    i wasnt sure where to place this thread.............

    on tuesday jesse came to emory.... he main focus was supposed o be on activism and the college student.

    i dotn kno what yall views are on him, but personally, to me he's just another politician- and he shpowed that throughout his speeh- despitew the overwelming effect it had on me.

    he started wit Kings adress- then he hit us wit a timeline- i think it wwas to educate those who dont really kno about the movement- then nhe talked about how there was 3 independence days- anyone else kno about that- b/c he spoke kinda fast and it was kinda confusing- and then he switch- and started to talk about voting- and bush

    he really made me- and i kno allot of other peopel feel really ignorant for not being registered to vote - realizing that "we" hold the power- then they passed out forms for us to register

    overall- i think he gain some respect-

    jus wanted ot put this out there......

    I DNT THINK NOT VOTING IS IG, THINK ABOUT IT THE SYSTEMS RIGGED. WEVE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEFORE AT DESTEE SO ILL BE BRIEF. THE DEMS & REP'S HVE A DEAL,IT STARTED WITH CLINTON THEY USE THEIR MONEY (THT CITIZENS DONATE) TO BUY MODERATORS 4 THESE FIXED DEBATES. THEY CUT A DEAL WITH EACH OTHER EVER SINCE ROSS PEROT THT THEY WILL ONLY DEBATE EACH OTHER(DEM VS REP) AND NO ONE ELSE ANY TIME ANY WHERE. DO U THINK 4 A SECOND THT THESE ELECTIONS R LEGIT?

    what will be different under Kerry is that three supreme courts justices will be appointed who are not far right ideologues.
    if Bush gets to appoint the next three justices, civil rights will be permanently eroded. the FBI will be knocking on your door for real.

    you brothers are supposed to be so hiiiiiiiiiiiip, how is it that you do not know of the over riding importance of the supreme court in your life? how is it that you don't know that four justices are over eighty years old and will need to be replaced?

    the next president will be more important for his court appointments than any of his policies.

    oh, then there is the little matter of the draft returning.
    are you of draft age?

    i seriously advise you to get registered to vote!

    this is a high stakes election, if you do not vote, please do not have anything further to say about conditions here in the US.

    cool. :great:
    check out the supreme court and the importance of the supreme court decisions in the rights you have today.
    then ask your self if you want Bush to make the supreme court appointments.
    do you want another Thomas? :danger:
