Roland S. Martin Launches Innovative Online TV Channel Black Star Network

Marking three years as the definitive daily digital source for news and information from an unapologetically Black perspective with his groundbreaking daily digital show #RolandMartinUnfiltered, award-winning journalist Roland S. Martin has announced that he is launching the Black Star Network, an OTT network aimed at African American consumers. BSN will debut with original content on Sept. 3, 2021, the third-year anniversary of #RolandMartinUnfiltered.

A hybrid OTT media network, BSN is subscription free, and ad-supported. The network will stream content focused on political, business and cultural insights and perspectives of Black thought leaders, influencers and opinion makers. The flagship show, #RolandMartinUnfiltered, has a social media following of more than 3.5 million, including nearly 800,000 Youtube subscribers. The daily show has generated nearly 509 million views and more than 1.5 billion minutes watched since its inception.

#RolandMartinUnfiltered's exponential growth is a direct reflection of Martin’s efforts to serve its audience with content and information focused on the unique concerns of Black Americans.

“African Americans are voracious news and information consumers, and they are demanding more content from their perspective that address issues that they care about,” said Martin, a digital pioneer who launched the first Black news source audio and video podcasts more than a decade ago.

FOUNDER OF BLACK-OWNED SNEAKER COMPANY TARIK EDMONSON SEEKS TO EMPOWER ATHLETES WITH NEW NCAA RULING

Under a recent Supreme Court ruling, the National Collegiate Athletic Association can no longer place restrictions on education-related benefits for student-athletes. NCAA athletes can now profit from their name, image, and likeness with unlimited incentives.

Before the decision, student-athletes were not allowed financial gains from the billions of dollars in revenue that sports brought to American colleges and universities. Student-athletes can now reap financial benefits from their talents early on. But with the new judgment in place, however, many people like Tarik Edmonson, founder of Nagast Footwear, fear that student-athletes may be taken advantage of by large corporations and he aims to educate them on the possible pitfalls.

“Everybody knows that these large shoe companies treat athletes like modern-day slaves,” says Edmonson. “They make billions of dollars off the athletes and only give the athletes a fraction of the profits.

He continues, “You got athletes who make companies $10 billion a year but the athlete only gets a billion. They are rich, but why leave $9 billion on the table? You did the work and the sweat, and God gave you that talent. So it should be the other way around.”

BLACK BILLIONAIRE, ROBERT F. SMITH, LAUNCHES HBCU TOUR TO UPGRADE CAMPUS CYBERSECURITY AND TO HELP STUDENTS FIND AN ALTERNATIVE WAY TO PAY FOR COLLEGE

Acclaimed writer and Broadway playwright Lorraine Hansberry once posed the prolific question: what does it mean, “to be young, gifted, and Black?” Nearly 60 years later, the sobering reality that persists for many Black American students seeking a college education in navigating the challenges of being young, educated, Black and broke.

Overburdened with crushing, disproportionate levels of student debt, they are playing catch-up from the first day they step foot onto a college campus. As a result, they start their careers strapped with significantly more educational debt than most white college graduates.

More than 70 percent of Black students go into debt to pay for higher education, compared to 56 percent of white students, according to the American Association of University Women. The Association’s recent report also found that Black women carry about 20 percent more student debt than their white counterparts, owing an estimated $41,466 in undergraduate loans in comparison to the $33,851 that white women owe.

WOMAN JAILED AT 14 FOR ALLEGEDLY SHOVING WHITE TEACHER’S AIDE RELEASES MEMOIR DETAILING LIFE IN THE AFTERMATH

On September 30, 2005, 14-year-old ShaQuanda Cotton attempted to enter a school building to take a prescribed medication before classes began. An encounter with a teacher’s aide on her way to the nurse’s office that morning led to her arrest, and months later the teen was adjudicated delinquent by a Lamar County court for assault on a public servant.

What began as an ordinary day at school resulted in her being removed from the care of her mother and sentenced to an indeterminate term of up to seven years in a Texas juvenile detention facility. Cotton, now 30, recently published a personal account of the ordeal after years of being subjected to rumors and vitriol in the small town of Paris, Texas.

Cotton’s story made world headlines in 2007 after local and national media reported on her detainment as well as the racial disparities within the Lamar County criminal justice system that many suggest played a role in her harsh sentencing. Just months prior to Cotton, who is African American, being sentenced, the same judge sentenced a white juvenile to probation for a more serious crime. Cotton had no prior criminal record, whereas the white teen did.

Mortgage Pro Timothy Griggs Is Banking On His Innovative App To Help Reverse The Foreboding Forecast Of Zero Wealth In the Black Community.

