Jay-Z Song Reference Mistaken By Geraldine Ferraro As “Sexist”

by West ·

A day after saying she wouldn’t vote for Barack Obama if he becomes the Democratic nominee, Geraldine Ferraro (a Democrat ) criticized him for what she thought was a sexist gesture, which in actuality was a cultural reference to a Jay-Z song.

Months ago, when Hillary Clinton threw every dirty political trick at Obama, he delivered a speech where he calmly brushed “the dirt” off his shoulder as a reference to Jay-Z’s massive hit “Dirt Off Your Shoulder.”

Ferraro, seemingly out of touch with modern-day music, criticized this cultural reference as a diss to all women.

“And when something else was said about the campaign, this thing, flicking it off, diminishing her,” she complained. “Sorry. That’s not done. Women don’t like that.”
