Udonis Haslem scolds Black people for not coming out to vote in South Florida
- Updated: November 2, 2020
He issued a powerful message via social media on Monday.
After listing some disappointing voting statistics regarding the Black vote in South Florida, Haslem issued a powerful message of encouragement.
“It’s bigger than me,” he said. “This is my first time ever voting, too. Don’t get tricked into the bag of thinking your vote don’t count, player. Your votes counts. Every vote counts. Don’t get tricked into that bag, man. Lose that voter suppression, man. Break the cycle today.”
Haslem has been a powerful political force as the election has ramped up in recent months.
Now it seems that he is putting it all on the line to try to invigorate Black men and women in South Florida to get to the polls before it is too late.
Florida is known as a bitter battleground state and could play a major role in which way the election ultimately swings.
Clearly, Haslem is doing his part to try to make sure that it swings in the direction that he thinks is best for the future of the United States.
