    You're smarter than that.
    Redress wasn't denying the he was referring to president Bush, as you seem to believe. Redress was referring to the fact the common is not literally calling on people to burn president Bush.

    You're smarter than that.

    No......

    Really?

    I know this is hard to believe, but I was pointing out that he was not calling for people to burn, or otherwise kill Bush.

    I find it hilarious the amount of manufactured controversy Obama is having to deal with.

    Honestly "I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die" is just as offensive as any of Common's lyrics, yet Cash gets a free pass while Common is apparently a cop killer...

    Come on guys. You can find something less blatantly trivial and foolish to bash Obama on.

    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.
    Sorry for spreading missinformation

    My point still stands though: does the right have a problem with Easy E being invited? Guess it is ok if it is under a right watch

    Again sorry for giving false info. I really thought that was true and RR had invited him. lol.

    Obama has always hung around with that kind of people ie: Jones, Rev, Wright, Ayers (to name a few) and it just so happens that Common is Rev. Wright's closest friend. What a coincidence.
    Show me who your friends are and I'll show you who you are.
    I hope that now you know the difference.
    So who gets to call dibbs on what is or is not offensive and trashy?

    Hey Vic

    Have you listened to "A Song For Assata"?

    just google it and read the lyrics, it brought tears to my eyes imagining the things that woman has been through.
    I don't know if she pulled the trigger which killed that trooper but, the case isn't Black and White... (or is it....kkk and rappers mentioned in the thread)

    The N.J State Police call her a cop killer, but why did that shoot-out even occur? And why did they have to use such enhanced interrogation techniques to evoke that confession>?

    And in "A Letter to the Law" Common is clearly using the gun as a metaphor for his passion, his anger. Actually, in the song he says the power of mind and community is bigger than boys popping guns. His uzi weighs a ton, he's got the black strap ---- the conscious, unified citizenry is more powerful than guns, AND HE IS ANGRY. This is the point of the song as I interpret it?

    Now, how about the real issues, like why he was so angry to make such strong metaphors?

    No worries, Kali. It's just DP. Who's reading this bilge but us?

    All I can say is Dole and Gramm had nothing to say when asked why E was invited. And in fairness, E was not invited because of his "poetry" as Common was, and to my knowledge, E wrote no "poems" praising convicted cop killers.
