    I think you are having trouble understanding what is being said in the poem... Because you're only reading the part that supports your argument.

    This whole faux controversy ginned up by Fox and RW radio is all about feeding into racism and fear.

    Huh uh. And the NJ Police Officers are part of that Right Wing Fear Mongering too.
    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.

    Hey, the NJ police are entitled to their opinion. (no doubt given to them by conservative activists trying to stir up controversy) I'm mean how many of them sit around watching Def Poetry Jam, discussing, analyzing the subtext. Would the NJ police has even been aware of this poem or some of the lines if some reporter hadn't called them looking for a story.

    Note to budding reporters: You don't 'create' news, you 'report' it.

    But taking one poem (out of context) out of a total body of work, from an artist know for positive and conscious lyrics, is the epitome of race-baiting.

    Why don't you try reading the entire poem, and not just the lines taken out of context by your masters at Fox?

    a bumper sticker I saw seems appropriate to respond to your hysterical nonsense

    "I AM NOT A RACIST, I HATE HIS WHITE HALF MORE"

    If Obama was a pro gun pro taxpayer, pro military, pro limited government advocate It would be people like you who hated him or voted against him

    Now now TD, you know the narrative that the lefties are supposed to push is that anyone that dislikes Obama, or his friends is just a racist unable to admit to himself. It has NOTHING to do with Obama's actions, ideas, speeches, friends behavior or the like. Cause if it WERE based on that, then that might mean Obama's supporters have been in error, and we all know good progressives are never wrong. They tell us so everyday. So it OBVIOUSLY is all about skin color.

    If you're consciously trying to prove you're not a racist, chance are you probably are. I bet that guy has another bumper sticker saying "I'M NOT RACIST! I'VE HAD 4 BLACK PEOPLE IN MY HOUSE THIS YEAR!"
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Still waiting for the right that has a problem with this to tell me how they felt about Ronald Reagan inviting rapper Eazy E to the White House. So far in other two threads only one person would even answer. I wonder why

    Palin needs to get her own trash house in order before speaking on decency and/or class

    It was Bush 41, not Reagan. It was a lunch benefitting GOP Senatorial candidates, from what I can glean from Googling. E was a party contributor apparently and was invited to the benefit by Bob Dole. I don't know if he spoke, or if his lyrics were praised as poetry.

    I also know nothing of his recordings. He apparently sang about killing cops?

    Yes. I'd say bad form. Maybe a nice thank you for your donation letter should have been the limit.

    EDIT: Re-reading the link, it was hoped that E would assist with fundraising after publicly praising Bush 41.

    Yawn!

    I'll be waiting for the next faux outrage... Hopefully it's as rediculous as this one is.
