Lil Boosie was one of the first rappers to stand up for the LBGTQ community. He even says, “And If Boosie was a preacher, I’d marry y’all” but Macklemore is the one y’all want to put on a pedestal.
Sustained anti-government rallies in Thailand, Ukraine and Venezuela have captured the attention of millions. But large pro-democracy demonstrations in Burkina Faso last month largely escaped the Western media’s radar.
Since January, tensions have flared between the West African country’s authoritarian government and the impoverished masses yearning for democratic reforms. Depending on how developments unfold, the protests in Burkina Faso could serve as a catalyst for further uprisings in the region."
On February 19th, 2014, we started a hashtag called #ummahantiblackness to examine structural discrimination worldwide in Muslim-majority nations. We looked at policies that have marginalized ethnic minorities, such as the Gnawa in Morocco, the Nubians in Egypt and Sudan or Haratine, in Mauritania, as well as Sub-Saharan African migrants to North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. We shared heartbreaking stories of human trafficking in Lebanon, accounts of the mistreatment of refugees in Egypt, and cultural and political legacies of the African Diaspora.
Through this Twitter campaign, we hoped to learn more about the stories of Black Muslims globally, amplifying their voices. Their lives shed light on the many intersections of race, ethnicity, culture, gender, class, and religion, as well as the linkages that connect us all.
