Fox News Forces Controversial New Regulations Upon White People
Last night I was cruising Twitter in search of some solace after my beloved Boston Celtics were promptly eliminated from the NBA playoffs. Before I knew it my stream was overloaded with tweets and re-tweets from hip-hop star, Talib Kweli, best known for his incredible solo work and teaming up with the amazing Mos Def to form Black Star.
Kweli was upset over Fox News' treatment of fellow artist and actor, Common, a man recently seen in "Date Night" and "Terminator Salvation". I had no idea what he was talking about, but was eventually able to decipher from the hashtag #FoxNewsSucks that it had to do with an appearance at the White House. Oh boy here we go. I put it in the back of my head, got ready for bed and eventually turned on The Daily Show.
That is when it was all explained. Wow. This isn't just any wow either. It's a huge-ass badonkadonk WOW. Jon Stewart dedicated ten minutes to the latest "When out of touch white folks and Fox News employees talk about things they have no business talking about" debacle.
As you can see in the following two clips Jon's exhausted by all of this hypocritical rhetoric. He even admits that it's too easy to call them on the BS and his staff needs a challenge.
Let me pile on a couple of quotes.
Bill O'Reilly "A man like Common targets a very select audience: young, urban, mostly African-American."
Ummmmmm Bill, Common is a Grammy winning artist and I had no clue I was young (36), urban (suburban) and African-American (I feel like RIchard Pryor in "Hear No Evil. See No Evil" when he shouts "You mean I'm not white????")
Sarah Palin "I'm not anti-rap. In fact, like Bret Baier, I know the lyrics to "Rapper's Delight." too."Continued on the next page
