The Debate of San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick Not Standing Up for The National Anthem, How a Slave Owner Wrote The Song & At The Time, America Was The Land of The Oppress, Not The Free

Posted On: August 30, 2016

Some people got their britches up in a bunch about San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick not standing up during the playing of the 'National Anthem'  this past Friday (August 26th) pre-season game. Some fans took offense to this, burning Colin's jersey, as well as other people who spoke out against Kaepernick refusal to stand for the national anthem. So, I took it upon myself to do a some research about who wrote the song, where America was at the time, the message the song was trying to convey and the energy behind it. I'll get into that as I continue to write, for now, let's find out the details of this whole Colin Kaepernick controversial concerning the national anthem, his reasons and how he is not the first athlete to stand for something.

When Colin Kaepernick was interviewed exclusively by NFL Media as to why he refused to stand during the national anthem, he expressed the issue of police brutality and America's history of enslaving and oppressing Black people.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color," Colin told NFL Media.

He continued with his statement about the innocent killings of Black men across the nation.

"To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."

Even after giving his reasons, some fans and others still took offense, instead of trying to understand the logic and the truth in Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the national anthem. Is there an issue with police brutality in this country? And the answer is yes, you can't deny it. Does America have a history of enslaving and oppressing Black people? Do they continue to use tactics in oppression such as psychological conditioning in media broadcasting, the negative narrative and portrayal in trying to exclude Black people, the lack of justice from police brutality killing? The lack of collective effort in politics and law to abolish racism which is a mental disorder? But the minute a person stands up against racism, they are the trouble makers instead of being portrayed as courageous and having the strength to not fall for bigotry but rise against it.

It's sad to see a man stand up for others, with dignity being portrayed and spoken out against as if he did something wrong. But none have took the time to try to understand and even be willing to learn something new, by opening up a book to discover what Colin Kaepernick is talking about pertaining to the national anthem. The reason for it is, for some people it is easier to deny, neglect certain issues, they would rather sweep it under the rug then take time and apply effort to rectify the problem. It's not like the solution is not there, it's just that some people are resistant to change, even if it means improving the lives of others.


Since the Colin Kaepernick's ordeal with the national anthem, the 49ers issues a statement, standing alongside Colin in his decision, acknowledging his right to do so as a citizen and a human being.

"The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony. It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect on the great liberties we are afforded as its citizens. In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose and participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem."

Prior to this national anthem controversy, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwayne Wade and Chris Paul took a stand at the ESPY Awards in July of this year, to bring awareness about police brutality and urging others to take a stand as well. Carmelo Anthony even marched with protestors in Baltimore. In the same month, three WNBA players wore "Black Lives Matter" shirts to get a message across, counteracting the vile acts of police brutality on Black lives. And there has been numerous athletes who took a stand, including Olympians and Muhammad Ali who was a fighter not only in the ring, but stood up for the rights of others just like Colin Kaepernick.

Now let's look at the history of the national anthem, it was written by Francis Scott Key in 1814. The writer of the national anthem song and lyrics was a slave owner. He even criticized slaves for trying to fight with the British and stand up for their rights in obtaining their freedom from the British. Francis Scott Key even used the word "slave" itself in the song.

"A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave'"

The lyrics praised war, tyranny and atrocities.

"And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air."

"That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion."

And at the time in 1814 when the national anthem was written, slavery was not abolished yet, so the state of America was a widely oppress one. So how could it have been the "land of the free" based on the national anthem?

"O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."

The discrepancies in those lyrics and how was it a home of the brave? When the Ku Klux Klan were hiding behind white sheets, left burning crosses on Black people's property, burned down Black churches, conducted public and mass lynching of Black people. How is that brave? But an act of cowardice. And even today with police brutality, killing innocent Black men and the justice system who fail them. How Sway?!!!

Does Colin Kaepernick  have a point of reason for his actions? Hmmm, my answer is yes and I learned something new because of it. The national anthem was written by a lawyer, Francis Scott Key who enslaved the rights of others to be free and felt that Black people were inferior to him. So, how can any Black person honor a song like that? The energy of it is not a blessing to them but one that would rather oppress them for who you are. A song written by a lawyer who failed to stand up for the rights of others but wrote a song to criticize them for standing up for themselves in 1814.

