Sunday Sundown Rundown - 8/6/17

3 Up

1. Baltimore Cease Fire Movement - Our inner cities desperately need help. The Cease Fire Movement in B'More is a nice one that hopefully gets the pendulum swinging in the other direction for positivity for the next generation. 

2. Cute Kid Fist Bumpin' - In a heated week of social justice topics that left me deflated and annoyed with mankind, this video gave me all the feels that life can be so awesome. Why can't we be like this?

3. Austin Jackson - Man, this catch was so sick. So, so sick. 

3 Down

1. Affirmative Action - After a New York Times article broke the story that the current administration will look into the possible discrimination of whites in the college admissions process, we saw plenty of opinions that came out in support of this. Shockingly, there are people who believe whites are discriminated against. White privilege such a crazy thing, man. So crazy. 

2. Pretending to be Black - So just when some are trying to make an opinion of special treatment for underrepresented communities and that "affirmative action is discrimination", you have this guy who comes out about his story of pretending to be black to get into med school. Ugh. Where to begin on this...apparently we've all forgotten the what exactly affirmative action is, and it's purpose. 

3. Colin Kaepernick Employment - The community within the NFL has made it's statement loud and clear when it comes to the employment of Colin Kaepernick, and it's one of the growing reasons I'm done with the league. I'll say my peace this week regarding this matter.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/11/24

3 Up 1. Super Bowl - That was an entertaining game! I'm definitely your football casual, so appropriately adjust your take in reading this. I rarely dive into the Super Bowl other than for social interest and custom, but I genuinely was glued to my seat watching this event - game and halftime performance. Well done, NFL.  Also, a record of 123M people watching it - that's pretty good, too.  1a. Patrick Mahomes/Chiefs - Congratulations to the Chiefs on a rarity in the NFL - back-to-back titles! Even more so, is the props towards Mahomes. Again, a super causal here, but that dude pulls me in. He's amazing.  1b. Usher Performance - I was all about it. Amazingly, I'm now the age of the target demographic of the NFL for these halftime shows. Regardless, Usher killed it!  2. Annie Ray - We often don't see these Grammys handed out, but kudos to Annie Ray for receiving a Grammy for her amazing work in music education. Definitely give this a quick read.  3. Record Stocks -
