Teaching Yebin a lesson (x)
One of my absolute favorite Malcolm X quotes
The Malcom X they don’t show you.
Her appropriation of AAVE is so disgusting.
Does she use AAVE in everyday talking? Or just when rapping?
The second part of this podcast is about the work of Pat Torres and Valerie Sibosado, entrepreneurial elders promoting local food and the many things it can do for the local people of Broome.
I recommend watching the “First Australians” documentary directed by Rachel Perkins. It’s a seven part documentary series and is told from the perspective of Australia’s First Peoples. The full documentary can be found here. It’s very enjoyable and each episode is around an hour long, so you’ll get a lot out of it. Any other recommendations by my followers are also welcome!
Our Generation is an independent documentary film, made over 3 years, that looks at the current state of Indigenous relations in Australia, home to the oldest living culture in the world. Driven by the remote Yolngu peoples of Northeast Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, the film shines a light on the ongoing struggle of Aboriginal people to their culture, lands and basic human rights. It is a call for understanding and action, for black and white Australians to come together to challenge the ongoing racism and assimilation that lie hidden in the “lucky country”. It is also a cry for freedom, on the frontier between worlds, that resonates with the struggles of Indigenous peoples across the globe.
There has been an angry backlash after the judge of an Indigenous art prize in Broome decided none of the entries were worthy of winning the prize.
Local Aboriginal artists are particularly offended because the judge - Perpetua Durack Clancy - is the daughter of Elizabeth Durack, who sold her work under the guise of a fictional male Aboriginal artist in a major art controversy in the 1990s.
it’s called AAVE, you FUCKTRUCK
