    There is no difference between liberal and democrat in today's political environment. For convenience sake I will use the term leftist(s) because that is their true ideology.

    Here is quote from Malcolm X:
    So what do they believe? What do they stand for?

    All leftists believe in evolution, and hail Darwin a great scientist. In his book the descent of man, Darwin writes:
    What many don't realize is that evolution considers blacks lower than caucasians in the evolution ladder!

    All leftists support Planned Parenthood.

    Planned parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger with the goal of stopping the inferior blacks from reproducing. You can learn more here http://www.blackgenocide.org/planned.html

    Leftist support the Teachers Unions, who in turn oppose any meaningful and true public education reform! True reform will undoubtedly lead to loss of Union Membership, and that is more important than educating the poor and under privileged. Because of the policies or lack thereof, the worst teachers get shuffled down to the inner cities. The Teachers Unions & the left are opposed to Charter Schools & School vouchers because those are non UNIONIZED teachers which take away from their membership!

    As a matter of fact Eric Holder is currently in a Law suit against Louisiana to BLOCK school vouchers! http://www.nola.com/education/index.ssf/2013/08/us_government_files_to_block_s.html

    BTW after years of implemented leftist programs, please show me how we are better of now?

    So what is your point you may say. Well if it is not painfully obvious yet, here it is: Why are we voting for a party who is set up to HURT us? Whether they do it intentionally or not is irrelevant. The fact IS that it is happening!

    As I explained in another post, it is my believe and HOPE that all African Americans register as INDEPENDENT and take back the power of our vote! Vote for whoever will offer true & meaningful policies.

    I'll leave you with a profound speech of Malcolm X



    P.S. Happy New Year to all

    Good question!

    I wish I knew. But as it relates to African Americans, I believe it is lack of central leadership. When MLK was alive he was the voice for most of us. After his death his place has been usurped by "leaders" who were, are, more out for selfish gain than true advancement of African Americans.

    It is interesting to note that Jesse Jackson was opposed to Planned Parenthood for the same reasons I highlighted. Makes one wonder what his price was(is) for changing his mind?

    Moreover the DNC does a good job making appearances of being inclusive, while at the same time doing nothing to fix the issues I highlighted in the OP in particular, substandard public education. The thing is that the Teachers Unions help in getting out the vote during election season so politicians of any color will be hard pressed to go against them or their agenda!

    I agree with your statement Josh!:) The ole' bait & switch / divide & conquer political tactics ... have been practiced with success, since almost foreva!!! And in this regard, "our Peoples" have fallen prey to this tactic just as have others (time after time, after time, after time...)! Our Peoples don't hold the monopoly!

    Sooo, ahhh ... to go deeper James concerning your question ...:cool:

    I believe, that many of us do appear to fall prey to this divisive tactic because we are often trained to hate on ourselves - making it easier to hate on each other. Not seeing or trusting what is good within us, which again ... makes it easier to judge / attempt to minimize others!

    Many of us instinctively almost ... deny our God-given gifts ... thus, losing our focus on our visions/our dreams ... AND as a result - sink into a demented funk/depression, which inevitably causes many of us to spew venom! PAIN!!! Show me a negative, sarcastic, snarky human being & I'll show you a person in relentless PAIN. The ole' saying appears to be true ... "Hurting people, hurt people"! Sooo, with a recipe of ... lack of focus, negativity, sarcasm, depression, self-hate, etc.; how can many of us "not" fall prey to these ugly tactics.

    Again, it appears that other races hold the same "kinda' ugly stuff" we do (spawned by different circumstances perhaps), maybe "we" are quicker to admonish our own faults louder (among ourselves).

    You may have a point there elder bro. Kemetstry. But just in case, Prophetess' point needs addressing:

    Uh ... Uh!!! Not so fast Kem! ;)

    Many of us DO have the ahhh ... cash??? Yeah we ride in our Beemers & Bentley's, graduate from a 20-25 year stint as a #1 talk show host, OWN (pardon da' punn) our own TV/WEB medium ... AND ... STILL get dissed by A&S and Barney's EXCLUSIVE department stores!!!!!!!

    Trust!!! Would LOVE to agree witcha' ... BUT ... jus' livin' while Black causes me to say NOPE ... it ain't all about da' Benjamins! What we as a Peoples face HERE in this world ... is far more egregious & won't be solved "solely" by our gross ca-pita! Now... true financial independence could be a logical start ... but "not" the total solution! And will "not" make us-Black folk honorary!
