The Brothers are Getting Unhappy with Obama

UPDATE: A friend who knows about these things and was the person behind this post writes:
I was about to go out for a jog - when I saw this video on your site.

I TOLD you any black person with half a brain is pissed with Obama.

These young black rappers have summed up what many blacks are saying.


  1. Yeah and what are they sayin?
    Ben Gleck is a racist because what? he supports the wars? That GW Obama in turn supports?
    So like wars are bad and Obama is bad and like we're p*ssed.

    OK, but where is all this pent up inarticulate rage gonna end up? In the street? At the polls? Further polarized against "white" people when the voters as competent as the programmers for the MSNBC debate bar graph put another Bush clone in office?

    Inquiring minds want to know and all that jazz.

  2. I watched the whole thing but maybe got half, can I please get the a subtitle version?? It is worth understanding.

  3. dead prez! god I love dead prez! saw them up close and personal in lansing. great show,
    they referred to obama as "they president" and everybody boo'd. shook M1's hand...
    buuuutt.... they are totally socialists...

  4. @BobS... That is a sample from a Lupe Fiasco song and it's how he supports the wars (and opposes immigration). He might not actually be racist but the brunt of his argument is.

    If you have followed artists like M1, Lupe Fiasco, Pharoahe Monch and Immortal Technique over the years, you know they're the good guys.

    And don't forget about Prodigy.

    Since M1 started this, he gets one more link. Here he is with the only english verse in Shadia Mansour's Al Kufiyyeh 3arabeyyeh.

    Peace out EPJ!

  5. "I believe there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing. I believe there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the system of exploitation. I believe there will be that kind of clash, but I don't think it will be based on the color of our skin." ~ Malcolm X

  6. It's not that i don't like it when Obama loses all the support he can.
    It's that even in this case the problem they seem to have with him is not that he simply sucks, or that his ideology is corrupt.
    It's just that they regard him as a "house n***er", in other words, that he "serves whitey".

    So the problem they have with him, is simply that he turned out not to be a servant to the black man the way they hoped. It seems to be just more crypto-racism from the left, rather than a rationally sound argument against Obama.
