As we all know by now, the mere association of young, white females with the Messiah is racist. So what’s going on here?
Joss Stone is set to write and record a campaign song for US Democrat presidential hopeful Barack Obama.
According to The Sun, Stone was asked personally by Obama to write and record the song, which will be the theme song for his election campaign.
Obama is said to favour Stone, a huge star in the USA because she has appeal to both black and white US citizens.
The newspaper quotes an anonymous source as saying: “She [Stone] believes he (Obama) is going to be the first black president and she is honoured to be a part of that.”
First of all, I was surprised to learn that Stone is a “huge star in the USA”, but maybe that’s just me. Second, could Obama not find an American singer? I’ve got nothing against our British friends, but he’s exporting his theme song development while complaining about the exporting of other jobs? Not the greatest photo op there.
