Tell Us Something We Don’t Know… Jay-Z Says He’ll Vote For Obama Because He’s Black

Jay-z told reporters he’ll vote for Obama this year because he’s black…
Sorta like last time.

Rapper Jay-Z was invited to the White House in 2010. He took a few pictures from the Situation Room. (Huffington Post)

CBS Local reported:

Jay-Z recently revealed his conservative leanings. While he was promoting the NBA 2K13 game at the 40/40 Club in Manhattan, he offered his philosophy on politics and voiced his support for small government.

While the Brooklyn rapper is a high profile endorser of President Obama, he’s no fan of Washington.

“I don’t even like the word politics,” Jay-Z told MTV News. ”It implies something underhanded and I think we need less government.”

Despite his support for the President, Jay-Z’s “less government” viewpoint is more in line with Obama’s opponents on the right, such as Republican candidate Mitt Romney, who also calls for smaller government. But his stance on smaller government aside, Jay-Z is all in for the president’s re-election.

“I support Barack because I gotta respect that sort of vision. I gotta respect a man who is the first black President ever,” he said. “To have that sort of vision and dream, I have to support that.”

    If this is true, then we have not come very far as a country. If someone votes for anyone because of the color of his/her skin, rather than who is best qualified, the content of their character, than no progress has been made in this country. Very sad.

    If it is racist to vote against someone simply because of their race, isn’t it also racist to vote *for* someone simply because of their race?

    No human rights without religious freedom

    [While the 1948 declaration isn’t legally binding, it represents
    a concrete statement of principles, a clear standard for every
    nation. It’s time that fellow member states hold flagrant
    violators accountable.

    It’s not just about individual freedom. Society’s well-being is
    also at stake. Across the globe, religious freedom is tied to
    robust democracy, diminished violence and greater prosperity
    and stability. Nations that abuse religious liberty often are
    incubators of intolerance, extremism, poverty, insecurity,
    violence and repression.

    In other words, standing for religious freedom is not just
    a legal or moral obligation, but a practical imperative.

    It’s time for members of the General Assembly to take this
    imperative to heart, embracing the 1948 Declaration of
    Human Rights.]

    I’m not shocked. Jay-Z got his start as a drug dealer see he and Bam are on the same page.

  • Jim Scrummy

    So in other words JZ is full of shizzle? Wow, a guy as incompetent as Barky is, and people who did build it (their bidness), such as JZ are still voting for him because he’s black? Boggles the mind.

    #2. These is no question of “if” here. I would venture to say that 80% or more Blacks in America voted for B. Obama because he is black. Many young white Americans also voted for Obama originally just to be a part of making history. I would even say that I can understand, that in their case, being able to elect a Black President did represent how far black people have come in America… BUT voting for him and supporting the man now, is just ignorant. The novelty is gone, like so many jobs. He is a deceiver. HE is destroying this country, and it’s not by accident. Obama is unraveling the fabric that this great country is built on. He has lied to the American people and has placed our citizens in danger, by weakening our country. Are we better off today? That’s gotta be the most ignorant question I’ve ever heard…yet some people are still missing it.

    No, you’ve all got it wrong. Jay-Z really has zero choice as far as whom to support. If he backs Romney he loses his audience/customers.

    But the fact that he made noises about small government shows that he won’t be too upset when Bambi loses.

    my bottom line:

    the who, what, where, when, why, or how of Obama is totally
    irrelevant, what is extremely relevant is what this person has
    done, is still doing, and will continue to do to America, period..


  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Jay-z told reporters he’ll vote for Obama this year because he’s black…

    It’s also easier – it requires no effort from his already-overworked little brain to consider the pros and cons of each candidate and decide which one would be best for the country.

  • john

    I’m voting for R/R because they’re not black. Oops, guess I’m a racist now.

  • hermie

    Which is why cities like Detroit, Gary, etc continued to retain corrupt or incompetent mayors. The voters couldn’t bear to vote for someone who didn’t ‘look like them’. The results are obvious for anyone to see except those who can’t look past color.

  • GotFreedom

    Then Jay Z is a racists. . .because he’s not voting for Mitt Romney because he’s white!

    America, are you sick and tired of these double standards? It’s okay for celebs to support BHO because he’s black (and half white, don’t forget), and yet, when we rightfully and with facts dispute BHO’s policies, we are called racists!

    And the worst part of all of this is there are stupid people out there who will listen to the likes of JayZ before they’d even consider doing some research on their own to find out the truth about the most corrupt/lying administration in the history of our country (Nixon looks like a saint compared to the current WH occupant!)

