What If the Media Started Telling It Like It Really Is? #22


Thought this was too powerful not to share...



via Jeff Gates on FLICKR

"In the August 11th edition of the Washington Post, they had a special section called "Lives Lost." It showed the photos and names of those who had lost their lives to gun violence.

If the media started telling it like it really is, they would state the blame for these deaths on the president, the GOP, and the NRA, all of whom have continually stopped responsible gun laws from being enacted. Blaming video games on these massacres, when research shows no such correlation, is an obstruction of justice for these victims.

A beautiful installation at our southern border that reminds us that: “Actions that take place on one side have direct consequences on the other.”
We are all connected.
We are all one

JOHNNY CLEGG 1953 - 2019

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (- via facebook)
16 July 2019

It is with immense sadness that we confirm that Jonathan (Johnny) Clegg, OBE OIS succumbed to pancreatic cancer at the age of 66 on the afternoon of 16 July 2019 at his family home in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Johnny leaves deep foot prints in the hearts of every person that considers him/herself to be an African. He showed us what it was to assimilate to and embrace other cultures without losing your identity. An anthropologist that used his music to speak to every person. With his unique style of music he traversed cultural barriers like few others. In many of us he awakened awareness.

Johnny was born on 7 June 1953 in Bacup, Lancashire England and moved to Johannesburg, South Africa with his Rhodesian mother when he was 6 years old. His exposure to Zulu migrant workers during adolescence introduced him to the culture and music... show more
