Re: Star Organizer Joins Obama’s “Operation Vote” To Rally Minorities

Noah The African ·
I don't get it. How come the President or his "handlers" don't want to "target" minorities (blacks) with POLICY, yet, its ok to target them to get their vote? In other words, the president believes its ok to target minorities (blacks) to HELP THE PRESIDENT, but the president does not believe its right to target minorities TO HELP THE MINORITIES (blacks). What the f'ck happened to the rising tide theory? His POLICY should raise the tide for everyone....meaning minorities (blacks) and whites...

Now that is interesting. Gotta wonder where the money came from. Xum

Considering that Republican money is less than pristine - and the blood and dirt on it mostly comes from the American people they leave slaughtered while collecting it .... I don't see why it should make a big difference!!

I don't see why it should make a big difference!! Yeah, the money for both sides probably came from the same place. So it may just be a matter of choosing the color of the puppet. Seeing what happened to Qadaffi all of the puppets work the same. Xum

Being that Obama said he would change the way fundraising operates, it should matter.

Considering that the President broke records in his 2008 campaign for raising money over the Internet from small individual donations and through grassroots efforts from individual Americans and supporters .... and is on pace to collect as much if not more in this upcoming election ... I would say that he HAS changed the way election fundraising happens. No other candidate had - or has since - received the kind of individual donor, non-corporate tainted money support that the President has.

The spirit of Black people needs a post-slavery/post jim crow overhaul. We simply have the keys to our own jail cell now. Why don't we spend money more Black-wards?? The hard reality is that most of us only spend money in Black businesses during a haircut or a hair-do....that's it!!! We must refocus our efforts to grow ourselves up. Too many of us are dependent on "others" to hire us for THEIR PROFIT!!!

One of the main problems that I see with African American economic independence is the fact that so many Black minds that think alike are so far away from each other, or often do not even know the other exists. Case-in-point, all of the members on this site, I think we are all from different states. If we all lived in the same state or the same city, maybe we could have implemented something by now. Another thing is, that there are so many out there telling us what needs to happen, without a...
