Should we paint the White House another color?

Ok -ok, title was for attention. No, I don’t think we should paint the white house another color. Might look good green though.

Alright folks, you heard about it all over the media this week. Let’s discuss… “Obama is Here” the new leak from the Ludacris mixtape. The Obama camp hates it. Lots of people hate it.

The question is, do you think its offensive? Or free speech?

For those of you who have been under a rock this week here is a recap of the debated offensive matieral:

-“Hillary hated on you, so that b^$&%* is irrelevant”

-“McCain don’t belong in ANY chair unless he’s paralyzed”

-“Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped”

Personally- I believe in free speech. Its campaign season – these type of antics are bound to occur especially with such a racially charged election. I am suprised that there hasn’t been more said. The rule your mother taught you of, ‘if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all’, doesn’t really apply…

 I do enjoy the lines, ” you can’t stop what’s bout to happen, we bout to make history, the first black president is destined and it’s meant to be, the threats ain’t fazing us, the nooses or the jokes so get off your ass, black people, it’s time to get out and vote!” Its an amazing thing that could happen, something I never thought I would see in my lifetime. That said, we should not vote on race- we should vote for the better candiate. For me, that is Obama. We do need change, as cliche as it sounds- something has to give.

I was listening to Toucher and Rich on Thursday and they did bring up a good point, if Obama is elected everyone is going to petrified of making fun of the president for fear of being called a racist. It will be interesting to see. What will SNL and Mad TV do ?

    I think that a similar fear underlines most critiques at this stage. For example, why have we steared from widely criticizing the self-proclaimed “family man” from what he did after being a PoW? I think it is because if we do then we’d come across as not supporting the troops…
