Listen to the lyrics; they're... provocative.

And/ but, read this:

or, if that link doesn't work (same text):

It is pretty provocative information too.

Snippet:

~~~ We apologize, to our people and to history.

Since that time as a nobody, Obama has become a great presence that threatens the very fabric of Black politics, having declared there is no such thing. At a recent gathering of Black trade unionists who support the most left-wing social democratic agenda that is allowed in American political discourse, Obama was treated as a savior - despite the fact that his applause-filled speech endorsed almost none of the specific planks of Black trade unionists. He had fudged again, and gotten away with it. No white man could pull it off, but Obama did, and entertained fans for an hour afterwards, taking pictures with folks who wanted to show their grandchildren that they had been in the presence of the next Black president.

He is a knife in our hearts. ~~~

Just an FYI - "An Open Letter to Obama" is by Jin with Pete Miser, two Asian American hip-hop stars. Pete is Dido's DJ. They co-wrote the lyrics and Pete wrote and produced the track. To read the story, check Pete's website -
