“You Asked To See The Monster…so here is the monster you made me” Gary Green wrote, a year after his wife filed for divorce. “There will be five lives taken today – me being the 5th”. Green intended to kill his wife and her three children, shortly after she had requested a divorce.
Green’s haunting letter stated “I pray the lord allows my soul to enter Heaven. If not I will burn in Hell forever.” He currently resides on death row, after stabbing her more than 20 times and drowning her 6 year old daughter.
However after pleading for their lives, the two sons managed to escape from their stepfather. Now aged 18 and 21, this is their traumatic and emotional story, told for the first time.
In the heyday of America’s Old West, roughly a fourth of the cowboys were black. But today, the world of professional bull riding, a sport rooted in ranching culture, is predominantly white.
On this episode of ‘MINORITY REPORTS,’ VICE sent Lee Adams to Texas to meet Neil Holmes and Ezekiel Mitchell—two black bull riders at different points in their careers—to find out what it’s like as a person of color trying to make it in the predominantly white world of professional bull riding. Holmes—an accomplished pro on the eve of his retirement—explains how he got into bull riding, and talks about leaving the sport as the only black pro ranked in the top 100 bull riders. Desperately trying to fill Holmes’s shoes is Mitchell, who’s struggled with the funds to travel, and has experienced racism in the sport first-hand.
We look into why one of the most popular sports in America has so few professional black athletes at its highest levels, and explore some of the barriers to entry that have made black representation difficult in the sport.

Young Boys Incorporated existed in Detroit between 1978 and the late 1980’s. It’s first major indictment was in 1982. It was the first organized crime group to use juveniles as strategy to evade law enforcement. It’s primary drug was heroin and it is one of the most important and influential black criminal groups in American history… turning teenaers into millionaires and in the words of the noted African-American Sociologist Dr. Carl Taylor “YBI was the group that made selling drugs hip and made killing people Okay.” Motown Records fled Detroit for Los Angeles in 1972 and in the vaccum left in Detroit’s economy and society becoming the “Dopeman” replaced singing for Barry Gordy as the ultimate dream. This segment is from “Rollin: the Fall of the Auto Industry and the Rise of the Drug Economy in Detroit” — “B” was recruited to sell drugs as a teenager and is an original YBI member. During the early 1980’s my mother was a heroin user and we lived on Monterey Street aka “Murder-Ray”… also one of the original stronghold streets of YBI. I know that she bought her heroin from them, perhaps from “B”…. who knows… if you’re interested in knowing more watch “Rollin” on Amazon Prime for free with no commercials or here on

The Queensbridge Estate in New York lies within sight of the Manhattan skyscrapers, but is seemingly a world away. The largest housing complex in Queens, it is regularly raided by police to break up massive drug operations. Here, award-winning filmmaker Angus Macqueen looks at the social cost of America’s war on drugs through the life of 28-year-old Thomas Winston: a small-time drug dealer struggling to stay out of prison and away from the lure of easy money that illegal drugs offer. As his probation officer says, here is a man who can earn $15,000 a week in the drugs world or $200 before taxes working in McDonald’s. Thomas is first seen campaigning against the ‘Rockefeller’ drugs laws in New York State, where sale or possession of small amounts of drugs are given a mandatory sentence equivalent to second degree murder, and have long been seen to be both discriminatory and draconian. Human Rights Watch have published a series of reports making clear that Whites, Black and Hispanics sell and consume narcotics in equal numbers, yet over 80% of the prisoners in New York State are Black or Latino. Inside a prison, barely a white face can be seen. The film tracks Thomas’s moving story over a number of months, as he interacts with the legal system and as his probation officer and lawyer attempt to help him; but gradually he is drawn back to his old life. By the end of the film, Thomas has been stabbed to death. Thomas’s story illustrates the failure of America’s zero tolerance drug laws, which don’t stop supply or address addiction, but rather consign whole groups of society to a tragic cycle, undermining the very fabric of whole communities: be it here in Britain or in the US.
