FACT CHECK TIME! Here are some things to consider:


  • Is this book "by far the cheapest option on the market"? Hard to say. Is it a very inexpensive and effective way to filter water? YEP.
  • We give a big THUMBS UP to the claim that the filter will reduce bacteria by 99.9%. It's coated in silver, which is a well-known antimicrobial.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
