If I recall, there was a very spirited debate regarding black folks and voting a while ago, at least prior to pres. obama winning his second election.

A question put forth by glen ford of black agenda report, which am going to relay on to the community:

If Black voting strength actually translates as real power, then why is the Black condition deteriorating, even as Black electoral activity increases?”

It's an excellent rhetorical question. Yet it's a poor philosophical concept. Power comes from Nationhood; however America is a White Nation. Voting in a White Nation empowers White Nationhood. Were we to vote in a Black Nation that'd be a different story. I.e. "These are our Council of Elders whom we'll listen to" and that Council decreed this or that boycott--we'd have Power. But we're voting in a White System and that can only empower Whites.

Two thoughts here.

1. 12%
2. Sprawl

I'll also throw in something else, it is tough to unify if everyone is not willing to unify for the right reason(s). What is/are those reasons? That may be another thread in the making. We've seen enough wolves in sheep's clothing that we automatically label a sheep a wolf, if you catch my drift.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
