Not one of us

I suppose it was only a matter of time before 2008 presidential hopeful Barack Obama made some sort of overture to the hip-hop community, even if it didn’t amount to much other than taking a picture with Beyonce.

Monday night, Island Def Jam chairman L.A. Reid held one of these Hollywood fundraiser events for the candidate at his home in New York. Your boy Jay-Z was in attendance, along with the likes of Babyface, Jermaine Dupri, Andre Harrell, and other such music industry tokens.

The New York Daily News:

“[Obama] spoke for about 20 minutes, never mentioning Hillary Clinton,” one guest tells us. “He was very impressive. People formed a circle around him. He shook everybody’s hand and asked what they did.”

One lady needed no introduction. Feasting his eyes on Beyoncé, the candidate said: “I never do this, but can I ask for your autograph?” The admiration seemed mutual as they posed for a photo. “I want a copy of that picture!” said Obama.

How genial of him.

Keep in mind this is the same Beyonce who has performed at President Bush’s inauguration as well as sung songs with Cam’ron about slinging coke. Is there anything she wouldn’t do for a dollar? Probably, though I’m at a loss for what that would be.

Suffice it to say that if this is the extent of Obama’s outreach in the hip-hop community, then I’m even less impressed with him than I was before. Granted, I never bought for a minute that hip-hop youth are particulary valuable as a voting bloc anyway, but come on. Beyonce?

Personally, I could give a rat’s ass whether the guy’s really black or not. (And he’s not.) But obviously it’s been one of the defining issues of his campaign. So far he’s yet to receive the level of support from the black community he would get if people really thought he was one of us.

For example, according to the Daily News story, Queen Latifah is hardly sold on Obama:

“This is not the year to give anybody the election,” Queen Latifah told us at Monday’s premiere of her affecting HBO movie, “Life Support,” “I’m a woman. And I’m an African-American. It’s an exciting race, but we need to scrutinize everybody. Let ‘em earn my vote.”

As such, I couldn’t help but find it ironic that he would attempt to bolster his street cred by kicking it with Beyonce, perhaps the least authentically black of the black celebrity elite.

Don’t believe me? Take a look at the facts:

a) Take a look at Beyonce’s hair and facial features, as well as her mother, who has about the same complexion as Hulk Hogan. For all we know, Beyonce might be as white as Barack Obama.

b) Lest we forget, Beyonce was raised in the cracka-ass cracka suburbs, just like Bol. The fact that she speaks with such a bizarre accent obviously has more to do with the fact that she was taken out of school at an early age to pursue a career in music.

If none of this occurred to Barack Obama’s handlers, then he might need to get some new handlers.

Either way, if Barack Obama is really interested in reaching out to the hip-hop community, he might try speaking to the issues that affect us the most, rather than posing for pictures with a few token celebrities.

    go fuck youself bitch this is one pointless blog

    Barack is half black half white jus like Malcom,Bob Marley, Alicia keys so if all these represent the black community so should Barack infact Barack’s father was kenyan last time I checked kenya was in Africa.

    quit with that Beyonce shit, what now Beyonce is white? why coz she does not have a getho attitude and so is Oprah wright.

    listen you do not know Baracks plans so dont try and make up shit, you are jus a blogger and he’s a politician get it, so you can’t teach him anything especially how to reach out to certain people he went to school for that shit.

  • these posts are racist

    BOL-

    Let’s discuss Obama’s “blackness”. The U.S. has only had white male presidents, correct? Black people and white people have all voted for these white male candidates, correct? A lot of white people will not vote for a black person, simply because he is black, correct? But, whites and blacks have and will vote for a white candidate, correct?

    So, wouldn’t it be in Senator Obama’s best interest to run as a white candidate? Why doesn’t he just run, as a white candidate then? Could he do that? …exactley.

    Finally, upon graduating from Harvard law school, at the top of his class, Senator Obama had his pick at all of the largest high paying law firms in the world. He chose however, to work in the low-income black community of Chicago. He dedicated years of his life to helping low-income people of color on the South Side of Chicago. This is a fact.

