VIDEO VIRUS: ‘I’m Caucasian’ NBA Parody Of Kanye West’s ‘Amazing’

A parody of Kanye West's song "Amazing" created by Kno of CunninLynguists is serving as a hilarious musical tribute to the shortcomings of caucasian NBA players and gaining popularity online. Of course the song is filled with stereotypes, and sure it's offensive, but it's funny as hell! And for those who don't agree, the video creator has this message: "I reserve my right, as a white guy cut from the JV team in 10th grade, to indulge in self-parody. Sensitive people, save your energy and faux-disgust for something that really matters, kthnx. Those of you without a stick up your ass, enjoy!" Here are just a few snippets of the lyrics: I'm caucasian It's the reason Michael Jordan's hittin' 40 this evenin' I'm exhausted, barely breathing I been sittin on the bench all season And no matter what they'll never pass it to me My range is as far as my arms can reach Im caucasian / White like salt packs If I ain't translucent / What you call that? I'm notorious / spin move laborious Lucky if I get minutes with the Warriors I like mayonnaise, I like sodium We prolly lost if you see me at the podium I'm caucasian So caucasian

The Obamas’ New York Date Night: Dinner And A Broadway Show

barack_michelle_oabama_new_york_date President Barack Obama made good on a campaign promise to wife Michelle and treated her to dinner and a Broadway show in New York City on Saturday. The first couple arrived in Manhattan on a Marine One helicopter after flying into JFK airport aboard a Gulfstream 500 jet. They dined at the Greenwich Villge restaurant Blue Hill and took in the revival of August Wilson's "Joe Turner's Come Home" at the Belasco Theatre in midtown. Crowds lined the streets, cheering and waving, as the presidential motorcade made its way through the streets. Always one to find fault with the Obama administration, the Republic National Committee crticized the President for jetting to New York for what they deemed as "a night on the town" during a recession and as General Motors prepares to file for bankruptcy -the fourth largest in U.S. history. The Obamas paid for dinner and theatre tickets themselves while taxpayers will foot the bill for the plane ride, estimated by The New York Post at $24,000 per aircraft (3 were required for the trip), and for police security.
