It doesn't matter who stayed home. What matters is the people who actually showed up and were not allowed to excercise their right to vote.
see you missed my point, i never said it was ok.
the point i was making is that due to those who stayed home and the numbers are in the 10s of 1000's -- their numbers failed to make up for those who were not allowed to vote-
are you saying that if every black person who was old enough to vote went out and voted that day it would not have matter????
and that is the point, when they voice was needed THEY FAILED TO SHOW UP!!!!!!!!!!1
the tactics of making it hard for BLACK folks to vote is NOT NEW MY FRIEND- read your history, so once again we are back to TELLING THE STORY, WHITEY MADE IT HARD FOR ME TO VOTE so i ain't going
what do you think struggle mean- ========="Power is not given up by anyone- black or white, it must be taken"
and in the case of this country that method is thru the vote -- black folks don't understand that --they can't blame whitey
IF we devoted as much time to such life issues as we do to other issues we would not be in the condition we are in today
does that mean we would be on the same level with the white community, probably not, BUT WE WOULD BE FUTHER ALONG than we are now
i look at the blacks from africa and the islands -- they come here and in 5 yrs they got their own biz and homes-
we cannot continue to tell the story and then wait to see what happens to us
yes tell the story--like the jews who say "NEVER AGAIN"---------- and then move forward
THATS MY 2
