Tone Def: Nelly Just Wanted to “Kick Ass” Over “Tip Drill” Protest

In the past, Nelly has expressed his frustration with a group of protesters who boycotted his 2004 bone marrow drive at Spelman College due to his sexually explicit music video, “Tip Drill.” The planned drive was in support of his sister, Jacqueline Donahue, who later lost her battle to leukemia in 2005. And while the multi-platinum rapper may have been mum on the college’s protest in recent years, today during an appearance on HuffPost Live he revealed the one thing he would’ve done differently in retrospect to the demonstration.

“The Spelman thing, the only thing I feel I would’ve did different is kick somebody’s ass…that’s just how it felt to me, Pimp,” he said to host Marc Lamont Hill. “I don’t have my sister. And I doubt it if half of those girls are still campaigning for what they quote, unquote took advantage for that opportunity for.”

“You [protesters] robbed me of a opportunity. Unfairly, my brother. Because we could’ve still had your conversation after I got my opportunity, but it could’ve been somebody that was coming to that bone marrow drive that day, that was possibly a match for my sister. That didn’t come because of that…”

Fiasco: Lupe Critical of Obama at Inauguration Concert

Lupe Fiasco reportedly created a bit of a row on Sunday by insulting President Obama during an inaugural event.

Although Fiasco was booked as the headliner for the StartUp RockOn concert in celebration of Obama’s reelection, the 30-year-old Chicago rapper apparently had no plans to cheer the current administration. Instead, after taking the stage at The Hamilton in Washington, he reportedly announced that he didn’t vote for the president in the 2012 election and spent more than 30 minutes performing an anti-war song.

Here is What They Think About You!: Black Camerawoman Receives Racist Attack at RNC

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer spoke out about the racist attack on a network camerawoman at the Republican national convention on Wednesday. On Tuesday night, two attendees threw nuts at a black CNN camerawoman and said, “this is how we feed the animals.” Multiple witnesses saw the incident, and police immediately removed the two attendees from the convention center. CNN confirmed that the incident happened via a statement released on Tuesday, but did not have further comment at the time.

Blitzer described the “very ugly exchange” on Wednesday afternoon, in the first time that the network addressed the incident on-air. He said that the incident was “truly shocking” and “hit home” for people at the network.

“It’s just an ugly reminder that there is an element of hatred that still exists in our country,” he said. Speaking to Blitzer, CNN political analyst Donna Brazile said that she hopes the two attendees have their convention credentials revoked.

That same afternoon, CNN’s Don Lemon was incredulous that another news outlet reported the incident before CNN did. “Another network http://lnkd.in/p7uWrP tweeted & reported the camerawoman story before #CNN did. Wait, what?!!” he wrote.

Louisiana Voucher Program: Crazy ‘Facts’ Students Will Be Taught Under Bobby Jindal’s Program

Under Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal’s sweeping new school voucher program, tens of millions of Louisiana taxpayer dollars will be used to offer vouchers to more than half of the state’s poor and middle-class public school students. These students can in turn use these vouchers to attend more than 120 private schools, including a number of small, Bible-based learning institutions that boast extreme anti-science and anti-history curriculums while championing creationism.

Earlier this week, C. Welton Gaddy, the president of a national multi-faith religious group, blasted Jindal’s program in a letter to the governor, claiming the effort represents “a ruthless attack on public education” and violates the separation of church and state.

“Let me be clear: I am not appalled that a Christian school is teaching its students that God created the Earth … Children in my church learn that every Sunday,” Gaddy wrote. “I am appalled that these schools are teaching theology as science, and they’re doing so with government money, my tax dollars.” (more…)

Lying @$$ B!#ch: Roots Band Sneak a Diss on Bachman During Fallon Appearance


(You will have to scroll ahead until about 22min to see it)

It’s usually the host delivering the political snark, but last night on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” it was the house band that provided the pointed message. As US Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) made her way across the stage, The Roots, who back Fallon each night, played a coded message of a song for her introduction music. Astute ears — or Twitter followers of drummer Questlove — could identify the song: “Lyin’ As* B*tch” by Fishbone.

While the audience only heard a “la la” refrain, the message was sent. Before the show, Questlove tweeted, “aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title.” Following the performance, he retweeted a number of fans who praised the choice of snark — including one who called it the “perfect entry song for her” — and then wrote, “take a guess. buy the record anyway. its classic and should be in your vocabulary,” and provided a link to buy the album on iTunes.

Back With A Vengeance: Keith Olbermann Tears Into Obama Over Debt Deal

Keith Olbermann tore into President Obama for contemplating a compromise with the Republicans over the debt ceiling that includes cuts in Social Security and major changes to Medicare.

Obama has repeatedly offered to raise the age of Medicare eligibility, and has put Social Security cuts firmly on the table in his attempts to craft a deal with the GOP to raise the debt ceiling.

In a Special Comment on his Monday show, Olbermann spoke out strongly against any tinkering with Medicare and Social Security. He delivered what he called a “sermon” about what he called America’s “greatest accomplishment”: the social safety net that includes the two programs.

Olbermann then issued a stinging warning to President Obama about what might occur if he agreed to alter Medicare and Social Security: YouTube Preview Image

After judging that Storms was masturbating, the woman and another mother who witnessed the event both alerted deputies. (more…)
