Colonialism! Hip-hop! Appropriation! It’s a bit of all of the above in this episode. Ahmed talks to Mona Haydar about the video for her song Hijabi, what it means for a Syrian-American to rap, and dealing with microaggressions. Then, Ahmed plays a game of “Did the English Steal This Word From Your People?” with real-life meme, college freshman, and artist of bitterness Kiren Rizvi.
