    RNC chairman condemns controversial Obama song

    RNC chairman condemns controversial Obama song - CNN.com

    Cudos to the Rep. Chairman for condemning this. Incredible that saltsman actually thought it could help him. Almost as incredible as the fact that this song has been played on conservative talk shows for some time already.

    There are plenty of people that consider the Republican Party to be the place to be if you have racist tendencies. That's something the GOP needs to get away from, IMO. This doesn't help.

    I haven't heard the song, but I am just guessing that anything titled "Barack the Magic Negro" would likely be racist on some level. However, from the article, the song's defenders are saying that the song is about how Obama supposedly appeals to whites who wallow in racial guilt. If that's all the further the song goes, then I can't see racism. While I strenuously disagree, I don't see how it necessarily requires a person to be racist in order to think it.

    On the other hand, if the song claims that that is Obama's only, or even major, appeal, I would have to start wondering. I mean, if a person can't see Obama's intelligence and leadership level charisma even if you hate the fact that he has those things because you disagree with him, then that person is blinded by something.

    Gee....I wish they would quit playing this "racist" song on the radio.


    Santana:Black Magic Woman

    "Got a black magic woman
    Got a black magic woman.

    I got a black magic woman
    Got me so blind I can't see
    That she's a black magic woman
    She's tryin' to make a devil out of me.

    Don't turn your back on me baby
    Don't turn your back on me baby.

    Yes, don't turn your back on me baby
    Stop messin' 'round with your tricks
    Don't turn your back on me baby
    You just might pick up my magic sticks.

    Got your spell on me baby
    Got your spell on me baby.

    Yes you got your spell on me baby
    Turning my heart into stone
    I need you so bad - magic woman
    I can't leave you alone. "

    LOL, Comrade. The woman is NOT black (at least the song does not give any indication of race), but she does perform "black magic."

    Can't wait to get your interpretation of "Back in Black" and "Paint it Black."

    I'd be totally fine with this had the Democrats come up with "Dubya, the Dumbass Redneck," but alas, they didn't.

    Well, if that article is half true, I think both the song and the article point to something Rush Limbaugh doesn't expect: That the election of Obama doesn't really prove much.

    Here it is: I have seen many well meaning liberals and alot of responsibility avoiding conservatives touting the election of Obama as proof that America has put it's racist past behind us. In fact, if Obama appeals to anyone as a "Magic Negro" it is the conservatives who don't want to hear anymore about racism, and see Obama's election despite their objections as a way out of it.

    But, the fact remains that only a majority of Americans need to be non-racist in order to elect a black president, and they don't even need to be the Americans who hold the keys to personal advancement.

    RNC Chairman has no balls, it's a HILARIOUS song...

    This is why the GOP Brand is dying, it's run by goofs like this turd bucket.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I present the inverse: That someone who sees such things when examining such a non-entity is probably delusional at best.

    I am hardly blinded, I just look at what is really there, in this case very little.

    O.K. how about the stupidity of lefty`s interpretationg this song.



    Black Betty
    by
    Ram Jam
    Album: Ram Jam Released: 1977
    US Chart: 18 UK Chart: 7



    Songfacts: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

    This is a traditional song that Folk singer Leadbelly popularized before his death in 1949. He recorded a lot of songs that otherwise might have been lost, including "Goodnight Irene" and "Midnight Special." Leadbelly's version is a cappella and commonly sung by laborers to pass the time while working.

    Ram Jam were a short-lived band from New York City, and this was their only hit. While the lyrical content is pretty standard Folk/Blues material - about a black woman from Alabama who has a "wild" child, Ram Jam took some heat because some civil rights groups felt the lyrics were disrespectful to black women. While the lyrics can be deconstructed, Ram Jam's version is driven by the powerful beat and aggressive tempo, making it one of those songs that gets your heart beating faster. The song is commonly played at sporting events to pump up the crowd.


    This was produced by Jerry Kasenetz and Jeff Katz, who were architects of the Bubblegum Sound, producing groups like The Ohio Express and the 1910 Fruitgum Company.

    The Australian band Spiderbait recorded this in 2004. It was their first single to reach #1 on the Australian charts. (thanks, Lynne - Sydney, Australia)

    A remixed version of this song is used in the 2002 movie Kung Pow: Enter The Fist when the main character fights the villain. (thanks, Frankie - Sarch, IN)
