Diddy Believes President Obama Shortchanged Black People
Diddy thinks Obama shortchanged black people during the latter's two terms in the oval office.
In a new MSNBC interview with Al Sharpton, the hip-hop mogul states, "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."
The Bad Boy Records CEO continues, "This is politics. You put somebody in office, you get in return the things that you care about for your communities. I think we got a little bit shortchanged. That's not knocking the President," Diddy said. "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."
Diddy recently opened a charter school in his native Harlem called Capitol Prep. Major props are due to the label head for this inspiring feat. He took to Instagram on Aug. 30 to make the announcement, typing, “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."
