Rapper Lupe Fiasco Says President Obama is a Terrorist

Your Black World reports.

The Chicago-based rapper Lupe Fiasco is in hot water after saying that President Barack Obama is a terrorist and that U.S. government policies are responsible for the terrorism that occurs around the world.  During an interview on CBS News, the rapper said the following:

“My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”

Fiasco also said that he doesn’t vote because the current political system doesn’t work.  He argues that the United States government allows the Israelis to engage in unspeakable abuses against the Palestinians, and he also criticizes the White House’s silence on this and other forms of oppression that occur both at home and abroad.

      Oh boy, hero worship is the scariest there is. He is NOT the greatest leader of the world.  Hell, he won’t even dialogue with black leaders about what to do about unemployment, violence being committed against us at the hands of the police, etc.  Hero worship is not healthy, OK?   What has Obama done to deserve this type of adoration from you?

  • Markgunnmedia

    If Obama is a terrorist, then you’d have to label every president that came before him. My point of contention with Mr. Fiasco (perfect description for his argument) is that he assumes that Mr. Obama was the architect of US foreign policy. This stance isn’t a good way to endear yourself with the music downloading public, especially when your label is actually TRYING to work your latest project on multiple formats.

      “If Obama is a terrorist, then you’d have to label every president that came before him.”

      Dude, that’s pretty much what he’s saying when he says, “the biggest terrorist is…the united states government.” He’s saying the U.S. president (regardless of whether it’s Obama or Clinton or Bush) is a terrorist. All he’s saying is that when we vote (you’d have to check out the rest of the interview not included in the article to hear the part where he talks more about why he doesn’t vote), we simply vote in another terrorist, somebody who will be co-signing and causing bloodshed to some degree and severity in this world. That’s all he said.

  • Northwestdream

    I do agree that the US government is responsible for some of the most heinous crimes against humanity and they are INDEED extreme when implementing their brand of foreign policy.  However, Obama is not the ONLY president who has allowed this type of horror to continue, nor will he be the last.

    I agree 100%, that this President, the blackface mascot name Obama, is the head of one of the worst terrorist organization in the world, United Snakes of Amerikkka…This country got it’s rotten start as a penal colony with a bunch of people sent away from Europe (U rope how fitting since this is what they used on many people of color to elliminate us) because they were criminals, such as prostitutes, debtors, murderers and the list goes on…These people came to this country, found people living on land they want for free, so they resort to what they knew best, killing, and taking what they want for free…They next went to the African continent, raped, pillaged, and brought over people as labor to work for free, we helped to improve the western way of living by being used as commodities and also by producing the commodities, cotton, tobacco, teas, etc sold on the free market to make this country and the western world wealthy…Back to the present time, this mascot name Obama father is from Kenya, East Africa making Obama a real afrikan amerikan, more so than most black folks who call themselves african, since this man know his father’s people and tribe and where in afrika he’s from…

    This clown name Obama has allowed himself to be used to help with the re-raping of the continent, he moved AFRICOM from Weisbaden, Germany and set it up in the horn of Afrika in a country called, Djibotie…This organization is being used as a mini NATO, ran by a group of thugs who will bomb you (Libya, Syria, Algeria, Sudan, Yemen, etc) into submission all under the disguise of humanitarian aide to help women and children, you’re indiscriminately killing everbody, while trying to help everybody… Black people are so in love with having someone black being their dictator, they are giving him a pass to do what the hell he wants and keeps making excuses for him and his bad behavior…We will find ourselves re-colonized and in a worst shape financially, mentally, and spiritually because black folks are so glad to have the first black man as their dictator in chief…Let’s not forget he has no problem in telling men of color (Rev Wright, Black fathers, Gadaffi, Farrakhan, etc) what they need to do to themselves, but has a problem telling white men (Wall Street fat cats who wrecked this country’s economy, Auto Industry bailouts, Bank bailouts, Corps and their off shore moves and tax breaks), Israel and her apartheid racist ways, are not told they need to staighten the f**k up…This is what i’ll call an europeanized negro…The only difference in him and all the others out here like him, he married a black woman instead of the usual trophy white woman…I guess he knew he would not be able to rise in amerikkkan politics as a black man with a white woman…

