"Blue grass" beatdown, and "Wacka Flocka Flame."


Who said the tea party folks were soft? They didn't seem that soft in Kentucky recently. That was a blue grass beatdown if I ever saw one. Or, as my man Rippa called it: A "Kirk Franklin approved...."Rand Paul Somp." It won't be long before politics here in A-merry-ca looks like politics in my country. As the rich folks continue to get richer, those of us left behind will continue to beat up on each other while we fight for what little scraps they leave us.

Honestly, WTF is that Rand Paul supporter so angry about that he has to put a beat down on that young woman? (Yes, I said woman) And, if I am going to be fair, I have to ask the same thing of the SEIU folks who went all Floyd Mayweather on some black wingnut from the Lou. Do you see that folks? I am consistent. I am not condoning violence on either side.

Here is the thing, A-merry-ca: you don't have to be this angry. You live in A-merry-ca. I am pretty sure that if either a dem or a repub gets elected you will still have your three bedroom two bath home in suburbia. You will still be able to buy dog food for Fido, and your kids will still be able to attend a school in a....ahhm...safe environment. So relax. It's not like you live in a Third World country or anything. Not yet. The uber rich will give you just enough to keep you thinking that one day, if you are lucky, (and if those evil tax loving democrats stay out of your way) you will be just as rich as they are. "Pursuing happiness is much easier if you are rich. It's no wonder that wingnut went nuts (pun intended) in Kentucky. He wants to be rich; just like his heroes. If only the folks on the left would see it his way. I am sure he is thinking that we all could be rich together.

Finally, could you all peep this Wacka Flocka parody of his O ness and tell me what you think?

I am curious about something. It's a little sociological study I am doing for my dissertation while I study for my doctorate in fieldology. Thanks.

Right Wing 'tough guys' attacking women now. I would love to run into one of them some day. They'll get shown how 'tough' they really are. Like we use to said back in the day, I wouldn't hit them, I would smack them like the b----es they are.

Lefties are no match against Tea Party right wing folks. They are fighters-everyone knows that. So don't piss them off. That woman got off easy because she was White. If she had been Black, she probably would be in the hospital.

Wesly R, Pleeeze. Those right wing white guys would beat your ass seven ways to Sunday. Pray you or anybody on this blog do not ever meet up with one of them on a bad day cause that might be your ass.

Field,
Back in the good ole U.S. of A., in time for elections. This kind of crazy is hard to explain to those outside the borders and too mundane to raise eyebrows here.

As for Rand Paul's and Joe Miller's thugs, well, you can't spell Kristallnacht without that first (R). We shall see what happens on Tuesday, but I think the RNC and their host of paid trolls are going to be disappointed.

It's more stinking rap crap that degrades Blacks, the President, Michelle and their daughters. It's ugly and a turn off. It certainly plays into the hands of Whites who say Blacks are drug addicts, ignorant, dumb and ugly.

Just goes to show you, there are Blacks disrespect and could care less about Obama. Of course, I don't expect any Field Negroes on this blog to admit that.

This video is very offensive and pathetic. It makes a statement about the consciousness that permeates the black community. that's why Blacks of any self-respect should move.

Field,
As silly as the "Wacka Flocka parody" was I couldn't help but smile knowing that everyone in L.A. has a camera and sound systems and when the ice cream truck rolled up at 2:50 minutes I burst out laughing.....Ice cream trucks patrol the streets more than the LAPD and go up and down every street in SoCal........that's not a bad thing.

I am in a hurry field, I'm watching Boston get in Miami's ass, but I had to stop by. Any post that included Kirk Franklin, Floyd Mayweather, Angry White folks, RiPPa and Wacka Facka Fools, and written by a field negro, had to be something I can share with my children.

But then I thought, field don't go to church, he know nothing about boxing *smile*, he's asking for advice on Wanka Flaka, and he's not white, so damn, I am left with 2 islanders talking smack.

OH NO! Miami is coming back! It's a 3 point game. I'll be back.

Well, judging from the responses to the Wacka Flocka,- Blacks on this blog don't take themselves seriously. BTW, neither do Whites...So, who does...nobody?

"Finally, could you all peep this Wacka Flocka parody of his O ness and tell me what you think?"

That parody is some ignorant nonsense, pure coonery and buffoonery. It is a modern day minstrel show. It is reminiscent of Birth of a Nation, the part when they show black people eating watermelon in Congress with their feet propped up on the tables. It sickens to see my people degrade themselves.

