Doesn't everybody to a point.  In this political season it's the norm.
Actually  Jazz quit being the exclusive property of black people the minute
it was recorded and sold.  Once you've sold it (an idea) it's not yours
anymore.  I don't think that it serves us well no matter who it comes from
to believe that this idiom is the property of anyone any longer.

Truthfully I thought that with Rap, black people had finally come up with an
idiom that white people wouldn't touch .  Even that isn't true.  Money
talks.  If you can turn a buck on it there will be those who imitate and
improve (or not in this case).
