So when Trayvon Martin got shot, Obama jumped up and said, “If I had a son he would look like Trayvon.” Now it’s coming out that Trayvon wasn’t as innocent as he was first reported to be. Still Obama stands by his words. Not a problem, everyone is allowed their opinion.
But what I want to know is, even though he was talking to a group of college students Obama said nothing about the Passing of Adam Yauch, better known as MCA as part of the musical trio The Beastie Boys. Arguably of one of the greatest bands of all time. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. Along with artists like Run DMC, Grand Master Flash and LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys helped get the Hip-Hop culture started. Who hasn’t heard “Fight for your right (to party)” “Sabotage” “Brass Monkey”? Those are the songs that helped get Hip-Hop going. And no word from Obama. Yet Earlier this year when crack addict Whitney Houston died there was a statement from the white house about Obama’s thoughts and prayers going out to her family, especially her daughter, who by the way was caught getting high at Whitney’s funeral. In 2009 when Michael Jackson, a drug addict and accused pedophile, died there was a statement of sympathy to the Jackson family and his fans. Read the full article here.
Adam Yauch was a genius in the music industry, his yell on the song “Sabotage” was voted as one of the top yells in music history, right up there with Roger Daltry in “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” He was never the object of rumors or the subject of scandal. What could it be that makes Obama ignore the passing of this music legend? I can only speculate the reason Obama hasn’t spoken out and sent prayers and thoughts to the family, friends and fans of MCA. I will leave it up to you to try and figure out his reason.
