In the wake of what is Charleston, and President Obama’s use of the n-word, the New York native speaks his truth on the bigger picture in America. It’s “BIGGER than BLACK and WHITE,” he says on Instagram. It is, however, “about America selling a false dream.” Nas frequently wonders, as a Black man, how can a country like ours, a country responsible for the biggest export – one he calls culture – still make one feel like they do not belong. How do we change this? Look to the “past, present & future,” he says.

Ha! Gay Couple Purchases JebBushForPresident.com For $8 Dollars!


Sorry Jeb, looks like you’ll have to find another domain name to run your presidential campaign from. A gay couple from Oregon, C.J. Philips and Charlie Rainwater, purchased the website to educate others with different beliefs about LGBT matters. The couple addressed their actions via The Rachel Maddow Show to explain why they chose to buy the domain name. “Charlie and I were talking like, ‘Wouldn’t it be funny to use Jeb Bush’s name to educate people about LGBT issues?’ We got on the Internet, and two minutes later, we bought the domain for eight bucks.”

C.J. went on to explain, “We’d really like to use it as a platform for letting people learn about real LGBT faces, what we’re really like. So many times in our past we’ve heard people ask us questions because they don’t know another gay couple. They don’t realize that two guys who look like us, big ol’ bears, are a couple.”

Classic move. See the full clip from the show here!