    BOL, do some real research, don’t just cherry pick events (like Obama posing for a picutre with Beyonce) and define him and his commitment to people of color/low-income people by the event(s) you pick…

    I visit your blog daily, not because I like you, but because you do sometimes stimulate a good discussion. This is not one of them. Don’t criticize Barack for being who he is (or who you think he’s not). Let’s celebrate a black man, a minority, or whatever you think of him as, for what he is doing and the energy and passion he is doing it with. Your blog today makes you look real ignorant, selfish, and jealous. It’s not everyday we have one of us seen in a positive light, much less, running for the highest office in the world. Get over your own quirks and bias, because you really sound like a crab in a bucket today. Unlike some other folks on here, I actually think you’re well-versed in most of the subjects you write about, this is not one today…

    And posing with Beyonce is a hell of a lot safer than, say, Jermaine Dupree. And you are right, the hip hop voting community is not vrey important, so why screw everything up by posing with people who do songs called “Ridin Rims” etc. etc.

    And how is Barack Obama not black? Is it because he was not born in a ghetto? I dont get it. Why are there so many qualifications to being black?

    Obama graduated from Columbia University in 1983, and moved to Chicago in 1985 to work for a group seeking to improve living conditions in poor neighborhoods plagued with crime and high unemployment. In 1991, Obama graduated from Harvard Law School where he was the first African American president of the Harvard Law Review. He then moved back to Chicago and directed a voter registration drive, then worked for a civil rights law firm.

When I stated that he dedicated years working w/ low-income people of color, etc. I didn’t say he doesn’t need to do more, or that this in itself makes him black or even a person worthy of praise.

    I used it to refute your assertion that all he’s done is take a picture with Beyonce.

    Also, I’d appreciate it if you’d address my other points.

    Sad part is that in order to “Keep it Real” all of the qualifications revolve around negative actions.

    (lmao @ Billy Sunday’s assertion that Paul Wall is blacker than most blacks cuz he married a black woman and wears grillz, but Bol’s assertion is that Obama is whiter than most blacks cuz he’s intelligent, doesn’t use slang and graduated from college)

    Is it me or is there something wrong with this? This type of mentality by both bloggers who can use these forums to unite and bring some positive light to the masses is killing hip hop just as much as the gimmicky jig rap that they blast.

    Beyonce is not black. probably part black. just look at her mother. Long hair. extreme light skin. and pointy nose. But that what makes beyonce attractive right?

  • these posts are racist

    For the record.

    I do not think Senator Obama is any different than any other presidential candidate. He wants to win the election, and in order to win the election, he has to follow the orders of big lobby groups. He will not change the lives of blacks/poor people or other people of color in this country.

    I am simply taking issue with the couple of things you touch on in your post, namely, that he is not black.

    That said, anyone who wants to become president of the U.S., as the current political process works, has to listen to big business and the big lobby groups that really control the U.S. Goverment…and often times, the interests of those groups are contrary to the interests of black americans/poor americans/other minorities and sometimes, all of America as a whole…but that’s the way politics work.

You are such a simple minded individual that only lives in the now and can’t fully understand that there’s a future for us that needs to be shaped by us. Hip hop youth not a valuable voting bloc??!!! Anybody 18 and over is valuable when it comes to voting but people like you can’t reach them so they quit trying!! I really hope your not a father because you might box in your kids like you have your own race. The future is unknown so we have the opportunity to mold it ourselves. As for the picture, it was just publicity. It’s not a neccasity to reach out to the hip hop community anyway. Do you see McCain kicking it with Tim McGraw? Hillary hangin with Gwen Stafani?

    On the real. No politician cares about poor people/oppressed people. It’s not in their interest to do so.

    People like Queen Latifah are very naive. You think these politicians are going to “earn” anyone’s vote?

    The truth. We don’t really have a “choice”. We are forced to choose between two candidates every four years as they are the only viable options.

    The two candidates spend about 500 million dollars on their campaigns! Think about that, a half of a billion dollars…

    More importantly, we are sitting hear debating about who is better, Hilary or Obama, as if the two are running against each other. They are not! One of them will be selected by the Democratic party during the primaries…Queen Latifah and everyone on this blog have nothing to do with it.