        I try to educate ignorant azz people like you about this republic we’re living in that is being sold to the amerikkkan public as a democracy…Since Civics 101 has been removed from the amerikkkan public school systems, we have had the dumbing down of the public into more nothingness, then we have corporate sponsored media selling tabloid, supermarket checkout journalism that people like you swallow hook line and sinker…This amerikkkan political system and the current black CEO in charge of it, was selected and put in place to have the sleeping pill effect that he has put not only on this country’s blacks and other non-whites, but the rest of the world non-whites have been placed under the same sleeping spell..There is a big difference between public policy and public personality…Ignorant people like you are wrapped up in the public personality and cant see beyond it to your own detriment…Remember the fairy tale of the pied piper? You and all these fawning blacks will find your azzes marched into the seas and drown because you love this man more than your damn selves…This is the same mentality that you’ll have about your pimp daddies, I mean pastors who have screwed blacks folks without using a condom or K-Y Jelly…You’ll will drop your rent and light bill money into the collection plates, get thrown out your houses and will sit on the sides of the road with all your possession, while pimp daddy preacher will drive by in his Rolls Royce and will not look over and see you…Grow the hell up and stop being a damn fool…

FACT: 57 So-Called american corporations were fined by the Treasury Dept for Trading/Doing business with TERRORISTS and OFFICIAL ENEMIES of the US. IN ONE WEEK!!!!  FINED?!?! That sounds like TREASON to me,  and the Penalty for treason is what? DEATH. Look it up, don’t believe a word I, or anyone else says.

        Rita wake up and start to educate yourself by reading and not just believing what you hear on the nightly news.  This gov’t. which is President Obama are lying, thieves and murderers you must question everything they tell you and ask what’s their agenda.  I know it’s hard to hear the truth that Shaka speaks when your entire life you’ve been conditioned by a Eurocentric system.  It’s very similar to the enslaved African being told they were free to go and saying to their kidnappers, no I don’t wanna leave u master. 

        Amerikkka is the greatest terrorist in the world and their foreign policies are oppressive to other people of color which cause the worst conditions and therefore create freedom fighters.

      Hatred is a terrible thing, especially when all you do is sit on the sidelines.  I am no apologist for President Obama, but we’ll not do better than him as a leader for some time to come.  You have to play with the Big Boys to make change, and progress is slow.  You can spew your venom, but from what I can tell, you benefited from this country’s educational system, and are likely counting US dollars as your currency. Your rhetoric, like Fiasco’s is fiery and bombastic, but devoid of the realities.  Let’s flip the switch a little bit.  If you were from South Africa, for instance, where the majority is Black, how do you justify the pacifism? At least we here in the US know the numbers disparity and choose not to commit suicide.  But what about South Africa?  How could a people numbering in the millions let white people rule them, Mr. Zulu.  Go there, where you can effect change.  Or talk to the Latinos whose numbers could possibly overwhelm the majority.  Your Black “Amerikkan” revolution BS is called suicide, and guess what, we from the African diaspora survived the Middle Passage.  We’re not going to jump into the river because you, a pied piper, have a small flute to lead us into extinction.

      Shake that spear where it can make a difference, and get the hell back to Africa if you want to stir things up.

