure, learning, hilarity and joy ensue in the global community.

Short Summary

All of This Is Yours provides young audiences with the educational tools they need to begin creating the world they want to live in as global citizens through an episodic journey filled with unique cultural experiences and practical lessons that children can use in their everyday lives. The campaign will raise money for a pilot episode which will take Robin to San Jose Costa Rica where she will meet Amanda, a young girl ready to share her life, and her extended family, with the world.

Robin Hancock has been an avid traveler all her life. While working on a doctorate in education, she got the idea to create a series that blended her love for travel with her passion for early childhood ed. Her life’s work examines the ways that identifying as a global citizen can empower children to walk in the world with confidence, pride in their communities and awareness of their positions as members of a large and vibrant global community.

This is Robin’s passion project and her heart’s desire for the last ten years has been to make this series a reality. Your contribution to the creation of the pilot episode will contribute to a field desperately in need of new and exciting voices. No gift is too small (or too big)!!

The Impact

Nowhere on television is there a travel series that is  1) hosted by a woman of color 2) geared towards educating children and 3) focused on teaching global citizenship. The travel genre remains a deeply segregated space and very few series in the genre are created intentionally for children. This series will counter the negative messages of division and hyper-nationalism that are so prevalent in our society. Our goals for the series are to:

– Provide the (near absent) representation of central characters of color in the travel show genre.

– Provide a travel series that is geared towards young children in a genre that is tailored almost exclusively to adults.

– Create an educational platform for children to learn about the world through observing the experiences of other children like them who live in and negotiate that world as well.

– Create a context where children are learning the primary tenets of Global Citizenship early in life.

– Challenge the messages of separation and division currently being taught through our government, media and social spaces.

Broward Co. Sherriff Department pronounced controversial rapper XXXTentacion dead today in Miami. Witnesses say that he had no pulse at the scene. The shooting happened while he was shopping for motorcycles and things took a turn for the worst. People on the scene reported seeing a black SUV leaving the scene of the crime.

According to the dispatch call the suspects were described as 2 black males wearing hoodies, and the shooter was wearing a red mask.

The car has been confirmed as a black Dodge Journey, with dark tint and black wheels.

2:14 PM PT — Witnesses told cops a Louis Vuitton bag was taken from XXX’s vehicle.

1:57 PM PT — Additional dispatch audio has revealed XXX was transported as a “Level 1” trauma patient … dispatchers described him as comatose. via TMZ

Audio of the 911 dispatch has been obtained by TMZ.

XXXTentacion was experiencing a lot of commercial success even with his troubled past being brought to light. In an interview with Grandmaison’s YouTube podcast, No Jumper, we were given a bit of insight into just how violent his past really was. In this interview, the rapper details how he almost killed his cellmate who he assumed was gay because he was staring at him.

XXXTentacion: So I’m like strangling him, and he’s like leaking, leaking, leaking type shit, and I’m strangling him so he doesn’t scream… Don’t think I’m trying to be cliché or a fucking weirdo when I say this, but I was going crazy. Like, I smear his blood on my face, in my hands, I got it in my nails, bro, I had it all over me.

Grandmaison: War paint. That’s tight.

 

A year ago he tweeted this.

“Next time make sure you kill me so I can’t talk shit.”

 

 

 

 

WARNING GRAPHIC VIDEO AHEAD!

 

 

 

Will you be mourning his death?
