I GUESS THEY DON’T CARE IF YOU ARE ON THE RUN: BEYONCE AND JAY-Z SPECIAL DRAWS IS LOW RATINGS

After all of the hoopla over the On The Run Special airing on HBO, a lot of you didn’t even watch it. I must admit, I did not watch the special either. Only because I switched my HBO for Showtime so I can catch up on my Californication . I was not going to pay for 2 premium channels. Sorry honey I don’t get paid to blog. I blog because I love talking about TV. Enough about me, lets get back to Jay and Bey. Also I saw most of the tour on Youtube in bits and pieces. The power couple should not panic. Their empire is still strong. Let this be a lesson to the both of them, they just are not going to turn everything they touch to gold. Better luck next time.

I MATTER, WE MATTER: #IFTHEYGUNNEDMEDOWN

 
An unarmed Black teen was gunned down in Ferguson, Missouri. As usual the media responds. Depending on what channel you watch, you will get one side of the story. Within in every broadcast one thing remains the same. The images that are chosen to air when a black man or woman is involved in a high profile incident does not reflect who that person is or was.
Mike Brown lied dead in the street, and the world heard Ferguson, Missouri’s cries. When the media aired the story the image on the left was used to represent Mike Brown the recent high school graduate. In the days of social media any picture could have been chosen but the man in a jersey with his fingers up was the ideal image for the media outlets. Now the picture on the right was already on Facebook. Same person, perfectly different feeling you get from each photo.
In light of this tragedy, #IFTHEGUNNEDMEDOWN was created to question how would the media portray you  if you were gunned down. Shortly after this social media revolution started, more details about the Mike Brown slaying have been revealed. This post is not about what Mike Brown did or did not do, this post is about the way the media portrays our slain black men and women. If they gunned you down, which one of your pictures would the news use?
