The Liberalism vs Centrism Election Thread For 4/20/16: No, Bernie Didn't Diss The South

Image
With each passing day now in this unexpectedly engaging primary season on the Democratic side, someone on the “centrist left” will find a novel, silly thing to be angry at Bernie Sanders or his supporters with. And one that has now come fully to the surface has been the painting by a constant set of black journalist Sanders critics of the Vermont Senator being a regional elitist and, worse, a passive racist for saying why he felt Hillary Clinton dominated him in Southern states in the Democratic presidential primary.
Although this latest over outrage has flamed up over the last week, this whole incongruous narrative of claiming Sanders is disrespecting the South actually started way back on the night he was trounced in the South Carolina primary in February.

With Nelly emerging at the same time, it was the right combination for a hit that still goes strong in 2016. So, your first Flashback Friday of the day, it's Jagged Edge feat Nelly with "Where The Party At?"

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 4/8/16: Sean Paul - Temperature (2006)

Image
Another Friday brings us back to a decade ago at this time to another flashback, when Sean Paul was at the pinnacle of his career. "Temperature" became his biggest single to date and was the full culmination of four fine years of rising for the reggae master. Since then, Paul hasn't come close to reaching those heights. But now in his new period of being an independent artist, he still is loving his career and is in a good financial place. 
With all that said, here's "Temperature," the #1 hit on the charts from the Kingston sir from 2006, your first Flashback Friday choice of the week.  

This is The Whole Delivery.

Image
A song fitting for this April Fool's Day that is specifically on a Friday, since it rarely happens, is this legendary horrible classic that will remain with us forever. 5 years ago, one Rebecca Black both blessed and cursed us all with a song now approaching 100 million Youtube views.

Our Fridays have never been the same since "Friday" dropped. And it is, fittingly, your April Fools Flashback Friday choice, since its foolishness represents this whole day.
