Controversial Rapper to be at White House Poetry GTG

He also went to Revered Wright's church since he was 8 years old. Any thoughts.

You must be a racist since you don't like common since he's black.......



Just waiting for Gandy to come up with some genius statement as to why we are all such simple minded underedumacated racist white men.





Anyways, my opinion of common is he can go blow a donkey schlong because thats all rap is good for.

Re: Controversial Rapper to be at White House Poetry GTG

I heard this on Hannity Radio yesterday! I couldn't believe my ears. They call this poetry? There is no beauty in it. And to add, this doesn't incite violence or culminate anger? I thought since Gabriel Giffords shooting we were all to tone it down? I guess that only applies to the white guy?

Re: Controversial Rapper to be at White House Poetry GTG

Common, controversial??

Common is a very grounded individual, he raps about love and peace. You all find that controversial?. Just cuz he doesn't like Bush(like most people living outside of a Republican Americans Utopia) doesn't qualify him as controversial, just opinionated.

You all have your opinions, and that's is fine.

Do I agree with him talking about burning Bush? ####, preferably if it is rolled into a swisher sweet lol. Then again I don't agree with violence. But he is an individual and has every right you all do to express his opinion.

I could think of much better avenues for you all to be constructive over controversy.

And yes he is a poet. The beauty of poetry is it isn't all the same. It is a individuals own interpretation. A poem is a trip, a journey assisted by the writers vision or by the vision you create in your mind, inspired by the authors words. A poem is a metaphor, not a structured strain of words with only one message.

Re: Controversial Rapper to be at White House Poetry GTG

Common can say what crap he wants. Freedom of speech.

The reason why it it draws attention is that he comes from Wright's church. Anti-white, anti-conservative, anti-rich, and anti-cop. Michelle and Obama were raised on this hatred.

Bringing Common to the WHITE HOUSE, a place that isn't suppose to endorse that kind of hatred, unless the NObama and Michelle share the same ideas. No surprise here.

Ryan.....it wouldn't be controversial if Michelle Obama wasn't inviting him to a poetry event for kids. I could care less what his lyrics are. I am not a person that typically judges one or their actions. I just don't think he is a prime candidate to read poetry at a children's poetry event. I just don't agree with the choice made by the White House.

My opinion has nothing to do with Reverend Wright. My opinion has nothing to do with the Obama's. My opinion is solely based on the fact that he was chosen to speak/read at a poetry event. If you would like me to explain my opinion further, I have no problem with that.....but I think I have made it pretty clear why I feel the way I do.
