Analyzing Political Undertones in Pop Culture Through Art

There is generally speaking a list of artistic works that, despite their aesthetic greatness, are either historically misrepresentative & inaccurate or merely biased in context and coverage. Some do justice, some don’t. Perception all depends on which angle you look at the subject. I wish for justice for all, but we must recognize, expose & bring to justice those distinct forces which causeContinue reading “Analyzing Political Undertones in Pop Culture Through Art”

The List Goes On

Political and religious labels are misleading. Depending on the context, these labels change in meaning. In one context, such as Maoist China or Spain during the Civil War, republican might be defined as communist, whereas in the United States, the modern Republican is essentially a neo-conservative. In France, Republicans are centrists and the other major alternativeContinue reading “The List Goes On”

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”

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”

A Q&A With Angela Davis on Black Power, Feminism and the Prison-Industrial Complex | The Nation

A Q&A With Angela Davis on Black Power, Feminism and the Prison-Industrial Complex | The Nation. “Moreover, the most profitable sector of the private-prison business is composed of immigrant detention centers. One can therefore understand why the most repressive anti-immigrant legislation in the United States was drafted by private-prison companies…”

Democracy versus Republicanism

I have spent day and night verifying the perfect political system; one that guarantees men their individual freedoms, their collective rights and global stability. The menaces of fanatical ideologies have swept over human civilization since the dawn of mankind. Individuals have been struggling to preserve their individual identity, and countries have struggled to protect theirContinue reading “Democracy versus Republicanism”
