“PEOPLE POWER” TAKEN TO THE ULTIMATE LEVEL OF EMPOWERMENT
Never has a social movement required so little to achieve so much for so many.
TURNING YOUR FACEBOOK PAGES INTO
A SOURCE FOR PEOPLE POWER
Even if you only have four, forty or four hundred Facebook friends you can make your page a source of power by sharing this pre-launch Indiegogo fund raising campaign with your friends. Our goal is 15,000 supporters to sign up with your email addresses to be notified once we have 15,000 supporters ready to join this historic endeavor. We’re looking for $20 from each person times 15,000, which totals the $300,000 we require to produce our CPA authored multimedia business plan. Most of the funds are to produce the sample television news day pilot, which is the centerpiece of the business plan.The uniqueness of the concept is what makes the television news day pilot necessary to dispel all speculation and show exactly what this all inclusive national cable news television network looks like.
Perhaps, what's even more at stake is the perspective and mentality we are introducing by example to African Americans. With this endeavor, we are showing black Americans there is no reason we can’t be the leading news media operation in America. News is about the dissemination of information, which is a matter of choice and selection. “The Big Cover-Up” video shows in real time how the mainstream news media decides what to report and how they manipulate the news, particularly as it relates to African Americans.
Black Americans have always conceded the national news media to white America, which is understandable but unacceptable particularly since we have exposed the mainstream news media's tradition and practice of deferring to law enforcement in race matters. We hasten to add, while this police and press complicity does not happen in every instant, it's often enough to show it's as real a tradition in the news media as the code of silence is in law enforcement. For those who never imagined black Americans having our own national news media operation, it shows that we can actually have an all inclusive leading national news media operation America has needed and has been waiting for.
As we indicated on our cover page, rather than counting on Oprah or other rich and famous black folk, we have come up with an even better funding concept using social media “people power.” By sharing this concept of unprecedented empowerment for black Americans with Facebook groups with followers large and small and the other social media platforms, we can present this never seen before opportunity for black Americans to finally have our own national news media operation. This converts those social media numbers to real unprecedented effective empowerment and advances us to full participation in the society.
For a race that excels in so many areas, the news media arena is the one key power base, with life and death consequences, in which we have yet to establish our own national news media presence and representation. More important, this allows us to impose accountability and address the race and social justice problem that has defied a solution up until now. By having our own national news media operation we no longer have to demonstrate for news media attention as our only option to bring about change.
Let’s be clear, integration has certainly contributed to our tremendous advancement. However, it has also been misleading in having people believing that the presence of blacks in law enforcement and the news media insures against racist offenses being engaged in those professions. Quite the opposite, career advancement supersedes racial crusading, which is glaringly illustrated in “The Big Cover Up” video. This is a concept whose time has come.
