Diamond & Silk, the famous pro-Trump duo, railed into black leaders on Monday for contributing to the nation’s divide and said black celebrities like Snoop Dogg are being played by white liberals.
They pointed to the legendary rapper’s recent comments that they say simply divide the country.
“Why?” they asked. “Who is using him to do that? He is basically being pimped out by these white liberal Democrats so he can push this type of narrative within the black community.”
They said white liberals “taught” Snoop Dogg the way because offered them easy access to the younger, minority community. But they point to his lyrics and his reputation as an unabashed womanizer and said he made a career disrespecting women.

“I love white America,” Lynnette Hardaway said. “I love black America. But right now, white America is being abused for no reason.”
She continued, “The problem isn’t with white folks. The problem is black folks killing up black folks.”
They pointed to the weekend violence in major cities that resulted in black children being gunned down and said, “this ain’t about the police. Why is it that black people are killing other black people? And black people are going along with it in silence.”
The country has had weeks of violent protests over the death of George Floyd in police custody and protesters and politicians have called for dramatic changes to policing and society in their relation to the black community.
But some black leaders have recently spoken out about what seems to be systemic violence in some of the inner-city communities.
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, the mayor of Atlanta, held a somber news conference on Sunday night after an 8-year-old girl was gunned down near the site of the police-involved shooting that claimed the life of Rayshard Brooks.
“It has to stop,” Bottoms said at a press conference. “You can’t blame this on police officers. It’s about people who shot a baby in a car. We’re doing each other more harm than any officer on this force.”
Diamond & Silk blasted the deafening silence from black leaders like Oprah and Rev. Al Sharpton on black-on-black crimes. They blamed the rap music culture and lack of two-parent homes as having an overwhelmingly negative effect on the black community.
“Even when it comes down to rap music and how we’re depicted in movies and depicted on TV as savages, thugs and hoodlums. That stuff is playing out in the streets.”
