Jay-Z on Gay Marriage

I just saw this on my Facebook timeline

 

 

There's some talk online about Jay-Z's endorsement being more powerful than Obama's. I don't really think that's terribly useful. These are two of the most culturally important black men in the world.  I guess I'd like to think of their endorsements as a one-two punch, rather than quibble about who will make the most individual impact.

That said, I'm struck by the simplicity and the almost nonchalance of Jigga here. Even though I know that's pretty much Shawn Carter's demeanor whenever he talks.

Fuller thoughts to come…
