    Nas partnered with grassroots organizations and to put an end to what they call Fox's "racist propaganda."

    "I'm here today to stand with the," Nas said as he read from a prepared speech. "Over 600,000 people of every color across the country are demanding that Fox stop their racist attacks on the Obama family and on black America."

    "We already know that Fox is not a news network," he continued. "They are a propaganda machine but their racist attacks have gone way too far. Calling Michele Obama ‘Barack's baby momma?' Tell me is that acceptable to you? Is that racist?" he asked the crowd.

    Nas also referenced the network's portrayal of the fist bump that Barack and Michelle Obama shared as a "terrorist fist jab" and Fox anchor Bill O'Reilly's call for a "lynching party" for the woman who may become First Lady.

    "Fox poisons this country every time they air racist propaganda and try to call it news," said the Queensbridge rapper. "This should outrage every American that Fox uses hateful language to talk about the person who may be the first black president."

    According to Nas the Obamas aren't the only victims of Fox News. He also blames the network for attacking, black leaders, black institutions, ordinary black people and of course hip-hop artists.

    "It's offensive to black Americans," he said. "It's offensive to all Americans. That's why I wrote on my new album a song called, ‘Sly Fox,'" he said before reciting a few lines from the song.

    "Watch what you watchin'/ Fox keeps feeding us toxins/ stop sleepin'/ start thinkin'."
