Censorship is a form of control often used by the State and hocus pocus types to maintain various forms of control. From censorship in music to videos to literary criticisms, censorship is a form of conditioning. If it goes unchallenged many within a given society become conditioned drones in their relationship with these institutions. This hour 'Slave Revolt! deals with this subject matter in a (Beyond the shadows) segment called 'The cartoon network of religious censorship'.

Then 'SR' deals with those who don't know themselves or their relationship in the real world in a (Shameless file) piece called 'White skin/Patriarchal mask'. A subject matter that seeks to explore how if one wears this white skin covered mask long enough you will be doomed from taking the steps towards ones own salvation.

If one honestly wants a hawks eye view of how race and class preference are played out and are intertwined in America and it's cities this true living tale is for you. It is a classic tale of American inclusion and exclusion. Support and denial. Generosity and genocide.

This hour Slave Revolt! in a (Beyond the shadow) segment titled 'A tale of two cities: 'Vanilla' Malibu, 'Chocolate' New Orleans' we explore how Fema responds to 'Vanilla' Malibu when it's frequent and natural firestorms blaze it's way through the zones that Malibu residents insist on living. This is in comparison to 'Chocolate' New Orleans. How public money is distributed is contrasted in black and white. The response of Mayors, Governors, and the 'Orders' law enforcement agencies in the two cities gives some insight what flavor is prefered in this society.

The privatized racialized order then blends together who profits off of these disasters regardless of what city you reside in. Making it clear that this 'Vanilla' koolade is a human made capitalist drink with the ingredients of a hierarchical elitist, economic, psychological, social political mixture that puts the Jim Jones/Cia koolade to shame.
