The Black President

Now that people are FINALLY coming around on Barack Obama, it's time to nip a future journalistic trope in the bud: he would not be the first black president.

That honor goes to the late Fela Kuti, co-inventor of Afrobeat and all-around kicker of Nigerian military government ass. He's the Black President.

The second Obama releases anything as scorching hot as Zombie or Expensive Shit, then we can talk about maybe sharing the title. Until then, Fela's the president, and Tony Allen is vice. (Vice Black President, or Black Vice President? Hmm.)
