SORT BY Relevancy
The two parties have combined against us to nullify our power by a 'gentleman's agreement' of non-recognition, no matter how we vote ... May God write us down as asses if ever again we are found putting our trust in either the Republican or the Democratic Parties." - W.E.B. DuBois
The feudal barons of the Middle Ages, the economic predecessors of the capitalists of our day, declared all wars. And their miserable serfs fought all the battles. The poor, ignorant serfs had been taught to revere their masters; to believe that when their masters declared war upon one another, it was their patriotic duty to fall upon one another and to cut one another's throats for the profit and glory of the lords and barons who held them in contempt. And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles. The master class has had all to gain and nothing to lose, while the subject class has had nothing to gain and all to lose-especially their lives." - Eugene
1. Earlier generations fought and died for this right
It took the eventual passage of three constitutional amendments, the 14th, 15th and 24th, before all Black Americans could freely vote in the U.S.
After tracking voting patterns in presidential elections from 1936 to 1960, the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies found Blacks voted Democratic between 60 to 80 percent.
The police shootings in Ferguson and strained police-community relations in Minneapolis have made this a top election issue for Blacks.
4. Everything to gain, and much to lose
Some fear that depending on this election’s final result that disparities in the Black community, such as unemployment, housing, education and health could worsen.
Liberalism vs. conservatism is at the heart of American politics. And while engaging in healthy debate is encouraged, stepping over the line of respectful disagreement and engaging in personal attacks or hate speech is never okay — for either side.
Based on her article Six Reasons Why the Liberal Disdain of Conservatives is Wrong, Shannon Ridgway will discuss why the liberal, feminist disdain towards conservatives is problematic, and how those who identify as liberals and feminists can be more understanding toward the opposing political party.
