Despite being involved with a now infamous “Vote Or Die” campaign in 2008, Diddy's recent comments on Hot 97 reflect a disturbing lack of political and civic acumen. According to BizPac Review:
“‘The hugest group of people that get you into office, you have to change their lives for the better. Pick a side, because they got you into office. And if that side just happens to be black people, and you’re black, you still have to do what’s fair,' he said, adding that the National Rifle Association, American Association of Retired Persons and ‘Jewish people' lobby to get what they want.
‘Black people and people of color are the strongest and we let it go down,' he said.”
Putting aside the unsettling reference to a “Jewish people” lobby, let's take a long hard look at what Diddy is proposing. BizPac Review continues:
“No, no, no, no but it’s like direct aid. Unapologetically sending direct aid to black communities. Like, like let’s not try to hide it. Unapologetically spend billions of dollars to uplift black communities and say black people,' he said. ‘Let’s stop skirting around everything it is.'”
And who, may I ask, is paying for all this, Mr. Puff? Perhaps you, with your vast wealth, would be able to contribute to this worthy cause you clearly care so deeply about!
