D.C. rapper WaleWale told his 3.6 million Twitter followers Friday that Sen. Harry Reids recent comments on the Washington Redskins name was just his way of bringing attention to himself.
Wale, whose real name is Olubowale Victor Akintimehin, said that Mr. Reid was sketchy since he once made comments about then-Sen. Barack Obamas lack of negro dialect in the run-up to the 2008 election.
Anybody been followin the Senator Reid Stuff? the musician tweeted. Senator Reid got a lot to say about other ppl bein racist . But I did a lil research . He sketchy. Basically he [trying to] use racism to make a bigger name for his self.
In 2010, the Senate majority leader told journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann that Mr. Obama could be successful in his election bid because he was a light-skinned African-American with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one. Mr. Reid later apologized for the remarks.
Wale, who also has a friendship with Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, tweeted of Mr. Reid: Same dude tht was talkin down on Obama bein a light skinned with negro dialect all the sudden is a crusader for whats right in race.

Reid is a racist. He should be booted from the Senate.
Dude that was like two years ago.
Hopalong Harry needs to stick to rustling cows and let Americans live their lives.
Another moron “entertainer” who thinks we care about what he has to say-———in poor English.
Glen Toure got his ass handed to him today too.
Screw you: Touré clobbered for foul idiocy about white privilege of Holocaust survivors
RE: Dude that was like two years ago.
Dude, slavery was like 150 years ago...
If this kind of pushback continues, we’re going to be treated to a great show of democrats trying to ditch the “Conversation on race” they so badly wanted to have.
A rapper with common sense..I wonder if the left will go after him for saying the truth
“...WaleWale told his 3.6 million Twitter followers
America’s problem, right there in plain sight”
I don’t have a problem with that. He could convince a 1/2 million people to vote Republican. Which would be the upper end of those on his twitter feed that could/would to vote.
Yeah but he went after Harry Reid so that’s a plus
Isn’t some old white dude talking about what things are racist participating in “Race Appropriation”?
That goes for a whole lot of practitioners of "racial" identity politics besides Reid.
I hoped you would
The Department of Veterans Affairs Inspector General’s Office said Tuesday that 26 facilities are now being investigated nationwide, but our representatives (Senators) are too busy trying to rename the Washington Redskins after 80+ years to even care.
Of course, their media (owned and controlled by our elected Senators) is gives the renaming far more coverage, then they do for the situation of the VA Hospitals.
Where is Senator Patty Murray???
