Michelle Obama declared on numerous occasions the White House would be "the people's house" after her husband was elected. Whose people?
The First Lady invited the Chicago-born rapper "Common" (aka Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr.) to DC for a Wednesday evening poetry event. Common joins Mrs. Obama's ‘in your face' club which includes her "favorites" like singer Beyonce.
The 39-year old Grammy winning rapper/actor has been a member of the Obamas' Trinity United Church of Christ for most of his life. Pastor Wright's anti-white, anti-America sermons surely influenced the youngster's linguistic prowess. Michelle must feel right at home with the avowed Christian Mr. Common.
These lyrics to "Rich Man vs. Poor Man" could have been written after hearing a Sunday homily: (profanity alert)
But the white man didn't care, shit he didn't have to wear it (uh ha)
He scratched that pad he got from his parents, with his tight ass
He would of been poor white trash, but anyway
Everyday the blackman would ask for some spare change
But Adam, the white man would stare strange
So the black man got fed up
cause wasn't nobody feedin' him and feedin' him
And took red by his neck and started beatin' him and beatin' him
I'm a have ta wreck a Ho'shea
I heard a ho say you her favorite rapper
(So what) so I had to slap her, ugn
And violate you, a Muslim drinking brew
Your nigga ain't no Mack 10, he's a 22
I seen you, you ain't say s**t in ATL
A year ago, you wasn't talking shit about the West
Guess you knew you're s**t was done plus the one got you cable
Hoo Bangin, you ain't banging s**t but the table
in the Circle Mad, ain't got no choice but to fight
Ain't none of y'all muthafu***s got a chance on the mic
Pretty sick stuff, but that didn't stop Michelle O from enlisting his help in leading rap workshops with area schoolchildren before the evening performance. Why should we be surprised at any of the First Lady's antics? Her husband keeps Safe Schools Czar radical homosexual Kevin Jennings at the helm in the Department of Education.
Does Michelle really want school children and her own daughters Mahlia and Sasha to listen to rappers who abuse and denigrate women through their choice of language? What is she thinking? This is not child advocacy, this is child endangerment.
Sex and violence themes especially towards women permeate the rap genre culture. Nevertheless, Common is peddling his poetry at the White House and the "people's house" has become the "my people" hangout.
