Bush Bumpin' to 50-cent in the Oval Office

President Bush has written a new proclamation declaring that June 2003 should be called “Black Music Month”. The proclamation was written and signed at the end of the month, so everyone has five days to celebrate: there was no mention of extending this title to future Junes. And while we’re on the semi-topic of the rap industry, does anyone else find it ironic that 50-cent (a black rapper) is being exploited by Eminem (a white rapper), who was in turn exploited by Dr. Dre (a black rapper)? The circle is complete.
