Van Jones new book: dedication and a chapter

Van is working to bring red and blue together.

You know what he calls that.

PURPLE.

It's obvious he cried when he wrote the chapter.

It's well worth the read

BEYOND THE MESSY TRUTH

cant put my finger on why, but this Van Jones cat, and his outwardly emotional fanboy love for Prince seems kinda creepy...i never saw or heard of this man in my life before Prince died...

Sounds like it would be an interesting read. I've been listening a lot to him, he seems like a very sincere person.

He was in President Obama's Administration and at one point, talked about quite a bit in the MSM.

Seriously?
How could you not have heard of Van Jones IF you were at any time into serious US political discussions?
The only news network he didn't regularly appear on was Fox News, and they constantly demonized him. He had a contract with MSNBC (a daily show!) and now CNN.
Don't forget that
P reached out to him, not the opposite.
Before any of that, he was White House green energy advisoradvisor to president Obama.

Good God, people. Afraid to use Google if you don't recognize something?

i never said i was looking for information about him... so i dont need to google anything ... i said i had never heard of him before Prince died... the fact that he spends Sunday Mornings shooting the shit on TV with a bunch of other creepy lying ass politicians and so-called political pundits, doesnt impress me at all... it doesnt change my impression or opinion of him...he has a nice little resume and background, ill concede that...but in regards to Prince, he seems oddly lovestruck...my opinion...
