Snoop Dogg: Obama Funded by KKK

Snoop Dogg, in an interview published last month, has pulled the cover off of Obama, so to speak. Our favorite rapper from the LBC claims that the KKK is giving Obama money. Don’t believe it? Look, if you can’t believe someone who once claimed that he’s either smoking, passing, or rolling up weed from the moment he wakes up until the moment he goes to sleep, then who can you believe? A bit of the interview, from The Guardian:

His [Snoop Dogg’s] responses are near catatonic, with an edge that suggests if only he weren’t so bored by the questions they would be making him angry. But he comes to life when I raise the subject of Barack Obama’s recent speech on race.

“What did he say?” he asks, raising an eyebrow to himself, flirting with his own angular lines.

“Well, he’s having to disassociate himself from his pastor, who was criticised for saying, essentially, that America is built on racism.”

“It is!” he screeches at the mirror.

I’m not quite sure where I’m supposed to be looking: it’s a bit like talking to someone with a wall eye. “Right, but because he wants to be president he still has to disavow this confidant of 25 years,” I say.

“Black America support him on that. By any means necessary. Get in that White House. Then once he get in, he can catch up to old relationships. ‘Cos they looking for a loophole to make him not win.” He almost looks at me, but then seems to think better of it as he whispers: “The KKK gave Obama money.”

“Really?”

“YES.” Snoop has an interesting verbal mannerism of capitalising words without putting any exclamation at the end. “They was one of his biggest supporters.”

“I’ve never heard that.”

“YES. Why wouldn’t they be? The media won’t tell you that. They don’t want you to know that. They just want you to know that this nigger befriended this other nigger who be threatening your values. But we all know all presidents lie to get into fucking office. That’s they job.”

Snoop had some other interesting (and in my opinion, more reasonable) observations:

I mention a recent survey that revealed older black women’s reluctance to vote for Obama because they have a maternal fear that, if elected, he would be assassinated. Snoop sits up straight. “It’s real! It’s true shit. That’s the White House. No niggers allowed!”

So what about Condoleeza Rice? Snoop slouches. “They need us to manipulate and do the bad shit because we conversate and our colour is friendly with other peoples. This colour” – he traces a loving finger down his cheek – “is friendly with every country. That white colour” – he points at me – “ain’t friendly.The white man be threatening the Indian. The white man be threatening the slaves. The white man be threatening the Australians.” (I think he is talking about atrocities against the Aboriginal people.) “That face ain’t to be trusted. That’s why Condoleeza does all the conversatin’ and all the chores around the world. Remember when Clinton was in office, he had the black dude move for him?” Vernon Jordan?

“Yeah, that nigger that covered up shit for him: ‘Say you never had sex with that woman … ‘”

I ask why it is that Snoop doesn’t address these strong political convictions in his music. “I feel it affect me, but I don’t need to be crying and shit on my records.”
