Common At The Whitehouse: Jon Stewart vs. Bill O’Reily


I’m sure it’s obvious who we’re supporting in this. Common is probably one of the less lyrically violent artists to ever visit the White House. Why the controversy? To make it look like conservatives are crusading for a righteous cause, even though this cause is actually pretty meaningless? Because conservatives hate rap music? Because they’re racist?

disclaimer: I am not some crusader against conservative politics. Conservative figures in the media and politics have taken it upon themselves to make this whole argument one of their fights. I am not saying all conservatives are attention-starved, racist and musically tunnel-visioned, just the ones who don’t want Common in the White House.
