Here is #thedownload for May 16th.
Michael Hayes, a Memphis real estate investor, ran into trouble when he arrived at a house to do an inspection and a white neighbor called the cops on him. But when the police arrived, instead of being on her side they put her in check.
And Spike Lee had a few words for president Donald Trump during a press conference for his acclaimed film ‘BlackkKlansman.’
BlacKkKlansman includes a powerful ending messaging about Heather Heyer— the young woman who was killed when a White nationalist ran her over with a car, during the Charlottesville protests.
And in good news, congratulations to Richard “Tre” Jenkins, 18, from Philadelphia. Jenkins received a full ride to Harvard university!
Jenkins overcame poverty and bullies who once teased him for being a “nerd” by giving him the nickname “Harvard.”
