Reply to "Why should Black Folk Vote?"

"How has the Jewish vote been diluted in ways that you describe? They represent a small segment of the population yet manage to exert their will in significant ways through the political process."-MBM

Europeans will and have always been significantly more receptive to Jews than Africans. While Africans and African Americans continue to be economically marginalized and exploited and are still in recovery from profound psychological damage (in which no vote can ever cure), a 'Jew' can live among and interact with whites and go virtually undetected, thus facilitating the aquisition of money, quality education, better housing, loans, and eventually success. Therefore, comparing the social accomplishments made by 'Jews' (who are historically, nothing more than ostracized whites) does little to defend your argument for voting.

To be certain, NO election, NO American president, NO political leader can do anything to improve the social status of the African Americans until America's racism and supremanistic society is dealt with head on. Nothing is going to make sense and/or contribute toward our advancement until this problem is thoroughly rooted out, confronted, and eradicated. I'm not suggesting that people should not vote, especially if they feel that it will make difference; however, we should be mindful that if the 'vote' is not going to challenge the racism that is pervasive and thriving all throughout this culture, it will not be effective in helping African Americans. Essentially, until whites deal with their affinity for domination and control, the whole world can vote a million times over and "others," that is, "non-whites" will continue to be at the mercy of European global and economic dominion.
