Watch Prophets of Rage Salute Colin Kaepernick in New Video

Monday, October 16th, 2017

The clip confronts racial tension embedded in the NFL national anthem debate, pairing shots of protesting players with vintage footage of actors in black face and Mickey Mouse working on a chain gang.

On the opposition of Colin Kaepernick in today's sports world, we ask 'is it the KNEE or is it The NEGRO'"?

Huge Demand for ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Pre-Sale Tickets Caused Delays on Fandango

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Star Wars fans flocked online last night to be among the first people in the galaxy to land pre-sale tickets for The Last Jedi’s Dec. 15 premiere in theaters. The advance sales kicked off soon after Walt Disney-owned Lucasfilm debuted the latest trailer for the space opera’s next installment during halftime of Monday night’s football game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears on ESPN (another Disney property). Tickets were clearly in high demand, as evidenced by the large number of complaints on social media by fans experiencing delays while trying to make a purchase through online movie ticket seller Fandango.

New ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ trailer debuts during halftime of Vikings vs. Bears

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Disney owns both ESPN and Lucasfilm, so with the new Star Wars movie coming up, it only made sense to do a little corporate synergy. Sure enough, during halftime of the Minnesota Vikings-Chicago Bears game on Monday night, Disney will drop the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Of course, Disney did this two years ago with The Force Awakens, so cross-branding is kind of their thing. For those who don’t care much about football or the debut of Chicago Bears rookie Mitchell Trubisky against the Minnesota Vikings, halftime of the game will likely be around 10 p.m. ET. Tuning in five or 10 minutes early just to be safe couldn’t hurt. Directed by Rian Johnson, The Last Jedi hits theaters on
