The Invitation: Ignorance Is Bliss


I was gonna go in on Fox News for trying to paint Common as a goon, when the President that he was going to “burn” was 2X the degenerate as a youth, but then I saw the big picture: feathers were ruffled. When fear and ignorance meet, you get to see how stupid some people really are. Fox News is notorious for pulling shit like this to manipulate their viewers. You’d be amazed how much people will believe, especially if it comes from someone sitting behind a desk. Fear has been use to maintain order since…well, always. I mean shit, from the way these clowns talk,you’d think they had Wacka up in the White House-which is some shit I actually want to see. But this is Common. Common.

I love how they comb through lyrics and find some shit that they can spin, or act as if they don’t understand how the english language can be used for anythingmore than spewing rhetoric. It’s a classic case of playing dumb in order to ridicule something, but coming off as (stupid) x (stupid) in the end. In the grand scheme of things, if people look at Common as a thug or a potential threat, then what the fuck do they think of me? Even in 2011, you can’t be a black man who’s about something without somebody trying to force cement sneakers upon you. With that being said, let us not forget that this all comes a week after Obama ended Bin Laden’s 10 year reign as Hide & Seek Champ. They can’t just openly shit on Obama, so they try to shift the hate to another light-skinned dude from Chicago. I suppose it’s much easier when one’s an entertainer as opposed to the President. Shit, I couldn’t even make it through the Sean Hannity fuckery without laughing.

Common took to Facebook today to address “The Invitation”, pretty much brushing the situation off. Aside from laughing, what else can you do?

Politics is politics and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I respect that. The one thing that shouldn’t be questioned is my support for the police officers and troops that protect us every day. Peace yall!

In a statement from White House spokesman Jay Carney, the White House defended “The Invitation”. Michelle rocks out to Mecca And The Soul Brother, let her have what the fuck she wants.

“While the president doesn’t support the kind of lyrics raised here, we do think some of the reports distort what Mr. Lynn stands for more broadly in order to stoke controversy,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday.

“He is within the genre of hip hop and rap in what’s known as a conscious rapper,” he said, adding that President Obama appreciates the way Common tries to get children to focus on poetry, “as opposed to some of the negative influences of life on the street.”

Translation: Fuck y’all.


LOL. I love watching women have passive-aggressive jawn fights, and it’s even better when it’s on camera. What’s hilarious is that Martha refutes every perfectly logical statement that Kelly Goff makes, just because. What’s even more hilarious is that Martha wants to fuck Common too. In the post-Obama world, where race is as sensitive of a subject as it ever was, everybody wants to fuck a black dude.

UPDATE: Below is the poem Common performed at the White House. Middle Finger U, Fox News



Just because….
