LOT OF CONTROVERSY about this rapper being invited to the White House.

::shrug::

Obama’s the President. He can have anybody over he wants. Still it says something about him — the people he chooses to associate with.

Now, I’m not one who believes that rap lyrics cause the denigration of women, the abuse of drugs, the violence in the streets. If that were so, Romeo and Juliet would cause teen sex and suicide. Can no one accept the notion of a tragedy as a cautionary tale?

That said, I choose not to associate with people who glorify cop killers, regardless of how their other works perform community service, uplift humanity, and glorify God. As somebody else said in another context, I don’t believe that there’s a bye for one murder every 30 years.

And a President who chooses to associate with such is no President of mine.
