In a shocking turn of events, widespread support for Obama was found at the Black Entertainment TV awards.



Barack Obama didn't attend the BET Awards, but that didn't stop attendees from talking about him.

"If we all register and vote, we will have the first black president in the history of America," Sean "Diddy" Combs told the crowd Tuesday at the Shrine Auditorium before chanting "Obama or Die" - a declarative remix of his neutral "Vote or Die" motto from the 2004 presidential election, when he attempted to boost the youth vote.


Yes, a few of the rocket scientist attendees think not voting for Obama will result in death.

Considering he has overwhelming support from blacks, any cries of racism for people who don't vote for him better not be heard.

Black Entertainment Television. That is exactly why they are putting out the hype of voting for him. You won't see them supporting McCain because he is white. Big surprise.

Or they are reciting a slightly different version of Sean 'Diddy' Combs' "Vote or Die" campaign from the last election.

Just nipping that incredibly ridiculous statement in the butt.

Hmm, strange. I wonder if there is any correlation with this and the fact that McCain has now tied Obama in the national Gallup poll? This is all going to end very badly. I personally am taking off from work when the elections take place. It will be quite a sight to watch the nation burn if he wins or losses.

Shocking indeed! And who will you vote for my presumably pasty white friend?
Or are we still waiting to see who Dale Jr. endorses?
You know, I heard Hillary was courting the "woman" vote during the primaries. I'm assuming you were appropriately shocked at that turn of events as well.
Am I to deduce that you have a problem with african americans hoping to have a black president.
I couldn't find in your OP what your precise point was. Can't wait to hear it, but no so much.

I agree. What was the point of this and to put shocking in the title is just misleading. If a white conservative group said on Great American Country to vote for McCain, we wouldn't be having this discussion. Sean Combs supported Obama on an Awards show, what is so shocking about that.

does this surprise anyone... the US presidential elections aren't about real policies its a popularity contest... mindless voters should be discouraged

I may be way off point here, but I believe the OP's intention was one of sarcasm.

I can only assume the OP would know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Obama would have overwhelming support within the BET community, and was thus making a sarcastic reference.

Then again....I could be way off....

LOL if you people think this is anything other than a sound byte, wow.. Honestly, who the hell watches BET other than people who don't vote in the first place.

lol "BET community" riiiight

"Considering he has overwhelming support from blacks, any cries of racism for people who don't vote for him better not be heard."

Because look at the other candidate. Hillary would have "overwhelming" support from Blacks too. If anyone is trying to turn this into a racial thing its some of you white people.

I don't really want to get in on this thread, it just stinks of race baiting, I will answer one thing you said.

If Hillary and Obama are basically the same, (and they are) then why did Obama get over 90% of the black democratic vote? Is it because the real reason that they picked him is because HE is black? And Obama brought race into this campaign before anybody, by insinuating that he thought people wouldn't vote for him due to long held racist views. Look it up, he started this long ago to be able to call all non-Obama fans racists. The ultimate white guilt, Harvard learned.

Don't assume that one group is something, when all evidence supports that the real racists are on the other side...

Sorry I like obama but I think the comment made by p.diddy is just stupid. Especially the whole BET television thing. That show really has issues and has caused some problems with society.

I'm really tired of people not seeing the bigger picture other than him being black though. He is half white if you want to know also.

Well, one can insinuate that "Obama get over 90% of the black democratic vote"
because of his being black. But that doesn't say anything about his white supporters. Maybe.. just maybe he had 90% because the majority felt he was the better candidate? I'm not gonna say that SOME people didn't vote for him based solely on his race (because of course some did). And while he may have brought up that point, judging by the posts on this forum lately he wasn't far off. Hundreds of people saying things like this that I read earlier today:

"mccain is going to win,so vote obama all u want,a black man will never rule the freeworld,even if i knew he would be a better president than mccain,even if my life would be better under obama i would still vote mccain,and im not alone,so # u"

Kinda gives an impression right?

And I did say some whites too. Lets face facts, there are racists on both sides of the issue.

Okay. Please paste a link to that quote, or at least one nearly articulate version of that one. I will gladly post my thread about how even some black republicans feel that they have an "obligation" to vote for a viable black candidate. www.usatoday.com...

And no, I don't see any real policy difference between Clinton or Obama.

And you still haven't addressed my point about Obama being the person who brought this issue up in the first place. Again, cite me some quotes from this site that you say are listed by "the Hundreds" -Jason

I already said that some black voters felt that way. And here's where I read that quote from someone.

www.youtube.com...

You don't but I'm sure a lot of people do.

I never said from ATS, although you can look on these 3 threads:

There will be riots!

Here Come the Black Haters?

Yes I Only Like Obama Cuz He's Black - What's Wrong With That

And I did address the issue when I said that he did bring it up. But I also said that there is some truth behind what he said. Do you not believe that some people will not vote for him because of his skin color?

Thats funny. Two of those threads are from Obama supporters. They actually call people racist before anyone does anything at all. You only used threads that I would have cited to support my claim. 90% of black americans, those who sided with Male Clinton and called him the first black president, now find the rookie senator with zero experience and the same policies as Female Clinton, 90% favored?

Stop it. Stop trying to mask your glee at being able to lump all Obama haters as Black haters based on the illogical thought process of a few inbred idiots.


And while he may have brought up that point, judging by the posts on this forum lately he wasn't far off. Hundreds of people saying things like this that I read earlier today:


Your words by the way. You DID say that it was on this site that there were "hundreds" of people who felt and wrote that way. and then provided baiting threads by pro-Obama people as "proof"....

awwwww most people are stupid, the wrong Black guy is running and Black Americans want a Black president and don't care... he is not much of a patriot this guy, Powell was and he said "I'll be shot" if I run, so of course we get a guy willing who is associated with and in the end kind of a radical...

It would be nice to see a different Black guy up there, someone more of an American... frankly I think Obama is in touch only with a 10% segment of Black radical thought, very socialist and not very in tune with the needs of Black or White Americans

Lol, like all the Africa and Mideast stuff, Black Americans aren't very well liked by africans... it's like a White president bantering to Kazakhstan lol... let's give 10% of our money to Kazakhstan because they are white and poor...

I think Black Americans are so anxious for anyone to represent them they are making a bad choice but lol... sort of like how Bush got into office?

I often think that the movie starship troopers had the vote thing right... a right anyone could have, but not unless you earned it somehow, too many dummies vote of all races and colors and yada yada... for all the wrong reasons...

The affirmative action network backs the affirmative action Presidential wannabe, no surprise here.

Honestly, if the cable company told you to pick your top 100 channels how many would pick BET? Yet every cable company carries it?

Well then it just goes hand in hand with all the other stupid comments he has made and continues to make lol
Really now, why anybody would actually look to him for any kind of political advice or take him seriously is beyond me. Same goes for the BET awards and it's target audience. Please.

It's all too apparent now that people who have issues with this man only do with his black heritage, not his white one nahsik - which I find so very unnerving - and that has been made so very clear on this site too unfortunately. I rarely chime in on this nonsense but this is just getting ridiculous.

Spines hit the nail on the head. That is all this is.
