Sudanese hip hop in Cairo

A young Sudanese rap group called Blackshine. Here a couple of their members pose for a photo after a performance backstage.

It shocked me to see these young Sudanese rappers performing in their Obama t-shirts (the group is about four or five members, some not pictured). What does Obama mean for Sudan or Egypt or anywhere else? Do people really know? I don’t really know, but I am pessimistic that there will be a┬ánoticeable┬áchange around the world when Bush hands over the keys to the White House to Obama next month. What people everywhere do seem to understand is that what the US does affects everywhere in our world, and it is certainly nice to see Bush replaced by a man with a history much different than his predecessors.
