Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, better known as Lupe Fiasco said this: You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.
The rapper also just vented his oversized spleen at the StartUp RockOn event at Hamilton Live last night, during a pre-inauguration concert. Easy there, Mr. Fiasco. It is a chicken and egg argument. Do we, as a country, inspire terrorism? Or do the terrorists, with their continual violence, spur our response? And if we stopped operations, would they also agree to stop theirs? I think a stalemate is the best solution. It (the conflict) will never end, baring something amazing.
Lupe was eventually thrown off-stage last night and escorted by guards off the premises of the Washington, D.C. concert hall. Do go read what the event organizers said about this little Lupe Fiasco incident. It had nothing to do with his views, sure. What a Fiasco. Of course, if my name was Mo Jaco, I would probably change it too.
