"OBAMA NATION (7)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, June 8 2009 - It's scary to hear, or better: not hear many of the voices within Reggae that used to protest, chant down, and expose the works of Babylon through the Bush administration.
Like many, the voices have not only silenced, but turned into voices of praise for a man who perpetuastes and accelerates that very same policy.
It can't be, that Barack Obama is the first not-completely-white president of the USA. After all, the colour of a man's skin is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes.
And a look to the men behind Barack Obama doesn't reveal a group of freedom fighters, who chant down Babylon.
Quite the contrary...
