Today’s Caspar is On Blast with:

I want to know why performers like Kanye feel they are justified in making statements like the above on the hard work, blood, sweat and tears of civil rights leaders like Malcom and Martin.

Can you really compare interracial marriages to same sex marriages...whats more, do you think Malcolm and Martin had the same thing in mind as Kanye?Enlighten me please....Would people have been beaten hosed and had dogs attack them if the rights they were marching for was the right to have sex with whom ever you choose? PLEASE FEEL FREE TO LET IT ALL HANG OUT FOLKS!
Keep passin' the open windows...
