I happen to mention that Kamala Harris is the best-looking attorney general in the country. 2013 White House Correspondents' Dinner Speech by President Barack Obama

It’s true. On April 4, 2013, he stated the following at a Democratic National Committee fundraising lunch in in Atherton, California:

She also happens to be, by far, the best-looking attorney
General … It’s true! C'mon.

The sensationalist media jumped on this story, throwing around buzz words like “sexist”, “bigoted”, and “disgusting” when all he did was complement a woman in public.

"I am Oz, the Great and Terrible," said the little man, in a trembling voice. "But don't strike me--please don't--and I'll do anything you want me to." The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (CHAP. 15) by L. Frank Baum

It turns out that the great and terrible wizard that everyone in the land of Oz holds as their magnificent leader is just a small man hiding behind a curtain.

This lesson of seeing what is behind the curtain can be reflected in our own lives: those people we hold to be great and powerful are also simply human beings who when you pull back the curtain of their past, have shared human experiences of ups and downs just like the rest of us.

And I got my eyes wide open on you quasi-
Haters still smirking like the gators on an Izod
Lacoste,
Bird's Eye View by Statik Selektah (Ft. Black Thought, Joey BADA$$ & Raekwon)

Connecting to the clothing brand Lacoste, crocodiles have the ability to sleep with their eyes open; from 1952-1993, Izod (another clothing brand) and Lacoste were in a partnership… but the crocodile is actually a Lacoste trademark.

Trust me, on my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustlin' Can't Hold Us by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Ray Dalton)

Macklemore’s records have all been released without the assistance of any major labels (that still give favors..) — and this is surprising given the success of hits like “Thrift Shop." As of August 2013 it has officially sold 967,000 copies.

The way he spells out the word “independent” is also a nod to the song “Independent” by Webbie

A good cat ain't supposed to be with a hoodrat Congratulations by Cocaine 80's (Ft. Common)

A couple of things aren’t right about this picture:

  • A cat is typically a rat’s predator.
  • Additionally, some say that a good man shouldn’t be with a hoodrat, because he’s going to end up being the one caught in the trap.

…I guess they’re just breaking stereotypes.
