    NY City Councilman Charles Barron is forming the NY Freedom Party as a protest againt Cuomo's lack of diversity, in his staff running for governor,
    therefore Councilman Barron will run for govenor of New York State under this new party

    what is your opinion or thoughts on this?

    Will it be an all-black party?

    I have no problem at all with that, but I think he will run into some problems given the black population is a minority in that state.

    This is a good idea though. As far as a national black political party, again you'd have the same numbers issue, there's just not enough folk to get a win.
    An all non-white party would have a better chance.

    I'd like to see the People's Party, or the Party of the Disenfranchised. I think it's horrid to put a significant portion of your population in prison, (mostly blacks) and then take away their voting rights. It makes my mouth hang open, just the thought of it. It's modern day genocide.

    There needs to be a party to replace the Democratic Party. What this country needs is a peoples movement. A movement, like that of the 70's but even bigger and better, taking the mistakes of that one and moving forward to finish the job this time.

    I'm definately down for that.
