It looks like rapper Waka Flocka is doing some serious backtracking and damage control in regards to his controversial statements about President Barack Obama not being our real first black President.
After receiving much backlash, Waka tweeted out a full explanation of what he “meant”.
We aren’t buying it. He knew that tweet would be controversial, and if this is what he really meant he could’ve posted it to begin with…. although not everyone agrees with his second statement either.
Waka or honestly a friend of his tweeted out,
“Clearly I love our prez and chief. I just think that america as a whole thought it was time for a black president. It was similar to what was expected in the civil rights evolutionary chain. When I stated that I can’t wait until we get a real black president, I meant a black president who is accepted by all who just happens to be black. I do think obama is for the people, I don’t think the people of america were fully about his administration. He was elected into office then had to fight for his agenda at every turn. Bush didn’t. Obama was handcuffed by the same government that was in place to support him. The media can make this about me or they can make it about change in this election year. I said it, I explained it, now I’m done.”
How do you feel about Waka’s statement? Who did Waka pay to try to clean this up?
