are mad at the rapper, Lupe Fiasco for his anti Obama rant at a pre-inauguration party, recently. Dude, like others in the black community, has some issues with his Oness. I am not mad at him. I like it when artists (and bloggers) are outspoken and speak out about what they believe in.
Besides, although I have some issues with Lupe Fiasco (dude said he doesn't vote), I actually agree with some of the lyrics in the song that he is catching heat for.
"He performed his hit “Words I Never Said.” The song, with its heavy political messaging, turned into a half-hour onstage stay that culminated in the rapper being escorted offstage.
In the song Lupe spits, “Limbaugh is a racist/ Glenn Beck is a racist/Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say sh*t.”
He continues. “That’s why I ain’t vote for him/ next one either/I’m a part of the problem/ my problem is I’m peaceful/And I believe in the people.” In the song he also digs at pharmaceutical companies, the media and sub par school systems."
Folks are saying that there is a time and place for everything, and that the rapper was out of line when he chose to speak out at a time when the president was getting his shine on. I happen to disagree. It's always a good time to speak your mind.
Finally, we had a gun show here in Philly this weekend and it was packed. Assault rifles were flying off the shelves, and there were long lines to make a purchase and take home the perfect tool for killing. What gun control? I hope that Obama and Uncle Joe realize that they have their work cut out for them.
One gun lover in Minnesota pulled his gun on his daughter and threatened to shoot her because her grades were too low. Hmm, let's see now; a bullet from an AK-47 or A's in school? "I think I am going to try really hard now dad".
"A St. Paul man has been charged with terroristic threats for pointing an AK-47 rifle at his daughter during an argument over the fact that she got two B's instead of straight A's in school.
According to the charges, 52-year-old Kirill Bartashevitch recently purchased the AK-47 due to fears that such weapons would be banned under President Obama's push for gun control legislation.
St. Paul police learned of the Jan. 13 incident after Bartashevitch's daughter sent a text message to a Central High School classmate, saying her father pointed an AK-47 at her. The message was seen by the classmate's mother, who reported it to a school worker.[Source]
