Watch for FREE ‘The New Americans’ – Epic 7-hours Long Kaleidoscopic Portrait of Contemporary Immigrant Life in the USA



From today until Friday, July 8th, the free KTQ50 (Kartemquin at 50) series is “The New Americans,” a 2003 epic 7-hours long documentary series that honors the immigration experience – just in time for July 4th of course! But it’s also especially timely, given what feels like a surge in anti-immigrant sentiment in the USA, and other parts of the world (think about what motivated today’s #Brexit vote as one key current example).

“The New Americans” follows four years in the lives of a diverse group of contemporary immigrants and refugees as they journey to start new lives in America: Two families of Nigerian refugees (including the sister of slain Ogoni activist, Ken Saro-Wiwa) escape government persecution; Two Los Angeles Dodgers prospects follow their big dreams of escaping the barrios of the Dominican Republic; A Palestinian woman who marries into a new life in Chicago only to discover in the wake of September 11, she cannot leave behind the pain of her homeland’s conflict; an Indian couple living in Silicon Valley through the dot-com boom and bust; and a Mexican meatpacker who struggles to reunite his family in rural Kansas.

Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
