I hopped over to OpenCulture.com when I read a brief description of the video and then watched the youtube video. Fantastic!
So I'm going to shut up now, because "DNA" (Derrick Ashong) can speak so much better than I. What I have done though is gather three of his youtube videos here in this one spot. I recommend that you watch them in order (about 5-7 minutes each). Then Check out the website TakeBackTheMic.com. (I think there is a law against an immigrant becoming a president, but if it were not for that, I'd vote for Derrick.)
Enjoy... oh and one more thing...
Yes We Can...
Sorry - I realized I really should set up this first video... I'm going to copy/paste the words from OpenCulture's site:
Let’s set the scene: A reporter selects a young Barack Obama supporter at a rally and starts peppering him with questions about the candidate. And it all feels like a staged effort to demonstrate that the mobilized youth has no real handle on the issues. He’s just blindly buying the hype. Without wasting time, the reporter leads the young man into a conversation on the complexities of health care. It’s the perfect setup. But then it suddenly becomes clear that the reporter chose the wrong kid (who is a naturalized immigrant, by the way) to play the fool.
