Great interview with Immortal Technique at Latinrapper.com. A little sample:
Certain rap artists have stated that they wouldn’t vote in the presidential election because they feel neither political party has the interests of minorities in mind. What’s your take??
IT: The greediest most money grubbing people I ever met in my life were corporate conservative leeches. And these are the people that are digging into their pockets to give the Bush Cheney campaign non tax refundable money. They are giving them money because they know that your vote counts, they care more about their money than they care about life, and they are willing to invest in us, in getting our vote by buying adds, propaganda and such. If they believe in our vote then why shouldn’t we. Let us become our own voting block, and build the type of respect and power that the lobbyists for the bible belt of white America have. People will not listen to Black and Latino people until we make them listen, our votes will make them listen, and I know we tried that last year but Revolution isn’t fought on one battle field, I think every hardcore anarchist can take 15 minutes out of their schedule in early Nov. and try to get rid of emperor Bush.”
In lighter news, Ultragrrrl has finally topped herself. This girl makes the stratosphere whimper.
