The Church of Hip-Hop

The political, religious & socio-economic conditions of the African-American communities birthed hip-hop, in the words of OG Q-Tip.

It was in response to Iggy Azalia’s rants about her role in pop-culture.

I don’t listen to her music. I listen to real hip-hop. Take that as you will. A lot of people might try to argue with me about the rights of all individuals to express themselves, and I agree. I also believe in the rights of individuals to choose what they consider to be dope, or wack.

In his album, Yeezus, I believe Kanye is doing something very specific. He is challenging the foundation of Western civilization which has been responsible for institutionalized oppression of African-Americans. More specifically, Kanye has adopted the philosophical grievances of ‘controversial’ german philosopher Frederich Nietzsche, by criticizing the religious dogma of the Judeo-Christian conception of reality, morality & behavior. The Ubermensch, or highest potential of the individual, is suppressed by pseudo-religious propaganda, which Nietzsche believed was responsible for the pollution of the concept of God. This process, he called the “death of God.”

In a recent article he published, rapper Ras Kass explains the meaning behind his song, “How To Kill God”, in which he elaborated on the association between religious dogma & oppression of African-Americans and other minorities.

There is a tendency for American media outlets to lose it when artists, philosophers or popular figures of any persuasion make critical comments about the Judeo-Christian concept of God. It is quickly associated with fanaticism. The irony?

Movies like Exodus do no justice is portraying history. The Jews were probably not white. The jews, who are subjects of persecution, probably were & still are black, eastern, oriental.

When artists like Kanye West make bold claims like “I Am a God”, I could care less whether he believes it or not, because Kanye West isn’t the one brutalizing Africans in America & slaughtering children in the Middle East. I believe Kanye West’s message is to shake up the foundations of America so as to expose the hypocrisies and double-standards of this country which work against movements for collective consciousness.

The message of hip-hop has always been a positive one. It is just that, true freedom is often misunderstood and false portrayed. Hip-Hop & its artists, the genuine ones, fight to wake up the modern man, who has been sedated by forces of collectivism, conformity & power.

The immigration system in America must be fixed before it is too broken.

I am an immigrant in this country and I will say that I have suffered quite enough going through the bureaucratic system, having my case delayed and delayed, waiting for D.C. politicians to make up their mind on immigration policy.

In order to have better control over the flow of immigrants into and out of the country, America must improve its security apparatus, but on top of that, it has to address the source of the problem too, on top of dealing with the immigrants who are already here.

The source of the problem is a matter of international relations and global politics, as most immigrants escape countries that are war-torn, impoverished, or tightly controlled by an authoritative government. Such is the case with Cuba, Syria, Russia, Mexico, etc. 

In order for America to truly serve its immigration problem not just in the short term but also in the long term, it must address these issues of global politics.

As for the immigrants who have live here in the U.S. and who struggle to be treated as normal human beings, citizens with the same rights and privileges as any other human being and American, it is time for us all to to relieved, and to be granted the opportunity to pursue a life of prosperity and happiness.

To all the places in the world from where immigrants escape daily to avoid misery, I pray for you all, that you find justice and freedom too.


Let me make something clear by stating that President Morsi’s hatred for Jews and Zionists is a sham.

If anything, its this sort of religious fanaticism that Israel plays on.

See America? See why we have control/secure the Middle East?

Mr. Morsi, Bassem Youssef is free to do as he pleases…as is Jon Stewart, who ironically, has taken the liberty of criticizing Israeli policy in the past.

* * *

Mr. Morsi is no Muslim. Mr. Morsi is an Islamist. His religion is Islamism, not Islam. His followers are either fearful, ignorant, uneducated, or simply fanatical. Nonetheless, they do nothing but pose a danger to Egypt’s stability. Moreover, they weaken the possibilities of a liberal democracy flourishing in Egypt.

As for Syria, according to an article on the U.K.’s The Telegraph [click here for link to article], the Syrian government has reported that its army has captured thirteen French Soldiers on Syrian soil.

Not surprisingly, and yet somehow surprisingly, the French government denied these claims, though not absolutely, according to the Telegraph article.

Opponents of Asad would say this is pro-Asad propaganda, initiated either by the West or whomever else they can blame. As for supporters of the regime, this find might only reinforce their predispositions: the so-called ‘Syrian Revolution’ is a foreign conspiracy.

French troops or not, the position of the Asad regime and its internal supporters as well as international sympathizers remains: a foreign conspiracy meant to destabilize the country and further the goals of colonialists in region is unraveling.

The truth is ominous, as always, but when all the murkiness fades, and all emotions are set aside, it becomes more and more apparent that perception is molded by one, ultimate factor:

Conviction.

So, in the midst of all the political mayhem ensuing, I am forced to ask:

What do you believe?


The Syrian National Council is not representative of the Syrian people.

That is precisely why it exists outside of Syria, is operated by Syrians who have fled the country with the help of precisely every nation whose interests are vested in toppling Assad and replacing the nation’s government with a western-satellite.

Leader of the SNC Mr. Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib has just resigned because he believes there is too much Islamist influence on the council as well as foreign influence from nations like Qatar.

Ironic, because nations like Qatar, in other words the entire Gulf region including Saudi Arabia, is a western-satellite, designed to strategically serve the West’s economic and geopolitical interests.

The following excerpt comes from BBC:

The SNC chose US-based Islamist Ghassan Hitto to head the alternative administration, which is intended to govern rebel-held areas from inside Syria.

Does that say Islamist?

Wait, I thought the U.S. feared Islamists. I thought it killed Islamists…

Oh but this is Syria…


Let’s just pretend there was never a Henry Kissinger who tried to remap the Middle East to his liking aka the liking of Israel. Let’s just act like Anwar Sadat never got played by the Israelis and the Americans. Let’s just act like Israel does not coordinate U.S. foreign policy. David Frum, you go on the internet and say stupid things like the world believes there is a Jewish conspiracy behind every major political event. The funny thing is there is no belief in a conspiracy. It is no conspiracy. There is nothing secret about Israel’s grasp over the White House (which has much more to do with religious demographics and economic assets than anything else). There is nothing of a conspiracy here. It is plain and simple — Israel uses its lobbying forces in America to sway the U.S. and whatever other country it can (usually the U.K., France, etc,) to do as it pleases in order to protect not only Israel’s existence, but to harbor what actually its overall objective — to reestablish Eretz Israel. This delusion, which is fueled by a denial of history, is the driving force of Israeli foreign and domestic policy. Never ask, however, why Eretz Israel was lost in the first place, or, what rational basis any nation has to justify the killing of others and global destabilization in the name of messianic aspirations? Sounds like the Fourth Reich to me. 

Syria, Homs & Civil War Notes January 17th 2013 5:04 A.M.

In an interview with RT Syrian President Bashar al-Assad denied allegations of a full fledged Syrian civil war. There could be no functioning state if this was a full fledged civil war, he argues. Whether this is accurate or not, no one can be fully sure, nor about the fate of Syria.

How many more people must die? How much longer must Syrians, and the rest of the Arab world, including Palestinians, suffer from political unrest and injustice?

American Duty


Our duty as Americans is to understand the source of our national problems in order to improve our image as a nation and to improve relations with other nations. Our job is not to eradicate evil, but to weaken it, to stifle it, and to secure Justice. All pessimists are just unambitious lazy people who have nothing better to do than be pretentious. God bless America, save Palestine, and free the world from the ignorance of injustice.
