Trevor Noah’s Devastated Monologue … Philando Castile dash-cam footage …. ‘It broke me’ …. “!!

JURY OF YOUR PEERS

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Trevor Noah isn’t an American.

Trevor (born 20 February 1984) is a South African television and radio host, and comedian, known for his role as host of The Daily Show on American network Comedy Central since September 2015.

He is a Black man … he knows how this feels.  

America should be ashamed but then again, there is so much to be ashamed for, that this is only a small drop in a huge bucket.

Sad!!

On Wednesday night’s episode, June 21, of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah devoted the second half of his monologue to his devastation after seeing the just-released dash-cam video footage of the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop last year.

Last week, the officer was acquitted on all charges, including manslaughter.

Philando

I won’t lie to you.

When I watched this video, it broke me.

It just – it broke me. You see so many of these videos, and you start to get numb, but this one? Seeing the child, that little girl, getting out of the car, after watching a man get killed, it broke my heart into little pieces.

Like, I thought of every joke people make about “Oh, the most confusing day in the hood is Father’s Day”:

“People don’t know where their parents are, ha-ha. Black dads.” That’s a black dad that’s gone.

That’s a child that grows up not knowing what it’s like to have somebody in their life.

It’s one thing to have the system against you – the district attorneys, the police unions, the courts – that’s one thing. But when a jury of your peers, your community, sees this evidence and decides that even this is self-defense, that is truly depressing. Because what they’re basically saying is in America, it is officially reasonable to be afraid of a person just because they are black.

And that’s the truth of what we saw with this verdict.

LONGEST DAY, SHORTEST NIGHT

Summer solstice 2017 in Northern Hemisphere was at 12:24 AM on Wednesday, June 21, 2017
All times are in Eastern Time.

~SUMMER SOLSTICE~

The summer solstice (or estival solstice), also known as midsummer, occurs when a planet’s rotational axis, or geographic pole on either its northern or its southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star that it orbits.

On the summer solstice, Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the Sun is 23.44°. This happens twice each year (once in each hemisphere), when the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or south pole.

BORICUA CHILDHOOD GAME

MEMORIES

I remember this game but, for the life of me, I can’t remember the name, if it ever had one.

The object is to hold one to the tree, then to each other for a long as you could.

The one doing the pulling won depending on how many kids were pried off!

Those were the days!

MANDY HARVEY

There are no physical, mental limitations which can stop the human spirit once the mind is made up and a goal has been chosen.

Mandy is a perfect example of this. 

Enjoy her story and her performance.

~GOLDEN BUZZER~

Mandy Harvey has one of the most incredible stories we’ve ever heard on America’s Got Talent and her amazing audition totally deserved that golden buzzer!

The 29-year-old singer lost hearing in both of her ears when she was 18 due to a degenerative ear disease while she was a freshman in college and pursuing music.

Mandy had to leave the music program and teach herself how to sing again using muscle memorization and feeling the vibration of the music with her feet.

She performed a beautiful original song that she wrote called “Try” and brought the audience to tears.

Judge Simon Cowell used his golden buzzer to send Mandy straight to the live shows and he called the audition “one of the most amazing things I have ever seen and heard.”

ASS-KISSING CONTEST 

Drumpf Cabinet Meeting Turned into a Bizarre Ass-Kissing Contest

Never seen in my lifetime, and believe you me, there are a lot of things I’ve seen in my many years.

Talk about decorum, self-respect, dignity, values, self-esteem, honor, morality, gravity, stateliness … where did they go?

On Monday, June 12, Drumpf took a break from yelling on Twitter about how the “fake media” is against him and found another way to stroke his pathological need for affection.

During a televised cabinet meeting, he said he had done as much as any president from FDR, then asked the assembled crew of billionaires, retired generals, and arch-conservative politicians what they thought the administration’s accomplishments thus far had been.

It was an exercise in attempting to satiate Drumpf’s insatiable ego, and all the officials took the opportunity to kiss as much presidential ass as possible.

A new musical mashup by Michael Korte, the YouTube personality that conceived the pop culture collision of a Hamilton/Beyoncé mashup seeks to do just that with #PURPLE4PRINCE, an ode to his Purpleness mixed with the songs of The Color Purple musical, a combination that’s fitting in more ways than one.

Featuring the vocal talents of Lolah Brown, Milo Bloom, Emi Secrest, Uri Grey, Kawan DeBose, and Sha’Leah Nikole and arranged by Jared Jenkins, the mashup uses songs from the popular musical against Prince favorites like “Purple Rain” and “I Feel For You.”

Celebrate his Purpleness and watch the full video below.
