CHICAGO- Adam Hollingsworth, 33, rode the Dan Ryan Expressway to bring awareness to the slaying of our children, heading southbound from about 35th Street, where he slowed down traffic with the Illinois State Police and Chicago Police close behind asking him and the gang to exit but they refused, eventually exiting at 95th where he was taken into custody around 4:30 PM by police, as reported by WGN News.
They’re calling for the mayor and governor to fund mental health, education, social programs and new development in neighborhoods that have been neglected, and are being gentrified.
“The thing is to send a message that our children are dying, That there are no resources coming to our communities.”

According to journalist Vashon, Dreadhead Cowboy lead his horse Nunu 7.5 miles down the expressway before being arrested. Ironically his horse is named after one of the children shot and killed this summer, Vernado “NuNu” Jones Jr., whom we are still seeking justice for. He’s facing three (3) charges: reckless conduct, disobeying a police officer and criminal trespass.
BREAKING: The Dreadhead Cowboy is riding his horse on the Dan Ryan Expressway in Chicago, Illinois!
NuNu had multiple injuries from the trip. He was allegedly “bleeding from the left hoof, its right hoof was injured and the right side of the horse’s body had sores from the saddle.” Chicago Animal Control was called to the scene and took the animal to their facility for further care.
Adam is no stranger of being an honorable active citizen in the hood or neighborhoods across Chicago. He’s always stood loud ringing the alarm so the deaf can open their mind to the rate of how our children are being taken away from us. ALL CHILDREN life does matter; the killings of children in Chicago, the kidnapping , and human trafficking of our children must be front and center so it can be stopped.
“Earlier this summer, Mayor Lightfoot dubbed Hollingsworth “The Census Cowboy” in an effort to bring awareness around filing out the census (WGN).”
Chicago-New single out now on all platforms and video coming soon. I’m salty I missed this video appearance because the aesthetics is life. Listening to Tarhonda share her vision with me for Melanin Queen then seeing her bringing the vision to reality, so quickly and in quality is inspiring. I can’t wait to see the final product. Visit her page and click the link in her bio to listen to the song.
Allegedly Russell Wilson gifted the mothers of Future’s children each 10K College Funds for the shorties. The Wilson’s are always giving. This will help the children bond as a blended family providing them all with the same opportunity in life. This is a great form of charity to humanity because it’s a investment in making them good citizens of life. Scholarships are grants to learn for free purposes of course to create a union to produce great fruit(s).
The joining of marriage partners no matter if they’re independently wealthy, such as Ciara and Russell, establishes a estate and trust that provides a wealth of information and resources to learn how to help make humanity better; while having a rich life.
Some people are purely understanding of how truly great this is, and some feel like Future should snub him when in reality they should all just be grateful as a unit they are able to provide that level of lifestyle choices to their children as a collective. This should breed out jealousy between siblings with different fathers and status. This can help blend the multiple relationships and personalities of the situation.
Scholarship is a revenue donation to access other social commerce services, hence why tuition is a revenue and you can receive a credit for continuing education. Human Resources are very important for us to live life , as living beings we help bridge the gap with all life forms.
Even though all humans don’t go the virtuous cycle of life, it’s good to have the children introduced to a good life so that they can make choices. How they make their choices and what they do with the resources is not on you, because they will receive their fruits, good and bad.
Social commerce is Urban Culture’s leading stock. I support this message, not just the artist he’s supporting but the entire message to help increase the equity in Chicago’s market. We’re the 3rd largest market competing with Houston for a slot we’ve had undeniably long.
Chicago creatives and entrepreneurs should stick together more to help our market become not only navigated by us but owned by us based on our buys and/or interest.
Many enthusiasts have come from near and far places to be influenced by our culture. There are many businesses, opportunities, talent, and resources in the city of Chicago. We just have to put in our bid and own our social commerce.

This lecture has been saved on my watch later list for years, maybe over 4. I’ve watched it multiple times and I’ve decided to start sharing some of my independent scholarly works including my scholarly work as a member of the City Colleges of Chicago and Governors State University. My independent works satisfy me more because it’s aligned with my passion.
We need to know (blacks, poor, indigenous peoples, etc.) that no one is coming to save us and we need to prepare those coming behind us for the real true world, and not the ideal world they teach us we will graduate into as we fake climb the ladder of success in capitalism and public systems.
Feel free to comment and share your thoughts. Please share this lecture with your people, they need to hear this.
What is the global media landscape? How has it evolved over the past decades? What role has UNESCO played in the shaping of the global media landscape?
The global media landscape is the digital technology and aesthetics of the flow of media. It has evolved over the last decade by allowing the global and contra-flow of media to flow in different directions (export and import). This allows those who didn’t have access to other nations or target audience to expand their base or reach a larger audience. The UNESCO role, which is the mediator, has shaped the global media landscape. It helps to report information to the key players involved providing them with education for a better understanding of culture scientifically. I think that this allows all parties involved to make better decisions when it comes to the trading of communication and media commodities.
Who are the major media players (companies and countries)? What is meant by ‘subaltern’ contra-flows? Are these anti-hegemonic or pro-American? Why?
The major media players in terms of countries is United States, Europe, and Asia. The major media company players are CNN (US), ESPN (US), Disney (US), Discovery (US), Hollywood (US), Google (US), BBC (Europe), CNBC (US), Wall Street Journal (US), Japanese Animation (Japan), etc.( Thussu, 12).
What is meant by “subaltern Contra-flows”, is an sub-alternate flow that flows culture from one place to another by a constituent from another region (Thussu,11-13) . For example, there are two types of Contra-Flows: Transnational and Geo Cultural (Thussu,12) . Transnational is a subaltern flow that consist of multi-vocal, multimedia, and multi-directional flows (Thussu,11-13).
According to the text, Thussu states that global media traffic isn’t just one way, even with the US at core. I think that this shows that the subaltern flows is anti-hegemonic even though they may be hybridized (Thussu,18-21). The goals of these subaltern flows is to create a flow that counters the dominant flows, giving the world audience a different perspective of culture and creativity (Thussu, 10-13).

People were definitely hungry because soon as the smell of food hit the room people began going to get a plate while the Queens were walking. They had to be told to have some respect and give them their undivided attention. But that’s when you know for sure that the event is popping! After being entertained in a grand way, you need a snack in between.
There were singers but I wasn’t too much into the singing segment as I was the dance segment of the show. I loved the dancers ! They moved so effortlessly. The salsa dancers were my favorite, and GSU Dance Company was present in taken us to Hawaii through their voiceless wavy moves and subtle music of nature.
