The Source 5 Mics is now Nation19’s MCs List.

the-source-5-mics

Many years ago (If you were a Hip Hop head) you couldn’t wait to get the new issue of The Source Magazine. Published every month for over 20 years, The Source was the Hip Hop Bible. Today social media has changed the delivery of information of Hip Hop artists in an ever changing new way. Outlets like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and Youtube allow much more interaction with the artists you like, and don’t like. But there is still a glitch in the system that pushes the cream to the bottom so to speak. Clever marketing campaigns fueled with money, high profile billboards in major locations, expensive music videos and advertisements everywhere can push the not so talented artists to the top. This leaves the very talented artists that are not supported by money and labels to have to fight to get the attention of the public. Rapping about weed and strippers sells because the young RAP music consumers are being taught to gravitate toward a materialistic capitalist ideology.

What can we do:
As of today Nation19 reaches and engages more people on a weekly, monthly, and yearly basis than The Source Magazine on facebook alone.

the-source-5-mics-do-the-mathOur reach and exposure demands us to be responsible. The Source introduced Five-Mic rating when albums were king. If you had a dope album you could possibly receive 5 mics. At the time 5mics was more important than the Grammy’s to artists. Ice Cube’s first solo album, “All for One” by Brand Nubian, and Nas’s “Illmatic” are a few coveted albums to receive this rating.

But singles are king today not albums. This is where we built the 19 MC’s list from. It is not a contest.

the-source-5-mics-19mcs-list

As you know Nation19 is a curated news outlet phenomenon that continues to push the bar of consciousness in Hip Hop and in media reporting. We receive many request to showcase MC’s around the world but we never did it until now. Register for the list and let us know who are the MC’s the world needs to know about.

Shhhh….how to communicate privately on your phone with WhatsApp

nation19_blog-whatsapp

How do you communicate more privately when you know the revolution will not be televised? When we were in China for a month our main form of communication was WhatApp. It allowed us to talk to family, business partners, writers, researchers and friends over Wifi securely and free.

Now this popular phone APP (WhatsApp) has made big news when they announced that they were providing end-to-end encryption for all of their one billion plus members.

This is super dope for people who like privacy like us over at Nation19 Magazine. The best part about this new feature is that WhatsApp users don’t have to do anything in order to take advantage of this new feature. 

The first setting that you should enable, therefore, is the one that notifies you if a WhatsApp friend changes their device.

Why would you care? Well, because if someone removes the SIM card from your friend’s phone and uses it in another device, they could impersonate your friend on WhatsApp. Enabling a setting in WhatsApp will give you notice that you may be communicating with a fake imposter.

Here is what you do.
Go to the “Settings” icon at the bottom right of your WhatsApp screen, open up the Account settings area, and turn on the “Show Security Notifications” setting.

whatsapp-settings-1

Hold on potna…you not finished yet. lol

The next time you are face-to-face with your WhatsApp friend, and you want to increase your WhatsApp security even more, here are the simple steps to do so.

First, make sure that WhatsApp has access to your camera. You may have already allowed this when you installed WhatsApp, but if you did not, it is an easy setting in your Applications area of your phone.

Next, open a conversation with your friend in WhatsApp and then select the person’s name at the top of the conversation. This will open the contact window for that person. Near the bottom of that screen you will see a setting for Encryption.

whatsapp-settings-2

Tap on the encryption field, and you will be presented with a screen that displays a QR code as well as a 60-digit decimal code that represents the contents of that QR code.

whatsapp-tomato-plant

At the bottom of the QR code screen, there is a link that will enable you to scan your friend’s code, and they can do the same for your code. This is why you need to allow camera access in WhatsApp, even if only temporarily.

That is all there is to it. Now, when you communicate with your friend, you can be more confident that they are who they say they are – although, of course, it’s always possible that the person you are speaking to has failed to keep a close eye on their smartphone or has failed to set a strong passcode.

In our view, you should tighten security like this with as many of your WhatsApp friends as possible.

WhatsApp and WeChat (China) are both great app to communicate with end-to-end encryption for all communications to so many people. For those of us who wish to have authenticity when communicating, WhatsApp has gone that extra step to ensure that as well.

Thats whats sup…oops we meant…thats WhatsApp!

