    'With friends like you, Obama doesn't need enemies.' ​

    Ludacris you are a 3 time Grammy Award winning artist. No one can dispute that you are one of the leading rappers in the industry.
    You have the first amendment rights to choose to record music of your own choosing. But I feel that the recent release of your song attacking Senators Clintons and McCain, as well and Jesse Jackson only hurts Senator Obama who you've stated is a friend and he has your support.

    But with friends like you Obama doesn't need enemies. ​

    Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Phlegher, Jesse Jackson and now you have all made public statements during this historic election that were an unnecessary distraction and harmed Obama causing him to respond. If you were really his friend you would realize that maybe you should just shut up. This is a close race and there are many Americans who are undecided and looking for an excuse not to vote for a Black man and then you have the audacity to call Sen. Hillary Clinton an "irrelevant *****?!"

    I can envision the McCain and Republican attack ads now with pictures of you and Obama; exploiting your comments and letting white America know that Obama has the support of rappers like you who call white women *******. Our organization, Project Islamic Hope, has a long track record and history of condemning not just you, but all gangster rappers who disparage women and glorify violence. And we are not ever backing down from our position

    Ludacris, we're calling for you to apologize to those that you disparaged in your song with a special emphasis in regard to Sen. Clinton who you called an "irrelevant *****." Sen. Clinton is a former first lady, wife, mother and woman. I'm sure when you see Michelle Obama, you don't envision her in that manner and would never call her that. No woman deserves to be called that term.

    Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly has previously taken you task; denouncing you over your controversial lyrics. His public pressure cost you a significant sponsorship with the Pepsi Corporation. Oprah Winfrey took you to task for the misogynist role you have in rap when you appeared on her show a couple of years ago. And now Obama has personally denounced you. I doubt very seriously whether you will be on his guest list for the inauguration. When are you going to realize that yes you're rich but not respected and that you have become your own worst enemy?

    I support Obama with all my heart and want him to win. If you truly feel the same way then maybe you could humble yourself and apologize. If not, can you and any other Obama friends out there just shut up until after the election, because if Obama has any more friends like you he doesn't need enemies.

    Najee Ali, Executive director Project Islamic HOPE

    Obama's response: Who is Ludacris?

    Of course he going to denounce what he said. Stuff like this makes people mad as they feel they messing up his campaign.
