BTR News: Lil Wayne dropped and Tyler mad Mountain Dew ad pulled


Truth Minista Paul Scott and Robbie YasinWiseguy Alexander (ThreesixtyWiseguy) dropped in again to discuss the news of Lil Wayne being dropped by Mountain Dew and the rapper Tyler is angry that his Mountain Dew ad was banned for being racist. Why Lil Wayne, or his publicist, issued an apology, Tyler the Creator still does not get why his ad was racists and says Dr. Boyce Watkins is some "old dude" disconnected from the times.

Followed up on the news that the FBI added Black activist Assata Shakur to its most wanted "terrorist list" and erected "wanted" bill boards in Newark, New Jersey, where the film Mumia: Long distance revolutionary was banned from the only theater in town which is co-owned by the racially showcased Shaquille O'Neil.

BTR News: From the 1992 LA Rebellion to Chris Dorner


Join Scotty Reid as he reviews some of the day's political and social news headlines.

On April 29, 1992 after four officers were acquitted of assault and excessive force by a jury for their brutal beat down of Rodney King, outraged members of the Black and Latino communities took to the streets. The ensuing chaos became known as the LA rebellions that some call the LA Riots.

We want to look back at the events that sparked the uprising, the actions that were taken to suppress the rebellion and what steps Los Angeles took if any to address it.

I will then make the connection to the recent one man rebellion of Chris Dorner who allegedly was targeting members of LAPD and killed several law enforcement officers prompting one of Californias largest "manhunts" in history before Dorner was found and burned alive in a cabin in the woods.