In disagreeing with Colin Kaepernick, be willing to do some research and you'll be more effective in your debates. In researching as well, you'll discover the truth. Instead of burning his jerseys and reacting based on emotions, try to see his point of view and where he is coming from. The least anybody can do is to try to understand and have an open mind to do so. There's even a petition to eradicate the national anthem because of its racist structure.

Rick Ross Celebrates 'Port of Miami' 10th Year Anniversary

Posted On: August 30, 2016

Push it to the limit!

It's the chorus on the track 'Push It' off Rick Ross' classic album "Port of Miami." A masterpiece that paints the stories of kingpins' hustle and trying to discover their thrones against all odds. The song samples 'Push It To Limit,' off the soundtrack for the movie "Scarface."

Ross always had this suave, smooth and glistening aura about him. He displayed the lifestyle and fashion of both worlds. Renzel can throw on a hoodie, jeans and Timbs to thug it out. And transition into a tailor fit suit to custom his needs, throw some silk shirts, imported shoes; and give off a swanky glamorous vibe. The Biggest Boss has a unique voice, he's like the Barry White of Hip Hop. Rick Ross' voice is captivating, it's enthralling and he charms his way into the hearts and soul of his fans and listeners with it.


In those ten years, Rick Ross managed to reinvent himself. Different characteristics (and even personalities) are needed for various situation sometimes. For example: you can't manage your children, the same way you would manage your employees. Even though, it's the same person with those two situations, an alternate persona is needed because the approach of those situations are not the same. 

This year, Rick Ross introduced another moniker the "Biggest Boss" and it goes beyond the moniker. It's how Renzel sees himself, what he believes himself to be, how he aspires towards it and the growth of those words. Ross basically is speaking power unto himself. Over the course of 10 years, Rick Ross has grown and evolved as a Hip Hop artist, a businessman, entertainer and etc.

To celebrate his achievements and the accomplishment of his creativity in the LP Port of Miami, Rick Ross held a concert in his hometown last night (August 29th), with performances by: Meek Mill, Jeezy, Remy Ma, Fat, Joe, Trina and more. The event was sponsored and premiered exclusively on TIDAL.

Sibusiso Sibis from South Africa Creates and Launches First 100% Black Owned Vodka Company, 'Distinkt'

Posted On: August 29, 2016

This story was first published in mid May of this year and I just received an email about it. I feel as though it is important for me to write and bring awareness about it, entrepreneurship and the power of ownership. In each of us is a vault of ideas, goals and dreams to enrich our lives, the world and discover the wealth of our purpose. My main purpose and focus to share stories like these are, to activate, stimulate and energize those ideas, goals and dreams in others, so that they can take on the drive and leadership to create Black owned businesses, companies; and enterprises. And overall, discover the entrepreneur in them that might be hidden somewhere. A lot of you are diamonds in the rough, so allow life's pressure to mold and help you discover the jewel within.

Also, the debate and argument of complaining about the racism, bigotry or ignorance of a business that does not want to associate or want Black people associated with them. The most rationale solution for it, is to create your own! Don't get me wrong, I'm all for boycotting but at the same time, plant your seeds of ideas into the soil of entrepreneurship, create, build; and nurture your own. Bring that balance of fortifying and strengthening your own, therefore, the oppressor, racism and etc. can not weaken nor exclude you, because you are not dependent on them. It's about acknowledging and having knowledge of our own worth and values, investing in it, to constitute, formulate; and establish our own. For this reason, nobody can devalue us or rob us of our worth. And it also, empowers not only us, but the diversity of the world we live in.

Anyhow, let's get into this first Black owned vodka company and why it is important.

Sibusiso Sibisi is a graduate chemist from South Africa, who had a vision and was determined to get into the liquor business. Taking on his ambitious energy, Sibisi linked up with three other entrepreneurs from a township west of Johannesburg called, Kagiso. This unity led to the creation and launch of the first 100% Black owned vodka brand, "Distinkt." Sibusiso Sibisi (pictured below) is the chemist and distiller in creating the vodka, by employing raw products such as: potatoes, fruits, wheat and grain to create the vodka.

"It only takes a couple of hours to combine the raw materials, boiling them in extreme temperatures and eventually fermenting for up to six hours. Next is the filtration process which is done three times. The distillation process takes two hours and is done thrice to ensure that the right quantity of alcohol has been used," Sibisi revealed in an interview.

He is also the leader and the brainchild behind the whole operation. After several meetings with his business associates, they all decided with core reasoning, that the liquor business was the best route for all of them.

