1. Badu wears an anti-Iraq War tee shirt
2. Expresses support for Louis Farrakhan
3. Expresses support for the palestinians (meaning, the terrorists)
4. Badu could not name a single Israeli hip hop artist
You can read the full story here from Haaretz. But it's my view that the United States puts a quarrantine on Badu and not let her back into the U.S. She's a traitor. Let her spend a couple of years in Gaza and see if she changes her tune. See how much she "identifies" with the palestinians at that point. Let her tour Iraq and see if she's against the War in Iraq anymore.
Sit in Gaza, bitch for two years and then come back to the U.S. and tell us who you identify with.
Visiting hip hop artist says identifies with Palestinian hip hop
By The Associated Press
Sporting a huge, billowing afro and a T-shirt with an anti-Iraq war slogan, Erykah Badu expressed her support of black leader Louis Farrakhan and the Palestinian cause Thursday before a crowd of Israeli fans and journalists in Tel Aviv. The Grammy-award winning neo-soul vocalist, 36, is in Tel Aviv to perform on Saturday night. She has also won acclaim for her acting roles in Cider House Rules and House of D. "I come from across the water bringing light and hope," said Badu in her deep, languid voice. She commissioned a poster design especially for her visit to Israel, featuring a large hamsa, a traditional Middle Eastern good luck charm, that appears to be growing out of her hair. At the bottom, the words for peace in Hebrew and Arabic appear side by side.
"They use (hip hop) as a form of liberation, as a form of pre-resistance, as a form of therapy," Badu said. Badu defended Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, who has drawn fire over the years with pronouncements including praise for Hitler in a 1984 speech, for which he was censured by the U.S. Senate, repeatedly denouncing Israel and the Jewish people and calling the pretense for the war in Iraq a Zionist conspiracy. The Anti-Defamation League, a leading Jewish group, has labeled Farrakhan's statements bigoted and anti-Semitic. On its Web site, the ADL lists dozens of Farrakhan statements it considers anti-Semitic. "(Farrakhan is) not an anti-Semite. He loves all people," insisted Badu. Her next album, Nu AmErykah will be released February 26, the date of Savior's Day, a main Nation of Islam holiday.
