moniquelamarre asked: Part 2: Another student informed me that hip hop is about the discussion of racism and sexism and that homophobia is not as important. The class ran out of time so I did not have the opportunity to thank them for reinforcing homophobia and for reminding us of one of the many reasons people do not talk about who they are. I am looking for an article to bring them to class on Thursday, I have some work by Patricia Hill Collins, but I am looking for other suggestions. Thank you for your time
Hip hop, as I knew it, was about resistance. Capitalism has perverted that narrative and made it about consumerism.
One book that I know of that speaks directly to homoantagonism in hip hop and how hip hoppers have been hoodwinked in that regard is:
Hip-Hop Homophobes: Origin and Attitudes Towards Gays and Lesbians in Hip-Hop Culture as Perpetrated by Rappers, Thugs, Athletes, Reggae Rastas, and Religionists; Essays on the 3,000 Year Old Polemic Against Homosexuality; A Religious Hoax! by Khalil Amani, S.A.
Bible: New Testament Jude, verse 13.
Recalling the Book of Enoch, in which fallen angels were condemned to be stars.

Leopardman vs good missionary: Belgium revamps its Museum for Central Africa
Guido Gryseels, director of the Museum for Central Africa (RMCA) in Tervuren in suburbs of Brussels, talks to the press in the front gallery of the museum. The world’s “last” colonial museum, Belgium’s dusty Royal Museum of Central Africa, closes this month to re-emerge in 2017 with a new vision of Africa more than 50 years after Congo’s independence.

I just heard members of Chicago Women’s Health Collective speak on radical slowness as it applies to collective work. Such an important reminder.
