Re: Across Racial and Political Lines, Americans Agree on Charges in Freddie Gray Case But Not Much Else

bottom line: They hate us, they kill us. We're not going to shoot back, because we'll be imprisoned or more than likely killed by them. We're between a rock and a hard place. They do to us what they do, because they CAN. Whatchagonnado?? Take it, try to get an education so that you can work for 'em, so they can pay ya just enough to get by; never what you're worth, but you'll be "white folks" smart!!!

All of our "leaders" are either burned out, deceased or sold out, with the latter being the state of the majority. The majority of African American politicians, just like the majority of Democrats have been busy doing the bidding of their campaign "donors" to our detriment, and to the detriment of all democrat voters and America at large. With the exception of a few, our so-called 'leaders' have been doing nothing but selling out African American interests to the oligarchs, just the same as...

500 years of all this hatred bullshit has to eventually take a toll on someone or another.

All KKK are GOP. Mediocre liberals, yes , but why vote for the Nazis-in-waiting GOP? Vernon Jordan said when LBJ signed off on the Voting Act he did so knowing that the Democrats would lose the South. GOP is opposite. That’s when George Wallace got southern whites to switch to the GOP. Now, GOP is drumming up racist hate again “the browns”. Uncle Ruckus, the GOP would be dead without its racism platform.
