“I’m talking to little cousins that like [Yankee] and all that, and they’re starting to believe that John McCain is [the best candidate]. I can’t have that.
“I opened the newspaper and got sick to my stomach. I felt like I wanted to vomit when I seen that. The reason why I called [Yankee] a sellout is because I feel he did that for a [publicity] look, rather than the issues that are affecting his people that look up to him. How could you want John McCain in office when George Bush and the Republicans already have half a million people losing their homes in foreclosure? We’re fighting an unjust war. It’s the Latinos and black kids up in the frontlines, fighting that war. … We over here trying to take the troops out of Iraq and bring peace. This guy immediately wants war. If not with Iraq or Afghanistan, he’ll start a new one with Iran. I feel real disgusted that Daddy Yankee would do that. Either he did that for a look, or he’s just not educated on politics.
“If he believes John McCain is the better candidate for the Latinos, we could sit down. Even if he wants to get into a debate, we can debate anywhere â€” New York, Puerto Rico.
“Like I said, with me, my whole philosophy on blacks and Latinos is: We’re all one. We’re in the same ghettos, same inner cities, and we’re suffering from the same problems. Every problem the blacks have, the Latinos have. There’s two systems of health care: the one for the rich that’s really good, then there’s the one for the inner city, where they leave ladies in the emergency room unattended for 24 hours until they drop dead. … People don’t even check on her hours after she’s dead. This is normal stuff. This is what’s happening in the U.S.”
I have to totally agree on Joey with this one. I’m not really a fan of this dude, but he hit the sh*t right on the nail. Yankee is out of his damn mind with this ish…Hopefully he retracts his endorsement, because we don’t need the younger generation voting for someone who does not give a rats ass about us as a people!
