[video] Spike Lee: Post-Racial America is “Bullshit”

Spike speaks on race in America, social media’s role in uprisings across the world, and his thoughts on police brutality.

Director Spike Lee on race in America: “If you’re African-American in this country, you know what the deal is.” Fusion’s Jorge Ramos spoke to Lee about his latest documentary “I Can’t Breathe,” problems with the NYPD, race in America and the impact of social media on his projects.What do you think?

The last point he makes he is actually right. If a man were to do this with a 16-year-old he would be in hot water and called all types of perverts. Welcome to the double standard in America. Now where he is totally off-base is where he says he was not interested in females when he was a teenager. What woman would want a 16-year-old Bill O’Reilly anway? He always talks junk about other people but he fails to bring up his own personal fail when he was sexually harassing a woman through explicit phone calls and threw her some major cash to keep it quiet. This one goes to Bieber.

I guess these students are also pissed about the FameKills tour being canned too.

Christian Newswire: A San Francisco group billing itself as “the best in LGBT media” is claiming hundreds of public schools in California have signed up to show its films and use accompanying discussion materials. One film features a boy “coming out” by wearing his mother’s bikini. Another film incorporates Native American spiritualism to cast LGBT (lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender) persons as “two-spirit” people.

Young Jeezy Responds Back TO Bill O’Reilly On This New Remix Version Track Called “My President Black” (Feat. Jay-Z) “Bill O’Reilly Eat A Dick. You Really Being A Racist & Tell Dennis Miller The Show Suck”

Vodpod videos no longer available. I seen this earlier in the week but because of WordPress complications I’ve been refraining from posting audio, but I can’t deny this one. I like the way this battle is shaping on because I think they picked the wrong one when they signaled out Jeezy and Jay-Z.  Jeezy got that rebellious spirit in him that will make him spit the real, so now you have the full transition of a TRAPPER RAPPER into one who has been dealing with street politics in a unique way since THE RECESSION dropped.  Who would have ever thought it would be Jeezy that would be the one with the potential of crippling Bill O’Reilly and his crew of cronies.

Young Jeezy Will Not Appear On ‘The O’Reilly Factor,’ Rep Confirms

Young Jeezy was on the receiving end of barbs from Bill O’Reilly and guest Dennis Miller on “The O’Reilly Factor” last week: The pair took the Snowman and Jay-Z to task for their lyrics on “My President,” characterizing their rhymes as hateful toward America.

youngjeezyOn the show, O’Reilly casually challenged Jeezy to appear on “The O’Reilly Factor” to respond. Comedian Dennis Miller, O’Reilly’s guest during the segment, also threw in some barbs at the Atlanta rapper, calling him “Young Emphysema.”

Earlier this week, various Web sites reported Jeezy would join the fray by accepting O’Reilly’s challenge. But on Tuesday (January 27), a publicist for the rapper told MTV News that Jeezy’s vague comments about possibly appearing on “The O’Reilly Factor” were taken out of context by media outlets, and he has not formally accepted an invitation to appear on the show.

“O’Reilly Factor” producer Ron Mitchell told MTV News on Tuesday that the offer to Young Jeezy still stands.

Jeezy explained to MTV News during inauguration week that he felt it was necessary for him to write “My President.”

“Music is how you feel,” the MC said about the song. “But if I can say one word, I’ll say ‘necessary.’ I felt it was necessary. I never ever paid attention to any election. [I’m] not really [into] politics or anything like that. It never benefited us. This time around, it’s not a black-or-white thing – you got somebody in there for us that’s well-spoken and gonna handle their business. I just wanted to do my part and let them know we need change, we need help, it’s rough out there.”

Also during the inaugural festivities, Jay-Z premiered his verse for the song, which has been added to the remix of “My President.”

The Anatomy of a Protest: Nas vs Fox News

As I approached the Fox News headquarters across the street from Rockerfeller Plaza I encountered a congregation of upwards to 60-80 bodies who had amassed to join MoveOn.org, ColorofChange.org and Nas as they presented the network with a petition signed by over 600,000 people (which was rejected by Fox by the way). The topic of protest was the unfair and unbalanced coverage of Sen. Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama by talking heads such as Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. An hour into the scheduled protest Nas, whose “Untitled” album featuring the scathing Fox rebuttal “Sly Fox” debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts this afternoon, finally arrived and took the podium. As the police became irate with protesters who pushed and shoved to gain position to hear the inaudible MC, Nas had this to say:

He continued his campaign and took his show on the road to The Colbert Report: Continue reading
