P-Diddy, to get back in good graces of 51% of the population, indicated he was sorry. He said the apology stems from his support of “Vote or Die” message and he went over the top. MTV (also NPR) aired this clip and while I was flipping back and forth, I saw his grill, so I decided to see what he had to say.
Apparently he’s having morning after syndrome and the “Vote or Die” message was not a scare tactic. The message was meant to empower blacks because they make up such a large part of the military fighting force. When asked to fight blacks make-up the largest proportions and therefore suffer the most losses. He continued to ramble at which point I lost interest.

Well, P-diddy is wrong on the Blacks make up the largest proportion of the fighting force as well. The make up of the Military is pretty close to the makeup of the general population. He's just spouting another make believe urban legend statistic.

So why all of a sudden is anything that P. Diddy says significant. Before the election several on this board were chastised for even acknowledging anything celebrities said. So why is anything said following the election any more significant?
It is quite easy to figure out which celebrities are sincere and which are just in it for the oil...er money.

I think he was quoted as apologizing for taking sides publicly during the campaign undermining his own message and public stance of neutrality. He made comments near the end of the cycle and was called out on it.
Not that it seemed to matter anyway. The percentages of voters did not seem to change in re ages or anything else. The numbers of voters certainly went up, and people went conservative more than last time, but the same number of young people went making it obvious that Combs efforts were relatively wasted.
