I wonder if Chuck D understands why RT is giving him this platform.
Whatever the reason, chuck d
is on point.
As I've said before,
There is no such thing as value-free objectivity.
do you suspect any reason why rt would give chuck d that platform?
And in addition,
What are your thoughts regarding what d mentioned "Dumbassification of America"?
Yes. It's the same reason why China gave Richard Williams a platform.. and Cuba gave Asatta a platform.. it has to do with those nations relationship with our government. RT stands for Russia Today.. it is a political platform for criticism of the US government. The cold war between Russian and America never actually ended.. it only changed forms. Chuck's truth is being used to meet RTs purposes. And that should matter to Chuck.
Whether something is "True" or not is not the only consideration that matters. Context is still everything.
I don't know.. Chuck was all over the place.. The interviewer didn't really respond to most of the things he said.. she just asked the next question.. and so it seems like he was getting lost in his words.. just sort of rambling... it was 3 in the morning though..
Similar to how s. smith was being used by espn to "put the black community in its place".
Though let me state for the record, that I knew what rt meant, which says alot and don't
expect, even from them, value-free objectivity.