"I bounced many ideas around with my partners and we decided that for several reasons, alcohol would be the best bet. It appeals to everyone from young entry-level employees to company executives. Plus, it is easier and faster to produce compared to than other types of alcohol."

South African's liquor and alcohol's market is currently $6.17 billion dollars and although, its consumers and buyers are mostly melanated people, none of them have 100% ownership of any of those liquor and alcohol brands. This is where Sibusiso Sibisi and his business partners come in, with a desire to change it, innovate and make a difference. Sibisi expressed, the significance of keeping the money rotating 360, as in buying, investing and revenues.

"Lastly this is a multi billion dollar industry and a way to make sure that all this money spent from Black pockets stays and circulates within the Black community."

He conveyed, how the launching of Distinkt Vodka is a conscious movement, it contributes to the whole "Buy Black" movement across the world, and a self appreciative movement of knowing your power in constructing, producing and cultivating a business that is 100% Black owned.

"It is youth owned, 100% Black owned and manufactured with the African consumer in mind. It is a premium Vodka of the highest quality and is attractively priced. But most of all Distinkt Vodka is a lifestyle movement, a consciousness movement and a self appreciation movement. Distinkt Vodka is an African Premium Vodka like no other in the entire world."

After receiving certification and accreditation from the SA Bureau of Standards (SABS) and South African National Accreditation System accreditation (SANAS, Distinkt Vodka will make its premier on the commercial market in September. Sibusiso Sibisi understands the liquor and alcohol market is a saturated one and the branding, marketing and promotions of Distinkt has to stand out; in order to attract, captivate and build clientele.

"We have an opportunity to build everything from square one: brand, name, image and marketing strategies and that is a great opportunity."

"It is crucial for us to get our marketing strategy right," Sibisi added.

Sibusiso Sibisi revealed, one of his hustle and marketing strategy to push and sale Distinkt Vodka is to brand it with some celebrity image and present a distinctive lifestyle that endorses its theme.

"We have approached a couple of celebrities to promote Distinkt Vodka. We want to place our Vodka not only as a drink of choice but as a lifestyle - a premium lifestyle."

He conveyed, that quality is very important and in order to authenticate quality, one must be creative.

"We will remain creative and we will never compromise on the quality of our product."

In concluding his interview with SME South Africa, Sibusiso Sibisi dispatched the overall goal for Distinkt Vodka.

"Our goal is to place Distinkt Vodka front-and-centre in the minds of our consumers when they are thinking of buying premium vodka for their establishments, parties, special events, chillas and getaways. We have also created social media pages to interact with our consumers and have established a website for regular updates, news on Distinkt Vodka and lifestyle interactions."

With the introduction of Distinkt Vodka in the South Africa's market, Sibisi's targeted goal is to take one Africa's whole market, then going abroad international and hit the market worldwide. He is currently formulating a brand of flavored vodka for Distnikt.

CCTV Africa did a story coverage about Sibusiso Sibis's launch of Distinkt Vodka and his disposition of building a liquor and alcohol empire off it.

First Lady, Michelle Obama Graces the Cover of 'Variety' Magazine and Talks About Tapping Into Pop Culture to Raise Awarenesss

Posted On: August 29, 2016

As the 2016 elections slowly approaches and President Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama are drawing near their final days at the White House, 'Variety' magazine sat down to talk to Mrs. Obama.

The First Lady graces the cover of the magazine, spotlighted as the center point for Variety's Autumn issue. Characterized in a black and white, asymmetrical dress at the helm line, patent leather pumps and flowing hair. Michelle stands tall in her confidence, elegantly polished in sophistication and class. Her smile is dignified with purity.

Variety's cover story and interview, highlights and details Michelle Obama's venture and progress as a First Lady during her husband's terms. Her position, the role she played and its effectiveness to reach the public on issues that matter. As a First Lady, Michelle Obama continues to be very active and operative as a voice for the people. She has been involved in several initiatives to bring about innovative change for the better and improve the nation in areas they lacked and struggled in.

Since President Obama's sworn in and taking oath into office, the First Lady utilized her platform in politics to make an impact. She kicked off her first initiative "Let's Move" six years ago, to sponsor and advocate the importance of eating healthy and exercising. Since its launched, Michelle Obama managed to raise awareness and get people involved from all walks of lives, from public figures, celebrities, schools, non-profit organizations and etc; to decline the obesity rate in children and recuperate their health.

In her interview with Variety, she contributes being a comical person and employing comedy as way to reach people on a broader scale.

