i remember when barack obama was voted into the white house.
the first time.
i remember seeing all my people jumping for joy,
and recording themselves losing their minds.
i was moved to the point of tears.
well it seems those opinions may have changed in 2016 now he is leaving.
many of those same animals views are now:
“obama ain’t did shit for us”
even mr “vote or die”,
he flat out said obama shortchanged us.
this is what he said via hiphop dx…
Sean “Diddy” Combs has had his hand in politics for a number of years, most notably dating back to his vigilance for the Rock the Vote campaign during the 2004 presidential election, where he interviewed a relatively unknown Illinois Senator who would go to make history inside the White House.
However, more than a decade later, the 46-year-old music mogul’s opinion on President Obama’s tenure as commander-in-chief isn’t exactly dipped in bronze. While speaking to Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s Politics Nation earlier today, he expressed how he felt the black community didn’t get all they hoped for during the election years.
“My number one thing, though, to be honest, is black people,” Diddy admitted, who had originally joined the segment discussing his new Harlem charter school before the topic switched to the upcoming presidential election. “I feel like we put President Obama in the White House. When I look back, I just wanted more done for my people because that’s the name of the game. This is politics. You put somebody in office you get in return the things that you care about for your communities.”
“I think we got a little bit shortchanged,” he continued. “That’s not knocking the President. There’s a lot going on — a lot of balls for him to juggle — he’s done an excellent job, you know, but I think it’s time to turn up the heat because the black vote is going to decide who is the next president of the United States.”
yeah he went there.
i can say i agree with him to an extent.
now he did do a lot for gay marriage.
other than that,
i don’t really know what obama has done except “obama care”,
which is a disaster all in it’s own.
we also made him this celebrity,
and transsexual rights activist.
i think the issue is we all thought he was gonna be this “black president”.
he was going to be the black savior and…
now that obama is headed out,
we now have the worst two competing for their seat in the white house.
diddy addressed his opinion on that as well:
While it was quite explicit that Diddy doesn’t plan on voting for Donald Trump this November, he’s not all that enthused with Hillary Clinton, who has been frequently accused of“pandering” to black people’s interests, just to obtain their vote.
“Ms. Clinton … Hillary Clinton, you know, I hope she starts to directly talk to the black community. … It really makes me feel, you know, almost … hurt that our issues are not addressed and we’re such a big part of the voting [bloc],” he said.
“I honestly think he heat has to be turned up so much that as a community, we got to holdour vote,” he added. “Really revolutionize the game. Make them come for our vote. It’s a whole different strategy but I think we need to hold our vote because I don’t believe any of [the candidates].”
i’ll be honest foxhole,
this upcoming election sounds like doomsday.
i’m so disappointed in our options this era.
i don’t even know who is worse.
they both seem like it.
so i’ll the foxhole…
Do you agree with Diddy’s views on Obama and this latest election?
…and don’t say “moving to canada” either.
