VIDEO: Earth: She’s Alive, Beautiful, Finite, Hurting…Worth Dying For

I wasn’t going to write anything for Earth Day today, especially since I already wrote about he point of it all and because I take issue with the holiday. I could do without the pseudo-awareness being peddled out there here but I felt moved to write this when I came across this video. A nice way celebrate Earth Day is by actually remembering the planet we live on as opposed to clutching your reusable shopping bag or going to an oxymoronic Earth Day sale. Before descending into something schmaltzy this video offers of a reminder of how high the stakes are and how much of a threat environmentalism is to business as usual.

The photo above is via NASA, which is good for something after all and it couldn’t be big enough but click on it anyway, remember how grand this planet is, and how tiny we are.

VIDEO: Lobbyists Back Off Push For Voter ID And Stand Your Ground Laws

This video from Democracy Now! brings together voting rights, so-called Stand Your Ground laws used in defense of slain teen Trayvon Martin‘s killer George Zimmerman, persons of color, and more. What’s important here is connecting the dots so you can more effectively “be the change you want to see”.

Description: After a massive corporate exodus prompted by growing scrutiny of its activities, the secretive right-wing American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) has announced it will stop pushing so-called Stand Your Ground and voter ID laws. Our guest Lisa Graves says this is an attempt by ALEC “to try to keep its donors and try to have the press move along.” She notes, “ALEC’s broader agenda, which it calls its jobs agenda, is extraordinarily extreme itself,” noting that one of its bills would cut off one’s right to sue if one’s loved one is killed by a drug approved the Food and Drug Administration, even if the drug is later recalled.

Graves is executive director of the Center for Media and Democracy, which built “ALEC Exposed,” a website showcasing more than 800 model bills the group has pushed in states nationwide. We’re also joined by Rashad Robinson, executive director of ColorOfChange.org, which has criticized corporations for working with ALEC to pass laws that hurt people of color, young people and the elderly, especially voter ID laws. “You can’t come for black folks’ money by day and try to take away our vote by night,” Robinson says.

VIDEO: Dick Gregory On The Killing Of Trayvon Martin

If you know anything about me you know I’m a big Dick Gregory fan. He’s an activist, comedian and a nutritionist. I’m not sure how much more Black and Green this guy can get. This video is from March 24th were thousands of people gathered at Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC to demand justice for Trayvon Martin.

Ever the observer, I love the seemingly unrelated points he makes about the Trayvon Martin case.

VIDEO: #TupacBack- Tupac Performs At Coachella 2012

Sure he’s been dead for more than 15 years but how could something like that stop a guy like Tupac? A Tupac hologram showed up to Coachella, joined Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, and performed “2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted” and “Gangsta Party”. The trippiest part is he yelled out the “Coachella” by name even though Coachella was started in 1999 and Pac died in 1996. Details, details…

The World Doesn’t Owe You Anything

“The world doesn’t owe you anything. It was here first.” ~ Mark Twain

Just something to think about. Let’s take it one step further. The world, or the Earth, has given you so much: food, air, water, life changing thoughts and ideas. What do you owe the Earth? What do you owe the world?
