Making Money When There Are No More Jobs

The summer is arriving with teenagers and young adults scrambling to find the little money available in the job market. If you’re like my brother, you’ve probably come to the conclusion that there are no more jobs in the “real” world. This old way of making money, of conforming to what jobs are available simply […]

The Times of Body-Eating Racism: the return of black cannibals

Cannibal-feast-wazaap

All of a sudden cannibals are back and I’m worried what this means for Black people–folks that have historically been associated with ancient African cannibalism. A wave of cannibalism stories have surfaced in the last couple of weeks—two of them feature perpetrators of African descent. Although mainstream coverage has not spoken about these cases with […]

30 Children, 11 Mothers and No One Talks About The Black Man’s Body

Last night Monday I stumbled across an article with the headline, “Man who had 30 kids with 11 women wants child-support break.” Of course the ethnicity of this father turned out to be Black. My first reaction to this story was a shaken head, because Black male bodies seem incapable of accountability. Missing fathers, no […]

The Digital Age and Social Change

Humyns are the type of beings that always must be in the mood. Anything that can manipulate our emotions provides us with resources to do what must be done. Even our leisure time comes from our activities; perhaps smoking outside on a nice afternoon is our picture of a good mood. These days, our lives […]

What Role Models Mean For People-of-Color

America makes it hard for people of color to have role models. Our leaders not only face systematic murder, but surrender their legacy to our various oppressors. Speaking of my experience, I never learned about Fidel Castro or the Black Panthers in school. When they were briefly mentioned it was their particular stance on violence […]

The Hood on Four Wheels

Since when has skateboarding become a standard by which we judge black masculinity? Prior to Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell Williams, you would not see skate culture—promotion of local skate shops, perfection of kick flips and ollies, etc.—in music videos. Back then, the culture had an explicit expression whether it was Mr. “Skateboard P” himself or […]

The Triumph Of Thug Life

Tupac Coachella

Dedicated to Lakeesha Malone and Kim Jackson This past Sunday Dr. Dre and Snoop Doog achieved an impossible: they brought Tupac Shakur back to life! Using hologram technology, the musicians have awakened a level of consciousness that many would argue died with Tupac. However, the performance at Coachella 2012 is not merely an extension of […]

Style Wars: Not Graffiti But Hipster Takeover

Style, or the way we construct our dress, seems capable to achieve political goals—equal to the power of protests. Speaking from experience, I did not know that my clothes upset the authority figures. Since my professor claimed that I was funny-looking last night, I’ve found a complement in my teacher’s words. Where he was speaking […]

Generation Y and a New Birth of Blue

Generation Y, our generation, is consistently being understood by the intellectuals of Hip-Hop; this week our honorary speaker is Nico Segal. With the most recent release of his EP, Illasoul: shades of blue, Nico has gifted us with a project that companions our journey, or should I say trip.

Bull Sh#t Youth

Growing up we always knew that Capitalism, or “the system”, was responsible for the hardships of our parents. These days the youth of the present generation don’t seem to think that Capitalism just in its essence produces struggle. What if we have been surprised by the good experiences the labor force has lent us? Graduate […]
