The petition demands that the television company discontinue attacking black Americans, specifically Senator and Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, via its news programs.
Over the last month, Color Of Change and Move On have collected more than 600,000 signatures via colorofchange.org. Drawing ammunition from incidents like Fox News referring to Mrs. Obama as a "baby mama," both organizations, along with Nas, will deliver the petition at 2 p.m. tomorrow.
Nas released his controversial untitled album on July 15, which boasts the track, "Sly Fox." On the song, Nas says that the cable channel twists news regarding the black and brown communities into negative stereotypes.
