Diddy is declaring a new political party for Black people.
On Friday (Oct. 16), Diddy announced his plans to launch an Afrocentric political party. In a tweet shared by the 50-year-old hip-hop mogul, Diddy announced his new political venture called Our Black Party.
“So, I’m launching one of the boldest things I’ve ever launched,” Puffy started. “I’m launching a Black political party with some young Black elected officials and activists. It’s called @OurBlackParty, it doesn’t matter if you are Republican or Democrat…”
According to the Our Black Party website, Black people have a right to own their politics, a fair and just criminal legal system, economic equity and equality within the United States of America, affordable healthcare, education, and every unalienable right guaranteed the constitution of the United States as well as loving other Black people fully. The Twitter account was launched in June 2020 with the hopes of empowering the black agenda.
Earlier in the tweet thread, the Bad Boy Records founder denounced Trump and called for unity.
“The NUMBER ONE priority is to get Trump out of office. HE HAS TO GO. We can’t allow this man to continue to try and DIVIDE US. The people that have the most responsibility and should be SCARED TO DEATH of this man are white people. WE ARE ON THE VERGE OF A RACE WAR.”
Elsewhere in Diddy’s train of thought, Puff Daddy endorsed Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee in the upcoming Presidential election. The music industry legend is walking back comments he made in April where he mentioned he would not be voting for Biden. Diddy’s statement to create a new party comes after reports emerged that Ice Cube was working with the Trump administration.
