Diddy States Obama

Notable rapper P. Diddy states Obama shortchanged black people in his past two terms despite the historical election and black turnout.

Sean “Diddy” Combs gave a brief interview with the Reverend Al Sharpton earlier this week discussing racial concerns. After discussing a few topics, Diddy eventually commented on his opinion of the president.  He remarked “My number one thing, to be honest, is black people — I feel like we put President Obama in the White House. When I look back, I just wanted more done for my people, because that’s the name of the game.”

While Diddy gave President Obama some credit for his efforts, the rapper continued to ask for Obama to “turn up the heat.” Ultimately, he acknowledges the significant impact of the black vote in presidential elections, making the community impact pivotal. Diddy punctuated his comment by adding that “the black vote is going to decide who is the next president of the United States.”

In light of the community, P. Diddy recently opened a charter school in Harlem called Capitol Prep. On August 29, the school officially opened. Diddy then noted the opening on August 20 in an Instagram post reading “Growing up in Harlem I always had a dream of opening a school with a leadership curriculum for our inner city youth. Through the grace of God and the support of the Harlem community my dream came true.”
