These are the stories of young people we love to hear – positive and inspirational.
An understanding of media representation of corporate governmental agendas and the lies taught in our history classes are a way to keep a society of dumbed-down people who don’t ask questions.
The leaders, the elite, the rich of this country have made sure to keep the wealth contained and not to be distributed to society as a so-called democracy is to do. While trillions spent on war with the tax dollars from the middle and poor class, breaks given to corporations while our wages show no increase in accordance with the rise in costs of living.
This docu-series sheds light on all things wrong and immoral with our country’s government with it’s justifications of atrocities against people across the world.
THE TRUTH OF THIS COUNTRY NEEDS TO BE TOLD ON A MASS SCALE. SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CO-WORKERS AND WHOMEVER IS WILLING TO OPEN THEIR MINDS.

The Untold Story of Latinos in America
“We are all Americans of the New World, and our most dangerous enemies
are not each other, but the great wall of ignorance between us.”
Juan González, Harvest of Empire
At a time of heated and divisive debate over immigration, Onyx Films is proud to present Harvest of Empire, a feature-length documentary that reveals the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today.
Based on the groundbreaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now! Co-host Juan González, Harvest of Empire takes an unflinching look at the role that U.S. economic and military interests played in triggering an unprecedented wave of migration that is transforming our nation’s cultural and economic landscape.
From the wars for territorial expansion that gave the U.S. control of Puerto Rico, Cuba and more than half of Mexico, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire unveils a moving human story that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S.
As Juan González says at the beginning of the film “They never teach us in school that the huge Latino presence here is a direct result of our own government’s actions in Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America over many decades — actions that forced millions from that region to leave their homeland and journey north.”
Harvest of Empire provides a rare and powerful glimpse into the enormous sacrifices and rarely-noted triumphs of our nation’s growing Latino community. The film features present day immigrant stories, rarely seen archival material, as well as interviews with such respected figures as Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Rigoberta Menchú, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Junot Díaz, Mexican historian Dr. Lorenzo Meyer, journalists María Hinojosa and Geraldo Rivera, Grammy award-winning singer Luis Enrique, and poet Martín Espada.
The white man | US government has always considered the black people as a threat to society.
The history has shown labeling as “terrorists” black conscious, being militant or not, as terrorist groups.
