Regardless of your race, religion, or political persuasion, I think there’s one thing on which we can all agree: Ben Carson’s new “rap” ad, which is aimed at African-American voters, should disqualify him from the presidency (and from being a DJ). For Christ’s sake, just listen:
According to ABC News, someone actually approved this song and paid $150,000 to get it played on radio stations in cities with large black populations. Jesus Christ.
The song was performed by Aspiring Mogul, who describes himself as the “first and only Christian Republican Rapper.” According to his own website, Aspiring Mogul’s “introspective views, intelligent angles and creative brilliance will sure make him a force to be reckoned with in the music business.”
To paraphrase Hank Hill, this guy isn’t making Christianity/Republicans any better, he’s just making rap worse.
I haven’t been this embarrassed for a candidate since someone told poor John McCain that personally receiving an endorsement from Daddy Yankee was a good idea.
Honestly, all politics aside, our veterans deserve better.
