On the long-awaited conclusion of our two-part series, Raggo Zulu Rebel Emeritus: The Eloquence of a Scribe, we discuss the following with Raggo Zulu Rebel:
- An in-depth analysis of Raggo’s album Necromancy
- The importance of understanding political economy, specifically understanding the superstructure as it pertains to Africanity/Blackness in Western societies
- The comfort in the malaise and isolation people experience due to social media and how that relates to Guy Debord’s Society of the Spectacle
- A critical critique of hashtag movements.
and, much more!
In addition to and in conjunction with the dialogue with Raggo, we discuss how Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Ayi Kwei Armah’s Two Thousand Seasons, and Anthony Sampson’s Black & Gold Tycoons, Revolutionaries and Apartheid work elucidates the necessity of imperialism (via colonial domination) to foster divisions amongst the colonized population. The divisions created by the colonizer are merely the first tools of ideological and psychological domination of the colonized, for the goal of the colonizer is cultural hegemony. The apogee of this phenomena is apparent when the colonized internalize the colonizer’s most potent ideological weapon…INDIVIUALISM!!!
