After sharing this today, which is true about Fox News; it is opinion not fact that they spread; I then came across this article regarding the likely fade out of Fox News & for profit media… Thoughts? 

Article and link below.

“Television is particularly popular among men, people who didn’t go to college, and people over the age of 70, which is a great description of a predictable conservative. (Retired seniors watch more than 50 hours of television a week.) Indeed, this older male group is not only ready-made for cable-television-viewing; it comes prepackaged with extremely conservative views. Over the last three general-election cycles, the 65-and-up group voted for the GOP presidential candidate by an average of 9 percentage points.

This is Fox News’s secret sauce: not production values, personalities, or entertainment, but demography. Old men are the most dependably conservative of any age group, and old men watch the most cable news of any age group. Fox News’ core demographic—and, by the transitive property, its success—is a fortuitous alignment, the perfect captive audience for an interminable documentary of the conservative outlook on American life.”

“You Can Never Get Civil Rights Until You Have Human Rights.”

malcolm x civil rights human rights america.pngHuman rights represent the right to be a human being. Whenever you are respected and recognized as a human being, your civil rights are automatic.” – Malcolm X, See Video

I admit I have been supporting protest and virtually any form of activism demanding the equal treatment for ALL Black men, women and children. I suppose I was hoping Black Lives Matter  and all protests against the treatment would be enough to stop the hateful killings (and beatings, harassment, so forth) …maybe now that these murders have gone mainstream via social media the American Government! But it’s clear that won’t happen. Malcolm X explains what we all already know but need to know and put to use in the video that follows.

Any action is better than none. But I have lost virtually all hope in doing anything so long as the American government is unchanged. By taking this to a world level America will have to pay attention to its crimes; sad that they couldn’t have done it from simple morale; sad that it is even an issue.

I will continue with my research regarding the police, regarding racism, regarding any and all hate crimes being committed towards the Black community. I do this in hopes of exposing the truth, exposing lies and informing people of that which I hope will outrage enough to spark action.

What Malcolm X says in the video is, in almost 2017, still not only true but the only way change will come that I can see. I support the “Buy Black Economy” and I do so when able… But it sadly, as history and this brilliant mind reminds us, isn’t enough to obtain the deserved and rightful equal treatment that has for so long been denied to the Black community.

“We must be regarded as human, our human rights must be respected, before we can be regarded as citizens and our civil rights be respected.”

Kobe Bryant Now a Business Man & Million Dollar Investor & an INSPIRATION. 

I’m a basketball fan but not much for Kobe; however I respect what he is doing!! Inspiring; though he has the money to start where he is, ANY ONE can do it with hard work and passion… Never settle for less, REBUILD Black Wall Street!!! 

Retired basketball sensation Kobe Bryant is doing something commendable with his retirement time and resources. Over the past three years, the star has been building a $100 million venture capital fund. Speaking on Monday, he said investing is one of the things he’s been very passionate about, and that’s why he made a decision to pursue it.”  

The 38-year-old former shooting guard co-founded the fund, Bryant Stibel, in 2013 with the current vice chairman of Dun & Bradstreet, Jeff Stibel.

According to Stibel, they opted to wait so that the initiative could only be unveiled if had been given a strong foundation.

We wanted our body of work, and the entrepreneurs and companies, to stand for themselves,” Stibel told CNNMoney. “We wanted to prove that this was something that had substance and depth.” 

He’s planning to invest in different fields, including technology, media and data companies, especially those that lean towards sports and wellness.

Young Black Male- Victim of Police Abuse- Tony Soto – Please Help! Video

There is a young, Black male activist being held on $900,000.00 bond for NO REASON other than those above facts and the police feel threatened by someone who has his intelligence being involved in fighting for Black Lives Matter and equality. Please, please help him out, help his mother out…. I beg you, if you can’t please spread this around this is an absurd amount of money – he’s had no hearing no trail; just being held. PLEASE… Black Lives Matter, Don’t Turn Him Away, Please

“… We are asking for your help and support in this crowdfund to help him with his bond and to retain competent counsel.  Funded Justice specializes in Crowdfunding for legal matters.  Please donate and share this Crowdfunding. My son has stood on the front lines and helped many people, traveling all over the region assisting in other marches, protests and helping families organize and assert their First Amendment rights to redress their grievenaces and to protest outrageous and unjust actions by law enforcement.

His first son was born in his absence this past Sat June 25, 2016.  He has yet to see or hold his newborn and I am suffering with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.  For the past two years my son has dilgently marched for civil rights and has tried to make sure people know their rights when pulled over in a vehicle. He has been outspoken and vocal in regards to the blatant police brutality and police corruption sweeping this nation.  Now he is being falsely held in a Phila prison.  If this had happened to any one of you, Tony would have already been organizing on your behalf immediately.  We thank you for your support. God Bless.”- Tony Soto’s mother

The sites I’m linking have the videos of the police stalking, harassment and mistreatment are posted in the above link which I posted a couple of days ago. So below are the links I’ve previously made when he was free, in order. Videos of importance are on all, one of them I believe I made a video but there is a link to his facebook video on there….

