Hip Hop War Report Episode 15 (Jena 6, Rev Yearwood Assault, General AMIR)

<p>Welcome to a new episode of the Hip Hop War Report. Today we bring you breaking news involving the Jena 6 travesty and a recent hate crime of similar nature that occurred at the University of Maryland. Sue Ying will brief everyone on the Jena 6 case and its latest developments. Bashir will chime in and give you the truth behind the hate crime that the University of Maryland won't even acknowledge as an act of terror. Bashir speaks with Solomon Commissiong who is Assistant Director of Student Involvement and Public Relations on campus at the Nyumburu Cultural Center. Solomon and 2 of his colleagues give us the true breakdown of what took place as well as the current emotional state on campus. <p>

 

 

<p>Before we even get to that we have to shed light on a gross injustice by US Capitol Police on a very dear friend of the Hip Hop War Report. Reverend Lennox Yearwood was brutally attacked by US Capitol Police simply for exercising his right to appear at a public hearing on Capitol Hill. Minister Yearwood is the president of the Hip Hop Caucus a organization which strives for political and social change. The Hip Hop Caucus organizes youth to get actively involved in issues of war, poverty, racial injustice and the environment. Please go to www.hiphopcaucus.org and support this movement.<p>

Rev. Yearwood released, charged with assaulting a police officer:

 

Part of increasing Capitol Hill crackdown on voices of dissent


Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., President of the Hip Hop Caucus, was released from custody yesterday evening, after his arraignment. He is charged with assaulting a police officer and disorderly conduct outside of the hearing room on Capitol Hill where Gen. Petraeus gave testimony on
Iraq this past Monday.

 

Rev. Yearwood gave this statement yesterday after his arraignment hearing: "My role is to make government more transparent to the people, especially people of color. How am I supposed to convince other African-Americans to come to Capitol Hill to participate in democracy, when Capitol Police will go so far as to jump me when I question my exclusion from a hearing that is open to the public? We all know what ‘driving while Black‘ is, well I would call this ‘democracy while Black.‘ Rev. Yearwood was being excluded from the hearing room, because, according to the lieutenant on the scene, he was not in line. Witnesses attest to the fact that Rev. Yearwood was in line, but he was denied a blue post-it note ticket without reason when Police handed them out down the line shortly before they started letting people enter.

Rev. Yearwood suffered severe injuries to his ankle when Police used excessive force, but said "Crutches won‘t stop me from marching in the streets against the occupation of Iraq and the despicable immorality of our current Administration and Congress."

 

The assault on Minister Yearwood was captured on video tape and is all over youtube. Please click these links to witness for yourself. Also forward them to everybody you know.  

We end the podcast with a very special guest as AKIR interviews General AMIR from 5th Column. AMIR stops thru to put us down on his latest marketing venture titled www.SpitYourBestVerse.com

SpitYourBestVerse.Com was started by artists for artists. This site is dedicated to recognizing quality forms of expression through a popular vote. You the listener can evaluate the verses you see and hear on this site and decide who can spit and who can't.

As we all know many artists are infected with the yesmen that surround them. These yesmen will say "YES" to any verse that they hear from their friends even if the verse is wack. Our goal here at SpitYourBestVerse.Com is to give artists a pure canvas to display their art without the bias opinions of friends and loved ones. Post your work on SpitYourBestVerse.Com to find out if you should spit it or quit it.
