It’s happening, it’s really happening. PlayStation has confirmed that the long-rumored PS5 June event will take place.

Next week Sony will be giving eager gamers a “look at the future of gaming,” the company announced on both Twitter and its official blog. President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, gave PlayStation fans something to look forward to saying, “The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe.”

Ryan also pointed out in the statement that the games will come from studios “newer and older,” “larger and smaller,” and will “showcase the potential of the hardware.”

He further added that the lack of physical events due to COVID-19 gives his company an “amazing opportunity to think differently,” while also promising it will bring gamers “closer than ever before.” While there is no clear indication that we will get to see the PS5 console, he made sure to point out that the upcoming event “is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you.”

So it’s evident that Sony will be stretching this out till the PS5’s holiday 2020 release.

As to what games we can expect to see, speculations range from a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, Final Fantasy 7 Remake to confirmed titles like Godfall, Fortnite, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

We will just have to wait and see June 4 at 1:00 PDT. Be sure to check back with us for our recap and reactions to the PS5 games reveal event.

Sunken Place Soldier Candace Owens Forgets Her Hair Is 4C, Calls Black People “Chimpanzees” For Riots

Sunken place ambassador Candace Owens is giving us the opinion that no one asked for.

According to published reports, on Thursday (May 28) Candace Owens took to YouTube to live stream and discuss the current events going on across the country involving Black America’s reaction to there continued police brutality that has plagued the country for decades.

During the live, Owens calls out Black America for celebrating NBA superstar LeBron James, who she mistakenly calls a “football player”, and shunning notable contributors like Dr. Ben Carson and Condoleeza Rice for their educational status and economic point of view.

“To be Black, you need to celebrate LeBron James. You’ve got to say that you want to be a football star, right? LeBron James the greatest, right,” Owens said. “When you see someone like Dr. Ben Carson, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, you call that person a coon, because they betrayed you. Do you want to know why? Because they’re talking about economics. They graduated, and they’ve got tons of degrees. They’re not being Black enough. Don’t listen to them. Listen to LeBron James, when he throws on the Beto cap and tells you that we’re literally being hunted down, right? Because he’s not educated, right? Celebrate that.”

As if her ideology couldn’t get any worse, Owens then proceeds to call protestors “trained chimpanzee” for being upset about the social injustices.

“That’s how you have to be Black”? Listen to your psychological conditioning,” Owens continued. “If to be Black, you can’t speak in proper English, or you’re “acting white.” Right? To be Black, you instantly have to jump up like a fucking trained chimpanzee – excuse my language – like a trained chimpanzee every single time the media runs a story, and act angry, and riot, and talk about how pained you were to see this happen to Black people, but keep your mouth shut, right, when it happens Black-on-Black because if you talk about the Black-on-Black crime, you’re a race traitor, right?”

Owen’s reaction towards Black protestors, much like those of the bigots she represents, is a stark contrast to her reaction towards the white-armed Militia who stormed the capitol building in Michigan over stay at home order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Not only did Owen’s sympathize with the white protestors, but her Twitter account was suspended for encouraging the militia to get violent.

“Apparently @GovWhitmer believes she is a duly elected dictator of a socialist country. The people of Michigan need to stand up to her. Open your businesses. Go to work,” she tweeted. “The police think she’s crazy too. They are not going to arrest 10,000,000 people for going to work.”

In addition to calling protestors “Chimpanzees”, Owens falls deeper into the sunken abyss compare the systematic oppression that African Americans face in America to the Scottish separation from England in the 17th century.

“Scottish people were severely behind the English people, just in terms of everything. And David Hume inspired and uplifted and challenged the Scottish people by saying if we want to get ahead, we have to learn English,” Owens said. “In a matter of years, in a matter of decades, the Scottish people passed the English people in engineering, and in the sciences. And it’s because they challenged themselves to be better, and not to be worse. They didn’t pretend that somehow having a broken language, having broken-down families was a symbol of who we are. And that is so unique to Black America. I won’t subscribe to it. People say that’s how you have to be Black.”

“Burn Hollywood burn I smell a riot”

Those are the lyrics that opened Public Enemy’s “Burn Hollywood Burn,, the first song that Ice Cube appeared on after he left NWA in 1990. Now as Minneapolis burns with protests following the tragic murder of George Floyd celebrities such as Lebron James, Beyonce, Barack Obama, John Boyega and others have become very vocal speaking against the aggressive police brutality on black people that led to the Black man’s death.

