UPDATE: Nas Delivers Racial Smear Petition to FOX News

Shortly after his new album became No. 1 in the country, Nas protested at Fox News headquarters in New York over what he (and ColorOfChange & MoveOn.org) says is racial smear tactics against African Americans and Barack Obama.

“Fox poisons this country every time they air racist propaganda and try to call it news,” Nas says. “This should outrage every American that Fox uses hateful language to talk about the person that may be the first black president.”

Although ColorOfChange collected more than 600,000 signatures demanding that network president Roger Ailes “find a solution to address racial stereotyping and hate-mongering before it hits the airwaves,” Fox rejected the petitions.
