Puff wants Barack to do better...Oh really?

So a Blogger buddy of mine, Miss Kitty Bradshaw posted this link on her twitter feed about something on the Necole Bitchie (smh) blog. Here's the link, and let me quote for you what your boy Puff says:

I love the president like most of us. I just want the president to do better. There’s a difference between us voting for somebody and us believing in somebody. He’s the person that we believed in so I pray night and day that he understands how God ordained his presidency. I feel there was a promise made to God to look after people that was less fortunate, and [many] of those people are African-American…
The President should choose doing the right thing, even if it isn’t easy politically. It’s something he might not get reelected for, but we elected him. He owes us. I’d rather have a black president that was man enough to say that he was doing something for black people have one term than a president who played the politics game have two terms.

So Puff thinks the president needs to focus more on specifically black issues is that it? Because that's sure to go over really well. Honestly, we need to focus on the country's issues, at least thats what I expect the President to do, and I think he has tried. However, there are people called Congressmen and women who actually make the laws and have their own agendas and ability to impede the progress, making it necessary to compromise which means some things aren't going to get done. That's the fact of the matter about politics, you have to cut deals, just like in business.

But how about what Puff himself can do to help better the lives of black people, other than the strippers at King of Diamonds:

along with attending Miami Heat games, and making wack ass songs that are about "getting money", and that lame ass Last Train to Paris he promoted. You see Puff bought all the ads on worldstar to promote that garbage yet where is he promoting some educational foundations? How is that the dude who founded Facebook can donate money to the Newark school system and our hip-hop leaders aren't doing a damn thing. Yes I get very passionate about this because these same characters have so much opportunity yet we get more songs about selling kis, buying bentleys, bugattis, and all sorts of expensive watches without re-investing in the hood to give the youth alternative means to grow and to get said riches.

I was on facebook and I commented on how Dunkin Donuts is never owned by any black families yet I see whole entire crews of Indian/Pakistani folk operating them. I mean Magic had a good idea to start developing urban areas with starbucks and TGIFridays but that idea seems to be dying down. If Puff can start a fashion line that doesn't give very many black people jobs in this country, why can't he get behind a successful urban business to help start a franchise and enable our people to do for ourselves by creating stable urban businesses? Where are the grants for urban development and ideas from these guys? Nope, they would rather just throw a hundred thousand bucks on some strippers so they can go and buy some Louie Bags to put in their rathole apartments and get mad when they get stolen. So here is a big F you to Puffy. And take them damn fronts out of your mouth, you too old for that shit!


  1. I think compromise is the problem with politics in America. Our fathers didn't compromise, they did what was right, even if it meant they didn't get re-elected. Its all marketing now! and I would know its my job, and its harder to market a positive image.

    I think image is the problem with people like Puff, the image of them being able to throw tons of money at strippers is what appeals to people. Not doing that damages the image they have and the money they make. I think to solve this we should start nurturing artists and leaders like Talib, or Lupe, people who want to make a positive difference, where $$ isnt the bottom line.

    I think people's obsession with $$ and strippers, and cars, and grills, is a problem as well. Maybe the ad council will make some ads about that. Like they are doing with Cigs

    My thoughts.

    Keep up the good posts

  2. Yep, he's too damn old for that.

    I'm not even American, and I'm thinkin wtf to "He owes us".

    Eh? Who's "us" he's talkin about, as if he's a spokesman for the black community in the U.S.

    Also, I seem to recall it was Iowa, a 90+% white state, that gave Obama his boost to begin this whole thing. The whole country's dealing with struggles in general.

    Now, if he said he's disappointed with Obama, and how he wishes the president does more for those in need... perfectly fine argument to take.

    This tone, instead, sounds spoilt and demanding. From someone struggling, it's understandable. From a rich person... please

  3. exactly because Puff has the means to help out with that mission if helping the poor do better himself.
