THE STUDY Episode 006 : “The 2016”
Hosted by BONEZ - Dark Night Records

In this episode we’ll have a conversation outlining the many ways 2016 was an unforgettable year in many ways. From the “Back-II-School” MixTape, to launching “THE STUDY”. 2016 was the year that over 1,000,000 people viewed The Venus Project’s documentary “The Choice Is Ours”, and the year of the circus of a rigged election, even MORE unsane & incompetent candidates, & that Hillary Clinton was exposed more than ever for the racist, phony war criminal she is by independent media like “The Empire Files” with Abby Martin. This year also marked 20 years since “Democracy Now!” went on air as a listener sponsored & supported news outlet that does so much more to inform people than corporate controlled media ever will. 2016 was also the year that Police Brutality took a turn never taken in this country’s dirty, filthy, 200+ years of so-called independence with the availability & accessibility of smart-phones & recording devices capturing more incidents of Police Crime & Brutality than ever before for the world to see for themselves. In “The 2016” we will also discuss how, even now we’re facing inequality & injustice so blatantly in the supposed land of opportunity.

Some recommended YouTube Videos will be posted at the end of this description.
