The school year just started… and educators are getting bullied by media & capital conglomerates. Yes, I’m trying to not get sued right now!


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.

Barely holding it together here as it is. ^_^

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.

Check these readings out. I ordered these books back in 2015. December 31, to be exact. They are giving me ‘color’ on how to understand my dilemma with being treated as a decent citizen, worth acknowledging and treating with kindness and humanity.

Treatment we all deserve.

These are controversial and will JAR you. That is ok. Just read the ideas, and perhaps order the books for your personal library.

I’ve been gone for a minute but I’m back w the Jump off.

I was gonna type this. But pictures speak louder than words.

These are my workouts during my most recent hospital and behavioral health system stay. (Mental hospital)

You’ll notice I worked out 14 times during my 30+ day stay.

Pushups was heavy!

Followed by high knees, and athletic stationery runs/jump ropes, and suicides.

Core was a distant third focal point.

I’m currently home from an attempt to justifiably remove my own life. It’s a long story. Its meant for MyEdgeMedia!

I’ll keep trying to share more as I process and catalogue my experiences over these past 36 years.
