I have been reading about the case of the Jena 6 in the US. The issue deals with racism in the legal system, black kids not getting the equal application of justice that they deserved. Too much punishment was meted out the teens for assaulting a white student. The incident happened when three white students hung nooses on a tree in school.
I came across this news article about hip-hop artists taking up the issue of the Jena 6. Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Common and M1 from Dead Prez. The linked up with the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, a group that I got to know about when their representative visited the Philippines last year. MXGM does real organizing work among black communities, even wanting to learn how we in the Philippines do our organizing work in prison.
Filipino hip-hop artists can be inspired the solidarity work being done by hip-hop artists abroad.
