This is interesting. I would have thought all rap personalities were behind someone who feels he represents them, and has worked in their communities for them, as opposed to just working there to be seen. I guess Timbaland's feeling like a black Republican from all that JT/ Nelly Furtado cream.
Speaking of 'Baracka' (, thanks Juelz), I never really thought this would be that big an issue. How are two of them going to Selma, and one's giving a talk about the damn place? What about my damn health care/ stem cell research/ social security? Hillary Clinton is also an incredibly grimy person, on a side note. This is a particularly clever remark from an aide:
It’s probably a proud moment for us all. But there’s so much history to be made this time around — having the first woman president, having the first African-American nominee, having the first Latino nominee.No knows who Bill Richardson, the candidate of Mexican descent, is, regardless of his experience or apparent dedication to foreign issues. Though he's the governor of New Mexico, he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize four times. Nice. His entrance does make for an interesting race, in some way. I hope he gets on his game. If I know anyone who votes for CLinton, I will be extremely disappointed, as she is being supported by the founder of Base, Embarassing Television. Someone needs to explain to me why Robert Johnson's doing that, normally he'd support anything/ anyone "black," and I have a feeling it has nothing to do with Obama's experience. He sucks.
What's with the NYT trying to analyze race all the time? I feel like a "phenomenon" like this has been around for a little while, at least.
And allow me to leave you with this parting shot:
