The White House is standing behind its decision to welcome rapper Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., AKA Common, to Washington, D.C. Wednesday night amidst controversy over the hip hop artists lyrics which include support for violence against cops and former President George W. Bush.
The president opposes those kinds of lyrics, said Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary.
Despite that opposition, Carney indicated that Common would still be welcome at An Evening of Poetry at the White House tonight.
Hes known as a socially conscious hip hop artist or rapper, who in fact, has done, a lot of good things, offered Carney. You can oppose some of what hes done and appreciate some of the other things hes done.

If the White House opposes cop killing lyrics, then they'd disinvite this cockroach from the People's House. You can't have it both ways. And by the way, what exactly has this low life done that we need to appreciate? Denigrating our culture? Furthering the culture of violence and hatred in minority communities? Coarsening our national discourse?
Hurts to ride that pointed picket fence, doesn’t it Obummer?
He fits inline with the squatters soiling the peoples house, NO CLASS AND COULD CARE LESS.
When this comes up in 2012 the kenyan will simply say “just because I was in the same room doesn’t mean I heard what he was saying.” (ala Wright etc)
“O” and Lynn are the same identical crud. So, “O” sees nothing wrong with the guy.
Time to get out the old BS Meter.
A socially conscious rapper? No such thing.
I keep thinking if this were G.W. and he had a racist entertainer at the Whitey House - the media, the RATS would be going bananas, Hell I remember when G. W. was going to speak at Bob Jones University - you would think the way the media reacted he was attending a KKK rally.
This whole thing with the media and racist RATS stinks to high heaven.
Roses are Red
Sunflowers are Yellow

Is one ‘Common’ Fellow.
So, what do you think my chances of being invited to An Evening of Poetry at the White House.
Sounds just like the people I know who voted for him.
I bet they would describe Rev Wright as “socially conscious” as well.
Such scum being allowed to run and ruin or country is unforgivable.
The Obamas make me want to puke.
Oh well, nothing else for them to do but pull the Democrat lever at the election polls. Because that's what union personnel do. Vote Democrat.
Obama embraces the hate, racism and violence perpetuated by the New Black Panthers, gangster rappers and Reverend Wright, secure in the knowledge that anyone who points that out will be branded a racist by the left and MSM.
If GWB had Lee Greenwood at the WH singing “God Bless the USA” the Democrat/Progressive/Socialist Party-media would be having a major fit.
One of the worst insults that my grandmother could hurl at someone was to say that they were, “common”. Methinks this rapper is aptly named.
If I decide to rob a bank tomorrow I’m using this defense. The bank robbing will not represent all of my work, most of which is socially conscious.
