    Now that the DNC is over, the race between Hillary and Donald is on.

    We've all discussed the personal struggles we have with supporting either one of these candidates, but the reality is, unless something catastrophic happens, it's clear that one of them will be elected as president in November.

    Either way, citizens who have awakened due to the drama and enthusiasm brought on by the candidates during this election season, it's crystal clear to me that voters need to continue to put pressure now and over the next 4 years on politicians, local, state and federal, to represent the people and not just the wealthy and corporations.

    The giant has been awakened and will be hard to put back to sleep. Vigilence, commitment and consistent discipline is what is needed to see the change we want to see in our government. We need to keep our eyes on and hold accountable the politicians we vote into office and not be afraid to remove them from office if they don't keep their promises to us.

    We also need to be forward thinking and visionaries by cultivating the next generation of politicians who we want to represent us in political office. Don't just focus on what they say, but what they actually do.

    Keep your eyes on Nina Turner. She initially backed Hillary, then switched to Bernie during the primaries. She continues to stand and speak out about injustices and inequities. Her audience is mixed races, men and women, young and old, different religious and non-religious beliefs.

    She may cause Hillary or Trump to be a one-term president unless they have an extraordinary record during the first term.

    Here she stands speaking to a crowd at a People's Convention during the DNC along with Jill Stein.

    This would only be probable if anyone other than Hillary is sElected.
    She could challenge Hillary, but it's rare that an incumbent is defeated unless there is public disapproval.

    Plus, Hillary has dead people and ghosts voting for her

    Hmmm...public disapproval.

    It's a known fact that Hillary lies...and gets caught in them.

    Knowing that she lies, it's possible that all of the "agreements" that she and Bernie have reached as part of the Dems platform, she could renig on once she's elected.

    The issues that looks like she has taken a progressive position on . . . lower college debt, $15 minimum wage, single pay Medicare, anti-TPP...she could very well make a half-*** attempt on these then cave in on and keep things the same.

    The first 100 days . . . we'll see what happens. We'll see over the 4 years exactly what she does in terms of domestic affairs and foreign affairs.

    We'll need to pay close attention to her nominees for SCOTUS and new decisions coming out of the SC.

    Prison reform . . . any talk about that on hers (we know not Trump) platform and the impact that the PIC has on Black men and the Black community? Or by silence, is she supporting the notion that Black people are violent and need to be "made to heel"?

    Her approval rating her first term needs to be stellar if she wants the Black vote again, don't you think? After all, that's the vote that makes a difference for her campaign.

    One does realize I was being sarcastic when I used the phrase "public disapproval" in the future tense.

    Her approval rating now is toilet water that can't be flushed enough to sanitize it without more pandering.

    Acid rain vs. Clinton toilet water... many would take their chances with acid rain and an industrial water filter, or just remain thirsty.

    Michelle Obama would be another considerable option.

    Out of this whole mess within the last 8 years, I think she has always been the most authentic when it came to engaging people. She was just the first lady, so might not be much to go on.

    Not sure how that would translate into a campaign, but side by side with Nina Turner, I think it would be a more rational competition than what we have seen in the past.

    Unfortunately, her approval rating can be in the dumps and our people will vote for her again. Must keep the Republicans out of office, because overt racism. It is so much worse than the covert racism the Democratic party practices. (sarcasm)

    Black Herstory: 11 Black Women Who Ran for President of the United States

    Here are eleven phenomenal black women who made a bid for the United States presidency:

    Shirley Chisholm
    [​IMG]
    Shirley Chisholm was the first black woman elected to Congress in 1968. On January 25, 1972, she became the first major-party black candidate for President of the United States and the first woman to run for the Democratic presidential nomination.


    Barbara Jordan
    [​IMG]

    You might recognize her face from the United States Postal Service Black History Month commemorative Forever stamp. Barbara Jordan was the first black Senator elected to the Texas Senate after the reconstruction and the first Southern black female elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Although, Jordan did not physically campaign, she received a delegate vote after being the first black speaker for the 1976 Democratic National Convention.


    Lenora Fulani
    [​IMG]
    Leonora Fulani was the first woman to receive more than a quarter of the vote in the general election. She held the record for most votes received by a female candidate until Jill Stein’s 2012 campaign. Fulani was the first black independent candidate and the first female candidate to appear on the ballot in all 50 states. Fulani ran in 1988 and 1992 on the New Alliance Party ticket.



    Carol Mosely-Braun
    [​IMG]
    Carol Mosley-Braun campaigned for her presidential nomination in 2004 as a Democrat. Mosley-Braun raised over $627,869 which at the time was the most money raised by any woman who appeared on the Democratic primary ballot.

    Isabell Masters
    [​IMG]
    Isabell Masters is a legend in her own right. Masters has had her name on the presidential ballot more than any other woman in history. Masters ran as a Republican in 1988, 1992 and 1996. She then ran in her own founded, Looking Back Party in 1992 and 1996. She was a write in candidate in 2000 and ran her final presidential campaign at the age of 90 in 2004 and passed away in 2011. Her husband was also a history-maker, Alfred Masters was the first African American in the United States Marine Corps when he was sworn in on June 1, 1942.

    Monica Gail Moorehead
    [​IMG]
    Workers World Party candidate Monica Gail Moorehead ran twice for the presidency — once in 1996 and again in 2000.

    Cynthia McKinney
    [​IMG]
    Barack Obama was not the only black candidate running for the presidency in 2008. Cynthia McKinney ran on the Green Party ticket in the 2008 presidential election. Fun Fact: Mckinney proposed a bill in Congress for rapper Tupac known as the Tupac Shakur Records Act in 2005 to promote the release of records related to Tupac’s death.

    Angel Joy Chavis Rocker

    [​IMG]
    Very little information can be found on Angel Joy Chavis Rocker. She ran for president in 2000 as the first black female Republican from Florida and passed away 3 years later.

    Charlene Mitchell
    [​IMG]
    Charlene Mitchell was the first black woman to run for president of the United States in 1968. Mitchell ran on the Communist Party ticket and received 1,075 votes from four states. She was also the first woman in history to have her name on the general election ballot.

    Margaret Wright
    [​IMG]
    Margaret Wright ran on the People’s Party ticket in 1976.


    Peta Lindsay

    [​IMG]
    Peta Lindsay campaigned under the Party for Socialism and Liberation in 2011. Lindsay was disqualified due to her age which was 27 at the time. (Presidential candidates must be 35 years of age to hold office.)
