Cypher, Donald Trump, and Eminem: Eminem Spits Powerful, Politically Charged Verse At 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards: "We Love Our Military. We Love Our Country. But We F*kin Hate Trump!" @balleralert #HIPHOPAWARDS 2 Eminem Spits Powerful, Politically Charged Verse At 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards: “We Love Our Military. We Love Our Country. But We F**kin Hate Trump!” - blogged by @MsJennyb (video @bet) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Tuesday, the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards aired with special performances by Yo Gotti, Uncle Luke and Cardi B, who won big with five awards throughout the night. The annual show featured its highly anticipated cypher segment, where underground and up and coming rappers freestyle over a classic beat. However, the most talked about cypher of the night, came from none other than Eminem. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The rapper dropped an explosive politically charged verse exclusively for the BET Hip Hop Awards, where he drew a line in the sand, separating himself from his fans that are in support of Donald Trump. In the 4:34 minute verse, Eminem ripped Trump apart for his divisive language and used his platform and privilege to combat prejudice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We better give Obama props, cause what we got in office now is a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust. And while the drama pops and he waits for shit to quiet down, he’ll just gas his plane up and fly around til the bombing stops,” Em rapped in his solo cypher. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Intensities heighten, tensions are rising.

Facebook, Funny, and Memes: Black Woman Says She Was Targeted For Her Race After A Piece of Fried Chicken Is Thrown At Her @balleralert Black Woman Says She Was Targeted For Her Race After A Piece of Fried Chicken Was Thrown At Her – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last week, a Black Missouri woman spoke out against an incident of possible racial animosity after a piece of fried chicken was thrown at her while she was stuck in traffic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alexis Newsome, took to her Facebook page to share the story, saying a person in a red truck threw the chicken as she sat in the turning lane on Manchester Road. Although she thought the item was an eggshell at first, upon realizing it was a piece of chicken, she believed she was targeted because of her race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I don’t want to have to explain this to my five-year-old this is not fair,” she said, explaining that the chicken nearly hit her in the face. “ I was scared. I almost crashed into the car next to me. …I want people to understand what this feels like and how it’s not easy living in this brown skin.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s almost something I cannot put into words about how I feel as a mom and a woman of color. I want people to have those conversations with people that if they hear a joke, it’s not funny. We are not doing that; we are not going to speak like that. I want people to combat those types of hate.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, the Manchester Police Department is investigating the incident, checking the area to see if anything had been captured on surveillance video.

All Lives Matter, Children, and Friends: SOME COMBAT VETERANS ARE TEACHERS VETERANS COME FIRST LIKEe RESPECT From @veterans_come_first Jeff Shelton, who spent over 20 years serving in the armed forces, retiring as a Major from the U.S. Air Force, is preparing to start his second year teaching at Lamar Consolidated High School in Rosenberg. Shelton is among more than 3,000 veterans in Texas and more than 20,000 nationwide who traded bulletproof vests for textbooks to become teachers supported by the Troops to Teachers program. Every time he parachuted into enemy territory, every time he held a dying friend in the back of a helicopter, every time he watched a child collapse from grave injuries, peace for Shelton seemed to slip farther and farther away. He found his inner anguish only intensified when he retired from the military in December 2016 and finally had time to process all the wickedness he had seen in the world. It was almost too much for the 42-year-old to process, until he walked into his Junior ROTC classroom inside Lamar Consolidated High School later that month. "I didn't take the time to deal with my past. I had a lot of friends commit suicide or die — some of them died with me in the back of a helicopter. I just never dealt with it," Shelton said. "So here, I found a lot of peace in helping (the students) transition into adulthood." The employment of American veterans in schools is, undoubtedly, good news, as the school authorities and the teaching staff of schools consist mainly of left-wing liberals and therefore inspires children with purely left-liberal views. That is why such a large percentage of young people are very liberal. That veterans will be able to teach children the right attitude towards their country, their traditions, their past and their own state. police cop cops thinblueline lawenforcement policelivesmatter supportourtroops BlueLivesMatter AllLivesMatter brotherinblue bluefamily tbl thinbluelinefamily sheriff policeofficer backtheblue

Arsenal, Batman, and Climbing: EXPLOSIVE GEL @HISTORYORTHEBATMAN RAT "What's In That Utility Belt: A History of Batman Gadgets" - Explosive Gel: In August of 2009, Rocksteady Studios with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment developed the video game 'Batman: Arkham Asylum for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. The game was written by 'Batman: The Animated Series' Paul Dini , who created an entirely original plot within the Batman mythos. Wanting to have a central focus setting in the game to limit the Dark Knight's access to help within Gotham, 'Arkham Asylum' was visually inspired by stories such as Grant Morrison and Dave McKean's 1989 one shot graphic novel "Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth". The voice cast included the original BTAS talents such as Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill @HamillHimself as Joker and Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn. Batman has to fight his way through a Joker controlled Arkham Asylum to stop the detonation of hidden bombs throughout the city of Gotham. In gameplay, Batman's detective skills are enhanced with 'Detective Vision', able to examine objects and individuals providing contextual evidence, and his combat skills are brilliantly showcased with an array of running, kicking, jumping, climbing, and gliding, including dozens of lethal combos, providing a new look into Gotham's infamous insane asylum. Seen in this game and the following sequel and prequel chapters of Arkham City (2011), Arkham Origins (2013) and Arkham Knight (2015), many new gadgets were created to aid the Batman in gameplay, such as Explosive Gel. The Dark Knight would spray an amount of gelignite (in the shape of a crude Bat symbol) on a supposedly weak surface, then would detonate the destructive gel to explode. The Explosive Gel can be used to tear down a surface or used as a weapon against enemies; if henchmen are in the radius of a blast caused by the gadget, it would knock them out temporarily. The Explosive Gel was also an important part in taking down the Titan-enhanced Joker towards the end of "Batman: Arkham Asylum" chapter (clip presented). Even in this highly popular video game franchise, the Caped Crusader's arsenal continues to evolve with the 78 year old character. ✌🏼💙🦇🎮
