Rapper, music mogul, actor, entertainer, and activist Sean “Diddy” Combs (formerly Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Puffy) joined Al Sharpton on MSNBC to discuss the current race for the White House. He and Sharpton focused particularly on Hillary Clinton’s connection to the African-American and the way that the Democrat Party seems to have taken their community for granted.
In fact, Combs was so frustrated with the Democrat Party, President Obama, and Hillary Clinton that he argued that black voters should withhold their vote until the Democrat Party comes to get it.
“My number one thing, to be honest, is black people. I feel like we put President Obama in the White House and when I look back I just wanted more done for my people because that is the name of the game, it’s politics. Put somebody in office. You get in return things that you care about for your communities.
I think we got a little shortchanged and that’s not knocking the president. There is a lot going on. He’s done an excellent job, 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.
Hillary Clinton, you know, I hope she starts to directly talk to the black community. It really makes me feel almost hurt that our issues are not addressed and we’re such a big part of the voting bloc.
I honestly thing that the heat has to be turned up so much that as a community we got to hold our vote. Don’t pacify yourself, 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 in any of them.”
