Outrage Over COMMON's Invitation To The White House

HUFFINGTON POST reports that First Lady Michelle Obama had some poets over to the White House to read some poetry, and one of those poets is Chicago rapper Common. Some have expressed outrage that Common was invited due to a few lyrics from some of his past work. Websites such as the DAILY CALLER and FOX NATION have condemned his invitation due to older lyrics/poetry that includes threats to shoot police and at least one passage calling for the "burn[ing]" of then-President George W. Bush. Smells like out of touch GOP sympathizers. Fox Nation even labels Common as "vile". HUH???!! The below video of Common's poem "Letter To The Law" included the content in question. Read the above links for the story.
