Black Comedian's Rap: 'It's a Government Shutdown Because Obama Is Brown'

The Tom Joyner Morning Show is heard across the country on many black-oriented radio stations. In 2011, Joyner was blunt in demanding blacks re-elect Obama: “Let’s not even deal with the facts right now. Let’s deal with just our blackness and pride — and loyalty. We have the chance to re-elect the first African-American president, and that’s what we ought to be doing. And I’m not afraid or ashamed to say that as black people, we should do it because he’s a black man.”

In that spirit of racial "loyalty," Joyner's staff comedian Chris Paul offered a "Morning Minute" rap  on BlackAmericaWeb.com with the online headline: "It’s a Government Shut Down Because Obama is Brown." Boehner also "sounds like Satan" for opposing Obamacare (Warning: the rapping stinks):

Move Boehner, get out the way! / Get out the way, Boehner, get out the way!
It’s a government shut down / Because our president is brown
Republicans hate Obama so badly / They jeopardize the livelihood of thousands of families!
John Boehner, Speaker of the House? / Nothin’ but bull[bleep] comes outta his mouth!
Obamacare is law, but Boehner keeps hatin’ / Opposin’ health care? That sounds like Satan.

A few weeks ago, Paul was mocking "bonehead Boehner" even as he sided with Obama on bombing Syrian targets. Paul's Morning Minute mangled Stevie Wonder with the lyric: "Ebony and Ivory / work together to bomb a foreign count-ree."
