An Interview With Ali Abunimah

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 25, 2007

Laila El-Haddad interviewed Palestinian journalist Ali Abunimah in her blog Raising Yousuf, Unplugged: diary of a Palestinian Mother:

Ok, I’ve promised you a post on this for a while. And it just hasn’t happened.
Frankly, I was waiting first for Aljazeera to run an interview I did with Ali Abu Nimah, co-founder of the Electronic Intifada and author of One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse.

The State of Corporate Hip-Hop

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 25, 2007

Paris speaks his mind about the current mainstream hip-hop scene in the blog Black Agenda Report:

The argument in response could be made in defense of labels that if they don’t respond to the streets then the music will just go underground. Huh? WHAT underground? Do you know how much good material is marginalized because it doesn’t fit white cooperate America’s ideals of acceptability? Independents can’t get radio or video play anymore, at least not through commercial outlets, and most listeners don’t acknowledge material that they don’t see or hear regularly on the radio or on T.V. Very few of us are willing to actually seek out material and messages to identify with. As with anything in our fast food culture, we want our entertainment choices fast and in our collective face. For most listeners, all the rest need not apply.

I’m extending the deadline for submissions to the first Carnival of Radical Feminists (which might be renamed, so stay tuned :)) to Sunday, April 29, to give everyone more time to submit great radical feminist blog posts, which you can submit by going here. The submissions I’ve already received are awesome!