"What I have never been afraid of is to be a little silly, and you can engage people that way,” she stated.

In making people feel a sense of joy and comfortable in happiness, she manages to get them to listen.

"My view is, first you get them to laugh, then you get them to listen. So I’m always game for a good joke, and I’m not so formal in this role. There’s very little that we can’t do that people wouldn’t appreciate."

Michelle Obama calls herself a "product of pop culture" and tapping into it to raise awareness and make a difference. Also, applying the entertainment industry into her strategy of reaching the masses and being effective in getting her message across. She explained to Variety, of knowing what it would take in having her message transmitted through television.

"Reaching people where they lived on a day-to-day basis, and the next step was, ‘How do you do that? Where are the people?’ Well, they’re not reading the op-ed pieces in the major newspapers. They’re not watching Sunday morning news talk shows. They’re doing what most people are doing: They are watching TV."

She disclosed the type of audience she knew she was dealing with, in trying to plug in the younger public about her initiative through the means of comedy.

"A lot of our audiences are kids and teens, and they want to be in on the joke. And they’ll listen again. We’re just a little looser with this stuff than most traditional first ladies."

Recently, the First Lady was part CBS's "Late Late Show" segment, 'Carpool Karaoke' and sat in the passenger side of a car with the host, James Corden. They circled the driveway of the White House's South Lawn with Michelle Obama singing her favorite songs, for example Missy Elliott's 'Get Your Freak On.' During the filming of the show, Michelle focused on one of her initiative "Let Girls Learn," a program dedicated to providing and improving the resource of education worldwide for all girls across the globe. Both the Firs Lady and James Corden sang the initiative's theme song 'This Is for My Girls,' written by Diane Warren and performed by several musicians including Janelle Monae, to convey Let Girls Learn directives.

Michelle thought what better way to get through people than music. Being a product of pop culture, she is aware of this. Since the show aired, the song's sales digitally increased in the market and generated 40 millions views on YouTube. Magnifying the purpose of her Let Girls Learn initiative and grasping its message.

At the time of the interview with Variety, the First Lady brought up issues in the entertainment industry which needs to be addressed, reformed and remolded; to fit the imagery of the diverse world we live in. She spoke about people not being able to understand one another, due to their lack of stories being told on television and movies.

"For so many people, television and movies may be the only way they understand people who aren’t like them,” Michelle expressed.

She continued with her statement, revealing her role as the First Lady of America, her image and the impact in made in role modeling, and improving the narrative for African-American girls. The projection of someone who looks like them, corroborates and endorses who they are and not what racism, stereotype, ignorance and etc., says they are.

"And when I come across many little black girls who come up to me over the course of this 7½ years with tears in their eyes, and they say: ‘Thank you for being a role model for me. I don’t see educated black women on TV, and the fact that you’re first lady validates who I am."

Michelle Obama reflected on her mother saying so many people were in awe and smitten of her and President Obama, like its something new. She communicated, there are millions of Michelle and Barack Obama's out there, the narrative of it, in education, morals, family structure and so on,;and the importance of that image and story being portrayed.

"There are millions of Michelle and Barack Obamas.’ We’re not new. We’re not special. People who come from intact families who are educated, who have values, who care for their kids, who raise their kids — if you don’t see that on TV, and you don’t live in communities with people like me, you never know who we are, and you can make and be susceptible to all sorts of assumptions and stereotypes and biases, based on nothing but what you see and hear on TV. So it becomes very important for the world to see different images of each other, so that, again, we can develop empathy and understanding."

The First Lady disclosed the inclusion of those narratives and images are censorious in the entertainment industry and it needs improvement, in fostering the diversity of the world. Its perception, how it is seen through each individual's eyes, the reflection of it and projection its reality. And introducing this reality, so people can relate to one another, understand each other and their stories; in familiarizing the narrative of differences in the world through broadcasting.

"There are folks who now know black families — like the Johnsons on ‘Black-ish’ or the folks on ‘Modern Family.’ They become part of who you are. You share their pains. You understand their fears. They make you laugh, and they change how you see the world. And that is particularly true in a country where there are still millions of people who live in communities where they can live their whole lives not having contact or exposure with people who aren’t like them, whether that is race or religion or simply lifestyle. The only way that millions of people get to know other folks and the way they live … is through the power of television and movies."

Michelle Obama noted, the importance of diverse representation in TV shows and movies, and projecting the difference of population.
