ONN – Taco Bell Fires Denzel Skinner For Black Lives Matter Mask In Dearborn Michigan, Video Goes Viral
This post is based on the #RIPTacoBell Twitter thread, where thousands of comments were offered as Taco Bell Employee Denzel Skinner broadcast that he was fired from a Taco Bell franchise at 3551 Belmont in Dearborn Michigan.
The action happened last week, June 9th, then (as Skinner posted a livestream video of his talk with a Taco Bell supervisor), it slowly gained steam and went viral.
Apparently, the Taco Bell franchise supervisor took issue with what she said was a “political statement”, but Skinner said (and I agree) that Black Lives Matter is not a political statement, nor should it be considered as such. Keeping black lives whole is not a political argument; it’s a recognition of a society that seems bent on having its police kill black men, and its system make sure that black men are kept economically and socially suppressed.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