The Mystery killings of Darren Seals, Deandre Joshua, and Shawn Gray.

nation19_blog-bars4justice_darren-seals

There is an ongoing mystery surrounding the shooting of Mike Brown that is still unraveling. The recent mysterious murder of Darren Seals who was found shot in his burning car is yet another mysterious chapter of Ferguson and Michael Brown. 

Many know we report allot about police vs community and racially motivated incidents in the US. Recently we have been noticing a hidden hand that is manipulating the media by planting stories, distorting facts and funding so-called activist and racial conflicts. We cant prove anything yet but we will soon.

Last year we were in Ferguson documenting the unfortunate one year anniversary of the killing of teenager Michael Brown by police Darren Willson.  While there we had the freedom (rental car) to explore and that is what we did. We went everywhere…our crew even got arrested, shot at, and got sick from the tear gas. During the last hours of this two day crazy trip we dashed to the actual site where Mike Brown was shot. Their was flowers in the street apparently where his lifeless body laid. Next to the flowers were teddy bears and a Contruction cone which were positioned in the center of the street as light traffic passed every few minuets. As we pulled up to a parking lot directly across from the site we were approached by BBC Television and asked to sell our footage of the arrest and protest that had just taken place an hour ago with prominent activist and multi religious clergy. At that protest which was directed at the St Louis Department of Justice, no other media outlet was brave enough at the the time to jump over the police barricade like Nation19 did…so yeah we had the best footage. We denied the offer to sell the footage and proceeded to film the street. While we were changing the batteries to our cameras, two very tall large muscular white men wearing casual attire and matching baseball caps walked up and started taking pictures next to the makeshift memorial in the center of the street. But they were smiling and acting like this was a fun place to take pictures instead of the gloom and sad feeling we felt. It was weird to say the least. They acted like we were not even there. After they took a couple of pictures smiling and laughing they walked away to the same parking lot we were parked with BBC television and they drove away in a federal licensed sedan type car. We stared to walk near the street where the flowers were and an unknown black man in his late 20’s or early 30’s stood and watched us. He didn’t talk right away. He asked us where we were from…then he told us that there is more to this story than what is being played on the news but its a dangerous story to tell. He told us of a couple eyewitnesses to the shooting and friends of Mike Brown who disappeared and/or were murdered and we were shocked. We didn’t know what to make of the information and when we raced to the airport we lost one of the SD cards in the rental car never to be found that had the last few minutes of this trip.

Currently we are traveling in Asia and news has been very difficult to confirm, process, and distribute because we are about 15 hours ahead of the US. But when we finally found out about the death of Darren Seals, a Ferguson activists whom we got a chance to meet, we were saddened. He along with many others are a part of the film #Bars4Justice. So here is what we know. Maybe putting this info out can help unravel more about what is really going on behind the scenes in Ferguson. 


Deandre Joshua
20, was shot once in the head and then set on fire inside his car. He was the only person killed during the fires, looting and riots that shook the city after a grand jury declined to indict a white police officer in Mr. Brown’s killing. He was a childhood friend of Dorian Johnson, the friend who was walking with Mike Brown at the scene of his killing.
ferguson_0002_deandre-joshua


Shawn Gray
23, was last seen on Thanksgiving and was reported missing by his family on Saturday, police said. Gray was found in the river about 4:15 p.m on December 3rd 2014 Wednesday near the Landsdowne Avenue overpass. The autopsy could not determine Gray’s cause of death, officials said. Gray’s death has been labeled “suspicious,” and homicide detectives were investigating. There is plenty of speculation that Shawn Gray was a witness to the Grand Jury in the Michael Brown case.
ferguson_0000_shawn-gray


Darren Seals
St. Louis County Police say the remains of Seals’s lifeless body, which had at least one gunshot wound, were found early Tuesday morning September 6, 2016 inside his vehicle in Riverview (6 miles away from Ferguson), which had been set aflame. Police are investigating his death as a homicide. On the night of the grand jury decision, Seals stood with Brown’s mother in front of the Ferguson Police Department building as the news that Wilson would not be charged was announced. His scene had various pieces of debris from the vehicle and what appeared to be shell casings had been left behind by police investigators.

