In an effort to give more control and value to content creators of color, women, LGBT, poor, disabled and immigrants I decided to launch a streaming service HUeMAN.TV The aim is to offer a support system within media and television for underrepresented communities…
The idea is to offer content that is free to view and free of advertising so that the stories represented can be authentic to the audience and not guided by ad buys that target straight white men exclusively.
In order to do this, shows of the network like mine will need support.
Though anyone can watch online for FREE at anytime… our site will rely on voluntary monthly donor subscribers (similar to Netflix, Hulu, Spotify) to cover production & costs rather than paid ads. Your monthly recurring gift of any amount as little as $1 can make an big impact…
And it’s tax deductible. This gives you the ability to fund content you enjoy directly. A monthly gift of just $1 can cover the cost of a domain or email address to makes our communication efforts more efficient, a recurring gift of $20 can fund web hosting expenses for a year…
A little truly goes a long way, but we need viewers and we want to build of a network of free and voluntary donor subscribers. I’m tired of being rated by the # of subs I have on YouTube only to have them direct my audiance to other creatives because I dont allow them to run ads.
I dont allow them to run political ads on my podcast “Not on My Watch” or Fast Food/Delivery ads on my cooking series “The Counter”. This is my solution to the problems we encounter from nearly all Mainstream Media outlets. We have to embrace an alternative to Corporate media…
As each day passes and the latest most powerful executive, host or producer of your favorite network or trusted series is outed as an abuser of women and children, a racist or rapist... is it any wonder that the basis of their content was dismissive and unfair to women and POC?
I’m counting on you to join me in an alternative. Please subscribe today (either for free or as a monthly donor). This is my response to the impact that the dreadful SCOTUS ruling of Citizens United has on US. Political Ads & Propaganda can’t influence you where they arent aired.
Please consider supporting by subscribing today. Visit to sign up for FREE, or for $1/month (or any amount of your choice) by clicking the “donate” option or by subscribing to one of 3 suggested sponsorship levels ($10, $50 or $250/month).

Matt Yglacias has nearly half a million followers... Chris Hayes is approaching 2 Million...

Why they chose to target and gang up on Mr. Dane for pointing out again that Sanders is asleep at the wheel when Dems are fighting is beyond me.

Both are disgraceful little turds.
If you haven’t witnessed the exchange, please go to @MrDane1982’s page and follow and read along.

It’s truly heartbreaking the level of trauma recounted in the last 12-18 hours of posts. Things that Matt and Chris don’t consider when using their platforms to harass POC...
I am glad to see the overwhelming amount of support that came to back Mr. Dane but the fact is these big white talking heads do this all the time. They call out people they disagree with, people who never mentioned them and exploit their rabid Bernie-Cult base to fight detractors

Trump, Bernie & The Russians spent years sowing profound distrust into the Democratic Base, tanking trust in the DNC specifically. This hasn’t crushed Dems in local races but if we don’t do something major to fix this, we will still be suffering the after effects in 2020.
Bernie was able to build a cult following… human voters, but also many online automated bot forces that systemically harass obvious democratic voters & supporters online. These people and bots target black women and queer men with precision. Often getting our accounts shut down.
He has still convinced millions of voters who one aligned well with the party that the party is their enemy and can only win elections if he is in charge. It’s precisely Trump’s messaging except Trump “actually won” his primary… which I still dont fully believe. We are in a mess

As a life long GA native and recipient of The Hope Scholarship, I cant tell you how low that issue ranks on my list of concerns in 2018 America

Not to be dismissive of education, but HOPE alone didnt afford me a great education being that I had to fight so hard to get accepted…
White people attend better schools than us. They have more opportunities. They don’t face the same k-12 challenges as us.

When white candidate discuss free college as a means of attacking black candidates, it’s a complete erasure of what we have to surmount just to get accepted.
The school zone I lived in wouldn’t have prepared me to attend th only public school in GA that offered my major… GA Tech (Architecture). I had to apply to a magnet program, get accepted and my mom had to get up every morning at 6 to get me on a bus to get to class, for years!
