The invitation of rapper Common to the White House this week is drawing the ire of the union representing New Jersey state police.
While even casual hip-hop fans wouldn't characterize him as a controversial rapper, Common found himself under the microscope after First Lady Michelle Obama invited him to the White House for an arts event. In question: the lyrics to "A Song for Assata," about convicted cop-killer and former Black Panther Assata Shakur.
Rapper Common apparently considers cop-killer Assata Shakur one of his heroes.
This is not surprising. The present occupiers of the White House have no class, no sense of propriety, no clue as to how to present themselves publicly in a manner befitting the titles they misrepresent: The President and First Lady of the United States of America.
They have no qualms whatever about insulting and dissing any segment of America that does not dance to their music.
Considering the long line of street rabble these two clowns have invited into the White House, it's going to take a real fumigating of the place to clean it up after we boot these two out.