#Bars4Justice doc highlighting hiphop activism and police brutality in Ferguson, Missouri gets US and Canada distribution on 2 year anniversary of Mike Brown’s death

nation19_blog-bars4justice_mikebrown

Hip Hop Association and Third World Newsreel (TWN) have secured US and Canada distribution rights to Directors Queen Muhammad Ali and Hakeem Khaaliq’s Award winning (#Bars4Justice) documentary short – A Film shot in Ferguson Missouri capturing a glimpse into the new civil rights movement through hiphop with Talib Kweli, Common, Cornell West.

Khaaliq shot the film in Ferguson Missouri during the one year anniversary of Mike Brown’s death. Mike Brown was an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Missouri shot to death by Ferguson officer Darren Williams August 9th 2014. The film documents a benefit concert held in his commemoration orchestrated by Talib Kweli to raise money for Mike Brown’s Family. “We initially thought it would be a good idea just to capture such a great event, not knowing that it would later be produced as a film” said Khaaliq.

Roselly Torres, Director of marketing and distribution for Third World Newsreel said, “I’m so happy we found this film. TWN has been collaborating with Martha Diaz of the Hip Hop Association for many years to distribute social issue Hip-Hop media.” Khaaliq and Ali’s #Bars4Justice is a perfect fit with appearances by Academy Award winning hip hop artist/ actor Common, Talib Kweli, Immortal Technique, among many more. Some activists’ appearances include Cornell West, Bree Newsome, Rahiel Tesfamariam, Rev. Renita Lamkin, and Rabbi Susan Talve.

#Bars4Justice is set for release to the educational market in the US and Canada August 9th 2016, the 2nd year anniversary of Mike Brown’s death. Ali and Khaaliq aim to help educate and address injustices caused by a lack of representation in the justice system from the eye of their lens. “Both directors will be available for presentations along with their film, ” said Torres.

The film is financed by Nation19, YoSoy and with the participation of Co-producer Ronald Sims.

Jesse Williams speech at the 2016 BET Awards may offend some people.

nation19_blog jesse williams BET2016

In case you missed it, Jesse Williams dropped so many gems in his acceptance speech at the 2016 BET Awards. “If you have no interest in equal rights for Black people then do not make suggestions to those that do, sit down” said Williams.

Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams has been very vocal about social injustices against the Black community. In his recent interview with The Guardian he speaks about his childhood “My parents were both activists and I really connected to the social justice movement. Growing up in Chicago, that was a big part of the community that we were in and the people that were in our house,” he says. “I also lived below the poverty line for my entire childhood.”

He also spoke on his Biracial look “To some people I might be a celebrity because I’m physically attractive. We are programmed to believe that someone is attractive because they told you that blue eyes are hot. I am not going to participate in that shit,” he says. “I aim to do what I can with what I have. And I have my [looks] – you know, European beauty standards give me access to things.”

Watch what he said at the BET awards here:

 

 

 

ROOTS is not the roots of black people (Snoop on Slavery movies)

nation19_blog-roots

So the lame people over at History Channel assembled a star studded cast (Forrest Whittaker, Lawrence Fishburn, T.I.) to regurgitate Alex Haley’s fairytale book and TV series Roots. But this time the people are boycotting this socially orchestrated tale of black suffering and white Masa’s sipping mint julep on the front porch. It’s interesting that History Channel has never created anything promoting black excellence before…why now…why this???

Let’s not forget Black Roots or Black History is actually endless and does not start when white folks stole us from Africa. Some of the roots of our past were found in Ethiopia dating back 3.2 Million years by Dr. Donald Johnson. This planet is scattered with the remains of the Nubian Dynasties of upper and lower Egypt, Mali, Timbuktu, Olmec, Pacific Islands, Moors, Asia and the other great and marvelous civilizations developed, engineered by very, very dark skinned people. (Not just African)

No slaves came from Africa. European Slave traders kidnaped farmers, architects, scientist, healers, astronomers, mothers, children, fathers. We were not slaves. Our Roots are the blackness of space and the universe it self…all life comes from darkness.


Here is what Snoop had to say about Roots.