You're a jurist, Mr. Field, could you please explain to me why those Rand Paul Tea Thugs aren't in jail?

Field, "Finally, could you all peep this Wacka Flocka parody of his O ness and tell me what you think?"

Field, you certainly know the right audience to ask the question. Folks on this blog, aren't bothered by such degradation from other Blacks. Hell, we do it to each other everyday on FN.

Anyway, to answer your question, "It's exactly what I would expect from Blacks with no self-dignity or self-worth. They are the so-called typical shameless Field Negro who 'loves' the N-word-- inappropriate, ignorant, uneducated, dumb and ugly."

I'm not surprised about the Rand Paul incident. Anybody who would volunteer time to Rand Paul is already showing signs of warped thinking.

As for Wacka Flocka, it's more evidence that some people don't think through their actions and products. Call the drop squad, somebody, please.

Phil4Real said...

I have a 9mm and a pump for guys like that. It's getting to the point where talking is getting us nowhere, but on the other end of a boot. White people have lost their minds. Sooner or later it's going to get really ugly.

Baraka Floka video was pure tasteless. That's just what's needed, plenty of N'words, weed, and 40s during an election period.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Field, you ever been so pissed about something until you're completely speechless for the moment? Well...that's how I am feeling about the Wacka Flocka flick. That boy has given ignorance a new meaning and taken it to a whole nother level.

That man that stomped Lauren Valle needs to be charged with assault and battery and so should the other ones who helped him throw her to the ground. They are a bunch of cowardly woman beaters. Real men wouldn't do that!

Kentucky Stomper Identified As Paul's (Now Former) Bourbon County Coordinator

Looks like the plot thickens....

"Lefties are no match against Tea Party right wing folks. They are fighters-everyone knows that. So don't piss them off. That woman got off easy because she was White. If she had been Black, she probably would be in the hospital."

Said by someone who'd probably get knocked on his ass in a one-on-one fight. I've noticed how guys like you who are scared shitless of getting your teeth knocked out in an honest fight end up picking on weaker targets (i.e. most women, children) or simply gang up on an otherwise strong target.

"The uber rich will give you just enough to keep you thinking that one day, if you are lucky, (and if those evil tax loving democrats stay out of your way) you will be just as rich as they are. "Pursuing happiness is much easier if you are rich. It's no wonder that wingnut went nuts (pun intended) in Kentucky. He wants to be rich; just like his heroes. If only the folks on the left would see it his way. I am sure he is thinking that we all could be rich together."

The allure of sitting at the table with their rich "compatriots" or at the very least getting a few crumbs from the 15-course feast thrown their way keeps them going. They don't realise how their very livelihoods are being hollowed out and yet they're content to put the blame on everyone else (Democrats, Blacks, liberals, etc.) except their "conservative" idols. These guys don't care anything about them, only the dollar value their lives can bring. I don't think most these guys will get that until they can't buy any more dog food for Fido -- because they'll be chowing down on it themselves.

Improbable Joe said...

I have to say, the Barack parody video? I don't listen to much in the way of modern music, so I'm not familiar with the song it is ripping off. But I thought it was sort of funny, since Obama would never stoop to hanging out and eating some BBQ with regular folks unless there's a camera rolling. That, and I think the n-word becomes funny if someone says it enough times for no apparent reason in a certain context. I know it makes me a terrible person, and I'm not being sensitive to the blight of blah blah blah, but when you drop it 50-60 times in three minutes, the ridiculousness of it makes me giggle.

Jody said...

Field, agree whole heartedly, crazy is winding up and it is getting ugly out there! There will be charges brought against Miller's campaign manager. The Wacka video is offensive on so many levels.... but is supposed to be "just entertainment". What's this guy's excuse:

What's so new and controversial about the Wacka flocka parody? It's no different from the minstrels who "rap" about bitches and hos, and are sure to only showcase black women when doing so (perhaps if they also showcased white women, their careers would have been short lived, and we won't be having these issues). But hey...

So why are we surprised? These new "rap" minstrels have gotten out of hand now. Too late.

amen!

the entire rap genre became a parody because fools like wf took it over long ago!

