Puff Daddy Says Obama Has “Shortchanged” Blacks


Puff Daddy has thrusted himself into political discussion, after his appearance on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show Politics Nation. During his chat with the Reverend, he spoke about the opening of his new school, Capital Prep Harlem Charter, and how education is the key to lifting otherwise impoverished neighborhoods, placing some blame on politicians for allowing this to constantly happen, namely President Barack Obama¬†for not doing enough.

“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.” Despite those comments, he feels Obama has been a good president, but feels like he could’ve done more. He also feels like the black community shouldn’t be quick to offer up their vote to Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, saying, “Don’t pacify yourself, really revolutionize the game. Make them come for our vote. I honestly think 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.”