How to Race Bait…or Race Baiting 101.

nation19_blog-race_baiting
Race Baiting 101

It’s called Race Baiting when people who are not Caucasian speak about the atrocities, and social engineering that were done to them by Europeans. This cry of Race Baiting is predominately distributed by whites in America, or the people who are are afraid of messing with the status quo. Instead of acknowledging those wrongs that plague those communities and Nations till today and working to correct the wrongs the oppressors descendants (not all of them) try to suppress this information by engaging in useless word play, soulless patriotism and Semantics.

The disproportionate killings of unarmed black people by police, criminalization of black and brown men, lack of access to fair and equitable education—those aren’t the problem. Nation19 is.

Unlike other media outlets we have NO advertisers or GRANTS dictating our agenda. We are independent. We travel, research, document, distribute the truth from all over the planet.

#1 Denver Hip Hop Radio icon DJ Chonz exits KS1075fm to pursue the things that matter the most!

nation19_blog chonz ks1075 kqks denver1

May 2, 2016 (DENVER) — After nearly 15 years Mario Rodriguez, best known as DJ Chonz, exits (KS-1075) KQKS Denver and continues marketing and music under DJ Chonz and Radio Bums. He will continue his long established pursuits in Colorado making and advising on music and hip hop genre influencers across the nation, as well pursue new interest as a communications director for longtime friend, Arn Menconi.

The Denver native worked his way through the ranks from an underground Hip-Hop show on Sunday nights to become one of Denver’s best known hip-hop DJ’s. He climbed his way from the underground, to obtaining weekend shifts as a mixer on Saturdays and Sundays to becoming the first mixer to DJ live daily on commercial radio at 5pm. Chonz severed as co-host for nearly a decade until he became the main host 4 years ago heading the helm of the 3-7pm time slot.

Chonz leaves the station on a high note as station KQKS in afternoons reached #1 according to Nielsen Arbitron ratings in the Denver market in his demographics for 18-34 adults for March 2016. A Denver native from Denver’s north side, Chonz was known on air not only for his DJ skills yet for his charismatic attributes of being a Denver native talking to his fellow native audience. He opened the doors for many DJs to be heard commercially on radio such as DJ Bedz, DJ Sabotage, DJ Staxx, KDJ Above and many more.

Under the DJ Chonz and Radio Bums brands, he will continue to DJ corporate and nightlife events along with working with his existing clients at Radio Bums Marketing. DJ Chonz was named Top 25 young professionals for 2015 from Colorado Biz Magazine, Chonz exclaims his gratitude to the Denver listeners from allowing him to be a part of their lives daily for so many years. “They watched me grow from a young kid to a young man with a family, I am grateful for that.” Chonz notes if the opportunity arises to do radio again he will consider it time permitting. 
Information on his latest interests and for bookings please go towww.djchonz.com or e.mail booking@djchonz.com

Chonz involvement in the community has always been his passion –
from re-creating block parties in the Five Points area to helping other DJ’s become better known to sponsoring B-boy events in Denver as young people assembled in Denver for world qualifiers. He and his brother Delfino Rodriguez received a Proclamation from the City and County of Denver for Hip-Hop week because of their dedication. He has consistently volunteered his services from DJing and speaking engagements at youth centers, middle schools and high schools. This will be his third year giving out the DJ Chonz scholarship to CU Denver LYNX Summer Arts Camp – For more info click.

Given his passion for his community and helping others seek their voice, when the opportunity arose to take a position as Communication Director for longtime friend and U.S. Senate candidate Arn Menconi, he took advantage of the new endeavor. Chonz states “I am extremely grateful to have this opportunity to help my friend Arn get elected to fight for the young people of the world. He’s served youth all over the nation for two decades, now we need to get this movement into the U.S. Senate.”

“Chonz is a visionary and leader in communications from the heart to the masses of voices many thought could never be heard. I’m humbled to have his thought leadership to make a difference for the people not power elites” said Menconi.

Prince’s death is way too strange!

nation19_blog_prince chemtrails

Today April 21, 2016 Prince passes away at 57 years old. To us Prince’s sudden death is a little strange? A talented freedom fighter and another “King” not of pop, but of the arts who stood for black independence and fought against black injustices. In 2014 Prince regained ownership of his catalog from Warner Bro Records similar to Michael Jacksons Independence and ownership of Sony. He also left ASCAP four years ago and said he is no longer beholden to the performing rights organization — allowing him to act more boldly on these issues than artists who may still be under contract. In 2015 he unveiled his protest song “Baltimore” addressing the injustices of police violence, brutality, and killing of Freddie Gray and the ensuing riots in the Maryland city. He stated that black people should own their own police departments. In 2009 he addressed the ongoing spraying (Chem trails) of predominantly black and poor communities and how they affect us all in his song entitled “Dreamer”.