        I dont deal in hatred which is a wasted emotion except when you have to kill, I deal with facts..When you are ruled by fear, you will let your enemy win every time..We’re not getting off this planet alive, so if your dont want to stand for something, you’ll fall for everything…Some of our ancestors out numbered the slavers on the ships coming over here, they could have overtaken them and loose a few, but they let fear guide them into immobility…This is the edge whitey has always had over non-whites which is why they get you all involved in religion and fearing death, the devil, god, and tell you to wait on the lord to do all your fighting for you…When you have your enemy supporting institutions like NAACP, Urban League National Action Network, and all the other nationals, do you think they are going to fund your orgs to over throw their system of white domination? Whitey has black fools thinking all they have to do is marry white women, get educated in their elite schools, and you will be accepted by whitey, this is why we have all these brain dead negros sitting on their hands waiting for god and his angels to fall out the sky and do their battle…This is what religion has done for black people, make you loose your cognitive functions…My ancestors have been in the amerikas longer than yours have been here in the four hunderd years that you’re claiming for the slave holocaust, so if you want to be an ass and start talking about leaving, dont forget to pack your bags because this is not your damn country, take the europeans and all the other foreigners with you…If having a genocidal maniac in the form of a black man is “we cant do any better” them when he start colleting black people and putting them into secret prisons because we disagree with his policies, assissinate american citizens without judicial review, request bank activitiy and spending information from all your financial institutions without you having any notice, secretly surveille your email cellphone records with notifying you, these are all parts of the Patriot Act that this black man in the WH extended for another four years…I have no illusion about amerikkka and the people who are pushing her policies, apparently you are the only cyanide laced kool aid drinker…

        • Jacque

          I like your history lessons.  Hell, I love them.  Again, I don’t agree with quite a few, but keep educating. You’re very pessimistic. I’ll keep President Obama.  There is NO One better.  For now….

        • http://twitter.com/2ysur2ysub Gin

          You choose to use the moniker Shakka Zulu, which I don’t believe is a Native American name, so your claims to 4 centuries here suggest that you are either a Native American or descended from freemen from Africa before the onslaught of slavery.  I cannot know what you cannot tell me so I’ll tell you a bit about mine.  I have verifiable proof that my beginnings here were in the mid-1700s, from an African woman who came here, but it doesn’t matter.  I don’t think you lay claim to any more being an American than anyone else, unless you’re a Native American.  And if you are a Native American, then you need to tell your brethren to quit discriminating against Black Americans of Indian descent, expelling them from their ranks so they can keep all the casino money for themselves.  So you’re not pure either.  And if you’re a white man, then… whatever.

          Yours is no history lesson. It is a lesson in futility.  Sitting on the sidelines bemoaning the fate of OUR nation is folly if you’re not even speaking in a language one can understand.  Honestly, for all I know you’re a government agent, hired to ferret out the would-be terrorists among us.  Your lament sounds almost cartoon-ish and ill equipped to show that you can step in the place of those in power.

          I agree with you about religion and its control over my race, but I’d say it controls the world, except in Asia (which is why they really own the world).  But unless you plan a massacre of everyone who believes in Christianity, guess what? You might as well start your own virtual planet.

          As I said earlier, I am no apologist for BHO, as I, too am upset about his continued Bush practices. I don’t like the Patriot Act, nor do I like the intrusions into our private lives.  But, get real, we are a country of $313,000 — there aren’t enough people hired by government to listen in on any conversation, so ultimately, this doesn’t have an effect on most of us.  I am concerned about how the government is treating American Muslims, however, but, again, I don’t think its organized enough to be able to ferret out everyone.. usually something more blatant will draw attention to oneself. 

          This is the deal.  Most of us will be dead in 100 years.  And age creeps up very fast.  So, amidst making a living to sustain oneself, what does one do? A John Brown raid? Or do you let people who have a say in how the government runs know what you think.

          You seem like you are powerless.  I don’t feel powerless.  I let them know what I believe, even if it’s a tweet.  I also challenge white people’s beliefs, too, at least letting them know that they are not off the hook for some of their views.  I hope you are doing more than sitting in the kitchen, here, talking to
          your black brethren and letting people in power know what you think. 

          I was against going into Iraq.  I did not want bin Laden killed (I’m also against the death penalty).  But until courageous people like the lone Congresswoman who voted against the Iraq War (Barbara Lee) take a stand, and speak truth to power, we will forever argue with our powerless people who are merely trying to survive.

          I have different anger than you, but I have it just the same.  But honestly, I think it is YOU who speaks for the government, because your posts are almost juvenile in their effect.