Ice Cube, who built his career on saying “F*ck the Police” canceled his Good Morning America appearance on Thursday. He cited the recent f*ckery in America as the reason for his cancellation tweeting: “I apologize to everyone expecting to see me on Good Morning America today, but after the events in Minnesota with George Floyd I’m in no mood to tell America, ‘good morning.’”

The tweet garnered almost 900k likes and 135k retweets of support but, of course, there were quite a few critics of the tweet:

Ice Cube later tweeted about the riots posting:

It seems that New York City might be on the brink of reopening within the coming weeks. But according to state officials, the new normal might not feel normal at all.

As spotted on Raw Story, New York State has a plan in mind for flipping the switch on The Big Apple. On Thursday, May 28 Governor Andrew Cuomo hosted a press conference. While the politician has delivered daily updates regarding COVID-19 this presentation had some notable points of difference. The Democrat was joined on stage by Brooklyn natives comedian Chris Rock and actress Rosie Perez. The trio encouraged citizens to wear masks and other forms of PPE to curtail infection spread. “Everybody, please, spread love the Brooklyn way, get tested, wear a mask,” Perez said. “Our governor is a rock star and he makes me proud to be from New York.” Chris also added on saying “Everybody that can get tested should get tested as soon as possible.”

Cuomo went on to further advise that everyone mask up for the betterment of mankind. “They are amazingly effective and we’ve made them mandatory in public settings,” Cuomo said of face coverings. “But when we’re talking about reopening stores and places of business, we’re giving the store owners the right to say if you’re not wearing a mask you can’t come in.” Yes you heard that right – you might have to wear a mask to go inside a coffee shop for your morning bagel.

While data shows that COVID-19 infections in New York City are slowly tapering down he still remains cautious. “We have a large state, and the COVID virus tends to attack those who are seniors and those who have underlying illnesses and will remain a cause of death for the foreseeable future, I’m afraid to say,” Cuomo said. “But we want to get this number down as low as possible.”

Resurfaced News Clip From 2016 About Police Brutality Goes Viral Because…RELEVANT

After the video of the senseless murder of George Floyd hit the web and viral sparking protests broke out in Minneapolis, the second video of a young man speaking passionately to a news reporter began to circulate with many attributing the clip to Minnesota—but the clip is actually four years older.

The viral video that has been posted on various celebrities pages including Diddy and Shaun King is actually footage from an interview given by Sedan Smith in 2016 after his older brother Sylville Smith was murdered by Milwaukee police.

According to published reports around the incident, Smith’s passionate speech was given after the city of Milwaukee underwent riots for two days behind the lack of response and arrest of Black police officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown who they claim murdered Sylville Smith in cold blood while he was no threat and on the ground.

Smith was initially pulled over under the pretense of suspicious behavior when he and his friend were pulled over. Smith, who did have an extensive criminal record, and his friend fled the vehicle before Smith was cornered in an alleyway. It was there that details of the shooting became unclear. According to Milwaukee police at the time, Smith, who was armed, turned towards officers to surrender before being shot. After falling to the ground it was reported that Smith received a second fatal shot.

During the trial, body-camera footage from another officer was released, showing that Heaggan-Brown shot Smith twice, with the second bullet being fired into his chest after Smith hurled his weapon over a fence and had his hands near his head. Smith was on the ground when he received the fatal shot.

Dominique Heaggan-Brown was cleared in the death of Sylville Smith but was convicted in a separate case of felony sex crimes and sentenced to three years in prison before his release earlier this year.

Since the initial recording of the heart-wrenching video, not much has changed and that’s why that video resonates today because Black and Brown people all over America are tired of trying to fix a system that was designed to tear us down.

Don Lemon Tee’s Off On “Birther-In-Chief” Donald Trump “No One Wants To Hear From” [Video]

Donald Trump’s illustrious history of racism has been well-documented in both print and social media over the decades. From his death penalty calls for the Central Park Five to his Birther Conspiracy suggesting President Barack Obama wasn’t an American, Cheeto Jesus has proven time and time again that he isn’t too fond of people of color.

