Obamawatch 2008! continues
Yes, for all of those uppity Negroes out there, Barack Obama did in fact ‘brush his shoulders off’ in an attempt to get rid of the ‘dirt’ called Hillary Clinton, George Stephanopoulos, and Charlie Gibson. This clip doesn’t show it, but I couldn’t help but let out an audible laugh when I first saw the clip that hearkens of the Jay-Z song “Dirt Off Ya Shoulders” when I saw the black people sitting behind him IMMEDIATELY recall the song and he got a rousing ovation. Naturally the white people clapped because it’s an international sign of getting up, dusting oneself off and not worried about events.
But, for what it’s worth, that was a code sign for blacks in this country that he’s one of us. ONE OF US!!! ONE OF US!!! But anywayzzz, it was nice to see him loosen up and have some true genuine fun for a moment.
Keep it uppity, and keep it radical, JLL
