Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s voting promotion group “When We All Vote” has partnered with the BLK dating app and is doing “voter registration activations” with the company.” The BLK dating app is aimed at Black singles looking for hook-ups.
Last week, BLK released a video encouraging Black voters to go to the polls for reasons other than civic responsibility. It’s title: “No Voting No Vucking.” Vucking! See, that’s not vulgar, like, say “fucking.” Former First Ladies can approve of “vucking” for votes. Sample lyrics:
“No voting, no vucking, no voting, no touching,” rapper Saucy Santana sings in the video. “You wanna hit this booty, gotta do your civic duty!”
His partner Trina sings, “But you want to flirt, I’ll show you how to be a poll worker.” POLE worker, get it? “Don’t stop now, stuff my ballot box again, brought my homegirl through, we’ll put the bi in partisan,” the back-up singers singers warble.
Now Mrs. Obama’s group claims they never approved the video, since it has been the object of criticism. “When We All Vote did not participate in the creation, provide funding or support the making of this video,” a spokesperson said. The video links to Michelle’s group’s voting portal.
OK. So why is Michelle’s group partnering with an organization that endorses sex for votes as its motivation for blacks going to the polls? “When We All Vote” promoted the BLK dating app in a September tweet, linking an article announcing the partnership between the two organizations. “Have you heard? @meetBLK is launching a digital hub designed to shift the culture of voting and politics in the Black community, amplify voices of Black voters, and drive Black voter registration,” the tweet states.
If Michelle supports BLK, then it supports BLK’s election “activations.” What did she expect?
