N.Y.OIL SPEAKS ON BARACK OBAMA & JESSE JACKSON

N.Y.OIL SPEAKS ON BARACK OBAMA & JESSE JACKSON!!!

The buzzing and widely-renowned emcee N.Y.OIL, known for the controversy that has arisen over his no-holds barred examination of hip-hop culture, turns his focus to matters of politics, and the fiasco that has recently embroiled Jesse Jackson over his comments regarding Barack Obama.

Spitting a spoken word for the award winning BBC radio program “World This Week” (on which he is a regular fixture), N.Y.OIL astutely breaks down the messages of fear implanted in Jesse Jackson’s comments, without failing to similarly put Obama on the hotseat regarding his promise of “new-paradigm” politics.

N.Y.OIL takes a nuanced approach to the posturing and punditry, in delicately analyzing both the history of Jesse Jackson’s life and his role within the civil rights struggle, the constant struggle to stem disunity within African-American culture itself, and the hope (espoused by Obama and his supporters) that race relations, poverty and apathy can be faced head on in the coming years.

N.Y.OIL speaks truth to power in this piece, a reflection of the underlying methodology (and ideology) that has heretofore defined his career as an emcee and spoken word poet.
