The Obamas invited some high profile rappers for an evening at the White House. Presumably they talked about wholesome ways to promote good values in their communities through their art.
The dignitaries included Rick Ross, Jay Z and Beyonce, and Nicki Minaj.
It must have been a thrilling night for the Obama girls, chatting with musicians whose rap reflects the trials and tribulations of young lovers and inner city blacks in today's challenging world.
Later, commenting on the crude language employed by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, First Lady Michelle Obama said, "I can't stop thinking about this (Trumps chatter with Billy Bush about how easy it is to grope fawning women). It has shaken me to my core…What message are our little girls hearing about who they should look like, how they should act?"
That would be a really good question if it weren't so disingenuous.
She had no problem embracing the rappers whose lyrics glorify misogyny and
date rape...does anyone see the hypocrisy here? Besides the persistent overuse of the F and N word in their 'music', which is common language in the vernacular of rap, these folks are enamored with sexual subservience.
Nicki Minaj -"Yes I do the cooking/ Yes I do the cleaning/ Yes I keep the nana real sweet for your eating/ Yes you be the (boss) yes I be respecting."
Jay Z - "Slid the panties right to the side/ Ain`t got the time to take drawers off!"
Beyonce - "He popped all my buttons and he ripped my blouse/
He monica-lewinski'd all on my gown..."
Rick Ross - "Put molly all in her champagne/ She ain't even know it /
I took her home and I enjoyed that/ She ain't even know it."
Mrs.Obama, one thing is for sure; our White House virtue will never be the same.