“Oh, well, when I saw the “State of the Black Union,” Dick Gregory really moved me and a lot of my friends. I show it to everybody who comes over the house, especially White folks, because they need to hear that, so that they know more about all of us. Because what he said affects all of us.

He said something that really hit home about this phenomena of chem trails and when I was a kid, I used to see these trails in the sky all the time and I’d say, “Oh, that’s cool – a jet just went over.” And then you started to see a whole bunch of them and the next you know, everybody in your neighborhood was fighting and arguing and you didn’t know why, okay?

And you really didn’t know why. I mean, everybody was fighting. So he started riffing about the chem trails and he started to say things that hit home so hard, and I would recommend that everybody try to get what he said online or wherever, and try to get a copy of it and just listen to it, because I was so moved that I had to write the song”.

Prince


“Dreamer” Lyrics

I was born, raised on a slave plantation
In the United States, of the red, white and blue
Never knew that I was different, till Dr. King was on a balcony
Lyin’ in a bloody pool
I expected so much more from a loving
A loving, loving society
A truthful explanation, you know what
I got another, another conspiracy

If it was just a dream, listen, call me, call me a dreamer too

With more rewards and accolades, then anyone before or after
21st century, oh what a shame, what a shame
Race, race still matters
A race to what, and where we going
We in the same boat, but I’m the only one rowing

Last time I checked, you were sleeping, but you can call me a dreamer too
(What’s up with this)

Peanut butter logic, served on a bed of lies
Don’t go down too easy, when you’ve seen your father cry
Have you ever clutched the steering wheel in your car too tight
Praying that police sirens just pass you by that night
While the helicopter circles us, this theory’s getting deep
Think they’re spraying chemicals over the city
While we sleep

Come on, I’m staying awake
you can call me a dreamer too
(Ahhh, I got one eye open for these devils)

(Wake up, wake up)

(I pledge allegiance, to..)


Nation19 also addressed these “Chemtrails” in an article which can be found in our printed edition entitled “Lil’ Chem“. See full article below:
lil chem nation19

While you may be listening to Beyoncé, watching Nikki, or following the latest thing the
Kardashians are wearing… or not wearing, you are being sprayed by Lil Chem. No this is
not the rapper Lil Kim…

Better known as Chemtrails (Chemical trails) or Geo-Engineering, these are  white trails left by aircraft with a toxic bath of sub-micron metals, chemicals, and biological agents deliberately
sprayed in your neighborhood at high altitudes that persist for hours and that, with their criss-
cross, grid-like or parallel stripe patterns, eventually blend to form large clouds.

What the @#$%! are they spraying?

What is Lil Chem made of?

Aluminum
Arsenic
Barium salts
Cadium
Desiccated human blood cells
Ethylene
Lead
Lithium
Magnesium
Manganese
Mercury

Lil Chem’s top 9 promoters:

1. Originally, the US Air force (1996) declared to own the weather by 2025, but Evelyn Rothschild and others have taken a big nip of that ownership already.

2. E.L. Rothschild LLC, a private investment company led by Chairman Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and CEO Lynn Forester de Rothschild, announced  on January 31, 2011 the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire a 70% interest in Weather Central, LP, the world’s leading provider of interactive weather graphics and data services for television, web, and mobile.

Rothschild is Lil Chem’s (chemtrails) top promoter as a major holder (along with his banks) in Defense contractors “Raytheon” and Lockheed Martin. Ever since both of these private defense contractors have been patenting weather modification, the “forecasts” we see on the news are more or less the “scheduled” weather.

3. Philip Lader (CFR-member) is a key promoter. In addition to running the Public Relations for Evergreen International Aviation (aluminum chemtrail sprayer – free to fly anywhere at any time in the US)… Lader is a director of UC Rusal, the largest Aluminum producer in the world.  Nathaniel Rothschild is a big UC Rusal investor.