Black Median Wealth By 2053 Is predicted to be zero.  A Black Enterprise, article stated "You can have a glamorous six-figure salary, advanced degrees, and an executive title at a large corporation and still be impacted by the negative net worth virus that is prevalent in black communities. According to The Road to Zero Wealth report published by Prosperity Now and the Institute for Policy Studies, the median wealth of black Americans will fall to zero by 2053 if current trends continue."

However, a sharp decline towards a median Black net worth of zero won't happen on mortgage pro and tech innovator Timothy Griggs' watch.  If Griggs has his way, despite gloom and doom predictions of disappearing Black wealth, his new technically advanced The Good Steward Financial System (TGS), app will help reverse the course of poverty in Black communities.

Timothy Griggs is a real estate mogul and the CEO and founder of The Good Steward Financial System - TGS App.  Griggs is nationally releasing the latest version of his app this week. He is also an experienced mortgage broker with Griggs Mutual Realty & Management a company in Eastvale, CA.

Due in large part to various forms of overwhelming debt, misunderstandings in credit management, and less opportunity in owning and capitalizing on real estate - white wealth is 10 times median Black wealth!    However, Timothy Griggs isn't focused only on credit problems.  He is instead developing a great solutions based online tool.

An Airborne Illness Possibility, Aerodynamically Fashioned "With Persistent Mutative" Transmittable Omnipresence (AAIPADFWPMTOP). Warning, Increased Concerns
: More Unvaccinated Americans and Children are Sickened or Dying from this most Virulently Contagious Disease. "We Need Healing and a Spiritual Awakening, Right Now in 2021." This time of corona-virus disease (2019, 2020 and 2021) has “interrupted and intersected” eternity, and created the “NEW NORMAL, ABNORMAL.” When time intersects with eternity. --- Fr Stephen Wang

The Coronavirus Ebb Tide is ever so Frightening! Today, absolutely, people who are living in the COVID-19 worldwide need to inspirationally protect and love their earthly lives
. First, let us read and focus on the number of our fellow Americans, who have suffered and died from COVID-19, circa January 2020. America, August 15, 2021: 37,435, 835+ Confirmed Coronavirus 2019-nCoV, Delta Variant- Driven Stunning Cases: 637, 439 + Deaths and 30,144, 609 + Recovered, USA (Worldometer). Since January 20,2020, an age of “A New Abnormality.”

The Coronavirus, as previously written: 
"Globally, the Covid-19 infective agent is sickening and killing human beings on planet earth at an alarming rate. The deadly COVID-19 pandemic started in 2019- 2020 as An Airborne Illness Possibility, Aerodynamically Fashioned 'With' Transmittable Omnipresence (AAIPADFWTOP). Unfortunately, our day-to-day realities of joblessness, emotional dilemmas; the continuance of police brutality against minorities, various environmental calamities; man-made infrastructure catastrophes, financial bankruptcies, and unemployment, are causing HAVOC, widespread discontent, homelessness, and DEATH!"  Somehow, through it ALL, “We Americans will need to focus on building generational wealth, instead of generational debt.” --- Avril Smalls, Scoop Publication, Global News, June 8, 2020.

Some 20-21 months later and trending, the name is still changing: An Airborne Illness Possibility, Aerodynamically Fashioned "With Persistent Mutative" Transmittable Omnipresence (AAIPADFWPMTOP)

NEW MEMOIR FROM ARMY CHAPLAIN DR. JAMES DARREN KEY SHARES A MESSAGE OF HOPE, FAITH AND MORE

Author and U.S. Army chaplain James Darren Key highlights 40 lessons and stories about race, love, honor, and faith to inspire people during changing times in his new memoir A Long Way from Crenshaw: Lessons and Stories about Race, Love, Honor, and Faith for These Changing Times (published by WestBow Press).

With the purpose of being accessible to all, the author writes in a conversational style. Exploring how life can change, and not always positively, he demonstrates how the human spirit can overcome those circumstances.

Additionally, Key speaks candidly about growing up Black in California in the 1970s and 1980s. Wanting to empower others, the author examines his own weaknesses and fears.

Through this study, he hopes to help people:

• recognize failures and successes along their journey;
• approach race and diversity with sensitivity and courage;
• heal from an unhealthy relationship before starting a new one;
• face trials and controversy with unshakable faith.

ROSA HIGGS REPORTEDLY IS 1ST BLACK AUTHOR TO CREATE PHONICS WORKBOOKS THAT DRASTICALLY IMPROVE READING SKILLS IN 30 DAYS OR LESS

Rosa Higgs, a teacher from Berkeley, California, who has proven why phonics instruction matters. Her phonics workbook series, entitled Read in 40 Hours or Less, are designed to help Black students learn to read well and beyond grade level in less than 40 hours of direct instruction.

