    I don't believe our issues as a people can be legitimately blamed on either the Black man or Black woman. How we address the issues we face is our problem because we're easily divided. There has to be something that we can agree on as a problem, then agree on as remedies, then agree to fight the problem, and commit to fighting together.

    How many of us honestly believe in the saying, "united we stand, divided we fall"?

    I do not think Black men are responsible for the current state of affairs.
    I do wonder if/will the Black male United take a stand against the Prison Industrial Complex(PIC). Not that the Black male is responsible for the PIC, but they are the majority victims.
    Will the Black male protest the PIC. IMO, they must form a movement against the PIC. That's all.

    It's a sickness that must have cure.
    Black Men, and only Black men have the cure.
    The time in near.
    Hopefully Hillary will win.
    I wanna see this witch front and center.
    Her husband wrote these crime bills allowing private prisons, arresting for any small reason, etc. etc. etc.
    Hillary got to undo what her husband did. When she is in the WH is the perfect time to put the PIC front and center in her face every day.
    Hold her accountable.
    I'm believing the Black Lives Matter Org will call her out ASAP.
