What If The Tea Party Was Black?

A few months ago, Tim Wise wrote a widely circulated article called,

“Imagine if the Tea Party Was Black ” which challenged America to take a

close look at the hypocrisy of the Right Wing. Now, a Pittsburgh rapper

is accepting his challenge in true Hip Hop form. Jasiri X has released a

video called “What if the Tea Party was Black.” The Hip Hop artist says

that he got the idea when Paradise,a member of the pro-black rap group

X-Clan, forwarded him a copy of Wise’s article. “I saw the article and I

liked the concept,” says the rapper. So Jasiri hit the studio with

producer Cynick Lethal while Paradise grabbed his video camera and they

went on their mission to defeat the Right Wing propaganda machine.LYRICSWhat

if the tea party was blackHolding guns like the Black Panther Party

was backIf Al was Rush Limbaugh and Jesse was Sean HannityAnd

Tavis was Glenn Beck would they harm they familiesIf Sarah Palin was

suddenly Sistah SouljahWould they leave it with the votes or go and

get the soldiersYall know if the tea party was blackThe

government would have been had the army attackWhat if Michael

Baisden was on ya FM dialFor 3 hours every day calling the president

foulWould they say free speech or find evidence howTo charge

him with treason like see he’s Un-American nowWhat if Minister

Farrakhan prayed for the deathOf the commander in chief that he be

laid to restWould they treat it as the gravest threat or never make

an arrestEven today he’s still hated for lessWhat if President

Obama would have lost the electionQuit his job so he could go talk

to the left andBash the government for being off of directionFraught

with deception And told black people they want all of our weaponsAnd

we want our own country and called for secessionWould he be

arrested and tossed in correctionsFor trying to foster aggressionAgainst

the people’s lawful selectionOur questionsWhat if the tea

party was blackHolding guns like the Black Panther Party was backIf

Al was Rush Limbaugh and Jesse was Sean HannityAnd Tavis was Glenn

Beck would they harm they familiesIf Sarah Palin was suddenly Sistah

SouljahWould they leave it with the votes or go and get the

soldiersYall know if the tea party was blackThe government would

have been had the army attackWhat If black people went on

Facebook and made a pageThat for the death if the president elect we

prayedWould the creators be tazed and thrown in a cageWe know

the page wouldn’t have been displayed all these daysWhat if Jeremiah

Wright said that everybody whiteWasn’t a real America would you

feel scared of himIf he had a militia with pictures that depict the

president as HitlerThey would kill and bury thatWaitWhat if

Cynthia McKinney lamented the winning of the new presidentAnd hinted

he wasn’t really a true residentWith no proof or evidenceWould

the media treat it like a huge press eventThey would have attacked

whatever group she representsThey would have called her a kook on

precedent And any network that gave her due preferenceWould be

the laughing stock of the news so our question is What if the

tea party was blackHolding guns like the Black Panther Party was

backIf Al was Rush Limbaugh and Jesse was Sean HannityAnd Tavis

was Glenn Beck would they harm they familiesIf Sarah Palin was

suddenly Sistah SouljahWould they leave it with the votes or go and

get the soldiersYall know if the tea party was blackThe

government would have been had the army attack
