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.
