Lupe Fiasco Blasts U.S. Education System In Speech For High School Graduates

Trevor Smith:

Lupe Fiasco is known for his outspoken political attitude. The rapper has been known to rant about his views, and most recently wrote for Kanye West’s racially charged track “Black Skinhead”. Fiasco got a chance to speak to some recent graduates this weekend at the 2013 Mass Black Male Graduation And Transition To Manhood Ceremony, where he was able to speak about his issues with the American education system.
Lupe began his speech with a critique of the U.S. school system. “Congratulations, you have graduated from one of the most terrible, substandard school systems in the entire world. You have just spent the last…12 years receiving one of the worst educations on earth. You are at least four, five steps behind people in other countries that are younger than you,” he declared.