    In the end, big business and the various lobby groups control who gets the money, and therefore who gets elected, and therefore what type of laws/policy, etc. gets put into effect…

    The marginalized, remain marginalized.

    Niggaz like Lil’ Wayne can use the same fuckin’ sentence against you. Callin’ him a snitch and gay … or Bol callin’ Kanye a closet homosexual..

    You know what? we allow you your dumbass opinions as well, even though you put rappers names on yo’ muthafuckin’ lips and are lying, right?

    Listen BS, don’t get all sensitive on me and shit. You’re gettin’ your panties up in bunch about NOTHIN’, a fuckin’ comment. You don’t think the niggaz you post whole blogs about feel the same way? STOP ACTIN’ LIKE A BITCH-NIGGA.

    … this is the smokin’ gun that definitely proves your “bitchmade”

    “you wanted to stay outta Bol’s lane but you just had to comment” .. fuckin’ clown ..

  • self hating NIgga aka bol

    bol I read your blog because i know your going to say something crazy but sometimes you say the things that people are afraid to say but most of the time your doing the samething these rappers posioning our community with lies mixed with truth everybody knows in america if you have One drop of black your black in fact do you think people of multicultural back grounds like obama would have been treated any diffrently pre civil war yes he would have been what the african american would have call a “House Nigga” But a nigga none the less Its funny that the one time in history a Black Man Has a chance to become president you smear his name your pathetic excuse for a black hip hop blogger and its sad cause these kids are so addicted to shock value that they will be entertained and mesmerized by B.S. such as the slander you are spewing out of your mouth the truth is you probaly hate your self for being black.

    WHY WONT YOU DIE ALREADY???

  • NickeNitro

    You’re idiotically buying into the NY Times lies about how black people are again. I cannot think of a single time I have ever, EVER, heard a black person say they wouldn’t vote for someone if they are not “black” enough.

    In fact, black people vote strictly on the issues overwhelmingly more than any other voting bloc. Black people vote more than 90% for the Democrat in every election — they know where they stand politically. Plus, the VAST majority of those Democrat candidates are white, so it’s never, EVER, been about race or “blackness.”

    Every other voting bloc has a bunch of wishy-washy swing idiots who have no idea what they stand for, and then a bunch of legally retarded people dumb enough to vote Republican because they love watching people die in wars and really really rich people get even richer at their expense.

    Black people have had the system figured out for a long time — it’s about the issues, not skin color. You have got to be one of the dumbest, most easily brainwashed fools to believe that black people need someone to be “black” enough to get their vote, Bol. But that much was already obvious.

    Black americans are funny people. I took some african (kenya) to provide a viable black presidential candidate. Black peeps there always thinking about bullshit such as “he’s not one of ours”. Why? Because he went to Harvard? You guys are eternal haters. The president is not suppose to represent a race, but the whole U.S.A. The president won’t do programs based on race, but the collectivity. Start going to school first and discuss your bullshit in barbershop later!

  • EnglandRepresent

    Good article Bol. I swear there’s some ridiculously ignorant black muthafuckas in the good ol’ US of A. Don’t you nigs know to take half of what Bol posts with a pinch of salt, tongue-in-cheek (big no homo)? Man, you Yankee niggas get so heated over an intentionally inflammatory post, can you not see that that is what it is? Can you not see that Bol is just pissing around? smh @ dumb as fuck Yankee niggas…….

  • Enlightened

    US????? Who is us? Bol, you ain’t one of us nigga

  • INDUSTRY GUY

    Obama is Black! If he would have married a cracka-ass cracka then I’d be suspicious, but he has a Black wife and Black kids you trole!!!

  • Rizzop

    Co sign my dude!! That dude should be in the hood….The real hood seeeing what the fuck is going down. he wont win because his not convincing the right people. He has to step up and show colored folk why we should vote for him. Im from boston and even clinton came to roxbury, and he got my co sign from that point on. This is a cracka ass cracka in diguise until he shows me other wise…Good post, Long live hip hop ( even the south!!)

