Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Diddy & Russell Simmons Surprise Miami Early Voters

YBF celebs Beyonce, Mary J., Diddy, and Russell Simmons all showed up to Miramar City Hall in Miami yesterday to surprise early voters who had been standing in line to cast their ballot for up to 8 hours: Definitely a good look for The Carters.   Mary J. brought along Kendu and the fam. Russey Simmons kicked it with the voters.   And Diddy brought along his fam and kicked it with fans and voters too. Loves it all. More pics and a recap when you read the rest... More celeb pics from Miami's early voting scene:   Loves it.   Here's the recap YBF reader Ancha from MIA sent in:
Hello, Natasha. I frequent the site and missed my daily dose today because I decided to do some early voting. I got in line @ the Miramar Town Center "City Hall" @ about 9:30 this morning and faithfully stood in line to make my voice heard at about 5:10p. Looking at the estimated ballot count for that day, apparently I was number 3,427! IT was a tedious process that all of the locals endured, but we were treated to some surprise appearances. Miramar is a growing suburb just north of Miami beach but I never thought that Diddy, Beyonce (with her sexy bodyguard), Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, and Russell Simmons would ever pop up and do some mingling. It was definiteley some encouragement to the crowd of people wrapped around the building and lined up for a polling that will probably go into the wee hours of the night. My friend arrived @ about 2:30 and she has not yet reached the auditorium that spills into the polling center (That alone is a 2 hour wait). Lines are ridiculous indeed.
Wow. I have no words for how excited I am that this election season, unlike any others, has inspired an insane amount of people to actually give a damn. For whatever reason, people care. And that's all that matters. Indifference always lead to the death of change. Bravo to all the YBF folks in Miami and elsewhere who have endured the early voting 8 hour lines and other craziness. And for those of us in states without early voting (like me), tomorrow will be a b*tch and a half. But we're going to suck it up and deal with it--by any means necessary. Please do not get discouraged. Be prepared for an incredibly long day at the voting booth and the shenanigans that are bound to pop off. If you can stand in line at the club for a few hours, you for damn sure can do the same for something that actually matters. Obama/Biden '08 snitches. Let's get it...

[quote comment="264994"]That was a GREAT idea for the celebrities to come out and ecourage the voters who had to wait hoursssss to vote. I hope they spread the word to their other celebrity friends to do the same in their cities tomorrow![/quote] Like I told Tasha.. that ish was maaaaad unexpected. It's was a nice surprise, nobody(of age and eligible to vote) was getting out of line, cuz let's face it.. it was hard enough just to keep your spot in such a long line of people, but the Obama Team showed a lot of love. It shows a genuine interest and excitement in our country right now.

Ignorant negroes who were

Ignorant negroes who were lifted up by the KKK focus ALL THEIR ATTENTION ON HELPING WHITE RASCIST DESTROY BLACK BOYS and to come up with new ways to do it. Now the fools are criticizing EVERY WORD that a CHILD makes IF HE IS SMART ENOUGH TO MAKE HIMSELF A MILLIONAIRE WITH NO HELP FROM THEIR OLD POOR AZZES. IF SOLDIER BOY WASN'T MAKING A DIME OFF OF TALKING LIKE A CHILD, THEY WOULDN'T GIVE HIM THE TIME OF DAY, OR A BISCUIT IF HE WAS STARVING ON THE STREET. THESE OLD FOOLS ARE SO DUMB THAT THEY don't know that all they are doing is policing black people JUST LIKE THE MASSAH TAUGHT THEM TO DO IN SLAVERY DURING HIS ABSENCE. WITHOUT THE BUY IN OF THESE IDIOTS SLAVERY WOULD HAVE BEEN OVER A LONG TIME AGO. BREAK GENERATIONAL CURSES. STOP THE STUPIDITY. Instead of using your energy to return any black boy to the ghetto who dares to work himself out of poverty, why aren't you lobbying washington for jobs for them, drug programs, education programs FOOL! And by the way dirty africans SOLD US into slavery, AND WORSE OF ALL THE FOOLS ARE STILL SELLING SLAVES. REGARDLESS OF THE REASON WE GOT OUT OF AFRICA WHO ARE BLESSED TO BE OUT, AND SOLDIER IS SMARTER THAN ALL OF YOU FOOLS TO KNOW THAT.

Barack the vote people!![/quote] I live in MD too...its about to be really foolish tomorrow. I always go before work, but when I voted in the primaries the lines were the longest I've ever seen them, so I can only imagine what they will look like tomorrow. I don't care how long I have to wait...I'll just bring a book and wait it out...

Apparently you can wear Obama

Apparently you can wear Obama gear to the polls in FL (Beyonce and Diddy), huh? Stop giving people ideas that will have them turned away on Election Day. Please be smart about this people! The law is murky on this one and varies from state to state. Don't turn up all Obama'd out and have to go home and change your clothes!

I feel sorry for the lthe people who have to stand in long lines. I live in Hampton, Ga. which is south of Atlanta. I voted at the same place T.I. did and was in and out in 25 minutes! I couldn't believe it since some counties here in Atlanta had 3-5 hour wait. I took my 4 month old along with me and I was relieved that the line was that short but even more relieved that I got my Obama vote in.[/quote] I live in Gwinnett county, plan on voting tommorow since I don't have to work or go to class. I go to GA State in ATL and had alot of people tell me they waited in line for 3+ hours! I hope the lines aren't going to be that long...but I assume they will be, I'll tough it out anyway gotta make my vote count![/quote] good for you! do it do it do it!! some people are amazing alot of people are on you're mind set and not just you.. though ~so nervous~[/quote] Yes! And it is especially true out here in the "red" States...McCain is ahead of Barack by 3% here in GA...can't let him win! SIDENOTE: why did this [teenage] boy come knocking on my door trick or treating in BLACK FACE make-up wearing a suit, and a name tag that said "Hello my name is Barack OSAMA"... I was heated! But I would expect that from him, I used to work with his sister and her closet racist ass, and her back handed compliments!

Rather then wasting your time here, waiting for something/someone to pounce on, why not just ignore the threads at Beyonce? Why the wasted energy? People kill me.