          • Amanishakhete

            Gin, about 15 years ago, Frank Joseph, Editor of Ancient America magazine gave a lecture on our ancestors here in Amerikkika. 

            In a cave in Illinois which is now owned by a white man, there are African mummies from 2500+ years ago.  So Blacks are the first and ultimate Native American.

          • http://twitter.com/2ysur2ysub Gin

            I’m aware of that, Amanishakhete, but he spoke cryptically, so I could only go by his words.  I’m aware that Africans were the first sea-faring people and that they had traveled to China and traded with them…. and the US.

            But what good does it do to say that we were first, when we now live last? I used to be thin.  Not now.  So, big deal.  We can lay claim to the world, actually, as it all started with Africa and there is not a man or woman alive that doesn’t have some kind of African link to Lucy (although she is no longer credited with being the first–they found caves in Europe, apparently, within the last year).

            My point is that Mr. Zulu is angry that Black Americans are not more like Africans.  It’s a different Continent and a different culture.  Mr. Zulu can chastise AmeriKKKans, but what has he to say to his First Ever Alive who sold us into slavery?  What does he say for the corruption in most of Africa?  What pinnacle of government does he respect on this planet that serves as a symbol that we can emulate?

            He offers nothing.  Venezuela? Zimbabwe? Cuba? 

            He just wants to hate.  I understand his frustration, and sometimes have to shake my head and say, “you Black people,” as if I am not one.  I am.  But we are still enslaved, and like a slave of hatred, who is imprisoned this time, by his invisible shackles, Mr. Zulu prefers to grumble in the background.  You can write history, or live it.  I think he just writes it.

            I actually may decide to live elsewhere if a Republican the likes of Palin or Bachmann wins the Presidency.  Sadly, I have no ancestral home that I know of to call home.  I have traveled to Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and a bit of Europe… so I have a worldly perspective.  As he is content to write KKK everywhere, let him.  I still think he’s fictional and is here to rabble-rouse to get more Blacks in trouble as anti-government heretics.  I don’t put it past certain types in the government to try to make their cases this way.
            If Zulu disappears, I’m right.  If he appears, I may still be right.  He’s trying to start something…. don’t be foolish, by brothers and sisters… some will lead us to our own destruction, deluding you into thinking that he is who he says he is….. I wasn’t born yesterday.

            Shaka Zulu was an African warrior.  But you knew that right?  He was a leader of the Zulu kingdom during the early part of the 19th century.

            Look him up.

            By the way, I agree that the gentleman who uses the moniker of Shaka Zulu may be a little hard at times, but doesn’t he have the right to be?

        What we’re getting with Obama is worst that what we had under Bush and all the other white men in power…I have never liked being ruled by the first black anything, because they are usually more vicious in dealing with their own kind, to show whitey they are not the token negro..We only have to see our treatments in traffic stops, if there are two cops in that stop, one  black one white, the black guy will show his azz out to whitey and you will be given the worst treatment possible than if you would have been stopped by two white cops..The same thing on a job with a black supervisor, they will pick you out for the worst treatment so whitey will not say they’re giving us the hookup, so no i’m not impressed with Obama..I see all of the Bush policies being pushed, all Bush holdovers still in place, all the jews and whites that he has surrounded himself with and act as if they are not intelligent blacks who can do the same jobs…What I see is a black man raised by white people who dont know how to relate to anything black except his children and wife and soneone to play a quick pickup game of basketball…I pray for the survival of all black people where ever we might be, and not for this damn country…We keep telling ourselves about who will lead us, and comparing the better of two evils, you’re still getting evil…Perhaps if we would have allowed other options like Cynthia McKinney, Dennis Kushinich and all the other candidates who were not the prettty, flamboyant, slick tongue, promise you the moon, could rhymne better than Jesse Jackson, we would have had a change to get a better choice in candidate..We always pick the ones in the front of the pack as being the most qualified, when they are not, they just have the most money and backers…

