T.D. Jakes is hosting his second town hall style election-themed episode discussing the aftermath of the Presidential election and our divided nation. Realizing the importance of continuing his conversations with all Americans to hear ALL of their voices, Jakes invites guests from all backgrounds to this groundbreaking episode. Wisdom and hope is what the country needs right now – and T.D. Jakes is the preeminent voice.

In this episode, Jakes looks deeper into what is troubling this country and why we need to move forward – including emotional discussions about 9/11 and his own family. It’s a time to come together – but how do we get there?

“Great leaders don’t pick sides! They unite and build bridges and connect us. And they focus on what we have in common rather than what we have to divide us. At the end of the day what we want…is for someone to unite us.”

Jakes leaves us with this powerful message:

“I have to believe that there is a way forward. For this is my home, is it yours?”

unnamed

The Revolution Will Not Only Be Televised, But Also Provided In Surround Sound With An Appropriate Soundtrack.

As we embark on the most important election of our lifetime, Raheem DeVaughn and Wes Felton, collectively known as The CrossRhodes are back with the, The Great Debate mixtape. Available for a free download via Datpiff.com, The Great Debate mixtape speaks to the importance of social consciousness and political awareness.

The Minister of Domestic and International Information of The CrossRhodes states:

The CrossRhodes Manifesto

The intersection of our vision, dreams, beliefs and reality. We are taking back the linage of what they have stolen. We also acknowledge our immediate ancestors who used the Rhodes piano to create soul music.

Our logo captures the intersection of 4 elements of life for what it means to be human, men, Black, fathers, lovers, believers in God and artists.

1.The gun reflects the fact that we see our art and community at the Crossrhodes of both the living and dying by the gun which is reflected in both the  growing BLM movement about violence against our community and the continued work we have to do about the violence we inflict on each other in our community.

2.The heart reflects the love which is at the root of our music and the movement we are building as men who love, feel, care and struggle.

3.The fist reflects the beauty and power of our commitment to our struggle.  We understand that we come from a long tradition of elder and ancestor artists. A legacy which we have an obligation to continue, transform, and pass on to the next generation.

4.The microphone reflects our art, culture and music which when crossed with love and consciousness is what can use to teach, heal and rebuild our community.

We Don’t Believe You, You Need More People: Melania Trump Raked Over The Coals For Blatantly Plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s 2008 Speech!

W

hen Melania Trump took the stage last night and delivered her opening speech chances are she thought she knocked it out the park. Well that wasn’t the case after the potential (hopefully not) First Lady got called out for blatant plagiarism of Michelle Obama’s brilliant 2008 DNC speech.

Last night journalist Jarrett Hill noticed the huge blunder as he was live tweeting the RNC. He was a huge fan of Michelle’s speech and memorized the key parts that Melania’s speech used word for word. He threw up his observation on Twitter and it immediately caught everyone’s attention.

Of course the Trump campaign has denied any wrong doing in the situation and of course continued to dig their hole even deeper by blaming Hillary Clinton.

Right but ummm the evidence is very damning, here’s the side by side comparison.

Hillary’s strategically did this huh? Riiiiigghhhht

Twitter wasted no time in reacting, they immediately started up the #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes hashtag and went in on her. Here’s just a sample size of the electronic ether sent her way:
