Re: Proposed New Bill Would Charge Protesters With “Economic Terrorism”

Sounds like he's trying to introduce a bill like China's where they ARREST and JAIL students/citizens for protesting. But we already have laws against inciting riots but this is another way to imprison blacks and others who demonstrate against the govt. They are being so sneaky but clearly not smart. But!

It'll help Black employment if they hire Black employees; same as any other job. Nothing helps Black employment if no one wants to or hires Black employees.

Yeah, well .... unfortunately, the rules and legislative laws that are used by our government TODAY ... are the SAME ones that were used (and needed) to govern the country as it was 400 YEARS AGO!! Sadly, the typical intellectually-challenged mentality of "White men in power" from back then hasn't evolved into a higher degree of intellect by the type of "White men in power" we have today. They're not smart enough to realize that things are actually different now.

Memories of grade school. The nuns at my school had this record about George Washington Carver and they would occasionally bring a portable phonograph to class and play it for us.

Again..I think they put too much invigsis[sp] of marriage-which I also think is a stereotype. However, I do agree that a three dimensional version of the lives of real black women are needed to balance out the hype of what it means to be a black woman in America. There are all kinds of stories but once found they put a WHITE face on it and make it a movie. As if it is unordinary to be for a black woman-when it most cases we are [and have been] the ones to be the FIRST pioneers of society.

People think something will happen to cause the silent majority, the indifferent majority, the lethargic majority to become aware and active in the political process. So far in this primary season, only 11% of Democrats voted and 17% of Republicans voted, those are really pathetic turnouts considering the sorry state of affairs the country is in.
