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...

Shortly after these brothers were arrested, the story about an FBI plant was plastered all over the front page of the NY Daily News. He had been ratted out, given up and I believe was the same gentleman who attempted to sue the government for outing his cover. The majority of the black people in this area DO NOT BELIEVE that these men came up with and executed this plan on their own. I don't believe that they should be in federal prison for this. People that I know who knew these people from...

Why was Baltimore's Chief Batts Fired? One word: Scapegoat. Baltimore is one of the very worst cities in America regarding gang life. gang activity, drugs, murders and crime YET none of that prior that wasn't being handled by the Baltimore Police Chief wasn't enough to get him fired but the police murder of Freddy Grey, the glaring national spot light and the peaceful protest and riots (no where near close to what happened in Ferguson, MO) that got out of control (burning down a local CVS...

I expect some Chinese company to have a dual-core Android tablet for under $100 soon. The specs should be: dual-core at least 1 GHz one gigabyte of RAM 8 gig of storage and a microSD card slot resolution 1024 x 600 wi-fi b/g/n The trouble is sometimes their stuff is very good for the price and sometimes it is crap. It needs to develop a track record. These two may be good but they are not under $100 yet. http://www.ramos-tablet.com/ra...-tablet-pc-16gb.html...

It was great to hear Malcolm X scolding and schooling FBI. I love it when he says y'all should be expending this energy finding who killed those 4 little girls in Birmingham. Then when FBI retorts with some bullchips about people asking why don't they look into the Muslims, Malcolm X was perfect in his delivery when he said " The Muslims don't bomb churches. We don't break the law".

I am old enough to remember the old Black/Negro argument. I looked up Negro in my dictionary. It is from Latin. It means Black . Black comes from Anglo-Saxon. The problem is people get emotional about words. We are supposed to argue about which HONKY LANGUAGE we are called by. I thought it was dumb when I was in 10th grade.

The racist corporate establishment knows this, which is why they told their political servants to stop creating policy that invests in rank and file Americans. They want a permanent working poor class and a permanent criminal class too so they may profit from despair while white people are lifted and given more opportunities through white privilege.
