Todays show touches on a strong topic that many can share their opinion on. A lot of the people we chose to speak about this topic had very good points and i am sure the rest of you that will watch will have your own as well. The reason of this topic being brought up is that fact that i myself joe v felt that bringing up the conversation about the black culture on how we view it, where we stand in the black culture and how we can make things better. From entertainment, social media & day to day education in the class room along with social issues that we face in the black culture. So here it is, the state of black america. I hope that you enjoy it and it opens your mind on what is at hand in the state of black america.

peace always,

THE RETURN!

I have spent a year and some change to figure out or should I say to dip into several things of artistic crafts and I have come to realize that I have been running away from what I love most. Broadcasting the truth and speaking to people about things that are not just relevant but what matters to the people is important to me. The voice of the people matters especially when all they have is social networks because some people are either afraid or scared to speak on what’s on their mind for more than 140 characters. My main objective is to be a broadcast journalist documenting everything of importance to me and those I see fit that has something that needs to be heard to the people in our generation and many generations after. Journalism is a art form of living a help freeing people’s minds by allowing them to think for themselves while speaking how they feel about what’s going on in our world. I am here to help take journalism to the next level and just give people good vibes and realness whenever I am seen and speaking on this show and other platforms that I will touch. This is my calling, this is my passion, it took me awhile to figure that out even when I do have so many ideas. I have to hone one craft which will open the door for the rest of the god given gifts that I have. And her I stand at 23 years old, ready to help change the world one voice at a time…

- sincerely yours,

Joe V!

Positive Distraction: Imani O’blige Creator of Dirty Tuesday

Being a positive Distraction is upon many things that distract from the negative. When i chose to interview Imani Oblige it was because she took an idea of something in her everyday life and made it her own, coming from a negative city with so many negative surroundings she wanted to build something pure from the ground up the others could look forward too. I, myself being into fashion i wanted to get to know her a little bit on how and why she came about the brand and name ” Dirty Tuesday “. I admire those who create something out of nothing. So, with style and grace Imani Oblige breifly gives us some words of how she got started with her OWN online boutique store.

OBAMA GETS RE-ELECTED! 4 MORE YEARS!

Four years ago we elected a human being who was fit for leading this country when it was in its darkest hours and lack of faith into what will be next for our country after having George Bush for a leader. Now, I’m not slandering George Bush because he has some positives in his run as president. Eight years of George Bush to mess up everything some people would say but to now have 8 years to clean up the mess with new and elected president Barack Obama there are many things we must do in order to maintain the changes that are necessary between the government and the citizens. WE ARE A TEAM, that’s why its the United Stated of America, the word UNITED should be into play as much as it is shown in our creed of U.S citizens. Barack Obama has made history twice now, being the first black president and being re-elected as a black president. My thoughts about him being our president once again is all in great thought and i am proud to him as our president again, not because he is black or African American. But for the fact that he is the perfect person, human being for the job of being our nations leader. Being black is and will also be an issue and a gift because ethic background is highly looked at since the 50′s and if those people could see this now they would be shocked and i always wondered what Martin Luther King and Malcolm X would be saying or thinking when this day had came. So many people believe in this president so much and people in the past who have had an impact on this nation have foreseen this as well, telling people that a black or African American will be president. Me as a young 22 year old witnessing this in my time gives me full confidence that whatever i want to do with my life i can make it happen because Barack Obama did and not just that but the fact that he did it his way. I believe and it is a known fact that  President Obama has been the most necessary president of our time, he has done more than become a president.

Positive Distraction: The Musical sound, information of two artist’s by the name of BrandNew Jersey & LoMax

Greetings all, this time around i got a chance to speak with local artist from my home state of New Jersey and got to know two artist’s by the name of BrandNew Jersey & LoMax. We took our interview outside during the nice weather and i asked both artist some questions on who they are as artist, what do their names mean, how they view hip hop and what could they bring to the table as up and coming artists in this new hip hop era of music.  I am a very avid listener of hip hop music and just music in general, so i hope you all enjoy what these two have to say about why they do what they do. Also during this interview i got to hear a freestyle by both artists and i enjoyed it, hope you do too. Be well & take care. – Joe V!

Positive Distraction: CLEON , Fashion Designer from Chicago comes to NYC to show off his latest clothing line.

 

Hello to you all,  this is Joe V writing to you all about another positive distraction of the week, During fashion week myself & my camera crew took a trip to New York City to interview some exciting and passionate people of fashion. The event was packed with different other designers who also took place during fashion week who was also excited to be in attendance. I got a chance to speak with most of the models who took part in wearing the clothes for Cleons clothing line, some expressed how they felt about the whole show and how difficult it was during the process of choosing the models from Chicago to participate in NYC’s fashion week. With that said, the clothing line was very interesting to my eyes and many others who have never seen Cleons fashion shows up close and personal.  Hope you enjoy the moment i shared with the models as well as the designer of CLEON’s Clothing line. Be well & take care. – Joe V!
