Snoop Dogg highlighted a list of top ten reasons to not vote for Mitt Romney as well as why one should vote for President Obama. The politically incorrect list refers to Romney as a “white n****” who looks like he “says n****” all the time.”
Snoop Dogg, who recently changed his name to Snoop Lion, revealed the list, which is not his own, via Instagram. He took a photo of a notebook with the handwritten lists in two columns: “Why I’m Not Voting For Romney” and “Why I Am Voting For Obama.” [See list here]
The number one reason cited for not voting for Romney is because “He a white n****.” Likewise, Obama will receive his vote because “He a black n****.”
Romney’s debate performance, that most polls say he won, is also a subject of discussion.
“He always interrupts and talks over people like he’s netter than them,” he wrote (No. 7). “B**** I will beat the s*** out of you.”

The list also calls Romney a “ho” (reason No. 4) and makes three different references to his name: “This mutherf***’s name is Mitt” (2,6,10)
As for the reasons he’s to voting for Obama, the list highlighted his relationship with Jay-Z (“he’s BFFs with Jay-Z”) and Beyonce (He’s hugged Beyonce before and sniffed her neck”).
While the comedic, if crude, list showcases Snoop’s attempt at making a political statement, other rappers have become active in the political process this election.
Lupe Fiasco got into a Twitter beef with comedian D.L. Hughley over his anti-voting stance. Nicki Minaj caused a stir when she rapped that she was voting for Romney (though she later clarified that she was actually supporting Obama).
Jay-Z held a fundraiser that raised a reported $4 million for the president and Nas has recently recorded a PSA in which he urges the youth to vote. —E. Parker, CBS Local
