ANSWER TO THE QUESTION
Hip Hop Feminism
Durham et al. (2013) assert that hip-hop and feminism are intertwined. While artists like Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj seek to elucidate the present-day issues affecting the black woman, they are inadvertently categorized as individuals who objectify their bodies. Hip-hop feminism can be employed to evaluate the gender-specific segmentation of the music genre.
While in the past, nationalism and identity was mainly guided by race, the neo-identity is pegged on social differences. As has been noted in the response to disasters like Hurricane Katrina, the disaster was regarded as one that triumphed race and it was about the pervasiveness of poverty in the lives of its victims (Giroux, 2006). Moreover, Tadiar (2012) elucidates the emerging role of social stratification in the characterization of the modern identity.
The Trump administration has continuously utilized the “Shock Doctrine” which is the tendency to enforce policies that would otherwise be unpopular (Klein, 2017). The Trump government has installed business leaders in strategic positions, and these appointments have nothing to do with service to the people since they owe their allegiance to the corporate elite. These recent actions are a pointer to the disregard of racial undertones in the society and the embracing of social stratification as the new benchmark.
Brown dreams is the last poem in Shraya’s collection, Even this Page is White and it debunks the matter of white privilege. By making the statement, Shraya demystifies the perceived superiority of the white skin. In the poem Brown dreams, the author asks, “have you ever heard white question its colour” (Shraya, 2016). The question is a jibe thrown at neo-racists, and it is meant to show that we do not have any control over our skin color. The writer then also says, “what if there is no right way to be brown, besides the brown you are” (Shraya, 2016). Being colored in a racial society as the current one is akin to shouldering the social burden of having the “wrong” skin color. Is it our fault that we are born with our skin color? Is the emerging onslaught on democracy and public order by the rich and the corporate world ethical? Racism has been a contentious issue since time immemorial, therefore, its continued domination of social and scholarly discourse should be explored. The attack on public order by the rich has mitigated issues like racism; however, the new social order also has its constraints which should be outlined.
Tadiar (2012) explores the modern capitalism and the emergence of financial capitalism and the domain that monetary capital enjoys over the world. The prospects of a fiscal hegemony over traditional social differentiations like race may not be far-fetched. Additionally, the categorization of the society by financial capitalism has led to new groupings like the financially emancipated skilled and creative personnel on one side and the unsavory unskilled individuals who occupy the manufacturing sectors of the developing world. The existence of this differentiation has no care for an individual’s pigment, but for their financial or mental might.
Giroux (2006) unearths the repressive facets of the American society that have been precipitated by fascist leanings which define a social environment where some individuals are regarded as dispensable. The responses to the Hurricane Katrina disaster are a pointer towards the tendency by the government to “ration” its aid towards “undeserving” populations.
