    Introducing 

    Jerrel L. Farries      Producer/Director/Film

    Jerrel L. Farries, President & CEO of JRELZ Media Group LLC., founded the media production company in August of 2012.  Getting his start as a local music producer at the age of 14, he quickly made an impact on the Indianapolis music scene by producing for local talent, both Rap and RnB.  His moniker, JRELZ resonated as a the name of a rising talent who saw far beyond his age, namely because of his soulful approach to sampling classic and timeless records.  In 2009, JRELZ launched a website, www.jrelzbeats.com, where his talent went beyond his city, and to the corners of the earth.  As if gaining clients in new cities by the day wasn't enough of a highly touted resume, JRELZ decided to try his hand at film in late 2011.  In 2012, he decided to launch his company in rare form by releasing his first short film, "Secrets", which he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in. That was the spark that JRELZ needed to eventually go on to shoot a feature length film entitled, "Secrets 2", that sold out two theaters at the Hamilton 16 IMAX Theater in 2014, win first place in the Indiana Black Expo International Film Festival in 2016 with his short film about mental health in the African American community entitled, "Zion's Berger", to most recently filming a television series set to air in 2017 entitled, "Save My Soul".  JRELZ has utilized the platform that he has been afforded to partner with local ministry efforts such as food and clothing drives, and also supporting other local filmmakers while they too work to achieve their dreams.  JRELZ says that any level of success he ever receives can be attributed to God, his family, and the support of his wonderful JMG Staff.

    WHY DO YOU CALL YOURSELF BLACK OR AFRICAN AMERICAN, AND WHY DO YOU CALL YOURSELF A CHRISTIAN???

    Do you want to spend Eternal Life with Yahshua the Messiah in the kingdom of heaven or do you want to spend Eternal Life with Satan in Hell? Where are you from? If you are an African American, what country in Africa are you from; if you are an American, how did you get this country from the white man who stole it from the Indians? So tell me, where are you from, what is the name of your country? Let me answer this for you. We are Hebrew Israelites; this is who we are according to the Bible. We are the descended of Shem. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are our forefathers. You will find this in Genesis 10:1-32. Read it! Where is our land? You will find this in Genesis 12:1-7. The land of Canaan which is now Israel, this is our home. YAH will gather us to himself and take us back to the promise land. Ezekiel 34:11-16; Ezekiel 36:24-28. Read it! Why do you call yourself a Christian? Why do you want to be a Christian? There are no Scriptures in the Bible concerning Christians. Where did it come from?

    The Protestant Reformation which began in the 1500s created new Christian communities that separated from the Roman Catholic Church and have evolved into many different denominations. Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Christianity spread to all of Europe in the middle Ages. Christianity expanded throughout the world during Europe's Age of Exploration from the Renaissance onwards, becoming the world's largest religion. Today there are more than two billion Christians worldwide. White Christians are our slave masters, they became rich from the slave trade and are still making money off of the slaves living in America today, you so called African American or Black. Christians have the own white god they called Jesus Christ, he is a white man with long blonde hair and blue eyes, his name is Cesare Borgia. Christians do not accept the Messiah of the Bible. Do your own research! But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 10:33. Yahshua said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6. Christians will not be saved, YAH do not talk to Christians. Salvation is of the Jews and Yahshua the Messiah is a Jew. A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. John 4:7-9. Do you still want to be a Christian? The white Christian Pastors say that Jesus Christ Promise to return and Rapture all of his redeemed up to heaven, that is a lie. No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. John 3:13. May the Lord give you increase more and more,You and your children. May you be blessed by Yahweh, Who made heaven and earth. The heaven, even the heavens, are Yahweh’s; But the earth He has given to the children of men. Psalm 115:14-16. Read John 3:1-7 and Roman 10:1-10. The Saints will be in the kingdom of heaven here on earth. Who are the Saints? Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of Yahweh and the faith of Yahshua. Christians don’t keep the commandments. All praises to YAH!