    US Taxpayers Spent an Enormous $1.4
    billion on the Obama Family Last Year

    [In comparison, British taxpayers spent
    just $57.8 million on the royal family.]

    Obama’s Latest GDP Numbers: “Depressingly Weak”

    [New durable goods orders in August fell by the most since the recession and a separate reading on the broader U.S. economy came in much weaker than expected. But weekly jobless claims sank to a two-month low, in a hopeful sign for the labor market.

    New orders for long-lasting U.S. manufactured goods in August fell by the most in 3 1/2 years, pointing to a sharp slowdown in factory activity even as a gauge of planned business spending rebounded.

    The Commerce Department said on Thursday durable goods orders dived 13.2 percent, the largest drop since January 2009, when the economy was in the throes of a recession. Orders for July were revised down to show a 3.3 percent increase instead of the previously reported 4.1 percent gain.

    Economists polled by Reuters had expected orders for durable goods — items from toasters to aircraft that are meant to last at least three years — to fall 5 percent.]

    There is no more perfect example of intellectual sloth than someone who says “I’m just going to vote for someone because they’re black.”

    MLK would be so proud to know that he died so black people could cast their votes based on color rather than character.

  • Joanne

    It just goes to show the complete LACK of conscience or intelligence in a huge segment of America (entertainment segment). He SAYS he’s for smaller government and has ‘conservative leanings’ yet he’s going to vote for Obama again… BECAUSE OF HIS COLOR.


    That’s all….. he’s a moron, nothing else to see here.

    But you’d support him whatever he stood for, because of his skin color — and that’s RACISM.

    “I have a dream that my four little children will one day
    live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color
    of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

    ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

    On Romney’s character..

    Sometimes, this facet of Romney’s personality isn’t so subtle. In July 1996, the 14-year-old daughter of Robert Gay, a partner at Bain Capital, had disappeared. She had attended a rave party in New York City and gotten high on ecstasy. Three days later, her distraught father had no idea where she was. Romney took immediate action. He closed down the entire firm and asked all 30 partners and employees to fly to New York to help find Gay’s daughter. Romney set up a command center at the LaGuardia Marriott and hired a private detective firm to assist with the search. He established a toll-free number for tips, coordinating the effort with the NYPD, and went through his Rolodex and called everyone Bain did business with in New York, and asked them to help find his friend’s missing daughter. Romney’s accountants at Price Waterhouse Cooper put up posters on street poles, while cashiers at a pharmacy owned by Bain put fliers in the bag of every shopper. Romney and the other Bain employees scoured every part of New York and talked with everyone they could – prostitutes, drug addicts – anyone.

    That day, their hunt made the evening news, which featured photos of the girl and the Bain employees searching for her. As a result, a teenage boy phoned in, asked if there was a reward, and then hung up abruptly. The NYPD traced the call to a home in New Jersey, where they found the girl in the basement, shivering and experiencing withdrawal symptoms from a massive ecstasy dose. Doctors later said the girl might not have survived another day. Romney’s former partner credits Mitt Romney with saving his daughter’s life, saying, “It was the most amazing thing, and I’ll never forget this to the day I die.”

    So, here’s my epiphany: Mitt Romney simply can’t help himself. He sees a problem, and his mind immediately sets to work solving it, sometimes consciously, and sometimes not-so-consciously. He doesn’t do it for self-aggrandizement, or for personal gain. He does it because that’s just how he’s wired.

    Many people are unaware of the fact that when Romney was asked by his old employer, Bill Bain, to come back to Bain & Company as CEO to rescue the firm from bankruptcy, Romney left Bain Capital to work at Bain & Company for an annual salary of one dollar. When Romney went to the rescue of the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics, he accepted no salary for three years, and wouldn’t use an expense account. He also accepted no salary as Governor of Massachusetts.

    Character counts!! (and yes…that’s worth reading again!)

    .. this account comports with the known facts.]

    98% of blacks voted for LUITPOS in ’08. That tells you everything. I asked every black person I knew (which is quite a few) to verify that was the case. However, every one of them said it was because he was black! 100%!

    When I put them to task for voting LUITPOS, each told me that it doesn’t matter who is President; that they’re all bad, so it might as well be a black guy.

    The fact is our government has been taken over by traitors & our votes don’t really matter. Bush, Sr/Clinton/Bush, Jr/LUITPOS, all are puppets. But for the life of me, at least the other puppets PRETEND to like America. LUITPOS is pure evil from the pit of hell. Now, I can only surmise that those voting for him aren’t stupid (but there are a few); they just don’t give a crap. And that my friends is where we’re at. 50% of Americans don’t give a crap what happens. After this election, I may just join them.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque
