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.

To start the day …. “In case you missed it … The case for Puerto Rico”!!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Hamilton

An American Musical’s Lin-Manuel Miranda explains the economic crisis in Puerto Rico.

And it’s amazing.

This is a very urgent matter. Time is rolling by, no actions are forthcoming. There’s a tsunami headed for Puerto Rico and people are idly standing by.

I can’t stress enough how important this is.

“A commonwealth with not a lot of wealth and not quite nation … 3.5 American civilians are on the hook for billions.

Help Puerto Rico … it’s only 199 miles across”

Lin-Manuel Miranda performs emotional song about Puerto Rico for John Oliver
The ‘Hamilton‘ star debuted an original rap about the debt crisis on ‘Last Week Tonight’.

By BREANNE L. HELDMAN

Puerto Rico is in a desperate state of crisis as time is running out on the May 1 deadline to restructure its $70 billion debt. Making matters worse, as John Oliver explained on Sunday’s Last Week Tonight, they can’t file for bankruptcy due to an unexplainable, tiny provision in a 1984 law.

But Oliver wasn’t alone in detailing the urgency of the situation — he had a little help from Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

“We need to stop treating Puerto Rico like it’s just a tax haven or a place to have terrifying sex with a stranger in a coconut mask, and instead, we have to start treating it like an island of American citizens whose fate is interwoven with ours,” Oliver summarized about 19 minutes into his segment.

“And, look, there are certainly better voices than mine to speak on behalf of Puerto Rico.

Luckily, there is someone with Puerto Rican parents and an amazing voice,” he added before introducing Miranda himself, who performed an entirely new rap dedicated to the situation.

Trump’s Viral Super Tuesday Victory Speech …. “the SNL Way”!!


SNL1

~~March 6, 2016~~ 

SUPER TUESDAY VICTORY SPEECH

ICYMI

There was plenty of crazy material from the Republicans this week and in order to cover as much of their embarrassing antics as possible, NBC’s Saturday Night Live broke with their usual format and jammed four openings on their show last night.

The result was a series of hilarious and stinging skits.

SNL tackled Trump’s viral Super Tuesday victory speech in which New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stands behind the Republican front-runner — an awkward moment that had Twitter wondering if Christie was being held hostage.

“The media is saying they haven’t seen anything like this, not since Germany in the 1930’s,” actor Darrel Hammond’s Donald Trump says alongside Bobby Moynihan’s timid Chris Christie. “I mean, everyone loves me. Racists. Ugly racists. People who didn’t even know they were racists … I even have this fat piece of crap behind me now.”

GoldSwirl

“I mean, he really is a sad, desperate little potato back there. Aren’t you Chris?” Hammond adds. “Yes, sir. Thank you, sir. Please, sir, may I have another?” Moynihan responds.

In another scene, Jason Sudeikis portrayed Mitt Romney to say how he probably didn’t change the minds of any Trump supporters after delivering his “aggressive, passionate, well measured anti-Trump speech.”

It all began with Beck Bennett as Jake Tapper when he hosted the week-in-review montage which highlighted Darrell Hammond as Donald Trump telling the world how great he his with a bewildered looking Chris Christie, played by Bobby Moynihan, staring in the background. Hammond-as-Trump said:

“I really am running the best campaign, aren’t I? The media’s saying they haven’t seen anything like this, not since Germany in the 1930’s. I mean, everyone loves me: racists, ugly racists, people who didn’t know they were racist.”

Then it was the hilarious Kate McKinnon playing Hillary Clinton giving a victory speech for her post-Super Tuesday victory:

“Thank you for trusting that I, Hillary Clinton, can bring this country together. Just like I brought these ten black people and one Muslim person together behind me tonight for this speech.”

GoldSwirl

Then it was Bennett-as-Tapper interviewing Ted Cruz, played by Taran Killam, but not before a warning for the audience that they were about to see Ted Cruz’s “whole face.” Asked about Thursday’s GOP debate, Killam-as-Cruz said:

“The debate was so much fun. I talked policy, I laid out my plan for America, and right at the end I ate a tiny, little white booger off my lip.”

Then finally Mitt Romney, played by Jason Sudeikis, joined Bennet-as-Tapper to discuss Donald Trump:

“For the last nine months, I’ve sat down and watched Donald Trump say something every day that was either racist or sexist. And we in the GOP … we do not say racist and sexist things; we imply them subtly over decades and decades of policy.”

“(In case you missed it)”

Today I need soothing. Today I need peace.

Today I need beauty.

As I read the posts on the blogs I follow, as I read the newspaper (extremely rarely), as I watch the news (not that much anymore), as I interact with some friends and family, I feel the way that we treat each other.

It doesn’t look good.

The greed is ever present. The wars continue. The inequality and discrimination continues. The stupidity of those in office & those wanting to be in office continues. The killings continue.

The destruction of our Earth continues.

I strongly believe that all of us want better. I strongly believe that all of us need soothing.

Beauty and Nature soothes me.

This is what is could and should be.

Let’s not stand back and not do anything. We all can do something. We need to reclaim our humanity, our spirit and our goodness.

How can we do that?

SONG: Two Steps From Hell – Eria
I’m aware of the grammar mistakes in the introduction. I’m also aware that “it’s” is an abbreviated version of “it is”. I don’t need a lecture on correct English. I was extremely tired and made a couple of errors regarding grammar.

My mistakes don’t take anything away from the sentiment of the introduction or video. I’m human, I make mistakes.
