Because Lupe Fiasco said so.
Perhaps Lupe had a point when he unleashed a Twitter rant in September, decrying voting as a way of supporting institutional oppression. Much of our country's history, after all, involves brutish (though duly elected) war criminals committing heinous atrocities throughout the world for a variety of unsavory reasons. Still, if you were so moved by a rapper's late night Twitter musings that they convinced you to forgo an inalienable right, the rest of us should be worried. Do you also want to be interred inside a booty club? Have an AK-47 in your car and brandish your morbid obesity proudly? Lay desecrated female body parts to rest in a stone coffin? Answers, please.
