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.

~Dear Evan Hansen Song in Memory of the Orlando Victims~

In recognition of the one-year anniversary of the attack at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where, on June 12, 2016, 49 people were killed and 53 others were wounded, the creators of mashup music videos #HAM4BEY have released their newest collaboration: a moving rendition of “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen in memory of the victims.

The music video series was created by artist Michael Korte.

The performers featured are Mario Jose, Vincint, Danielle Withers, and Eric Lyn.

The track was arranged by David Rowen, with vocal production by Alexander Blake. The video was filmed and edited by Baxter Stapleton.

On June 12, 2016 – the same day as the Tony Awards – a gunman opened fire around 2 AM in Orlando’s Pulse gay nightclub, where more than 300 people were inside.

The attack marked one of the deadliest against the LGBTQ community in the nation’s history.

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.

History in ‘almost a nutshell’ …. 🇵🇷 “Should Puerto Rico Become The 51st State? …. It’s a shady concept …. “!! 🇵🇷

REFERENDUM WAS CONDUCTED

I don’t live in Puerto Rico anymore. I was born and raised there.

Politics is a national sport.

A referendum was held on June 11, 2017.

It was a ruse, a futile exercise and a total waste of money.

Get more information below and watch a short video which presents in almost a nutshell the reality of Puerto Rico, my country

Referendum on the political status of Puerto Rico held in Puerto Rico on June 11, 2017

The referendum had three options: becoming a state of the United States, independence/free association, or maintaining the current territorial status.

Those who voted overwhelmingly chose statehood by 97%; turnout, however, was 23%, a historically low figure.

(recalculating and using additional numbers, that number decreased to 18% turnout)

This figure is attributed to a boycott led by the pro-status quo PPD party.

~WIKIPEDIA~

GoldSwirlAJ+GoldSwirl

Puerto Rico’s governor, Ricardo Roselló, pushed ahead with his top campaign promise of trying to convert the US territory into a state, holding a Sunday referendum to let voters send a message to Congress.

His party has launched an aggressive ad campaign urging people to “demand respect” with their vote – to choose statehood so the island can obtain equal treatment from the federal government that some say would ease a 10-year economic recession that has spurred nearly half a million Puerto Ricans to flee to the U.S. mainland.

AMID ECONOMIC CRISIS, PUERTO RICO PREPARES TO VOTE ON STATEHOOD

Amid economic crisis, Puerto Rico prepares to vote on statehood

GoldSwirl

~Miami Herald~

“Sunday’s referendum is not binding.

It was more an exercise of electoral temperature-taking than a mandate to convert the island into an American state.”

Statehood should not be the equivalent of throwing a drowning swimmer a lifesaver.

Puerto Rico must ably address its economic distress and pursue statehood by assuring Congress and the rest of United States that it would be a strong and capable addition, not a chronically needy one.”

~~Should Puerto Rico Become The 51st State?~~

~~Published on Jun 4, 2017~~

There are 3.5 million US citizens currently facing one of the worst financial crises in this country – and they’re all in Puerto Rico.

The US government has an almost 120-year-long relationship with Puerto Rico – which is a territory, not the 51st state. But what has that relationship looked like? Why is Puerto Rico still a territory, and what do Puerto Ricans, themselves, want for their future? Explore these questions – and some others – with Sana Saeed, who starts the story at the very beginning: May 12, 1898.

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!

ANOTHER GOLDEN BUZZER 

~Christian Guardino~

I’ve been catching up with my recorded shows.

America’s Got Talent is the one currently on television. These ‘common folk’ are amazing.

There’s so much hidden talent. Bring it out!

Enjoy Chris’ performance.

GoldSwirl

Christian Guardino shocked the judges with his powerful voice on America’s Got Talent and he earned the golden buzzer for his amazing audition!

The 16-year-old singer was blind for most of his life before a gene therapy was able to restore his vision.

Christian performed the classic song “Who’s Loving You” and brought the judges and the audience to their feet!

“You were like a little mouse that turned into a lion. You are one of my favorite contestants I’ve seen this year. Not only in terms of your voice. I just like you.

There’s something about you, and it’s just the best possible feeling when we meet someone like you,”

Simon Cowell told Christian.

Howie Mandel decided to use his golden buzzer and send Christian directly to the live shows!
