  • July/23/08-Nas & Protesters Demand Fox News Stop Racist Smears Against Afro-Americans

    Nas joined a throng of protesters at the Fox News building in Manhattan this afternoon to deliver over 600,000 petitions demanding that the network stop racist smearing against African-Americans and democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

    As SOHH previously reported, Nas partnered with grassroots organizations ColorofChange.org and MoveOn.org to put an end to what they call Fox’s “racist propaganda.”

    “I’m here today to stand with the ColorofChange.org,” Nas said as he read from a prepared speech. “Over 600,000 people of every color across the country are demanding that Fox stop their racist attacks on the Obama family and on black America.”

    “We already know that Fox is not a news network,” he continued. “They are a propaganda machine but their racist attacks have gone way too far. Calling Michele Obama ‘Barack’s baby momma?’ Tell me is that acceptable to you? Is that racist?” he asked the crowd.

    Nas also referenced the network’s portrayal of the fist bump that Barack and Michelle Obama shared as a “terrorist fist jab” and Fox anchor Bill O’Reilly’s call for a “lynching party” for the woman who may become First Lady.

    “Fox poisons this country every time they air racist propaganda and try to call it news,” said the Queensbridge rapper. “This should outrage every American that Fox uses hateful language to talk about the person who may be the first black president.”

    According to Nas the Obamas aren’t the only victims of Fox News. He also blames the network for attacking, black leaders, black institutions, ordinary black people and of course hip-hop artists.

    “It’s offensive to black Americans,” he said. “It’s offensive to all Americans. That’s why I wrote on my new album a song called, ‘Sly Fox,’" he said before reciting a few lines from the song.

    “Watch what you watchin’/ Fox keeps feeding us toxins/ stop sleepin’/ start thinkin’.”

    In related news Nas’ Untitled album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 today. The controversial album was Nas’ fifth No. 1 album, and sold 187,000 albums it’s first week out.

              Nas is a fuckin idiot, good music but an idiot. People just dislike Fox because they don't spoon feed the far left like every other network.

                i think Fox News just hates everybody who isn't on their side...basically, if you don't believe in Fox, you're a secular progressive terrorist sympathizer who enjoyed Brokeback Mountain...

                      Fox News' statement through a spokesperson:

                      "Fox News believes in all protesters exercising their right to free speech, including Nas, who has an album to promote."

                      Five minutes video of Nas at the protest...

                        Nas is on point here. His song Sly Fox is great and it's nice to see him standing up against this so-called "No Spin News Network". Seriously, whoever actually looks at FOX News and sees it as a valid source of information is just dumb, plain and simple. Actually, that's a proven statement and not an opinion since a media literacy study found that those who watch FOX News regularly are actually less informed and still think that they found WMD's in Iraq. Dumb clowns.

                        I still can't believe that "terrorist fist jab" comment. That shit made no sense, it wasn't prefaced or followed with any information that would support that notion, and was just, flat out racist and biased.

                          This makes no sense and ^^^ that's not true. There was also a study that said it was the least biased channel because it gives the other side a chance to debate on every issue. Study about this, study about that, they mean nothing.

                            It does make sense, perfect sense, actually (read it again). Also, your debate comment is false when you look at the context of their so-called "debates", where they pit cherry picked liberals that are submissive in comparison to the conservatives they put on the show. oh, and if studies don't mean anything, why challenge my statement with another study's findings?

                            Now that makes no sense.

                            In addition, all news isn't inherently bad or "bullshit". You can find reliable, truthful and accurate news sources elsewhere, or you can read a variety of news stories so that you can compare them and make your own decision about what you think is happening. It's a matter of not being lazy and actually reading shit.

                              No, every channel tells you what they want you to hear.