4. The Royal Society of London: This includes decision makers in Westminster and Whitehall; business leaders; research funders and bodies such as the European Commission, OECD, World Bank and UN agencies“.

5. Bill Gates has funded Lil Chem with millions of dollars and is a proud advocate for geoengineering.

6. The Rockefellers play a significant role with Lil Chem: “Indeed, the Rockefeller Foundation alone
are major players behind the anthropogenic global warming “activism” and propaganda” says Prof. James Tracy of Global Research. And in 2009, John D. Rockefeller IV read a bill in the US Senate to legalize Lil chem. What thereafter happened to the bill is unclear.

7. The US government is an avid Lil Chem promoter. In fact, Lil Chem has support from the National Academy of Sciences, the U.S. intelligence community, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NASA, and the Department of Energy. The approximate start date for the project was March 2013; it is to last 10 years.

8. China is also in on Lil Chem’s promotions. Within five years, China intends to use a dubious geo-engineering technology known as ‘cloud seeding’ to induce more than 60 billion cubic meters of additional rain each year, its government said in January. This involves rocket-launching chemicals such as silver iodide into the clouds to allegedly boost rainfall.

9. Russia has been pressing for Lil Chem’s (chemtrails) recognition since 2013– but it is to
remain a “secret”.

Lil Chem on tour?

She is on tour and being sprayed in all 50 U. S. States, and ALL NATO countries are now being
sprayed.

What is Lil Chem doing to us?

Short Term Effects of Chemtrails:
Allergies, Asthma, Flu-like symptoms, Headaches, Heat flashes, Metallic taste in mouth, Nausea and
Vomiting, Nose bleeds, Respiratory problems, Short term memory loss, Suicidal thoughts, and many other symptoms.

Long Term Effects of Chemtrails:

Acid Reflux, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), Alzheimers, Aluminum build up in Pineal Gland, Autism, Blood in the Urine, Cancer Depression, Heart Disease, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Insomnia, Learning Disabilities, Lung disease, Lupus Erythematosus, Multiple Sclerosis Parkinson’s disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Tinnitus (ringing in the ears – 700 million cases of Tinnitus reported worldwide) and many other symptoms.


This leads to the question again, was Prince’s death mysterious? Can a flu really kill you or even last for 3 weeks? Was he speaking out too much like Michael Jackson did before his death? Comment and let us know what you think.

Brussels, Belgium airport attack False Flag / Hoax?

Earlier today it was reported there was a terrorist bombing in Brussels, Belgium which has since been blamed on ISIS via CNN and major news media outlets. Is this yet another hoax, put on by the Freemasonry controlled Western Governments of the world, for the sake of scaring the people and blaming it on the false middle eastern boogie man known as “ISIS”?

What we learned at Trump’s rally in Arizona.

nation19_blog_trump2_az

Yesterday we decided to attend the Phoenix (actually Fountain Hills) rally for Presidential hopeful Donald Trump. He was joined by Arizona’s Sheriff, Joe Arpaio who has not been favorable toward the Mexican community. We saw all the reports of clashes with Trump supporters and protestors on the news so we were prepared for a crazy day. Below is a play by play of what happened and what we learned.

    1. To be official or not: We decided to be official so we got tickets in advance. Fortunately the tickets were free and we loaded the tickets on our iPhone Passbook app. Later we found out that they only allowed certain people in so obtaining the ticket at this event was a waste of time.nation19_blog_trump2_az

    2. Come Early: We didn’t anticipate the traffic and got stuck for along time just trying to get close enough to walk. Later we found out the Trump protestors blocked the highway. (salute!…wait)
      nation19_blog_trump_traffic_az


    3. Be careful where you park: We initially parked with all the rest of the cars behind some businesses but a white guy told us to move our vehicle or he’ll have it towed…only us. We moved the car and found a public spot very close. Next time we may Uber our way there and back.