    Politicians, celebrities and athletes prove headliners

    By Everything Underground

     

    A former world class surgeon, longtime entertainer and reigning champion were among those who provided the headlines for other top stories in 2015. Dr. Ben Carson, Bill Cosby and Serena Williams each provided plenty of material for newspapers, magazines and websites.

     

    Carson, a retired surgeon best known in the medical world for a revolutionary procedure that separated Siamese twins, had been a Fox News commentator and severe critic of President Obama's healthcare plan. But after a speech at which the President was a guest where Carson had plenty of negative things to say about both his program and the nation's direction as a whole, things caught fire.

     

    Carson was urged to run for the Republican Presidential nomination by several conservative groups, and he entered the race as a longshot. At one point, he'd vaulted all the way into the number two spot, but then his momentum stalled, in part due to a curious decision to suspend his campaign for a book-signing tour. He also made highly controversial comments throughout the summer about Muslims, abortion, Black Lives Matter and Syrian refugees.

     

    Though no longer in the second spot with winter approaching, Carson is still very much a part of the GOP process. The gap between him and the front-runner Donald Trump is much wider today than at his peak of popularity during the summer, but he remains among the top six candidates vying for the nomination.

     

    Bill Cosby had been widely viewed since the '60s as a beloved celebrity, a father figure to many due to the influence of his '80s sitcom "The Cosby Show." But old charges evolved into a host of new ones in 2015, with more than 50 women emerging at various times to accuse him of everything from improper conduct to borderline rape.

     

    Cosby's reputation plummeted. A planned comeback show on NBC and birthday/anniversary celebration on Netflix were cancelled. Some 30 institutions revoked honorary degrees they had previously given him, though his Emmy awards, Mark Twain prize and Medal of Freedom at this point seem safe.

     

    His defenders insist that he's being railroaded, and claims against at least two of his accusers have been the stuff of online fervor. But in 2016, Cosby faces at least one deposition, and there are also ongoing attempts to force his wife Camille to be deposed as well.

     

    Serena Williams came within two matches of being the first person to win all four world titles within the calendar year, the "Grand Slam." She did achieve her second "Serena Slam," holding at one point the Australian, French, Wimbledon and U.S. Open titles simultaneously until her loss at Forest Hills.

     

    Williams ended the year being named "Sportsperson of the Year" by Sports illustrated. Simone Biles, the most dominant gymnast in history, took a third straight world title and was selected the Olympic Athlete of the Year. Floyd Mayweather concluded (at least for now) an undefeated boxing campaign, retiring without trying to break Rocky Marciano's record. He settled instead for tying it.

     

    Lester Holt became the first Black man since Max Robinson to anchor a weeknight network broadcast as he took over the reins at the NBC Nightly News. South African export Trevor Noah took over the "Daily Show" hosting duties from the beloved Jon Stewart.

     

    Black films had perhaps their greatest year from a commercial standpoint. Whether it was the N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton," the faith-based "War Room" or the coming-of-age youth vehicle "Dope," it was suddenly no surprise to see a Black-themed production atop the box office.

     

    It was also a big year for Blacks on TV, with Fox's "Empire" breaking records in its first season, and "Black-Ish" the pivotal new sit-com. While there's still no exactly a flood of dramas or serious works spotlighting Blacks, there's definitely more Black faces everywhere, and Shonda Rhimes became the first Black woman to ever head an entire night of programming thanks to the Thursday night power lineup of "Grey's Anatomy," "Scandal," and "How To Get Away With Murder." 

     

    Lastly, Black Twitter's strength as the social media site of choice for young Black Americans was evident throughout 2015. While Facebook continues to be the dominant site in terms of dedicated users, Black Twitter was often the agenda setter.  

     

    There are so many hot button items and topics ahead in 2016, so there should be no shortage of things to discuss on Black Twitter.