It is truly ironic that a rich white male has chosen to pen a protest song.
Clearly, it is poor Black men like Diallo who bear the brunt of
epidemic police brutality and municipally sanctioned mass murders.
So, what are most of Springsteen's young Black male industry peers
singing about as he mourns Diallo? Money, booty, jewelry, pimping,
bimbos, cars, and other hedonistic madness!!!

What motivates a racist industry that showers any fool who can rhyme
with millions of dollars? Why are there no industry scouts grooming

Young people who were raised to believe that a college education guarantees them a spot in the middle class are instead grappling with rising levels of debt, stagnant wages and ballooning basic expenses, argues Mooney (I Can't Believe She Did That) in this affecting but thinly researched jeremiad. Mooney suggests that college graduates who choose creative or service professions, such as journalism, teaching and social work, generally find themselves in low-paying jobs that, paradoxically, require high-priced educations and even graduate degrees. The struggle to pay off student loans sets off a spiral of financial insecurity, as these educated professionals face escalating costs for housing, health insurance and child care. It's an interesting observation, but Mooney often doesn't delve deeply enough to create a true thesis; she does not fully examine the expectations that motivate graduates' decisions to choose to teach-their desire for meaningful work even at the expense of upward mobility-or their reluctance to leave expensive urban areas. Where Mooney backs up her points with solid research, she makes persuasive arguments, but she occasionally offers unsubstantiated generalizations and relies on research culled from interviews rather than hard data. For a more comprehensive treatment of this sobering trend, readers should turn to Warren and Tyagi's The Two-Income Trap or Up to Our Eyeballs, by analysts from liberal think tank Demos.

Journalist Mooney discusses the financial plight of the educated professional middle class that graduated from a four-year college 2 to 20 years ago and earns annually between $30,000 and $70,000 ($100,000 for couples). They have freely chosen careers in education, the arts, and public service, with relatively low-paying jobs requiring high-cost education. These professionals face increasing mortgage payments, student loans, credit-card debt, less help with health care, retirement, and child care, while the cost of living increases and wages are stagnant. The author candidly acknowledges the influence of our materialistic values and the spending craze throughout America. With information from more than 100 interviews of diverse families, the author’s recommendations include improved government-backed education, health- and child-care programs, along with tax reform and an emphasis on changing society’s attitude toward money. Some may not agree with Mooney, but she gives an excellent analysis of the problems facing the professional middle class.

One out of every 34 Americans who earned wages in 2008 earned absolutely nothing -- not one cent -- in 2009.

The stunning figure was released earlier this month by the Social Security Administration, but apparently went unreported until it appeared today on Tax.com in a column by Pulitzer Prize-winning tax reporter David Cay Johnston.

I'm a white, middle-aged male, and it went right by me, but so does rap and hip-hop, much like the Beatles, etc. did my parents back when I was young.

I thought it was foolish, feeding wingnut anger - but then everything does. It reminded me of the ways that we Jews make fun of other Jews, but at least in the past, we usually kept that kind of humor behind closed doors.

The failures of these global entities have not prevented President Obama from allowing their relatively free reign in relation to the US government. In June 2009, President Obama used his sixth signing statement to negate provisions of US legislation that would have compelled the World Bank to strengthen labor and environmental standards. When signing the $106 billion war-spending bill into law, Obama included a five-paragraph signing statement with the bill in which he also refused to require the Treasury Department to report to Congress on the activities of the World Bank and the IMF.

The sections rejected by Obama would have required his administration to direct its World Bank representatives to pressure that institution into using metrics that “fairly represent the value of internationally recognized workers” rights. Organized labor groups had pushed for a revision of those standards.

Wacka Flocka parody supports the Tea Party racist image of Blacks and Obama. "Very timely" video to see before election day. If the Dems and Obama weren't cooked before, they certainly are now.

It never ceases to amaze me how Black and White people can think of the most offensive evil ways to degrade and demean Obama, his family, bw, bm, and the Black race.

This beats the monkey photos by a long shot. I bet it's going to cost the Dems and aid the GOP and Tea Party on Nov2.

Seeing those offensive images in that video is enough for people to vote the Dems out of office. Yes, it time for a change...sorry Jody.

I am betting the Tea Party folks put a stop to offensive crap like Wacka Flocka... The Dems certainly won't.

Field said, "Well, you almost had me agreeing with you. But why should the folks with "self-worth" move? Why not stay in the community and try to lift it up?"