Now that he’s trying to weigh in on the murder of George Floyd in his own half-assed way, CNN’s Don Lemon has had enough and took to the airwaves to call out the Racist-In-Chief and his administration for attempting to get involved in the protests and riots engulfing Minneapolis. After U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald held a news conference on Thursday (May 28) in which she seemed pleased to have personally spoken to U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, Lemon went off on the response to George Floyd’s murder from the powers that be.

Are we going to have the same legal system for police officers that we have for the average adult? Now for the Attorney General, I watched and I know she has a tough job.

As long as we are being honest right now, nobody wants to hear from the White House or the Attorney General right now. No one wants to hear from the man who wanted the death penalty to come back from the Central Park Five. No one wants to hear from the man who says that the former president was not born in this country. No one wants to hear from the man who said there are very fine people on both sides.

Do you understand what I am saying? No one wants to hear from the person that they perceive as contributing to this situation — situations like this in this society. Not directly, but allowing people like that to think they can get away from this.

No one wants to hear from the birther-in-chief, from the sons of bitches-calling person who says that when athletes are kneeling for this very reason. No one wants to hear from that.

Eeeeexactly! All of that.

Continuing to rage against the two-tier justice systems that works amazingly for white folk but punishes minorities to an obscene degree, Don explained what he felt should’ve been said at yesterday’s press conference.

Unless you’re going to come out and say I understand how African-Americans feel in this country, I understand the mistakes I have made with African-Americans in this country. I understand there is an election coming, but I just don’t want your vote, I want you to understand that I know where you’re coming from, we don’t want to hear that. That is the God’s honest truth. So that was a misstep on her part.

Applaud that man.

Man-Child Donald Trump Reacts BIGLY By Signing “Useless” Excutive Order That Targets Social Media 

Donald Trump Signs  Executive Order In Response To Twitter Fact-Check

Source: Pool / Getty

Donald Trump is not here for being fact-checked when he puts out false or misleading information.

Yesterday (May.28), the man-child, Donald Trump, reacted BIGLY to Twitter fact-checking his fugazi tweets that inaccurately stated “widespread fraud” takes place with mail-in voting. Doing what he does best, he signed an executive order that put tech companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google as well as the internet law that gives them legal immunity from the content users may share on their platforms.

We also want to point out Trump’s response to Twitter was much faster than his response to battling COVID-19.

Anyway, at the White House, in the Oval Office where he does nothing, Trump said, “We’re fed up with it,” before he signed the executive order. He also added:

“That’s a big deal. They have a shield. They can do what they want. They’re not going to have that shield.”

After Trump “read” and signed the EO, The White House released the final order on its website. It basically states that it could “pare back platform liability protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.” Under the act, companies are given broad immunity from liability for the content users share on their platforms. The executive order allows the Commerce Department and the Federal Communications Commission to reinterpret the law and gives the Federal Trade Commission the ability to create a tool for users to report bias online.

Twitter, who recently censored but not delete one Trump’s tweets for “glorification of violence,” responded to Trump signing the executive order Thursday night in a tweet.

“This EO is a reactionary and politicized approach to a landmark law. #Section230 protects American innovation and freedom of expression, and it’s underpinned by democratic values. Attempts to unilaterally erode it threaten the future of online speech and Internet freedoms.”

Facebook — who recently came under fire after its CEO and founder, Mark Zuckerberg caped for Donald Trump — also issued a statement.

“Facebook is a platform for diverse views. We believe in protecting freedom of expression on our services while protecting our community from harmful content including content designed to stop voters from exercising their right to vote. Those rules apply to everybody. Repealing or limiting section 230 will have the opposite effect. It will restrict more speech online, not less. By exposing companies to potential liability for everything that billions of people around the world say, this would penalize companies that choose to allow controversial speech and encourage platforms to censor anything that might offend anyone.”

Many legal experts believe Trump’s executive order won’t hold up in court, but speaking with Vox, National Review editor Charles C.W. Cooke states this is just Trump basically trying to stick it the libs and his base will eat it up.

“It’s an example of a cultural power that Trump tries to wield. And so he thinks that people will look at him running against Joe Biden and they’ll say, well, I need that guy fight my corner against all of this left-wing cultural power that is unchecked.”

