Is Jesse Williams The New Face of Black America

The Bet Awards was thrilling an exciting because Jesse Williams was the topic. I was receiving texts and phone calls last night Jesse Williamsabout the Bet Awards. The main table talk discussion was about Jesse Williams, ” The Greys Anatomy star ,” gave black folks the what for when it came to how we as a people act in black society.

Many may not know Jessie Williams is a Biracial African American male whose mother is white and father is black. Jesse seems to be the only cat who is not afraid to use his celebrity status to speak to the issues that effect Black America. At a time when most folks are crying for civil rights and gay rights.   Jesse has hit a nerve that many have been crying for someone to hear for sometime. Is Jesse Williams the new face of Black Americas four hundred year old problem called racism ? Now many will insult and dispute Jesse’s stance, because he is a mixed raced black man with blue eyes, light skinned skin tone, and white privileged. But, the question is is Jesse less black, because he comes from a mixed family back ground, or is he the perfect face to tell black folks and white folks when to go to hell and come back ?

The speech has been broadcast all over the world. Black folks are feeling some level of excitement, because one of our own has spoken out about why Black lives do matter. Jesse was at the Bet Awards to receive the Humanitarian Award for his efforts outside the Hollywood community.

The African American community has been longing for a real leader that young people can take hold to that understands their plight. Is Jesse the new face of Black America who is not afraid to stand up for equal rights and the American civil liberties ?

Together, but couldn’t be released due to the label going bankrupt. Victoria Beckham at the time was working with Jay Zs manager Damon Dash. The two worked on a fashion line together and did some music back in the early 90’s. The wife of then soccer star David Beckham gave up her music career as a result of the label going bust. Damon was quoted as saying, ” What she lacked in talent she made up in effort.”

Victoria Beckham has seemed to fair out with fashion better than having a music career anyway. Her semi music career  will always be a mystery to her fans.

SoundScan is Still King of the Hill

What is a sound scan ? Google gives a clear definition of SoundScan as a tracking system operated by the ACNielsen, that tracks sales of music and music video products throughout Digging inthe crates the United States and Canada. Any music product that carries a UPC or EAN barcode and ISRC code is eligible to be tracked by SoundScan.

Soundscan is still the king of the hill as it relates to reporting on music in retail,video, and the digital space. Many people are very familiar with the music industry corrupt pays for plays, or payola as it is called or has been called over the years. Also, you may remember when Red Man spit a verse that said “Are you dope when you pay for your BillBoard Spot.” Well thanks to Soundscan they brought back the honesty in the Billboard reporting system.

In an article by Ultimate Classic Rock they go into great detail about Soundscan and the Billboard reporting system. A statement taken from the article reads as follows “On May 25, 1991, Billboard made a change to the Billboard 200 Top Albums, when the magazine began using SoundScan data to tabulate the positions on the top albums chart. After decades of gathering numbers via a flawed honor system, the industry leader in deciding what was “popular” in popular music started employing accurate sales reports.  SoundScan’s data collection returned the power to the people, the genuine fans who buy and listen to music.”

The Music Industry, and Billboard may have had a long history of unfair reporting practices when it comes to what people are listening to on the Billboard charts, and who is actually buying the music, but Soundscan has help to clear a lot of that up over the years.
