Re: Young African Americans are engaged in politics but aren't guaranteed to turn out in 2012

Okay ... I have to admit that I found this article - with all it's facts and figures and sectioning and analyzing - somewhat confusing. I think I understand where he was trying to go ... but, I don't think I agree with his analysis in its entirety. I mean, I think there's no disputing that our youth are "under-engaged" in the political process. At least as far as actual VOTING is concerned. And I do believe that intellectually , many of our young people know and understand politics at a rate...

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.

To my knowledge, they still can't/don't poll people who only use cell phones. In this day and age, that's too many millions of people to count who's opinion is never asked for nor received!! And, it should be noted that those people tend to be younger, more liberal-minded and not likely to vote for the "establishment." To me ... if the limited/incomplete data shows that the President is even a little bit in the lead in those states ... then, it's probably more accurate that the President's...

You would think that what it costs a city, town, state to have to go to trial and/or settle on cases like this makes it not worth the racism and racists that the city, town, state, police department(s) keeps coddling. So, was this cop's racism, or racism fetish, psychopathy, or sociopathy, homicidal derangement, or serial killing worth $3.9 Million Dollars?

It's a damn shame someone has to murder a member of your family, to enable you to pay your next bill without getting something turned off and buy a couple pairs of shoes, beg some YT for a comfortable place to live, hope the Klan doesn't want to burn it down, and a car.

Before a White "cop" is a White "cop, he is a White newborn/White baby boy/ White boy toddler/White boy pre-teen/White young adult/White adult. Always WHITE before any occupation is attained and after, 'til death when his White Behind departs from this life.
