(Video) A Healthy Dose Of Truth: Chris Hayes Talks About Problems In The “White Community”


This is a must watch! Chris Hayes uses a creative method of showing how unfairly media depicts the “black community” when choosing what to report, and even more so when choosing how to report it. He touches on sensitive topics like why “White On White Crime” (which does exist), is something we barely ever hear about in the news; yet, “Black On Black Crime” is reported daily and the term has become a common and familiar phrase. This coming after the coverage and scrutiny of African Americans displaying justifiably outrage; and lack thereof in regards to White American’s who riot for illegitimate reasons. Watch the full video for yourself!

IFWT_Charles Gladden

Update: So, Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men either heard or read about Charles Gladden’s dilemma which we previously covered here on #IFWT; and helped him out by starting a “Go Fund Me” account to raise $20,000! Morris even put the first $10,000 in with a donation from Boyz II Men House. The 63 year old man was working full time at the U.S. Capitol for 8 years but he was still homeless, and had 3 toes amputated due to his diabetes. The Boyz II Men co-founder said he was touched by the man’s story. The original story can be read below.

Charles Gladden is a 63 year old man who sleeps on a sidewalk next to D.C.’s McPherson Square Metro Station. Unlike most homeless people, he actually has a job; and of all places, it’s at the U.S. Capital building! Ok, he only works in the cafeteria, but you’d still think he’d make enough to have a dwelling of his own! According to Gladden, he makes $11 an hour, which isn’t enough for him to take care of his children, grandchildren and himself. It’s hard out here in these streets!
