This is correct. I was at a jazz event on friday and we sat next to a black judge. She was just like us, but fighting to get enough votes to get elected. A lot of our issues are local. Democracy means that in one area we may be the minority but in another area we may be the majority. So if we don't vote then of course we don't get to decide who will judge us, police us, and make the rules in our area. So that local vote should be seen as even more important than the national vote.
the senate is the most important vote of 2020

I asked why are we still fighting the same fight of racism maybe because they figured out another way to put it out no more hoods just straight in your face I hate to say this but the Mexicans and Latinos and Hispanics are feeling what we've been feeling for the last four hundred years now as of people with all of us strong what are we going to do about it this man and his followers are calling us out caging us killing us talking about us and what are we doing does the law even matter why can they get away with so much and we can't do anything about it why is our Justice so slow and their Justice is so quick and Swift and why did they just let him sit back and do this you have kids crying being shot and nothing gets done about it
You just answered your own question in that one paragraph alone. Unlike us The Mexicans, Latinos and Hispanics are doing just fine for they devised a plan and executed it with precision and even though their symbolic rushing the gates to freedom is hardly news anymore they are still migrating to America by the thousands and are automatically receiving benefits we still fight tooth and nail for. There are almost a dozen voluntary aid advocate agencies assisting their transition into the American culture. We cannot become jealous of a culture that fought and won their fight while all we do is complain and expect things to magically improve for us. Yes, we are our own worst enemy. If we're not begging for handouts from the government we are either shooting ourselves in the foot or we're stabbing each other in the back. All of our Black Democratic hopefuls are gone. So which one of the lessor evils do we back? I thought we were supposed to back the best candidate that promised to fight for our rights as citizens not because he or she hates Trump the most.


Good luck.

Rarely ever do you get one party control of all 3 branches of government at the federal level, causing the legislative process to be adversarial. The effect of this causes a lot of people to feel like government doesn't work and their votes don't really matter. Because of course we are a minority in respect to national elections. So in some areas, voting for senator is very important and you may be in a strong enough population to influence that election. In my state (Ohio) not so much. But local government? That's a whole different ball game. And if people voted at the local level they could build that habit of voting in general and maybe more people can feel like they are part of the process. But voting on the national level can be hard for black voters depending on where they live. I'm not saying their vote doesn't count because I still believe they should vote and push their friends and family to vote too.