  • http://www.myspace.com/bigsydproductions i say

    im black and i want to know why we always put each others down.lets support and stick together like the old days.obama is black and black is black.do you think if he was born in the nazi time in germany he be considered white?just think about it for a moment.

    we need to stop hating on one another,like n.o.r.e once said “i get more love from a racist skindhead in europe than i do from my own people”.aint that sad?

    We need to stop this.its 2007 lets grow and move on.don’t limit yourselves look to move ahead in life and stop making excuses.there more things important to do then discuss what colour your next president will be.

  • japanese jones

    i’m feeling u Bol. keep up the good posts

  • http://www.myspace.com/jumz JUMZ

    This guy is a BLACK MAN! Stop hating already… Do you really think we’re going to get a guy like David Banner in the White House right off the back? We gotta feed the people slowly, Barack is the perfect man for the job. The Southern Whities will consider his half whiteness and we should accept him as a BLACK MAN. He’s the only one out of our leaders whose in the best position of becoming president anyway.

    You guys want to knock him because he doesn’t make KFC commercials or wear gold fronts during his campaign? What is being black anyway? How is someone more Black than someone else? That’s ignorant in itself. GET A LIFE

  • rbgstar

    IM sorry looking at beyonce’s lace front wig doesnt tell us anything that bitch is black just light skinned

  • ww20

    This dude sounds like an idiot, How in 2007 is a professional writer questioning someone’s blackness based on how light or dark skinned they are. Get off that slave shit man and grow up. Notice that I’m not directly supporting Obama as a candidate because I’m not sure about him yet either but I’m basing it on photo ops or he color of his skin, GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE WITH THAT DUMB SHIT!

  • jrjomo

    1. He’s a presidential Candidate, so kicking it with 50 and MOP won’t gain him anything.
    2. It’s a fund raiser, so what you call token, I call rich.
    3. Street cred is good for what these days. Not a damn thing because we don’t buy records.
    4. Why didn’t you do a story on Timbaland throwing a fundraiser for Hillary since she will be the only other real contender.

  • http://www.myspace.com/sinistahmoneybagz Sinistah…. 973′s Own!

    Barak wanted to reach out to Hip-Hop, he would’ve spoke to Crazy Sam or went to visit Chi-Ali. not this half assed attempt. shit i would’ve respected him kickin wit J-Hud at a local Popeyes than this.

    but nah, fuck it……..

  • i’m tired of this shit

  • I am Him

    Dear,
    Bol and Brothers and sisters, I am here to tell you that I charge the white man. I charge the white man with being the greatest murderer on earth. I charge the white man with being the greatest kidnapper on earth. There is no place in this world that this man can go and say he created peace and harmony. Everywhere he’s gone he’s created havoc. Everywhere he’s gone he’s created destruction. So I charge him. I charge him with being the greates kidnapper on this earth! I charge him with being the greatest murderer on this earth! I charge him with being the greatest robber and enslaver on this earth! I charge the white man with being the greatest swine-eater on this earth. The greatest drunkard on this earth! He can’t deny the charges! You can’t deny the charges! We’re the living proof *of* those charges! You and I are the proof. You’re not an American, you are the victim of America. You didn’t have a choice coming over here. He didn’t say, “Black man, black woman, come on over and help me build America”. He said, “Nigger, get down in the bottom of that boat and I’m taking you over there to help me build America”. Being born here does not make you an American. I am not an American, you are not an American. You are one of the 22 million black people who are the *victims* of America. You and I, we’ve never see nany democracy. We didn’t see any… democracy on the-the cotton fields of Georgia, wasn’t no democracy down there. We didn’t see any democracy. We didn’t see any democracy on the streets of Harlem or on the streets of Brooklyn or on the streets of Detroit or Chicago. Ain’t no democracy down there. No, we’ve never seem democracy! All we’ve seen is hypocrisy! We don’t see any American Dream. We’ve experienced only the American Nightmare!

  • Dj WMD

    can say that i intrest in discussion about how “white” or “black” this guy is?

    is it possible to take it to a more serious level? This is what makes us brothers as bad as the KKK itself? is it relevant what skin color your born with? is eminem a bad artist (and not a lyrical genious) because he is white?

  • RedAlert

    BLAH. Yet another pointless blog by this corny slob on this worthless website. Goodbye.

