Run the Jewels drop some major truth a year after Ferguson

“Riots work.” At least, that’s according to Run the Jewels. In a video exclusive to the BBC, Killer Mike discussed how the events that unfolded on the streets of Ferguson last year forever changed the city for the better. And Ferguson’s own law enforcement actually agrees.

Reporter Wesley Lowery on what journalists get wrong about police brutality.

I believe there are many honest and fair journalists here in America, who do support black lives and give the lie to the fraudulent assertions of the police.

But it is a drop in the ocean of endless lie of the media. Because it is interested, corrupt, dependent and false.

What we need is to use every occasion to tell the truth.
