When a student has trouble writing a school paper on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the slain civil rights leader returns from the dead to help him out.
It’s a biopic! It’s history! It’s a music video!
It’s long and complicated, so we’ll let them explain:
Algodón y V.I.N.O. is a music video written and directed by Jeremiah Joe Ocañas that follows a 12-year-old boy’s days of working in the cotton fields of Danevang, TX, to following his dream of moving to California and today, while living that dream in the mural adorned Highland Park, he reminisces on the journey as an adult.
After his mother screams abuse because he won’t go to sleep, a Mexican niño’s prayer requesting God to Make Me A Saint gets answered in a ghoulish nightmare. [This video by Victor Orozco contains some NSFW adult language — pero en español.]
“Traveling to Nicaragua with his family, a young boy finds the world a weirder, scarier, and more difficult place. And filled, stuffed, and absolutely teeming with iguanas,” explains creator Miguel Jeron. The L.A. resident calls his video LA-GAR-TO. We do not know if he rolls his RRRRRR’s.
(PNS reporting from WASHINGTON, DC) White House sources have confirmed that Pres. Barack Obama will deliver an “I Have A Drone” speech Wednesday to commemorate the the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic “I Have A Dream” speech at the 1963 March on Washington.
The news has already sent shock waves through both the African-American and civil rights communities.
They are incensed that Obama, the first black president, has presided over the gutting of the Voter Rights Act, massive domestic surveillance, the use of drones on U.S. soil, record deportations, widespread human trafficking, the attack on women’s rights, the acquittal of vigilante killer George Zimmerman and an upcoming tsunami of voter disenfranchisement laws.
The President was also blasted by outspoken national civil rights leader Emiliano Zapata Shabazz-Jones, who called him a “Tom Turkey of avuncular proportions” due to his administration’s poor civil rights record.
