Hey Sis. Willa. Listen, you get no argument from me when you point out what you think are the failings of the democratic party. But let's be fair if you're going to compare the dems to the repubs. Are Black Americans any better off under a republican administration? It makes me think of slaves from different plantations comparing who has it better. You're still a slave. Dem or repub--Children are still dying due to school violence, people are still homeless, unemployment is still high, the school to prison pipeline still exists...I mean, the list goes on. But my question is, if we remain lock stepped with these two parties, what's going to change? We'll be back here in 3 years having the same conversation. I think both parties are corrupt and playing the American people like pawns for their personal gain. And each time we go to the polls to vote, we are forced to choose between the two major parties because the system is rigged and set up to maintain the status quo. Those of us who have jobs are worked to death trying to make ends meet, and they keep us chasing a pipe dream by dangling rich people in front of us like shiny objects. Our children don't want to grow up working hard and still having to struggle. They want to be rich and live the life that they see athletes, musicians and people in the movies live. A person without access and who hasn't had a meal in several days will do whatever it takes to get food. The system keeps us fed just enough, to keep us under its control. Once we've been fed, we remember who fed us and we keep returning for more.
