ThaShow updates...

Hey everybody, thank you for clicking onto Thashow to check out our blog. I haven't posted in a while - I gave you all Sooo much last time that I wanted to give you a chance to let it all sink in.


I've got lots of topics coming to thaShow - stuff that you're going to need even MORE time to digest. I suggest you subscribing to us via iTunes - simply type our web address into iTunes OR subscribe to us via our Feed Burner link - Get informed about everything here at thaShow!

I think it's important to raise awareness - when people are aware they are no longer subject to become victim to the many traps that are out there - set up by people eager to decieve the uninformed, often for their own monetary gain.

We must be careful of these snakes... but if we are unaware of what the snakes look like, we will not know what to do when we are in the presence of one.

Lately I've been informing you about the snakes in the Media - just a reminder to you, that all mediums of delivering information are media; usually the more widely circulated a medium is, (ie: a magazine, a television or radio show) the more politicized it tends to become.

The snakes move in, waving candy at babies... luring them into their pocket books, and then taking control over the information they deliver.

When people are aware, they cannot be decieved - they can continue to enjoy their radio or television shows - their favorite magazines, without being tainted or controlled by the information contained in them.

Here at thaShow we've got lots of videos for you to enjoy - most linked from YouTube - and forthcoming are videos from Me and Friends sitting down to discuss the topics of the day.

Take some time now to browse through our blog, read what you have not had the chance to read, and watch what you have not had the chance to watch.

Bamboozled Revisited...

Saw a great quote in a video talking about the 'modern day minstrel show' a topic covered by the Great movie done by Spike Lee - Bamboozled - which I've talked about before here at ThaShow.

Here are some great clips from this film... I'll follow it up with a lil background on What the Minstrel Show is - all of this is in keeping with the theme I've started into, about Fox attacking Black America, about the media influencing society with misinformation... and hopefully with some inspiration to break Free.

Casting for the New Millineum Minstrel Show

... you've really gotta see this entire movie to fully appreciate that clip. here's more...

Timmy HillNigger Commercial

Now for some videos 'related' to the theme...

Invisible Black Face

Boss Nigger

You dont think stuff like that has an effect on people? ....

Bamboozled Scene - Mantan & Sleep and Eat

There are many more videos, better videos which bring the point home, showcasing how it's available in Today's Culture. So many times 'film media' has been used to encourage these views of black people... to get black people to see themselves as This Idea; and also to get white people to see blacks as That Idea; making it nearly impossible for the two sides to come together for a better solution.

So long as white people are influenced to believe that blacks are just 'naturally' like this, they will do nothing to help End much of the problem; a problem that is influenced by what's shown in our media, (movie, television, music, newspapers & magazines)

I remember getting into it breifly with a white girl who's pretty High Ranking @ The Souce Magazine. My mere suggestion that her decisions were leading to harm in the black community were shot down, with claims that Jay-Z is more responsable for what's in their magazine, than white people are; That if they endorse it, I should have no problem with it.

This is indeed the mindset that needs to be combatted, and enlightened;

Is anybody willing to help fight "the good fight" ...?
