VIDEO: LENON HONOR: BEYOND GANGSTER BLACKFACE/ GANGSTA RAP AS SOCIAL ENGINEERING



DOWNLOAD LINK:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/17c2g10y4eltrxp/Good+Vibrations+podcast%2C+Vol.+106_+Lenon+Honor_+Beyond+Gangster+Blackface.mp3
 

Much respect to Darren Brady for compiling this illustrative visual montage to go my recent Lenon Honor interview.

Lenon Honor is a researcher, musician, counsellor, public speaker and film-maker who returns to Good Vibrations for his third appearance.

Lenon has just released his ground-breaking new documentary ‘Beyond Gangster Blackface: A Critical Analysis of Gangster Rap’ which has been two years in the making. The film looks at how the genre of hip-hop known as ‘gangsta rap’ - and the output of the group NWA in particular - affected an entire generation’s attitudes and perceptions of black people and their lifestyles. Lenon’s statistical analysis of the main themes addressed in NWA’s lyrics throws up some shocking results. The film goes a lot further than just the hip-hop element, however, its 12 interviewees delving into issues such as social-engineering and the targeted destruction of the family dynamic, male-female relationships, and historical stereotypes of African-Americans.

Along the way the conversation encompasses such subjects as the East Coast/ West Coast beef in hip-hop, ‘diss’ records, self-aggrandisement, police brutality, the historical tradition of ‘playing the dozens’, and the legacy left by the Blaxploitation movies of the early 1970s.

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 105: CARA ST LOUIS



DOWNLOAD LINK:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/n632b3gh4d06b6t/Good+Vibrations+podcast%2C+Vol.+105_+Cara+St+Louis.mp3

American writer, teacher, activist and speaker  Cara St Louis takes the GV hot seat, as we get into some deep territory. Cara reflects on why it is that we live in a ‘natural’ world where daily violence and horror, through creatures killing each other for food, is our daily reality. Were things always this way, or did this reality become infected with some malevolent influence at some point in the remote past, and we’re merely seeing the inevitable physical playout of a dynamic rooted in low-density, fear-based vibration? Cara goes on to ask why we even need to eat at all, and if the idea that we do is in fact nothing more than a rigidly-enforced belief system.


We go a whole lot of other places in this free-flow conversation, too.
