As if rich white guys weren’t already eating better than everyone else…

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — The U.S. Justice Department approved the merger between satellite radio companies Sirius and XM Monday, more than a year after the two companies first announced their deal.But for fans of Howard Stern, Opie & Anthony and other Sirius and XM on-air personalities, there are still many questions about how much a combined Sirius-XM service will cost and what programs they’ll be able to hear. Plus, Sirius and XM face one more regulatory hurdle before the deal can officially be completed.

 If it looks like a monopoly, smells like a monopoly, walks like a monopoly and talks like a monopoly…guess what? IT’S A MONOPOLY!

Full videos of the sermons Rev Wright gave:


 

This isn’t about defending or condemning Rev. Wright’s speeches or views, its about providing the context for the clips being played by mainstream media. The problem here is that the news being given to most people is not objective, they’ve already condemned the sermon before they play them. Rather than showing the whole clip and letting people form their own opinions about it, they take a small part and make the decision for you. If you listen to the whole sermon you’ll see that what Rev Wright is saying is true: America is run by rich whites who have no concern for people of color, hence the problem here is racism and white supremacy.

And just in case you missed it like me, here’s Obama’s full speech on race and politics:

This was a nice speech. There’s really no denying that, and I agree with his view that we have to confront the problem of racism if we’re ever going to truly unite as a country. But one thing I don’t agree with is that by condemning the Reverend’s comments, Obama is basically saying he doesn’t agree with the fact that white elites control this country. He talks about corporations and special interest groups, but who do you think owns these corporations and pays lobbyists? Rich whites. (and if you need proof just look at the top of the organizational charts for the big corporations where it says “board of directors”). I don’t expect Obama to agree with the pastor because that would cost him the election. But its sad that everybody says what a great speech this is without considering the fact that Obama is rejecting the idea of white supremacy, a concept that is so clear to see and really essential to understanding most of the problems that exist in this country (like poor education, the economy and sub-prime mortgage rate loan defaults, ect.) including slavery, which he spoke about throughout the speech. Not once did he even mention white supremacy…

A Just Realeyez Exclusive…”

Vodpod videos no longer available. from blog.vodpod.com posted with vodpod

University of Maryland Alum Aaron McGruder has done it once again…another memorable, classic Boondocks Episode. Maybe not quite as strong as the Dr. King Episode, but “The Huey Freeman Hunger Strike” is a little too real. The episode from Season 2 has been banned from being shown on Comedy Central along with another episode which supposedly satirically attacks BET.

In this episode, BET’s CEO, Debra Lee, “Debra Lee-vil,” a sinister Dr. Evil clone who kills underlings and rants about creating a network “that would accomplish what hundreds of years of slavery, Jim Crow and malt liquor couldn’t – the destruction of black people.” BET entertainment president Reggie Hudlin – once a “Boondocks” executive producer and mentor to McGruder is depicted as Dr. Lee-vil’s Harvard-educated sidekick who propses stealing five-year-old reality show ideas from MTV and making them black for BET (hmmm seems familiar….)

Feburary 7th is Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and even though the day is almost over (late on the post, my bad I was in class!) you should still be mindful of what’s going on and prevention methods. Here is a fact sheet put together by JustRealeyez friend Manouchkathe Cassagnol, Pharm.D. who is the Assistant Clinical Professor of Clinical Pharmacy Practice in the College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions at St. John’s University. For more infomation also check out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP)’s Black HIV/AIDS Day site.
What you need to know about HIV/AIDS
Stats
According to the 2000 census, African Americans and Latinos make up approximately 27% of the US population. However, African Americans accounted for 49% of the estimated HIV/AIDS diagnoses in the United States in the 33 states with long-term, confidential name-based HIV reporting.1 Latinos account for 19% of all AIDS cases diagnosed since the beginning of the epidemic through 2004. These are astounding numbers and should cause great alarm in the minority community.
The best defense against acquiring this disease is by becoming more knowledgeable about this devastating disease.Here are a few definitions that we should become more familiar with 1) Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV): a virus that infects and destroy the cells of the body’s immune system causing the marked reduction in their numbers and effectiveness in fighting infection which can lead to AIDS, 2) Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS): a serious fatal disease of the immune system caused by the transmission of HIV virus through blood products especially by sexual contact or contaminated needles.

(peep my man in pink lookin like a young Hov, stealin shit sampling rhymes from other people…lol…)

These apparent “fight clubs” are occurring at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, MD which rests in Prince George’s County, a predominately black area boarding Washington D.C. According to news outlets, “racist, sexist and homophobic rants” are prompting “taunts and threats” that are surfacing Myspace and YouTube. According to WJLA(ABC7) “Students say some of their classmates, instead of composing essays, focus of gun violence, homophobia and racism. They face-off in verbal confrontations which wind-up on the internet.” What appears to be a way for kids to passively resolve the problems that high school students tend to have with each other, is being marginalized into an attack on Hip Hop culture.
