COME ON JEEZY



I was just watching Jeezy and Nas' video for "My President is Black". I've heard the song before and I wish that they had made the song a little more intelligent. This is the hook:

My president is black, my Lambo's blue
And I'll be goddamned if my rims ain't too
My momma ain't at home, and daddy's still in jail
Tryna make a plate, anybody seen the scale?
My president is black, my Lambo's blue
And I'll be goddamned if my rims ain't too
My money's light green and my Jordans light grey
And they love to see white, now how much you tryna pay?
Let's go!

I'm glad that he knows his colors, but I really think he could've said something more important and relevant to what's going on. Also Barack is bi-racial, not saying that he's not black but, embrace him for every little bit of him!

That's exactly what I said...
I'm not trying to take away from his background but people need to recognize that he's black AND white.

I wanted to go to the inauguration speech 'cos my school is taking a "field trip" over there BUT it was expensive :/ I'll def. be watching that on the TV though!

OMH I thought I was the only one who thought the song had nothing to do with President Obama, the song is so materialistic it's sad, can we overcome the ignorance gosh.
