HBO's 'Yusuf Hawkins: Storm Over Brooklyn' is a devastating account of a racist tragedy
August 12, 2020 at 11:06 pm 0
Yusuf Hawkins is a name everyone should know. On August 23, 1989, 16-year-old Hawkins and three of his friends traveled from East New York to Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. The boys had plans to look at a car, a 1982 Pontiac for sale by the owner. When the four Black teenagers emerged from the subway into the largely white Italian-American neighborhood to meet the car's seller, they were attacked by a mob of white kids, several armed with baseball bats. All four Black boys were injured; Hawkins was fatally shot.  In the aftermath, some would say it was a case of mistaken identity. Others would argue it was the wrong time or the wrong place. The brawl that ensued was eventually tied to a love triangle involving a white neighborhood girl whom neither Hawkins nor his friends knew — proof, some claimed, that the murder wasn't racially motivated at all.  Read more...More about Hbo,

YouTube remonetizes Steven Crowder after suspension for racist, homophobic harassment
August 12, 2020 at 11:06 pm 0
Last June YouTube demonetized conservative commentator Steven Crowder after then-Vox writer Carlos Maza called the website out for failing to enforce its anti-harassment policies against him. Now YouTube has quietly reenabled Crowder's monetization, allowing him to resume earning income from a channel spreading dangerous misinformation such as "Obama Funded China's COVID-Leaking Lab." "Demonetizing was already insufficient, but this decision proves that YouTube has no real interest in enforcing it's [sic] anti-hate policies," Maza tweeted on Wednesday. Maza left Vox to be a full-time YouTuber in January, and has been a vocal critic of YouTube's laissez-faire approach to moderating hate speech.

TL;DR: Better your business with the Ultimate All-Access Business bundle ft. an award-winning business school professor for $34.99, a 98% savings as of July 9.

The good news is that if you still want to learn new business skills without going back to school, there are plenty of online options to explore. For example, award-winning business school professor Chris Haroun is taking key concepts featured in many MBA programs and making them accessible to all (and at a fraction of the price). His Ultimate All-Access Business Bundle features a collection of his top courses and is currently marked down to just $34.99.

black-ish Season 4's previously shelved "Please, Baby, Please" is now available on Hulu. In 2018, ABC (owned by Disney) decided to shelve the episode, in which Dre (Anthony Anderson) expresses fear about Donald Trump's presidency through an allegorical bedtime story for his baby. Show creator Kenya Barris shared the news on social media Monday. "Following the re-airing of 'Juneteenth' and 'Hope,' I asked Walt Disney Television to revisit making ['Please, Baby, Please'] available," Barris wrote. "Recognizing the importance of this moment, they listened and agreed." pic.twitter.com/fDuR3syihg — kenya barris (@funnyblackdude) August 10, 2020 Read more...
