School display: ‘Obama ran … so our children could fly’

A Black History Month display at a Georgia elementary school last week held up President Barack Obama as a hero in the same vein as Dr. Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks.

The display appeared to feature lyrics from a rap song by artist Young Jeezy called “My President is Black.” Livsey Elementary School slightly altered the lyrics for use in its display. They read:

“Rosa sat … so Martin could walk.
Martin walked … so Obama could run.
Obama ran … so our children could fly.”

The rest of the song — which was not used — contains suggestive and racially-tinged imagery:

“Hello Miss America
Hey pretty lady
Red white and blue flag
Wave for me baby
Never thought I’d say this shit
Baby I’m good
You can keep ya puss
I don’t want no more Bush
No more war
No more Iraq
No more white lies
The President is black”

The College Fix described the display as “Obama propaganda aimed at elementary students.”

The school did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
