    Then it is imperative that people go to local candidates and other political meetings, regularly

    I suggest we call for a nationwide experiment controlled by Black people, regardless of their political party, to vote. Let's see if we can prove that the Black vote will make a difference in the outcome of America's midterm election. So get registered if you're not already and go to the polls in November and cast your vote. Help people in your communities who can't get to the polls to sign up for absentee ballots or take them to the polls. Demand that your poll stations accommodate people with disabilities. Sign petitions in favor of allowing our military personnel to vote and for those votes to be counted; and sign petitions to end gerrymandering. Encourage young adults who will be 18 years old by November, to vote. Host election parties and watch together on tv--after you have voted. So Black voters and non-voters alike...think about our ancestors and what they fought and died for...say it loud...I'm Black and I'm Proud...exercise your CIVIL RIGHT to vote.

    That law needs changing :facepalm:


    Texas woman sentenced to 5 years in prison for voting while on probation

    Washington Post

    If she had known it was illegal, Crystal Mason said she would have never cast a vote in the 2016 presidential election. The 43-year-old former tax preparer hadn’t even planned on voting until her mother encouraged her to do it ...

    I seriously agree NNQ, only problem is it seems that our race really doesn't care anymore, no talk, no walk. Why? I have absolutely no clue as to why. Everybody is in agreement though that after The Black Panther Party & NOI including the assassination of Malcolm-X was toppled by COINTELPRO with a lot of undercover assimilation surveillance from their badge wearing house Negros the wind was permanently removed from our collective sails. Not so much because of apathy but fear of anything law enforcement. That type of fear can completely paralyze an already fractured race. Every culture that plants their nations flag in America forms associations that help their own assimilate into America through aid programs, block votes, real estate holdings, running for even the most obscure political positions, government grants, special career education organizations, ethnic media and local ethnic businesses. Now as much as a lot of us would like to and many of us already are, we can't direct our anger at those people because unlike them "WE ARE ALREADY HERE".

    Happy Easter.