    • Rfhunlimit

      My Brother
      Are you hearing yourself ? The president had an extremely difficult time denouncing Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Which I personally think that is why Rev Wright made the task easier by getting increasingly ridiculous and outlandish in his talk.
      Now before you chalk me up to the uncle tom, Uncle Sam  loving house Negro let me inform you I’ve been in this Black Nationalist fight for over thirty years.. I listen to “Democracy Now” , the “BBC” and “NPR” everyday I have been and am still on first name basis with many of the great Black thinkers of our time and have been in proximity of many more. i.e. Dr. Ben, Dr. John Henry Clark, Dr Smalls, Gill Nobel, Dr Jeffries, Dr kalid Muhammad, Cornell West… and the list goes on… I’ve traveled abroad and have some knowledge of the world systems. So I don’t speak from a position of total ignorance although I will acknowledge I have much more to learn… that said, I agree as many on this board, that our country is an imperfect one and riddled with imperfect leaders, However even cursory a look at many of the regimes we revolutionaries are sympathetic to display deplorable human rights violations that are many times far worst to their own people than we have ever been.
      You mention  the invasion of the U.S. by the “U Rope”peans and the slave trade however many of the ottrosities committed by the early settlers were endorsed by our own people who also profited from the slave trade… greed is the universal culprit and it comes in all colors and nationalities… You say you don’t waste you energy on hate which is an excellent way to live however I would like to suggest that you try to see the glass half full and carefully guard your language in order to help foster the change you would like to see happen.. you catch more bees with honey than vinegar

        No, the hell it’s not. He’s not doing a damn thing but flapping his gums. He’s just further hurting the cause. Our cause. The Cause of Blacks People. He needs to get his silly ass out there and vote.  He needs to be encouraging other young people to vote.  He needs to be encouraging other young people to get an education and help change themselves, their neighborhoods and their world.  He needs to quit complaining about those that are fighting, get off his soap box and do something for those he has all that sympathy towards.  And, further, how about a little compassion for President Obama.  Sell out! Both of you are sell outs.  I’m sick to death of your kind and Lupe’s kind.  You both embarrass yourselves.

            Yes, indeed. Only a fool believes the vote is the answer. That is exactly Lupe’s point. That’s exactly the point MLK made in Where are We Now, his last book. The same point is laced throughout Malcolm X’s rhetoric. Some of our greatest leaders have expressed views similar if not the same as what Lupe has stated here (calling Obama a terrorist notwithstanding – get past that, Jacque and others, and listen to what the boy really said).

    Obama was not President when the two towers were hit by those morons in the planes.  Tanzania and Kenya had nothing to do with Arabs when those morons hit those countries killing hundreds of Black people there. United States did not provoke any of those morons or Bin Ladin. It’s irreponsible and ignorancy Rapper Lupe saying Obama is terrorist because he did not start those wars. It is the radicalized Arabs that started the wars. President Obama is responsibe to ensure we are safe here and around the world.

      Obama was not president during 9/11, but when he ran to be the CEO for the corporation knows as Amerikkka, he took over all responsibilities of her debts, double crosssing and two timing ways..This country was started bad, and will
      end in a bad way…I see no need to shuffle the deck chains on the Titanic, this ship is still going down and will sink…The bad policies of this country towards other nations the deemed inferior, is responsible for the hatred around the world directed to anything with USA on it, from the soldiers to any building with the amerikan name or flag flying on it…Those acts of violence in Tanzania and Kenya were directed at things with USA on it, the Afrikans working for amerika were part of the collateral damage, the same collateral damage the US and her coalition forces are exhuding in Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, and Afghanistan and all the other countless countries they have picked on to steal their resources and call it humanitarian aide to women and children…When you double cross people (Bin Laden), you will create enemies who will take you out the same way you want then taken out…It’s ignorance and irresponsibilty on your part to post on a blog site without researching to get factual information about this bitch called amerikkka and those in charge of running her…When you travel outside of your smalltowns and see the rest of the world, you will get a global perspective as to what is driving the hatred, and not what is fed via propaganda media owned by GE who makes more than light bulbs and refrigerators…GE make tanks, cluster bombs, and aircrafts used to keep the killings in continious motion, and to keep themselves in business…GE also owns news paper, MSNBC and several news outlet that you think are reputable…Washington Post also owns Kaplan learning centers and universities making over 60% of their income from these institutions…Do you think they will advertise something that reflect negatively against their bottom line?

