Jasiri X has released a video called “What if the Tea Party was Black?” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtH7vH4yRcY
The Hip Hop artist says that he got the idea when Paradise Gray, a member of the pro-black rap group X-Clan, forwarded him a copy of Tim Wise’s article. “I saw the article and I liked the concept,” says the rapper. So Jasiri hit the studio with producer Cynik Lethal while Paradise grabbed his video camera and they went on their mission to defeat the Right Wing propaganda machine.
Where the hell is PETA? Yeah i said it? Lemme repeat that incase I was misunderstood.. Where is PETA? You know them, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals... Where are those guys around this Gulf Oil Spill Issue?
For many of us this disaster didn't hit home until we started seeing dead turtles and pelicans immersed in oil come washing up on our shores. I mean we lost 11 people and for the majority of us, it was in one ear and out the other..
This interview with Rand Paul is interesting on a number of levels. The way it's being spun is that he handed ABC host George Stephanopoulos his ass. I can see that being the case only in the sense that Paul was prepared for the inevitable questions on his controversial stances around Civil Rights. Up to now a lot has been made about his take on things in this arena and to be honest it’s more than obvious what conclusions you can draw from them - dude is smooth, but anyway you slice it he simply wasn’t down for the advancements of the Civil Rights Movement.
One of the most important unasked questions this midterm election year is this: “Will the youth vote be a factor in 2010?” Given the actual impact of the youth vote in 2008, it’s a far more important question than the ones daily raised by the media manufactured so-called Tea Party Movement–despite the latter’s success at striking fear in the hearts of incumbents.
The Tea Party murmuring is hardly a movement. It has not a single political victory to speak of. Not so easy to dismiss are young voters who two years ago turned out in record numbers to vote in the presidential election. Two-thirds of the 23 million voters 18-29 who voted for president in 2008, voted for Barack Obama.
In breaking news, two of Hip Hop’s most popular artists died today. In what was the culmination of a year long beef, an altercation in the middle of 52nd street has left both men dead. No, they didn’t shoot each other. As they stood arguing in the middle of the street, they were run over by a Tea Party Express bus that was running late for a rally…
When we got wind that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' wife Virginia was launching a Tea Party organization called Liberty Central Inc, all we could do is throw our hands up in exasperation. This newest affiliation with the Tea Party is dedicated to uplifting conservative principles... So much for impartiality on the nation's highest court. So much for 'justice being blind' and holding no allegience to political idealogy...
Last week we reported how the Tea Party folks were gonna be organizing Anti-Immigrant rallies in 50 cities around the country. The rhetoric being used was pretty inflammatory and it was noted that people should be aware of attacks…