  • loosenut

    Bol it’s been a while since you made an intelligent post…This is far from inteeligent and you missed your target…You have the right to say whatever and so do I…You yourself come from B.F.E…Being from where you are from you know exaclty where that is. You talk and act just as white as any other subuurban kid but you are still called fat and black…You can’t shake it…For those that don’t know…BFE is bum-F!@k Egypt…

    Bol you’re not one of us…

  • Jerz!

    Seriously. Did anyone see the youtube video of Bol? Hopefully by now everyone has. Anyone who has, must at least have chuckled when they saw the title of this blog. Who is Bol? Some soft spoken dude who would never speak his mind, or be able to defend his points in a public venue asside from the Blogosphere. Word to loosenut (no Cam).

  • Anonymous

    Bol, you are mad ignorant, a mental product of slavery, its sad.

  • BIGNAT

    bol why the fuck do you care about obama? if he really does become prez his term will be as long as it takes for someone to get a clear shot hahahahaha. the man just wants a picture with beyonce if you could get close enough to her. i am sure you will pull that you dropped your wallet joint to take pics of her bent over. you seem to be that kind of sick perverted loser. if hilary wins which i really doubt because it’s no way they letting bill back in the white house. he will be turning tricks in front of the white house while hilary overseas.

  • Brendan

    Bol is stupid as fuck.

  • TrillGates

    I knew i should’ve checked this site. How ya’ll catz gon jump on Bol for slinging shit on Obama? If you do research like your boy says at the top you’ll see that the Senators middle name is “”Hussien”" which is not a Hawaiin name. Get a life. If you think the crackas is gon let a wigger named Hussien in the “”WHITE”" House, u trippin like Jimi Hendrix.

  • http://NONE KILLABLACK

    Bol you are a hater, I never heard such bullshit in one of your columns before, now, my girlfriend doesnt like beyonce that much,but she feels the same way i feel,just cause obama wanted a picture with her dosent mean hes swallow, it mean her rather take a picture with B than those other funny looking niggers, like camel face jay, and it also tells me hes human,cause he likes and appreciates pretty women.HES A MAN, if it was 20 years ago and in the same setting it would be Diana Ross hes taking a picture with, it wouldnt be with Smokey Robinson. next time try too hide your hate alittle better, see fuck up when you said something about her skin complexion, that had nothing to do with the convo. STOP HATTEING, ITS A SICKNESS.

  • Harvard

    woah fat bitch,

    Beyonce was certainly not raised in cracka-ass anything. She grew up in historic Third ward, a black neighborhood in Houston, Texas. She lived off of Macgregor, which is the historic upper middle class BLACK neigborhood in the heart of Houston city. Beyonce lived 5 minutes from MacGregor Park, where every southside Houston rapper grew up. In Houston, blacks live together, those with money and those without. Don’t speak on shit you don’t know, you ignorant fat fuck.

  • trp

    bol you’re fucking idiot… beyonce didn’t even grow up in the fucking suburbs… she grew up on macgregor in the heart of 3rd ward, houston, tx, and then later their family moved to braeswood (still not the boonies) when the girls were in middle school. quit makin shit up.

  • trp

    man i go to macgregor park like every other day to match a blunt with my friends. its a real nice place to go in the hood to go smoke or sip. the cops don’t generally fuck with us.

    FUCK THIS ARTICLE . IF YOU KNEW YOUR HISTORY YOU WOULD KNOW LIGHT SKINNED AFRICAN AMERICANS DERIVED FROM BEING MIXED WITH AN ANGLO SAXIN (WHITE PEOPLE). WHY DO YOU THINK MOST OLDER ANGLO SAXIN MEN HATE TO SEE A BLACK MAN OR A BLACK WOMAN DATING A FELLOW ANGLO SAXIN? AFTER HAVING A MIXED BABY THAT MAY FALL IN LOVE WITH ANOTHER BLACK PERSON AND HAVE A BABY , THEN THAT SEED IS COMPLETLY BLACK. TAKE A WHITE CRAYON AND A BLACK ONE AND COMBINE THE COLORS ON A PIECE OF PAPER AND SEE WICH COLOR IT WOULD TURN.
