The Jay-Z endorsement…

Normally I would not give a fuck about something like this but once I listened to this I realized something. They are really trying to reach a demographic of voters who usually feel like they do not belong in the system that fucks them over everyday. Not only is he doing that but he is doing on their level. Offering rides to their polling centers? Giving the proper information to be allowed in, so they will not get turned away. Regardless of what you think about Obama (I still have my reservations) this is a respectable tactic.

  1. While I agree that it’s great that Jay-Z (and Obama’s campaign) is helping historically disadvantaged voters get to the polls by “offering rides to their polling centers? Giving the proper information to be allowed in, so they will not get turned away”…I just want to point at that this isn’t all that different from Bill Clinton’s or previous Democratic presidential candidates’ efforts with regard to offering rides and giving relevant information. The only difference is that Obama’s campaign is smart (or stereotypical) enough to assume using a celebrity like Jay-Z or will.i.am will get people to the ballots. I’m hopeful, but not yet convinced with regard to Ohioans.
