Though he might be changing his tune given the news of today, Diddy has released his reaction to the choice of Gov. Sarah Palin to be McCain's running mate. Diddy says, "No disrespect, I love you, I want you to live to be 110. . . Alaska? Alaska? Alaska. Al- come on man. I don't even know if there's any black people in Alaska." Well Diddy, the Census knows. Though black people might not be the most prominent minority population, about 30 percent of Alaska isn't white, whereas only 20 percent of the whole US isn't (at 70.7 percent and 80.1 percent white populations respectively.)
Math notwithstanding, he continues. The thesis statement of his argument appears to be, "John McCain is bugging the F*&% out." He repeats it as the core to his philosophy no less than six times. Then he delivers his assessment on Gov. Palin. "Like the lady is nice. She's cool. She's a heartbeat away. Then she the president. She goin' be on the phone with some man from South Korea or like, wha' she? I mean? What in the hell? Alaska?"
He continues with this argument: "This one right here is not respectful to our lives, diverse lives, anybod- yo. You would let her keep your kids?" Which I think means, would you trust her to babysit?
In the waning moments of his argument he delivers my favorite part: "Alaska mother f*@*r? What is the reality in Alaska? There's not even no crackheads in Alaska. There's not. . . not even no black people. . . there's not even no like crime. . . or foreign policies. Concluding, "We the future," and reiterating his colorful thesis statement.
