I only came across this performance today, and I thought it’s too good not to share: this is Kai Davis’ and Safiya Washington’s take on Hipster Racism, presented at the semi-finals of the 2012 Brave New Voices. To be clear: it is a performance, not a nuanced analysis of racism and the role it plays in gentrification, for example, and it does not have to be; it is still so spot-on in many ways... <3… You can find more “spoken word poems” by Davis and Washington here on Women and Media, for example.
