Once upon a time Paladin Jordan Jr was seeking to build a library of successful stories and journeys of Black Men
Im going through the Labyrinth of Death and Deceit right now… But, I’ve been looking back at some of my older products – this is a video of me 8 years ago I believe when I was still a youngling teacher in Brooklyn. That voice and that cadence hitting strong bootz here!!! I sound more professional and put together here then I am now, shoot.
I was 28 years old here. I think I consider 28 the best year of my life. I was absolutely my strongest and most focused here for sure! The difference between me now and ten is, I’m much more battle tested now. I was an amazing servant for the world here. But, as someone once said, I hadn’t LIVED! Nor had life’s challenges and ills really broken into my life at this point.
I am going through… The metamorphosis of champions right now. Still deep in the burrows – BUT when I get to my next destination I definitely want to pick this project and purpose back up. Through all my battles and burdens in my current 36-year old heathen life, I still seek to elevate and appreciate the beautifully unique black men that I walk this earth with.
I promise you won’t regret it. If you know anything about me you know I have overcome quite a lot using the sheer force of my brain alone. This is me trying to pay it forward and share the secrets of unlocking the brain with you!
The academic year just started, with all we’re all going through, with all that we here at EDGE-ucational (Educational )Media Company, LLC have been going through… Educators and community nurturers around the globe are getting bullied by media & capital conglomerates. You guessed it! I’m trying to not get sued right now!
I’m on the verge of being sued for copyright infringement. Using the intellectual property of a photojournalism company. a large one, that has pictures online for the general public to use.
Today is the last day I can edit skoolhaze and myedgemedia’s archives to erase two images of Maya Angelou and Barack Obama… oddly enough. They’re being asked to be removed from my masters portfolio narratives. For those that don’t know I earned a Masters of Science in Education back in 2016. As an ultimate show of my digestion, internalization, and creation of American/Western/Urban teaching practice, I had to create a 70-ish page portfolio of my learnings.
To tie my practice together I used Black imagery. Strong black imagery, everywhere I could.
Now, 5 years later I’m being literally disciplined by Reuters…. I could end up paying a couple thousand dollars if I don’t remove images like this from the site.
Maya’s picture had the quote “History despite its wrenching pain cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.” superimposed on top of it.
Obama’s pictures was him giving the thinking man pose.
I’ve altered the past in both instances. Here are the site links:
Can you imagine creating a rinky-dinky business that get’s threatened by a media conglomerate (compared to us, here.) for using pictures of black icons… in an academic piece almost 10 years ago, and educational website?
That’s not goals. That’s insanity.
The fact that I have to actually be able to maintain a school log in from over 5 years ago… TO NOT GET SUED. Is… not how lawyers are supposed to spend their time. I’m literally typing this while removing… just to complain a bit to readers. I really do hope this helps someone. Your words and knowledge has power. I’m being threatened because the pictures and the words had too much power together.

Productivity: While we feel barely productive now after Covid restructuring MyEdgeMedia responded to the legal teams requesting payment for using public domain for educational purposes images of black public figures. The email and removal of images was complete moments (20mins) before this post went live. Both operations took about 35 minutes each. Separately.
