Rudolph Ware on Malcolm X, Palestine and dismantling white supremacy

Well before Israel declared war on Gaza last October, Professor Rudolph Ware, also known as Butchware, was rallying for pro-Palestine rights.

Inspired by reading Malcolm X's autobiography when he was just 14-years-old, Ware believes Malcolm X would have justified Palestinian resistance against Israeli occupation and oppression.

In this episode of UNAPOLOGETIC, Ware explains how 'exemplary violence' was used to dehumanise slaves and how the same tactic is being used by Israel against the Palestinians while 'liberal media' and 'liberal powers' are providing Israel cover.

He also speaks about white supremacy.

He criticises people who are platforming commentators such as Candace Owens on Palestine as "hurtful" to the black community and damaging true solidarity.

He pulls no punches. Shaun King, LeBron James, Colin Kaepernick, Trevor Noah and the “crocodile tears” that are used to justify the spilling of the blood of brown and black people all come under the microscope.

UNAPOLOGETIC is a show that unapologetically looks at the life, times and views of some unapologetic and not so unapologetic humans. Hosted by Ashfaaq Carim
