Never Heard Of Common?

In Episode 9: “Kahn not Khan, Gay Marriage and Gangstas in Da House,” we discussed in the last segment why American artist Common’s appearance at the White House caused such controversy.

I wanted to share something with you:


I Have A Dream, by Common

In search of brighter days, I ride through the maze of the madness,
Struggle is my address, where pain and crack lives,
Gunshots comin’ from sounds of Blackness,
Given this game with no time to practice,
Born on the Black list, told I’m below average,
A life with no cabbage,
That’s no money if you from where I’m from,
Funny, I just want some of your sun
Dark clouds seem to follow me,
Alcohol that my pops swallowed bottled me,
No apology, I walk with a boulder on my shoulder,
It’s a Cold War – I’m a colder soldier,
Hold the same fight that made Martin Luther the King…


Dark clouds seem to follow me…I just want some of your sun… I mean, wow.

Frankly, I found that pretty poetic.

You can watch the video here, you will NOT be sorry.

Plus it’s got stuff about Jewish people in there.  Double points for relevance for me!!

Faiqa’s Interfaith Awesomeness Total: 3,412 / Mike’s Interfaith Awesomeness Total: 3.5

The half a point is for saying “Khan” correctly, BTW.

P.S. We’ve gotten a few responses about listeners “being behind” on listening to the podcast.  Just wanted to remind you, this isn’t One Life to Live or something, there’s no real order… you can listen to whatever episode you like whenever you like!  We’re always thankful for your support.   🙂

    I demand a recount. I should at least be up to 3.75 for not referring to all Muslims as “You People” in the past 15 days.
