The Strivers Row

Anonymous said: Why do you only release one video a week ?

During the summer/winter shows we film, but we also edit the footage. Before the footage is posted for you, we send it to each artist to approve. It usually takes time for the artist to approve the footage. Sometimes it takes a week, sometimes they don’t want anything posted at all.

Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.