        True, true, true, true …… and yet, I will maintain hope in America.  I will not turn against America.  I believe she is just as much ours as she is theirs.  Instead of tearing down a man that is trying to do as much Right as any President since Pres. Kennedy let’s pray Psalm 64 for him.

        Did you know that the Tea Party members have shirts and bumper stickers asking their people to pray Psalm 109 against him. That Psalm states “May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership. May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. May his children be wandering beggars;  

        Have you ever heard of such evilness?  Please keep an open heart and mind brother.  And, may God bless and keep you.

    Obama was not President when the two towers were hit by those morons in the planes.  Tanzania and Kenya had nothing to do with Arabs when those morons hit those countries killing hundreds of Black people there.

    How is he correct?  President Obama did not put us in these wars.  We were in it when he was elected.  Blame the other presidents that got us into this.  To me this your ploy of gaining some notoriety to make your name.  Where were you when Bush was in the White House?  Not voting, then you are perpetuating the cycle of “my vote doesn’t count”  bullshit.  Won’t be supporting you or your music.

      But! Obama did make a campaign promise to get us out of them, remember?  He no longer gets a free ride.  He promised to control the Patriot Act, it’s actually gotten worse under his presidency.  Granted, he is being controlled by the big boys to a certain extent, but some of things he can do, he refuses to.  Why is that?

    • CW

       By the way, I did vote and campaigned for Obama.  Made calls and contributed to his run for president.  I have every right to be disappointed.  I earned that right. It’s hard to convince young men like Lupe Fiasco that their vote really does count.  Remember during Bush’s 2nd run for president, black folks in Florida and elsewhere showed up in record numbers, but the votes weren’t even counted and in some cases not even picked up.  Instead of putting this young man down, try to convince him WHY he should vote; especially in the face of ALL that corruption.

    Babble babble babble… I often wonder why people who hate this country so much don’t leave… They reap ALL the benefits of low prices at Wal-mart Comparatively cheap gasoline (to the rest of the world) relatively safe streets and a far higher standard of living than 90% of the world… If you feel that strongly about this country then leave and join the political system in Africa or wherever you think is better and be happy… I doubt If ANY of you complainers will go… ranting foolishly and criticizing thoughtlessly never helps the problem… At least our president is doing something other than running his mouth… what will you do… step up or shut up.

      Hey dude,
      What you mean?

Our only consolation is seeing our black brothers enjoy the value of our blood.So let them enjoy it over there ,we not vexing for no one,we just hate all ignorant morons like you.

        I’m happy for you my brother… I have two questions for you. Did you move from the U.S. to Africa or are you native to Africa? If the former is true then congratulations because you are among the very few who have actually taken action over rhetorical gibberish, furthermore if the second is true then your not the person I was speaking to. In either case it is glaringly obvious base on your comment you are not the person I was targeting when I made this comment… Why this make me an ignorant moron I’ll never know but what will be will be… If you are ever in the U.S. we have some great anger management classes you may want to visit… Peace and blessing to you

    I am shocked that this little piece of wet crap thinks he is correct and falls in line with those citizens who live here illegally and want to take over our Country.  Why should America financially support other struggling countries when we have citizens who are in need of financial help?  If Lupe Fiasco is stupid enough to give his income from the sale of his rapper crap, then let him – he actually doesn’t have the brain to comprehend what he has said.  Understand?  No he doesn’t understand any of it.  He is a total disrespectful idiot.

    Okay so the US is not the pillar of morality…what else is new? Our President is not a terrorist and as others have stated, he did not create our foreign poilcy. To Lupe, I simply feel that if you do not vote then there is nothing for you to complain about and furthermore, if you are soooo dissapointed with the United States and hate it so, try your hand in one of the other countries that you are defending with all your might. Why stay here and reap the benefits of this rotten country?