Each video shows not only the Philly police disrespecting him, but obviously targeting him, especially if you check out more of his videos (again that is linked in one of the posts too, I believe it’s the first). His  previous videos of harassment and fear tactics being used, each link is below.. thank you and please, please help this good man, his mom, those whom care for him and the community needs him, too…

Please,  HELP…

  1. Click Here for my First Post & Tony’s videos – In this post, I also had made a video  on white privilege inspired by Tony, at the end I speak of his case and there is a link in the video description as well as in the following article that just takes you right to his facebook video page.
  2. Click here for the second entry and his videos are located ON the page. This is during an absurd police stop….. Better put, it was during an attempted set up, but as you’ll see, he is smarter than they want and doesn’t fall into their trap. Later, despite his video evidence the cops try to lie and blame it on him…. Despite the videos.
  3. Videos and photos of more police harassing and stalking, shows all of Tony’s actions; none of which are of a man who would do something to deserve this. Not the abuse, and sure as hell not this $900,000.00 bond!!!
  4. And my most recent blog on him.

And please click here to read his mother’s words, and please, help us get this man and activist back out where he belongs. The power belongs to the people…. Let’s exercise that….. Please, PLEASE share this..

Tony Soto, Black Male & Activist, Being Wrongfully Held No Trial; $900,000.00 Bond!

“… falsely arrested in response to an incident which occured on May 18,2016 with an off duty police office. Tony has been held since May 18, in a Phila prison on an outrageously absurb $900,000.00 bond and has not had an hearing yet. The PPD has fraudulently manufactured a case on Tony and has him unlawfully detained on an unreasonable bond to keep him from adaquetly defending himself.”- Tony Soto’s mother 

Yeah you saw the number right; $900,000.00 bond, and her son is not just an educated Black male; he is an activist who has fought for civil rights and equality in Philadelphia, PA, for years. He’s a caring person; please help spread the his story! 

Not only is he an activist, but Tony’s also a friend of mine; I know his personality and the videos I share below his mother’s link and information will prove to you too that Tony knows what he’s talking about; that’s the real reason they’ve locked him up, to silence him. There are no allegations the police can make to justify holding him without trial on $900,000.00 bail! 

He knows how to respect police and wouldn’t do anything that he knows would put him away; this is an attempt to silence him; please don’t let that happen!!!  And let me add, as you’ll see if you watch his videos, that respect he gives is met with harassment and intimidation, numerous times by the Philadelphia police.

https://www.fundedjustice.com/en/projects/31898-Support-Tony-Soto-Against-False-Arrest-By-PPD/embed

“The cops responded on local news claiming the allegations made was done with the intent to and I quote,“bait the police.”… No, I’m not joking.”- Police use blame “game” when the media questions them over  Tony’s video recorded harassment. 

 He has many of these on video; in fact I wrote a couple of posts with those videos regarding the police harassment he was going through. Please, please help anyway you can… Even if it’s simply share. Remember, Black Lives Matter; that includes the lives of those living and being wronged; especially for someone who has spent so much of his time helping others. 

The first post is here and includes videos an insane and uncalled for traffic stop which he recorded. It is vivid evidence of the Philly cops targeting him with harassment and intimidation tactics. Being a a young, educated Black man…who knows his rights and stood up for the rights of others as well came with a price; after a set up. 900,000.00 bail! . <!–  The following two quotes are from Tony’s videos in the post I mentioned above, first, a small piece from his convo with a rude cop:

We’re going to stop all this nonsense with you guys down here- just stopping people and doing whatever you want so that’s done, those days are over.”-Tony

“I’m glad you think you’re changing the world.” -Cop
“No sir actually, let me explain something to you, I’m not changing the world okay, I’m professional, and we’re going to change it one person at a time.”-Tony

And as he later sat in his car waiting for the cops to come back over and say he could leave. He had been stopped by the cops and harassed, treated with no respect or kindness, and the police end up sitting in the squad car until, for whatever reason, they decided to simply drive off… Before this though, as he awaits the officers return:

“I’m going to set my phone back down before I get shot and they say that I’m reaching for something.” – Tony says to the camera sitting, waiting and wondering why the cop suddenly -and strangely- decided to move to the other side of the street without speaking to him again during his ‘traffic stop’. 

The cops ended up trying to make him into a villain on local media which Tony made a video response about:

 Fox29 News After Story Aired; very interesting. The cops responded on local news claiming the allegations made was done with the intent to and I quote,“bait the police.”… No, I’m not joking.

As he says in this video,[paraphrased] the last time he checked, it was the police officers who stopped him, not the other way around.
He goes on to say he isn’t anti-police; however all forms of abuse the police participate in or commit is BLATANTLY WRONG.

As he states regarding the illegal traffic stop and harassment by police, the video offers a prime example of one of the many ways in which police get away with behaving in any manner they desire.

The second post can be found by clicking here.  Again, he is harassed by police on video,  and also a lot of information from Tony himself.

Finally, almost a year ago, in this post  you can check out the last time I wrote about Tony’s situation; and I made a video on his behalf as well as to explain the sickness in white privilege, for this wouldn’t be happening to a white male. Not like this. 

Please donate, share and help get his story noticed. He’s been fighting for ALL targets of police killings and racism; now it’s our turn; please do whatever you can… Thank you…
