When They See us

A True Series based on an incident in 1989 known as the Central Park Five case. A Series split into four-episode each an

hour an half long. Five Black teenagers Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise are wrongly accused of rape and end up in prison for a long time until the main accuses confesses of his crime and then years later they are free.

This series highlights the facts on the racism against black during the eighties and nineties. The struggle of life in prison and the reactions of the family on their kids even though they admit they were innocent, Yet they find it hard to believe. The series highlights the dirty politics in order to win cases and falsely tricking the accused into admitting their guilt.

There is also an hour-long special with Oprah Winfrey with the “Real” five accused. Oprah Winfrey is the producer along with Robert Di Nero.

But, The Big Question is how much has changed in the USA? Even though this was 89. There was an event recently about a week in the USA Where cops were harassing and assaulted a Black.

The series is Written & Directed by Ava DuVernay who has directed the critically acclaimed film “Selma” which was also produced by Oprah Winfrey.

The five teenagers years later after proven not guilty were Vacated from court means that those who were originally convicted are treated as though no trial ever took place in the first place.

Their settlement for wrongly been accused was $41Million amongst the five of them. Largest in history.

NBA In India !

 

NBA in India was like IPL in the USA.
some of the iconic basketball players like Lebron James, kobe Bryant, Magic Jhonson and Jordon  are of the players and the only team you know is Lakers from Los Angels and nothing much. just like in our Cricket you know and must have heard about Sachin, Virat and Dhoni  who are  some of the legends  from the games. but it’s more about the experience, the carnival( Music, cheers, Madness, the energy the moments, And Deepening your knowledge about the game.)
The NBA  game has 30 Teams divided into Eastern into (Atlantic,Central and southeast and Western teams are divided into (Northwest,Pacific and southwest )  about 80 odd games are played  over a period of six months from November until April. Each game has  
4 quarters of 12 minutes, With time out breaks of 5 minutes and a fifteen minutes break at half time. Well in all it goes on for about 120 minutes to 180 minutes.
Each player was a  minimum 6”2 and  posses the ball for twenty four seconds, Before he could  pass the ball to another player or take a shot at the basket.  There were moments where a lot of the fans felt like minions and dwarfs if they would have stood against the players. The sprints, the dogging of the ball, the accuracy and sometimes the miscalculation of the shots made  the crowd roar and brings them on the edge of their seats and Scream and Cheers. The game  was all about what you actually experience with hundreds of people all there to witness the sport and sinking the feeling of having brought a sport other than cricket brought to our nation, At   the prefect time to introduce a sport that has a potential market.
The Match between Indiana Pacers vs sacramento kings was the first ever official game of NBA in India,Mumbai held on the 4 and 5th of Oct.  It was a great experience, Playing the virtual basket ball game during the breaks and winning Book my show vouchers  worth 500.   Jerseys and merchandises Were  disturbed randomly in the stadium,  And lucky contestant were  part  of  the  the real basket ball moment, with  jersey and Attire making them feel like the players out there. As part of entertainment act Kings united, the Winner of  an American Dance show from India  performed  during the break, To grabbing nachos and cola for the “Real American NBA experience in India.”
To be honest, those one twenty minutes of action, had many moments where we were lost with what’s was happening on the court, As when you are experiencing a live match there are so many distractions out there, you just want to enjoy the Experience, where as the telecasted matches focus on the game rather than the experience. This was my NBA experience in India, now I am pretty sure what a “Foreigner”  goes through while watching an IPL or a cricket match without having much idea about the sport or want to experience and know what the game is all about.
