It’s no secret that this has been a rough presidency for Barack Obama and he has the gray hair to prove it. Recent before-and-after photos published by outlets including England’s Daily Mail online, Gawker and a number of print tabloids apparently illustrate a recent pronounced darkening of the president’s coif.
Many have cataloged the before-and-after appearances of presidents past, and Obama and his staff have readily admitted he’s no different.
“Change is hard,” Obama told the Urban League last summer. “I don’t know if you’ve noticed. That’s why I’ve got all this gray hair.”
Maybe she had just watched “The Color Purple” or maybe she was just on them beans…again! Whatever the case, Lindsey Lohan was dead ass wrong for referring to President-elect Barack Obama as “our first colored president” on tonight’s Access Hollywood. I almost expect this from red-necked Georgian’s but Hollywood!!! Oh my! I’m more disappointed that the interviewer didn’t call her out on it and they just continued their worthless chatter! *sigh* First the hot-mess cotton-pickin’ inauguration gown and now this! Y’all have got to do better…
Jay-Z is hot on the campaign trail for Barack Obama. Saturday (Nov. 1st), Jay paid a visit to Virginia Union College in Richmond, Virgina where he gave an emotional speech about the importance of this year’s election. Tomorrow will mark a turning point in history. Hopefully, Obama will come out of this race on top, but it’s going to take all of our VOTES to get him there. You can’t sit this one out. VOTE!
Some 7th graders from Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta and their teacher prepared a political rendition of T.I.’s “Whatever You Like”. They group stayed neutral in their performance by separating into two sides and each taking a stand for either McCain or Obama. These kids have made it all the way to CNN! Way to go!
While his wifey is hard at work resurrecting her career, Jay-Z recently completed at public service announcement for Democratic Presidential Nominee, Barack Obama in Michigan. Why Michigan you ask? Well…I dunno. Maybe they were the first to ask. Doesn’t really matter what state it is…the message is still the same. VOTE!!
BTW…don’t sleep. Beyonce has been doing some campaigning of her own and her custom-made designer Barack Obama t-shirts are still available!
OCTOBER 8–Angered by a delay in the receipt of his voter registration card, a Louisiana man today threatened to shoot election officials, claiming that he urgently needed to cast a ballot to “keep the nigger out of office,” according to police. Wade Williams, 75, was arrested this morning on a felony terrorizing charge after allegedly calling the Registrar of Voters and warning that he would come to the state office and empty his shotgun unless he got his registration card. Using profanity and racial slurs, Williams told a state official “about needing to vote to ‘keep the nigger out of office,” according to an Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office affidavit, a copy of which you’ll find here. Though the document does not name the candidate to which Williams is so violently opposed, it seems likely he was referring to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. After being arrested at his Monroe home, Williams was booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center, where the above mug shot was snapped. En route to the jail, he “continued his ‘tirade’ about niggers and also stated that he had a shotgun, but had it hidden at his residence,” (Source)
