I feel like if that take our right to vote
That might as well take our freedom
I agree that we are governed so heavy its crazy
Yet so many died for this I would be hurt
I think that no matter if they keep our right to vote
We will never get what we are looking for
Yet the right to vote is a blessing from God and the ppl that died for us

Right, right right!!!

What good is a vote, if there's no one that's going to do anything to change anything? Now, I agree that taking our vote away is a slap in the face, but let's not fool ourselves into thinking there will ever be someone serving as president, that will change anything for black people. All they do is talk the same rhetoric, and they get elected, and do a complete 180. Even if a black man or woman got elected, it wouldn't be someone that has the interests of black folks on their mind. It will be someone so far removed from the black community, that he/ she might as well be lily white. Voting is a distraction. It never does any good no matter how many of us vote. All the black people that voted in the last election are still disgruntled with the way we are represented in this country. 2008 will be the same unless we forget about what this country is willing to do for us, and concentrate on what we can do for ourselves.
