I just listened to Malcolm X ballot or the bullet speech. He could have made that speech today its that relevant. 90 percent of Black people dont want symbolic gestures any longer
I don’t understand why people STILL won’t get this
If they are afraid to go to the polls, they can ask for a specific form for those who are disabled. Mail it in.
All the real Black leaders King, Malcom,…were set up and killed by the fake Black leaders like Jesse and Sharpton. The hits were put out by the Left Mob. Get the book “Scam”. Trump has got more Blacks released from prison in 4 years (8K with 91% of them being Black) then all the Black leaders including Barry Obama combined in the last 50 years. No I’m not a bot I’m from 3rd Ward Texas just FYI. Biden is a known KX3 affiliate and the Clintons well…we see where their name is associated with (Epstein).
Honestly guys, I still debate with all of my friends about, my choice for these two seat I love or can live with Harris for VP, but I would have preferred AOC, and Harris! Biden too old and not prepared, to defensive! AOC, talented, researcher, speaker, and much more, in her qualities. Harris, to me, did great during hearings, few mistakes in Prosecution History needs more realism associated with her stand on issues, in explanation only! If they learn how to breakdown things, like the Coupon Congress Woman, they will be two of the most powerful women in Politics! The both have a rich history and other men and women who have proven themselves, worth enough, to compliment this Team!
I cant survive for 4 more years of trumppence being that im a transwoman of color
I am a life long Republican that it took 67 years for me to see the light. This has been an administration of hate. Also the rep’s forgot who got them there Old white folk. That is about to change. I live in Arizona and we are about to flip this state Blue. Mark Kelly democrat Senator and Biden/Harris…I hope I live long enough to see President Harris..
What a great pick She is who I wanted. She is smart and Hot….
Harris is not black she hates blacks Look at what Judge Joe Brown said about her
Explain to me how choosing somebody solely based on their gender and race is not racist or prejudiced?
Only 4 years and 3 months left for the Trump Presidency !
I’m not trying to influence anyone’s opinion. I really want to have confidence in Biden/Harris. But how is Biden’s association with mass incarceration being ignored?
How is Ms. Harris’ association with being bad for African Americans in CA being ignored? Jailing mothers of truants. Cheree Peoples: she has a video explaining how she was jailed even though her kid was ill w/sickle cell.
Or Jamal Trulove: in his video he talks about how he was framed by the police. Ms.Harris attended his trial & sentencing. He got 30 yrs to life. He was eventually freed, sued CA & won $13 million.
*Why does KH claim to be African American but neither of her parents are?* She ran in CA politics as an Indian Asian but now run on national scale as an African American?
Ms. Harris has a video where she’s laughing while describing her policy of jailing parents of truants.
*She’s on another video stating she will not do anything specifically for African American people.*
Is it true Trump supported Harris in the past??
*Before the election will Biden/Harris themselves clearly state what Action they will do for African Americans? Why no platform for the ethnic group at the bottom of the US caste system? Other demographics have platforms like DACA & gay marriage.*
I’m sorry to ask these questions, It just seem like AA people overall need real change, real action by politicians we put in office. Can someone interview KH and ask her to specify what is the platform for their African American voters.
We have not been back out here since 1964. Now we out here. When l saw the Asians, holding up our sign and singing “We should Overcome,” We need to get out there with our black people because we are facing this racism. We are facing the fight of our life. We as a people will win. l don’t have no one, l embrace love, and l have many family members that are mixed race and so am l. But at the end of the day, l am human. 166k people are dead, and most of us are taking care of the rich.
Our issues and platform should be 1) Housing 2) Climate Change 3) Jobs and most jobs will never return, so the next job category is Health Care, Bringing back drugs companies, and redistributing the wealth, Prison reentry because they need new young blood, because the old people in jail are no longer viable or able to keep waiting 5) housing is a problem and they will steal federal land and turn it into a private business, land grabbing. 6) Food stamps, they want to give out free government rationings for free. Spam, killer cheese, and processed foods that they handed out during the 50’s to the 70’s. Social Security is not an handout, we pay for that. He is a business man, that does not want to pay benefits. We are headed to civil war, they brought this shit. There is not going to be a good ending. Stand up, our families are mixed, and we are in it to win it. l love Good Trouble. Get rid of the GOP, the Mitch that wife created a program for his projects. How we can get vaccines from Russia and pay for it with our damn money. Are we crazy?
Donald Trump will reset the deck if he is appointed. We will be in real trouble.
The blood of our ancestors are on the ground and l have said that all my life. l told my family we got to get this right. Kamala Harris is a black woman, she is of mix race so am l. But at the end of the day, l am black, l look black and l have kids and family that are of all colors. When l was in the hospital having two of my children, the nurse looked at me and looked at my children and said, the baby don’t look like you. She don’t have your color, you brown and she light skinned and she looks like the hispanic lady in the bed next to you. She kept looking and she went to get another nurse before she handed me my daughter. She said, “she has straight hair, she is light, and she doesn’t look like she is black. So l see how this racism works and it is also embedded in our families.
If they want to impact the vote, Amazon, FEDEX and UPS, Buses that are not in use. All teams can donate their planes, buses to transport ballots. We can do this. We can use every transportation company to move ballots. We can drive up to the post offices and drop off the ballots.
The agenda has been staged a long a time. We need jobs. Most of the jobs are low level. $9.00 is the minimum federal wage. The food stamps and housing are different about the country. l know that Senator Harris was working in the California Attorney General Office and she didn’t write the laws, but she created a rehabilitation program that set a process for them to return to their communities. We got a lot of people on the streets and free. She is not holding the guns and killing them. They are killing each other. This is the “Good Trouble l am behind for John Lewis.” Good Trouble.
They should say, dRuo they want to die? Your DNA has put you at risk. We are not having a flu, we got a low grade biochemical war fair that they used against you. Do you want a free America or a dictator. You want to win. You will not have food stamps, your hungry and the Republicans went home until September. Because the fiscal year begins 10/1/2020.
The media is already focusing on Harris. Soon no one will even remember Biden is running for president. A replay of the McCain Palin campaign. Headline are already saying “When Harris is elected…” blah, blah, blah.. Problem with that is, Biden’s the one running for president, not Harris.
Why Biden didn’t pick Corey Booker? He would’ve made a good VP.
Meanwhile Val Demings husband Jerry is under investigation by the department of justice for crimes against poor people in Bithlo!
No wonder Biden doesn’t want her for a running mate!
I tell you what. If any of you feel as though you can do better than her; step up to the plate. Don’t hate, don’t be a part of the problem, but be a part of the solution. Oh wait; I guess many of you don’t have her education, credentials, and or resume.
The sad thing is that some of my own Brother’s and Sister’s don’t realize that we as a people are still being brainwashed to not trust our own. Saddens my heart that so many of us continue to bash and hurt the black race opposed to getting getting behind one another to help us move forward as a people.
Before black most black people vote they got to learn what voting meansthey got to learn what their ancestors had fought for and brought them to they must also know what happened all these years past tense and you need to educate oh I mean devoteyou need to teach him you know we got those who sit on the floor and sell dope and not fighting for their rights or better life for the kids or their families do you know the mother that struggles you know it where had struggledopen up country I have tears in my eyes right now because people don’t know and I called you what it takes they all got this material life that they want man they don’t know what a real life is they don’t know what a real life is going to do when they build on itI need you as a teacher man it how you teaching me with some things that I understand and I didn’t know and now I do so teacher it’s ignorant and you going to have a lot of struggle but I know you’re a good teacher God bless you if they vote they will change that that’s what we’ve been wanting for a long time change it’s still free people brains I don’t care it’s not going to do nothing for me if I how to educate my
Roland bringing it home putting it down bringing the funk with freshness.
Shirley Chisholm 1972 “Unbought & Unbossed” ……Thanks Ro !
and how do you trash the name BRUCE LEEROY??? (around 1:10:00); if you don’t know that movie, your black card is about to be stripped. Roland you finna look like an ass when you realize how much Harris flops. You the idiot if you think she has real support
what! no one is enthusiastic about Harris except rich donors and the elite. How is it the only black women excited about Harris happen to be on TV. Man please!
Roland fret not thyself! Mya Angelo would tell KAMALA , again “I Rise”! Biden’s campaign is not diverse, it is coming from a radical right wing that he disagree with! We endorsed the right agenda, and now it is the black community to remain calm and focus when we lift up black women! Our agenda is to remove corruption! Endure our constitutional position as civil rights leaders, and keep Biden focused! Maybe he need a better PR person in doing his public speeches to our community! Help the man win! Take us black women forward and KAMALA is there! Roland?
Kamala Harris is a good choice. I’m supporting them 100%.
I heard Micelle didn’t answer the phone.
It takes 9 months to a year for a white cop. If a black cop kills a white person, he gets locked up right away.
We need this segment about how we hold politicians accountable! Please make that a clip!!!
I know one thing for sure and two for certain: Democratic politicians can say any dumb shit that they want concerning the Black community and y’all will still break your necks to vote for them! When Biden says “Hispanics are more diverse…” it’s not an insult – it’s a compliment and respectful of how he can’t take their vote for granted. I’m actually embarrassed that in 2020 we still have this “love it or leave it” attitude with ONE political party – ridiculous! If I were a Conservative candidate I wouldn’t spend any money in the general Black community either…it woukd be a waste if you go by this comment section. Y’all DON’T WANT TO KNOW THE OTHER SIDE…you make excuses not to accept anything they have to say, then turnaround and complain that they don’t care…really?
Well, Muppet News Flash, Biden better win the Latino vote because if he doesn’t the Black vote won’t matter…and we’re so stuck on ourselves that we can’t even contemplate what’s happening demographics-wise.
Nope! Nuff said.
I hope we will not allow Trump to win simply because of Harris. Please vote Biden! We can’t afford another four years of dump!
I don’t care who is on the ticket trump got to go cause four more years of trump we might be back in Jim crow
The children have found a new toy.
Wise men make wise choices
