The trilogy is complete. CunninLynguists put out the final part of their Rose Azura Njano series. Like many, I thought after The Rose EP and The Azura EP we would hear a Njano EP, but it turns out Deacon the Villain, Kno, and Natti surprised us by releasing their first full album in six years.
For this week I had originally planned a short and simple post on the new Grieves album, but I think there are some words left to be said about the German election results. Nothing new really, and I will keep it very short as the results simply continue in the same direction of Brexit, Trump, etc.
This spring, one of my favorite hip hop groups CunninLynguists finally came out with a new EP, “The Rose EP” which I wrote about here. It’s part of a series of three EPs, and the second part was released in late July containing another three tracks.
In discussions about racism, the focus is usually on mainstream society and its treatment of ethnic minorities. What is not usually discussed is the racism within those communities themselves.
Brother Ali has been one of my favorite rappers ever since “Shadows on the Sun” came out. I was immediately hooked on the subject matter, rhymes, and flow, and, of course, Ant's (of Atmosphere) production.
Privilege is something that has often been discussed in recent years but rarely understood. One group of people that is often overlooked but could potentially explain the issue to those who enjoy privilege are people of mixed ethnicity. In this post, I want to shed some light on the issue from my own perspective and experience.
It's been two and a half years since we last heard a release from one of my favorite hip hop groups CunninLynguists, but they finally came out with a new EP. The Rose EP contains three tracks, which might be considered short even for an EP. However, as per usual, CunninLynguists put out a piece of art that is perfectly on point from the concept itself, to the lyrics, the artwork, and the production. As far as I‘m concerned, a three-track CunninLynguists EP is worth significantly more than a double album from many other so-called artists.
For a while now I have been thinking about writing a blog post in German. When I write about social justice issues in English the focus automatically shifts to North America, even though there is so much to say about Europe, and Germany in particular. That’s why today’s post is going to be in German. I might translate it in the future or post a summary.
Intersectionality and the privilege of white vegan men are finally being discussed at a higher rate in the vegan movement. However, many people still don't understand the terms "intersectionality" and "privilege" - and others outright refuse to acknowledge these concepts.
Muslim women who don’t wear hijab are in the unfortunate position to get a lot of outrageous comments from Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
While I understand that non-Muslims don’t necessarily know a lot of things about Islam and may want to ask certain questions there are some things that are really insensitive. Some questions are better left to Google if you’re not willing to actually read a book on the matter.
On the other end of the spectrum, many fellow Muslims tend to feel like somehow their commentary is actually welcome.
In order to make things very simple for everyone, I hereby present to you the twelve things you should never say to a Muslim woman who doesn’t wear hijab.