    4. Trump supporters are almost all Caucasian people who express they are fed up with the current state of US economy all the way to border security. They tend to blame allot on Native, Mexican, Liberals, Muslims and Black people. Almost every Trump supporter we encountered just wants the OLD America…whatever that is.
    5. Trump Protestors/demonstrators (Arizona) are comprised of Native American, White, Black, Mexican, Muslims and are typically young. The main objective of the protestors was to show solidarity against Trump’s rhetoric and inflammatory speeches. In attendance were representatives from Puente Arizona, #BlackLivesMatter, and UniteHere (Who have been following Trump demanding equal rights to form a union at the Trump Hotel in Vegas). nation19_blog_trump_az

    6. The Police were not biased. We were waiting for them to act crazy or side with Trump supporters but we didn’t see that all yesterday. However, they were ready and dressed in riot gear.

    7. The Clashes: Every clash we filmed and saw was fueled by the Trump supporters instigating the protestors. We also saw some KKK thug type individuals among the crowd agitating the Trump demonstrators. Most of the clashes were verbal and non violent unlike the rallies we saw on the news. Things could have been worse but none of the Trump supporters seemed willing to go that far yesterday.

What we learned: Trump rallies are a small peek into the mindset of America. At times It felt like we were at a KKK rally in Mississippi. Trump can’t fix America and neither could Obama. You get a sense of prophecy after watching young white men spit at and call Black and Native people racial slurs for 3 hours. For poor people, and non whites, America hasn’t changed since the 60’s and things WILL get worse with either Trump, Bernie, or Hillary in the office. Sorry.

“I do not see how we will ever solve the turbulent problem of race confronting our nation until there is an honest confrontation with it and a willing search for the truth and a willingness to admit the truth when we discover it. – Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. – Grosse Pointe High School – March 14, 1968

How to travel in one of the most dangerous cities in the world and still be fresh.

Colombia is known as the 5th most dangerous country on earth, and Bogota the capital of the country is labeled one of the most dangerous cities in the world. When you think of Colombia, few people relate the country to coffee, but rather drugs, Pablo Escobar, murders, cartel, etc. On the contrary, the city is full of people just like any city and/or state in America, where the rich live in the North and the poor live in the South. One of the differences in these poor areas is that everyone has a business whether it be a full art gallery made from chalk on the ground in the middle of the street to your local restaurants. Nation19 was in Bogota, Colombia shooting the #WarOnUs documentary with grammy award winner Rhymefest and Hip Hop Activist JasiriX. So while we are here we had to keep you up on game to whats really real. One of the similarities to America however is that Colombia is a Capitalist run country. With that being said I would say Bogota, Colombia is like a more tropical Harlem Newyork. Below are some of the good, the bad, and the ugly aspects we found out in Bogota Colombia:

Good: You don’t need to be scared to come to Bogota because of the “zika” virus. If you didn’t know, that is a propaganda scare tactic to get people to run and volunteer to be lab rats for the latest vaccination experiment which by the way actually has the virus in it…nation19_blog_bogota_lady

Good: The fruit here in Bogota, Colombia is the best! Its actually like crack lol I wonder if that was the real drug that they found out here lol.

Bad: Not really bad but bad for you if you don’t speak any Spanish at all. Spanish is the major language spoken here. You will find some english speaking people working at hotels, but very rarely if at all will you find people on the streets that speak english. I suggest traveling with someone who knows the language, or bust out rosetta stone and learn before your trip. You can learn the basics of spanish in about 3 months.

Ugly: The people in Bogota are nice, but as I mentioned it is similar to newyork. Its a big city full of sky scrapers, lots of foot traffic, vehicle traffic, and bumpy roads. So getting around could be tedius if you don’t speak the language. I suggest not taking a taxi. Take a taxi only if its registered (booked directly from the hotel or airport). Most museums in the city are near each other and in walking distance. If you are able to get around by foot, it would be the most convenient and safest along with taking the bus.

Good: There are plenty of vendors down town to get gifts for friends and family.

Bad: Although the people are nice, there is very much oppression on the poor in the city. Average monthly income is about $200 a month. In some of the poor areas, petty theft is common especially cell phones. Phones are commonly stolen to resale for cash. So limit your selfie game in poor areas lol

Good: This is a city full of art and culture. The art displayed all over town through gigantic murals to Graffiti art are heavily influenced by hiphop. There is even a huge mural of Asada Shakur right down town. Art is expressed freely throughout the town. We were told it is the news of the people. Not from mass media. So, much of the art displayed are also political statements.

Good: Many of the bad aspects of the city can be avoided with common sense.
