Barack Obama and Common photo from Huffington Post
ran 3.3 miles
Tomorrow night President Obama will be hosting a poetry ceremony at the White House, which “Common”, a poet or rapper of some sort with ties to Reverend Jeremiah Wright, will be headlining. Common, otherwise known as Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., makes lyrical allusions to inciting violence in America, including typical “rap” themes filled with misogyny, guns, and a generally immature and irresponsible use of expletives. I thought about littering the rest of this page with some examples of his work but that would only dignify his it.

Yet again, Barack Obama is displaying how little he cares about America’s interpretation of his actions. This guy, Common, is as offensive and obscene as Jeremiah Wright and, under any other circumstances, I can’t think of one president from the past or the future who would care so little about inviting such a controversial figure into the White House.

1,338.4 miles to go.
