    It isn’t much of an anti-Obama rant. In it, Diddy says:

    That’s not knocking the president. …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, no he hasn’t. Obama’s been one of the all-time worst POTUS’ in U.S. history.

    But his Hillary comment is interesting:

    “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. 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 any of them.”​

    FYI: I like Diddy, I bet you I could rap more Diddy lyrics than anyone here (among numerous other artists).

    It does bring to light the fact that the Dems have taken votes for granted. Travis Smiley has talked about this as well.

    Given all this attention, there should at least be some pressure to change things. The catch is that the policies of the Dems won't work. So if Hillary gets in, her policies won't fix things. Soon it'll be too late to make changes as the economic bar will continue to go up, leaving more and more people behind. The Dems will simply blame others for their failed policies.

    Interesting, but many refer to the "black vote" as if every single black person votes that same way. Anyone that breaks stride, gets called names.

    Blacks won't vote for a racist candidate.

    If you care about blacks having more influence then you need a serious alternative candidate who isn't racist.

    Hillary is fake, she doesn't give a dam about anyone. All she does is pander. It's amazing that people don't push back against her.

    Blacks should vote their own self interest, they don't. That's the problem, they buy into the "look he/she is just like us" and cast their vote. They are nothing like black people. They don't live in their areas, they don't struggle with day to day issues like having to get jobs. They're all about having power and selling access to the power they gain.

    There's only one person that knows how Trump feels inside. I've worked for a racist, he hired a few blacks over time, but never for long. He talked racists and didn't have a problem with it.

    Hillary could be racist as well, only she knows what's inside her head.

    This was one of the point of the book "one day in the live of Ivan Denisovich", Stalin could have done anything to him, except change his mind. It's an important part of humans, they can have one thing in their mind and tell you another.

    The real issue should be who's going to fix things.

    At this point, I almost want Hillary to win because I want her to choke on the socialist economy Obama created. Let the socialist destroy things until the people see the results of their failed policies.

    Hillary can't make ObamaCare work, nobody can. You can't fill a bottomless bucket, no matter how hard you try. That's the point, they won't ever stop trying to fill the bottomless bucket.

    We all have to sit here with these suck policies waiting for the people to realize that these policies don't work.

    How do you know Hillary isn't racist? That's a statement that can NEVER be proven, only Hillary knows if she's racist. She can (and does) lie. How do you know when she's lying and when she's telling the truth.

    She changed he stance on same sex marriage, how do you know she didn't do that for votes? She is nothing but a power broker, she's become SUPER rich getting and selling power. There is no way for anyone to ever know if she's racist or not. If you don't understand that, you don't understand humans, they can lie, she lies a lot.

    You don't, that's the point. Anyone can lie. BTW, I don't think Mitch is a power broker, maybe I'm wrong but I don't think he has a Mitch Family Foundation.

    Is that because the Democrats are known for compromising and caving too much? It's been asked for years

    Yes Indeed.

    It's surprising that Diddy broke rank and spoke the truth. If not for his extreme wealth insulating him from damaging pushback, he wouldn't have been so candid.

    The Dems have mastered the art of finger pointing. A reactionary bunch, they love how slippery and wicked Hillary Clinton is.

    Democrats have done nothing for blacks except forced them to become dependent on government to survive. That's why there is such a high percentage of blacks as single mothers, incarcerated, lacking education, or unemployed.

    Does any other minority group have these issues in remotely a close manner? Arabs? Nope. Indians? Nope. Asians? Nope.

    HMMMMMMMMMMM

    There is such a high percentage because a high percentage make really bad life choices!!! Some of us are veterans, have good jobs, are widowed/ers and are sick of being lumped in with idiots who chose badly!

    Your opinion, but let's call you out. Source the bold and underlined, please.

    Economy has drastically improved over the past 8 years.
    Unemployment cut in half.
    OBL dead.
    My wife has healthcare without being denied from a pre-existing condition.

    So again, source your assertion that he has been one of the worst, when there are a number of indicators to the complete opposite.

    Trump isn't any more racist than Clinton.
