This is something to ponder.
A few months ago,Â Tim Wise wrote a widely circulated article called, â€œImagine if the Tea Party Was BlackÂ â€œwhich challenged America to take a close look at the hypocrisy of the Right Wing.
Now, a Pittsburgh rapper is accepting his challenge in true Hip-Hop form.
Jasiri X has released a video calledÂ â€œWhat if the Tea Party was Black?â€
The Hip Hop artist says that he got the idea when Paradise,a member of the pro-black rap group X-Clan, forwarded him a copy of Wiseâ€™s article. â€œI saw the article and I liked the concept,â€ says the rapper. So Jasiri hit the studio with producer Cynik Lethal while Paradise grabbed his video camera and they went on their mission to defeat the Right Wing propaganda machine.
In the part of this song Jasiri says:
What if the tea party was black
Holding guns like the Black Panther Party was back
If Al was Rush Limbaugh and Jesse was Sean Hannity
And Tavis was Glenn Beck would they harm they families
If Sarah Palin was suddenly Sistah Soaljah
Would they leave it with the votes or go and get the soldiers
Yall know if the tea party was black
The government would have been had the army attack
