DOUBLE STANDARDS, RIGHT?

It was Sunday, February 7, 2016 …. eyes glued to the TV for the most important sports event (for some).

Everyone always waits for the half-time show. Much more so this year, Beyoncé was to perform.

Then, all hell broke loose when the performance aired. Before long, social media was exploding with expressions on each side of the event.

Fast forward to recent times. This time, in the political area, something happened which took intelligent beings back in time. We were taken to an era in history that was a shame, a disgrace and dark times …. Nazi Germany, Heil Hitler salutes.

I found myself shuddering.

Wonder if you did?

Days after Beyoncé’s Super Bowl half-time show in which dancers were clad in Black Panther inspired costumes and one dancer held up a “Justice 4 Mario Woods” sign, the controversy continued to grow.

There’s an anti-Beyoncé protest rally in front of the NFL headquarters planned for Feb. 16, a Boycott Beyonce sign-up page, and a social media hashtag #boycottBeyonce that people are using when addressing the performance — from both sides of the issue.

BEYONCE AND THE SUPER BOWL

I’m not a football fan. I didn’t grow up watching the game, don’t know the rules and, have to say, I don’t have any interest in it.

There was no intention of watching the game at home. We had company and they wanted to watch it.

I was glad because I got to see Lady Gaga and Queen Bey.

I was glad to see both performances.

Then, all hell broke loose in the !! 

Yet, I still haven’t still seen the full “Formation” official video.

However, in my humble opinion, she did a great job in bringing to the forefront the current reality of America’s society.

Kudos, Queen Bey!!

Beyoncé Made a Major Political Statement in her Super Bowl Halftime Performance

Jonathan Zhou, Epoch Times

~February 8, 2016~

Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance of her new single, “Formation,” has received a large amount of post-game attention, stemming not from a reaction to its artistry, but the political message it apparently contained.

Her back-ups dancers were dressed in black leather and berets that bore resemblance to the uniforms of the Black Panthers, a black nationalist paramilitary group, some noted. In one point in the performance, Beyoncé and her dancers shook their fists in the air in unison, a possible reference to the 1968 Olympics black power salute.

The Formation hit-maker, who surprised everyone by dropping her new single and video at the weekend, had backing dancers dressed as members of armed rights group the Black Panthers.

While whipping their hair and stomping in incredible heels, they formed an ‘X’ on the field – a nod to black rights campaigner Malcolm X.

At one point in the video, a graffiti with the message “stop shooting us” appears on a side of a building, and Beyoncé sits atop a police car that’s submerged under the flood.

“Beyoncé’s dancers paying homage to the Black Panthers at the Superbowl wins Black History Month. #SB50.”

Her new song is thought to be a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement and Bey’s mum Tina Knowles also shared pics of her with the dancers giving the black power salute.

Beyonce’s halftime performance was so much more than just a good show. It was a powerful homage to black history, activism, and the current climate of racial instability – in front of an audience of over 100 million people.

Beyoncé and Eddie Vedder cover ‘Redemption Song‘ at Global Citizen Festival

After rocking the Global Citizen Festival with her own set Saturday, Beyoncé returned to the New York City stage to join Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder for a rendition of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song.”

The intimate performance featured just the two stars, alternating verses as Vedder accompanied them on an acoustic guitar. As they sang, footage of Nelson Mandela speaking about humanity overcoming poverty played on video screens above the stage.

“Redemption Song” is a song by Bob Marley.

It is the final track on Bob Marley & the Wailers’ ninth album, Uprising, produced by Chris Blackwell and released by Island Records. The song is considered one of Marley’s greatest works. Some key lyrics derived from a speech given by the Pan-Africanist orator Marcus Garvey.

At the time he wrote the song, circa 1979, Bob Marley had been diagnosed with the cancer in his toe that later took his life. According to Rita Marley, “he was already secretly in a lot of pain and dealt with his own mortality, a feature that is clearly apparent in the album, particularly in this song”.

“Runnin’ (Lose It All)” Lyrics

These four lonely walls have changed the way I feel
The way I feel, I’m standing still
And nothing else matters now, you’re not here
So where are you? This empty room is missing you

Where else can I go? Where else can I go?
Chasing you, chasing you
Memories turn to dust, please don’t bury us
I got you, I got you

Runnin’, runnin’, runnin’, runnin’
Runnin’, runnin’, runnin’
Ain’t runnin’ from myself no more
Together we’ll win it all
I ain’t runnin’, runnin’, runnin’, runnin’
Runnin’, runnin’, runnin’
Ain’t runnin’ from myself no more
We’ll face it all

If I lose myself, I lose it all

I fell from the fear that chased me standing still
I’m running still, I’m running still
And every voice that cries inside my head, forever drives
Forever drives, into lights

Where else can I go? Where else can I go?
Chasing you, chasing you

Runnin’, runnin’, runnin’, runnin’
Runnin’, runnin’, runnin’
Ain’t runnin’ from myself no more
Together we’ll win it all
I ain’t runnin’, runnin’, runnin’, runnin’
Runnin’, runnin’, runnin’
Ain’t runnin’ from myself no more
We’ll face it all
If I lose myself, I lose it all
If I, if I lose myself, I lose it all
If I lose myself, I lose it all
If I lose myself, I lose it all

IOTD …. “Image of the day, #272: “Waiting on the Supreme Court Decision”!!

A Day In The Life Of Waiting For The Supreme Court Decision On Marriage Equality

WASHINGTON

Any day now, the Supreme Court is going to hand down a major decision on same-sex marriage. And when it does, and if it rules in favor of marriage equality, as many observers expect, there’s going to be one hell of a party outside.

There will be rainbow flags. There will be rainbow shirts. There will be little dogs with little rainbow shirts and little rainbow flags. Hundreds and hundreds of people will likely squeeze in by the front steps, with brightly colored signs and hugs for strangers and someone blasting Beyoncé and Lady Gaga songs. There will be tears; there will be protesters. Spider-Man might come — he does from time to time — and a guy in a Revolutionary War costume will almost definitely be there.

But in the days leading up to the court’s decision — it could come Thursday, Friday or next Monday — it’s been a quieter affair.

The front steps are empty. There are no lines wrapping around the corner of the street. Even on days when the court has been in session, when there’s a chance the same-sex marriage decision could happen, rumors of the ruling being put off until late June have been enough to keep most people away.
