Thoughts on Democratic Debates

We need more minority representation. The democrats were looking like the Whigs from the UK. I wonder what percentage of financially struggling Americans are non-white. How would this make democrats look? Where are our multi-ethnic representatives? We need leaders who understand and connect with struggling Americans not privileged white girls in gentrified Williamsburg. I stillContinue reading “Thoughts on Democratic Debates”

Faux-News: Balancing News Coverage in the US Media-Mainstream

The reason why most immigrants to the US are less inclined to believe lies on US media channels is because they have more experience in the outer world. That is why when US media outlets inflame the crimes of violent groups like al Qaeda and ISIS, it almost makes us laugh because in our eyes,Continue reading “Faux-News: Balancing News Coverage in the US Media-Mainstream”

Re-Mixed Economics

To understand America’s race problem, it’s foreign policy problem — TO MAKE SENSE OF ANY of America’s imperfections, one mustn’t overlook perhaps the crux of the entire system’s mishaps altogether: Socio-economics. When Iggy Azalea recently sounded off on twitter fellow Hip-Hoppers Azealia Banks & Lupe Fiasco got involved. But what caught my attention was Q-Tip’s response, riddledContinue reading “Re-Mixed Economics”

On Democratic Socialism & Hip-Hop’s Place in America Today

Recent tension between hip-hop artists Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea inspired me to address the issue, and how the undertones resonate loudly in America, with associations to systems of cultural repression such as racism, jim crow, the prison-industrial complex, corporate hoarding and finally US foreign policy; and ultimately how all of these issues are in actuality theContinue reading “On Democratic Socialism & Hip-Hop’s Place in America Today”

The Trials of Democracy in the 21st Century

Criticism without an alternative is obsolete. Democracy is the only method of government that isn’t absolute. Human nature isn’t absolute. I have no qualms with free speech; I do believe in respect too. I am a moderate and a follower of the Supreme therefore I do not associate with any ideology or religion except forContinue reading “The Trials of Democracy in the 21st Century”

CRITICAL ANALYSIS: One Nation, Divided Under Law (The Palestinian-Israeli Conflict & Ferguson)

First, Israel is already a Jewish state, and second, from the perspective of its Arab citizens, it’s a state that’s already seen as a preferential rather than full democracy. And passage of this gratuitous and provocative new law will only widen the growing and still irreconcilable gap between the two. But now in the highlyContinue reading “CRITICAL ANALYSIS: One Nation, Divided Under Law (The Palestinian-Israeli Conflict & Ferguson)”

Libertarianism

In essence the rise of Libertarianism in America is nothing to be jovial about because it represents only one thing: the decline of an empire. Libertarianism is intended to be the solution to America’s governmental and business intrusions into daily life but in reality, the rise of libertarianism is only the signal of the failureContinue reading “Libertarianism”

The Problem of Collectivism

If there is one thing I have come to learn to really appreciate it is my individual freedom. It is becoming extremely taboo to tout your individualism. It is often viewed as a sense of paranoia. I have learned to face a fact: most people prefer to rely on others – instead of themselves – for financial/political gain.Continue reading “The Problem of Collectivism”

Why America is un-American: Trials of a Middle Eastern Immigrant

They say robust capitalism is the greatest system in our world because it maximizes the benefits of all men in any given society. This perspective is especially true of the American narrative we are ‘indoctrinated’ into through our public and private institutions. As an immigrant to this country, I must say, however I am profoundly disappointed.Continue reading “Why America is un-American: Trials of a Middle Eastern Immigrant”

Liberal Zionism: A Contradiction?

You cannot be a liberal Zionist. Why? 1. Liberalism entails a separation of church and state. 2. In order for Israel’s democracy to be established, it required the theft of land based on religious grounds (that might or might not have historical basis), which is a violation of human rights laws as well as the aforementionedContinue reading “Liberal Zionism: A Contradiction?”
