Rapper/Actor Common covers the new issue of 944 Magazine and he is looking mighty fine in his black frames. Common sat down with the mag and talked politics. Here is a snippet:
Why do you support Barack Obama? After all, he’s politician, too.
On a practical level, we’re dealing with a lot of hard times and struggles. I see Barack Obama as a beacon of light because, more than anything, I see him promoting love. Of course he’s a politician, working within a system, but he’s been able to show us that we can’t be caught up with old prejudices or focus so much on negative things. I believe that this guy is gonna do right for us because he’s paying attention to middle-and-lower-class people, to-black and Latino, so-called minorities.
