Obama & Luda

Make a educated decision on this one, don't go off the media and brainwashed opinions. Hearing about this on the news, I laughed, knowing that the overused freedom of speech defense wasn't going to apply, since it was a minority and a rapper. Did people have a complaint when Bush sent the troops overseas to get massacred on a daily basis? HELL NO. Did people have a complaint when the government assisted in the drug trade by allowing drugs into minority areas? HELL NO. Interesting enough, the same people who take the TEL-LIE-VISION for religious scripture are blogging their hearts out, upset at Luda for relaying his thoughts in a verse over a damn good beat... I see what he was trying to do and I think Obama is bumping that in his iPod on the low....LOL.

Read the official statement distancing Obama from Luda.

As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism, and degrading images that he doesn’t want his daughters or any children exposed to,” said spokesman Bill Burton. “This song is not only outrageously offensive to Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator McCain, and President Bush, it is offensive to all of us who are trying to raise our children with the values we hold dear. While Ludacris is a talented individual he should be ashamed of these lyrics."
