So this year, the show that is held in New Jersey, had a surprise guest, Hilary Clinton. Although black Twitter didn’t seem too amused, many others thought it was a good look for Hilary.
My 2 cents. I don’t know if I am the only one seeing right now but it seems that Hilary is doing a lot, maybe even over doing it to persuade the black vote. Do what you have to in order to get the attention that you need. What I hate is that most people assume that all black people will vote for Hilary simply because of her antics. It’s like if she breaks out doing a Nae Nae video next week then.. oh wait she already did that.
I mean really. Every since Obama was in videos singing, dancing or even playing basketball every candidate wants to appeal to what social media and young voters think. Be you don’t be a copy cat. I just will assume that the campaign managers are telling them when you do stuff like this it humanizes them. Nope just nope. Here is some reaction from Twitter that had me dying:
What do you think? Was this the wrong place to subliminally campaign? Was this a good move for her campaign? You can check out the show tonight on BET. Check local listings
