The Obama Shirt Spike Lee Was Wearing at the DNC on MSNBC Last Night: Obama Dunking on McCain

I love this shirt!!! (If you’re in Denver, you can get the shirt at THE 400) Obama for 2…no Obama for it all. He shoots he scores. In your FACE, McCAIN!!! Slam Dunk!! I’ts called the O-Face T-Shirt and I’m buying one online TODAY. Spike so looked like the black radical we love wearing that shirt. He said he bought the tee in Denver and had to walk 5 miles to get it once he saw it. Now that Spike Lee has worn this UNDRCRWN shirt it on national TV, it’s going to be sported all over (and most likely bootlegged and copied).

Here’s the video of Spike Lee on MSNBC

From hypebeast.com: “UNDRCRWN are the latest to pay homage as the basketball inspired label takes an unforgettable moment in basketball history and makes it distinctly Obama. Teaming up with Karmaloop and Denver retailer The 400, this t-shirt will be presented at this year’s Democratic National Convention in Denver. The inspiration if not immediately evident is based on Vince Carter’s spectacular Dunk over 7 foot something Frenchman Weiss back in 2000. The t-shirt’s sale will benefit local charities looking to improve inner city youth participation in sports.”

In 1492 you came upon these shores.
Seven hundred years, educated by the moors;
17th Century– genocide and the gun
Middle Passage blessed to market the Africans.

In the so-called ““Land of God””
My kind were treated hard.
From back then until now
I see, and you agree–
We have been a misrepresented people. Continue reading
