Jason Raikes

A recent college graduate from Bridge Park, Connecticut, Jason Raikes, has decided to record what he has seen in life so far. The video has been posted online and has received thousands of views so far.

Raikes is not headed to law school and some of what he has seen growing up hits home with millions of people in this country. We recommend that you watch this video, which consists of just Raikes talking while on camera. It is a little over 10 minutes long, but is definitely worth it.

He continues with the following:

It’s not the fact that if it’s true or not, it’s the idea in which they are able to pass on to us because true power is influence.”
