My friends and I from the FAAN Mail Project have this idea. We want to start filming our informal conversations about pop-culture, media, intersections of race/class/gender/sexuality–and put them online. Through these dialouges, we are modeling active audiences and making “feminist discourse” accessible to people who go on youtube, but may not read blogs or scholarly journals.
So… here’s our first one. It happened after coming across a blog post about a recent Jay Z interview about his new book “Decoded” where he admits that he regrets his lyrics that disrespect women.
Now, goofiness aside, i think we raise some interesting questions.
We wondered… is this sincere or is this about publicity for his new book? does his regret matter? what does his growth mean for hip hop?
