Kim Whitley (in the Obama shirt), Flo Rida, Lil Mama, Young Joc and Mc Lyte praise Obama from the red carpet at the Black Entertainment Awards in America. BBC has video of the interviews HERE.
The BET crowd joined together to holler "Obama or Die" (video here) last night at the annual awards show. MyWay reported:
Barack Obama didn't attend the BET Awards, but that didn't stop attendees from talking about him.
"If we all register and vote, we will have the first black president in the history of America," Sean "Diddy" Combs told the crowd Tuesday at the Shrine Auditorium before chanting "Obama or Die" - a declarative remix of his neutral "Vote or Die" motto from the 2004 presidential election, when he attempted to boost the youth vote.
Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, was just a few blocks away at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for a fundraiser with a Hollywood guest list that included supermodels Heidi Klum and Cindy Crawford, boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard and movie stars Samuel L. Jackson and John Malkovich. While Obama didn't make an appearance at the BET Awards - either live or on tape - his presence was felt.
As she picked up her award for best female R&B artist, Alicia Keys told the crowd that it's time for black people to erase the word "can't" from their vocabulary.

"Together we can do anything," she said, playing on the Democrat's "Yes We Can" mantra before shouting: "Obama y'all!" It does make you wonder what the inaugural ball will be like come January.

The "Vote or Die" did so well for John Kerry! /sarc
Got a lotta cotton-picking nerve to be saying this crap.
“Obama or die” ?
OK by me.
I’ve got 8,000rnds of 5.56mm and about 10,000rnds of 9mm.
I’ll save the .22LR for the smaller ones.
“Obama” - No way.
“or Die” - That’s up to you DUmmies. We can arrange for you to go to Iran.
Hmmmmmm, habitually sullen, chip-on-shoulder non-productive, talentless, in-your-face racists? I’m OK with “die”.
By most measures, Obamative Action is more “white” than “black” anyway.
Gee. “Obambi or Die” sounds like a threat: “you better vote for the brother or I’ll pop a cap in yo ass.”
Instead of Hitler Youth and Brown Shirts, we have .... fill in the blanks!
So will there be riots on the street if America does not elect Obama this Fall?
Nah!!! That’s just too damn easy....
OK...so who dies?
To the audience chanting, and to Sean Combs:
What are you saying? Are you saying “Vote Obama or else the country will be so bad off that we will all die?
Or are you saying “If you don’t vote Obama, you deserve to die?”
What ever flips their ignoramus racists witch!
He Butthead tell Bevis to get the caskets ready.
Pretty funny piece. But then, what do we expect black performers to yell at the TV camera? “We hate Obama?”
Another example of the “I’m famous, therefore, I’m smart” axiom.
“Obama or Die”
My market bid rate for “will there be riots if Obama loses the election” stands at 67 right now.
