Hip-Hop, Mass Media and 21st Century Colonization

Ytzhak | The tremendous amount of hip-hop created that does not suit this
political need, which again is primary, is simply omitted. And
without this current analysis, even our brightest thinkers ignorantly
suggest, as did Michael Eric Dyson recently on Paula Zahn's CNN
special on the subject, that to be successful (i.e. "popular")
politically conscious artists need "better beats."...Zbigniew Brzezinski, in defense of this system, explained this
reality quite clearly when writing in The Grand Chessboard (1997)
that what will separate the United States as an empire from those of
the past is this nation's control over "international communication
and popular entertainment. " Media today are more pervasive, powerful,
and capable of the maintenance of colonialism than at any other time
in world history. This is the result of the intentional and
concomitant rise of both mass media technology and their consolidated
ownership in the hands of the world's only true "minority" elite:
white men. more...  1 Comments