Across the country, students are experiencing a K-12 crisis in reading skills. In the state of California, millions of dollars are spent every year on education, but students and teachers are overwhelmed by COVID-19 and distance learning and the lack of improved reading skills for many vulnerable Black students proves it.

The coronavirus was a test of America’s ability to provide quality and equitable education to all students. The virus wrecked the school system with unfathomable momentum highlighting known disparities of Black students' access to computers, the internet, trauma, and basic needs such as food and adequate shelter. The Read in 40 Hours or Less workbook series can take schools from inadequate to extraordinary by improving reading skills for our vulnerable Black and Brown students.

HIGHLY REGARDED RETIRED POLICE OFFICER CHARLIE ROSE REVEALS IN NEW BOOK "WHY COPS KILL AND HOW TO STOP THEM"

Meet Charlie Rose whose new book "Why Cops Kill and How to Stop Them," reveals his personal story as a police officer many years ago in the Greenwood area of Tulsa, Oklahoma (formerly known as Black Wall Street). He also shares his keen viewpoints on why he believes that police violence is at an all-time high today.

He says that he actually never thought of becoming a police officer; It was his childhood dream to be a meteorologist. Growing up in Oklahoma, he was fascinated by the rolling squall lines ahead of an approaching storm and had to be made to come in the house out of the rain.

He was never able to pursue him and after graduating from high school he entered the Air Force where he was trained to be a Communication Specialist. After leaving the service and a number of dead-end jobs, a friend of his father told him if he could get him hired as a police officer if he could pass the department’s entrance exam.

Living To Die, You Decide, COVID-19 Delta Variant, A Pandemic: "Unvaccinated" Unseen Enemy

By HBCU ECSU Wellness Writer Dr. Charles L. Singleton

COVID-19 USA Since January 2020: nearly 36, 000, 000 + cases, 630, 000 + deaths, and 29, 700, 000 + patients have recovered from this viral illness.  Worldometers COVID-19 Data, Daily Updates and Projections 2021.

In addition, on July 30, 2021, Weekly Polling Roundup: Pollapalooza's Geoffrey Skelley reported that, "The delta variant is spreading rapidly in part because around 30 percent of Americans remain entirely unvaccinated." Currently, various data and media sources projected a 25%+ chance of the unvaccinated becoming infected by the delta variant. More specifically, "The delta virus is 50% to 60% more infectious than the alpha variant," Gregory Poland, M.D., Infectious Diseases, Mayo Clinic.

COVID-19 Complications, Possibly, an Early Graveside Celebration of Life:  And, today the unvaccinated USA citizens are running the risk of prematurely dying and crossing eternity's "Separating Line, and leaving this old world behind."  Risk takers, please let it be said, "The bed you rested in last night could become your cooling board, and the quiver you slept under a winding sheet." "You better preach and hold your hope!" Traditional Hymn Choir Song, Prayer and Sayings.

Readers, on Thursday, April 23, 2020, I first described the Coronavirus (COVID-19), as An Airborne Illness Possibility Aerodynamically Fashioned With Transmittable Omnipresence (AAIPADFWTOP).  And 16-17 months later in August 2021, I have added the word "Persistent," because of the mutative and life-threatening effects of this death-driven-infective agent (AAIPADFWPTOP).

Whereas, "PESTILENCE" is COVID-19 Complications, according to my friend Richard Sullivan. Furthermore, Dr. Anthony Fauci recently said, "In June 2021, statistical 99.2% of COVID-19 U.S. deaths involved those who were unvaccinated." Yes, think about wearing a mask (re: mask mandates and vaccinations). The possible health benefits of simply wearing a mask and getting vaccinated could save your life and the lives of your family members, loved ones, friends and associates.
 
Now educate yourself and others about the "Persistent" COVID-19 Delta Variant Complications: An Airborne Illness Possibility Aerodynamically Fashioned With "Persistent" Transmittable Omnipresence. View and read "Delta variant: 8 things you should know about this COVID-19 strain.” UCDavis Health. Updated July 23, 2021. Click here.

As described by Wikipedia research, hopefully, Covid-19 does not pattern itself in the manner of the disabling poliovirus (poliomyelitis), which crippled millions of humans dating back to pre-literary history, some 3.3 million years ago.  Polio has caused both paralysis and death throughout human history.  For example, an ancient Egyptian artifact from the 18th Dynasty seems to represent a polio victim, circa: 1403-1365 BCE.
