She didn't get that this extreme election was not the usual BS. She helped Trump win by everywhere saying Clinton did not deserve our vote. Now she got it. …. talking to myself here….best thing I can do now is keep focused on positive and constructive projects.

I feel the same way ER, but, " immunity . . . offers prosecutors protection from lawsuits except when they have violated a clearly-established constitutional right", so you know what that means, in nearly all cases prosecutors can hide behind immunity protection no matter what they have done, and even in where a person's constitutional rights have been violated, the case would be relegated to "Civil Court" and not prosecuted in "Criminal Court".

I could say that we should learn how to apply equality in ourselves.Did you know that there's a video went popular of over the very first weekend of March. Its name, "Wealth Inequality in America," claims it all. It explains, in obvious, accessible images, that the space between the wealthiest and the poorest Americans is far vaster than most people have even imagined.

Welcome Rianna! Unfortunately, finance, personal finance and economics is something that most Americans learn at an older age rather than at a young age. African Americans in particular, (IMO), often are just surviving financially, and often that is the primary financial focus , surviving and making ends meet until the next paycheck. It is usually people who were taught from a very young age, the value of money and the importance of saving over spending, manage their finances prudently.
