    Who's Talking to Black Folks This Campaign Season???

    in News

    Black family. Election season is upon us and as candidate after candidate jockey for or presumed voting power one thing remains evident, the politicians of today aren't speaking to us! They talk at us. They talk over us but none are talking TO us. We are being told what to believe, who to trust, who to vote for, what is priority in our lives and what is not. We are not being asked directly what matters to us and being provided an answer with accountability measures in place. 

    Hillary Clinton, wife of what many blacks like to deem the First black president Bill Clinton, is making a second run for the presidential seat. The same woman who's brother sits on the board of the VCS Mining Company currently attempting to extract Haiti's gold deposits but has no mining experience. Black family, listen closely. If Haiti is sitting on gold and oil deposits why is a foreign, American/European extension on our family's land stealing their resources? Black woman. We know how much you love to look your best. Imagine you're in the shower or in bed and a guest you opened your doors to ends up stealing all your jewelry and accessories while at the same time leaving a meal on the table for you. How would you react? 
    Hillary Clinton, the same woman that supported Bill destroying Black and Brown families all across America with the 3 strikes rule. They admitted that the policy was detrimental to our communities. They admitted the errors in the implementation of that policy. 


    The same woman, who's husband convinced the Haitian people to stop growing their own rice and to purchase rice imports as an alternative. Again, after the fact, they admitted it was the wrong decision to force the Haitian people to make. Democrats in general are killing the Black community seducing us into being dependent on government assistance and subsidies instead of encouraging self sufficiency and independence.
