“… The suspicion arises that someone in the United States especially created this conflict with the aim of making the situation more tense and creating a competitive advantage for one of the candidates fighting for the post of U.S. president.”
I’m watching BBC now and im wondering if they’re covering this at all in the US. I mean this is exactly what I thought would go on down the road, myself and warren had jokingly talked about starting a war then luring iran in so that McCain the proven war guru would be elected. But the fact that it is actually going on is crazy.
also i’m in Berlin – White Trash early for “Fuck You Burger’s” then Bar25.
The Listenerd points us to this fantastic XXL interview with rapper DMX that covers many topics, including the presidential election. A felon, DMX canâ€™t vote, so heâ€™s not paying too much attention to the process.
Are you following the presidential race?
Not at all.
Youâ€™re not? You know thereâ€™s a Black guy running, Barack Obama and then thereâ€™s Hillary Clinton.
His name is Barack?!
Barack Obama, yeah.
What the fuck is a Barack?! Barack Obama. Where he from, Africa?
Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
What the fuck?! That ainâ€™t no fuckinâ€™ name, yo. That ainâ€™t that niggaâ€™s name. You canâ€™t be serious. Barack Obama. Get the fuck outta here.
Youâ€™re telling me you havenâ€™t heard about him before.
I ainâ€™t really paying much attention.
I mean, itâ€™s pretty big if a Blackâ€¦
Wow, Barack! The niggaâ€™s name is Barack. Barack? Nigga named Barack Obama. What the fuck, man?! Is he serious? That ainâ€™t his fuckinâ€™ name. Ima tell this nigga when I see him, â€œStop that bullshit. Stop that bullshitâ€ [laughs] â€œThat ainâ€™t your fuckinâ€™ name.â€ Your momma ainâ€™t name you no damn Barack.
So youâ€™re not following the race. You canâ€™t vote right?
Come on. This was some selfless stuff, I guarantee you every person in his campaign who had a say was in his ear like “Just denounce your pastor, move on, let this blow over.” And barack easily could have done that, but he went big, kept it really real and may have fucked his campaign. But he did what was right, and in an incredibly well written (by barack himself) speech he voiced his opinion on race and showed that this country is a special one. As much as I can bash the US of A this man gives me hope.
He doesn’t play by the safe political rules and it may cost him the election but this dude is saying things that need to be said.
Sadly this may be way too complicated of a speech and a message for most of america. News outlets are gonna shrink it into a 4 word headline and that’s all most of us will see.
Don’t be that person, watch the speech above. Gather your thoughts, create an opinion and let me know what you think down below.
(sorry this got political but christ this was a ballsy move on Baracks part)

Barack Obama, a person who some have touted as “America’s fastest rising political star” has taken the first steps to running for president in 2008.
Democratic Sen. Barack Obama said Tuesday he is taking the initial step in a presidential bid that could make him the nation’s first black to occupy the White House.
Obama announced on his Web site, www.barackobama.com, that he was filing a presidential exploratory committee. In a video on his exploratory committee web site, Obama said, “On February 10th, at the end of these discussions, in my home state of Illinois, I’ll share my plans with my friends, neighbors and fellow Americans.”
The serious debate here is do you think America is ready for a black president? I don’t know. I personally don’t think so, I think Hilary Clinton will have a tough enough time as a woman. Regardless go read more about Barack Obama’s run for president here.
