    Black People Politics : On Hillary Clinton's Overwhelming Support Among African Americans

    Was responding to Willa, but it's also a common misperception that Sanders wants to tax everyone at 90% of their income. So I thought I'd provide a site with info on that to dispell that myth.

    Black People Politics : Bernie And Hillary Have The Same Position On Slavery Reparations.........

    Honestly, I don't know. Examples of reparations and how they're supposed to work weren't covered in any of my history books in college or high school so no I have no idea of any of the ones you've listed. I only vaguely remember southern "reconstruction" being covered in a college course...

    Black People Politics : Bernie And Hillary Have The Same Position On Slavery Reparations.........

    It seems like Bernie Sanders is being held to a standard that Hillary isn't? Is that fair? It doesn't seem to be fair. It seems like Bernie is just digging his heels in again like he did a few months ago when the Black Lives Matter movement confronted him, before his platform changed to address...

    Black People Politics : Black Votes Matter in Ferguson

    You know I never voted in a congressional election until this past month and my vote didn't count for much. I find it very difficult to learn about who is running at that level and to keep track of when the Congressional and "Other" elections are. I hate just pulling the lever for party lines...

    Black People Politics : Jan. 7, 2008: The Day Hillary Clinton Lost the Black Vote

    Yeah :( He's really close though in Iowa I think. A few points away. South Carolina from what I know is a bust even though he's jumped in the polls recently 20 points there.

    Black People Politics : Jan. 7, 2008: The Day Hillary Clinton Lost the Black Vote

    That makes me really nervous and excited. Can you link me to any polls that say that? I think those stats are for New Hampshire only and Hillary still has a lead nationally? I check reddit.com/r/sandersforpresident everyday, multiple times a day for news on his progress. It is the beating heart...

    Black People Politics : Jan. 7, 2008: The Day Hillary Clinton Lost the Black Vote

    In general, The Establishment (which can take many forms) is for Hillary Clinton, trying it's best to shoo her in and ignore, place TV debates in the worst possible time slots and even lie about Bernie Sanders. I met a shoe salesman in a Nike store a few months ago, and I asked him who he...

    Black People Politics : Dr. Ben carson

    I didn't get a good impression from Dr. Carson when I listened to him and watched him during the first few republican debates. This might sound harsh, but I felt like he was kinda a sell-out. Didn't recognize police brutality, or any issues affecting AA but rather denied they existed. I was not...

    Black People Politics : Is The Black Vote Necessary To Win the US Presidency?

    I was thinking about this after I posted. You're right and I was wrong in my initial impression. What it comes out to is that white women are *more likely* to be democrat than white men due to republicans being so poor women's issues, but overall statistically it comes out like you said. All...

    Black People Politics : Is The Black Vote Necessary To Win the US Presidency?

    Every vote is necessary. Just remember, in 2000, George W. Bush won by 500 votes in Florida.

    Black People Politics : Is The Black Vote Necessary To Win the US Presidency?

    White Women (and women in general really) actually are more likely to vote democrat due to the anti-woman policies of the republican party. They want to do away with planned parenthood, and Trump the frontrunner constantly makes disparaging remarks about women's looks. Not very attractive for...

    Black People Politics : The Only Reason To Support Donald Trump

    Good. I'm glad they are taking control of the economies and I hope they will be able to improve their heft on the world-stage. Too often Africa is seen by white people as a land of suffering, where children die of starvation, people die of AIDs, wars and genocides are fought and committed...

    Black Entertainment : Righting a Past Wrong? Academy to Present Spike Lee with Honorary Oscar

    It's an internet joke that Leonardo Dicaprio is never going to win an Oscar. It gets brought up a lot online. He's been nominated so many times, but no Oscar. That isn't to say the Oscars and the Academy at large aren't racist. They are, and I hope the boycott of it will give some attention...
