For millions of immigrants entering the United States in the early twentieth century, Ellis Island was the gateway to a new life. Upon arrival, some travelers were approved, but many, due to illness or simply fatigue, were denied access and hospitalized.
Ellis, a fourteen-minute film directed by JR and written by Academy Award winner Eric Roth, tells the elusive story of countless immigrants whose pursuit of a new life led them to the now-shuttered Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital. Following its opening in 1902, approximately 1.2 million people passed through the facility, where the Statue of Liberty can be seen from the windows.
Donald Trump cannot catch a break. Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim has become the latest to cut ties with the real estate mogul after his anti-immigrant remarks during his presidential campaign announcement speech.
Telecoms magnate Slim is the world’s second-richest man, with a net worth of around $71.1 billion, according to Forbes. Trump is at number 405 on the list, worth $4.1 billion.
The latest development comes as a television company controlled by Mexican billionaire, Carlos Slim, has cancelled a project with Trump that was said to be worth millions.
This is the third company to cut ties with Trump, who is seeking the Republican nomination for the November 2016 presidential election.
Ora TV, the production company co-founded by Slim and TV personality Larry King and funded by Slim’s America Movil, had been working with Trump for several months on the project.
As a result of Trump’s comments, NBC removed Trump’s “Miss USA” from their programming following in the footsteps of Spanish-language broadcaster Univision, who said it would not air the “Miss USA” pageant.
Macy’s Department stores have also decided to discontinue their business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy’s since 2004.” Macy’s issues a statement “We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico. We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation.
An Ora TV spokesperson released the following statement,
“Trump was totally out of line…working with someone so closed-minded was not going to work.”
He added that the comments were racist and hurtful.
Lets take a look at who Carlos slim helu is …
Carlos Slim Helu is one of the three richest men in the world, despite changes in the Mexican telecom landscape, where he has prospered greatly over the past two decades. A new anti-monopoly law is driving some of the shifts. In June 2014, he spent $5.6 billion to buy out AT&T’s 8.3% stake in pan-Latin American wireless carrier America Movil — by far Slim’s most valuable asset. He and his children now own 62% of the company. AT&T then became an America Movil competitor in Mexico, when it purchased wireless carrier Grupo Iusacell from Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas Pliego in January 2015. Outside of telecom, Slim took private his listed real estate company, Innmeubles Carso, paying minority shareholders $450 million in December 2014. A month later, he became the largest shareholder of The New York Times, with a nearly 17% stake, by exercising warrants to buy more shares. Slim also holds a controlling interest in industrial conglomerate Grupo Carso, financial venture Grupo Financiero Inbursa and infrastructure development and operating company Ideal.
Hip Hop artist David Banner sits down with Vlad Tv and speaks on this generation being lost and lacking back bone. Banner touches on multiple topics about race, the use of the N word, rules to the game, culture, lifestyles, manhood, brainwashing and Hip Hop websites responsibility to step up and promote better a better message to the youth.
Multihop.tv : will always promote positive content and shows that will feature real positive Hip Hop artist from all elements of the culture, its our responsibility to send the right message to this new generation of kids that may not understand that the Rap game and Hip Hop culture are different. Hip Hop is a lifestyle and culture of elements that represent : Art, Dance, deejaying, emcees, music, fashion, knowledge, and Rap is just commercial music that the majority of the time spreads a negative message glorifying selling drugs, violence, gangs, exploiting women, waisting money on fashion and jewelry, cars, liquor, weed, etc … its time mainstream media and people stop using Hip Hop’s name to describe whats really know as the Rap game.
Salute and Respect to David Banner he drops wise words in this interview.
Vlad tv interviews Hip hop’s revolutionary urban activist emcee Immortal Technique, the two discussed how mainstream media has taken citizens’ awareness of national problems to new levels of distraction. What some people fail to realize, is that issues like police brutality have been going on for over half a century, and now that everyone has smart phones to record incidents, lets not forget this has been going on way before technology could help capture footage of these incidents taking place.
In this clip, Immortal Technique gives us another look at the disturbing realities of America’s society (past and present), advantages that certain citizens have in this day and age, and why in the end, America’s claim of being a “free society” may not be all that accurate. Educate yourself on whats really happening in America.
In the wake of what is the Charleston church shooting
America paints a picture of terrorism all over the world but allows it to exist on our very own soil for years an turns a blind eye to radical groups like the KKK, Council of Conservative Citizens and many others groups that carry the similar message of pure evil racism, hate groups that target blacks, Jews, Hispanics, East Asians and Middle Easterns. These groups should be looked at as terrorist and no different then how america views al qaeda or any terrorist group out there that poses a threat to Americans. But some how are allowed to exist in this country which is sad and the real problem.
Nas speaks on these issues below
America has spent so much time, money & resources fighting wars abroad and completely fell asleep at the wheel of the war brewing within our cities, neighborhoods & blocks. We are supposed to stand for freedom & equal opportunity. That’s supposed to mean MORE than just words but the actions of late just don’t speak to what we are supposed to stand for. This is BIGGER than BLACK and WHITE. This is about America selling a false dream. Now we’ve obviously progressed since the inception of this nation but we took our eye off the ball and it feels as though things are moving backwards. As a black man, I find it difficult to understand that our biggest export (our American culture) comes from us. The people in the streets… The way the world dresses, talks, what they listen to, what they watch… That all comes from us. How can we be the ones responsible for America’s biggest export & fear for our lives like we shouldn’t belong here. I don’t have all the answers nor do I believe anyone does, but we need to have conversations around how to improve as a nation. How do we show any ounce of progress that keeps hope alive. This is too big of a problem to be solved overnight but there needs to be some questions answered to get things back on the track of righteousness. Amazing people died for this country. We owe it to the past, present & future to come together and move this country in the right direction. This is my home just like it is anyone else’s. RIP CRISPUS ATTUCKS. FIRST MAN TO DIE IN AMERICA’s FREEDOM WAR & HE WAS BLACK! GOD BLESS EVERY OUNCE OF INNOCENT BLOOD SHED FOR THIS NATION & MY FAMILY.
Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, sits down for an interview with the Breakfast Club on New York’s Power 105. Minister Farrakhan discusses numerous topics, from Leadership responsibilities to police violence, poor education to lack of support from the government. He also speaks on the 20th anniversary of million man march, racism in america & his love for music.
Great interview, Farrakhan says Rappers have a responsibility to be better role models & Leaders for our troubled generation.
Multihop.tv salutes all the Hip Hop artist making positive music with a message for the youth, Hip Hop has always been the leader of the culture, clever witty mc’s spitting knowledge & wisdom to uplift the youth’s minds so they can be inspired to be leaders & make smarter decisions & also political lyrics about reality & life issues in america. But unfortunately mainstream radio & media doesn’t accurately promote the difference between Hip Hop culture and elements & Rap music lifestyle, they try to gel them together which is why the game is messed up. Then what makes it worse is major award shows like the Grammys or billboard’s don’t have a category for Real Hip Hop, instead they mislead the youth by saying they have a Hip Hop award that really should be called what it is, a Rap award. Its time that award shows respect the culture & add a real category for Hip Hop so kids can learn that industry rap music which glorifies a flamboyant lifestyle & usually spreads a negative message should not be considered a Hip Hop award.
Peace & Respect to all the Hip Hop artist that have been & still are making positive music for the next generation.