    The United States needs to take a laissez faire approach to international affairs, not only do we need to curb our spending, but our approach on financing the affairs of other nations. We would not have to do this if our nation would do something about immigration and stop sweeping this issue under the rug. Whether your for it or against it, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I love my president, but I would love him more if he invest as much of his energy in our nation’s affairs, instead of other nation’s affairs. Oh, this is coming from a bleeding blue liberal in the, bluest of the blue New England states. You do not here about China and Russia having a bad economy. NO, soon this nation will not be the United Stated, but United China.

    Mr. Fiasco’s name is apropos as it is obvious that he is trying to mix things up.  His views are actually mainstream, although he wants to sound radical.  I doubt people think our President is a terrorist, but as a figurehead representing our country, Barack Hussein Obama is dipped in the same paint as all other United States Presidents who are blamed for the worlds’ ills.  I would say the US has aided and abetted the crises in the Middle East, but it is also likely to hasten democratization there, however protracted it may be.  The problems of he Middle East and Africa were British before they were American problems.  The US became involved as a superpower after WWII and its isolationism subsequent to that wartime period–definitely a thing of the past–as we grew into a military supra-superpower.

    Lupe Fiasco is young and naive if he thinks that writing poetry is the panacea to the world’s problems.  The world is more complicated than that.  Even if he could change the world with his music it takes working within those institutions, not berating them.  Look at what U2’s Bono is doing.  He’s showing what it takes to change the world.  Teaching the world to sing is a noble concept, but that doesn’t put food on the table.  Bono is putting officials’ feet to the fire, forcing them to change, by holding their hands throughout the process, not ostracizing them because they dare to try to be a part of the solution.

    I don’t like what is happening in Israel any more than he does, but I daresay this President, more than any other, is putting Netanyahu’s feet to the fire, risking losing his Presidency to the confused and quixotic forces that paradoxically echo Fiasco’s sentiments.  Just because one has a microphone doesn’t mean he/she is saying anything.  A couple of words of rhetoric does not make one a revolutionary.  Revolutionaries die horrific deaths (a la Bin Laden).  The real revolutionaries are the ones who know that the odds are not in their favor, but they’ll fight the good fight anyway.

    So, Mr. Fiasco, you can shake hands with the White Supremacists, the Right Wing Nut Jobs who believe that our President is the anti-Christ.  I wonder who is riding you around in your cars, making your appointments for you, divvying out the money, mixing your tapes, and telling you which song will be on iTunes.  What bank do you put your money in, who is making your clothes, your Nike kicks, your jewelry if you sport any.  

    And you have only a microphone.  

    Get with it brother, the revolution won’t be televised, and trust me, you won’t be on it anyway, as you’ll be too busy following some other white man’s orders, helping them terrorize the black community into thinking that the way forward is to rap our hearts out, become a DJ, a mixer, a Grand Master Flash or MC Hammer, or a 50cent.  Don’t get it twisted.  You are no revolutionary if you’re on MTV and David Letterman, and the like.  Get real.  In the meantime, let our terrorist President do his job.

      Since when do revolutionaries have to be equated with Osama Bin Laden?  Why not Malcolm X or Dr. King?  What about Ghandi?  Granted, I might not agree with everything Lupe Fiasco says, but at least he’s trying to give a much needed voice to those who are usually out of the loop or are afraid.  He’s refreshing to watch this rapper who isn’t talking about his bitches and hos and money and all of the other crap that spews out of most of these rappers mouths.

      My kudos to Mr. Fiasco who has the courage to speak up!

     Dixi chicks in 2003 “we don’t want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President (Bush Jr) of the United States  is from Texas.” They were chastised for their comment but they were right. The people commenting blacks should leave America are either rednecks or house niggers trying to assimilate into the American European culture. America doesn’t belong to anyone but the Native American’s and we have just as much rights to criticize these our leaders when their wrong.   

