As interesting as this presidential race has become, I am thoroughly applaud at what I have read thus far about the recent support of African American Leaders in prominent positions. We can all make assumption about the non-influential nature that, writers, authors, actors, rappers, singer or even black political figures have on the black vote – and you would be all fooling yourselves. The article touches on how Maya Angelou , a good friend of Oprah, has endorsed Hillary Clinton. In my head I immediately thought it had to be a great reason for Angelou to go against her long time friend Oprah !

When you have Oprah Winfry[One of the most well respected African American Women in today’s society] begins to endorse an candidate; Maya Angelou [ An acclaimed author, activist , and overall well-renowned and respected black women ] starts to support Hillary Clinton, this adds a separation in the black vote.

One thing I would like to do is speak to all black voters! Whether or not you are a supporter of Obama or Clinton; please listen to the issues! Personally I am tired of hearing the reason [excuse] that Clinton is more “EXPERIENCED” then Obama.

If you look back into our history, most of our presidents had some type of history. We have more then 10 years of BUSH and CLINTON in the White House. It is time for change. And I know you ask yourself, at what cost would this so-called “CHANGE” be for my well being.

Obama has already talked with the two regarding ways in which they can use their music in a positive way, and also how to branch out and fill the gap between older generations who dismiss Hip Hop as a negative, inferior art form.
