It's safe to say: Lupe Fiasco will not be invited to the White House -- ever. In an interview with CBS News yesterday about the political content in his rap lyrics, the Chicago rapper called president Obama a "terrorist". The 29-year-old said: "My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America....For me, I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's causing the other forms of terrorism. You know the root cause of terrorists is the stuff the US government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists." He also admits that he doesn't vote, calling it "meaningless". Well, everyone certainly has the right to an opinion and in America, everyone is free to say whatever they wish. But, wow!
