1. Yasiin Bey, a/k/a Mos Def, Force-Fed Under Standard Guantánamo Bay Procedure (VIDEO).


    A controversial new video posted by online UK news outlet, The Guardian, features Yasiin Bey , a/k/a Mos Def, demonstrating the standard procedure by which Guantánamo Bay detainees on hunger strike are force-fed.

    The Guardian:

    As Ramadan begins, more than 100 hunger-strikers in Guantánamo Bay continue their protest. More than 40 of them are being force-fed. A leaked document sets out the military instructions, or standard operating procedure, for force-feeding detainees. In this four-minute film made by Human Rights organisation Reprieve and Bafta award-winning director Asif Kapadia, US actor and rapper Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), experiences the procedure.

      He is a real MAN for doing that. You want to send a message, you believe in this so much, that you would subject yourself to a procedure like that. When I first heard him screaming stop I could tell he was not acting that. He even had to say "This is me, stop". You saw it in his eyes. Pupils can't do that on demand, no matter how good at acting you are.

      Massive propers for that. For a Teacha to go that far is just beyond words.

      Loveletter to the 60's/80's .......because the 21st Century is void of liberal anger and testosterone, this will be intellectualized and filed away to the MoMa before we can blink.
      Rednecks are angry, Ted Nugent is angry, Racist twitter millennials are angry, the bigot cast of Big Brother are angry, Paula Deen is angry, the angry Supreme Court just made sure the NEXT 40+ POTUS will never sing Al Green in the name of America again...

      Respect to the Reprieve project and Yasiin .....but I gotta go cop that Samsung joint ....." Who taught you how to go cop that MCHG? " ...." Yeezus taught Me well! "

      Did anyone else get an error msg come up just as the procedure was about to begin? I couldn't play the video from that point. Sabotage perhaps? Somebody doesn't want me to watch this.
