Sandra Bland was not "killed after a police encounter. " She committed suicide in jail.

as much as i enjoy TED and NPR, they are also part of the problem. Black speakers can only discuss racial issues, sports, music, giving back to their community. Very seldom Blacks speak on science, geography, nobel prizes, computers, cyber security, statistics...

Ted talks has become a political propaganda arm... WHY??? everything has become political and corrupt anymore,and most ppl are clueless to it,they just think that's the way it REALLY is..... once you start to see things in a political way,you realize how much in this world has been corrupted... it's sad!!!!

i like 6:28 "notion of a precarious future" but we all feel precarious, and rightly so because we may well be ruined or killed this year or maybe next. Why invest?