Anon answers: Field, do YOU live in a Black Community? Let me answer that for you...."NO". You know why? Because people with self-worth and self-dignity don't live in communities where people listen, dance and sing to the music that degrades them. Nevertheless, why don't YOU move into the black community in order to live by your OWN words? I'm sure Mrs. Field will have something to say about that...but hey, maybe you'll find Lisa Turtle hanging out there?

IMO, crap like Wacka Flocka only highlights one of the profound problems of self-image of the Black race. It is too far gone for anything to be done. Blacks of the mentality of Wacka Flocka(better known as Wacko-Fucks) now control the Black Community, along with the Street Pirates. Unless you are a bad fearless ass from the drop squad,-- then you are looking to 'get out' of the community, NOT stay in it.

But as a lawyer, why don't YOU propose laws to stop crap like that which destroys the minds of Blacks?

Do it with the zealousness that You do standing up for the rights and 'dignity' of Mexicans and Muslims.

Hey Field did you see that they interviewed the guy who admitted that he put his foot on the woman. He said that she owes him and his cronies an apology. He was on TV in a way that reminded me of the old Klan and the old south.

Imagine that, you assault someone and its on video and you get to strut around and blame the victim. Can you imagine if these were black folks? Do you think the TV stations would be actually interested in their side of the story and not criminalizing them?

I sure hope this guy and his cohorts have been charged and I hope that folks remain vigilant in this case.

And I'm sorry but the wocka flocka video made me laugh. Hell with black folks being in the position they are in this society they ought to be able to laugh and poke fun at themselves. Who cares if folks think its ignorant, the kids should be able to have fun hell they didn't create the ghettos and racism. And some folks think they are ignorant anyway so why can't they have a little fun. And it ain't like Obama is above being parodied with his playing it safe behind.

“Again,” Davis told Amy Goodman, “I would return to the election of Barack Obama. Barack Obama was elected despite that kind of a [business and prison] lobby, despite the power of money. And so, we have to continue the campaign for a better world, drawing upon all of our resources.”

Not good! Yes, the struggle continues. But no, no, no – a thousand times no! Barack Obama was NOT elected “despite the power of money!” (Here we perhaps witness the well-known dumbing-down effect of an academic career: surely the pre-tenure Angela Davis of 1969 would never have uttered such a plainly false comment as that). He set new corporate fundraising records, receiving many millions of dollars from powerful Wall Street firms and other profit-based economic giants. He developed just as plutocratic (with the same disproportionate weighting toward large scale contributions) a campaign finance profile as George W. Bush’s in 2004. Here is an interesting and accurate reflection from an anonymous reader commenting on a recent ZNet essay of mine:

Follow the money. Don't know about this year, but look at presidential funding from 2000,2004, and 2008. In 2000 and 2004, we saw Bush and his Pioneers and their massive fundraising machine that raised about $370 million in each election. In 2008, we saw McCain take public financing because he couldn't raise a measly $80 million in the general election. Where did that money go?

“The Obama campaign was not a grassroots social movement created by ordinary people struggling for progressive change from the bottom up any more than a fish is a cat or than war is peace.”

Obama raised $750 million in 2008, nearly doubling the Bush record. OpenSecrets.org says that 1/3 was in small donation (less than $200). But that leaves $500 million in 'big' donations. More than the totals Bush raised in either 2000 or 2004.

We know Wall Street gave about $30 million for their 1)bailouts, 2) protection from prosecution, and 3) protection from real reform. We know that the big health care corps gave about the same $30 million to 1) keep single-payer off the table, 2) get their $500 billion in tax credits, and 3) their mandated customers. And those amounts are just to Obama alone, and don't include their buying of Senators and Reps

vulgar hobama drone moron/vdlr:

Thus when Keli Goff, a Huffington Post and theLoop21.com blogger, called the White House briefing “a good first date,” she was publicly signaling her willingness to be used any way, any time by the powerful. There's a word for people who play that role, and that word is not “journalist.”

In his long career, the great investigative reporter I.F. Stone broke scores of original stories about war, peace and corruption. He never asked for, and he never got the privileged and “off the record” access to the powerful, which Ta Nehisi Coates imagines black reporters should aspire to, the private interviews with mayors, admirals and presidents, who would have been much too afraid of his direct and probing questions anyway. Stone got his stories the old fashioned way, with diligent research.

Black Agenda Report was not invited to the White House briefing, and that's perfectly OK with us. We understand that reporters and bloggers too, who subsist on privileged access to the powerful in return for passing their anonymous tidbits to the public as news, that such people are being pimped. Which makes them.... well.... you know....

