Diddy let's Joe Biden Know the Black Vote Ain't Free
Diddy took to Instagram yesterday to post a video with the caption: “Attention to all … THE BLACK VOTE WILL NOT BE FREE THIS YEAR.”
During a conversation on model Naomi Campbell's live YouTube series No Filter with Naomi on April 23, the mogul spoke candidly on former Vice President Biden earning the Black and Brown vote.
“The Black vote is not gon’ be for free," Puffy began. "We’re gonna have to see some promises. We’re gonna have to understand what kind of deal we’re getting out of—what are we getting in return for our vote? Because nothing has changed in America for Black America. And, in order for us to vote for Biden we can’t be taken for granted like we always are because we’re supposed to be Democrats. Or because people are afraid of Trump."
Mr Biden is all but certain to face Donald Trump during November’s election, after seeing off competition from a field including senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. However, Diddy said black Americans will not automatically vote for the Democratic Party nominee and support will have to be earned.
