Another Caribbean musician “endorses” Obama

This is definitely a trend now, for Caribbean musicians to sing their praises of Barack Obama. For example, see this previous post on this blog, as well the one previous to that.

The latest entry is from King Short Shirt (Stanley Humphreys) titled simply, “Barack We Love You.” (I have to be frank, this is not my favourite.) One has to wonder if to some extent Caribbean artists are giving up on political transformation within their own countries, thanks to local efforts and agents, and opting instead for “help” and inspiration to come from outside. I don’t believe Obama has made any statements about the Caribbean in particular, and I am not sure if he is even aware of the songs that are being produced for him.