LICK THIS!!!:

Continuing the bailout of Wall Street that was begun under Bush, the Obama administration has carried the largest handout of public funds to the wealthy in American history. This was followed up by the enactment last summer of a financial system “reform” bill so toothless that it punishes no one for the greatest outbreak of swindling in history.



The White House assiduously protected oil giant BP from the repercussions of the greatest environmental disaster in US history and last week lifted its moratorium on deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.



As for leaving ordinary families “to fend for themselves,” the Obama administration has imposed the burden of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression on working class families, rejecting any serious action as mass unemployment, mass poverty and mass foreclosures have become permanent features of American life.



In the month leading up to the November 2 election, Obama has alternated speeches bashing the Republicans as tools of Wall Street with actions that demonstrate that the Democrats are no less committed to the defense of the financial aristocracy.



On the same day Obama boarded Air Force One to travel to the West Coast, the top administration official in the foreclosure crisis, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Shaun Donovan, held a White House briefing to declare that “we have not found any evidence at this point of systemic issues” in the manufacture of hundreds of thousands of false legal documents by mortgage bankers.



Donovan rejected any blanket moratorium on foreclosures, claiming, “We are focused on the process early, to keep people in their homes, rather than focusing late, when it is much less likely that people will be able to stay in their homes.” Translated into plain English, the administration policy is to pressure homeowners not to fall behind on their payments, rather than to rescue those who face eviction.

Re: Wacka flacka, I really can't help b/c I didn't understand what they were saying. And I have no clue what a drop squad is. But perpetuating negative stereotypes about "players" in the ghetto probably isn't something to be celebrated. I like the sardonic humor of Chris Rock or Dave Chappelle more than this type of stuff. I think both comedians make their points cogently.

Re: The angry Tea Party dude. The majority of the violence has come from the LEFT and the manufactured Axelturf, but don't let the facts get in the way.

I'm guessing that if you fled the communists in Nicaragua, you'd get a bit bent about communists too.

I dated a young man in college whose dad fled the communists in Hungary as a young man, lived with a solidarity organizer and defector from Poland in the early 80's, and most of my husband's extended family died at the hands of either the Nazis or post-WWII, Stalin.

So we tend to not be sympathetic to anything even remotely socialistic in this casa either.

But he could turn down the volume a bit. That would have been helpful.

You keep stating you're not going to get into flame wars, and every time I come back for a visit, there you are ... in a flame war.

You have so many good points to make, besides "Hombama is a Nazi" and getting sucked in as troll bait.

I am far more interested in your perspective working with inner city youth about how to turn around the negative images that are perpetuated within some segments of the lower socioeconomic quarters -- black and white -- then I am in skipping over mountains of he said-she said, nana-nana boo-boo back and forth.

hey unlicked sow vdlr:

soooooooooooeeeeeeeeeeee this!

beneficiaries of President Obama's educational policies “will be the testing and charter school corporations.” The president's top executive for educational business affairs, Arne Duncan, is free to treat the nation's schools as his “portfolio.” Unfortunately, “children performing below grade level, or in need of special education are not welcome in corporate education land.”

Freedom Rider: Obama Plots Against Children
by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley
“The only beneficiaries of his educational policy will be the testing and charter school corporations.”
According to conservatives, Barack Obama is after the little kiddies. He hatched a nefarious plot to start an Obama Youth movement and propagandize tender young minds into mindlessly following his fascist, socialist, communist, atheist, not born in the USA political cult. In fact, he delivered a speech to kids ranging in age from elementary school through high school, in which he exhorted them to do their homework, stay in school, flee from drugs, realize their dreams, and well, you know the rest.
The idea of a presidential fireside chat for children is more ridiculous than anything else. It is akin to Bill Clinton’s school uniform policy, relatively harmless but cloaking more important and more dangerous policy decisions. All of the hot air from the right wing has obscured the truly offensive nature of the president’s goals in speaking to school children.

President Obama invited a drug dealer (Jay Z) to the White House. For that alone, Obama and his family should be thrown out of there.

Seeing as JFK's father was a drug dealer (booklegging was the crack dealing of the 20's), Clinton was accused of allowing coke smugglers fly through AR (the story is total BS, but nevermind), Pappy Bush created the crack industry via the CIA, Reagan was chummy with several convicted murderers and George the Lesser along with half of the music industry are either former or full blown addicts -- Obama inviting a successful musician who was a youthful offender is all that pearl-clutching shocking.

