Air Shoot : Don’t do anything to be famous, have integrity and used wisdom of self! Be above what ever lets you down. Never compromise your self for another ….

Watch a silly American cartoon from the #raygun81 series following the life of characters “Fray and Tay” and all of their American Poverty friends doing nothing and not serving any purpose due to endless congress unemployment. Watch as nothing happens after years of trying, bad education and poor eating habits.

See the American Poverty stricken guys look for work, believe in nothing and don’t gain any money ever.

thank you

Frustrated: Black American Men in Brazil (POWERFUL DOCUMENTARY)

Al Greeze decided to produce Frustrated after reading a September 2006 Essence Magazine article (Blame it On Rio) written by Professor William Jelani Cobb, which stated that African men were travelling to Brazil for sex vacations with Brazilian prostitutes and the adulation of the Brazilian women Greeze wanted to either confirm or deny and reveal the answers from the men themselves and find out if it is for love and companionship or just sex. The effect may have been suspected but what is the cause?

Through research, personal accounts and testimonies from the men who fall in love or date Brazilian women and the reaction and opinions of the women both in the U.S. and in Brazil, the film touches and unlocks some heartfelt emotions to these complex issues including the economic and educational divide between the sexes and the possibly unachievable roles each places on the other. Although the film exams the controversial topic of relationships outside of the African American race and the country, the film’s goal is to elicit open conversation and communication amongst men and women, strengthen the family dynamic and give both sides a platform to give an honest account.

Frustrated ask such questions as why are African American men finding love outside of their race, what do they feel is missing from African American woman and are African American women now in competition with Brazilian women as they are with other races…is there really a threat, or are the women saying good riddance we don’t need you or are they fighting for their men?