“Whether or not his voters are on those social media platforms, that willingness [to fight] which he will recount these rallies and his emails and press releases and TV appearances, I think appeals to a lot of people.”

Whatever the case it’s clear Donald would rather focus on the fact Twitter is done with his shenanigans than helping the country he is supposed to be in charge of during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We Have The Right To Fight Back!”: Colin Kaepernick Supports George Floyd Protests

Colin Kaepernick has proven that he is in support of Black liberation by any means necessary, as evidenced by his activism that essentially cost him his NFL career. Continuing his stance against the injustices faced by Black people in America, the free-agent quarterback tweeted in support of the protests that have been sparked by the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.

Thursday afternoon, Kaepernick took to Twitter and shared words of encouragement to the protesters gathered in Minneapolis and across the nation who are outraged at the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless other victims of murder fueled by racism.

“When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” began Kap’s tweet. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.”

He continued with, “We have the right to fight back! Rest in Power George Floyd.”

Friday morning, the skirmishes between Minnesota state police and protesters are ongoing in South Minneapolis, while other smaller actions have been taken in Los Angeles and other major cities.

Let It Burn: Protestors Set Fire To Minneapolis Police Precinct During Third Night of Protests 

George Floyd Protestors Burn Down Minneapolis Precinct

What once stood as a symbol of the unrest in the city of Minneapolis now is a burning reminder that Black people are fed the f**k up.

A third night of protests broke out and once again and got violent as protesters continue to demand that four police officers involved in the fatal arrest of George Floyd be thrown in jail. It was evident in previous nights that the 3rd precinct in Minneapolis was the focus of protesters as they gathered there, demanding justice for Floyd and his family.

Thursday (May.28) following a press conference from FBI prosecutors that basically said nothing but urging people to be patient and promising justice but at a snail’s pace clearly didn’t do nothing to quell the rage still brewing.

Overnight protestors finally got past the barricades set up to protect the precinct. Around 10 pm central time, the Minneapolis Police Department evacuated employees leaving the building open for demonstrators to go in set off fireworks inside setting it ablaze.

Demonstrators celebrated the 3rd precinct burning by letting off fireworks. A liquor store and Arby’s restaurant in the area was also set on fire. Around 1:30 am, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey revealed during a press conference that he made the decision to evacuate the precinct after “it became clear that there were imminent threats to both officers and the public.” He added, “The symbolism of a building cannot outweigh the importance of life, of our officers or the public. Brick and mortar is not as important as life.”

Frey has also been very vocal and feels the officer should be arrested. Until that happens, it’s safe to assume the protests will continue. The liar-in-chief, Donald Trump, spoke on the “rioting” last night and let out a tweet that was rightly flagged by Twitter for “glorifying violence” against the protesters.

We urge the protesters to remain peaceful and stay safe as they continue to demand justice for George Floyd.

George Floyd & His Killer Once Worked Security At The Same Club

As the protests and riots over the murder of George Floyd continue in Minneapolis, more details continue to be revealed about the history of both Floyd and one of the killer cops, Derek Chauvin, and as it turns out they actually shared some backstory together.

KSTP-TV is reporting that both Floyd and Chauvin actually worked security at the same south Minneapolis club at the same time for a minute before Chauvin eventually ended up taking Big Floyd‘s life.

George Floyd and now-former Officer Derek Chauvin both worked security at the El Nuevo Rodeo club on Lake Street, according to Maya Santamaria. Santamaria owned the building for nearly two decades, but sold the venue within the last few months. 

“Chauvin was our off-duty police for almost the entirety of the 17 years that we were open,” Santamaria said. “They were working together at the same time, it’s just that Chauvin worked outside and the security guards were inside.” 

While one might think that the two might’ve had a personal beef (especially with the MAGA inspired racist hat that Chauvin has been seen wearing in a picture circulating around social media), Santamaria says she can’t be sure they knew each other as she employed a few dozen security guards including off-duty cops.

Regardless of whether or not they knew each other, the public is still demanding justice for Floyd and until Chauvin and his cop killing comrades are in charged, indicted and convicted, expect civil unrest to continue. But now that police have release heavily redacted versions of the body cams policed used while murdering Floyd, it seems like we’re bound to once again watch police get away with murder.
