AN EVENING OF POETRY AT THE WHITE HOUSE
TALENT SHOW AT THE WHITE HOUSE
“Them dick boys got a lock of cock in them,
My people on the block got a lot of [Tu]pac in them…
Burn a Bush cos’ for peace.”
ALLRIGHT! Way to go!
These carefully crafted words are from Common, a rapper that will attend a poetry reading at the White House this week with the first lady and Obama. This summarizes Common’s attitude toward President Bush, with these carefully selected words, “Burn a Bush.
But wait there is more. There are other deeply felt social issues that Common raps about like the following:
“I don’t know what it is / but white girls gettin’ ass
I know what it is / It’s cash.”
How better could you articulate your opposition to mixed couples than, “white girls getting’ ass?”
Common may have a lot more going for him other than beautifully crafted poetry, he is in very thick with Jeremiah Wright, you know the presidents pastor where the Obama’s attended church for twenty years, and where the little girls were baptized. Common performed at Wright’s 2008 New Year celebration and again he tackled weighty social issues as he called for the release from jail of cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, a Black Panther member.
AND, he waxed eloquent on his presidential choice when he sang,
. “I’m gonna let you know / No people want drama /
We gonna vote for my man / What’s his name? Obama
Revolution is here”
I just wondering, since he has called for the burning of President Bush, will the FBI pick him up in the middle of the poetry evening?
The cultural giants in Hollywood have recognized common’s great talent. He is due to appear in movies with Angelina Jolie, Morgan Freeman , Forest Whitaker and Keanu Reeves.
Common’s real name is Lonnie Rashid Lynn, born in Chicago, his talent has propelled him to great heights.