  • Meanchick

    I’m all for free speeech, but with that comes responsibility. LF has young fans who will blindly accept what he is saying and decide not to vote for those same reasons. We should be voting and encouraging young people to vote. Our ancestors fought and died to have the right to vote and it shouldn’t be thrown away simply because you don’t like what’s going on. That is a cop-out. I’d like to know what LF has done to help those he is sympathetic to? It’s one thing to run your mouth like water, it’s quite another to be proactive in healing the problem. If LF wants to speak out against leaders, then he should be leading by example and voting and getting young people involved in what is going on in the world. His little lesson was not quite right,  but I applaud him for using Google to find an excuse when he was blasted a while ago for saying he doesn’t vote. Your vote is your voice LF! If you don’t exercise your right, then you have no voice.

  • BETTYEBOOP023

    It makes me sick to log onto my computer and see all the garbage that is spewed out about people.  To see how we allow anyone to voice negative opinions about others based on uneducated feelings and the desire to have “fifteen minutes” of fame at anyone’s expense. President Obama is trying to clean up record-breaking deficits, the worse economy in history, trying to contend with saving this country from seen and unseen terroists and on the heel of this and more, must endure with garbage like “President Obama” is a terrorist, and we give creedence to it by putting it in print and allowing an avenue to present this garbage.  Really, what is this really saying about the “American People?”  Talk about laws, policies and procedures, there should be a LAW AGAINST THIS KIND OF TRASH.

    Oh boy. Lupe should be glad that he is in America, where he can express his opinions so freely. As for the president is a terrorist comment, that is an interesting comment. Is the president a terrorist because he is protecting us against our enemies? Nope. Is the president a terrorist because he is bombing afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, and other nations that want to harm us? Nope. So the president, now and in the future, are not terrorists. As with Israel. People have been saying that stuff for at least 40 years. Israel is going todo what Israel wants to do no matter who is in office. Lupe Fiasco. Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame because they are just about up.

  • Phinesse Demps

    Huge Lupe fan! I agree with the basis of his comments, maybe, how he said it, could have been better stated. What we ALL needed to do was read what he said NOT once, but a few times, before commenting. He is not in anyway shape or form saying President Obama is doing a bad job, he talking about a particular subject.Since President Obama sits in the seat, he is the one the comment is directed to. It is no different then people blaming the President for the unemployment and housing issue. These are inherited issues from a previous president.So who else is Lupe supposed to say the this to?Further, I applaud a Young Gifted Young Black Man, who is taking a stand on something political/social…. For the person who said that Lupe needs to do something for the people instead of running his month, then you do not know Lupe and you need to check his background to see what he is doing before making a comment,(Yep, you have freedom of speech, but it would be wise to use the time to look up information before making a remark)…… Of course, to the people who persist on painting BLACK MEN as drug selling, baby makers, and so forth. Check yourself because the last I checked, the social ills in the Black Community, were pushed on us by your type of people. Blacks have contributed greatly to this society and if you need some history lessons I would be glad to teach/educate you. Much Love!

    Why are we responding to someone who doesn’t vote anyway? If you don’t vote, you don’t have a right to say anything, especially something so stupid as to calling our President a terrorist! Are you serious? Or are you just trying to draw attention to yourself so that you can boost your record sales? Lupe Fiasco does not matter! He never did!

    • Anonymous

      “If you don’t vote, you don’t have a right to say anything.” Wrong answer. Actually we do since we all pay taxes. (And I’m assuming Mr. Fiasco pays taxes since he’s not in jail for tax evasion.) As my grandmother said, I pay taxes so I’ll say whatever the hell I please about the people to whom my tax dollars are going to support. So, do us all a favor, Andrea, and loose the catch phrases that people have been regurgitating for decades. They are played out, like a 8 track. Think beyond what the boy said, beyond the “Obama’s a terrorist” bit and consider that maybe his words aren’t actually that stupid.

      • Yepme2

        Thanks for enlightening Andrea, it is sad and typical of many who are brained washed in following BS and afraid to challenge any and all information.  Evidently, they do not realize BS is expressed only in the written and spoken word and they are not able to recognize BS as their mind absorbs and sustain the BS, which impairs their ability to discern the difference.
