    Obama’s a bitch for calling Kanye a jackass but not standing up to the white republicans who constantly disrespect him….

    ^^
    You can’t really compare the two. And let’s be honest, Kanye is kind of a jackass.

    They pushing this Martin/Zimmerman way too hard to divert attention from whats really happening in the world. Shit like this happens everyday anyway and some of yall are just too involved in something that dont even involve you. What, cause the kid was black killed by a white and he look like Obama son. Whatever

    ^ you’re missing the point. if they weren’t paying attention to this, using trayvon as an example of what happens and what people get away with, it would continue to happen , going completely unnoticed. it’s a good thing that people care. there’s a lot of other shit on the “news” that you could complain about as being an obvious diversion though.

    q-tip on g.o.o.d. music >>>>>>
    that g.o.o.d. music album though <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

  8. Ayo Says:

    I hear you Sir Fakely Deep. I just dont give a fuck about the matter. The only thing I care about is if this zimmerman gets prosecuted and them changing the stand your ground laws. Damn if some black kid getting shot will prevent me from using deadly force if I feel threatened.

  9. AmpGeez a.k.a. Amphernee Hardaway Says:

    Obama gonna be like Magic Johnson after he retires. Big business is gonna have him endorsing Payless sneakers, making commercials for Popeye’s new shrimp po boy.

    Watch.

  10. Jersey*Made*me Says:

    Dude that called him a “LIE” in front of the world was a jackass too,but nothing happened.

    Call him a jackass,publicly. Like you felt the unneccessary need to do Yeezy.

    He did it cuz he’s a coward and he know what’s good if he dared speak ill of that blue eyed white man in public.

    I call PUSSY,fuck what yall screamin’…

    ^okay, that’s one opinion. but RZA gave birth to Just Blaze’s whole style. did you hear the kind of bullshit he was making before he switched up and started doing the soul-sampling Blueprint beats he’s appreciated for?

    RZA’s got to get back to being RZA

  13. Kush Kennedy Says:

    Ironically it was over a lil white bitch that most likely nobody in her family supported or voted for his as

    ^
    That sandra fluke shit?

    Obama was standing up for the woman in a crucial time, he was sticking up for her since the people on the right are trying to get rid of women’s contraception from being on the insurance, they are also forcing bills in some states where women are forced an un-needed vaginal ultrasound before getting an abortion.. So obama sticking up for the white girl, makes a statement to the rest of the country, he trying to get the women vote.

    ^^^
    PETA is a bullshit organization.Do you watch the Daily Show?They ethered PETA for trivializing the 13th Amendment.

  16. jderrida Says:

    BULLSHIT…

    He’s the fucking president jackass. There’s is no more career after that….you bow out gracefully and get followed by secret service until you kick the bucket.

    What career?!

    ^^^

    Jersey your a dumb ass coon.

    He can win one more term as president. His career isn’t over.

    Read a newspaper you dumb fuck, clinton is out of office and still does a lot. Clinton raises billions of dollars for charities that do great work in africa. When the north koreans were firing bombs over japan Obama sent clinton to straight the issue out.

    Presidents have careers after office.

    also obama is the first black president who don’t need to ruin his legacy beefing with petty racist white boys.

    Yeah, but I appreciate the greatness of his catalog already.

    His beats be on some other-other shit.

    ^ OK, I see that. the thing people are concerned with is that last thing you said though. in ‘stand your ground’ states, all a person has to do to claim self-defense is say they ‘felt’ threatened when in reality they were under no threat at all. if it’s in your own home, that’s a different story completely

  20. Bricktop Says:

    give a helping hand where you can afford to…

    but sometimes a drowning man might pull you in with him
    ^
    This one. Like Chief said earlier, I definitely had to unplug from (what was) my current world in order to develop consciously… the kind of development that was stifled by what I had surrounded myself with at that point. Had to read some books to learn things that don’t get taught in high school or my community. And, like EFL, I’ve grown jaded towards society. Swear everyday I flip flop back and forth on whether there’s any hope left in our youth, and whether an emotional investment has any realistic potential for return. And I didn’t even have to use my A-K; today was a good day.
