In Recent news there have been what appears to be various levels of  social contention that has raised some concern throughout the country, as well as, the international community. Incidents involving opposing ideologies and war of ideas appear to be all too familiar reoccurring circumstances that have repeatedly transpired through out American history. Is it just the American way? Or is there something that someone may have to gain from a prejudice experiment disguised as philosophical undertaking?

Some of the events that have managed to create tension include threats of potential combat between the the U.S. military and North Korea over what the United States recognizes as nuclear ambition, as well as, the possibility of missile firing near American territory. In entertainment news, rapper Jay-z recently released a new album that contains a controversial lead single and video entitled “The O.J. story”. Because of song’s outspoken lyrics and video caricature some people took offense to it while others were less taken aback, describing the artist’s content as using common stereotypes to highlight his message.

One of the most fascinating recent stories is the highly anticipated upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. This highly anticipated square-off became even more charged when during a press conference McGregor referred to members of Mayweather’s entourage as monkeys; a term referenced by a lot of people as a degrading epithet. Mayweather voiced his concerns about McGregor comments as not only being a personal attack but offensive to others as well.

Lastly, and the most recent incidents of social conflict happened last weekend as members of a hostile group of separatists took to campus of the University of Virginia in a public exhibition of uniformity. Equipped with burning torches, body armor, and weapons, the group expressed their outrage over their dissatisfaction with the current political climate and the intent removal of Confederate statue. Undoubtedly this latest event only heightened tension in an already acrimonious social climate. The chain reaction of all of these current events fore mentioned could not not have a more profound effect leading into a big fight that features a mix martial arts/boxer, McGregor versus reigning champion and professional boxer, Mayweather.

On the surface, internal national conflicts may appear to be bad for business. To put it poetically; “no one wins when the family fued.”(Jay-z,”Family fued”, 4:44.) However, as far fetched as it may appear to be  what is more American than big business and the machine of social engineering propaganda to achieve an end? This begs the question of who might have cut the check for the separatist group to create more mass confusion preceding what is potentially projected one of the biggest boxing matches ever. Was it Pay-Per View, the Money Team, Trump or Jigga? Is it a conspiracy or not?
