The Daily Voice reports the popular singer who was once nominated for an NAACP Image Award appeared on The Tom Joyner Show and admitted "he is not registered to vote and apparently has never voted before in his life. [Joe] didn't know when the election was scheduled to take place, how the voting process works, or where people go to vote. But it gets better. Joe said he thought he didn't have to vote because he heard somewhere that Obama had it all wrapped up."
Radio personality Truitt O'Neal observes Joe had little intertest in current affairs and "seemed to be more concerned with rockin' tracks from his brand new CD."
It seems almost foolish that after so many black men and women were beaten and killed for trying to exercise their civic duty at the ballot box, and, as the nation prepares to possibly elect its first black president, some of us still haven't received the memo.
