    In the Spirit of Politics,

    ... Any thoughts on this Family?

    This very issue became our signature in the Politics from the Black Perspective group at start-up. And I thank God for the help of those involved, especially, Proverbs31Woman:

    Obama: Right to vote under threat in the US

    [​IMG]

    NEW YORK (AP) — In an unsparing critique of Republicans, President Barack Obama on Friday accused the GOP of using voting restrictions to keep voters from the polls and of jeopardizing 50 years of expanded ballot box access for millions of black Americans and other minorities.

    "The stark, simple truth is this: The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago," Obama said in a fiery speech at civil rights activist and television talk host Al Sharpton's National Action Network conference.

    I'm not sure what I think about this for two reasons. 1) Al Sharpton and 2) Hillary Clinton.

    Noted ... And how about that shoe throwing incident, which went under reported in my mind, lol.

    Hillary Clinton dodges shoe during Las Vegas speech

    (Reuters) - A woman threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton on Thursday as the former secretary of state was delivering a speech at a Las Vegas hotel, but Clinton dodged it and continued with her remarks, a U.S. Secret Service spokesman said.

    Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie said the shoe-thrower was not a ticketed guest for Clinton's speech at the Mandalay Bay hotel and had been spotted by Secret Service agents and hotel security guards before the incident.
