VSB Profiled for BET.com’s “Great 28” Black History Month Campaign

BET screenshot

 

Last month, Damon and I had the pleasure of visiting BET to be interviewed for a Black History Month campaign they’re running called, “Great 28.” Our profile dropped yesterday on BET.com. Thanks to BET for bringing us up and giving us an additional platform to share the VSB word. For the culture, for the community. Peep the video and check out the videos of the awesome other folks who were profiled as well!

And as an added bonus, during that same trip to NYC, Damon ventured to The Root offices and did a video with them, as well, where he explained “Darth Becky.”

Panama Jackson

Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. He refuses to eat cocaine chicken. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. You can hit him on his hitter at panamadjackson@gmail.com.

    Congrats!!! I love stumbling in on some good news.

  • Valerie

    I love this. You guys motivate me to follow my dreams, for the longest I was scared to do just that.
    One of my dreams is I want to eventually create/or work with a coding camp in Houston so I can teach our youth how to code/create apps. I know they have some already but I want to cater to the black youth.

    • Val

      Nice avi. :-)

      • Valerie

        Thank you. I just had to take a pic in my new gaming headset :-)

        • Are you enjoying Final Fantasy XIV

          • Valerie

            No. My laptop crashed before I could download it BUT I recently got a new one :-)

      • *agreed*

      • she always looks nice

        • Valerie

          :-)

        • Val

          Careful, Man. AP is always lurking. :-)

          • LOL!

            • Val

              Hiya, Dara. :-)

              • Hey Val! how you been?

                • Val

                  Everything is everything. I hope you and your family are having a good 2017. :-) Nice to see you.

            • Tam

              Hey Dara. Why are you mia?

              • I had a job that started tracking me by mouse and keyboard stroke lol. That kind of killed my daily habit. And now I have two bosses under the age of 5, and they’re brutal taskmasters lol

                • Tam

                  I understand. We miss you though

                  • I miss ya’ll, too! VSB is a special bunch.

    • lemme ask around.

    • `Abdu’l-Karim Ewing-Boyd

      An easy way to get started is to use Google’s cs-first.com

      I use it for an afterschool program, though since its not my field, I don’t go very deep with it. Some of the kids with some natural talent or interest, though, take it all the way and have started asking their parents to sign them up for summer / spring camps in the area. You could start with that as a base and then build your own curriculum to implement later.

      • Valerie

        Thank you so very much. I’m looking into it now :-)

        • `Abdu’l-Karim Ewing-Boyd

          Sho nuff.

    • TheUnsungStoryteller

      You should connect with the Houston Urban League for Young Professionals. They just had an Urban Code event with the youth.

    I’m proud of you guys.

  • I wanna say, “YES for the black boy joy” but I’m having a hard time saying it with a straight face. So I’ll just go ahead and fist bump you guys virtually

        • Val

    • Tam

      So you all back on? Good thing I told Rewind not to get his hopes up.

      • :-/

      • miss t-lee

        Everyone knows the first break up never sticks.

        • Tam

          I mean if she wants to step out, step out. That’s between her and Ricky but do not try to entice the poor men here by saying it is over, when she knows it is just a fling.

          • miss t-lee

            LMFAO

        • They just in their feels.

          • HouseOfBonnets

            It never fails

      • NonyaB?

        *Cackle* It seems “breaking up” is a form of entertainment for Ricky and Ruby. Kids these days.

      • What is that from?

        • google says.. The Force Unleashed…i never played the game.

          • Valerie

      • Panama “Gorgeous Champ” Young

        • “Shh… Just take it.”

          Is posted on the exit of Baylor’s football locker room. It’s their “Play like a champion today.”

          • miss t-lee

            Guaranteed.

          • Panama “Gorgeous Champ” Young

            Baylor wishes they could script words (and plays) as well as I .

        • panamajackson

          Awkward and rapey.

          • Panama “Gorgeous Champ” Young

        Dontavious with the clear skin. I see you Peej.

      • NonyaB?

        Slightly adjacent: Can y’all do a troll sweep soon? That orange dildo face supporter troll is still running through your posts and causing irritation because people can’t block it (probably because it’s not fully registered).

      • NonyaB?

        @panamajackson:disqus Some commenters can’t be blocked because they’re commenting as a guest, hence no Disqus account to block. They can choose a display name even without an account (based on your settings allowing it). As admin, you can change it so that users have to create an account before they can comment.

        • Reminds me of the standup when Cedrick said, ” I ain’t callin’ no grown man Delicious.”

          • Panama “Gorgeous Champ” Young

            No. you say the whole name. Its like: “A tribe Called Quest.”