But then again, Anon, the Right Wing and 'Tea Party Left' clutch their pearls everytim Obama sneezes.

Karen,
Carrying signs is constitutional. Perhaps if you had lived in the Soviet Union you would be more aware and you would know first hand the difference between socialist views and totalitarian views.

I have also know people who have left the Soviet Union and Poland; what you say is not the definitive immigrant from those countries.

I know, its that damn liberal public school education in action. Damn commie pinko teachers teaching me to go to the damn library.

As for Wacka Flacka Flame, any Negro that gives himself such a ignorant stage name and is associate with with Guicci Mane is bound to be, well, stupid. Which is ironic because from all appearances, these guy grew fairly normal and middle class. I smell a CB4 type.

I can't view the YouTube video at work, but I know enough about the this guy's non-music to avoid for the sake of my heart pressure.

The Tea Party folks showed their true colors on that bit in Kentucky. A bunch of grown men attacking a woman is dirty, just as the SEIU attacking the black tea bagger was wrong (I know I say Black conservatives deserve an ass whooping, but I don't mean to literally assault these people.)

The issue is the fact that Rand Paul has stood by his campaign worker and not outright denounce this that should scare folks. For all those who think that the Pauls are friends to Black folks or progressives, bear witness -- Libertarians are just Right Wing Republicans with a good weed stash. And Rand Paul has proven to be further to the right on Social issues than his "all-too-friendly with Civil War Re-enactors" father. Now this could be Paul trying to to make waves with the lynch mob of Tea Party folks who got him nominated, but still scary.

LAC, "The Tea Party folks showed their true colors on that bit in Kentucky. A bunch of grown men attacking a woman is dirty, just as the SEIU attacking the black tea bagger was wrong (I know I say Black conservatives deserve an ass whooping, but I don't mean to literally assault these people.)"

First, your statement proves that you are a racist against Blacks. You are an uncle tom.

Secondly, Tea Partiers have a right to stand up for their rights and to protect themselves, which is what that nice follower of Rand Paul was doing. That woman had no business trying to harrass Rand Paul. He did nothing to that left wing nut. She's fortunate the guy was a nice guy otherwise her jaw might have been broken.

Let this be a warning to all you lefties that you will get your White AND Black butts kicked by conservatives who are simply trying to keep order. ("ORDER" is something foreign to left progressive liberal Dems)

SEIU did not do a beat down of the lying liar and the liar who hired him. Nor were the 'witnesses' without falsehood...seems they offered up unsworn testilying to the police.
As far as the bravefart brothers, those courageous souls...she is half their size. I don't see them as a threat to anyone who is within 40 pounds of their cracker a***s.

When you find some Lefty violence, let us know so we can condemn it...but I really can't wait that long. I live in rural Pennsyltucky along with the rest of the Old Ones.

I'm shocked by it but I don't know if I'm appalled. Something about it is funny. Interesting that there's a segment of the community that wants young black men to pull their pants up and act a certain way because of the gravity of BO's achievement but BO still hasn't done anything to acknowledge their reality. Furthermore if this is the first step to having kids in the hood relate to something as monumental as his presidency that's a good thing. And you must admit the dude sounds a little like BO.

the ONLY thing i admire about the illuminati peer of hobama and elitist talentless drone jay z is that he is a FORMER drug dealer...

but i define a "hobama pearl clutcher" as one like you... who would rather praise hobama's guest list than lament how all of hobama's policies will create BRAND NEW PERPETUAL drug dealers trying to eat and pay rent

the fact is you all need to unclutch hobama's pearls asap

JFK had no say in who his daddy was now did he? You just said that the Clinton story (which I never heard until now) is BS. There is no hard evidence to show that Pappy Bush did anything of the sort. Reagon chummy with convicted murderers? Did he pose for pictures with them? Bush the son's alleged drug use while young in hardly comparable to being an ADMITTED drug dealer.

Jay Z likes to boast about his drug DEALING days. He even talks about robbing people at gunpoint. As if doing these things makes him an authentic black man. You probably would not agree but using drugs and selling/dealing drugs are two different things.

Jay Z likes to talk about his criminal exploits as if it's something to be proud of. He can't put the past behind him. So neither will I.
